It’s an exciting day here at Ivory & Co!  Tomorrow for the first time our brand new dress designs will be unveiled to brides at the Designer Day we are attending at Krystle Brides at Bath.

All the beautiful new styles will be available for brides to see and try on.  There are stunning new styles from our Haute Couture Collection – dresses with classic styling, huge dramatic trains and flattering silhouettes to give a tiny waist.  These are made in fabulous fabrics – pure silk organza, and silk satins.

There are also new styles from our Heritage collection, 1920’s inspired bridal gowns that could have stepped right out of The Great Gatsby.  This is right on trend for all the brides wanting that Art Deco look that is so in fashion.  These are floaty stylish dresses in silk chiffon and with soft silk draping cowl backs and glittering crystal accents.

If you want to be amongst the first brides to see these stunning new styles – just call Krystle Brides on 01225 446844 to book an appointment.

Veronique Dress ordered within hours of arriving with bridal store!

As many of you know although we have been best known over the years for our tiaras and wedding accessories, this year saw the launch of our first collection of Ivory & Co. bridal wear. (Fashion and bridal design is what I majored in at university nearly 20 years ago and since then I worked in fashion in London and New York so I was really going back to my roots this year with this venture).

Since I got back from honeymoon it has been a hive of activity here sending the first deliveries of dresses to the wonderful bridal boutiques that placed their orders at the Harrogate trade show in Autumn. Today is an exciting day as we got the call from one of these stores to say that a bride had ordered one of our designs!  What makes this even more special and unexpected is that the shop in question – June Brides in Glasgow – only received the dresses this Saturday and the bride selected it that very same day!

The bride chose one of our favourite designs – ‘Veronique’ which is a 1950’s style tea length dress in stunning silk organza with a lace bodice (see pictures below).

So many thanks to June Brides for being the first to sell one of our beautiful dresses and good luck to the bride herself – we hope you have a wonderful wedding this summer…

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…….
