About This Report


The Bridal Stores industry is just a small part of the multibillion-pound UK wedding business. Operators in the industry provide wedding gowns and bridal accessories, as well as clothing and accessories for the bridal party. They traditionally benefit from a bride's desire to look good on her wedding day, which often prompts high spending. However, there has been a long-term decline in the UK marriage rate as society's attitudes to matrimony have changed and consumer spending was low in the early part of the five-year period as a result of the economic downturn. The average spend on a wedding decreased and expenditure on bridal wear shrank, leaving operators to face revenue declines.

Stores in this industry specialise in selling wedding dresses and clothes for members of the bridal party, including jewellery and accessories. Some stores also provide fitting and alteration services. The industry excludes the bridal sections of department stores and online retailers that sell similar items.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
