This was the first shop I went to and I was impressed with the number of dresses they had in stock readily available to try on. 8 dresses later and I found the one! Rhian was so helpful and I have ended up with a beautiful dress that was nothing like I thought I would be buying but I couldn’t be happier! Absolutely love it! Thank you for everything. More...

This was the first place i visited to try on some wedding dresses and I was so impressed with the wide range of readily available dresses to try on (i tried on 8) and i managed to find THE dress! And it was an absolute bargain! Rhian is incredible and made me feel very comfortable and at ease. 100% recommend these guys for your dress needs! More...

I had the most pleasant time whilst at new beginnings bridal boutique. I had been to quite a few boutiques already and couldn't find a dress within my budget and one place even told me i was too large to wear a fitted dress!! I really had given up hope. But then I saw the dress on facebook and knew i wanted it but i had to try it on. Rhian even offered to post it to me but i decided to make the hour and a half trip down to try it on. When we arrived we were offered drinks, we were allowed to look around at other dresses and accessories too which other boutiques wouldn't allow us to look. Within seconds of seeing myself in the dress i was in tears. Tears of joy though! Rhian then let me try on a few veils as well to see what length I wanted. I also explained about my disability which means I struggle to wear heels. Rhian chose out a pair of gorgeous block heel shoes for me to try so i wouldn't be in pain and could see what the shoes were like. Rhian was absolutely amazing, the customer service was impeccable. The price was unbelievable. And the free gift is just the cutest. I cannot recommendthis shop enough and i hope my review does it justice. ❤ More...

I visited Rhian's shop on 8th June with my mum and godmother to find my perfect dress. Rhian was so helpful, and her professional yet relaxed approach was amazing. She knew the exact dress to flatter my body, and helped pick my perfect dress! A beautifully kept shop with lots of selection! Would highly recommend New Beginnings to anyone! More...

I had the most amazing experience today and New Beginnings , Rhian was so kind and helpful and helped me find the perfect dress for my wedding day. I was very confused after already trying on over 20 dresses in other stores but she helped me understand what I wanted and wasn't pushy at all. I walked away with a dress I not only love but I cannot wait to wear! Rhian is so passionate about what she does and I really felt she wanted to help me and not just make a sale. I would highly recommend to anyone who I dress shopping to come here , I am so glad I did. Thank you so much for all you help and advice and more than anything for helping find my perfect dress ! ❤️ More...

I visited new beginnings in November in search of my wedding dress. They were so welcoming and made you feel comfortable. I knew as soon as I put on the dress it was the one for me. They went through how I could change the sleeves that I did not like and just gave me amazing advice. I would like to say a massive thank you. We had our wedding last month and everyone said how lovely my dress was. More...

Amazing! After being my 5th shop visiting I was really tearing my hair out but this lovely lady helped me to feel calm, just try on and few and know exactly what I’m looking for. I may have found THE dress Also I got asked if I wanted a drink- which after not being asked this in any was a massive thing (especially if you’re in there for 2 hours) thank you so much x More...

Bridesmaid dresses has easily been the hardest and most stressful part of wedding planning so far! Having trawled through the internet and around more London shops than I care to remember and seeing the vilest of dresses, I was on the verge of giving up and firing my poor bridesmaids! Luckily for then my mother (who was obviously sick of my whining and complaining by that point!) took over and quickly discovered New Beginnings, a gorgeous shop for both wedding and bridesmaid dresses. Their range of styles and colours was lovely - there were a number I could have picked - and would fit into any wedding budget. But the best thing about this shop is Rhian who could not have been more helpful and lovely! She really understands how important these decisions are and at no point made me feel bad about taking up so much of her time agonising and changing my mind! I have found that often, once money has been paid, shop owners stop caring but not Rhian - she has been in touch since the order was placed, offering alternatives when something wasn’t quite right, and now I am convinced that I have exactly what I want! Just can’t wait for them all to arrive! Couldn’t recommend New Beginnings more - who would have thought that a little shop in Bletchley could do better than the whole of London!! Def worth a visit! Thank you!! More...

My mum and I came to the shop to look at wedding dresses for the first time. Rhian made me feel so comfortable when I felt nervous!She was incredibly knowledgable about each dress I tried on and gave me lots of different options on how I could accessorise and change the dresses to make them exactly how I wanted! We really enjoyed our first experience and I will defiantly be back with my bridesmaids to try the dresses again!!Thank you so much!!! More...

What a fantastic experience!! Thank you Rhian, I found two exquisite dresses (day & evening) it didn’t break the bank and you made it so much fun. Nothing was too much trouble!! Thank you so much.

