Our Bridal Shop in Exeter

About The Bridal Emporium

As independent retailers, we try very hard to provide outstanding service and we're always keen to stock those latest styles and designs that have that real “wow” factor. We really believe we offer an appealing, calm atmosphere and the kind of service you've probably been missing whilst shopping elsewhere. 


We originally opened over 18 years ago in the old Princesshay with the aim of offering all the attire and accessories a bride and her female guests would require for the forthcoming wedding. It was soon evident that the success of the business meant a much larger shop was needed and in January 1999 the business expanded into much larger premises at 105-106 Fore Street, Exeter EX4 3HY. The much bigger shop meant brides can relax in spacious surroundings and in a stress-free atmosphere whilst choosing their wedding gown.

“The Bridal Emporium is a family owned business and we are passionate about providing excellent personal service and offering stylish, quality gowns and accessories at competitive prices” says co-owner Jenny Billington, “we are proud of providing an unrivalled quality service to many happy customers, some of whom have travelled a considerable distance especially to see us and ultimately find the dress of their dreams”

We can cater for all types of wedding, anything from a short cocktail-type dress to a “Cinderella” style ball gown. We also have an excellent range of;

· Bridesmaids
· Prom dresses
· Eveningwear
· Mother-of-the-bride
· Flowergirls
· Page boy suits

Our chic mother of the bride outfits and cruise wear can be completed with shoes and bags dyed to match. Of course, we have all the accessories as well; veils, headreseses, tiaras, lingerie, jewellery and wedding shoes. With new dresses and accessories being added to our collection throughout the year, The Bridal Emporium are bound to have that dress that really catches your eye!
