Brides Do Good launches pop-up wedding boutique at Bicester Village

Budding brides can snap up pre-loved and sample designer dresses for less when Bicester Village welcomes back pop-up boutique, Brides do Good, with proceeds going to support Too Young to Wed charity.

Oxfordshire’s Bicester Village will welcome back luxurious pop-up bridal boutique, Brides Do Good, this spring, marrying fashion with a force for change.

Returning to the Oxfordshire shopping village from Saturday 14 April to Tuesday 15 May 2018, Brides Do Good will offer pre-loved and sample designer gowns to budding brides for less, with up to two-thirds of the proceeds going to charity, Too Young to Wed.

With dresses starting from £500, this year’s pop-up boutique will build on the success of last year’s event, with Monique Lhuillier, Reem Acra and Pronovias just some of the iconic designers set to be among the offerings, along with, for the first time, Peter Langner and Sassi Holford.

Visitors can expect a tranquil setting at the Brides do Good boutique, which promises a calming haven of style and romance, offering a lovely setting for browsing coveted designer gowns – expect names including Elie Saab, Ian Stuart, Suzanne Neville, Caroline Castigliano, Amsale Aberra, Maggie Sottero and Stewart Parvin.

Brides do Good is dedicated to raising vital funds for Too Young to Wed, a charity dedicated to eradicating child marriage across the globe by 2030. The initiative encourages women to utilise their power and effect change wherever possible, recognising that fashion is an increasingly positive platform for inspiring change.

Speaking of the enterprise, Brides do Good founder, Chantal Khoueiry, said: ‘I am delighted to return to Bicester Village this spring, to celebrate the anniversary of the successful partnership between Brides do Good and The Bicester Village Shopping Collection.

‘Last year, brides-to-be from the UK, China, Brazil, Greece, India and the Middle East all found their dream dresses at the Brides do Good pop-up boutique and raised more than £18,000 for our partner charities, which are focused on protecting millions of vulnerable young girls and their communities.

‘This year the boutique is bigger and better, with hundreds of dresses from the world’s most coveted bridal designers, which are available from £500. We look forward to welcoming more brides-to-be and building on last year’s results so that together we can make a difference and end child marriage within one generation, one dress at a time.’
