Come to Harrogate Bridal Week with us!

Quite possibly one of our favourite events of the year! We just love this day out every single time it comes around, and if you have ever wondered how & where we choose our new season stock – this is where!

It’s a ritual now that we start our day at the Ivy with a latte & a selection of pastries  – can you blame us?
Our first stop this time was Stella York. We’d seen a sneaky preview online of what this new collection was bringing but it really never fails to surprise us how much better dresses look in real life vs any amount of photos/videos. The new collection is STUNNING & if we could have bought them all we would have!
We are bursting to show you our picks, and as soon as they arrive – we will! But until then, we can tell you there are some GORGEOUS new sleeves, PEARLS (because lord knows the nation is loving a pearl right now!) some stunning new florals & even a touch of Kate Middleton – need I say any more?

Onto Morilee, who always put on a fashion show of the new styles served with a side of fizz & wine gums. One word for you on the new Morilee collection – MINI’s! If you’re that bride who’s into her Instagram & Pinterest etc, you’ll know exactly what we are talking about when we say bridal minis. We are so excited to launch something completely new in shop & also cannot wait to see how you wear them. Whether it be for your evening dress, your engagement party dress, your hen or even your main wedding dress – these dresses are so much fun & allow for some killer shoes.

We also of course had to swing by Richard Designs to look at all their new veils & accessories, think 3D flowers, more pearls, bows, the list goes on. Their stand is always full of beautiful things. Then finally, one for the bridesmaids, a visit to Dessy to see their new collection. Some gorgeous new styles, colours & a few new fabrics too!

The new collections will be landing in the shop from October through to early January. As soon as we can show you the new styles we absolutely will!

One last little bit of gossip for you from Harrogate, lots of you know I (Molly) am also engaged & very much on the look out for my own dress – you’d think this would be easy given the amount of dresses I’ve had on over the years. Well, I had a favourite in my head before going to Harrogate yesterday but wanted to hold out & see the new collections before making my final choice. WELL… we saw the one, absolutely, undoubtedly THE ONE! If you know us then you’ll know we are criers – but when I tell you we cried, we literally stood staring at the dress on a mannequin – not even on me … and cried and then laughed! That’s enough about my wedding though, for now…
