Since 2009…We have been providing a friendly relaxed environment where Brides, Maids, Flower Girls and Prom Girls can have fun whilst choosing the dress of their dreams.

A Day To Remember is a family run business based in Chester on City Road, just five minutes walk from Chester Railway Station. During the wedding preparations for the first of our 6 daughters we found that there was a gap in the market for a friendly store that catered for all budgets. With this in mind we set about sourcing suppliers and finding premises and here we are with Bridal Gowns from £200 – £2500 from fabulous designers.



Catherine has been here since her 18th birthday, the day we opened. She works part time at the moment so she can take care of her small son. If you come in and see a gown that makes you say “wow that’s unusual” then Catherine has probably chosen it to stock! Proms are also a favourite with Catherine and she has equal responsibility for choosing these collections.


Laura works 4 days a week and is a lifelong family friend. She has a good eye for which designs flatter which figures, also great at picking out sample dresses that brides have not thought about trying.


Melissa is Catherine’s older sister and has been working full time with us for the past 3 years. Melissa also has responsibility for choosing our collections across all ranges and is also the member of staff who keeps on top of our suppliers and deliveries, ensuring everything is running smoothly and as expected. Melissa’s brides usually fall in love with a design they least expect as she has taken it in and said, “go on just try it”.


Sharon is also a lifelong family friend and up to now has worked on Saturdays.


Lyn is Catherine and Melissa’s mum and owns the store. Working part time at the shop and part time at their other business. Loves choosing the new collections and the time spent with customers.

None of the staff are paid commission, which enables all of us, staff and customers alike, to relax and enjoy the time spent trying on as many or as few dresses as required with absolutely no pressure. Above all we want our customers to feel comfortable and relaxed and have a great experience with us. So come along to our Chester shop, relax and allow us to help make your special day A Day To Remember.

Ordering times

Our Bridal and Bridesmaid collections take from 12-30 weeks to order in depending on the designer. Some of our designers hold stock and most offer rush delivery but there is an extra cost for this service from the designers. Eternity Bride and Art Couture both hold some stock which can be checked over the phone from Monday to Friday.

Payment Scheme

We offer a payment scheme for Bridal and Bridesmaids. You may leave a 20% deposit; we will then check this dress every month to ensure it is not to be discontinued. You may then pay as much or as little as you wish until the 50% deposit has been paid, at which time we will invite you in to be measured and order your dress. We are happy to accept instalments up until the dress comes in, when the balance will be due.
