Do I have to make an appointment?
Absolutely not! We're not that kind of shop. Just turn up during opening times and we'll be happy to help. If you can't visit during opening hours just drop us an email on and we'll happily accommodate you another time.
And just in case you are nervous, please rest assured that we will never give you the 'hard sell'. Buying a wedding dress should not be rushed and we know that you will want to look around at various shops before you make your decision. We genuinely love meeting brides to be and finding out about their weddings so you can relax knowing that you will get a warm welcome,
Can you make bespoke items?
We certainly can. We love working with women to help them create their dream dress. A bespoke item allows you to choose every last detail.
We tend to specialise in more laid back bridal wear. Do get in touch if you would like to discuss your requirements.
How long will I have to wait for my dress?
Most of our clothing is ready to wear therefore you can take it with you right away if you wish!
If you wish to purchase a Frock Goddess piece that in stock in your size we should be able to make one for you. This can take up to 2-4 weeks, but do let us know if you need it quickly and we'll see what we can do!
For bespoke items the time taken can vary depending on the garment and when you can be available for fittings. However, because everything is made locally on site we normally can turn these around within a few weeks if need be,
What should I bring for dress shopping?
We recommend that you wear neutral underwear. If you already have your wedding shoes bring them too. If not, bring a pair a similar height to those you'll wear.
Where are you based?
Our wedding shop is based in Broadstone Mill in Stockport, Greater Manchester. This is a convenient location for brides in Stockport, Manchester, Cheshire, and throughout the North West. We are so unique that many brides travel from further afield!
You can shop online if you can't visit us in person.
How are your items made?
We only sell bridal wear and gifts that have been made ethically. The vast majority of the items that we sell in our shop have been hand made in the UK, either on site or by a small team of seamstresses.
All of our Cocoa Couture dress have also been handmade in the UK.
Our gifts and accessories are all sourced from small, independent UK suppliers. Again the vast majority are hand made.
What is the price range of your wedding dresses?
The low key designs and small batch production of Frock Goddess clothing allows us to keep our bridal wear budget friendly despite the fact that it is handmade. Outfits start from as little as £150 and are no more than £500.
Our Cocoa Couture dresses are more intricate and range from £500 to £2,000
Do you make clothing for men?
I'm afraid not - that's a whole different specialism. We can put you in touch with someone who might be able to help. Or you can check out our Directory.
I have no idea what dress I want - does that matter?
Not at all! We suggest that you gather some pictures of things that you like the look of and bring those with you. We will be happy to help you find something similar. Whether or not you know what you are looking for we recommend that you try on a few different styles.
