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!
Last week we had the chance of a close up look at some of the gowns from designer, Lyn Ashworth, who lives and works right here in Kent. Lyn designs from her home studio overlooking the Kent countryside and says ” People often ask where I get the inspiration for my dresses. The answer is – all around me. I wake up in the morning, look out of the window and think I must be the luckiest person alive.” We know exactly what she means.
Take a look at just some of our favourite dresses from her latest collection.
Local stockists include Froufrou Bridal in Tunbridge Wells, Abigail Brides in Headcorn and Fross Collections in Uckfield.
This week we have been looking at hidden gem wedding venues which we will be sharing with you over the next week. We’ve also been working hard on our new website which will be ready to launch in June. We’re super excited about it and can’t wait to share it with everyone.
We also had a little field trip yesterday to the Pantiles Food Festival in Tunbridge Wells. It’s always a great place to find lovely, talented and food obsessed people who cater for weddings in the county.
We kicked off on Monday with news of a bridal gown sale at Froufrou Bridal Boutique which is on next month and includes discounted dresses from famous designer names (see a few of the dresses available below)
We also shared with you two fantastic Kent suppliers. Florist in the Forest was up first with owner Katherine Craft, who showed us her beautiful and stunning designs. Katherine is a talented lady as she not only creates her designs but also grows her own flowers at her studio and cutting garden in Broadwater Forest. Then we met Jennie Bishop of Little Boutique Bakery where we got to see just some of her fantastic wedding cakes. Jennie told us “we are known for our elegant and unique designs and attention to detail, we only take on a limited number of commissions per week so we can ensure the utmost quality and time required to complete orders.” These are cake and flower designs you won’t want to miss out on!
The final part of our series about Planning a Vintage Wedding was all about the dress and how to find it. Whether you want a true vintage gown or are going for vintage styled one we shared our favourites from a range of designers and online boutiques.
Then to round off the week we brought you five of the best wedding pumps so you could save your feet but still look gorgeous!
That’s it from us so Happy Sunday everyone.