Fantastic service, tried on so many dresses but left empty handed on first visit as liked top half of one and bottom half of others. Rhian was a superstar and had a really good idea of what I wanted on a tiny budget and when new stock was delivered I had 3 to choose from. Needless to say I found "the one" and said yes to the dress. Would definitely recommend over and above certain "warehouse style providers" as the choice is greater, they carry more sizes and the service is outstanding!! Julia Davies More...

New beginnings - what a lush experience!! Had such a lovely welcome when we first came in. Great advice on what shapes of dresses to wear and honest opinions on suitability. A very personal touch, great chat, tea/coffee on standby(pretty good too). Bought my dress today from there. I will be going returning soon for flower girl & bridesmaid dresses. Once again, thank you! More...

Rhian was an absolute delight during my best friend’s bridal appointment this evening. For 2 solid hours she gave her undivided attention, making my friend feel calm, comfortable and most importantly, valued. She listened to every one of my friend’s likes and dislikes, carefully and expertly choosing dresses to narrow down the search. Though we didn’t find “the one” we came out with an explicit list of things to look out for moving forward. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! More...

Thank you to Rhian who helped me finally find my dream dress!!!This was my 8th bridal shop and I must have tried on over 50 dresses! New Beginnings stock the gorgeous LiRi Bridal Collection from Israel so I didn't think twice about travelling down from Preston to try on the range.....and luckily I found it!!!The shop also support local charities such as the RSPCA and help ill and struggling brides too, so I was so pleased to be buying from such a kind person. I can't wait to come back and try on my dress when it arrives. Sadie xxx More...

What an amazing afternoon I had looking for my wedding dress at New Beginnings! Rhian was lovely and made the experience unforgettable. The choice of dresses was amazing and she was so patient with me trying on so many different styles. I had a tight budget and it was no problem for her to work with. I didn’t feel pressured or made to feel awkward about my available funds and I’ve come away with a beautiful dress that I felt a million dollars in when I tried it on! Thank you Rhian x More...

Her dress is really beautiful, I definitely will return because the choices are enorm and Rhian and her mum Gail are really helpful and patient. Love you both x More...

This is a wonderful bridal shop. There was a technical mix up with my appointment and the shop was shut when I got there, but Rhian was on standby on fb and came back out to open up! Thank you so much!! The shop is full of stunning dresses and I was blown away by the friendly service. I’m really excited to go back with my Mum and sister next month to show them! Hopefully I’ll come away having ordered one ☺️ More...

Rhian was so warm and welcoming, and she found me the perfect dress on the first try. She helped me find the perfect accessories for it and reassured me I wasn't the only bride that has come in on her own looking for THE dress. Would highly recommend!

Well what can I say... I have been searching for months and months for the perfect wedding dress,I'm very particular. I decided to post on a wedding site too see if anyone could help me and out pops new beginnings!! They messaged me and asked what it was I was after, style, color, shape etc. Rhian then started to send over pictures and I was floored with the most beautiful dress I have ever seen, I tried the exact same dress on in a designer boutique at an eye watering £1200 it was just impossible to spend that amount of money! Rhian then went out her way to go too her boutique and take pictures of the dress on the mannequin! I have chose my dress,veil,shawl and tiara, they are stunning I'm paying my deposit tomorrow to secure my dress and driving over to Milton Keynes to then pick my dress up I'm blinking over the moon and so happy with the custom of care I have received!! I highly recommend this boutique More...

The people that run this shop are amazing! Both me and my partner where looking for bridesmaid dresses and the ladies couldn't do enough for us.
They where friendly, accommodating and we didnt feel rushed at all when we wanted to try just about every dress in our sizes.
Personally, I had a fear of trying on dresses due to my own misfortune at my own wedding but the ladies reassured me and were very patient. I highly recommend this shop and will be spreading the word about them

We got my daughters prom dress from new beginnings , the ladies were both so lovely and helpful. This was the first shop we went to for prom dress shopping but we didn’t need to go anywhere else , there was a good selection of dresses and at really reasonable prices, they also had lots of nice sparkly shoes and accessories.
The wedding dresses they had were beautiful , I won’t be needing one but it’s always nice looking at them �
A lovely shop with really nice ladies who were happy for my daughter to try on lots of dresses , they were so patient with us and were wonderful and honest with their comments , my daughter was on cloud 9 when she left and looked amazing on her prom night !
Thank you x

Helping brides feel and look their best. Seeing them glow when they are in the right dress and are full of confidence and beauty!

My own bad experience when wedding dress shopping.
I wanted to start a boutique with honest opinions, a friendly atmosphere and affordable luxury

Our reviews speak for themselves!
On top of that, we have an ever expanding range, a wide range of sizes and a lovely cup of tea or coffee waiting for you!
