Finding the perfect wedding dress is a momentous occasion, and the team at EB Bridal in Alnwick is here to help you navigate the world of tulle, lace, and satin with confidence! Hannah shared with me some expert tips and insights to make your dress shopping experience enjoyable and stress-free.

What’s Hot on the Bridal Runway?

This season, soft A-line gowns are a top pick, offering a blend of comfort and timeless elegance. The Brides this year are gravitating towards a mix of classic satin and romantic floral details.

Jumpsuits & Dress Options:

In bridesmaid, yes! we just expanded our range and our multiway bridesmaid dress now comes in a jumpsuit option. Bridal- watch this space!

Bridesmaid Bliss:

When choosing bridesmaid dresses, consider your colour scheme and how your bridesmaids feel in different styles. EB Bridal offers the popular multiway dress, which comes in a variety of colors and can be styled in numerous ways to flatter all body types. EB Bridal sell the multi way dresses. We sell two sizes which also comes with and without tulle. The multiway dress can be transformed into seventy plus ways and is available in twenty eight different colours.

Finding Your Perfect Match:

The most important advice? Stay open-minded! Trying on different styles will help you discover what flatters your figure and makes you feel beautiful. EB Bridal’s consultants are there to guide you through the process, offering expert advice and support.

Embrace Your Confidence:

There’s no such thing as “too much cleavage” at EB Bridal. It’s all about what makes you feel comfortable and confident. They offer dresses with built-in support and can work with a seamstress to ensure a perfect fit.

Tips for Curvy Brides:

Finding the right support and a good seamstress! Every dress has built in support with boning and cups. However when bigger chested and depending on the dress style you may need to add extra support. More boning and different cups, even a corset back. A good seamstress should never be letting you leave your fittings if you are having to pull at your dress throughout the day.  

Making a Grand Entrance:

If you’re looking to make a dramatic statement, the Deidra by Justin Alexander with its detachable overskirt is a show-stopper!

Expert Guidance:

Absolutely! EB Bridal consultations provide valuable tips and guidance to help you find your dream dress. They’ll also help you navigate the world of online inspiration, reminding you that real-life photos are often a better representation of how a dress might look on you. In todays world you have to watch out for hidden AI tricks. Stay open minded what you see online is often far from the reality.

Budget-Friendly Finds:

Sample sales are a great option for finding designer dresses at a fraction of the cost. Be realistic about your budget and consider compromising on certain details, like having a multi-look dress, to find a beautiful gown that fits your financial goals.

Color Trends:

For summer 2024 and 2025, pastel pinks and purples are making a splash. If you’re planning a fall wedding, deep autumnal colors like rust and steel blue are perfect choices.

Planning Your Purchase:

Ideally, order your dress twelve months in advance to allow enough time for fabrication and fittings. It takes six to seven months for the dress to be made, then eight weeks for fittings. It will require a minimum of three appointments for your alterations.  EB Bridal can also accommodate rush orders with a 4-month turnaround. But ideal if you are able relax and allow plenty of time for your dress.

A Glimpse into 2025:

Get ready for a floral explosion! As seen at the MET Gala this year. Think 3D appliques, sewn-on embellishments, and a burst of color on the bridal runway.

Etiquette Faux Pas:

Do not steam your dress the day of the wedding. When you arrive the night before get the dress out of the bag and let it drop. If it does need steamed it should be done day before or as early in the day as possible so it has time to dry.

Preparing for Your Appointment:

Keep an open mind and bring only your closest confidantes who will offer honest and supportive feedback. Limit yourself to three bridal appointments to avoid feeling overwhelmed. Arrive feeling confident and beautiful – if that means getting your hair and makeup done, go for it!

Feeling the Stress?

Don’t hesitate to let the bridal consultant know if you’re feeling overwhelmed. The team at EB Bridal understands the pressure and is dedicated to making your dress shopping experience enjoyable and stress-free. They’ll take the time to get to know you and explain everything without any pressure to buy.
