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.

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

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…

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.

Here are some more pictures of Carrie and her gorgeous bridesmaids.  Estilo Moda Bridal created all their dresses for the day.

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.

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

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.

6. 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 National Wedding Show: Estilo Moda Bridal at Birmingham NEC

Estilo Moda Bridal was at The National Wedding Show which took place at Birmingham NEC from the 27th of February until the 1st of March 2015. It was our first time at Birmingham and 2nd time at the National wedding Show, the whole experience for us with the wedding industry big leaguers is still new and definitely a learning curve.The National Wedding Show Birmingham NEC - Estilo Moda Bridal

A few weeks before the show, we posted pictures of dresses on Facebook asking our fans which dresses they would like us to take to the show and the response was overwhelming and oh so helpful. Thank you to everyone who helped us to choose the dresses that made it to the show. Your choices were just the right dresses for the show and the brides loved them.

The National Wedding Show - Estilo Moda Bridal Wedding Dresses and Bridesmaids Dresses

We spent many hours planning and putting things together from what our stand would look like to what dresses to take, to how the team would be dressed, which props to use to create a beautiful and welcoming scene for the brides-to-be. We were still positioned close to the Catwalk and VIP Lounge and we had our own exclusive changing room and so we knew we really had to create something amazing for the brides to see. We noticed that we were one of some of the most amazing and popular brands in the wedding industry who were positioned around the catwalk and VIP area and believe me we were honoured.

We set off on Thursday to set up our stand to reflect the welcoming ambience of our beautiful bridal studio in Milton Keynes, using such props as vintage stacked boxes, birdcages, bunting, hanging vintage pom-poms, and other quaint and quirky decorative items. We took our time to set up our signatory flowery wallpaper and we felt the stand looked amazing! Unfortunately, we forgot to take pictures as we wanted to take the pictures the next day when we had brought all the dresses and props to complete the look.

Day 1 of The National Wedding Show: We set out bright and early and got stuck in so much traffic that we thought we would never get there before the brides did. Thank God, the traffic cleared up in time and we got there that morning with a few minutes to spare. When we walked into the hall, we could see from a distance that there was something wrong with our stand. OMG!!! The wallpaper had fallen off. The same wallpaper that we had so painstakingly put up the day before and were so proud of. It reflected our brand perfectly with its flowers, birdcages and so on. We were heartbroken but in true EM fashion, we wiped the shock horror off our faces quickly and got on with it! Due to the wallpaper disaster, our walls were uncharacteristically black but lots of people said, they could see the dresses even more clearly and from a distance. We were also commended by the brides on our matching company blazers! Friday was busy but we knew it was nowhere near as busy as Saturday or Sunday would be but we still had lots of brides leave us with their details and we promised to get in touch with them.

Day 2 of The National Wedding Show: We were so ready for Saturday because we had been advised by a wedding photographer who had been to the National Wedding Show in Birmingham in previous years that there were 8000 brides registered for the Saturday show. The brides came in droves; very eager to find out about us and what we do. Many brides and bridesmaids tried on wedding dresses and bridesmaids dresses and we had chairs ready for Mums and Nans who happily commented on what worked and didn’t work on the dresses for their beloveds. It got to a point where it was so busy, we had to give out appointment slots for brides to come back and try on dresses. It didn’t stop until the end of the day and some brides found their dream dresses there and then and other brides booked appointments to come in and speak to us in our Bridal Studio in Milton Keynes. We spoke to the brides about the features of Estilo Moda Bridal’s Savvy Chic and Jade Bridal collections and they loved the idea of having the option to choose from either a luxury or budget collection to suit your taste and requirements.

Day 3 of The National Wedding Show: If anyone had told us that Sunday would be even busier than Saturday, we would have found it hard to believe but it was. Brides attended the National Wedding Show from all over the country and were delighted to hear that we are well accustomed to working with brides not only countrywide but also worldwide. In fact, some of these brides have already ordered their wedding dresses from us and it’s been only four days since the show. Some brides who had their wedding dresses sketched on the spot could not believe it and said how amazing the experience was for them. We had more brides book appointments to come in and see us right there and a whopping amount of names of brides as well as their contact details who wanted us to send them more information about us.

Throughout the three days, never did the smiles leave our faces, not even when we had to take turns to go for a 10 to 15 minutes lunch breaks on day 3 and not even when our feet felt like they were on fire from standing for such long hours. Many brides and their families commented on what a friendly bunch we were. Someone said it was refreshing. The best part was how much the brides who attended loved our dresses. We had comments like “the back of that dress is to die for”, “I can definitely see myself wearing that dress” and “eek, I think I’ve found my dress” and “what do we have to do to get this dress”.

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:

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

Buy your ticket for The National Wedding Show.
