Looking for recommendation of shops in/around Bern for festive clothing

EE and her Pirate are tying the knot, if everything goes to plan it'll happen later this year an'all.


I am looking for recommendations of reasonable priced shops (NOT BRIDAL wear and gear!!) in and around Bern, that sells festive clothing suitable for a registry office wedding.

Did you have a pleasant experience personally in such a shop and would recommend it to me?

Did you hear through the (family) grapevine of such shops?

Grateful for any and all info on this matter that I can get.

I am totally out of the loop of what's on offer (due to long absence from Bern) in regards to such things and I don't want to go trudging through countless shops, because I don't have the time to.

Thanks bunches and heaps in advance for any hints and tips of where to go

Re: Looking for recommendation of shops in/around Bern for festive clothing

Congratulations! I thought you were looking for Christmas jumpers when I read the thread title.

Gerry Weber has some nice things but it might be a bit pricey, I usually buy stuff in the sales. It’s on the right hand side of the main street where Globus is (after Globus), can’t remember the street name off the top of my head.

Re: Looking for recommendation of shops in/around Bern for festive clothing

Are you looking for what people call “bohemian” or “boho”?

I can’t remember the name, but there used to be a really nice, reasonably priced boutique on the main drag, near the movie theatre (past the clock) . So not very specific, sorry.

I do recall several funky shops in that vicinity.

Congratulations!

Am looking for anything but a Deux-Pieces (making me look like Miss Moneypenny), nor a classical bridal gown incl. kitchen curtain mustn't necessarly be floor-lenght but should be a tad flattering for a lady of traditional build ........

Phase 8 has some nice flattering dresses. They have stand alone stores and concessions in stores such as Manor, Globus and Loeb.
I don’t know where they are in Bern so you’d need to google that but there is a nice one in Manor in Bienne.
