I Don’t Want a Wedding Dress Train

Everyone written about in our bridal wear woes blog posts is delighted for us to share their story with you to get a better insight into how we work and how we help solve your bridal wear problems.


 

So we once had a bride who in her own words is the ‘most tomboyish tomboy ever and lives in Jeans and Tee- Shirts’.  At her first consultation, she told me that she just hated dresses and the very idea of putting on a wedding dress was making her break out in hives. It took us a while to convince her to try on some wedding dresses and she was so pleasantly surprised when she saw how beautiful she could look in a dress if only she tried.

After she had tried on a few dresses and she had told us her likes and dislikes, we sketched the most stunning wedding dress for her and it got to the point where we were discussing her wedding dress train.   When I asked her what train length she wanted, she looked at me funny like I was speaking another language.  She said she could just not imagine the foolishness of having a wedding dress train. She felt she would look really silly and her exact words were ‘who do I think I am, Princess Diana?’  I tried to explain to her that wedding dress trains could add something special to the whole look and she has to remember that she is a bride just for that one day.  I explained to her about different lengths of trains and advised her to go for a sweep/ brush train that literally just swept the floor by about 5 or 6 inches from the dress hem. She looked at me like I was crazy and said thanks but no thanks.

Different Wedding Dress Train Lengths
A Little Education on Different Wedding Dress Train Lengths

 

I decided to create her sketch and show her the view of her wedding dress with a train and without a train just to see what she thought of the comparison.

Wedding Dress Train
Wedding Dress Sketches Showing No Train and Sweep Train

She looked at both pictures and she said to me that she felt that the sketch without the wedding dress train looked like a normal party dress or a prom dress.  She said she felt that she would be missing out on something if she went without a train and she was only hoping to do this once anyway so why not go the whole nine yards. I was really surprised at how quickly she changed her mind.  Please don’t get me wrong,  while I don’t believe that having a wedding dress train is the most important part of your wedding dress, I believe that it is indeed very important that you are entirely happy and completely over the moon with the wedding dress you have chosen.  In my role, it is imperative that I present you with all the different options available to you based on the wedding dress design you have gone for and then sit back and let you decide what works best for you.

So our bride made up her own mind but of course with our expert guidance as to what type of wedding dress train she really wanted and believe me when I say she was totally happy wearing a dress after it was created for her despite her previous disdain for anything remotely feminine. Result!

I hope you have enjoyed this week’s installation of how we resolve some bridal wear problems.  I have worked with hundreds of brides in the past 11 years and I really do love recounting these stories.

Happy wedding planning and many blessings,

Omo xx

Wedding Dress Shopping with a ‘Mahoosive’ Entourage

Everyone written about in our bridal wear woes blog posts is delighted for us to share their story with you to get a better insight into how we work and how we help solve your bridal wear problems.


Last year, we met a bride who very excitedly booked her wedding dress shopping appointment with us and when we sent her a pre-appointment email which included amongst other titbits of information, the question about how many people will be accompanying her to the consultation.  To this, she replied 15!!!. Let me repeat that – 15!!!.  Shock!, Horror! and most definitely a serious state of panic.

We tried to convince her that it may be a good idea to come with less people for an initial wedding dress consultation with us but she wasn’t having it.  Some of her aunties, cousins and bridesmaids were coming from far away and she could not deny them the pleasure of seeing her try on wedding dresses and pick the one.

So the beautiful day arrived and so did our very lovely bride and her humongous entourage.  Believe me when I say we were outnumbered very many times over and even though I have done this for eleven years, it takes a very strong person not to feel a pinch intimidated at first.  I should not have been worried though because by minute 5 into the consultation, I could understand why she wanted all of them there. I felt like a part of the family and was already laughing so hard that I could barely speak.

When our bride started to try on dresses, we quickly realised that we could have a really explosive situation on our hands as of course they all had a different idea of what should work and what shouldn’t, what suits her and what doesn’t and what they would have worn and what they would not be caught dead in. Everyone was talking at the same time and the bride could just not get a word in.  At a point, she put her hand over her ears and looked ready to cry.  We had to ask everyone to tell us one after the other what they thought of the wedding dresses she tried on.  They were all so happy to oblige when they realised how distressed she was getting and then we really began to have a lovely time.

One of her aunties thought she looked like a nun in our Victoria Dress from our Jadé Bridal 2015 collection even though our bride said she loved the long lace sleeves and soft chiffon skirt of Victoria. Her aunty wanted her to show a bit more skin.  She must have said ‘if you’ve got it, then flaunt it‘ a thousand times.  Oh, the joys of this wonderful occupation.

Her Mum said she had always envisaged her in a really full skirt wedding dress with a bit of lace as the detail and so we had her try on our Avina wedding dress from our Grace and Lace collection

Her sister loved Amira so much that she got really teary when our bride put her on. She loved Amira’s sexy slinkyness and she could just not get over the low deep V lace back. She said that would have been her ‘the one’ if only she could find a man who would be crazy enough to marry her. I laughed so much at this consultation.

Amira

We decided to have her try on Aleah as we felt that she would incorporate quite a lot of the different details that everyone seemed to agree suited our bride and I’ll tell you what, I’ve never seen someone look as happy as she did when she was in that dress. There were tears all round and for the first time since they had been with us for over an hour, there was silence.  It was amazing to behold. To just nail it, we decided to add a veil to the look and my goodness, the reaction was magic.  I heard someone say tearfully ‘you look like a bride’ and I thought, ‘that’s exactly what we want her to look like’.

Aleah

Good old Aleah! ‘She’s done it again‘, I thought. Our bride loved the alencon lace, the tulle A Line layer, the satin mermaid skirt layer, the bateau neckline, the deep V back. Everything. There was nothing about Aleah she did not love… weeellll, except for the train.  She could not imagine navigating a 40 foot train on her wedding day as she said she is very clumsy and would probably fall flat on her backside trying to unwind herself from the folds of the train.  We decided to create a shorter train for her instead and I could not believe it when I everyone’s heads bobbing in unison and complete consensus.  Have I told you how much I love this job? Another bride had found the one and we allowed her to make her changes to make it perfect for her. Result!

I hope you have enjoyed this story about one bride’s wedding dress shopping experience with us and how we worked with her big party to get the best out of everyone and ensure that we all had a really lovely time at the end of the day.

Happy wedding planning and many blessings,

Omo x

A Stunning Lace Wedding Dress for an Older Bride with Style

A beautiful lace and organza wedding dress for an older bride created for an amazing, EM Bride Jackie Clements is the feature of this week’s bride spotlight.  We are so pleased to be sharing pictures sent to us by the bride herself of her on her big day.

We met Jackie at a wedding fair on a very rainy day that turned out to be quite a great outing for us.  She was with her fiancé and they made us laugh even in the short time we spent with them.  She soon sent him away as she wanted to get down to business talking about her dress and she didn’t want him to know anything about it.   She explained to us that she had been trying to look for a perfect wedding dress for an older bride but she didn’t want something frumpy or old fashioned.  We were excited when she decided to book an appointment to come and see us in the shop there and then.

When Jackie came to see us, it was really lovely to go over the details of different wedding dresses she had tried on and she described to us her likes, dislikes, body-loves and body-hates and what she envisioned herself in.  We had a good laugh going over pictures of some dresses she had previously tried on and didn’t like very much.  We created a sketch for Jackie and she was very happy with it.

Wedding Dress for an Older Bride
Jackie’s Sketch

We explored different options of fabrics for the main part of the dress and Jackie decided that she really wanted an organza and lace A Line wedding dress with a beaded cord lace and a pleated waist detail. We added in lace cap sleeves because she said she wanted to cover the tops of her arms and a pleated satin waist band into the design.

We were excited to get cracking. Our very talented dressmakers created Jackie’s wedding dress and she came in for her first fitting.  Brides are usually very nervous at their first fitting and Jackie wasn’t any different.  She came with her daughter and we went over all the tweaks she wanted applied to just the neckline and skirt to make it perfect for her. She also decided to add a beautiful beaded appliqué  at the middle of the pleated satin waist band just for that added ‘wow’ effect. The finished dress was stunning.

Here are some pictures of Jackie on her big day

A Stunning Lace and Tulle Ball Gown Wedding Dress for EM Bride, Emma

We designed a beautiful lace and tulle ball gown wedding dress for a really fun EM Bride, Emma.  She was always such a laugh and we had a really lovely time every time she and her Mum came into the shop.

I met Emma when she came to see us after her cousin Michelle, who I knew through networking, had recommended that she give us a try. Emma came to the then very new studio to discuss her wedding dress with me and from the word go, we got on like a house on fire. She was feisty, fun and full of laughs and I just knew that we were in for a happy ride with her. She and her Mum are some of the nicest people I have ever met.

