Big wedding shows, such as the National Wedding Show, will have dedicated designers attend, along with having dresses featured on the catwalk to give you ideas for your own special day. Take note of any particular designers you love and don’t forget to think about flower girl and pageboy outfits at the same time, if you plan on having them included in your wedding ceremony.
Designer Bridesmaid Boutiques
Some brands dedicate themselves to producing bridesmaids dresses only, such as Dessy. Specialist bridesmaid websites will provide you with image galleries so that you can choose your favourite styles and colours, but will then show you a list of stockists local to you. The stockist may be part of a full bridalwear shop, or they may have a boutique shop fo your to visit, nearby. Don’t assume that you can just show up though. Check to see if you need to book an appointment to visit the boutique before you start making any plans.
