the wedding vine - wedding directory and online shop
We opened High Society in Cowbridge in May 2002 when we realised that there was a real demand for a very special bridal boutique in Wales featuring the very best in designer bridal gowns.
Our vision was for a small but beautiful boutique, where we could offer a truly personal service, and offer only the very best in designer wedding gowns. We named the shop High Society after the film starring Grace Kelly because she is a style icon who epitomises everything about our boutique. We believe very much that your wedding gown should above all be stylish, because the pictures will be with you forever! Grace Kelly is living proof that style can be timeless.
Over the years we have developed some firm favourites among the designers that we deal with, and have chosen dresses by the very best British designers namely Suzanne Neville, Alan Hannah, Sassi Holford, Jenny Packham and our premier Welsh designer Stephanie Allin. We have recently added our first American designer Claire Pettibone, who offers gorgeous vintage-inspired gowns unlike anything else in the UK. We love their fabulous designs, and have grown to understand the level of skill and professionalism that goes into every beautiful gown that they produce. We believe in offering a complete service to our brides and have a wide range of shoes, jewellery, tiaras, headpieces, veils and litle extras for you to try with your gown.
We hope that what really sets High Society apart is the fantastic service that we offer. We believe that choosing your wedding gown should be a dream experience, and love offering a personal service to each bride.
