Choosing a stand-out wedding dress

We often get brides wanting something a bit different to the norm. A great way to achieve this is by looking for an alternative colour to the traditional ivory or white. Many designs are now available in a range of colours, from subtle blush pinks to daring blacks.

Considered a tea-length dress. These look fun and quirky, especially when teamed with unusual shoes. A pair of bright coloured heels can tie the whole look together. A huge trend for 2022 is 3D florals, and we can't get enough of them! Whether it's a decorated train or the whole dress, these embellishments are a great way to ensure you stand out on your big day.

What to expect when ordering a bespoke wedding dress

When you order a bespoke wedding dress, you're signing up for a personal service that will be tailored specifically to you. Bespoke is often seen as prestigious and out of reach for many, but don't be afraid to ask for a quote. Calculate your budget, and you may realise down the line going bespoke is a similar cost to ordering a gown and paying extra for alterations. The initial price tag of your made-to-order design may seem more expensive but do keep in mind that all alteration and fitting costs are typically included. With most dressmakers, you'll be required to book an initial consultation. Take this opportunity to discuss your budget and prepare some inspirational pictures or a moodboard. We love to see your vision, style and vibe for your wedding day.

The Enzoani Trunk Show will take place on Saturday 20th November where the boutique will be showcasing their full 2022 collection.

We interview Cumbria-based bridal boutique, The Bridal House

The Bridal house first opened its doors in 2017, offering a small range of bridal and prom dresses. In 2020 we took the plunge and moved to a larger premises in the town centre of Barrow in Furness. We also became a Gaia Brand Partner, expanded our collections to offer additional designers, began stocking a larger choice for bridesmaids and introduced a flowergirl range. I carefully handpick every single style that is brought into the boutique and don't pack my rails with filler dresses. We only sell a style a handful of times to ensure we are keeping with the fashion, we live in a small town and feel this way our brides' guests will be unlikely to of seen their gown on anyone else in town. We offer bridal, bridesmaid and flowergirl appointments along with prom. We offer services such as dress steaming, preserving and packaging, customising wedding trainers and hangers and a "dress the bride" service on the day of their wedding.

How to add seasonal touches to your wedding dress

My best advice would be to purchase a shawl or over-the-shoulder faux fur in an autumnal shade. This would look amazing and be practical as the weather starts to turn a little cooler. You could also add a red petticoat underneath your dress, so when your photographer takes photos you can show a splash of colour when you twirl or lift your dress. Lastly, don't forget your shoes! They don't have to be white or ivory and are a fun way of incorporating your theme.
