Welcome to our creative wedding dress shop in Worthing Sussex where you can find exclusive designer wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses that come with nothing but uniqueness and individuality in mind. Established in 1994 and originally known as Confetti Bridal Gowns we are so pleased to announce that we are the longest serving wedding dress shop in Worthing Sussex. In 2018 we expanded, re branded and changed our name to Carolyn Anne's Bespoke Bridal to reflect what we do best (Customise)
We are not your average bridal shop here in Worthing Sussex as we have no limits! You can customise any of our dresses to the exact way you want them, design your own wedding dress, have it made to your individual size to fit and you will pleased to know we hold larger sizes in stock.
A few comments below from the owner....
"My name is Lea and i am the owner and founder of Carolyn Anne`s Bespoke Bridal, i wanted to be different to the general bridal shop and put a stop to the idea that every bride should be a size zero so i offer larger samples to try on (Size 6-30) with most being over a high street size 18. I am a realist and refuse to only hold skinny samples in stock for you to try on to then be embarrassed, humiliated and to lose all the magic of wedding dress shopping".
"I have my very own wedding dress makers and designers so i can offer you every style dress you can think of (Design your own if you like or take inspiration from my collection). I do not offer you the usual designer dresses that everyone has seen before so all dresses at Carolyn Anne's Bespoke Bridal are unique and with my very own customised label "Pure Joie".
" i want my brides to feel comfortable so i offer complete privacy, unlimited time and welcome any bride regardless of sexuality, gender, race, belief or disability. I do not judge anyone and every customer is my friend as soon as they walk in and i promise to make you feel comfortable".
We provide Wedding dresses, Bridesmaid dresses for any age and Accessories including customised bridal belts, boleros, veils, Mother of the bride outfits, Prom dresses and Mens ties and pocket squares. We hold around 30 of our own collection of wedding dresses in stock for you to see and try on and around 40 bridesmaid dresses.
All wedding attire that is customised will be made to your choice of 300 colours to choose from, any style and made to your individual size.
Displaying a stunning range of wedding dresses with our exclusive label "Pure Joie" in our showroom plus offering you the choice to cutomise any of our dresses or design your own means you will have a whole array of choice with us.
Realistic sizes is what brides want so is what we offer....From sizes 6 to 30 in stock (Most being over a high street 18) and us making your dress to your own individual sizing, you never need to worry that you can't find anything to fit you.

Why do we charge a booking fee?
1...To ensure we have serious brides only (This will stop girls that are not even getting married wanting a free afternoon of playing dress up) Yes this happens! We are a wedding business that helps brides find their dress for their special day, we do not offer a free afternoon for girls just playing dress up and not even getting married sorry!
2...We work by appointment only and we are giving you a dedicated time slot in our diary which not only puts our plans on hold but also turns away anyone else wanting your date and time. If you have paid your fee and you reschedule to another date as long as you have given at least 24 hours to change then your fee is still safe and your booking is still secure.
3...You are getting our expertise and professional advice regardless if you buy a dress with us (We do not tell you that your fee will come off of the price of your dress as that makes brides feel pressured. If you do not buy at least you have had a great experience of trying on lots of lovely dresses and gained lots of knowledge whilst you were here.
4...Protecting our dresses... We have had damages to our dresses by brides mistreating them if they are too small by trying to force them on and a few times we have been left with dresses to fix.
If brides are not happy to pay our fee then we understand and we wish you good luck in your continued search for your wedding dress.
All booking fees paid including Cancellations and No shows are non refundable and we thank you for your understanding.
