What a fantastic bridal shop. Visited this afternoon with my daughter. The shop felt intimate and very welcoming and the range and quality of dresses that we were shown were way above anything else we had looked at with a price tag within our budget. We settled on a beautiful dress that we were able to take home with a dressmaker recommended to do the minor alterations needed. Don't look anywhere else if you need a wedding dress - great personal service , the owner is lovely.


I've bought my dream wedding dress at Browns in Totnes. Amazing service and great friendly atmosphere. Would highly recommend this place to a bride-to-be looking for a stunning wedding dress at a reasonable price!


Amazing wedding dress shop!! I would highly recommend. On my first visit to the shop i got it down to 2 dresses i really liked but didnt think they were quite the one. Sam then took on board all the things i had mentioned throughout my visit including my budget & invited me back again a few weeks later when she had some more dresses. She had pulled out some that she thought i might like & the first one i tried on was beautiful (& only needs minor adjustments by a seamstress she recommends)! This is the dress i will be wearing on my big day - can not wait!! The shop is simple & beautiful, we were welcomed by Sam who took our coats & got us a drink (from fizz to a cup of tea), the wide range of dresses are stunning, Sam is not at all pushy & genuinely seems to just want you to get your dream dress! What more can you ask for!! Thank you so much for making my wedding dress shopping such a lovely experience & finding me the perfect dress.
