Wedding Dress Shopping with a Difference

Mode Bridal is a quality led wedding dress retailer based in Hove where owner Jana Svalbe has opened a luxury bridal studio within her home. This gives brides a unique opportunity to take the stress out of wedding dress shopping by removing the need for overwhelming trips to busy bridal shops; and sharing their experience with other brides.


The boutique specialised in unique collections of wedding dresses and accessories that are handmade in the UK and Italy to bride’s measurements, giving brides highest quality products combined with totally personal service.

Jana said “Having led a busy work life in the city, I appreciate the importance of time and avoiding stress when it comes to those precious personal moments in our lives. I wanted to reflect that in my business model by making the bridal shopping experience truly personal and enjoyable, so brides can cherish the memory of buying their most important dress as fondly as the big day itself”

“Offering brides unique and stylish dresses that are made to the highest standard is also very important and that is why I have chosen to work with an award winning British designer Terry Fox and renown Italian designer Anna Tumas who works exclusively with us in the UK- both create their beautiful wedding dresses in house using best quality materials”.
