Last minute planning

Thankfully, it has been announced that the number permitted to attend a wedding reception has increased from eight to twenty- in Scotland. This is a step forward, however, it is a very small step. 

For those of you, and there are many, who still do not know whether your son or daughter's wedding is going to go ahead and have many worries to contend with, please do not worry about your outfit! We do not sell by order, all of our dresses are available to purchase immediately. Although working by appointment only, we can, normally, see customers as soon as is required. However, please note that Saturdays are busy and we are less likely to be able to accommodate last minute bookings, but, we will try!

Please phone 01292 264412 to book. (Current guidance on social gatherings applies- a maximum of two households per appointment).

Our Mother of Bride and Groom Collection 

Going to a wedding is not an every day event. Weddings and other special occasions demand a very special outfit and we will do our very best to help you find "the one".


However, it isn't all about the outfit. We understand that the prospect of buying and outfit, particularly a mother of bride or groom outfit, can be a frightening one. There is a great deal of pressure on mums and there shouldn't be. We promise that we will do our very best to make sure that the process of buying your outfit is an enjoyable one and not something to be endured!


 And, so to our collection!  We stock an extensive range of styles for all occasions including, of course, weddings . With regards to our collection, we are very much of the thinking that not all mums want to conform to the same look. What one customer might think of as a "mum of" outfit might not follow for the next.  Moreover, weddings are changing and that includes where they are being held- Scottish wedding locations. Therefore, the outfits that are being purchased are also changing.  We try to offer as wide a selection as possible and hope that whether looking for a classic mother of the bride dress, a flattering mother of the bride dress or maybe even an unusual mother of the bride dress that we will have something to suit! 

And, for those looking for something less formal, we have what we refer to as our "dressy but not too dressy" collection. A range of dresses for those looking for the perfect wear, wear and wear again dress. Chose from our Lizabella- we are the main stockist in Scotland of Lizabella- Carla Ruiz, Tia and Arggido collections. 


 Finally, to finish your look, we also stock a wide range of beautiful shoes, bags, hats and fascinators.

Please scroll through our galleries to see just some of our collection and for a little peek inside the world of L Occasionwear Ayr.

Having done so, we do hope that you will be encouraged to visit us very soon !


Owing to the pandemic, we do not expect summer 2021 deliveries to follow the normal pattern. Please see our blog post Mother of the Bride and Groom 2021 for further details.


Having found the perfect outfit, no-one wants to arrive at an event to find that someone else is wearing the same thing. With this in mind, we keep a note of every event that we have sold an outfit for and will never knowingly sell duplicates. Clearly, we have no control over what other retailers are selling, however, although we cannot guarantee exclusivity, we do our very best !
