Wow, the exceptional and the exquisite Designer wedding show and it was just that.

All discerning brides and bridal shop owners must visit this incredible show. Luckily I am both, so my mission was not only to chat with my designers but to have a good old look around. Top of my personal list today was to find some amazing wedding invitations. I desperatley want them to be hand made, silk covered card, gorgeous organza ribbon with a vintage brooch that pulls open to reveal the invite, oh and I want them to come in a matching box . Guess what I found them…….. I have been looking for these for almost 3 months and had decided to make them my self but I am a little short on play time for such items. So I was thrilled to find Sugalily and Amy there will make anything you want, a dream come true. So I am now eagerly waiting for my sample invite.

I also dropped in on Sassi Holford and Stephanie Allin to just stand and gloat over their gorgeous gowns and see if there were any new ones I just had to have for the boutique. Both Sassi Holford and Stephanie Allin had stunning gowns on the catwalk. Sassi had an incredible coat that drew gasps of enthusiasm when it came on to the catwalk and Stephanie had designed a funky little short dress with matching wedding handbag complete with posh pouch.

Watching the show I realised that Designer bridal fashion is so much more in line with contemporary fashion these days. The key looks this season are amazing, from big full skirts made with Italian Damask like Roseanna by Sassi Holford, to slinky fitted fishtail gowns like Anoushka by Stephanie Allin . The choice of fabrics is also fabulous, gorgeous soft silk or crinkle chiffon with seed pearls its so so hard to choose. Sexy, slinky and sophisticated or amazing , full and attention grabbing big skirts…….. these two designers have it all and I have them pride of place in my boutique.

Finally a few words on accessories, vintage pieces of jewellery, large organza flowers in your hair, pewter jewellery encrusted with diamante or swarovski crystals and topped off soft soft silk veils. Just totally stunning.

Anyway back to earth, do not miss this show and when you are all full of excitement give us a call and we can book you in for some time to try the collections from these amazing designers .
