With another exciting year for Ellie Sanderson almost over, we’re already looking to 2022 and what the biggest bridal fashion trends will be. With the latest collections from our favourite bridal designers landing in our boutiques, now’s the time to book your appointment with us – if you haven’t already.

LOOKING AHEAD TO 2022

Right, we’re going to get serious with you for a moment. Brides – if you’re thinking about starting the search for your wedding dress, you must do it now. Already our books for 2022 are looking, in Ellie’s words, “nuts!” and things are only going to get crazier. With a huge number of brides who had to postpone their weddings until 2022, along with newly-engaged brides, our appointment slots and fitting slots are filling up incredibly quickly, and we really don’t want you to miss out.

Make finding your wedding dress the most important thing on your to do list

WHY THE RUSH?

We’re a small, independent business, using independent suppliers, and what makes us so special also means we’re limited as to how many brides we can work with each year. Here at Ellie Sanderson we don’t go in for mass-manufactured bridal gowns. It’s just not what we do and not what we’re about. We work with the best bridal designers in the world to bring you the most exquisite gowns, showcasing the finest skills, so you look and feel amazing on your big day. That is something we won’t compromise on.

We also pride ourselves on providing a truly bespoke and personal service – being able to work closely with our brides is a real joy. We want to get to know you, to help you find your dream dress, but with only so many team members, fitters and seamstresses we trust to give you the service and results you deserve, we need you to book in before we can’t fit you in!

GOT IT – I’M BOOKING TODAY!

Excellent! Honestly, we don’t want to panic you or stress you out – but we need our brides to know that 2022 is not like any normal year and we don’t want you left disappointed. Right, where were we?