We got talking and Emma explained her ideas for her wedding dress. She told me that she loved tulle and she loved lace and if she wasn’t sure of anything else, she was very sure that she definitely wanted her wedding dress to include those two fabrics.  She showed me pictures of dresses she liked and she also told me that she had no problem whatsoever having a dress designed especially for her.  We asked Emma to try on some of our wedding dresses so that we could see what works and what doesn’t, practically.  We tried on mermaid wedding dresses, A-line wedding dresses and as soon as we tried on the Ariana wedding dress from our Grace and Lace collection, she got this big smile on her face.

Emma loved the sweetheart neckline and overlapping ruched detail of the bodice of Ariana and she also loved the fullness of the skirt.  She made it clear that she definitely wanted her dress to be created in a tulle fabric as she considered it a more whimsical and romantic fabric than duchess satin.  She also advised that she needed the touch of lace to complete the design.  We pinned some lace appliqué we had available in the design studio onto the dress to create cap sleeves and Emma loved the look of it. I got sketching and this is what I came up with for Emma.

We decided to add some more lace detail to Emma’s dress by adding some more lace appliqué to her ruched tulle bodice and also scattered on her full multi-layered tulle ball gown skirt.  She was really excited about the design and could not wait to see the finished dress.

Here are some beautiful pictures of Emma in her wedding dress in our studio and on the big day itself.  Enjoy…

Bridal Wear Woes: Bridesmaid Dresses for Different Shapes and Sizes

Everyone written about in our bridal wear woes blog posts is delighted for us to share their story with you to get a better insight into how we work and how we help solve your bridal wear problems.


Once we had a bride who told us from the very first consultation that indeed she intended to be a bridezilla :).  She said she had waited for so long to have her moment as a bride that she wasn’t going to let anyone make choices for her that she would look back on with regret.  I said to her ‘that’s definitely noble but do be gentle’.  We both laughed.

She chose her dress easily enough because again she knew exactly what she wanted but when it came to the issue of the bridesmaid dresses, we had a ‘bit of a problem‘.  How do you choose 5 bridesmaid dresses for different shapes and sizes and even different everything else?  The bridesmaids were all so different and in every way you can possibly think of; looks, personality, fashion tastes, outlook on life, that the bride did not even know where to start from.

Bridesmaids Dresses for Different Shapes and Sizes

 

Our bride had told the girls that she wanted them all in the same bridesmaid dress and the same colour and she was not changing her mind for anything or anyone.  She really put her foot down even though I had already advised that we could go with complimentary styles and colours for each girl. In spite of this warning, each girl wanted a different bridesmaid dress in a different colour and please believe me when I say every. single. one. of. them liked something different. It sounds incredible and the bride was starting to get stressed out.

We started with colour and our bride had already decided that she would choose her wedding colours after she had chosen the colour of the bridesmaid dresses.  What a mistake this turned out to be.  The bridesmaids were each asked to pick out a colour and of course, they all went for colours that were so different from one another; plus, each of them did not like the colour that the others chose. Oh My Goodness! This was a fun consultation and I could see that my bride was seeing red.  At this point, the bride decided that she didn’t want them to pick the colour any more and she would decide on what colour to go for which she said she would do when we had agreed on the dress.

So we started discussing the design of the dress and each of the girls had explained to us the style of dress that suits her and of course again, they were all very different.  The bride was starting to get quite stressed out again so we had to step in quickly and ask the girls to each pick out 2 dresses that they would like to try on. Practically all the dresses from our 2014 bridesmaid collection were picked out. There were short ones, long ones, strapless ones, one shoulder ones, lace ones chiffon ones; the whole lot!!!

When each girl had tried on her two bridesmaid dresses, we asked everyone what they liked or disliked about each dress.  We took lots of notes and from this, we observed the following trends

  • Most of the girls did not want a strapless bridesmaid dress
  • Many of them did not like satin bridesmaid dresses
  • A few of the girls did not want to show the top of their arms and armpit area. Some even cried ‘back-fat’
  • Some of them had had children and so had lumps and bumps to hide so they were very averse to anything clingy
  • A few of them hated the colour pink or any other too bright colours that made their skin look pale or sallow
  • All of them liked lace (I was shocked that there was something they all loved but our bride made it clear that she could not afford a full lace dress)

I got quite excited because I was getting an eureka moment where a dress had started to dance around in my head that just might work for these very different bridesmaids.  I was envisioning a bodice like EMBM11 with the asymmetric ruching across the bust waist and hips but with more of an A-line skirt so as not to hug the hips too tightly but created in a chiffon fabric with a lovely drape quality and soft handle like EMBM12.

Bridesmaid Dresses for different shapes and sizes
Sketch showing the first design that I recommended

This dress would deal perfectly with all of their concerns except for the covering of arms issue and I was also conscious that the one feature all the girls loved (lace) had not been incorporated into this design.  In spite of the bride’s worries, I decided to add a lacy butterfly sleeve to the design and give it a bit of a statement back so there’s something to look at if the girls turned around and which wouldn’t break the bank.Bridesmaid dresses for different shapes and sizes

Oh, how they all loved this dress.  The bride was a bit stunned when each girl said she could definitely wear this style of dress as it had addressed all their worries perfectly and of course I sat there beaming; literally like a Cheshire cat. Result!

Hope you have enjoyed this story about  how we can help you find perfect bridesmaid dresses for different shapes and sizes and I look forward to sharing the next one with you my lovelies.

Happy wedding planning and many blessings,

6 Really Great Bridesmaid Gift Ideas for Your Leading Ladies

This week we bring you some really great bridesmaid gift ideas for the ones who have made this wedding planning experience even more special for you.

Bridesmaid Gift Ideas

So they’ve agreed to be your bridesmaids; against the odds and even after you have already told them that you plan to be a bridezilla and will milk this wedding planning time to your advantage and to no end.  They’re still up for it and you really want to reward them.  They have made the process beautiful and seamless; they have held you when you cried in sheer frustration because your mother-in-law has added yet another unknown cousin to the guest list.  They have shouted down the phone at wedding suppliers who refuse to reply your emails; even though they told you that they are never open at 12 midnight.  They have trawled round a 1000 bridal shops with you looking for the perfect wedding dress and oohed and aahed over every single dress you tried on.  Girl, please reward them and reward them well.  Here are some really great bridesmaid gift ideas that will make them forgive and forget your bridezilla moments and appreciate you even long after the wedding.

A Stunning 50s Style Lace and Tulle Wedding Dress for the Most Delightful Jennifer

We designed a beautiful 50s style lace and tulle wedding dress for a bride who we now fondly refer to as ‘Our Jennifer’.  To say that this lady is an angel will be the greatest understatement of the year.  Never have we met a bride who took care of us as much as we took care of her. She is always there with words of encouragement and kindness at every point and she even made herself available to us at one of our shows to help out along with another lovely bride of ours Katie Balaam.  Jennifer would bring birthday cards, flowers and home-made cakes and all sorts of little gifts almost every time she came into the studio to see us.

I met Jennifer in 2012 on a wet, windy, dark and dreary day in a forlorn Marquee at one of the loneliest wedding fairs I have ever been to and as soon as we started to chat, we hit it off.  She showed me lots of pictures on her Ipad of her vision for her wedding.  She loves vintage, sparklies and quirkiness and I could see that even from how she dressed and talked.  I thought to myself ‘what a sweet and friendly person, I wonder if I would ever hear from her again’.

I did hear from Jennifer again and we arranged to meet at my then studio which was the grand location of my converted garage behind my house. Jennifer came to see me with her Mum; who seemed quite apprehensive at the start because she must have thought ‘oh dear, a bridal shop in a garage. What has my daughter got herself into’ but we soon got chatting and she could see the passion behind what I do. We discussed Jennifer’s design.  Jennifer showed me some pictures of wedding dresses that inspired her and I drew a sketch of the tea length lace and tulle wedding dress she had described to me to show her and Mum my understanding of Jennifer’s requirements.

Estilo Moda Bridal Reviews, 50s style lace and tulle wedding dress
Jennifer’s Sketch

They were very approving of the design and then we discussed the choices of lace, types of beading and other details of Jennifer’s dress.  We got cracking creating Jennifer’s dress for her wedding.  This was the beautiful result of that project.

Estilo Moda Testimonials, Wedding Dress Designer Milton Keynes, Tea Length Wedding Dress, 50s style wedding dress, Vintage wedding dress, blue petticoat tea length wedding dressAt one of our design consultations, Jennifer advised that she would like us to edit her wedding dress so that she had a light blue petticoat instead of the typical ivory or white and that got me really excited as I like when brides put their own mark on their dresses.  This is what her fabulous petticoat looked like.

Bridal Wear Woes: I Hate Every Dress My Mum Loves

Everyone written about in our bridal wear woes blog posts is delighted for us to share their story with you to get a better insight into how we work and how we help solve your bridal wear problems.


 

So we had a bride once who knew exactly what she did not want in a wedding dress and not much of what she wanted.  Unfortunately, for this bride, Mum knew exactly what she wanted her daughter to wear and she was not worried about expressing her preferences strongly.  Don’t get me wrong, we loved this Mum as we do all the Mums who come with their daughters to discuss wedding dress design with us. We love Mums. They can be the most long suffering, self-controlled and indulging people you would ever meet but in this case, Mum made it clear to us that she came with her daughter to help and certainly help, she would.

