A trip to Brighton Laines for Modern Meets Bohemian Wedding Dresses at White Leaf Boutique

There’s nothing quite like turning the stress of wedding dress shopping into a wholesome day out with your bridesmaids and for that a trip to new surroundings is key. We suggest somewhere a train ride away, with cobbled streets, artisanal coffee and cake shops, cute vintage stores, independent makers and (you guessed it) the seaside…

Enter White Leaf Boutique of Brighton Laines, where modern meets bohemian in a fresh and friendly wedding dress shopping experience for the free-spirited and fashion-forward bride.

Their collection of wedding dresses is inspired by the latest trends and bohemian style, offering a unique blend of classic and modern designs. From flowy silhouettes to daring cuts, the gowns are perfect for the bride who wants to make a statement on her special day.

They offer a personal service in their beautifully ordained shop, where you and your bridesmaids can explore the many stunning options they have on offer.

We visited on a sunny Saturday afternoon (followed by an alfresco lunch at the famous Donatello restaurant in the South Laines).

Here are some of our favourites…
