Razzle Dazzle Them!

Returning back to normal after attending Bridal Heaven that is the Harrogate Bridal Show, which we attend every year to bring you back the most beautiful gowns for your big day, We have spotted one trend that will be everywhere over the next few seasons. That is SPARKLE! And we are so happy about it!

Jewel - D2615.jpg

Of course this is not something new in Bridal, embellished glittering gowns have always been an option in the Bridal world making sure every Cinderella girl has the chance to be her very own princess for the day, However we have noticed that the next seasons this has been cranked up a notch in contrast to the elegant simple gown that is also desirable at the moment.

2771-3.jpg

Other trends to look out for in 2020:

Statement Sleeves,

Sleeves have been making a gradual comeback and this is every growing bringing different styles making more of a statement.

Sleek and Elegant

There is plenty out there for the Sleek and Simple Bride, creating smooth lines and curves with great pattern cutting. Simple goes are classic, timeless and wont be going anywhere soon.

Geometric, Floral and Leafy Lace

We saw more of a shift towards less traditional lace this year as Designers keep trying to push the boundaries with their designs. There is so much floral and natural lace perfect for a more relaxed whimsical bride, with a contrasting geometric lines created in other designed, going away from the usual french crowded lacing.

Wedding Speeches - 10 Top Tips

Traditionally it’s the Father of the Bride, Groom and Best man who makes the speeches at the wedding breakfast. However it has become more and more popular for the bride to also say a few words. So if this is you, here are our top tips to make the perfect speech…

bride-wedding-speech.jpg
  1. Less is More - 10 minutes maximum your guests can get restless, so keep it short but sweet and we can promise the tears and laughter will come.

  2. Make some notes - It’s your big day, there is so much going on, keep a few prompt notes incase you get distracted half way though!

  3. Tell a Story - Have a beginning, middle and end to your speech and let your family and friend learn something about you or your partner that they don’t know.

  4. Add Humour - A joke or funny family stories always go down well and keep everybody engaged and smiling.

  5. Props - Give your bridesmaid something to bring to you that will add to your speech, an inside joke that you are willing to share, a nod to where you or your partner is from, something sentimental that goes with what you are saying.

  6. Toast - If you do want to make a toast remember to make sure that your guests glasses are full.

  7. Rehearse - Get an honest opinion from a trusted friend, and go through your speech out loud a few times to highlight where you forget.

  8. Take your Time - Don’t rush your words as everyone needs to be able to hear what you say!

  9. Thank you’s - Thank everyone for being an important part of your Big Day, especially those who have helped with their time or financially.

  10. Last but not least - Have fun! This is your wedding day and it will fly by so quickly so remember to enjoy the moment.

Veil or no veil?

We often get asked about wearing veils; are they still relevant for the modern bride with so many alternative options available?

Whist some may choose a hair comb, vine or floral crown there is no doubting the sheer elegance of the veil.

Traditionally worn to prevent the groom seeing his bride before the ceremony, the veil can do so much more to complete the wedding look.

Veil+.jpg

From a traditional cathedral veil to the quirky birdcage veil, which look would you choose?

And ladies, who could resist the opportunity for the iconic wedding photos a veil can create?

If you still need convincing, come in and see us!

You cant have a tennis themed wedding without getting some of the guests involved in a game….after you have beat your other half first of course!

Bride of the Month - June '19

It’s Bride of the Month time once again. This month, June Is one of the busiest months of the year when it comes to weddings. To celebrate our gorgeous Bride of the Month Angela, who has just married her Groom Phillip, has shared her experience and her words of wisdom for future brides-to-be. And as always, we get a sneaky look into her wonderful day!

file5-3.jpeg

“I remember being extremely anxious before I started looking for a dress wondering whether I’d feel like I’d found ‘the one’ when I did. I’d given myself plenty of time and had started looking about 11 months prior to the wedding as I’d had friends tell me it can take some time for the dresses to come in, and more than anything I really wanted to be organised. I always knew that I wanted high neck which was my only none negotiable point; my neck and chest often get flushed when I’m nervous, so I didn’t want to be worried about that on the day (as I expected the nerves!). Other than this, I was not sure what I wanted, and initially thought I would have something quite simple and floaty, which in the end was not what I chose. I’m 5ft 1, and I tried one bigger dress and quickly ruled out the full princess style as there’s quite a big of height difference between me and my now husband (who is just over 6ft) and I thought it made me look smaller and it just didn’t feel like me.  I went to a shop a friend had recommended that stocked a designer I liked, and after trying on 6 dresses I really liked 2 (which where opposite in styles! One form fitting and one floaty). After some debating, I felt neither was quite right, and there wasn’t anything else that caught my eye, so I left feeling a little overwhelmed but not yet defeated. 

