Bridal lingerie is no ordinary lingerie, but specially designed to be worn under wedding dresses. The right bridal lingerie accentuates and enhances the curves of the bride’s body, optimizing the fit and look of the dress, which is designed to be the ‘perfect’ size. The choice of the wedding dress therefore starts with the right lingerie.

GU1385_002_1.jpg

Good bridal lingerie must meet a number of specific criteria and technical requirements. The special technical features of top brand Poirier provide the perfect fit as a result. These unique features have differentiated Poirier from most other bridal lingerie brands worldwide for more than 25 years.

MO780-MO781_002_1.jpg

We have new designer labels from Chloe, Poirier and Penrose among others whose expertise in creating bridal lingerie makes for comfortable and figure hugging as well as sensual and sexy Lingerie.

Chloe Lingerie

A special occasion like a wedding deserves exclusive lingerie. Penrose, the Italian answer to bridal lingerie, caters to this special niche. This high-quality bridal lingerie is sold exclusively by bridal fashion specialists.

The Penrose collection was developed in close collaboration with leading designers who understand the market better than anyone.

Brides Beware: Bridal Dress Buying

Brides to Be: Brides Beware

We see at lot of bride as you can imagine and increasingly we see brides who should be entering into a really happy and positive place but come to us with horror stories about wedding dress buying and boutiques lack of knowledge and care.

When planning for your wedding one of the most important aspects is the purchase of your wedding dress and here at Mia Sposa Bridal Boutique we would like to offer some advice on purchasing your bridal gown.

We increasingly have brides that are let down from various sources when looking for their dream wedding dress.

Joy’s Advice: Do your research make sure wherever you buy your wedding gown or anything else related to your wedding that everything is as should be – If it looks to good to be true it usually is.

Internet Dresses

Brides see bargain designer bridal gowns on the internet but rarely get what they thought was a bargain

While online shopping is always risky, buying a wedding dress online may be biggest gamble of them all. See below:-

24AC949900000578-2909093-image-a-9_142119632734724AC931500000578-2909093-Left_What_the_bride_expected_Right_What_arrived_on_the_doorstep_-m-3_1421228496745

Still, many brides-to-be will scour the internet in search of tempting discounts or convincing counterfeit gowns. But if you dare to order that dream dress online, you may well receive a truly unrecognizable garment in your mailbox — not to mention, it probably comes from a sweat shop.

Joy’s Advice: Trying to save a few pounds buying online can backfire big time and cost you more in the long run when your dream wedding dress fails to materialise and you have a stressful time to try and hunt down a wedding gown last minute. Not to be advised.

I advise trying to stick to a budget and if you spend a little more on the gown then try and save elsewhere in your wedding budget.

Boutiques

When brides to be are looking to shop for your dream wedding dress, an important consideration where are you going to go. Always choose an established boutique that has a good reputation.

DSC_7009

We have had brides recently who have gone to unknown stores to be completely let down by lack of knowledge, leading to mistakes in ordering, sizing, and even styling.

Buying a bridal gown that is completely right for you is essential and knowledgable consultants are a must as this cuts out errors and mistakes and they will help you choose the perfect shape for you and assist in styling.

Another problem we come across is some shops open on a shoestring budget, these are easy to spot and are to be avoided at all costs, the chances of you never getting your gown a completely real as many of these shops close soon after opening and brides are left with no bridal gown and lost money which is usually non recoverable.

DSC_7042

Some bridal stores and so called boutiques offer no real service at all, again doing some homework before going to any boutiques should help cut down on this,

Joy’s Advice: Again do your homework, only go to stores with good reputations, Listen to sales consultants to see if they have knowledge with in the bridal industry.

Also look for details such as how will your dress be altered, Do they have in house seamstress or are you taking a risk by getting a freelance alterations service in which the boutique then washes its hands of any problems. Brides Beware

 

Timescales

Brides are leaving buying their wedding gowns to the very last minute, this can be a massive mistake.

Leave plenty of time to buy your wedding gown. Ideally you should think about purchasing your wedding gown at least 9 to 12 months before the big day. This allows time for your gown to be made( remember your gown especially made for you) and allows time for it to go into production.

appointment_header

Lead time from manufacturers is longer than previously due to complexity of gowns as well as other issues. Also you will need to allow time for your gown to be altered to your exact body measurements. Leaving this until the last minute is a mistake as it puts stress on you the bride and the boutique too.

