A charity shop is one of the first in the UK to exclusively sell wedding and prom dresses as lockdown restrictions are eased.

The pandemic hit the wedding industry hard over the past year as thousands of ceremonies were canceled and couples were forced to wait for their special day.

It is to be hoped that large gatherings such as weddings and parties will again be allowed without restrictions until June 21st.

But amid speculation that the final stage of Boris Johnson’s roadmap out of lockdown could be delayed, newlyweds are wondering whether to buy their perfect dress or save money.

The store says they want to “become the go-to place for popular wedding and ball gowns.”

They will sell a full range of wedding, bridesmaid and ball gowns, suits, mother of the bride ensembles, hats and shoes in a variety of sizes.

Farleigh Hospice has stores across central Essex including Chelmsford, Maldon, Witham and Braintree.

All proceeds from the business go directly to helping Farleigh Hospice to continue to provide and support to those affected by life-limiting illness or bereavement in the community.

Denise Wild, Farleigh Hospice Retail Area Manager, said, “Our 2019 pop-up shop on Moulsham Street Bridal was such a huge success that we thought why not open a shop dedicated to bridal and prom fashion!

“Our Dunmow shop was the ideal place as it’s a beautiful shop and the perfect setting to display our selection of beautiful clothes and suits. Due to the pandemic, we have a large amount of wedding and ball gowns in stock, it makes sense to have everything available in one place “.

The store on High Street, Dunmow, will be open Wednesday through Saturday from 10am to 4pm for people to try on its selection of bridal and prom clothing.

Appointments can be made by calling 01245 860101.

All Farleigh stores are Covid-19 safe and have appropriate security measures in place.

Accordingly, they only accept donations by agreement.