file1-4.jpeg

I had decided I preferred the fit of the more fitted of the 2 dresses, but I felt the top wasn’t quite right on the one I’d tried, so I started to look at similar dresses I had saved by different designers and came across what was to be my dress! The dress was by Essence of Australia, the top was lace with some slight shimmer with a similar fit. We had got engaged in Adelaide in South Australia and when I saw the dress was called Adelaide, I felt like it was meant to be and hoped I wouldn’t be disappointed when trying it. I looked up the nearest stockist and came across Cheadle Bride. From the get-go, Catrin was extremely accommodating, told me the price point of the designer and I made an appointment for an evening the following week. 

On the day of the appointment I arrived and as well as the dress I had seen, Gwen helped me pull some other dresses to try on the day also and was lovely. I tried on the Adelaide dress first and I absolutely loved it! It just made me feel really special. The train was much bigger than I had thought on pictures, and I wondered whether it was a bit too much, but if you can’t do it on your wedding day then when can you! I tried on a couple of the other dresses, but the more I tried, the more I was sure I wanted the Adelaide dress and could imagine getting married in it. After getting back into it I didn’t want to take it off! The thing that surprised me, was that other dresses I had tried were more flattering, but this one just felt more like me. 

file-7.jpeg

The wedding day ran smoothly, and my husband and I had a great day celebrating with friends and family. I absolutely loved the morning with my bridesmaids which will also be something I’ll always treasure. The weather was not on our side! It rained all day none stop despite it being glorious sunshine the weekend prior! But I found that on the day I felt extremely calm about everything and it really didn’t matter. All of the suppliers you use from the venue to the caterers to the photographer do this all the time, and they know what needs to change when its wet, so it ran without a glitch still. 

file3-4.jpeg

The best advice I received, or wish I would have received before the wedding was:

-       Your dress will look different after alterations – I was lucky the dress was in my size so didn’t need pegging, but even though I thought it fit like a glove it still was pulled in several more inches! And it really does transform it! There’s so much that can be changed also at the alteration stage if you need it to be.

-       Wedding dresses are often really hot, take a little freshen up bag and make sure you have deodorant, and some freshen up wipes etc. I also added mints/plasters/safety pins – just in case!

-       Make sure you don’t try on any dresses you can’t afford. The dress I bought was over my budget, and before I had made the appointment, I ensured we could tweak the budget should I love it.

-       Everyone says to try on lots of dresses, but whilst I tried different styles, if I really didn’t like an element of a dress I didn’t try it on. I knew myself and that it would overwhelm me to keep trying dresses so I only tried on ones I really liked. I tried on 11 in the end and felt it was enough for me, but I’ve had friends try on many more and love it.

-       Be honest around what you do and don’t like with all of your suppliers; I had a lot of highlighter on at my trial and it’s not something I like so she changed this, and I much preferred it. Whilst they know their job you must feel comfortable too. 

-       Your make up with feel heavier on the day; at my trial I was convinced I had far too much on, but there wasn’t and it looked lovely.

-       You suppliers are such a huge part of your day, so make sure it is people who are great to be around. My hair and make up woman was so calming on the morning and it was exactly what was needed. My photographer is the most enthusiastic person I have ever met, and this is so infectious! Finally our event organiser from the caterers was lovely and put me at ease from the get go – our music wouldn’t work after the speeches and she resolved it without bothering us, I was totally unaware until the next morning.

file4-3.jpeg

A big thanks to the ladies at Cheadle Bride. You made the dress trying experience lovely, and stock some absolutely beautiful dresses. “

We all at Cheadle Bride wish Anglea and Phillip every happiness for a life of love and laughter together.

Until Next time…
