We spent three days exploring the UK’s biggest bridal show at Harrogate and we’re thrilled to announce that we won the Retailer Customer Service of the Year at the Bridal Buyer Awards. It is fair to say that we have an innate understanding of what makes a happy customer. Our Co-owners Maureen Ryder and Alison Mitchell go above and beyond to guarantee great customer service – from hosting trunk shows, sample sales, collection previews and providing dressmaking service to the brides.

Talking of new trends, we had the chance to watch two catwalks during our three days. Our favourite bridal designers such as Ladybird bridal and Diane Legrand have nailed the plunging wedding dress style for 2019. Most with illusion necklines, these embroidered and embellished styles are perfect for brides wanting to show some skin. Elegant deep v-necklines are offset with long sleeves and gorgeous 3D detailing.

There were a lot of very exciting wedding dress trends for brides-to-be. From sleeves of every shape and size to a romantic twist on classic styles with sheer and sparkle reigning supreme, the fall wedding dress collections provided a seriously feminine and romantic look for autumn/ winter brides.

Lastly, we have also seen a lot of glittering embellishment on the catwalks at the Harrogate Bridal Show to add a touch of magic to their already stunning collections.

We have a scrumptious variety of gowns to choose from the very best in the world of bridal industry and also from the Leading British bridal designers. We understand that we all have different body types, which is why it is so important to have different gown silhouettes and styles in our shop.

Our vast selection of different styles  including fit and flare, A-Line, ball gown, sheath, mermaid, tea length , vintage glamour, classic chic, full on fairy-tale, 50s retro look or bohemian chic and more. And all of them are designed to complement brides’ every lovely curve. We also have a great selection of sizes in our store, our sample sizes range from size 6 to size 30.

Autumn / fall weather can be a bit chilly, you might feel the need to have a light jacket over your wedding dress when you are outside.  If you’re wedding dress is made of a lightweight material (which is very common among autumn weddings), a lace jacket would be the perfect combination. We have lace boleros and shawls will to complement your wedding dress. It will add the autumn look to it.
