Come with us to Bridal Week...

In the bridal world the arrival of September means only one thing … Harrogate Bridal Week #thehomeofbridal!! What is Bridal Week, I hear you ask? Basically, this is our playground, where we can meet up with friends in the industry, discovery new designers in all things bridal and check out the trends for the upcoming year.

This year was our first one and we have been so excited ever since we came back from London Bridal Week back in March. So whilst everyone else was still fast asleep, Megan came and picked me up and we set off on the 4-hour journey up to Yorkshire.

Once we arrived in beautiful Harrogate, we very classily, quickly done our make-up in the hotel toilets before heading off to Afternoon Tea at the renowned Betty’s Tearooms with our follow bridal boutique owner Ashleigh and Michelle from Ashleigh Richards in Nottingham, who we have been in touch with ever since London Bridal Week.

Feeling recharged and full of cake, we passed round the check, bags on the shoulders and off we headed to Bridal Week. Now we had been told by so many people that Harrogate ‘is the one!’, ‘if you loved London, Harrogate will blow your mind!’ ‘Harrogate is so much bigger.’ and they weren’t lying!! Spread over the whole building in multiple halls, we wandered round in a sea of stain, glitter and tulle getting our bearings.

One of the highlights was the Fashion Show and this one we got to share the lovely Lorraine owner of Olive Blossom in Hampshire. We have spoken to Lorraine on socials since we opened as she opened the same time as us and it was so lovely to actually get to meet her in person. The Royal Hall was the perfect backdrop for the amazing display of dresses, although if we are honest our favourites were still Kelsey Rose and Ellis Bridals!!

Fashion show done it was time to start our meetings with designers, Bridal Week is a great way to see different designers all under the same roof to see who will be a good fit. We pride ourselves on making sure our brides have the best British brands to choose from and we always value your opinions, which is why we always take you all shopping with us on Instagram stories. First day done, we headed across the road to check in at the hotel, loving the fact we didn’t need to travel far, our room even had a view of Bridal Week. All our best business chat comes over dinner and glass of wine so it seemed only right that this is how we ended our first day. And maybe a cheeky cake in bed! 😏

Up and dressed for business, we set off for our second day after booking a last minute appointment with a new potential designer, we had a ram packed day. But first off, it was only right we popped into see the fabulous Studio Ellis team to say hi. After a couple of hours of seeing too many beautiful dresses, our last stop was Nieve Couture to see the lovely Christine to look at all things dresses and veils.

All in all, Bridal Week was a success and full of inspiration, so all we can say is watch this space!!
