Seasonal Themes- "Delight"

Its the last week of our seasonal themes!

This weeks theme fits in nicely with the fun in the sun that were all experiencing with this beautiful weather! Delight is a mix of bright colours and playful cuts, to make a quirky, bold look, perfect for a late Summer/ Autumn wedding!

Bright blue, cobalt blue, green, and pink create a warm Summer feel which we have seen in previous palette ideas, but adding opposites into the equation with the oranges and reds, definitely makes the colours pop and makes this a great alternative for an Autumnal wedding too!

 

Tea length dresses are playful and fun, and we love this bold silhouette with the bright colours in this theme!

Tea length dresses are obviously a great way to show off some fabulous bridal shoes! But make sure they are comfortable, as you're going to be spending most of your day in them!

Did you know we stock Rainbow shoes, which if ordered in Ivory/White with us, can be dyed for FREE in a small selection of colours, so they can be re used over and over again, after the big day?! (Plus they are padded inside, and really comfy!)

For more inspiration please visit our Pinterest board, which is constantly  being updated with new ideas !

Lots of love, Team CB xx

 

 

Seasonal Themes- "Vogue"

This week, we are looking at the colour palette, and theme "Vogue". This is the perfect look for a Summer into Winter wedding! Vogue consists of different golds and rose golds, with striking silhouettes and bold statement pieces. 

Over the past year or so, Rose Gold has been the trend, and whilst this is still very popular, Gold is also making a come back, encrusted with sequins and sparkles, to make your day extra special!

Using gold as a main colour, instead of just an accessory is a big statement, so we feel it's only fit to carry this through into the bridal look, with figure hugging gowns made up with heavily embroidered-or lace fabrics, and beautiful statement trains! Paired up with this, is a suave silver- grey suit for our groom and groomsmen, who could even go all out and get a top hat and tails with this glamorous look! 

Why not save some money when having this super expensive- looking, theme wedding, by making your own table centrepieces out of old wine bottles, sprayed gold, with added glitter around the top? Check out our pinterest board for more ideas around this theme! www.pinterest.com/cheadle_bride

Brides of the Month- April

Its time for bride of the month! And this month is the turn of our beautiful Sarah, who won our Valentines day VIP appointment last year! Here is a little bit about what Sarah had to say about her time with us in the shop, and how she found her perfect dress!

"Living quite far away from my sisters and Mum, I had always planned to have just one visit to a bridal store that stocked my dream dress. I thought I would walk in and choose my gown but then a competition changed it all! My sister in law to be had purchased her dress from Cheadle Bride and tagged me in their valentines competition on Facebook. I followed the instructions liking and commenting on the post without thinking anything more about it. Fast forward a few days and both my sister in law and I had been pulled out of the hat! Someone somewhere knew I was meant to visit the shop! We were treated to a VIP night and, despite being heavily pregnant, Jen made me feel so comfortable (even though I was like a fish out of water when it came to shopping!) I enjoyed trying on all of the gorgeous gowns but my mum couldn’t make it. As my mother in law burst into tears because she thought I’d found ‘the one’, I held back. I couldn’t find my dress without my mum! She is the most important person in my life and I needed her to be there. So after a brilliant evening, I left empty handed. A few months later I attended my original appointment at a different boutique and bought a wedding dress with my Mum and sisters. I loved the dress and it looked beautiful but I had a nagging doubt. Two weeks later I had convinced myself I hated it and didn’t know what to do. So who did I call? Cheadle Bride!....

29177167_10100740839146438_5943691544560140288_o.jpg

.... i knew they would give me honest advice without pressurising me into anything. Catrin was amazing! She let me come back to the shop and try the dress I had originally seen so my mum could finally see it and compare it to the one I had bought. The second I tried it on she burst into tears and said ‘that’s it, look at your face’ but I had already bought the other dress! I couldn’t ask Mum to buy two! Catrin was brilliant and offered to sell me the sample dress at a reduced cost. Luckily, I could return the other dress so I was able to order my gown and have extra sparkles added too! As I was the competition winner, I also received and discount and a free cathedral length veil. Just over a year after winning the competition, my dress was taken back to be steamed ready for my big day and it looked amazing. Despite being a February wedding, the sky was bright blue and the sun shone down on us. The extra layer of sparkle I had added glistened in the sun and I felt like a million dollars. My advice to any future bride would be go with your gut no matter who is around. If you are not sure, take time to think and remember everything happens for a reason! I miss my visits to the Cheadle Bride store but will be forever grateful to the team for finding me such an amazing dress."

