Harrogate here we come...

 On Monday we will be visiting The Harrogate Bridal Show, the largest bridal trade show in the UK.  It's an exciting task to be choosing new dresses to have in store but as a newcomer to the industry I did not anticipate how difficult it would be.

We are lucky to be stockists of three very successful designers here at The Wedding Room - Stella York, Lillian West and Christina Wu. The brands work well  for our brides and we genuinely believe in the dresses we stock, however... we are on the lookout for something different to enhance our collection.  We have spent a good few hours browsing designers and styles, colours, fabrics and shapes and have just about agreed on what we want.

Mary and I do not always agree on which dresses we want.  The 'Boho' feel, the intricate and detailed fabrics and slightly quirky dresses shout to her while the clean, sleek lines of a fitted crepe number or the simple elegance of a dove satin whisper 'hello' to me.

I guess you will have to watch this space to see which way we go, follow us at  on Instagram or on Facebook to find out !

A Bride's Eye View

Lisa And Sam

Catching Lisa’s eye would not be a difficult task for Sam in their first week of Fresher’s at the University of Nottingham; his tie dye shirt would make anyone look twice! But it paid off for ‘Tie-Dye-Guy’ Sam as he won over the girl of his dreams, Lisa. His charm and romance prevailed at one Bonfire night in Nottingham Forest Recreational Park, as Sam whisked Lisa away from the busy crowds, over to a quiet area next to a grand, old tree. Pointing in awe at the fireworks, Sam distracted his beautiful girlfriend Lisa, and so when she turned back around, he was kneeling in front of her, asking for her hand in marriage.

It was the stunning bride, Lisa, that no one could take their eyes off on her gorgeous wedding day. To truly represent her personality, Lisa chose a retro style, ¾ length, tea dress from The Wedding Room’s Lou Lou Bridal gown collection. The sweet-heart neckline under the soft polka-dot sheer fabric complimented the shape and form of Lisa’s wedding gown. Paired perfectly with her retro themed, ivory shoes, it was a match made in 1960’s heaven!!

 

Sam and Lisa’s wedding worked with a rustic and Disney theme that combined a fun-loving and stylish vibe to truly illustrate the personality of the couple. The Sleeping Flower Company created their flowers, using dried and summer meadow ideas including Lisa’s favourite, daisies. Emanating the rustic style, Lisa wore daisies in her loosely tied up hair and her simple, elegant, mid length veil harmonised impeccably.

Were you nervous the night before your wedding, if so, how did you overcome the nerves?

Not so much the night before. We'd spent a long time setting up the village hall (Sam and me along with my family, the bridal party and some of the groomsmen) and so I was really tired! I started getting really nervous on the ride to the registry office, and was shaking when I got in!

Do you have any top tips on how to get the most out of your photographer?

Make sure to have a good chat with them beforehand. I hate chatting on the phone, but it was definitely worth it! Also be flexible- our photographer wanted us to try a few things we hadn't considered, and they led to some of the prettiest photos- especially a smoke bomb one!

f you could go back to the planning stage of your wedding, what would you do differently and why?

Try to be less stressed, we organised everything in under a year and I definitely panic bought some things we didn't need (including 3kg of hideous tasting sweets!)

What is the best piece of advice you could offer another bride?

Take time to enjoy the day! For me, it all went by so fast- but I really appreciated my bridesmaid taking me into the kitchen, getting me some fish and chips and giving me the chance to just spend some time with the bridal party!

What was your favourite moment of your wedding?

Sam had arranged a surprise visit from Notts Pug Mania, and we had a 'walk by' visit from lots of pugs dressed up in fancy little outfits! I was absolutely over the moon and spent a long time cuddling and fussing some very excited pugs.
