Designer event with fabulous prize of wedding dress!



We want to let all brides out there know about a fantastic event that we will be attending that is being organised by the multi award winning bridal store Creatiques.

This will be a designer weekend showcasing our Ivory & Co. collection of bridal gowns at the gorgeous Queens Hotel in Southsea. The entire collection of silk wedding dresses will be on display for brides to try on as well as a huge selection of the Ivory & co. accessories collection of headpieces, jewellery and veils.

This will be an opportunity for brides to meet the Ivory & co. team including head designer Sarah Bussey who will be on hand with her sketchbook to be able to make any custom alterations to any of the dresses or even design bespoke dresses from scratch for any bride wanting a special dress made individually for them.  So if you have always dreamed of having a bespoke bridal gown made definitely don’t miss out on this special event.

Any bride who chooses a dress on the day will get the special gift of £100 voucher towards any Ivory & Co. accessories to choose to match their dress.  Most exciting though is that there will a competition during this designer event which every bride attending will be entered into – to win an Ivory & Co. wedding dress!  The lucky winner will be able to choose any dress from the whole collection to be made just for them.

The event will be held on 20th – 21st July at The Queens Hotel, Clarence Parade, Southsea, Portsmouth, PO5 3LJ.  This hotel makes the most wonderful afternoon tea, so why not find all you need for your big day and then treat yourself to celebrate in style!

This Designer weekend is free to attend but is an invitation only event so to be able to come along please call Inspired by Creatiques on 023 9282 5959 or e-mail to arrange an appointment with Sarah and the Ivory & Co. team and get a formal invitation to attend.

This weekend will be a wonderful opportunity for brides to meet the designer, ask for advice, see the whole range and try on different styles in a relaxed environment… so we hope to see you there x

Most successful White Gallery ever!

We have just returned from the busiest few days that we have ever known at the wonderful White Gallery trade show in London.

A huge thank you to all of our lovely stockists who came along to order and see our new collections and to the new stores who decided to become an Ivory & Co stockist.  It was really lovely to catch up with everyone and we were overwhelmed by the response to the new headpieces, jewellery and dress designs.  We will be hard at work in the next few weeks to fulfil the mountain of orders taken at the show and to make sure that everyone has these new designs as quickly as possible.

It was fantastic to also see our dress designs on the catwalk in the designer preview show on Sunday and Monday.  The dresses looked fabulous on the models and there was such a fantastic vibe with the perfect music to accompany the styles and the press flashing away to get pics for the new season.  Brides magazine have already uploaded video of our dresses on the runway on twitter! to view click Brides video 1 and Brides video 2.

We would also like to say a very big thank you to the loyal Ivory & Co. staff who worked so hard with us in London.  They were tireless in their efforts to help everyone who came onto our stand and we are especially grateful to those who came along on short notice to help out.

See you all again next year x