Didn't Sarah look absolutely stunning in her dress on her big day? We loved having you here in the Boutique with us, and are so happy that you decided to come back for you dream dress!

We wish you and Hubby all the luck and love in the world, and hope you have a wonderful life together!!

Seasonal Themes- "Crush"

On this Easter weekend, we are looking at our new colour palette "Crush"! This palette is made up of beautifully bright, bold colours, perfect for a mid summer wedding. With rich blues, purples, fuchsias and greens, this is a colour palette that sounds quite daring and bold, but can be carried off by any summer bride, in any dress! 

 

This palette could brighten up any room, or dress any outdoor space, as the bright colours carry the summer feel wherever they're used!

Tying in the bridesmaid dresses with the flowers and over all decor could be done subtly with matching maids, or you could have completely contrasting bridesmaids and flowers- this theme could simply go either way! We've teamed this look with a bright blue suited groom, and a slinky mermaid style bridal look. 

This wedding theme is wonderfully quirky and fun! We have made up a new board on our pinterest ( https://www.pinterest.co.uk/cheadle_bride/wedding-ideas/ ) with different kinds of favours/ signs/ props and gift ideas, that would fit in perfectly, personalising your big day that bit more! 

Lots of love, Team CB xx

 

 

Seasonal Themes- "Oasis"

So far we've gone through Winter and Spring on our palette posts, and now we are into Summer!

In this post, instead of our soft, sweet, pastels, we will be looking more at bold, bright colours, and how to use them on your special day!

Using similar colours to the last post, "Exquisite" but making them a lot bolder and brighter in tone, instantly warms up the look and gives a Summer feel! Tones of blue, pink, green and hints of orange, all create a playful, vibrant look for your big day. We have paired an A-line tiered bridal gown with this look (very similar to our amazing Essense of Australia dress- Cairns) to keep the playful, summery vibe, and got our groom in a lovely bright blue suit to compliment his blushing bride! 

We have had some wonderfully daring brides in bright colours over the years, whether it be full coloured dresses/ bold sashes or a great selection of colours for bridesmaids, they have never failed in making us smile and brightening up even the dreariest Summer days, here in England! 

With this bold summer look, why not tie these colours in with the bridal look as well as the wedding day theme and have some gorgeous fresh flowers in your hair, to make your look really 'pop' on your big day? for more hair inspo, visit our Pinterest page and have a look at some of our favourite styles!!

Seasonal Themes- "Exquisite"

Unlike the crazy mix up of weather we are currently getting here in the UK, in our Seasonal Themes we are well into Spring, almost approaching the Summer months ahead! This weeks palette theme we've called "Exquisite", due to the rich colours we are starting to introduce alongside our pastels. This palette consists of the greens and pale pinks that we usually associate with Spring, but adds some richer tones, and a few hints of gold. 

Building up these colours in different tones really adds richness and depth to your palette and brings us away from the typical Spring time colours without jumping straight into the summer looks!

With this, we think a cool grey or silver suit for our Groomsmen really adds to the look, and some beautiful ivory lace and appliqués on the Brides dress really bring her into focus, and brings this look all together. 

Did you know that green, like pearl, was once considered bad luck if wore/ used on someones wedding day? With many brides currently going for dresses embellished in pearl detail, and the beautiful colour swatches of green supplied by countless bridesmaid companies, we think that if anything the green brings luck, as well as elegance to your big day!!

Until next time..

Lots of love, Team CB xx

 

 

Bride of the Month- March

We love hearing back from Brides after their big day, and receiving pictures of them in their gorgeous gowns! This Months Bride, was a little different than most. Opting for a blue sequinned fitted dress, and with talks of having a cape (which she did in the end!) Chrystal went for our "Elsa" dress by Alfred Angelo, which was inspired by Disney's "Frozen"- and she looked amazing!!

Here are some pictures of Chrystal on her special day, and a little quote about her time spent with us in the shop.

 

Screen Shot 2018-03-08 at 13.02.45.png

"I'm not what most would consider a "traditional" bride and I knew from the get-go that a white dress just wasn't for me. I knew I wanted something different while still maintaining a very bridal look, and Jen and the team did an amazing job in helping me find just that.
They were patient and friendly, and listened to all my feedback after each dress I tried and I fell in love with the Elsa inspired dress by Alfred Angelo. It was the not-white, sparkly, figure hugging dress that dreams are made of, oh, and did I mention it had a CAPE?!!
The whole experience was amazing and I'm honestly kinda sad I can't go back and try some more...
Thank you Cheadle Bride for making my dress dreams come true!"

