Bicester Village offers brides the chance to give back

19 Jan 2017

Bicester Village has joined forces with the innovative social enterprise, Brides Do Good, to offer brides and brides-to-be a charitable opportunity

Bicester Village in Oxford has announced the launch of Brides Do Good's first ever bricks and mortar boutique, which will run from February 9-19.

With an aim to eradicate child marriage worldwide through charity partners Plan International and Too Young to Wed, Brides Do Good is a social enterprise that sells luxury pre-loved and sample designer wedding gowns to fund its work.

Founder of Brides Do Good, Chantal Khoueiry, says: “Ending child marriage is more than protecting the innocent. It’s about promoting girls’ rights and providing opportunities for them to reach their full potential.”

Bringing the e-atelier to life, the boutique will stock a selection of dresses by an eclectic mix of designers including Valentino, Vera Wang and Alexander McQueen, allowing brides-to-be the chance to purchase the dress of their dreams while helping a worthy cause. Brides are also invited to bring their wedding dress during the shop's run; while two-thirds of proceeds from each sale will go to the charity, the donator will receive one-third of the price in return.

To further celebrate the launch, Bicester Village outlets will be hosting a range of offers to entice couples to visit. These include:

  • 20 newly arrived bridal dress styles at Oscar de la Renta
  • A free shirt for grooms and their party when they purchase a suit at Paul Smith
  • Anya Hindmarch will be showcasing some of the key pieces from her ‘I love you’ range as well as her ‘Hell yes’ collection
  • Sergio Rossi is offering a further 30% off the Village price
  • Samsonite will be offering three for the price of two on selected luggage pieces