The problem arose where every single dress Mum picked out was exactly what our bride did not want.  Bride said to me that she thought they were all beautiful but she just knew that she wanted something different but didn’t know what it was.

Of Alexi, she said she loved the soft and romantic swirls of the organza and tulle skirt but she definitely didn’t want a one shoulder. From this, we highlighted the word soft and romantic. Mum thought the mermaid silhouette of Alexi was sexy and would show off her curves but Bride was adamant that she did not want to show off any curves in her wedding dress.

Alexi Front View

Of Ariana, she said how much she loved with the way the full circle skirt draped and swished but she certainly did not want a strapless. From this, we got a better understanding of the fact that she did not want any attention on her hips.

Ariana - Satin A-Line Strapless Wedding Dress

Of Amira, she said she was very very very smitten by her deep V low back and the beautiful cotton lace with big leaves and flowers appliquéd on the bodice but wanted a skirt that would hide her hips moreStatement back wedding dress milton keynes

Of Aleah, she initially thought she had found the one and actually considered a mermaid underskirt and A-Line tulle overlay featured on Aleah for a long time as a fabulous compromise between hers and Mum’s choices. She eventually said she would rather keep the lace illusion bateau neckline bodice and the A-line tulle overlay trimmed with a corded lace border but have the satin mermaid underskirt as an A-Line as well.

Aleah - Lace and Tulle Illusion Neckline Mermaid Wedding Dress

I got super excited at this point because I had the perfect dress dancing around in my head for her.  You would think that after almost 12 years of doing this, I would be all “weddingdressed out” (my own special term for it) by now but No, I still get incredibly excited when a design starts to fall in place and a bride’s personality and preferences start to evolve. Anyway, back to Bride. I created this sketch for her and showed it to her and Mum and oh the expression on their faces!

Low Back lace wedding dress

At this point, she proceeded to show me a picture she had saved on her phone which had features that were so similar to the dress I had sketched for her and I was thinking ‘err, why did you not show me this picture when I asked for your inspiration’ but to be honest, I’m happy she didn’t show it to me because it would have looked like we just copied that design.  In any case, we had so perfectly found the one and it may have taken us quite a few try ons, some tears and some tantrums but it was what was in her head all along and she now had the 100% confirmation that it was her dream wedding dress. Plus, she had the added bonus of picking out every fabric and trim that would be used to create her dress; making it even more of a dream wedding dress than any other.   Mum, on the other hand, still felt that she could have turned on the full sex appeal and hugged her curves to within an inch of their very existence but she was really happy and I could see that her daughter’s joy meant more to her than anything else. Result!

Hope you have enjoyed this story and I look forward to sharing the next one with you my lovelies.

Happy wedding planning and many blessings,

Omo xxx

Amazing Wedding Photography: Supplier Spotlight on Litehouse Photography

Are you looking for wonderful wedding photography by an internationally renowned and recognised photographer, then look no further than the fabulous team at Litehouse Photography.

Amazing Wedding Photography

 

 

 

 

 

We worked with Kole who is the head photographer on a photo shoot recently and to say that we are impressed would be an understatement. There is one thing that I always look for in photographers and it’s not just creativity or the ability to create an absolutely stunning image which Kole has down pat but the ability to be patient.  For any type of wedding photography, if you have a photographer who does not listen to your ideas or try to understand your vision, then you have a big problem on your hands.  When I gave Kole the brief for the shoot, I was delighted by his understanding of what we were trying to achieve.  Even though he had his own style of working, he put aside what he would like and listened to what we wanted.  On the day itself, everyone on the team commented as to how patient Kole was throughout the whole thing. We were there for a whole day and not once did he complain or stress out. He was calm and took all the pictures that we required.  Here are a few sneak peeks from that photo shoot for our 2015 wedding dress collections

He never attempts to picture a conclusive story because he loves to allow the viewers mind to tell their own story. His passion for wedding photography and all other types of photography was born out of the need for the shortage of that style of photography. He loves that through his wedding photography, he is preserving special moments in people’s lives. Kole works with couples all over the world and I view him as a jet-setting w edding photographer :).  Here are some images from wedding photography jobs he has had in the past

Bridesmaid Dresses: Getting The Best Shopping Experience

The issue of shopping for bridesmaid dresses as easy as it should be, can sometimes be a minefield for brides. We have seen many brides who have had no problems finding and selecting their own wedding dresses but have found themselves in floods of tears and tied up in anxiety with regards to choosing their bridesmaid dresses. I will address seven of these problems and the solutions to them to make bridesmaids shopping a lot easier to find the perfect dresses for the wedding.

1. Have an Idea of the Design of Bridesmaid Dress You Want: With the advent of sites like Pinterest, brides are finding it easier to shortlist the things that will work perfectly with their style and theme of their wedding.  The bridesmaid dresses should also fall under this category.  I always advise brides that before their bridesmaid consultation, they take a look online and in magazines, to see the styles of dresses that they love and print off pictures of these or save the images on their smart phones to show to us at the consultation. This serves to save a lot of time and typical headaches that come of not knowing what you want.  We have seen where bridesmaids have tried on so many different styles of dresses and still the bride does not know what she wants because she was not adequately prepared in the first place.

2. Set a Realistic Budget:  Some brides set a budget that is way too low for their expectations for their bridesmaid dresses.  We always ask the brides for their budget during the initial consultation process and if we find that her budget is unrealistic, we very gently let her know. We then we guide the bride and bridesmaids around the dresses that are as close to their budget as possible and usually, they find a dress that ticks all the boxes without breaking the bank.   Bridesmaid dresses come in at different price points at various stores. Brides need to do a little research into what they are able to afford before the hit the shops with their bridesmaids. It can be quite disheartening to find the perfect bridesmaid dress and then see that the price tag is way out of your budget.

3. Start Your Bridesmaid Dress Shopping Early:  When it comes to wedding planning, leaving any part of it to the last minute is a recipe for disaster.  I say to the brides that the earlier you plan, the easier it is for you to create as perfect a wedding day as possible and the later you plan, the more you find you have to settle for things. With bridesmaid dress shopping, the norm is to go round a few bridal houses to try on different designs until everyone can agree on the best dress.  It is important to note that the dresses then have to be ordered by the bridal shop from the designer or in our case, created from scratch. This ordering or creation process would typically take 6 months and then the bride also has to take into consideration the time necessary for the fittings and the alterations which would take anything from 4 to 8 weeks. To reduce the stress on the bride as the wedding draw closer, we recommend that the bridesmaid dresses early enough so that they are ready and fitted at least a month before the wedding and then everyone can relax.

4. One Style Sometimes Does Not Suit All:  Women come in all different shapes and sizes and the idea that a certain design will suit every single bridesmaid is another issue that causes problems for brides and their ladies.  There are some dress styles and some fabrics such as A-line dresses and chiffon fabrics that are more forgiving than others. Otherwise, it may be an idea for the bride to choose the same fabric and same colour and allow the bridesmaids to design or choose dresses that suit each of them and they feel comfortable in and complement one another.

5. Choosing the Right Colour:  Again, this is another issue that some brides have struggled with.  Certain women feel they look more beautiful in one colour over another and I do agree.  Girls who are pale sometimes don’t look as beautiful as they are when they wear dresses that are light coloured such as nude or blush pink.  We always advise that the bridesmaids all try different designs to start with and work out which design works best and then each of them try dresses that are the same colours of the bride’s choices and the colour that works best for everyone will be the winner. In some other cases, where the bride is willing, bridesmaids have all chosen different shades and hues of the same colour that suits them best and this looks beautiful also.

Note Important Terms and Conditions:  This is a problem many people and not just brides have; ‘reading small print’.  We once had a bride who failed to read the terms and conditions which included information about fittings and alterations. Two of her bridesmaids went up in size and their dresses did not fit them as their measurements had changed significantly.  The bride failed to read the conditions that said we are unable to increase the size of certain styles of dresses such as chiffon dresses because of how they are constructed. She thought it would be a really easy task to just whip out the machine and fix them. Unfortunately, this was not the case and while she was happy with the solution that we provided to her to remove the stress on her, she had to agree with us that she would have better prepared her bridesmaids if only she had read the terms and conditions properly before signing it.  There are so many points with the terms and conditions of the bridesmaid apparel that brides must take note of so that they are able to work with their bridesmaids and the bridal shop or designer to ensure that a good experience is enjoyed by everyone.

7. Enjoy the Shopping Experience:  Finally, don’t be a bridezilla during the period.  The bridesmaids will have to give up their time and sometimes their resources to ensure that they spend this valuable time with you while you are looking for the bridesmaid dresses.  While it is an honour that you have asked them to be your bridesmaids, it is also a privilege that they have agreed. Therefore, the bride has to make sure that it is fun for them and enjoy the whole process of trying on dresses, choosing colours, taking measurements, fittings and so on.  Go for lunch or drinks before or after every bridal appointment and discuss the experience and any important facts to note. Involve them in the choosing process and listen to their concerns or reservations about certain dresses, colours or anything else.  Make them feel special and you will be sure to find the perfect dresses that everyone is happy with.

