LOCATED above the Tenovus charity shop on Gloucester Road lies a treasure trove of bridal dresses, awaiting to be discovered.
Visitors to the store's bridal department will uncover a spacious area with rails of wedding attire and a large private fitting room for brides-to-be to try on their pre-loved gowns. Comfortable seating also allows for friends and family to relax.
Located at 181 Gloucester Road, the store stocks bridal gowns, accessories, bridesmaid dresses, groom suits, mother of the bride outfits, and prom dresses.
Out of the 66 shops across Wales and the South West of England, the Gloucester Road store is the only shop to have a bridal department.
All of the dresses - brand-new and second-hand - donated to shops across the two regions are sent directly to the Gloucester Road store. Dresses range from £25 to £300. Original 1950s dresses, and designer gowns are also available to purchase.
As well as selling wedding attire, the shop also welcomes donated bridal outfits to sell in its department. Giving a dress will help raise vital funds for cancer research and support for patients and family members.
The store is open Monday to Saturday, 9am-5pm. No appointment is needed, but customers are able to call to arrange a special visit.
Established in 1943, Tenovus has a long history of carrying out research into the causes and treatment of cancer, and runs a freephone cancer support line (0808 808 1010) for anyone affected by cancer.
