Morgan Davies celebrate their silver anniversary

Brides urged to donate wedding dresses for 25th anniversary celebrations 

Thousands of blushing brides from the past 25 years have been invited to take a trip down memory lane and put their wedding dresses on display as part of a bridal boutique’s anniversary celebrations. 

Hitchin-based Morgan Davies Bridal, formerly known as The Bridal Room, is celebrating its own ‘silver’ anniversary and has urged customers who have purchased a dress between 1990 and 2005 to get in touch. 

The boutique is keen to share the occasion with as many customers as possible, and staff believe they have helped more than 10,000 brides since setting up shop in 1990. 

The gowns will be displayed in the windows of the Sun Street boutique and Morgan Davies will clean and press the gowns as well as returning them in a bespoke bridal box. 

Sam Weston, Director of Morgan Davies Bridal, said: “I can’t wait to see all the brides, and gowns, from when we first opened the shop. We have helped literally thousands of brides since we opened and every single one is special. 

“Your wedding day is arguably the biggest day of your life and we are so privileged to play such a major part in it. We have met some wonderful brides over the years and we’d love to welcome them back and help celebrate our very own anniversary.” 

The anniversary celebrations will take place on Thursday, May 28 by private invitation. Customers wishing to feature their dresses in the display have been urged to call to request an invite. 

Mrs Weston added: “It’s incredible how much the wedding industry has changed over the past 25 years. Brides have become more and more adventurous in their gowns and the big day has just got bigger and bigger. 

“It will be wonderful to see the evolution of gowns from the first day we opened right up to the present day. Fashions always come and go but with wedding dresses the changing styles are even more spectacular.” 

Hitchin girl Alexa Taylor, who is hoping to represent Great Britain at the forthcoming Miss Universe, will also be attending the event.
