A TRUE BRIDAL EXPERIENCE
Introducing Renew Bridal; sister company to Kent Boutique Story of My Dress, offering a range of ex-sample and pre-loved wedding dresses/separates, all priced under £1600.
We believe that the Renew bride wants a modern, one of a kind wedding dress and they’re passionate about sustainability and being eco-friendly. They are either spontaneous brides arranging fast track weddings and need a dress sooner than made to order or they have a budget they are very keen to stick to.
We understand that made to measure wedding dresses are not for everyone so we wanted to create a sister brand that offers an alternative. It also sees beautiful samples lovingly made being re-loved and worn when ordinarily they would be put in storage. We are doing our best to source a range of styles and sizes from many different designers and reduce the amount of waste in this industry.
Renew Bridal is located directly opposite its uber-cool sister company
'Story of My Dress' and for those of you not wanting a made-to-measure dress, have a budget or are time conscious then you are at the right place!

WHAT DOES EX-SAMPLE WEDDING DRESSES MEAN?
Ex-sample wedding dresses have purely been used as display dresses or in photoshoots / styled shoots. Or, in our case, also made from surplus materials. All the dresses available at Renew Bridal are in great condition.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM THE RENEW RAIL?
Like with Story of My Dress, we have modern, current styles hanging on our rails. Carefully curated from our own collection and amazing designers of non-traditional wedding dresses. We are always on the hunt for more and more inclusive sizing. Watch this space.
PRICE RANGE OF EX-SAMPLE WEDDING DRESSES?
Ex-sample prices range from £150-£1600
HOW LONG WILL I WAIT FOR MY WEDDING DRESS?
Ex-sample wedding dresses /separates are bought off the rail and taken the same day. Full payment is taken. Please read our Terms and Conditions of Sale.
WHAT HAPPENS IN YOUR RENEW BRIDAL APPOINTMENT?
We welcome you into the store and have a little chat to find out about your wedding & you! We then invite you into the bridal room to look through the rail with your guests, we leave you to pull out as many of the wedding dresses or bridal separates that catch your eye.
Cara, Sammy or Ashleigh our bridal stylists will then help you change in and out of the dresses, usually around an hour of trying depending how long it takes you to find the one you love! It’s super relaxed & friendly, we enjoy these appointments as much as you do!
We ask you bring a max 4 guests (5 including bride) and as much as we love little ones we ask they are taken care of at home if possible. Our bridal room is bijou & can’t accommodate a pram. Please do ask us if this causes problems and we will do our best to accommodate.
DO YOU OFFER ALTERATIONS?
Alterations, resizing and redesigns are available in our studio from £150. Your dress journey stays with the Story of my dress/Renew brand.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO RESIZE/REDESIGN?
When you buy your wedding dress, it very rarely fits perfectly and may need some alternations. That could be that the dress is too big and we need to reduce the size for you or it may need some fabric added to enable the dress to fit. We can generally upsize by one size using fabric from within the dress. You may choose to change the sleeve, lower the back, shorten the dress, add a split etc. This can all be done within the alterations appointment.
WHEN SHOULD I VISIT?
Due to our Renew service being off the rack, your dress can be taken away on the same day! If you have less than 6 months to your wedding then Renew is the place for you. However, if you have more than 6 months and looking for made to measure then our sister company 'Story of My Dress' would be the perfect option.