I hope this helps you with your bridesmaid dresses shopping.

Happy wedding planning and many blessings,

Omo

The Perfect Wedding Dress: 5 Times You Must Say No to the Dress

The desire to find the perfect wedding dress has driven many a bride almost to the brink of her sanity.  Every bride wants to find ‘the one’. That one dress that will fulfil all your dreams and tick every single box. It’ll make you feel sophisticated, sexy, like a princess, beautiful, hide all your flaws, enhance your strengths and leave everyone speechless.  You know the perfect wedding dress is out there somewhere but you just don’t know where to find it any more and so you have to resort to choosing the best dress for you.  This creates a problem and that problem is how do you decide what the perfect wedding dress for you is without compromising on all the things that mean so much to you.  Here are some of the mistakes other brides have made just because they could not say no to the dress:

1. Choosing a Wedding Dress that Costs £3000 When What You Have is £1000:  Oh what a recipe for disaster.  You are every bridal shops dream. When a bride comes into our studio, we always ask what her comfortable budget is. Sometimes, we get answers that are completely unrealistic like when this bride said to us that she had seen a dress on-line for £120 that she really loved. Mostly, brides are really honest with us and we love that. What we then do is show you the designs that suit your budget.  Some brides would take a walk around the studio and pick out dresses they love and we would tell them the price of it. Once, we had a bride who said she would only spend £800 and her fiancé would kill her if she spent over £1000.  She clapped her eyes on our Beatrice dress from the Jadé Bridal collection and said that she would like to try it on.  I told her straight away that it would be one of the ones her fiancé may not be too happy with but she didn’t listen. Well you know how the story goes; SHE LOVED BEATRICE!  Of course, that was bound to happen.  Beatrice is beautiful but so completely out of her budget.  She called her fiancé to let him know the price and I don’t know what she said to him but that man told her to go ahead and choose what makes her happy. That does not happen to every bride.  The first thing is to do some research about what wedding dresses really cost and what you can really afford. Don’t set a budget that is too low for your tastes and desires and don’t go crazy when you get to the bridal shop to the point where you have to re-mortgage your house.

2. Seeking Everyone’s Opinion and Ignoring Your Inner Voice:  You’ve always wanted a sleek satin number that is figure hugging and backless but Mum really wants a strapless diamond encrusted ball gown with a multi layered tulle skirt and crystals scattered all over. We had a bride once who said the perfect wedding dress for her was the one that made her Mum cry.  Unfortunately for her, Mum kept crying at all the dresses she really hated and so she was so confused. She whispered to me in the changing room that she’s really worried about her wedding dress because Mum does not like what she does.  Luckily for her, Mum could see how she was struggling and she put aside her own preconceived image of how her daughter should look and began to really look at the dress our bride liked.

3. When it is a Designer Dress but on a Dodgy Website and Costs Peanuts:  Yes, this one is very important. The truth of the matter is if these websites were proud of their work, then they would display their own designs on their website and not other designer’s work.  Some girls have been very lucky and ended up with a wedding dress that is wearable and others not so much.  I remember a bride who brought a strapless satin full skirt wedding dress to us which she had bought on-line and she just hated so much. She asked us to alter it for her which of course we could not alter to make it the dream dress she wanted but we were able to create a beautiful beaded illusion neckline top that she could wear over the bodice which was the most offending part of the dress.  She ordered a bridesmaid dress from us which was more expensive than her dress and looked it as well. She still looked beautiful though as the skirt was just plain while the bodice was covered by our top.

4. The Show Will Be About the Dress and Not the Bride:  The amount of times I have steered brides away from making this mistake. I say to our brides you are beautiful and you should be wearing your wedding dress and not the other way round.  I had a bride once who wanted us to throw everything we possibly could on her design as she told me that she needed the dress to be a show stopper.  The only problem with that would have been that everyone would remember the dress but the bride would not get as much attention as she deserves on her wedding day.  Please don’t get me wrong, you should go for a dress that is as busy or as sparse as you please but if that dress masks your own beauty or hides who you are, then it has failed in its objectives.  One of the most important themes of our wedding dresses is that they must create effortless beauty; you will literally look like you stepped out of your bedroom looking fabulous and everyone would be like ‘oh look how she glows’ and not ‘oh what a dress’

5. Its the Perfect Wedding Dress But You Just Need to Chop Off the Straps, Change it to a Backless, Add Some More Lace and so on: Some of the brides bring pictures into the shop of dresses they love but would also love to change some things about.  If I got a pound for every time I have heard ‘it’s the perfect wedding dress for me but I just wish I could change it somehow’.  If it needs anything at all being done to it to make it right for you, then I am sorry but it is not the perfect wedding dress.  What we do for brides who have a dress in their heads is to take the features of the different dresses the like and merge them together creatively and beautifully to arrive at that perfect wedding dress that they dreamt of and believe me, the results are usually breathtaking.

5 Easy Mistakes That Can Cost You Your Dream Wedding Dress

Brides have said to us time and again that they feel like it’s such a minefield trying to find their perfect dream wedding dress. In fact, some of them have said they had to ditch perfect and resolve to go for the best they could find. Others had to settle for a wedding dress after searching for so long and then had to buy another wedding dress when they just could not be happy with what they had chosen.

Easy Mistakes that can cost you your dream wedding dress

We believe that finding the perfect wedding dress already created and waiting for you in a bridal shop may simply be impossible.  Most women know the dress designs they love because they have lived with their bodies all their lives and they know what suits them. Others who are more open to what is available out there feel let down because they never knew they would be so fussy and end up not liking any of the wedding dresses they have seen.

These are some of the reasons we have identified why brides are finding it so difficult to pick a wedding dress and be happy with it:

Easy Mistakes That Can Cost You Your Dream Wedding Dress NUMBER 1 

 Believing That Wedding Dresses on Models in Magazines and Bridal Websites Would Be  Perfect for You

Cleopatra Neckline pearl beaded chiffon sheath style very low back wedding dress perfect for destination wedding and beach wedding

Many brides go through loads of magazines and pictures on the internet before they venture into the bridal shops and more often than not, a bride will see a wedding dress on a model and decide that she wants that look for herself on her day.  The downside to this is that the dresses don’t always look on the bride as they would on the model.  We know from experience that models are photo-shopped in many of those pictures we see to within an inch of their lives.  The brides want this photo-shopped perfection that not even the models can take credit for. Therefore, we get a bride who comes into the shop to try on some dresses and is really shocked that some of the wedding dresses she was so sure would suit her actually don’t.  This leaves a bride feeling extremely frustrated and not really sure of what her dream dress is any more.  We always say to our brides that when they come in to see us, they should come armed with their pictures and ideas but we would prefer to see them try on some dresses and we can design a wedding dress for them that not only suits them but also incorporates some features of the dresses they love in a clever way and would make them look amazing.

Easy Mistakes That Can Cost You Your Dream Wedding Dress NUMBER 2

 Wanting to Try on a Wedding Dress  Way Over Your Budget Just to Satisfy Your Curiosity

This could be the absolute worst thing that you could ever do to yourself.  We always ask our brides what their comfortable budget is.  We believe that it is better to be honest with the bridal consultant and not state that your budget is much lower or much higher than you can afford.  A good bridal consultant should steer you away from wedding dresses that are way above your budget to save you the heart ache and pain of falling in love with a dress that you simply cannot afford.  We found that this had happened to a few brides who had come in to see us and what we did to help them was to choose elements of the dress that could either be created with less expensive fabrics and trims or we edited the design not to be so intricate so that it could be affordable for them.

Easy Mistakes That Can Cost You Your Dream Wedding Dress NUMBER 3

 Having Too Many Opinions at Your Bridal Consultations

1912031_723857647699133_5030964216926525554_n

It is really lovely to have your Mum, Sister, Bridesmaids, Mother-In-Law and everyone else who is able to make it at your first few bridal consultations. However, when it comes to time to make the hard and tough decision of which dress out of the hundreds you would like to pick or which wedding dress design you would like to be created for you specially, then it is better that you make this decision with only one or two people who know you best. Many brides have come to us either with too many people or with the wrong people and some of them have ended up changing their minds down the line regarding the style of their wedding dress.

Easy Mistakes That Can Cost You Your Dream Wedding Dress NUMBER 4

 Leaving Your Wedding Dress Shopping Too Late

We advise our brides that planning is key when it comes to putting together  a wedding day that you would look back on with joy.  This goes for choosing your wedding dress also.  It is really important that you start booking bridal appointments as soon as possible to get an idea of what suits you, what’s available.  For many bespoke designers, 18 to 24 months before the wedding is the typical time that we would love to start discussing your dress.  This is because the process before the production actually starts on the dress and the actual production as well as the many fittings you may need to fit the dress perfectly to your body may take longer than anticipated.  For us, each dress is created indicidually and uniquely and the entire process has to be repeated from design to drawing technical flats, to choosing fabric, to creating patterns etc for each and every dress and this takes time.

