Curves in London
Last month my girls and I hit the Big Smoke to attend the awesome London Bridal Week, and you won’t be surprised to hear that we decided to mix business with pleasure. An opportunity to hit the streets of London was just too good an opportunity to miss!
So, we skipped up to the crazy capital the day before the event and I actually got to tick off one my many bucket list must-dos…
I went to my first ever West End show!
Yep, flanked by my fellow Brides With Curves comrades and dressed up to the nines, I indulged in the one and only West End extravaganza, Kinky Boots! All I can say is…WOW. I don’t think I’ve ever cried and laughed so much in all my life. And boy, I’ve never seen such high stilettos!
Suffice to say I am now hooked and can’t wait to see my next West End wonder!
We also managed to squeeze in some good old-fashioned sightseeing, not to mention an exquisite dinner, before heading back to our fab hotel for an early night. Whilst nattering the night away over cocktails was tempting, we all wanted to be on top form for the exhibition the next day!
Now to the business part…
Dubbed the first bridal ‘super-show’ in the UK, London Bridal Fashion Week certainly lived up to expectations. Held at the colossal ExCeL London, we were treated to the most beautiful collections from the world’s leading designers and manufacturers, all presented in jaw-dropping displays that had our mouths watering. The phrase ‘like kids in a candy shop’ springs to mind!
This year seems to be all about the colour blush, which is such a subtle and soft choice for a bridal gown. Perfectly pink without being over-bearing, we’re excited to introduce the new trend to our brides-to-be. And of course, the show was positively bathed in bling, and we at Brides With Curves think you can never have too much sparkle on your wedding day!
This summer, a new collection & new budget range
Having chosen some truly scrumptious designs that will be arriving in the summer, we finished the day off with a glass of prosecco to toast our fabulous new gowns, which we know you will all adore! In particular, we’ve taken on a fantastic new designer called Special Day Bridal, whose collection ‘Beautiful Bride Plus’ boasts colour, intrigue and romance for all shapes and sizes!
We’re also launching a budget range of bridal gowns to cater for everyone that walks through our doors, from £499 right through £2499. We can’t wait to show them off!
So, for all you curvy brides-to-be looking for that perfect wedding gown, why not pop and see us so that we can show off our latest and greatest delectable designs.
We hope to see you soon!
