Getting To Know Iconic Bride
Here at Save the Date Magazine, we know that finding your dream wedding dress is one of the most exciting parts of planning your special day. It͛ is the moment you͛’ve always dreamed of, and we bet you can͛t wait to find ‘The One’. Nestled in the heart of Sherwood Forest, you͛’ll find Iconic Bride, a boutique with a range of beautiful gowns for your big day. Let͛’s find out a little more about this wonderful bridal boutique in Nottinghamshire…
What can brides expect from an Iconic Bride experience?
When you visit us you can expect to have exclusive-use of our beautiful boutique with a dedicated style consultant on hand to wait on you and your bridal party, ensuring you all have a first class experience. We are a mother and daughter team that takes pride in offering a thoughtful and eclectic collection of finest bridal gowns and accessories ensuring our brides are both standout and stylish.
Which Bridal Designers do you currently stock at Iconic Bride?
We stock Sophia Tolli, WattersWtoo, Catherine Parry, Nicola Anne and TwoBirds Bridesmaids. We are also excited to exclusively announce that from October onwards, we will be stocking Caroline Castigliano. Accessories are from Ivory and Co, Richard Designs and Benjamin Adams Bridal Shoes.
Which is the most popular style of gown for 2017?
We have definitely seen a shift towards A line styles. Cut-out back details are still incredibly in fashion and they look so stunning on it is hardly surprising brides are coveting such looks. We secretly like a “Pippa bum” here at Iconic Bride and still love the fitted styles which accentuate the female figure.
What are your top tips for brides when shopping for their dress?
Enjoy it! Seems a simple thing but we’ve seen so many brides either nervous or unsure that they can be at risk of missing out on the most important thing of being a bride and that is to enjoy the experience! Limit the number of people you bring as it can be overwhelming when so many people have an opinion about what you should or shouldn’t wear for your special day. We advise to keep to those you trust and have a maximum of 2-3 people at your appointment. Also be open to the idea that what you thought you wanted may not turn out to be your dream dress. Our last tip would be to go with your gut. Your wedding dress or “lady” as we affectionately call ours, will make herself known to you. There can be a big pressure on brides today to have the “moment” where everyone should be crying and overcome with emotion and brides can feel unsure and even cheated if they don͛t have that response. We are here to reassure you that whilst some brides can have this reaction to finding their dress most don’t and that’s ok. Your lady will let you know in her own way she is “your one” as she will be the one that will stick in your mind and you can͛t stop thinking about her no matter how many gowns you try.
Do you have a favourite celebrity wedding, or a celebrity wedding dress that you admire?
When coming up with our name Iconic Bride and our strap-line of ‘creating a bride people will remember͛’ we took our inspiration from celebrity and royal weddings. For a beach wedding we absolutely loved Megan Fox’s Armani Prive gown that she wore back in 2010 and it is still on style point today. However top marks to celebrity heiress Nicky Hilton on her custom made Maison Valentino gown, with the illusion high neck and laser cut floral lace.
Do you have any upcoming trunk shows for brides to visit?
Of course! We love trunk show weekends. They provide us with the ideal excuse to get out the bubbly and cupcakes, bring in lots of styles from a chosen design and really go to town helping brides create their perfect bridal look. Our next confirmed Trunk Show is for the show-stopping collection from WattersWtoo on Saturday 5th & Sunday 6th August 2017. We are also holding a Sophia Tolli Trunk Show on Saturday 23rd & Sunday 24th September 2017. Plus, keep your eyes peeled for the October Launch of Caroline Catigliano. It͛s always worth keeping watch of our Facebook and website though as we always like to add special event dates at the last minute too.
Tell us a little more about your upcoming video advert?
We really wanted to reach out and engage our Iconic Brides both current and future to share our commitment as a bridal retailer. We wanted to show that our mission is to provide brides with the ultimate luxurious bridal experience which focusses on quality, personalisation and style at its core. Being visible to our bride is very important to us and we hope that brides can feel reassured through our advert that approachability, honesty and integrity are of utmost importance. We are super excited about its launch (to be announced soon) and hope our brides like it.
