New Beginnings is a family run Bridal Boutique based within Fenny Stratford, Milton Keynes.
Our aim is to provide affordable luxury and an unbeatable experience to every bride, no matter your budget, personal style, orientation etc!
New Beginnings was born from the experiences Rhian and her Mum, Gail received whilst wedding dress shopping.
They felt that the way many boutiques were run was outdated and could be inaccessible to most brides; whether that was due to really expensive dresses, tiny sample sizes or just plain, bad service.
Rhian has a background in fashion design and worked within a highly commended company as a Customer Service Manager for 8 years.
New Beginnings opened in April 2018, initially selling ex samples dresses. This was to test the waters and see if brides would appreciate what could be offered.
In September 2018, the business really took form and we began to stock made to order dresses.
At New Beginnings, we do it differently...
We carefully select our designers for their quality, design, structure and price.
By doing so, we can bring you amazing quality, designer dresses and accessories for less than your expect.
We stock stunning, fresh and unique designs, so you have something special and completely 'you' for your special day.
The boutique is yours for your 2 hour appointment.
You have our undivided attention, there are plenty of hot and cold refreshments for you and your entire bridal party, we have books and toys to entertain the little ones, and one of the biggest selections of dresses and accessories to choose from for miles around!
Will the samples fit me?
When should I order my dress?
What happens during my appointment?
The simple answer is YES!
Unlike most boutiques, we carry our samples in a bridal 18 and 24.
If you are smaller than this, some clipping and creative pinning shows you how the dress would fit, and if you're larger, the dress may not fasten but a little imagination goes a long way!
When you arrive, you will be offered drinks and slippers (which you can keep!).
We will then have a conversation about your search so far, your vision for your wedding, and what your dream dress is like.
If this is your very first appointment, we will try every silhouette so you can decide which you like the most, then start working through all other aspects of the dress, until we find The One!
Most of our dresses take 4 months to be made; however, some can be made quicker than that.
We would recommend starting your search around 12 months beforehand, and ideally no later than 6 months before.
What's your price range?
What underwear should I wear?
Can I take pictures?
We encourage you to take pictures so you can look back on your appointment and the dresses you tried on.
It's also really helpful if you feel you need more time to decide as you will be able to refer to the picture.
Try to wear nude underwear and a strapless bra.
A lot of dresses have built in support so a bra may not be necessary, but we can discuss that during your appointment.
Feel free to bring your suck-in underwear!
And if you don't have nude underwear or a strapless bra, don't worry!
We can make anything work with a little creativity!
Our dresses are handpicked to provide you with a huge choice of styles with exceptional quality for affordable prices!
Our prices start at just £200 and go up to £2000.
