The bridal shop experience can be a stress-filled time for a lot of nearlyweds, but if you’re plus size, disabled or don’t fit into the standard ‘bridal mould’ then it can feel like a herculean task to find somewhere to go.

Dress shopping should be one of the most fun and exciting parts of the wedding planning process, but for a lot of brides, it’s anything but. In a perfect world, every nearlywed would be able to walk into any boutique and be greeted by rows and rows of dresses in their size, at their price point, by stylists who know just the right thing to say… but in the real world, shopping can take a bit more research and preparation.

There must be a place where inclusivity is not just a buzz word but a practice, and there are dress samples available in multiple sizes to fit everyone… right?

Well, there is! Welcome to TDR Bridal Birmingham, a fairytale bridal boutique that’s much more than a store – it’s a place full of happy vibes and a constant feeling of celebration. It’s a place of love and understanding, a safe place for brides to experiment and express themselves without fear of judgement or critique… plus they have over 600 dress samples available to try on from a size UK8 to UK32!

TDR Bridal are stockists of Enzoani, Justin Alexander, Mori Lee, Rebecca Ingram, House of Mooshki, and Sottero & Midgley and more! You can see their full designer list in the collections section of on their website.

A Haven of Inclusivity

What sets TDR Bridal apart is their dedicated staff. Their support, care and honesty will make you make feel seen, listened to and understood.  This is a fully inclusive bridal shop experience where every bride, regardless of size or style preference, can find their dream dress. Their ‘One Size Does Not Fit All’ campaign, which we published last summer, is a testament to their commitment to inclusivity and diversity, too.

From boho vibes, chic short mini dresses, elegant jumpsuits, to classic A-lines, the selection is also just as diverse and beautiful as all the brides who visit.

The TDR Experience

Once you have booked your appointment, you will be sent to a client portal where you get exclusive access to all their current, instore dress styles (with all the prices) where you can browse before you come in and ‘favourite’ the styles you love. This is such a good idea and really helps them as well. It gives them good idea of your vibe and the look that you’re going for before you step foot in the shop meaning they’ll be ready to go as soon as you arrive with some great suggestions.

Once you arrive for your appointment, you’ll be welcomed to your dedicated suite and offered a range of specialist teas, coffees, hot chocolates, cocktails and fizz to choose from, all for FREE!

They also don’t charge for appointments (praise be!) and appointment times are longer than the standard 45mins to an hour that you might be used to. With TDR Bridal you’ll get two full hours to browse and try-on, without any pressure or rush. There’s also free on-site parking, finance options available and they’re open seven days a week!
