New Season Styles

Rock that Dress!

Susan Hinckley of Parham House Brides gives her predictions on the best bridal gown trends for the coming season. "Silhouettes will be simpler, less detail, and an additional twist on the classic gown is the illusion inserts, which were so popular with brides during 2021. 

Sleeves, not strapless gowns with romantic lines in organza, lace and satin will feature strongly amongst many collections.

Beware of Shattered Dreams...

We hate to say this but buying a wedding dress from an image online over the internet is not always guaranteed to work, can be fraught with difficulty and end in tears. We suggest you visit the sample sale list of genuine designs from featured bridal shops with typical savings of up to 70%  and can try and buy the same day. These dresses are current sample wedding dresses which are discontinued styles and/or end of season lines. The best thing is that you get a full service from the bridal shop as well as a reduced price, so there's no need to take a risk buying your precious wedding dress from an unscrupulous trader. These so called traders are hard to eradicate, as soon as one website is taken down another opens up to prey on brides who are looking for a bargain. So don't take a risk with your dream wedding dress, take a look at the sample sale list or check out the websites of bridal shops in your local area as they are sure to have a rail of wedding dresses you can buy on the day at a discount.