Joy’s Advice: Allow plenty of time to order you wedding dress ideally around 12 months, this will allow time for your gown to be made and delivered to the store and allows adequate time for alterations on your dress if they are required.

Buying your Gown

When you begin shopping for your bridal gown it is a good idea to select a few boutiques rather than trying to go around them all, Wedding Dress shopping can be daunting and we find that some brides who shop till they drop become confused and can’t remember what dress they saw in what boutique, stay focussed and narrow your options before going to a boutique this will save on what we call bridal burnout.

Joy’s Advice: Another thing we see is brides come with an army of people who all have differing opinions that also adds to the confusion to the bride.

My advice is when shopping for your gown just have a few trusted confidants to help support you in your quest for the perfect wedding gown.

 

And Finally

Buying your bridal gown should be a memorable and pleasurable experience not one full of anguish and pain, Don’t be tempted by going for the cheapest options as this inevitably leads to problems and spending more in the long run.

Joy Says:

Choose where to get your gown carefully as it is a really important decision and making the right choices can save you heartache nearer your wedding day.

New Designer: Ellis Bridal Collection 2015

Ellis Bridal 2015 Rose Collection

Here at Mia Sposa in Newcastle, we are always adding new lines to our exciting ranges of bridal wear and we are pleased to announce we have just taken delivery of our latest fantastic luxurious wedding brand Ellis Bridal and we have wedding dresses from their 2015 Rose Collection.

Ellis_logo

Here is a little teaser of what Ellis is all about:

Established in 1912, Ellis Bridals is a family run business born in London. An early innovator in the bridalwear industry, the brand’s uniquely handcrafted approach to design changed the landscape of bridal couture. Available in over 250 independent bridal boutiques internationally, Ellis Bridals is one of the UK’s premium bridalwear brands, renowned for premium fabrics, contemporary design and attentive customer service.

ellis_1

Founding member Ada Ellis originally created bespoke designs from her London studio to cater for her fashionable friends, and on a bright January day in 1910 she walked down the aisle wearing the first Ellis wedding dress.

ellis_2

Ada already held an accomplished reputation as a designer and seamstress for the London aristocracy of the day, but with her wedding dress she truly began to carve her niche. Demand grew as brides across England clamoured for an original Ellis creation. Her business was born, and Ada moved to new, bigger premises. By the 1960s she had opened her first central London showroom with an extravagant runway show, cementing Ellis as a househould name. Through the 1980’s the brand celebrated numerous industry and retailer awards acknowledging Ellis’s pioneering vision for leading trends in bridalwear.

ellis_3

This rich heritage constantly informs the Ellis practice for meticulous attention to detail. With hand stitching, beading and placing at every level of design, each design is truly considered to ensure each piece is timeless. 2012 saw the centenary year of the brand with a collection celebrating the artisan craftsmanship and delicate detailing that is Ellis’s signature.

ELLIS PROMISE

Ellis Bridals are dedicated to creating dresses to make every bride feel enchanted head to toe.

We believe each wedding dress should feel unique to each bride, with our design team working tirelessly to ensure that each dress fits like it was designed especially for you.

Here are the wedding gowns that adorn our boutique especially for you!

Style: 11129

Beautiful soft chiifon flowing wedding dress with broch on waist available in diamond white.

11423_ellis_bridal_1

Style: 11423

Exquisitely crafted in fine and corded lace, this fishtail style features a hand-embellished sweeping hem decorated with luxe sequins and hand-beaded detail. A flattering sweetheart neckline compliments the striking silhouette.

Joy Says: Sweetheart neckline on this strapless dress is adorned with beading – and the pleating on the fabric front and back gives amazing definition – stunning shape we love this!.

11433_ellis_bridal_1

Style: 11433

This fluted dress is exquisitely crafted from hand-placed fine & guipure lace. Showcase the elegant low back and sheer shoulder detail with an updo.

12215_ellis_bridal_1

Style: 12215

Romantic tulle, sparkle tulle and satin ballgown. Thoughtfully layered tulle with sequin give this skirt a subtle sparkle. Bodice hand-embroidered with precious stones and beading.

Joy Says: Amazing ball gown shape with detail on the skirt that really makes this dress stand out. We love the exquisite hand beaded bodice.

15160_ellis_bridal_1

Style: 15160

This dreamy 1920’s inspired wedding dress features a softly fluted silhouette in tulle and sequin. Soft waist detail comes in the form of an ivory satin ribbon. Hand finished with shimmering sequins over barely there tulle, this bridal dress is a subtle statement in intricate embellishment..
