Soft glitters and on-trend metallic’s are paired with the softest ivory leathers. Each design is beautifully hand finished with a silver sixpence and the leather sole is embossed with the phrase “Something old, Something new, Something borrowed, Something blue and a silver sixpence in her shoe.”

Brides can also opt to personalise their shoe with over 10 different styles of shoe clips. Brides can pick a design to fit their theme or personality with anything from heart’s adorned in sparkle to fun slogan hearts with “Just Married” and “Happily Ever After”. Charlotte hopes each bride will fall in Love with their wedding shoes and they will be a keepsake of their special day to treasure forever.

We will also have an extensive selection of accessories for you to admire ranging including headpieces and veils from Ivory and Co., Joyce Jackson and Richard Designs.

The Bridesmaids Collection @ASOS

We couldn’t be more for the idea of the current trend for Mismatched Bridesmaids its such a fabulous way to allow your girls to have more say on their outfits, feel more comfortable on the day and express their own personality and sense of style no matter how diverse your bridal party may be. Let’s be honest we don’t alway’s like the same designs and gone are the day’s where bridesmaids were unflattering, now you can have beautiful bridesmaid gowns that you and your bridesmaids will still love in years to come. From floral beauties to glamorous full length sequins and traditional chiffon cuties!


Hayley Paige Occasions @JimHjlem

SOME KEY TIPS  You could opt to select one colour or fabric for your girls and then allow them to all choose a style that they feel comfortable and look good in. Alternatively you can choose a style and a few complementing colours and let them pick their colour. Lastly you could take an even more modern approach and by choosing complementing colours and a short list of styles and let them choose themselves which gives a diverse yet well blended look.

With so many looks out there it’s all about getting started so grab your girls together and start surfing the internet for some inspiration, if you’re anything like us then we sure do know our way around ASOS!

To help you out we have added a link to our Pinterest page below for a round up of some of our favourite bridesmaid styles.

Have fun girls xx

Here Come the Girls over on our Pinterest

Maggie Sottero New Lisette Collection

Maggie Sottero First Look at the Lisette Collection 

Saturday 21st May – Sunday 22nd May 2016

We are holding an exclusive two-day event to showcase the beautiful brand new collections from Maggie Sottero and Sottero and Midgley. These collections are hot of the runway and this event will be one of the first chances for brides to see these stunning new collections. Two very different collections both with incredible designs and beautiful detailing, we can’t wait to show you these amazing dresses, here’s a little bit about each of the collections heading to the boutique …

Maggie Sottero Lisette Collection 

Our Lisette Collection combines ethereal elegance and modern romance, enchanting today’s classic bride. From ultra-feminine silhouettes embellished with artistically intricate beading to exquisite lace, soft with organic details. Illusion lace delicately graces necklines both front and back, offering a subtle sexiness to timeless designs. Buttons cascade from waist to hem adding romantic and captivating details, while asymmetric layers of weightless tulle and organza introduce volume with flattering dimension. A stunning addition to the line, bodysuits in tulle and lace, offer a second wedding day look, transitioning beautifully from ceremony to reception. Presented in pale blush, soft champagne, and rich ivory, the Lisette Collection offers a full array of romantic hues along with decadent designs appealing to the traditional bride.



Sottero and Midgley Amélie Collection

Inspired by the chic, confident bride, the Amélie Collection focuses on provocative V-necklines and breathtaking open backs paired with lavish fabrics and elaborate beading. Mikado is unadorned or exquisitely embellished with lace, early-weightless organza is soft and airy, and brocade emerges as a luxurious avant-garde alternative to more traditional fabrics. Two-piece styles fresh off the bridal runway are perfect for fashion-forward brides seeking a bold wedding day look. Variety abounds as arms are covered with long illusion lace sleeves while other styles flaunt seductively bare shoulders. Skirts range from sexy and fitted to artistically layered, boasting volume and grandeur. Each dress is uniquely designed to exude glamour, extravagance, and femininity for today’s modern bride.