Easy Mistakes That Can Cost You Your Dream Wedding Dress NUMBER 5

 Trying on Too Many Dresses

Drop waist lace ball gown and sweetheart neckline wedding dress White Lace Tulle Skirt Illusion Neckline Wedding Dress Lace and tulle dipped base neckline, fit and flare wedding dress with beautiful duchess satin mermaid wedding dress shaped lining. Absolutely stunning.

Our recommendation for trying on wedding dresses before you decide on one dress or which dresses you would like to use for inspiration to design your wedding dress is seven to ten.

From our experience, brides who try on much more than ten get really confused and the decision becomes even harder.

When you find yourself in a position where you are unable to choose any one dress because it lacks something to make it perfect for you or you feel that you would like to combine features of different dresses to create one for you, then you may well be a candidate for a bespoke design wedding dress.

 

 

 


We hope you find this information useful when you head out to the bridal shops.

Have a fun filled wedding planning

Satin and Lace Off Shoulder Wedding Dress for a Really Lovely EM Bride Jackie

Satin and Lace off shoulder wedding dress for one of the most wonderful people we have ever met.

Our bride spotlight this week is on a really lovely bride, Jackie Dodworth who got married in the summer last year.  We met Jackie when she came to our December 2013 Grace and Lace Wedding Dress Collection launch party.  She came with her friend, Katie Balaam who ended up being the collection winner.

Jackie came back to see us after the show to discuss her dress as she had seen a dress on one of the models on the catwalk that she loved. She had her eye on our Anya wedding dress.

Jackie had tried on some other wedding dresses in other shops that she also wanted us to take a look at.  We reviewed the dresses Jackie had tried on and advised that we would prefer to design her one unique design for her and she was very happy with that.  We proceeded to put Anya on Jackie and she looked so beautiful in that dress that she decided it was to be her wedding dress.  Jackie asked if she could personalise Anya to suit her and we asked her to go for it.  She decided to add a lot more corded lace appliqué to the bodice around the bust area at the front and the back to arrive at her dream wedding dress. Here’s the sketch that we created for Jackie at that initial consultation:

Jackie’s Wedding Dress Sketch

We created Jackie’s dress using a smooth and heavy handle luxury duchess satin complimented with flowery lace appliqué that had been heavily beaded using tiny seed pearls, glass beads and iridescent sequins.  The effect was breathtaking on Jackie.  Here are some beautiful pictures of Jackie on her wedding day.

We also created the dresses for Jackie’s three bridesmaids.  She wanted three bridesmaids dresses in the same design and different colours. The colours Jackie chose were pastel pink, green and lilac.  All the colours complimented one another and each bridesmaid looked beautiful in her ruched sweetheart neckline bodice, full length A-line skirt and ruched straps bridesmaids dress.  Here are some pictures of Jackie’s bridesmaids on the day.

This is what Jackie had to say about her experience with us ‘I had my wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses designed and made by Estilo Moda after struggling to find ‘the one’ in other bridal shops. They put on an amazing fashion show at an open day giving me and my fellow bride lots of wonderful ideas. Lisa and Emelie were wonderful throughout the design, making and fitting process. They listened to my likes and dislikes and created the most beautiful wedding dress for me. I couldn’t have asked for anything more. My bridesmaid dresses were equally as beautiful and all the dresses fitted perfectly. 

Estilo Moda gives you more than a dress. They provide an amazing and thoroughly enjoyable experience. They are professional but friendly and they make you feel like part of the family and special at the same time. They also have an amazing eye for detail and add lots of lovely little touches like personalised hangers. A simple but wonderful touch.

I can’t thank Estilo Moda enough for my wonderful wedding and bridesmaid dresses. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding dress, bridesmaid dresses or just a dress for a special occasion. They will make sure that you get exactly what you want and make sure that it fits you perfectly.

Thank you Lisa and Emelie’

We loved working with you Jackie.  You’re one of the loveliest people we have ever met.  We wish you all the best in your marriage and for the future.

Many blessings and lots of love

Omo and the entire Estilo Moda Bridal team

The National Wedding show – Estilo Moda Bridal at Birmingham NEC

The National Wedding Show is the biggest wedding show in England and takes place in some of the biggest cities in the country.  Estilo Moda Bridal will be displaying some of our stunning designs from our Jadé Bridal and Savvy Chic Labels at The National Wedding Show at the Birmingham NEC at the end of February.

The National Wedding Show

 

In October last year, for the first time ever Estilo Moda exhibited at The National Wedding Show in London Earls Court. It was an exhilarating three days for us, we thoroughly enjoyed meeting loads of new Brides and hearing their likes and dislikes on the design of their Wedding Dress.

The Exhibition was a huge success for us we had a large of Brides who visited our Studio and ordered their dream dress from us. With the Brides that travelled to our Studio we asked what they liked about our stand and our services. The first thing they would say was how welcoming and down to earth we all were. Many of them commented on how we decorated our stand, it really stood out to them.

Here are a few photos of the stand:

The National Wedding Show

With decorating the stand we tried to recreate the look and feel we have in the studio; Girlie and vintage. For The National Wedding Show in Birmingham, we are trying to think of ways to improve our look from the last show. One thing that will be different is our New collection Savvy Chic which will have their first outing. It will give us feedback on the new Collection; which will help us massively with the 2016 Collections.

We are hoping that we will be as busy as we were for the National Wedding Show at Earls Court London last September; with plenty of brides wanting to try on our dresses. We had to create appointment slots as the queues for trying on dresses were covering the whole stand.

The National Wedding Show

We are now wanting help from you all! Every week we will be posting pictures of two dresses and we want you to all pick which dress you think we should take to The National Wedding show. We are unable to bring all our dresses as the stand just isn’t big enough, and it is extremely difficult for us to choose as we have grown so attached to each and every dress.

Enjoy your Wedding planning and thank you for taking the time in reading this blog

Lace A-Line Wedding Dress With Sleeves – Alison’s From Sketch to Dress

Alison wanted us to design a wedding dress with sleeves for her based on a dress from our Grace and Lace Wedding Dress Collection.  The changes she wanted on her dress were to add a sleeve, to change the inner skirt from a mermaid to a petticoat and to make it a lace up back instead of a zip and button up back.

We loved creating this stunning dress for Alison.  We created it with the alencon lace fabric and very soft tulle and she looked beautiful in her stunning lace A-line wedding dress with sleeves if we may say so ourselves.  See our post featuring more pictures of Alison’s wedding dress with sleeves and her bridesmaids; whose blue satin strapless bridesmaids dresses we also created.

Happy wedding planning and many blessings,

2015 Wedding Trends: What’s New and What’s Big in the World of Weddings For This Year

2015 Wedding trends have already started to show up from the end of 2014 , where there was still a lot of vintage themes being used and a bit of the 1920s feel because of The Great Gatsby.  Brides love the glitz and sparkle but there’s so much more of this and more to look forward to in the wedding world this year.

Everyone bride tells us that she wants a unique wedding. This new year couples are all about ensuring that their wedding is personal to them with every detail reflecting their personality.  So, how is this personalisation going to be executed? I believe its all in the detail. Every single detail can be made your very own way.

To be in touch with the 2015 wedding trends we have put together popular trends for that we have already heard of frequently from brides and we think is already building a picture for the 2015 wedding trends.

Themes and Décor

We find that the Art Deco trend has been quoted by quite a number of brides for what they seek in their theme and wedding décor.  Brides love the glitz, glam and sparkle.  The decadence and the beautiful artistic symmetry that this era gives.  The idea is to create a very personal and intimate atmosphere while incorporating the elegance and sophistication where family and friends would feel pampered and truly like they have come out for a fabulous day out.  The unwavering appeal of Princess Kate and Downton Abbey aided the influx of stylish details that simply spell glamour.  Here are some Art Deco theme and décor ideas for you:

Wedding Dresses and Bridal Wear

This is where we get excited because we love wedding dresses! The sheer joy on a bride’s face when she is greeted by her dream wedding dress makes us very happy but of course, before that moment comes, there is the whole process of working out what your dream dress is.  These are some of the noteworthy 2015 wedding trends for bridal wear:

– Structured and Sexier Artistic Designs

Olivia – Jadé Bridal 2015 Collection

Colours

The main colours we see in the 2015 weddings trends remain soft and subtle.  We are still seeing the pastels and easy on the eye shades but these are being coupled with sparkly details to give that elegance and glam factor.  Here are some of the colours that brides have been asking for:

I hope this sets you along the way with deciding what you can choose for your big day if you are the sort of person to go for what is trendy.

As we would always say to you our lovely brides, the watch word is comfort! Don’t go for anything you are not comfortable with.

