If you are a Mother of the B ride/Groom or just after something for a special occasion, we hold a varied selection of stock for you to browse though.  Also stocking a beautiful selection of hats and fascinators by Vivien Sherrif or GBT who can colour match your outfit to you hat. And then there are the shoes and bags!  View the entire collection in store. Unfortunately our Designers do not supply us with images of every item we stock, so there is more than appears on our website. Please also bear in mind that we rarely can re-order an outfit, so once it has gone! we cannot repeat on it. Our stock is ordered at least 6 months prior to it appearing on the shop floor, at which point we are then ordering our next seasons collections!

Karen Forte has been a family run business serving Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire & Bedfordshire since 1999. Our expert knowledge in the bridal industry helps us find the perfect dress for you and your bridesmaids. We offer an in-house seamstress service to make sure your ‘perfect dress’ has that ‘perfect fit’.  There is no point spending all that money on an outfit if it does not fit perfectly.

There is a large car park to the rear of the shop which is available to all customers. If it is full we have a reciprocal arrangement with Yuva Restaurant opposite.  Our address is 36 Old North Road, Bassingbourn, Cambridgeshire, SG8 5JL. We are actually in Cambridgeshire but have a Hertfordshire postal address.
