Beautiful Brides Liverpool is a chic boutique for curvy brides nationwide to explore and experiment with styles for their big day. We offer a unique wedding dress shopping experience and an exclusive customisation service for sizes 16 plus.
I founded the business after seeing many women struggling into standard sizes and feeling out of place when shopping for a dress for their big day. My bridal shop, the first of its kind in Liverpool, is all about the ‘body positive’ vibe.
My experience as an overseas buyer helps me to stay on top of what’s trending and my background as a designer means I understand how the pattern of a dress will flatter beautiful curves. I’ve sourced everything you can imagine to give my curvy brides choice and access to high fashion, edgy dresses.
Owner of Beautiful Brides Liverpool and Curvy Campaigner, Marisa Rooney
"Marisa Rooney is a smart designer. She understands how important is for women to feel their unique shape is beautiful and this is never more important than on their wedding day. The market is crying out for well designed bridalwear in a broader range of sizes. Marissa was an innovator on her fashion course calling for fuller sized mannequins to hone her dress making skills. As a result Marissa understands how to dress life-sized bodies (a term she coined whilst still a fashion student) and is at the forefront of a new generation of designers who put the practical needs of their customers at the forefront of their business.
I’m thrilled to see this design business flourish and with Marissa’s innovative collaborations and natural empathy for her clients, I know her work will be very well received."
