The most beautiful showrooms in Belgium and the Netherlands for finding a modern wedding dress

Looking for the perfect wedding dress but not quite sure where to start?

Then we are happy to help you with a selection of the trendiest bridal boutiques where it is definitely worth making an appointment. Finding the right dress can (and we speak from experience) be quite overwhelming, especially when you know that most boutiques require you to order at least six months before your wedding. And what the hell is a trunk show again? If you are a fan of a specific designer or brand, a trunk show will give you the chance to try on and view the entire collection, not just the selection of dresses that the boutique of this brand has purchased. Best news? Usually you also get a discount during these days!

We would like to list our personal experience with the curated collections, service and the corresponding price tag of our favorite bridal shops here:


Melody Nelson - Namur

After a short road trip and a look at Namur, we arrive at the apartment and also the bridal showroom of Melody Nelson with parking in front of the door. In this slightly hidden gem you will find noteworthy brands such as Rue De Seine, Bon Bridé, A la Robe, Made With Love, Lovers Society and the gems of Annika Maria for the bride who wants something a little different. Melody Nelson has been earning her stripes for several years as a forerunner in modern and accessible brideswear and exudes elegance. At a leisurely pace and with an honest approach you can try on all your favorite dresses and choose matching accessories. Would you like photos or videos and would you like to think about your dream dress? Which can! A must in the wedding dress landscape.

Something Something - Zurenborg
Something Something may be a bit different from the average bridal boutique, but we thought this gem was worth mentioning. You can visit their showroom in Zurenborg by appointment to try on their collection of pre-loved wedding dresses. Preloved, because these dresses have a previous owner and are either vintage, stuck in the closet forever, or only worn for a single day. Shame right? Thanks to this bridal shop you can breathe new life into a beautiful item and score points for your wallet and the environment. Because what could be more fun than scoring a designer wedding dress with an affordable price tag? Go Pauline!
Dresses can be found with a price tag between € 100 and € 2000.
