Harrogate Bridal Show 2017
We are now back from the Harrogate Bridal Show 2017 and settled right into finding our brides the dream dresses! We had an amazing time at the show and in Harrogate (if you haven’t been its well worth the trip!) as well as the Bridal Buyer Awards. We thought we’d take the opportunity to share some of our highlights of the show!
There was a fantastic selection of brands and amazing new dresses on show at the exhibition and it was honestly too easy to find new styles for you! We have purchased a new small capsule collection of beautiful fully beaded gowns made to our specifications to offer you something truly unique, something you simply won’t find anywhere else.
The new designs from Mori lee are fab this year! Next season is going to be a great one for them and not a strapless lace fishtail in sight! All new, all innovative and very fashionable. We can’t wait to get their new styles in! The new bridesmaids are gorgeous too, lovely new colours and the styles are so on-trend right now!
We arranged to see the Wendy Makin French Collection in store later this year, we love Wendy & Geoff and are very happy that we’ve finally got the space on our rails to showcase their beautiful collection. Dresses arriving spring 2018.
Oh and finally, we refreshed and topped up with some fab new bridal accessories. Including a beaded cashmere caplet and a fur coat! Very luxe! And rose gold jewellery and belts.
The Bridal Buyer Awards 2017
Then onto the inaugural Bridal Buyer awards at the Harrogate Bridal Show 2017! Always an amazing event, great fun and the reason why many of us are wearing dark glasses on the last morning of the show…! Its usually a very ‘celebratory’ affair! 😉 Some of our suppliers and dear friends were deserved winners on the night and we were pretty pleased with our own little win!!
Enzoani won best bridal manufacturer and Mori Lee best customer service – both of which we wholeheartedly agree with, they are always a pleasure to deal with! An old friend of ours Ian Stuart won best Occasion wear, and although we no longer stock his designs as we don’t do Mother of the bride any more – we certainly did party the night away with him! See below…
We were very honoured to have won one of the biggest awards of the evening ‘Long Standing Retailer of the Year’! A massive achievement and one we are very proud of! The award has now taken pride of place on our desk amongst our other treasured memories!
There you are, the Harrogate Bridal Show 2017 done! An amazing awards night, a great win and most importantly some fabulous new wedding dresses and bridesmaids coming that you will love!!
Book your appointment now and we’ll see you soon!
