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.

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"

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!

Want to get married in Greece?

Summer is here and following our lovely bride of the month getting married in Greece, we thought we would delve a little more about getting married in this beautiful country. You never know it could be you next planning your romantic getaway! Weddings in Greece are one of the most popular choices for a wedding abroad, and you can see why, with the excellent weather, picturesque towns and villages and quiet beaches.

Each island or area of Greece has a different atmosphere, suitable for all tastes, from quiet, sleepy hamlets to modern towns and resorts. Below are our top 4 destinations to go to.

1. Let’s start with the most popular island, Santorini. It is popular for good reason too! with any picture-postcard picture of Greece you will most often find the white-washed buildings of Santorini with its contrasting blue so beautiful against the water. It is often voted one of the most beautiful locations in the world and I can see why! So why not start a beautiful marriage in a beautiful location!

2. If you are looking for a more traditional feel Crete could be the island for you to become Mr and Mrs. Being Greece’s largest island, Crete has a fantastic mix of old and new, there is a vast landscape full of natural beauty, pretty churches and ancient ruins (what a fantastic photo opportunity!) I feel this would be a great island for a rustic natural wedding.

3. Another pretty island, Rhodes, is an easy destination to get married in. Rhodes old town is picture-perfect for wedding photos, and the island is surrounded by a multitude of sandy beaches and clear blue seas which make fabulous wedding choices.

4. Amongst the stunning Ionian islands lies the beauty that is Zakynthos or Zante. Filled with gorgeous beaches, soaring cliffs, turquoise seas and its naturally beautiful caves. There are many options for getting married in Zante. You could hire your own private beach, private gardens or even an ocean view terrace. There are so many possibilities to capture that picture perfect moment in time.

Follow our Pinterest page to see more images of this stunning country (link button below)

Need to know You will both need a CNI, copies of your passports and legalized translations of your birth certificates, and must present the original documents to the registrar three days before the wedding. You can only marry in a Greek church if one of you is Greek Orthodox. You will need your marriage certificate translated to register the wedding in the UK.

Bride of the Month - July

Here are a few words from our lovely July bride of the month, Sarah. A fantastic destination wedding to get you in the summer mood! Look at the AMAZING photos below we wish we were out there with her! We wish her and new husband a lifetime of happiness. xx

"Getting married abroad I was a little nervous about choosing my wedding dress and flying it over in one piece, but from start to finish the team at Cheadle Brides were fab! Their patience whilst I tried on multiple dresses, their help in choosing a beautiful travel box and their recommendation of an amazing seamstress, the whole process was stress free. The day before I was due to fly the team expertly packed my dress along with all my accessories and bouquet- they even managed to fit in my partners suit so that we could safely take it all in hand luggage! Thanks to their expertise the dress was flawless when I unpacked it and I felt truly amazing wearing it on my wedding day. "

Future brides you are in safe hands choosing Cheadle Brides :D

June - Bride of the Month!

We are stepping closer to summer with the month of June upon us. To celebrate we want to have a look back at our stunning bride Alycia who got married recently looking absolutely breath-taking in her Alfred Angelo Rapunzel gown. Here is a few words about her experience finding her perfect gown here at Cheadle Bride!

“It is true when they say you know when you try on your perfect gown. I had tried about 30 gowns on with my entourage before visiting Cheadle Bride. It was a stressful day, and one I didn't want to repeat although I did not find my dress. I made the decision to visit Cheadle Bride alone on a different day, but last minute I felt guilty and informed my mum about the appointment. I arrived and was greeted so kindly. I explained what I did and didn't want to the assistant and allowed her to pull anything she though fit my criteria from the rails. Trying the first dress on I felt slightly uncomfortable but Catrin and her assistant chatted to me and calmed me down by explaining it was only natural to feel like this when trying gowns on, especially alone. It was when I was climbing into the second dress I realised this was IT.“

“As I stepped out from the curtain my mum arrived. It had everything I wanted in a dress and I felt fabulous. It was then I was informed it was actually part of the Alfred Angelo Disney collection, the Rapunzel! I truly did feel like princess in it! The perfect thing about this experience was the team at Cheadle Bride, they make sure you know there is no pressure. They advised me to come back again at a different time in they to see how I felt in the dress after sleeping on it. Myself and my mum returned to order the dress a few days later and the contact from then until the day of the wedding was brilliant. They care for each and every bride that walks through their door, they really made me feel unique and special. Thank-you Cheadle Bride for making this experience a great one!”

Alycia it’s been a pleasure having you with us in the boutique and its wonderful for us to see all your smiling faces on your wedding day! We wish you all the joy and happiness for your new future together!

Love

Gwen and all at team CB X 

Looks like a really fun day to us! :D
