Luxury UK wedding Planning

Choosing an Lifestyle marquees marquee for your wedding is one of the biggest steps towards getting every element of your wedding sorted. We can introduce you to the best suppliers in the area, from caterers and florists to furniture hire and entertainment. Or we can take much of the pressure of organisation off your shoulders with our event coordination service, which is designed to ensure you can enjoy your special day without worrying about everything.

But we don’t do wedding dresses…
Many brides will probably have had similar experiences – you either find your dream dress straightaway or it turns into an elusive and exhausting hunt that becomes increasingly desperate. However, all is not lost because we know lots of great people in the wedding industry and The Wedding Secret is the perfect starting point for your search, with its directory of local wedding dress boutiques and designers.

Wedding DressThe team at The Wedding Secret offer this advice: “You’ll first need to decide whether you’d like to select your dress from a collection or commission a dress designer to create a bespoke gown for you. Both options have their pros and cons. Having a dress made just for you is very special and you can guarantee that no one will have ever seen it before. You’ll also end up with more control over how your wedding dress will look without having to search through boutiques. Yet many brides don’t know what kind of dress they’re looking for – they just know it when they see it. So the prospect of giving suggestions for a totally new design can be a little daunting. Whereas if you find your dream dress within a collection, you can try it on straightaway and have that emotional ‘I’ve found it’ moment much sooner.”

Wedding dress designers and boutiques in and around Surrey
Felicity Westmacott designs stunning wedding gowns from her home in Redhill, Surrey. She’ll listen to your ideas and work to your budget to design your perfect dress and, through a number of consultations and fittings, one that fits you exactly. The best thing about going bespoke is that you can have input on every single aspect of your dress, right down to the last stitch – it’s a very personal experience that you will look back on fondly.

Helena Fortley is a fabulous bridal boutique in Caterham. Offering a gorgeous space in which to try on stunning designer wedding dresses, the shop is open six days a week and the experienced staff will listen to your ideas and offer advice and recommendations. Head over to Winchester and you’ll find the equally luxurious Brides of Winchester boutique that contains a plethora of dresses, 95% of which are made in Britain. Once you’ve found a dress that you love, the shop’s made-to-measure service will result in a beautiful fit – you’ll want to wear this gown forever.

No wedding dress is complete without wonderful accessories and amazing shoes. Many dress designers also make bespoke tiaras, handmade veils and more. And most boutiques will stock a range of shoes, veils, jewellery and other accessories for you to try on with your chosen dress.
