What a busy start to the year! The salon is still bustling with brides, bridesmaids, grooms and Summer wedding fever as the new gowns are flying off the rails and bride's gowns are arriving. The most exciting arrival, however, has to be our fabulous new Bradgate Brides Plus collection now ready for all you ladies with curves to try on and fall in love with. There's soft chiffons, luxurious organzas, little cap sleeves, delicate shrugs, lace embellishments, sparkle bodices, layered skirts... all available in a range of colours too. We got one of our brides, Stacey, to model some of them for us so we could post up a few "sneek peaks" to give you an idea of just how beautiful they really are as our excitement and words alone do not do them justice. We'll get many more photos up soon once we organise a proper shoot and if there's any previous brides (or brides-to-be) that are a size 20 to 28 wishing to get involved and model the new gowns for us, we'd love to hear from you! =)
Having only just recovered from all the unpacking and steaming of the new Maggie Sottero, Benjamin Roberts, Alfred Angelo, Anoushka G and Dessy Bridal gowns, on our trip to Harrogate Bridal Show on Monday we bought a whole lot more.. including a fabulous new designer Intuzuri. Think modern vintage with lashings of luxury; lace and slight sparkle diamante, soft pleated organzas, lightweight swish, delicate straps, chantilly lace.. beautiful clean lines and detail in every finish. We've chosen a selection of ball gown, a-line and fishtail dresses so there's something for everyone! We were so excited at the show (and the free glass of champagne certainly made our smiles bigger), we just can't wait to get these gowns in our salon and start trying them on our brides. Their signature gown (pictured in the background, right) was one of our favourites, I'm sure you can see why!
Another new collection we are adding to our salon is Blue by Enzoani. We are completely bowled over by their gorgeous fabrics, attention to detail and real designer look and feel; all at unbelievable prices. If you're looking for a modern cut and a bit of wow-factor, you'll be just as impressed by their gowns as we are. Keep an eye out for more details and pictures to be posted soon.
And last, but by no means least, many congratulations to our lovely bride, Katie! We hope you had a fantastic day and all think you looked stunning in your chosen gown. We love seeing photos of beaming brides and happy couples; knowing and hearing that we made a difference to your special day is so heart-warming and rewarding. Don't forget to stay in touch and now there's an option to post a review on how fabulous your gown is on our site!
Until next time.. let's hope the sun comes back soon (the office is freezing today) to gear us up ready for the summer!