Have a fun filled wedding planning

Lace Mermaid Illusion Neckline Wedding Dress – From Sketch to Dress for EM Bride Katie

The design of Katie’s stunning lace mermaid illusion neckline wedding dress was born of her seeing our Aleah Wedding Dress which has proved to be one of our biggest best selling wedding dresses of all time.  Katie loved Aleah but because of her very petite frame, she wanted a wedding dress that would be more form fitting.  Katie asked us to design a dress along the lines on Aleah that would suit her requirements for a lace mermaid illusion neckline wedding dress and that is exactly what we did.  The rest they say is history.

Lace and Organza Wedding Dress: Exquisitely Designed for EM Bride Rebecca

A Lace and Organza wedding dress had always been Rebecca’s dream wedding dress but she just did not know how to go about getting it.  She prayed to find someone special to create her dream wedding dress for her.  Rebecca is a Christian and told us that she believed that God will lead her to the perfect person to create her dress.  She entered our Summer 2014 Free Wedding Dress Competition and her number was randomly selected from the raffle box in what we can only describe as an amazing miracle.  God does answer prayers.  The whole story of Rebecca’s engagement and relationship with her fiancée was a beautiful one and we were really happy to be involved in the creation of her wedding dress.  Rebecca like many other Brides loved the idea of having a Lace and Organza wedding dress and we set about creating the most beautiful lace and organza creation for her.

Rebecca wanted an A-line skirt and cap sleeve lace and Organza Wedding dress. She wanted to incorporate Lace into her design, so we sketched a design where lace was on the bodice and Cap sleeves. The lace carried from the bodice down to the hips. She had a stunning sweetheart neckline which was emphasised with intricate beading. The Lace cap sleeves had a lovely scalloped edging with the back showcasing this far more. Here’s the sketch that we drew for Rebecca when she came in to discuss her design.

Hear are some pictures of Rebecca in the studio when she came in to fit her lace and organza wedding dress for the first time

Rebecca was just a lovely Bride and we thoroughly enjoyed working with her, Rebecca made our job a lot easier as she knew exactly what she wanted she just needed Estilo Moda to create her Dream Wedding Dress. These are just a small selection of photos from Rebecca’s Wedding day:

This is the message that Rebecca sent us in a lovely card: ‘Thank you so much for the wonderful Wedding dress! I had so many comments about how lovely it was! I will forever be telling people about how I wont it and Gods faithfulness!

I hope you have enjoyed viewing Rebecca’s pictures and have been inspired by her beautiful dress.

If you would like to visit us to try on our large collection of wedding dresses or bridesmaids dresses or if you would like to discuss a design of your own, please contact us by calling 01908925152 or email info@estilomoda.co.uk

Happy wedding planning and many blessings,

Backless Wedding Dresses Galore in our Affordable New Savvy Chic Collection

Are you looking for backless wedding dresses or other stunning wedding dresses at a price to suit you, then read on!

Estilo Moda Bridal has finally released our much awaited new bridal wear brand Savvy Chic which represents your every wedding dress dream fulfilled at prices that would make you whoop with joy. In this pilot collection of the brand, we have created a number of different wedding dresses to suit every bride including the now popular backless wedding dresses at affordable prices. To celebrate our new brand, we thought we should show you some of our backless wedding dresses from sketch to the finished product. This is how we start our process for both our new collections and for each individual bride. Each and every one of our Brides is given a sketch to keep to help them remember their stunning wedding dress design. It’s an experience all our brides enjoy and many say is extremely unique.

Here are some of the stunning backless wedding dresses and Illusion wedding dresses in the new Savvy Chic Bridal Collection:

CAROLINE SAVVY CHIC LACE CAP SLEEVE BACKLESS WEDDING DRESSES

Here is Caroline, she is our version of the Duchess of Cambridge wedding dress. Caroline has a lace bodice in a V- shaped neckline. The neckline is also illusion as she is only lined from the bust down. The lace then carries on to the cap sleeves. The back of Caroline is the real feature, she has an illusion neckline created by just the lace with gorgeous Ivory buttons. For those of you that love a feature back or a backless wedding dress, this is definitely one for you. Caroline’s full skirt is created with a Chiffon fabric which creates a whimsical elegant look.

MILLIE SAVVY CHIC BACKLESS WEDDING DRESSES

Here is Millie, she is our sophisticated woman . Millie has an illusion Neckline which is created from an Illusion fabric. The Bodice is covered in a Corded Lace Applique which is hand stitched on and lightly beaded. The lace carries on from the sweetheart neckline down to the hips. Where the lace stop there is a soft tulle; finishing the skirt in a graceful style. Millie is fitted from the waist down to the hips, then the skirt flares out creating a Trumpet silhouette.

CATHERINE SAVVY CHIC BACKLESS WEDDING DRESSES

Here is Catherine, she’s a dress we are in complete awe of. This is one backless wedding dress that spells statement, elegance and fun all at once.  Catherine has an Ivory soft Lace bodice in a boat neckline, with lace cap sleeves. The waist is emphasised with a plain Chiffon waistband. The skirt has a crimped Chiffon A-line skirt. The skirt has multiple layers with the front having a slit to give you that graceful look. The back of Catherine is also eye catching, with a low lace back.

KATE SAVVY CHIC BACKLESS WEDDING DRESSES

Here is Kate, our adorable dress and named after one of our most beloved brides. Kate is a Full soft lace 50s style backless wedding dress, in a Tea length. She has three quarter length sleeves in the soft lace with buttons at the edge. The front has a Lace illusion neckline with a sweetheart lining visible. The waist has a Satin Sash with a lovely Satin bow to finish it off. The Back of the dress is incredible. Instead of your usual key hole back, Kate has a heart shaped key hole. The heart is emphasised with a lace border and buttons at the neck to hold the shape in place. You can also see the Satin Sash tied at the back into a neat bow. With this dress you can showcase those incredible shoes that usually no one is able to see.

EMMA SAVVY CHIC BACKLESS WEDDING DRESSES

Here is Emma, our classic beauty. Emma has a corded lace appliqued bodice in a strapless sweetheart neckline. The edge of the neckline has a beautiful lace edging to emphasise the shape. The skirt of Emma is in a Classic ball gown silhouette which flatters any body shape. The skirt is created using a Tulle fabric with a light scatter of lace applique, which compliments the bodice. Her back is a zip closure with a dipped back neckline, again emphasised with a lace border

DARCY SAVVY CHIC BACKLESS WEDDING DRESSES

Here is Darcy, she is our subtly sexy dress. Darcy has a vintage flowery lace illusion neckline with a sweetheart lining visible. The lace from the bodice carries on to the top of the hips. The skirt is a sheath style which is created using a Satin Chiffon Fabric. Satin Chiffon has the qualities of both Satin and Chiffon which creates a stunning draped skirt. She has a low lace V- shaped back detail, like the front the lace carries on to the top of the hips. The back has pleating horizontally on the derriere which gives you that womanly curvy shape. She also has a godet at the back to create a waterfall style panel.

Estilo Moda 2015 Bridal Collections Launch

So it’s a New Year and believe me it’s getting old already. Happy New Year to one and all from the EM team.


We had our first event of the year on Sunday 11th of January celebrating Our 2015 Bridal Collections by launching them on a Catwalk for brides from far and wide to see first hand.  Thank you to everyone who honoured Estilo Moda with their presence at this event making it such a huge success.  We had a full house and some were standing.

To celebrate our exciting new collections, we arranged an intimate, super stylish catwalk show at our lovely and welcoming bridal studio in Milton Keynes. We welcomed almost 30 excited brides-to-be and their friends and family. The show which was meant to start at 12pm saw brides-to-be queuing up from 11.30am! Of course we all could not wait for the show to begin and I’m sure every one of us love catwalks so we understand why our brides-to-be wanted to take a front row seat.

2015 Bridal Collections

Any bride-to-be who missed Estilo Moda’s 2015 Bridal Collections launch, certainly missed out on a lot! From the welcoming ambience to the catwalk, the entertainment, refreshments, free goody bags, discounts for every bride-to-be who attended and a chance to win a free wedding dress, a lovely post box, a £50 hairstyling voucher and lots of other gifts.  Oh and there was champagne. What more could a girl ask for 🙂
2015 Bridal Collections - Free Post Box Hire Milton Keynes

There was music playing softly in the background as the ladies enjoyed the lovely ambience surrounded by flowers, draping, vintage lace, embellishments, sequins, pleats and layers.  The show presented a ‘Paris in Spring Time’ theme created by the wonderful Sophie  and Stephanie of Style Your Day who did an amazing job of styling our studio for the show.  The wonderful hairstylists from The Josephs Experience were there to ensure that the models had stunning hair styles for the catwalk and we had Carole of Pretty Perfect create the most beautiful make up on the girls and she also supplied the most exquisite bridal headpieces and accessories you have ever seen to adorn the girls with. Some of our past EM brides were on hand to help and we loved that so much. Thank you to Katie and Jennifer. Their help was so invaluable and it was lovely that the new brides got a chance to meet other brides who had been through the EM experience.

