About us

Since opening in 2005, Lara B has gained a reputation in East Anglia for being very professional, friendly and honest with brides. Lara and her staff give expert advice and help to make the experience pleasurable, personal and stress-free.

Lara has a degree in fashion design and has worked within the industry for over 20 years. Lara and her trained staff also offer something unique and special, as all our designer ranges allow dresses to be altered or mixed and matched.

We operate an appointment-only basis with one bride for each appointment. This enables us to give 100% of our expertise and knowledge to each individual bride.

Appointments last for 1½ hours, which gives every bride time to try on a range of dresses. We advise brides to bring a friend or relative to give valued opinions and enjoy the process, although we recommend no more than two guests.

Our collection of gowns are from some of the best respected designers from around the world, offering brides quality, couture fit and service. Our prices start from £1,400 up to approximately £2,200.

Most of our dresses take about 12-16 weeks to order and we like to allow 8-10 weeks for fittings, so start looking early to avoid disappointment. Rush orders are sometimes available at an extra cost! We recommend a comfortable order time of 6-8 months as a minimum (although there is never a guarantee in busy periods).

We take all the pressure off the alteration process by taking full responsibility from order to the collection of your dress for the big day. All alterations are taken care of by Lara who is a qualified dress fitter and then adjusted by Sue our seamstress, who can work wonders for some brides who change dress size.

We look forward to seeing you in store very soon.
