New Beginnings is a family run Bridal Boutique based within Fenny Stratford, Milton Keynes.
We have an aim to provide affordable luxury and an unbeatable experience; making every brides dream a reality.
New Beginnings began after experiences we had received whilst wedding dress shopping as a family.
We felt that there was something missing in the industry; everyone should feel welcome, comfortable and valued as a customer, no matter what your budget, personal style, orientation etc!
We believe that you should be made to feel like a bride in a friendly, relaxed setting; not made to feel unable to speak your mind or like you are 'just another sale'
We opened New Beginnings in April 2018, selling ex samples dresses.
These were dresses which had been used in other boutiques for brides to try on before ordering their own.
We ensured the dresses were cleaned and any repairs that were needed had taken place.
The business started doing very well and our customer service was being recognised.
We did encounter an issue with the ex-sample dresses however; and that was that there was only ever one of each dress, and if a bride loved the dress but it wasn't in her size or able to be altered to fit, there was very little that could be done.
This was the point at which we reassessed our business and decided that made to order dresses would be the best option; however, we were determined to keep costs low still..
Ever since, we have been contacted by multiple designers, all wanting us to stock their designs.
As we are such a sought after boutique, it gives us the ability to be able to very carefully select the dresses we will stock.
This means we can bring you the very best designs available from some of the most talented and creative designers around!
We do not work with some of the most common names in Bridal.
This is due to there already being so many stockists of these designers and styles.
In contrast, we work with designers that are less of a 'household name' to bring you something special, unique, fresh and stunning!
For us, the most important part of our job is listening.
We are here to help you find your perfect dress and will use our expertise to do so.
We aren't interested in making a sale (although it is a bonus!), we are interested in helping you on your journey to your happily ever after!
We operate on an appointment only basis. These are bookable between the hours of 10:00-20:00 Monday-Sunday.
Appointments are for 2 hours.
From our experience, this is the right amount of time needed to find the perfect dress.
If you would like a longer or shorter appointment, please contact us to discuss your requirements.
