Wedding Time is a beautiful Grade II Listed building situated in Dorchester’s High East Street and has been established since 1983.

For brides looking for a haven away from it all, where they can relax and browse in private surroundings, Wedding Time of Dorchester is the place to visit. With three private fitting rooms, including one for wheelchair access, there is plenty of space for you to bring your family and friends to try an amazing array of beautiful gowns. Leading designer wedding dresses include Stella York, Phil Collins Bridal Collection, Sacha James, Romantica of Devon and Olivia Grace along with accessories in abundance. Tracy, owner of Wedding Time, and her dedicated team are committed to offering the best possible service to their clients and take great care to satisfy every need.


Each client is given personal attention in our beautiful bridal salon and brides will be put at ease by the warmth and friendliness of the Wedding Time team. With many years experience since opening in 1983, we have established a first class reputation for exceptional service in the area and our enthusiasm for our work is second to none.


Wedding Time has over 100 wedding dresses available for clients to view, and staff will happily give advice on style and fit when appropriate. Because of the detailed nature of the work involved, and the number of fittings required in the run-up to the big day, clients are advised to start thinking about their choices at least seven months before the wedding. However, an occasional miracle can be performed when time is tight!


We keep a wide selection of styles including various sizes from size 8 – 24 in stock for our clients to try.  This ensures that each bride feels that she has tried a selection of styles available.


We have a fantastic range of top designers inlcluding: Stella York, Phil Collins Bridal Collection, Sacha James, Romantica of Devon, Olivia Grace, Blossom, Twighlight, Bianco Evento, Rainbow Club shoes and Richard Designs.


With our fitting experience, Tracy  and Deborah will help select those styles that flatter and suit both style and budget. Once a dress is chosen, there will be three separate fittings in the run-up to the wedding, to ensure the best possible fit on the day. Alterations are charged at a very reasonable rate for the individual work required on the chosen dress, and this will vary according to the amount of work necessary. Of course if the dress is a perfect fit, there will be no alteration charge! From the time of order, you will need to allow on average five months for delivery and two months for any alterations to be made.

The relationship that develops between Tracy and her team, and their brides, is testament alone to the labour of love put into each dress, and the personal care and attention given to each new bride to be. Thank you cards from customers  line the walls and lovely messages  and recommendations can be found on our Facebook page.

Tracy also offers a ‘Dressing on the Day’ service for her brides and ensures that they  are turned out to perfection; her emergency sewing kit is always on hand for any last minute emergencies!
