The office here at Ivory & Co. is a hive of activity today as we get the tiaras and dresses ready for a busy weekend at The National Wedding Show at the NEC! Our dresses and tiaras will be featured once again on the catwalk show, so make sure you go and watch!
Our changing room was constantly busy last weekend, with a steady stream of brides trying on our designs, so if you would like to try on our dresses, it’s a good idea to come a little earlier, or come along while the catwalk show is on – it gets much quieter then!
We met some lovely brides last weekend, and we look forward to meeting many more at the NEC. Here’s a picture of a beautiful bride, trying on Sydney, with the Oriana Organza Bolero and the Pearl Birdcage Veil. Doesn’t she look stunning?
Here are just a few photos of our dresses on the catwalk! Hoping to get some professional ones too, and maybe even a video. The catwalk show ran four times a day, and each time our scene ran, we had brides rushing over to the stand wanting to try on the dresses that were featured. Anais was a clear favourite, and it really did look stunning on all the brides who tried it on! One bride didn’t even wait until the end of the scene, once she saw Ophelia, she came straight to see us to try it on! The Bruno Mars song, Just The Way You Are, really set the scene and the mood for the dresses. We had a lot of lovely feedback all weekend, and we all really enjoyed helping many brides try on their very first wedding dress!
Calling all London brides! Just a quick message to let you know that we will be in the capital this weekend, showing all of our wonderful tiaras, headbands, haircombs and jewellery at the UK Wedding Show in the heart of London’s Dockland area at Excel.
This is always a really busy show and we are expecting this year to be no different with brides lining up to try on tiaras and veils and to get advice about which items will best suit their dress. If any brides out there would like to take advantage of our trained professionals being on hand to give experienced advice – please come along early as the stand gets filled up to the brim with brides as the day goes on.
We can be found at stand no. 198 at the show and will have on display over 350 different styles of bridal headpieces, so I’m sure we will have something for everyone. We hope to see you there…..
I know that the snow is still on the ground and it feels so early to be thinking about the warmer months, but with time flying by as it has been, Summer will be with us before we know it! And Summer is still the most popular time of the year for weddings. More brides than ever will be tying the knot between late Spring and Autumn and now is the time for brides to be making decisions about their dress, accessories and bridesmaids outfits.
To make it easier for brides to choose the right accessories for Summer weddings we have a seasonal section in our Inspiration pages on our website. This allows brides to see our recommendations for Summer weddings (as well as the other seasons too). There is a selection of tiaras, headbands, combs and jewellery all with pretty floral themes that are just perfect for weddings here in the UK or warmer weddings abroad on beaches and in gardens.
Now is the perfect time to be thinking about selecting the right accessories for a wedding in the Summer season as it will leave enough time for hair trials and to take along the accessories to dress fittings to make sure that everything matches perfectly. (And remember any accessories bought from us can be exchanged up until the wedding so no panic if the tiara doesn’t go with the dress – it can simply be swapped with something more appropriate).
For brides out there who have not yet chosen their dress – we also have many stunning wedding gowns in our new collection that would be perfect for a Summer wedding. Take a look at our new bridalwear website – www.ivoryandcobridal.co.uk
