What’s your dream wedding dress? Fishtail… strapless… vintage… jewel-encrusted… satin… lace… white… red… These days, there’s no ‘normal’ when it comes to getting married, and that goes for the dress too.

On Saturday (9 July) we launched a bridal wear collection in our Kettering charity shop. From a stunning selection of hats and accessories to rails bursting with over 80 brand new and preloved dresses – our shop at 40 Gold Street is now ready and waiting for couples about to tie the knot.

The team of wedding-wear volunteers had prepared a huge batch of the prettiest little homemade cupcakes (because what’s a wedding without cake?) to celebrate the official launch of the collection, and had fun donning the very best of the dresses to model for passers-by.


The collection of donated dresses at Kettering includes both preloved and new, for brides and for bridesmaids. Each one is unique and stunning, and each one sold will help the shop play its role in raising money for The Salvation Army, which supports the most vulnerable people in communities.


To see the bridal wear collection or for more information, visit the Salvation Army shop at 40 Gold Street, Kettering, NN16 8JB or call the team on 01536 523289.