A little introduction into our new bridal collections Jadé and Savvy Chic can be found here. With our new collections no bride is left out. The Savvy Chic Collection is for a bride who knows what she wants but wants it at a budget that she can afford and the Jadé Bridal Collection being for a bride who seeks effortless beauty and is not worried about the budget.

The Wedding dress winner was announced at the end, giving a dramatic finish to the Show and we saw Carol Head winning a dress from our Savvy Chic collection. We gave out many other gifts including a £50 hair voucher courtesy of The Josephs Experience, Free Post Box Hire courtesy of Katie Balaam and lots of other gifts and goodies that we had ready for more winners..

7 Tips for Planning The Most Amazing Christmas Wedding

So it’s that time of the year again that we absolutely love!

I smell Christmas in the air everywhere I go and I am sure you do too.
I am so excited; everywhere looks beautiful, magical and there is so much love with Santa, Rudolph, trees, stockings, mistletoe, sprouts, shopping, exchanging gifts, putting up the decorations…
As excited as we are about Christmas and all its magic, we never stop thinking about our lovely brides and how we can make their wedding planning journey easier.

For all you lovely brides getting married during this most romantic season, we have put together some ideas on how to embrace the season beautifully. We bring you lovely Christmas Wedding Inspiration. The one worry with planning a Christmas Wedding is that what if there is no snow on the day. Won’t it be lovely to have a white Christmas Wedding? However, while there is no guarantee from dear Mother Nature on how the weather would be, you might just be lucky and she gives you lots of white, frothy, beautiful snow for your Christmas Wedding.

Here are some tips on how to create a themed Christmas wedding that would embrace the season in the most amazing fashion:

1) Choose a Venue That Does Justice to the Season

A magical season deserves a magical, beautiful, atmospheric and seasonal setting with rich sumptuous colours, roaring log fires and so on.

Winter Wedding Inspiration
Winter Wedding Flowers

2) Choose Your Christmas Wedding Theme Carefully

Play with Twigs, Christmas Colours, Shimmering crystals, Floral, Berries, Snowflakes, play with naming your tables because you are spoilt with choice, Winter Wonderland theme is great, engage your guests by having Christmas Carols, add some finishing touches with Holly wreath decorations, get yourselves a brolly and wellies don’t worry about the weather, get out there and rock that umbrella for the best ever photos.

3) Set The Tone for Your Christmas Wedding With Your Invitations and Save The Date

Your invitations or ‘save the dates’ will be the first insight into your big day so they are important for setting the tone for your big day – Silver and white are popular around this time of year, along with rosy reds and greens. You don’t necessarily have to stick to a snowflake or Christmas theme during winter.

4) Consider a Wedding Dress That Keeps You Warm

You may want to look at wedding dresses with a higher neckline or sleeves and if you are having a 50’s style dress you can’t go wrong with pretty stockings or tights

5) Choose Your Make-up and Hairstyle Carefully

You may want to consider makeup and hairstyle that would be understated but fierce at the same time. The season is great for red lips and lovely cheek highlighting. You may have a natural glow from the cold weather any way and this just looks so beautiful in your pictures.

6) Choose a Lovely Festive Bouquet and Flower Arrangements

You can get creative with your bouquet and Christmas Wedding flower décor incorporating flowers that show off the colours of the season. You don’t want to pay premium price because the flowers you have chosen are out of season so research the flowers that are in season as well. Your guests would love to be gifted some of the flowers from the décor for the day and for your bouquet; depending on what you choose, you may be able to keep it for life.

Advice No One Gives You About Wedding Dress Shopping

1912031_723857647699133_5030964216926525554_n

Here is some advice to remember when you first decide to go Wedding dress shopping.  If you follow the advice below you are sure to have no trouble in finding your Dream Wedding Dress.

Comfort is key

In the past the majority of Women chose clothing that made them look amazing and it didn’t matter if you couldn’t breath. This is not the case for your Wedding dress. You will be spending the whole day in this stunning dress and you want to be able to enjoy the day without any discomfort. So when you’re trying on those lovely wedding dresses, it doesn’t matter if your friends and family think you look incredible. If you don’t feel comfortable or  the dress doesn’t express your natural self then it’s not the one. Many Brides choose dresses which are stunning but they are giving you a statuesque look which looks perfect when you’re standing still but won’t allow you to move or sit down. Here at Estilo Moda we always encourage all our Brides to have a sit down and prance around as they would on their special day.

10552515_683597938391771_1975663571547286725_n

Size doesn’t matter

Wedding dresses tend to come up one to two sizes smaller than the High street. When the assistant hands you a dress and you see the size do not freak out. This is a common trend in a lot of Wedding dress shops. The size label doesn’t matter, as long as you love the dress. Here at Estilo Moda, we stock various sized dresses but our dresses do not come in sizes, they are made to measure.

10686837_711972898887608_2643296028128232554_n

Wedding dresses do not have that hanger appeal

When you’re shopping on the High street for clothing, a lot of items have that hanger appeal that entices you to grab it and try it on. Unfortunately no matter how beautiful Wedding dresses are the majority of them do not have that appeal. The dresses have a lot of heavy embellishment and long trains which weigh the dress down, making it look less attractive. You don’t truly know what a Wedding dress looks like until you actually try the dress on. When you’re looking through the dresses it you like an element of that dress then just try it on, you never know. Here at Estilo Moda we suggest for our Brides to look through our dresses and pick out any dresses that they wish to try on. But we secretly add in a few others that act like wild cards.

The best time to book your Wedding dress appointment 

The best time to book is a weekday morning, that is if you are available. The majority of Bridal shops will be booked up weeks in advance for weekend appointments. With a weekend appointments they are usually packed in for one after another which means you will be restricted to a set time. Why not book a day off work in advance with your friends and family to go dress shopping on a weekday morning which will ensure you get a far more personalised one to one experience and you will be free to take your time. Here at Estilo Moda we allow our Brides to have a One hour and half appointment slot, this allows them plenty of time to try on dresses and to gain that full experience of being in our gorgeous boutique.

A little boogie goes a long way

After taking all this advice and you feel like you have found ‘the one’, then why not dance like you would on the big day as that is key . Not only will it make up your mind with regards to the fit but it’s sure to put a smile on everyone’s faces. A dance to celebrate you have found the dress of your dreams. You can always get your Bridesmaids to put on dresses and get them to dance with you. Here at Estilo Moda the majority of our Brides feel so at home in our Boutique that they are forever twirling and dancing.

Six Wedding Day Emergency Issues and How to Resolve Them

Its finally your wedding day! Its the one most important day of your life to date and a day that you have planned and prepared for so carefully and meticulously.  No one ever wants problems on any day but to have a problem on your wedding day surely would be the most awful thing that could ever happen to anyone. Here are some emergencies that have happened a little too many times at other weddings and of course, how they can be resolved so that your beautiful day will not be ruined:

Wedding Day Emergency

1. A Sudden Facial Breakout

I consider this the worst of the worst and somehow this always happens every time I have something big planned or a big day coming up.  Sometimes I think just the sheer stress and anxiety of your wedding day causes your skin to break out with unsightly spots.  While it may be easy for me to say just chill out and enjoy it all, I know more often than not, brides worry; so here’s something to help you with spots if they do break out instead.

Wedding Day Emergency Solution:  One great solution is to mix some sea salt with water and apply it to the spot or spots.  This will kill the pimple causing bacteria and dry out the pimple. Alterantively, grab a lemon and rub it over the affected areas.  Lemons act to tighten the skin as well which is always great.

 

2. Stain on Your Wedding Dress

The worst of the worst has happened and somehow a stain has found its way to your wedding dress.  You don’t know how it has happened and you don’t care.  All you want to know is how to fix it as a matter of urgency.  Do not grab the bleach or soap just yet as you may do more damage to your dress.

Wedding Day Emergency Solution:  Grab some cotton wool and apply some hairspray to it and then rub over the stain very gently until you get it out.  If any stains are still visible rub some white talcum powder on the stain

 

3. Make Up Stain

Ok so your aunty Evie decides to give you a kiss but she has always been known to be a clumsy one and her lipstick somehow finds its way to a spot on your dress.  Don’t panic!

Wedding Day Emergency Solution: Grab some club soda and rub them on that same spot and rub a little salt on it to soak up some of the moisture and let it dry.

 

4. Watermark

Personally, I hate watermarks with every fibre of my being.  You go to clean a little stain out of a dress with a bit of water and when it dries, it leaves behind this awful patch on your dress that is unsightly at best.  Other things that cause watermarks are sweat or tears which are almost unavoidable on a wedding day.

Wedding Day Emergency Solution: If you have a hand steamer (and it may be a good idea to get an inexpensive one before the wedding), then just apply some steam over the watermark to lift it out and if your fabric allows, then use an iron over the damp area.  Please note that some fabrics do not take very well to being ironed so find out before hand if you can use an iron on your wedding dress fabric and what heat level.

