Mother of the Bride Shop

Modern Dresses and Outfits  

We have now opened our own dedicated Mother of the Bride and Groom shop just next door to Chameleon Bride, at 908 Christchurch Road. 

We are a treasure trove for mums to find modern, beautiful outfits for that most special of occasions. 

Those photos will hang on those walls for a long time, so we are here to make sure you look and feel fabulous! 

We stock leading Designers such as Veni Infantino, Gabriella Sanchez, John Charles, Ian Stuart, Luis Civit and Fely Campo. You don’t have to worry about someone else wearing the same outfit from the high street!

We are size inclusive as we stock a Plus size too and have dresses in sizes UK8-UK24.

Mother of the Bride Hats 

Chameleon stocks coordinating accessories such as hats, fascinators and hatinators. 

Mother of the Bride Alterations

We also offer an inhouse seamstress who can ensure that your chosen outfit fits your body absolutely perfectly.

Book your Appointment

Due to COVID-19 we are operating on a strictly by appointment only basis. This is to limit the number of people in the shop and to ensure that we have the time to steam clean all items of clothing between each appointment.

Mother of the Bride Size Charts

We do find that special Occasionwear can sometimes fit differently to high street clothing, and some ladies find that they have to go up a size, sometime two. Do not panic about this – you have not gained weight just because a label says you are a size larger than you are used to!
