Having been proud members of the Retail Bridalwear Association (RBA) for 15 years, we’re delighted to able to continue to offer our brides peace of mind when purchasing their wedding dress from our boutiques. Not only does being a member of the RBA go to validate what we’re doing at Morgan Davies Bridal, it also allows our customers to know they firmly place their trust in both usand the designers we stock.
The RBA is an organisation made up of retailers from throughout the UK, all of whom have had to meet a series of strict entry requirements with only 40% of businesses that apply going on to be accepted.
The aim of the association is to provide customers with a selection of retailers that meet the highest standards of stock, décor and service, allowing brides and grooms to shop with confidence; kno
wing what they are buying is of the highest quality and under a guarantee.
One of the most important aspects of the RBA is how they provide financial security on all items purchased at one of their registered retailers. When it comes to your special day, taking away any undue risk by shopping at a boutique bearing the RBA logo gives you peace of mind.
Here are some of the requirements retailers have to satisfy in order to earn RBA status.

- A business trading from a bricks & mortar shop
- Paying business rates
- Annual credit checks carried out on all RBA members
