The wonderful Debbie and her fabulous mum are amazing. I’ve never felt so welcome and so at home. I get quite anxious with new things but this place is somewhere where I would keep coming back too and recommended to everyone searching for that perfect dress. Even if one of your parents have passed away, giving a gift for my bouquet to put Dad’s picture was just so thoughtful. I literally cannot wait to go back for my fittings and show my mum and bridesmaid my beautiful dress. You guys are stars!!

Debbie and her mum are fantastic and truly treat you like you’re the only person in the world getting married! I loved my experience and would love to do it all over again! One of the best days of my life –
I can’t wait to pick up my dress soon!

Such an amazing group of ladies. They found me my dream dress and was so helpful. Give me and my girls all the time in the world to find what we were looking for, wedding dress and bridesmaids dresses! Amazing shop and amazing hospitality… would recommend any bride going there for their dresses! Felt very comfortable

Where to begin? Debbie and her team are amazing!!!! 5* is not enough stars to rate them! I wasn’t sure where to start when it came to dress shopping I had no idea on what style or shape or colour I wanted let alone what the bridesmaid was going to wear, but these lovely ladies were on hand to give a very personal service and the guidance and support that was very much needed. They are very welcoming very helpful and nothing is ever rushed or too much for them..they take their time to help you find ‘the one’ and even help to find the perfect bridesmaid dress and not forgetting an endless supply of tissues for when you family members get a bit emotional. I never thought I’d find my perfect dress and would be endlessly shopping around let alone find it on a weekend I happened to be visiting family in Minehead….despite being 200 miles away Debbie and her team are always on hand if you’ve got any questions or queries and make the whole process a wonderful experience not a stressful one. I would definitely recommend Somerset Bridal they are truly amazing….Keep up the amazing work ladies you do a fantastic job!!!

I don’t know where to start! I hated wedding dress shopping until I found this gem of a shop in Minehead. Deb and her mum have so much patience and couldn’t be more friendly helpful and lovely if they tried! They put every fibre of themselves into this business and it shows. I live 2 hours away but it is so worth the travelling! If you are a nervous bride or anxious about choosing ‘the dress’ then please try Somerset Bridal as they will make you feel completely at ease. I simply couldn’t recommend them enough.

Debbie and her Mum are absolutely wonderful I felt so relaxed and comfortable trying on all the beautiful dresses! You helped me find the one, I never believed in the feeling when you try a dress on but when I tried it on it happened! Thank you so much for your time and help that you gave me today!! Xxxxx

Annabelle L

I didn’t realise it was possible to feel like you’ve made new friends in less than two hours, but with Debbie and her lovely mum you really do. We felt sad to leave them! On top of that they have the most amazing selection of beautiful wedding dresses for every bride. Dress shopping hadn’t been the experience I was hoping for and I’d found it really hard, but Debbie and her mum made that all better and gave us the most special afternoon. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, I can’t tell you what you have both done for my confidence. You deserve every 5 star rating you have and I would tell every bride not to go anywhere else! xx

Hayley M

I choose my dress in December and since been back to try it on again, I am so in love with my dress and so excited to wear it on my special day in July. I absolutely loved my experience picking my dress and was treated like a princess. Thank you so much for all the help I was given.

FAQs about us

Simply For Everyone

How are you different from other bridal boutiques & wedding dress shops?

Most wedding dress boutiques order sample dresses in size 10 or 12 or smaller. This means that their gowns only fit brides sized  8 or 10 (crazy eh!). Somerset Bridal is different; we pride ourselves on having the area’s largest selection of modern, contemporary styles in all sizes with over half of our gowns in larger sample sizes right up to a 36. This means that no matter what that silly number on your clothes happens to be you can actually try on wedding dresses to see how they would fit your body.

I am not a Plus Size bride

We cater for ALL sizes, our mantra is that we are 'unapologetically inclusive'. So whether you fit in a size 8 or a size 36 we firmly believe that you are not skinny-size or plus-size, you are WOMAN-SIZE. What matters is that we understand the female body in all its exquisite forms and size truly does not matter when you are shopping for a wedding gown. Our sample sizes are often larger so that we can help every bride and no-one has to imagine what a dress could look like on them. We have lots of clever tricks to pin a gown to your figure.

What makes you an unapologetically inclusive wedding dress experience?

We aren't like other bridal stores we who order dresses in sizes 10 or 12. This means that their gowns only fit brides sized  8 or 10 (crazy eh!). At Somerset Bridal we are different. We have one of the largest selection of modern, contemporary styles in all sizes with over half of our gowns in larger sample sizes right up to a 46. This means that no matter what that silly number on your clothes happens to be you can actually try on wedding dresses to see how they would fit your body.
