Froufrou Bridal Boutique in Tunbridge Wells will be spoiling you this month with some stunning designer days from across the pond.
Their All American March Trunk Show weekends kick off on the 15th with designer, Ivy & Aster, where’ll you get the chance to take a look at their entire 2013 collection as well as new Bridesmaid gowns. Helena from Froufrou says “these gowns are romantic and whimsical and definitely not to be missed, especially for Brides who know they definitely want an Ivy & Aster gown.”
Then on the weekend of 23rd March, designer Claire La Faye Bridal, will showcase beautiful, creative and stylish designs. They are usually only available in the USA so Helena says “if you are a fashion forward bride that dreams of something beautiful and alternative to the traditional you’ll love these really unforgettable and feminine gowns”.
During March the boutique are also introducing new Bridesmaids ranges including a collection from Twobirds Bridesmaids – which we love as they suit just about any Bridesmaid with lots of choice of colour and style.
You can secure your Trunk Show appointment with a fully redeemable £15.00 deposit but before you do Helena recommends “if you are at the beginning of your search though and not looking to buy just yet, do give us a ring us to make an alternative appointment to come in and see us“.
Have fun and make your appointment asap as we know these popular shows get booked up super quick!
Myself and Joanne were majorly excited when we happily skipped off to take a look around the Tunbridge Wells regency townhouse that is the gorgeous setting for bridal boutique, Isabella Grace. With a recent expansion the boutique is welcoming more brides than ever through their very elegant front door.
Looking through the front window you get just a tantalising peek of the gorgeousness thats waiting for you inside. Owner, Rebecca Doyle, is no stranger to weddings as she also runs multi-award winning bridal accessory brand, Chez Bec, but had always dreamed of opening her own boutique.
She told us “It is only 14 months since we opened Isabella Grace and it is hard to believe how far our and our brides’ expectations have been exceeded. We literally tripled in size within a year of opening and now have four floors with three private fitting suites, two showrooms and a separate alterations suite.
“I was delighted when one of our brides coined the phrase “The Isabella Grace Experience” to express how happy she had been with the service – it was the ultimate shopping experience for her and this was our aim from the very start. Choosing the dress you wear on your wedding day is a girl’s most important shopping decision – we not only go the extra mile, we outstrip it!
“Our brides very much become part of the Isabella Grace family and they leave hugging and kissing us – some even in tears when their Isabella Grace experience comes to an end!”
Collections include Paloma Blanca, So Sassi, LM by Lusan Mangonus, Enzoani, Nicola Anne, Sophia Tolli, Martina Liana and Charlotte Balbier with prices ranging from £1000 to £2,500.
We loved the ambiance, atmosphere and luxurious feel of Isabella Grace that really makes this boutique stand out from the crowd. But Brides nearly always say its the exceptional quality of customer service that means they would recommend this boutique time and time again.
Go take a look – you won’t be disappointed!
