For brides getting married one of the best moments is the first look. That moment when the person you are going to be spending your life with turns, and catches a glimps of you in ‘The Dress.’ It can be all about that moment for lots of brides and so the dress plays a very important role in what is a dream wedding. So often brides search high and low for their dream dress. Callista Bride have been suppling Plus Size brides around the world with their dream dress for years and the new 2019 collection will not disappoint.
I don’t know about other Bridal Boutique owners, but for me there is nothing like having a sneak peek when we get to the Harrogate Bridal Show this weekend! I just love seeing what the new collections are like and getting a first look of what my brides will be wearing next year! This year I was sent an extra special preview by leading Plus Size designers and award winners Callista Bride.
And I have to say, this collection is possibly the best yet! Designer Michele has created a stunning collection with a bit of sparkle, soft satins and intricate lace detail. But for those of you looking for something a bit different, this is the collection is also for you.
If you want to wear something that is built and designed around the Plus Size body then Callista Bride is the designer for you. I am so pleased that the options for Curvy and Plus Size brides get better and better each season. But if you are looking for ‘The One’, the dress that makes everyone go wow… look no further.
Below is my personal favourite from the new collection. Callista already has the incredible ‘London’ gown in their collection and this season there’s a new version with the same structure and shape but with so much sparkle in the skirt!! This dress is perfect for brides of all shapes and will, no doubt, be one of next seasons most loved designs! You can’t see from this image but this dress just shimmers as you walk and it’s everything I dreamed it would be!
I love visiting Harrogate each year to see what is being showcased and can’t wait to select what gowns are going to be joining my boutique in 2019. If these gowns are anything to go by, I can’t wait to attend over the next few days! It really is the highlight of the year for bridal retail.
Callista is now proudly British owned and I can’t wait to see what 2019 brings. I adore the new models. I am extremely proud to say my bride and friend Amy was chosen to be one of the models and doesn’t she look incredible? Well done Amy! I hope you have enjoyed these sneak peeks and hopefully we will share more from this collection soon.
