Getting ready for the NEC…

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?



See you all in Birmingham!


Bridal Boutique of the Week!

It’s time for our weekly recommendation of the best bridal boutiques in the UK….

This week we are focusing on the fabulous boutique – The Pantiles Bride. This boutique heads up a group of stunning stores that really are the place to go for the ultimate bridal buying experience.

If you are looking for a designer bridal gown then look no further than The Pantiles Bride in Tunbridge Wells.  Over the last 15 years they have carefully selected the best gowns by British and International designers including established names such as Alan Hannah, Sassi Holford, Suzanne Neville and Augusta Jones.  Designs by Ian Stuart and Anoushka G were also introduced in 2011.

Visiting the store itself is a wonderful experience… situated in the historic elegance of the 17th century Pantiles this is the ideal destination for choosing your wedding gown.  The store is on two floors and has spacious changing rooms with air conditioning (perfect for fittings in those hot summer months).

What makes this store so special is the friendly and knowledgeable team (with over 30 years combined experience) who go the extra mile to help you to find the gown that will make you look and feel incredible!

Once you have found the dress of your dreams the in-house technical alteration team is on hand to ensure that it is a good fit and finished to the highest standards.

Also don’t miss their “Star Buys” – this is like a year round sale – sample designer gowns at discounted rates!

After just a year of The Pantiles Bride opening they had won the Best Newcomer Award and have since won a total of 10 awards in the space of 4 years including the Best Emporium Award for the Millennium!

As well as this flagship store, there are also the sister stores Go Bridal in both Tunbridge Wells and Birmingham City Centre. So if you are based in these areas and still looking for that perfect dress we couldn’t recommend a better place to start!

These stores have a wide selection of our Ivory & Co. accessories so you can be find everything you need from top to toe!  2012 saw a special accessories event at The Pantiles Bride featuring our designs – this was a fabulous occasion allowing brides to try on all things sparkly! If another event of this sort is scheduled for this year I will keep you posted…….
