News and Blog

Are you a blushing bride-to-be? Or do you know someone getting married? Then head to St Catherine’s Hospice Bishopric shop to browse beautiful dresses at bargain prices in an extensive bridal section.

The local hospice, which cares for terminally ill people across Horsham and Sussex and Surrey, is inviting brides-to-be to visit its flagship bridal shop, to view a range of dresses, in different styles, sizes and colours, including some brand new with tags. A range of mother of the bride outfits, bridesmaids dresses for all ages, and accessories including veils, shoes, hats and tiaras are also available.

Elegantly decorated, with full length mirrors, special changing facilities, chandeliers, and a sofa for friends and family, the shop’s bridal section is designed to allow you to look for your dream dress in relaxed surroundings.

Teresa Harris, who manages the St Catherine’s bridal department said: “There’s some beautiful dresses on offer, ranging from vintage 1950’s dresses through to more modern styles. We have four to five pre-loved dresses donated each month so our stock is always changing, but at the moment, we have dresses in white, cream, and with red detailing. Our dresses start from around £75 and go up to about £300, and the stories behind our dresses are lovely too. Recently, a man whose wife was cared for by our hospice donated her dress for someone else to enjoy, and many people who generously donate dresses or outfits are pleased to know that something so special to them will help someone else have a special day too. My team and I look forward to welcoming brides-to-be and their family and friends to our department and sharing in the excitement of that all important dress shopping!”

The bridal department at St Catherine’s Hospice shop at 6 The Bishopric, Horsham, RH12 1QR is open for browsing between 9.30am and 5pm Monday to Saturday. To find out more, or for more information about or outfit, please call the shop on 01403 211829.
