Email: York@bridalroguegallery.co.uk

Opening hours: Monday-Friday 10am-6pm, Saturdays 9am-5pm, and occasional Sundays: 11am-5pm. It’s best to make an appointment as sometimes the shop may be closed for other brides’ dress fittings.

Car parking: There are public car parks around the centre of York, but no on-street parking near the shop due to the nature of York’s historical narrow lanes.

Wheelchair access: No.

Style: Premium refined luxury for well-heeled brides.

Price range: Under £100 up to £4,000

Mother of the Bride brands stocked: No.

Accessories brands stocked: Rachel Simpson, Jenny Packham, Benjamin Adams, Irregular Choice, Stephanie Browne, Halo & Co, Girls Love Pearls, Ivory & Co, Lilly Bella, and Richard Designs.

Men’s suit hire: No.

Why we like it:  One of three Bridal Rogue Gallery boutiques (the others are in London and Harrogate), this is a little gem just moments from York’s most picturesque shopping street, The Shambles. Open since 1999, this is the second of owner Catriona’s boutiques, which all share a similar vibe of relaxed luxury, a refined sanctuary from the lively hubbub of the city outside.

As well as a range of well-known names like Pronovias and Ian Stuart, this dress shop also carries the lesser spotted labels like vintage-inspired Lou Lou and the owner’s eponymous couture creations, which have been sold in Harrods.

But it’s not just wedding dresses here, there’s a lovely range of bridesmaids’ dresses by Ghost, as well as a wide selection of those all-important accessories by leading designers such as Jenny Packham and Stephanie Browne, not to mention the slightly more unusual shoes by Irregular Choice. Time to get your bling on!

Bridal brands stocked: Rolling in Roses (in-house designer, made to order), plus a range of real vintage wedding dresses, and bespoke couture creations.

Bridesmaid brands stocked: No, but they could possibly source these for you.

Mother of the Bride brands stocked: No.

Accessories brands stocked: Own brand veils and belts, plus vintage finds.

Men’s suit hire: No.

Why we like it: There’s something a bit different about Glory Days. It doesn’t have a shop front, and is up three floors of a listed building in the centre of York. It’s for people in the know, but it’s also all about friendly, accommodating service, and making your vision a reality. The studio itself is a breath of fresh air with a minimalist mid-century vibe: clean and uncluttered.

Then there’s the dresses. One of York’s only vintage bridal shops, Hayley has a wonderful edit of genuine vintage gowns, with over 150 in stock at any given time. Not only that, but Glory Days is also home to her line of vintage-inspired gowns, Rolling in Roses, which are available to customise in different fabrics and colours.

Love vintage but can’t find quite the right dress? Don’t worry, Hayley is an accomplished seamstress and can bring your dream dress to life.
