About Us - Bridal

At Those Were The Days, we’re also vintage bridal wear specialists and have recently opened a fabulous dedicated vintage bridal boutique in Edinburgh, right next door to our vintage fashion boutique.  

We began selling our exclusive vintage bridal wear collection when we launched in 2011 and after years of growing our collection and helping lots of brides from all over the UK and overseas to find their perfect dress we decided to expand our business and opened our brand new dedicated vintage bridal boutique in June 2017.

Our rare and ever changing bridal collection is internationally sourced and spans the Edwardian era to the 1990s.   It includes glamorous gowns and dresses, suits, jewellery and accessories such as veils, tiaras, hats, headpieces and handbags, and fur stoles, wraps and capes.  We specialise in beautiful, easy to wear, romantic dresses you won’t find anywhere else.  

All of the dresses in the collection are chosen because they are beautiful, glamorous dresses and because they are wonderful examples of each era’s styles.  Each dress is also selected because of the high quality of its design, fabric and craftsmanship.  Our dresses are a little bit quirky, modest, a bit more alternative and often quite rock n roll, so they provide the perfect alternative to modern wedding dresses.  And as with our fashion collections, every item is expertly cleaned and restored before it arrives in the boutique.

We believe that you should wear the dress, the dress shouldn’t wear you.  We want our brides to feel amazing, relaxed and comfortable.  You should be able to move around, hug people, sit down, eat and dance the night away in your dress and most importantly you should feel your most beautiful self when you’re wearing it.  We will help guide you to find your perfect dress in our relaxed, easy going and fun appointment. Your bridal stylist will help ease any nerves and will guide and support you and provide honest insight so that you can find a look that is perfect for your style, your silhouette and for your wedding.

A vintage wedding dress is a truly unique item both in terms of it’s design and it’s fit, and because of this we don’t offer our vintage wedding dresses for sale online.  Instead we’d love you to visit our boutique to see the current collection so that we can help guide you through the wide choice of styles and help you find your dream dress.   

At any one time we have around 175 wedding dresses in the showroom. Our vintage wedding gowns range in price from approximately £300 to £900, with some really special and rare pieces priced above this, and some below.  

With enough time, we are also able to help source dresses and accessories for brides who might have their hearts set on a particular style or era.  

Our bridal photo gallery is a fantastic source for inspiration and showcases some of the styles we typically might have in the boutique.  Why not have a look through the pictures and see some of the beautiful dresses we’ve fallen in love with.
