Dress of the Month ~ June 2014

My favourite dress of the moment is the absolutely beautiful Tabitha by Charlotte Balbier!

Charlotte Balbier 'Tabitha' fitted lace gown with beautiful beadwork and a V neckline.

A gorgeous fitted lace gown with beautiful beadwork and a V neckline. Tabitha is one of Charlotte’s ‘Hall of Fame’ dresses, which means she is a bridal best seller. Charlotte designed this beautiful dress a few years ago and brides continue to love it!

Since we haven’t been stocking Charlotte’s collection for very long Tabitha is brand new to us, but she was definitely one of the dresses that were on our ‘must have’ list when we visited Charlotte’s showroom last year.

I love everything about this dress but mostly how soft and light the lace is! So many of our lace gowns are much heavier and sometimes even a little bulky, but this dress is the complete opposite and really means it could be the perfect option for a wedding abroad!

Dress of the Month ~ April 2014

My favourite dress of the moment is the adorable ‘Sweetpea’ by Charlotte Balbier. There are many different reasons why this dress has caught my attention: the gorgeous lace fabric, the scalloped hem, the beautiful broad cap sleeves and the fabulous closed in back.  All these features combine to make a stunning dress.  However, but it’s the length that really makes it fabulous!

Slightly shorter than tea length, this dress is super cute and perfect for a 1950s themed wedding. It looks even cuter when worn with a petticoat to emphasise the shape, and I love to see it worn with round toed shoes and a super short full veil. I just love her and I think a lot of our brides do too – shes our window display at the minute and I keep having to wreck the display to get it out!

Dress of the Month ~ March 2014

Right now I am slightly obsessed with our beautiful Boadicea gown from Charlotte Balbier! This is definitely not a typical wedding dress – this dress is super glamorous, sophisticated and very very sexy.

Boadacea

 

She features a very pretty sheer lace bateau neckline which lots of our brides are loving right now.  However, instead of being a full lace look this gown features a fluid and luxurious satin skirt.

She is simply beautiful. But the most surprising part of this dress is the stunning sheer lace back! It makes a statement and is definitely a fabulous choice for a confident bride.

Dress of the Month ~ February 2014

This month’s dress might just be my favourite dress… ever! Sarah, by Charlotte Balbier, is the only dress I’ve ever actually hugged.  It is THAT pretty.

Sarah Wedding Dress, Charlotte Balbier

When we visited Charlotte’s showroom back in summer 2013 this gorgeous dress kept grabbing my attention from right across the room, we just had to buy her. Now that she has arrived into our boutique I think she is my ideal wedding dress. She combines so many elements of gorgeous detail and design that she is just about perfect!

Spotted tulle, textured flowers and lace applique sounds like it should be too much on one dress but I promise you that the result is soft, subtle and delightful.

The silhouette is a super flattering dropped waist ballgown with a shallow sweetheart neckline and a fabulous corseted bodice.

A true princess dress. I love her!

Dress of the Month – August 2013

This stunning dress has only been with us a few weeks, but she has fast become one of my all time favourite wedding dresses! Her name is Flora and she is the cutest dress ever!

A gorgeous soft chiffon gown with an a-line silhouette, the uniqueness of this dress is all in the neckline! High necked, capped at the shoulders with the stunning feature of an embellished peter pan collar, this gown makes a really unique statement.

I’ve only seen her on a few girls so far but I really like how flattering it is on more petite frames, although I can imagine it working really well on taller girls too.

The gown is gathered in towards the waist so will flatter most body types, and the soft a-line of the skirt skims gently over a tummy and hips.

I can’t wait to see this worn at a real wedding!
