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.

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

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

 

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

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.

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.

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.

I hope you have been inspired by some of these tips. While we have not been able to go over every single aspect of your wedding, I’m sure these would suffice in providing you with some more ideas for planning an amazing Christmas Wedding.

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.

1482789_574994355918797_1142682646_n

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.

10410744_719497978135100_5720619630466473902_n

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
