Top Wedding Dress Designers
One of the most daunting aspects of finding the perfect wedding dress is navigating all the different designers. Each bridal shop stocks different designers and they don’t showcase the full collection on their website. You don’t want to waste your time booking out time at the bridal shop if you don’t know you are going to like the dresses they have in stock. We recommend looking up the collections with each designer online. Then find a stocklist which is nearby. It’s also worth calling up before hand and getting the price range of the collection you like. Make sure the dresses are in budget before booking an appointment. Here are some wedding dress designers we really recommend you check out!

One of the most inspiring new wedding dress trends for 2021 is the corset dress. This may sound a little daunting to some, but trust us these dresses are beautiful! Our bride Carrie wore the most amazing dress from Pronovias. See more photos from Carrie’s wedding at Colshaw Hall.
Getting married in the winter months presents a challenge when it comes to choosing your wedding dress. Most couples will want their pictures outside where the quality of light will be best. There is something so elegant about long sleeved dresses, lace allows for flashes of skin underneath so the bride doesn’t look swamped by fabric. As lace is such a delicate fabric a long sleeve can also be worn at summer and spring weddings.
We have seen some absolutely stunning satin wedding dresses. The smooth finish looks so elegant and the thicker fabric gives great shape to gowns. One of our favourites is Lauren’s Mikaella Bridal dress from Bride to Be. The shape of this floor length dress suited the bride so perfectly. A touch of detailing added some extra drama to the gown.
Our bride Stephanie’s Pronovias gown from Brides of Chester was absolutely stunning. The high neck and full skirt created a beautiful silhouette. Full skirts don’t have to be puffy 80’s style. Choosing a fabric like satin gave the dress a grown up feel. A princess dress for 2021.
To some choosing a wedding dress with a bit of colour makes them nervous, it’s a tricky thing to get right. Veer too far in the wrong direction and the whole effect can look over the top. Luckily our brides know how to subtly introduce a bit of colour. Kelly chose this gorgeous blush pink dress from Jenny Packman. The colour was muted enough to still look chic.
When else are you going to be able to wear a fishtail gown but your wedding day? Fiona’s dress from Marshmallow Bride exemplifies why this style of dress is so popular. Slim fitting and shoulder skimming with added drama to the skirt. This dress’ delicate details adding a touch of sparkle.
Shorter wedding dresses are perfect for casual weddings. Our bride and groom chose an intimate back garden wedding after they had to postponed their big wedding due to the pandemic. This dress was a fantastic choice, it feels like a wedding dress but is sleek enough to feel comfortable wearing in a smaller group. Reducing the length is a great way to make a wedding dress seem a little less formal and more relaxed.
The style of dress everyone immediately thinks of when you say ‘wedding dress’ has to be the princess dress. Characterised by a slim fitting bodice and a stunning full skirt. It’s not easy wearing this style of wedding dress as they do tend to get in the way a bit. This is where having a great bridesmaids really comes in handy! However a princess gown really does show the feeling of occasion and they are so pretty!
