No Old, No Borrowed, No Blue, Just NEW!

Never mind the old. We don't need anything borrowed. And thanks, but we can live without blue as well. Because today is all about NEW and we are heart-racingly excited to bring you a tempting trio of treats, freshly added to our collection and ready for you start getting semi-hysterical about too! Someone fetch our smelling salts….

You can’t tell, but half an hour has passed since that first paragraph was written. We’ve calmed down, had a cup of tea and cancelled the marriage proposals we impulsively sent to everyone in our email contact list, just so we could get a chance to wear these new designs ourselves. And so without further ado, here are those crucial details of the new fabrics that have got even us, who work with bridal material every day, in a tizzy…

All of the designs are rendered in ivory, which is on one of its pendulous swings back into the top spot that it shares with white. So as well as being the latest styles, they’re also in the most fashionable colour in haute couture right now and will be even more on trend at your wedding.

Ivory Beaded Lace - LourdesIvory Sequinned Lace - PleasanceIvory Hand Beaded Lace - Brianna

Lourdes: Ivory Beaded Lace
Lourdes will mean one of two things to you: either the site of a miracle healing or Madonna’s beautiful daughter. Whichever you’re on the right lines because Lourdes lace is both miraculous AND beautiful, with a combination of bead styles forming a striking foliage-and-flowers pattern. SImply gorgeous.

Pleasance: Ivory Sequinned Lace
For those of you who prefer a non-floral design, Pleasance is a real treat for the eyes. This lace knows nothing of minimalism and instead glorifies in a style reminiscent of the rich, exuberant and luxuriant Art Deco period. Though definitely not minimal, that doesn’t mean without subtlety and the soft sequins ensure glitter without garishness.

Brianna: Ivory Embroidered Lace
A hypnotic cascade makes for a lace design that will have everyone literally unable to take their eyes off you so this is one for the more confident bride who wants to really revel in her special moment. Lovingly embellished by hand, Brianna wedding lace speaks volumes of the delicate, deft craft and care that it is made with.

OK, we stayed calm and made it all the way through the article. Now we’re going to go and look at the fabric again. You know, just to check it’s still there. If we can find it in our hearts to share this good fortune with you, then you can order then new lace designs!

How to Look Heavenly!

If there’s any place to get wedding dress inspiration online, it’s got to be the Rock My Wedding blog,, which is gaining in popularity all the time as more and more people flock to the fabulousness! We are always having a sneaky look to see what’s new on the blog and a very attractive gown recently caught our eye…

As soon as we saw it, we knew that this gown had to be the work of a very talented designer with lots of experience. When we found out that the designer was Lisa Keating, it all clicked into place as Lisa has been a customer of ours for many years. She utilises a careful selection of our fabrics as part of her bespoke dress design service, which is operated from her website at LisaKeating.

A significant proportion of brides-to-be want their dress to be absolutely unique, designed for them and only them. The service offered by experienced designers like Lisa is there to oblige and is a world away from the off-the-peg bridal shop dress experience. Every bride is made to feel confident, beautiful and special as Lisa chats informally with them, blending her own ideas with the customer’s to create an enchanting, unique gown for each.

The gown featured on Rock My Wedding is a perfect example of Lisa’s work and is inspired by the 1920s era, when sophistication was standard. Angel wings were added to give that heavenly feeling and all of the shapes are authentic to the era, having been thoroughly researched by Lisa as preliminary work to making the dress.

For many years, Lisa has been sourcing her fabrics from us and said that she likes our customer service and the family-business feeling we have. Thanks Lisa,; we’re just doing our job and now we’re blushing!

The angel look is an enchanting one and is thus perfect for brides. If this gown has inspired you to add a bit of heaven to the wedding scene, then you can check out our feather trims HERE and enjoy a wide selection guaranteed to deliver that angelic appearance. We would love to see what YOU create so please send your photos to us and you could feature in your own article here in these pages!
