Seen The Dress But Don’t Know Who Designed It?

Having spent weeks visiting all the local bridal stores and searching what feels like the whole, entire internet, you have at last spotted the most incredible wedding dress on some random web page or social media website. The problem is, all you have is an image to go by. You have no idea of the name of the dress nor the name of the designer! It is a most frustrating position than an increasing number of brides are facing in this modern digital age.

So you’ll be relieved to hear that help is at hand thanks to our unique, International Wedding Dress Search & Identification Service. Just send us a pic of the dress or a link to the image and not only will we be able to identify the name of the dress and the name of the designer, but we can also tell you if it’s available to buy or hire and how much it is.

Furthermore, if it is available we can order it for you and have it shipped directly to you or to a store of your choosing. And if you then need help with the fittings and alterations we can even arrange all that too! What more could a bride-to-be ask for?!

To find out more about our exciting new Wedding Dress Search & Id service just give us a call or email us.

Yolan Cris – Fringe Wedding Dresses

Fringes were first seen on dresses back in the 1920’s when women started wearing short dresses cut above the knee. A fringe simply offered the illusion of length and a more modest style of dress, at a time when flesh was not so openly flaunted as it is nowadays!

Wedding Dresses, Autumn 2013

It was New York’s Bridal Fashion Week earlier this month. To sum up, here are a few random comment from the media.
Mindy Weiss: “This season, the designers are doing a lot with lace and sheer sleeves. This adds such a delicate and Grace Kelly-like touch to the gowns that make them timeless and elegant.”
Time Magazine: “…juxtaposed dramatic flowing skirts with sleek columns, delicate lacework with voluminous tiers, and headpieces galore…”
Elle UK: “…from simple, barely-there necklines to ethereal confections lavished with lace.”
Daily Mail: “… traditional romanticism reigned… with dramatic flowing skirts walking next to sleek column silhouettes, all prettily decorated with delicate lacework or tulle tiers; and in an ode to Anne Hathaway, veils were replaced by statement headpieces.”

I’ve included a very small selection of dresses that stood out for us. More to be seen on our Pinterest site.
