Our real brides blog category is brimming with stories from our very own brides, offering inspiration and insight into their big days. Plus, their top tips for budding brides-to-be.
Whether you're looking for destination wedding inspiration, to incorporate your furry friends into your wedding, or just want to see real brides of different shapes and sizes in your dream dress, be sure to browse our blogs.
When the COVID-19 pandemic stopped Leanne from jetting off to get married in Greece, she decided to re-plan her big day in a week! Read her real bride story on why her wedding day was everything she dreamed of and more.
Emma had to change her wedding date four times due to the pandemic, eventually getting married 5th time lucky on 3rd July 2021. Despite all the planning and re-planning, she remained focussed on marrying her best friend, Brian, throughout all the changes and cites the planning as “worth it!”. Read her real bride story.
Standing at 5ft 8 inches with a full bust and curvy figure to match, our real bride, Leanne, felt anxious about wedding dress shopping and left appointments feeling self-conscious before falling in love with our Ronald Joyce collection and discovering we offer dresses up to a size 30. Read her story.
Celebrating with furry friends
If you're anything like us, your furry friends are a big part of the family and it'd be unquestionable that they'd attend your special day. Sharing this very sentiment are real brides Gemma, Sophie and Tasha who all invited their canine friends to their weddings. We particularly enjoyed reading how Gemma's wedding guests were delighted as her dogs carried the wedding bands down the aisle.
Unable to have her much-loved dogs at her big day, Abbey was determined to incorporate them into the celebrations by adding them to her cake! We love the touching nod to them too! Read all about it: Abbey & Jason.
There's something magical about a winter wedding thanks to the dark nights, twinkling lights, log fires and luxurious fabrics. Tying the knot in December, Karen shares her romantic story of snow falling after her ceremony. Another one of our personal favourites is Rebecca and Samuel's New Year's Eve wedding which saw the childhood sweethearts tie the knot at their local village church before assembling at The Dairy in Waddesdon - a unique blend of grand manor luxury meets rustic barn with oak beams and open fires.
Eloping to exotic destinations provides an element of glamour while streamlining a lot of traditional wedding planning as Jada found when she eloped to Lake Louise in Alberta, Canada to husband Joey. Riding through the Rockies in a helicopter added some adventure before landing by the lake for the most breathtaking backdrop for their nuptials. Read her real bride story and view jaw-dropping photos of the ceremony.
We hope these real brides' stories have inspired you to plan your perfect wedding day.
