The place to be for the full bridal shopping experience with top quality service, care and expert advice right up to your big day.

Welcome to our website and congratulations on your engagement. Our website is a little different to most bridal sites; we feel you should get a true feeling for who we are and what we do. We suppose you could say our website is a window into the soul of our business.

Especially For You is situated in the heart of Longridge, a bustling market town just 7 miles outside of Preston in Lancashire. Established in 2001 we are a family run business and have managed to build up a heart-warming reputation for outstanding customer care and attention to detail. We go to great lengths to ensure our brides look and feel fantastic on their special day. We pride ourselves on offering a friendly, professional and full service which guarantees our brides enjoy their appointments and fittings.

We stock an array of stunning bridal gowns and bridesmaids dresses for any kind of wedding whether it is home or abroad, a Civil service or religious wedding. The brides and bridesmaids’ pages will take you through our available collections from each unique designer and we are continually updating our collections.

You may have already found your bridal attire and are searching for that perfect finishing touch, tiara, veil, jewellery or wedding shoes. Take a look to our Stationery & Accessories page to view our collections.

Our creative team design and make bespoke wedding stationery to match your chosen colour or theme. This includes wedding invitations, seating plans, place cards and table numbers; Take a look at our Wedding Stationery page with pictures of a selection of designs.

When booking appointments you will always receive personal one to one service and for your first time looking at bridal gowns we allow you 1 & half hours to ensure you never feel rushed. Our staff are highly trained and very friendly, offering professional guidance every step of the way. Please tell us if you are a local bride we will gladly close our blinds to keep your secret away from gossip. Our staff are dedicated in maintaining confidentiality no matter who you are or where you are coming from; we are tighter than a doctor’s surgery for privacy.

Our alterations service is completely in house, ensuring your bridal gown is never away from the shop and always safe. We don’t charge a package price which means if your dress just needs the bodice altering then that is all you pay for! Anything can be customised to suit exactly what you want.

Being a family run business, we find that our customers come from far & wide, Blackburn, Blackpool, Bolton, Burnley, Chorley, Clitheroe, Garstang, Great Harwood, Kirkham, Lancaster, Manchester, Poulton-le-Fylde and even Wigan. They travel because our reputation has spread far and wide as offering the bride a very personal service where she knows her dreams are in professional and caring hands from planning through to anniversaries not just her big day.

We hope to see you soon and we hope you relax and enjoy planning one of the most exciting days of your life.

Carole & team