 

5. Bloating

You may be the type that gets really bloated especially when anxious as you will most likely be on your wedding day.  If that’s the case then don’t worry too much about it.

Wedding Day Emergency Solution:  Sip some lovely peppermint tea and this will calm your nerves as well as an upset tummy and have you enjoying your wedding day in no time at all.

 

6. Scratchy or Irritating Bead-work on Your Dress

Beading is absolutely stunning when applied on a wedding dress but sometimes not the most comfortable.  Many brides have complained about not wanting any beads on the underarms of their dresses and we now only use the round beads with no pointed edges especially for that area of the wedding dress. If; however, you have bought a readymade dress that has come with the beading already, then don’t fear.

Wedding Day Emergency Solution: Get some anti-chaffing cream and rub on the area where you have the most irritation and this should prevent the beads from annoying you too much throughout the day

I really hope this helps someone out there and I look forward to hearing both your stories and your fears for your wedding day. I can sympathise and I can help.

Happy wedding planning and many blessings

Omo xx

A Beautiful Bride, An Estilo Moda White Mermaid Wedding Dress and Four Stunning Teal Taffeta Bridesmaids Dresses

Amanda is another of those lovely brides that I met while I still worked from my garage. She said to me that she always knew she wanted to use our services from the first day we met. She said the fact that I worked from a garage was not a deterrent in any way.

White Mermaid Wedding Dress

I met Amanda two years ago and even though some suppliers worry that two years ahead of a wedding is too early a time to plan, I’ve always been of the premise that we plan alongside the bride and work with her timelines.

Amanda wanted a white mermaid wedding dress that would show off her curves. She had not tried on any dresses at the time she came to see me but she was sure of what she wanted and did not feel the need to go anywhere else.  She showed me a picture of a dress she felt would suit her and asked me to design something using that picture as a guide.  We designed a beautiful white mermaid wedding dress for Amanda which had a beautiful organza strapless sweetheart neckline, asymmetric ruching on the bodice and a tiered multi-layered skirt.  Amanda’s dress had the most stunning bead work created with glass beads, iridescent sequins and white pearls along the neckline and on the edge of each of the tiers on her dress and on the edge of her corset lace up back. To say she loved this stunning white mermaid wedding dress we created for her, would be the understatement of the year. For Amanda’s bridesmaids, we created gorgeous teal blue bridesmaids dresses that were cocktail length.  They had a similar strapless sweetheart neckline as Amanda’s wedding dress and ruching on the bodice but their skirt’s were A-line. Each of them looked so beautiful.  Amanda got married in August 2014 and she had a wonderful day.  Here are some pictures Amanda sent to us of her and her lovely bridesmaids on their big day.

Amanda sent us an email recently and this is what she had to say:

“I had my dresses made by Lisa and the team and I was amazed by the support and the great service that was provided by the team. My dress is exactly what a wanted and was amazing. My bridesmaids dresses all looked great and the girls felt wonderful.
Lots of my guests was amazed at the detail that went in to my dress and i would highly recommend Estilo Moda if you are looking for a dress maker to create your dream dress. I cannot thank you enough for everything you done. You made the whole process a stress free journey and I enjoyed coming to see you all and the progress of my dress it’s just a shame you only get to wear your wedding dress once. Thanks for everything ladies and I wish you all the best in the future of dress making”

I really hope you have enjoyed viewing pictures from Amanda’s wedding and you have been inspired by her gorgeous wedding dress and stunning bridesmaids dresses.

Happy wedding planning and many blessings,

Omo xx

Beautiful Blush Pink Wedding Dress for EM Bride Caroline

Blush Pink Wedding Dress

Caroline and her Mum came to visit us early last year not long after we moved into our beautiful Estilo Moda home and they simply loved the ambience in the boutique.  More than that, they were delighted with the service they received.

Blush Pink Wedding Dress - Estilo Moda Bridal Reviews
Estilo Moda Bride Caroline Evans

Caroline advised me that she really wanted to a wedding dress with a keyhole back but did not feel that she could pull it off.  I advised her that with superior design, anyone can pull off a beautiful keyhole back and she decided to trust us to make this happen for her.

We designed the most beautiful blush pink wedding dress for Caroline that she loved.  She looked simply amazing in her wedding dress. Caroline’s dress had a lacy cap sleeve, sweetheart neckline and a gorgeous keyhole back.  Her ivory lace was lined with the most delicate blush pink duchess satin fabric and the same fabric was used to create a waist band for her.  She had stunning pearl buttons on the closure of the dress and her full skirt flared out into an amazingly gorgeous chapel train.  The effect of seeing Caroline in her blush pink wedding dress was breathtaking.

Caroline’s Mum also sent us a card saying “I was absolutely delighted with the service you provided to my daughter. Her dress looked absolutely gorgeous and you could feel the ripple of excitement when guests saw the dress as she walked down the aisle.  You guided us to choose just the right lace and the pale pink satin set it off perfectly.  Thank you so much for giving our families such lovely memories

I hope you have enjoyed viewing Caroline’s pictures and have been inspired by her beautiful dress.

Lucy’s Dusky Pink Bridesmaids Dresses

We met Lucy at a wedding fair in Milton Keynes and she was excited from day one about our royal blue bridesmaids dress.  She and her bridesmaids had a look at the 50s style dress and agreed that it was definitely within the style ideas that they had been exploring.  They told us that the only downside was that they really wanted long bridesmaids dresses.  Emelie and I looked at each other and laughed as we told them that they could have anything they wanted with us ;-), (within reason as we have truly heard of some completely outrageous ideas for bridal wear).

When the ladies came to see us, Lucy mentioned that they really wanted dusky pink bridesmaids dresses and they had a look through our huge colour swatch of numerous fabrics in over 500 colours. They tried on our best selling blue 50s style lace bridesmaids dress as well as another very popular green chiffon long bridesmaids design and the consensus was that it would be lovely to combine both dresses.  We were delighted to do that for them and here are the results!

Must Have Wedding Dress Shopping Guide

Read an Excerpt from Our Must Have Wedding Dress Shopping Guide

Meet Eliza, who got married a few years ago and still wishes every day that she had worn a different wedding dress. Unfortunately, she’s about 3 years too late now. She still hopes her husband would be open to a marriage blessing and then she can finally wear her dream dress. Long before Steven proposed to Eliza, she knew what her dream wedding dress would look like. She was sure it would be perfect for her and she knew what every last detail would be. She wanted to look like a modern day princess. The bodice would have been reminiscent of Grace Kelly’s wedding dress bodice: lightly beaded lace, high neck but with cap sleeves rather than long sleeves. The skirt would have been a duchess satin fitted mermaid skirt, ruched from the hips to just before the knees and then full flared and pleated from the knees to the hem. The dress would have been completed with pearly buttons at the back to cover the zip and a fully pleated, lightly beaded train. Eliza ended up wearing an all over lace, off shoulder A-line dress with a puddle train. The dress was OK and perhaps, someone else’s dream dress but it was not hers. She settled for this dress because she could not find her dream dress anywhere and the bespoke bridal shops she visited were too expensive. Today, she looks at her wedding pictures with regret because she did not have her high neck lacy bodice and full mermaid skirt; two things she had wanted on her dress since she was 5. Your story does not have to be the same. Ever wondered if the wedding dress you have chosen to wear is your exact perfect dream wedding dress. It is one of the hardest decisions to make and if not made carefully, could spell disaster and regrets. If you have not bought your wedding dress already, here are some top tips and advice to give you some help and inspiration when choosing your wedding dress.

Gorgeous Mikado and Tulle Mermaid Wedding Dress for Carrie

We received this card and a long note from EM Bride Carrie recently and I have to say that it made our day. We try to do our best and can only hope its enough.  That’s what I said to her and its true.  I’m glad she had such an amazing experience with us. 

In her letter, Carrie said “I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything.  Firstly, I want to say thank you for accepting to create the beautiful bridesmaid dress that I found, I was so upset to find out that I wasn’t able to get these beautiful dresses for my bridesmaids, due to being told incorrect info from another shop, but then I found you! During our first meeting, you made me feel so comfortable, and assured me you would be able to create the exact dress I wanted, in various colours, you filled me with confidence and excitement!! All the girls looked so beautiful and the different colours just looked amazing together.

A couple of months down the line, I came to you, again, in despair, as I had had a nightmare with my dream dress. Again, you filled me with hope that you would be able to create my dream dress. I was so so lucky to find you as when we sat down to discuss our options, you ended up designing my very own couture dress, just for me. The design of my dress, included features of two dresses I liked, all combined in one. You listened to what I wanted but also gave me your opinion, which I valued very much.

I couldn’t have been happier with my dress Lisa and thank you wholeheartedly. Can you also pass on thanks to Emily, who made the last minute adjustments for me, on more than one occasion!!!…”

This is the sketch I created of Carrie’s stunning Mikado and Tulle Mermaid Wedding Dress after the first wedding dress consultation that I had with her.