We loved having Chrystal and her family with us in the shop, and think that she looked absolutely incredible on her big day by the beach! Especially with the fabulous pink hair!!

We wish you and your new husband all the luck and love in the world, thank you for choosing us to share this memorable time with!

Lots of love, Team CB xx

Seasonal Themes- "Comfy"

This week we are heading into spring (unlike the actual weather we are experiencing at the minute!), and going for a more relaxed, low key look, with a colour palette consisting of pale powder pinks, blues with hints of tweed and brown tones creating a classic vintage look. 

These gorgeous pastel colours are perfect for a spring time wedding, creating the "classic" bridal look, but then when we add browns and tweeds in to the mix through the Groomswear this completely updates this look - and immediately creates a quirky feel that a lot of our Brides currently love! This is the kind of relaxed styled look, which suits an outdoor wedding surrounded by greenery, the perfect low-key country wedding!

I have included dresses from our "Beautiful" collection by Enzoani in the imagery this week, as the soft tulle and delicate appliques/ embroidery on these dresses, ties in with the spring vintage look. Alongside these are our gorgeous Multiway bridesmaid dresses, perfect for an entourage of different shapes, as everyone can have the style which makes them feel most comfortable! 

At Cheadle Bride, we love this natural look which shows off our beautiful brides personality as well as look on their big day. We also love this as we feel we are all quite creative here in the Boutique, and love to make garlands, paper flowers, and bunting to dress our stands when we attend different shows around the North West. This type of wedding is the absolute perfect style for you, if you too want to get creative and save some money by making your own decor for you big day! 

Why not visit us on Pinterest, and take a look at our "DIY" board, where we have saved some of our favourite ideas and designs!

Lots of love, Team CB xx

Seasonal Themes- "Shine"

After our lovely Rosy theme , we have gone for a much cooler look. We have called this weeks theme, Shine, as it mixes hints of metallic with cool greens and greys.

With the weather still a bit grey and the sunshine trying to cut through the clouds to welcome in Spring, this palette is the perfect choice for a Winter / Spring wedding. In comparison to the last, this cuts out the warm tones of pink and red, making the look a little less festive, and a bit more sophisticated. 

We here at CB, think that silver accessories work perfectly with this look, as silver carries off a cooler look as appose to a warm gold, however a lot of brides will check which best compliments herself and her entourage and work the palette to best suit them.

Remember, if you have cool skin tones (pink, red or blush undertones) you are most likely to suit silver and paler cool colours. If you have warm skin tones, (yellow, peachy or golden undertones) you are most likely to suit gold and bold warm colours. A great way to check this is to look at the veins on your wrist- if they're blue, you're cool, and if they're more green, you're warm. It doesn't always depend on hair colour!

Look out for our next post when we will be looking into Spring!

Love, Team CB xx

 

 

 

 

Seasonal Themes- "Rosy "

We are now well in to 2018, with lots of brides coming into the shop looking for their dresses for the upcoming year, whilst discussing themes and colour ideas to compliment their dress/ venue. But the season that the wedding is going to take place in, is just as much of a factor!

Over the next few weeks we will be looking at different colour palettes and styles to compliment the seasonal changes! 

And we are kicking off the themes with "Rosy" !

This palette mixes reds, burgundy, as well as pink and purple hues to create a stunningly sophisticated look. The deep tones of red still give the feel of winter, with a touch of romance as Valentines day approaches, and the playful pink and purple accents, give a splash of colour and the feel that spring is on its way! These beautiful colours compliment a steely grey suit, making the groom stand out with his ivory bride on their wedding day. 

The perfect palette for a winter-spring wedding! 

For more inspiration on this colour palette please visit our pinterest page https://www.pinterest.co.uk/cheadle_bride/rosy/  

and stay tuned for some more colour ideas!

Brides of the Month- February

After a brief break over Christmas, we are back with our Brides of the Month!

Its very exciting in the shop when we get two brides together, each trying to surprise the other yet worrying about if there dresses will compliment their other-halfs. Kathryn and Siobhan both, in turn, came to our boutique in search for the dress of their dreams, and lucky they both found them! Here are some gorgeous pictures of the brides on their big day, and a little bit about their experience with wedding planning! 

  
 
 

"We chose the beautiful venue of Nunsmere Hall in Cheshire for our special day. 

We were very lucky to have guests from many countries, including Zambia, Canada, Australia, USA and Cyprus.

