As we head full steam ahead into the New Year here at Vicki’s Bridal Boutique, Tenterden, Kent, we are bringing you some of our Top Bridal gowns from across our collection in the boutique. And this week, it's our Top 5 Nieve Couture Bridal Gowns.

So in no particular order, let's go…

So, we are kick-starting with Carmen, the perfect bridal gown for a bride looking for that classic chic vibe for her big day. A stunning fit and flare, with a structured visible boned corset top, softened by a gorgeous cowl neck and chiffon overlay. The decorative lace up back gives a gentle nod to current trends. Carmen by Nieve Couture is perfect for adding your stamp to her with all the bridal accessories, whether that be a belt, overtop or even an over skirt for that breathtaking changeable ceremony to party look.

Next up, we have the ultimate garden party princess vibe with Matilda. With her floral botanical embroidery bodice which tapers down into a full layered organza skirt finished with a horse hair trim and statement train, she oozes femininity. The perfect dress for a bride wanting to live her real life fairytale.

Violet is a stunning bridal gown, that is ideal for a bride that is torn between the figure hugging fit and flare or a more princess bridal look. With a gorgeous fitted lace underdress, layered with a tulle over skirt to soften the shape. We love the botanical lace illusion bodice with delicate leaf detail stamps.

Now for another classic in Sloane. This gorgeous soft ivory satin gown follows perfectly with every move you will make. She has a beautiful drape bow that falls down the back of the train, framing the cover button details. The deep v-neck with the wide waist band, that frames the female figure perfectly. A true bridal classic.

Last but not least, a firm favourite at Vicki’s Bridal Boutique, Demi. She has been with us from the start, and we just love her, with her champagne under skirt. The soft pinky tone with beautiful ivory floral lace makes her perfect for a spring/summer wedding. We just love the small details scattered over her, from her delicate beaded straps, covered buttons and iridescent sequins, adding a hint of subtle sparkle.

Nieve Couture offer a little something for every bride, whether they are looking for clean classic to soft romance. To check out the rest of our Nieve Couture collection at Vicki’s Bridal Boutique, head over to our website. 

A new year means only one thing the new collection by Ellis Bridals has arrived at Vicki’s Bridal Boutique. And this year is our most exciting yet! 

With each new collection we buy, we are able to really consider what our Vicki’s brides are searching for in their wedding dress. Working closely with Grace up at the Ellis Studios back in August, we have created a collection pulling together the sleekness of Ellis and the softness that our Vicki’s Bride love. We really put so much thought into each and every collection we buy for Vicki’s, and hopefully you can see that in the wedding dresses we have in the boutique. So here are the gorgeous girls joining the boutique this season. 

First up, introducing Camilla by Ellis Bridals, combining opulence and romance effortlessly. This beautiful bridal gown is scattered with delicate 3D botanical lace, adding a touch of romance and femininity. However, the square neckline and back detail adds a modern twist to all those romantic details.

Here at Vicki’s Bridal Boutique we have the pleasure of working closely with the lovely Nikki and Tracy at The Wedding Dress Surgeons. As our recommended seamstresses, they are the ladies we trust to help our brides on the next part of their wedding dress journey.

So let's talk bridal seamstress fittings...

Every Wednesday, we hand Vicki’s Bridal Boutique in Tenterden over to The Wedding Dress Surgeons to work their magic to our Vicki’s brides wedding gowns, to create the perfect fit. If you choose to work with The Wedding Dress Surgeons, you will first meet them 12 weeks before your big day. In this first fitting, they will look at what needs to be done and work with you to make sure you are happy with how the dress fits. If you have decided on any design changes, such as adding sleeves, removing layers, etc, they will also come up with the action plan. 

Four weeks later and it’s now 8 weeks till your big day. Eek!!  Nikki and Tracy have been busy working away making all the agreed tweaks, and it is now time to get your dress back on! At this fitting, they will make sure you are happy with all the changes so far. It’s quite common at this stage to actually be ready to take her home, however if there are still a couple of bits to work through that is absolutely fine, this is what the third fitting is there for.

By the time you get to your third fitting, your wedding is only 4 weeks away, and she will be ready for your big day. Once Nikki and Tracy have finished with your gorgeous gown, they will make sure she is pressed and steamed ready to go. In your finial fitting, it is a good idea to bring someone with you that will help you get dressed on the day, so Nikki or Tracy can show you the best way to get you in the wedding dress and how to do the bustle if you have decided to go for one. Alternatively, we will be happy to film it for you. With your beautiful bridal gown perfectly altered just for you...the next time you put her back on, you will be about to say 'I Do'!!

We hope this has given you a little insight in what to expect when it comes to your seamstress fitting. Look out on our socials for more ‘did you knows’, tips and tricks from us at Vicki’s Bridal Boutique and The Wedding Dress Surgeons.
