August: The One. The Wedding Dress. And This Month It's Personal.





The Wedding Dress Of Your Dreams.. 

Hello beautiful brides!


We have decided to dedicate our August blog to your one and only. No, we don't mean your partners, we mean THE ONE. The wedding dress of your dreams! 

So, here at White Bride we are absolutely, head over heels in love with all things Wedding (as all of our past and present brides will tell you). When we get new gowns in, we get all giddy and excited, just like you will when you find *The One*

Do you know why it is SO important that we love what we do? Well, I'll tell you.. 

From the moment you step in to White Bride you know this experience is going to be a special one. All those beautiful gowns hanging up, all the accessories draped over the glass tables and the best part? It's all about YOU

We close our doors for your appointment because we want you to know that we are as invested in your wedding day as you are. 

We want to know all about your upcoming wedding, about the wonderful person who you're deciding to marry and we want to know about your dream dress. 

Here are a few important things we think will help you out in the dress choosing process. 





You have to be comfortable.

In regards to the dress, this goes without saying. Your dress needs to fit you right for your perfect day. You have enough to occupy you on your wedding day without having to worry about your dress! 

We also believe you need to be comfortable trying on dresses. If you're extremely nervous, then you need to bring people with you who keep you calm. 
You also need to feel comfortable in the shop with the people who are helping you in and out of dresses as well. 
This is also why we have an appointment only policy because if you're nervous, then all of our attention is focused on you and making you feel relaxed. 

You need the look. 

If you are planning on wearing a veil on your big day, then ask to try one on to see the complete look. Sometimes it helps to see what the gorgeous dress you're standing in will look like with accessories too! 

Be open to suggestions. 

If this is your first time trying on wedding dresses, then be open to try on other styles that you might not have thought about! 
We have had so many brides surprise themselves at how much they love something that they might never have tried on! 

Listen to your heart. 

Opinions are important, that is why you brought those people with you to your appointment, but always listen to your heart. You have to love your dress, it's so important that you do! (See our wedding photos below. We LOVE ours!)

Ask.

It's great to look at ideas online for what you want your wedding dress to be, but if you can't get the exact Pinterest gown you want, then let the shop know what your absolute favourite part of the dress is and they will always do their best to help! 

Have fun. 

Last, but not least, always have fun. Planning your wedding is meant to be an enjoyable experience! You will want to look back in years to come and have enjoyed every single part of it. 


We hope we have given you a little advice to help you along the way and if you haven't already come in to see us at White Bride, then get in touch! 

Love,
Sally & Jess.

July: Important Pre Wedding Celebrations For The Bride & Bridal Party!




Brides, this is where you hand the reins over to your bridal party to organise.. The hen do! 

Whether your maid of honour is taking you away for a relaxing spa weekend or you're swinging through the trees for an activity weekend, it's bound to be one you won't forget. 

We've picked out some great ideas from your hen weekend accessories to some beautiful places to visit. 
Don't forget to share it with your bridal party to drop them some hints! 




*Make sure your name is on your drink with these cute engagement ring glass accessories. These are great to add a personal touch, for people to get to know each other and easy to make.

*Get your ladies to leave you messages of love before the big day for you to keep forever with this lovely book from Not On The High Street. ~ http://www.notonthehighstreet.com/illustries/product/hen-party-message-book-by-illustries

*Who needs a whole photobooth? Photo accessories are a must to ensure your hen celebrations are full of laughter! 



It's your wedding, let everyone know you're the bride! 






*Something sweet as a bridesmaid treat. Homemade sweet packets for a midnight snack. 

*No Hen party is complete without a little quiz to see how well your bridesmaids know you.. 



A few of our favourite ideas.. 



What better way to celebrate your wedding than a weekend getaway for some sun, sea & sand or a girly weekend in the countryside.. 







Keep it local.. 


You could spend a relaxing weekend at the local St. Brides Hotel & Spa. Where you can drift away in their infinity pool or enjoy an afternoon tea.

No matter what your hen party budget may be, there is something for everyone. Get creative, get personal and don't forget to invite the Mum's! 


Thank you to Mari Watkins for helping out with July's bridal blog.
We hope you enjoy! 

Love,
White Bride.