Having been together for three years and already sharing a home, we don't have many secrets! One we were determined to keep was our wedding dresses.

We worked with the lovely team at Cheadle Bride to ensure our secrets remained safe! It was a perfect day to celebrate our love, with family and friends.

Our big tip is enjoy all of it - what seems stressful can always be fixed and it’s over in a flash! 

Thank you for everything #teamcheadlebride

Kathryn and Siobhan"

Bride Of the Month - November!

Introducing our bride of the month for November....the beautiful Tiffany Stoneman (now Chevis). It was a pleasure each time Tiffany stepped through our door and we are over the moon for both her and her new Husband starting their new lives together. We are very thankful to have been a small part of their very special day! We wish both Mr + Mrs Chevis love and luck for the future from all of us at Team C.B xx

Here is Tiffany's Story ...

"In April this year I planned a weekend with my mum, mother-in-law and three bridesmaids – we booked appointments at Cheadle Bride and one other shop, and I had no expectations that I’d find what I wanted. It was just a chance to get the girls together and have some fun, and I fully anticipated going to fairs and sample sales on my own afterwards.

23156968_10154717695657271_4243013765257089706_o.jpg

I think I tried about 10 or 12 different styles at Cheadle, and Catrin was amazing at making the day feel special but also staying objective. She read my facial expressions and responses to the different dresses and made new suggestions based on the way I was responding – her intuition definitely paid off!

I didn’t have that ‘The One’ moment on the day, but kept thinking about the Alfred Angelo Amelie dress in the week after the appointment. The ladies at CB let me come back twice to swan around in it for half an hour or so whilst I made up my mind. It turned out to be fairly different to what I’d thought I’d wanted – instead of sleeves I had straps, instead of a high front I had a v-neck – but in the end I couldn’t imagine wearing anything else.

23157022_10155062848430893_6655599183432242456_o.jpg

We had a bit of drama as the week my dress was meant to be delivered Alfred Angelo went bust. I spent an anxious hour waiting for the call but miraculously mine was one of (if not the!) last AA dress to arrive at the shop. I’m so grateful to Catrin and Gwen for keeping me calm when I know you were dealing with a lot yourselves!

CB recommended Moira to me to do some alterations, and she was fantastic even when I called her up with one week till the big day for some more tweaks.

23231536_10156862124953345_8848747618798765878_n.jpg

Our wedding day was simply perfect. In the DIY venue of Hargate Hall in the Peak District, it was completely relaxed and laid back. Walking down the aisle (to the Jurassic Park theme tune!) I felt so proud and happy, and couldn’t stop giggling through our vows. Simon was blown away by the dress, and guests kept saying they’d never seen such a beautiful gown. My advice to any future brides is on the day just forget about everything you’d planned and enjoy the moment. Take two minutes after the ceremony to have a glass of fizz with your new husband and soak it all up!"

''I came to Cheadle brides early this year ready for my wedding this September, I remember it being a special day as it was the only day I could get the majority of my bridesmaids together as they live so far apart. The ladies at Cheadle bride really made it special for us and we loved every minute. Everyone was amazed that within just one visit I had found my ideal dress and bridesmaids dresses, but I did and we couldn't have been happier.'

"My wedding day was amazing, when people say it's the best day of your life they are so right. If I could give any advice to future brides is that it's the personal touches that really counted. Because my husband is a huge ice-hockey fan I surprised him with a few special touches. I used his hockey skates and put sweets in them (I lined them with bags first) and I borrowed hockey sticks from his team and got guests to hold them in an arch for us to walk under. It was these things that essentially cost nothing, that people remembered the most. We also printed pictures of family members who sadly couldn't be with us and put them on each table with a little bit about them in the order of service."

" The speeches and seeing your family and friends mingle, these are the things you'll remember. Don't sweat over the big things, enjoy the process and make it as personal as you can. Congratulations ladies x"

Exiting photoshoot ahead!

Here at Cheadle Bride we are always on the lookout for great wedding suppliers within the local area so we can give our brides recommendations to use for their own big day.

Last week we met the absolutely wonderful Craige Barker who is based just down the road from the boutique. We were blown away by the quality of his work, value for money but most of all his passion and enthusiasm for the work that he produces. We have the pleasure to announce that we will be working with Craige during the coming weeks on a really fun, dramatic photoshoot! We love something a bit different so watch this space!

 If you have yet to find a photographer for your day why not have a look at Craige's work, it definitely won't dissapoint!
