Oxfam Shop Southampton

We have a dedicated bridal suite within the Oxfam's Shirley Southampton shop, with good quality fashionable bridal wear and accessories, new and second-hand, usually with a choice of over 200 dresses. Our beautiful wedding dresses can be taken home on the day of purchase. We also have another suite, our Prom Room, with a range of evening dresses, bridesmaid dresses, groom outfits, veils and lots of other wedding accessories.  Selected bridal items are available to order online.

Trying your first wedding gown is by appointment only by booking HERE or you can also book appointments on our Facebook page on this link: https://www.facebook.com/OxfamBridalSouthampton/.  During your one hour, free appointment, our stylist volunteer will help you choose and try on dresses. Usually you have time to try 5-6 dresses, but if there's time you can try as many as you like. Please help us to maintain our dresses by avoiding wearing heavy make-up. We currently have appointments available on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10.00 am until 4.00 pm.  In addition we sometimes have appointments available on Friday afternoons, dependent upon volunteer availability.

If you are interested in visiting our Prom Room to look at evening wear, bridesmaid dresses, grooms wear and accessories, please telephone us on Wednesday and Saturdays between 10:30 and 3:00 at 023 773192 or message us on our Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/OxfamBridalSouthampton/ at any time.

In the main shop, we sell good quality clothes, books, homewares and Oxfam greeting cards.
