They say the best businesses are born out of a simple solution to a problem, and we think Nabbd is just that.
The concept stemmed from founder Polly Thompson’s own buying experience while organizing her wedding. She felt well catered for as the bride, but there was little choice for her bridesmaids, so she ended up having to compromise with some dresses that “would do” and a colour she hadn’t intended to go for due to the limited range.
Nabbd is the first UK bridal shop of its kind, solely stocking bridesmaid and flower girl dresses. Another distinctive element of Nabbd is the product range, Polly carefully selects dresses from a selection of UK and US designers and sells them at affordable prices, all made-to-measure, and in a huge array of colours.
