The Vintage Bride Designer Sale

The Vintage Bride Designer Sale

Kate Moss’s vintage-style wedding seems like a distant memory but countless high profile brides-to-be opt for timeless and classic for their big day. And here at Lawfully Chic we are big believers in cherishing vintage clothing.

With the wedding season on the horizon it may be worth a visit to The Vintage Bride Designer Sale, which has been described as “officially the best bridal fair in town”. Held at the prestigious One Marylebone on Sunday 25th March (from 12-6pm), this one-day event has pretty much every aspect of a wedding covered. And it’s not just for brides; the whole bridal party is invited.

There’s an impressive selection of original, exclusive and vintage-inspired dresses in the ‘Boutique’ area, where labels include Gently Worn Vintage, Sabina Motassem Bride and The Bridal Path. Pretty shoes are on show from the likes of Freya Rose and Rachel Simpson, lingerie from Fred & Ginger, and hair accessories, veils and jewellery from Kelly Spence.

While confidence is the key ingredient for looking radiant, natural beauty brands such as Elle au Naturel are on hand – along with hair and make-up experts – to make sure every bride is looking her most glam as she walks down the aisle. For styling advice, Sonia  from Want that Wedding will be available, while photography guidance is on offer from Kat Hill and planners Boutique Wedding are available for those who want to avoid Bridezilla episodes and mad panic.

For expert advice on your flower selection, you can question the expert brains behind Wild About, while the more ‘arty’ guests might be drawn to master calligrapher Paul Antonio (who uses ancient skills with pens, ink and paper). If like me, you often find yourself on the look-out for the most original fascinator in the crowd, (the quirkier the better if you ask me!), you’ll be keen to visit Edwina Ibbotson.

To avoid pre-wedding day and honeymoon wardrobe malfunctions, it’s worth visiting the ‘Boudoir’, which will be home to labels such as Kate Tailyour daywear. Discounts of up to 70% are available, along with mini-spa treatments (from Chi Yu Spa) and even lash extensions from Everinessence. And this can all be washed down with champagne, cupcakes and the sounds of harpist and soprano from Sounds Serene.

Entrance is complimentary but you must register your attendance here: http://thevintagebridedesignersale.eventbrite.com/. I hear that the first 200 visitors will be treated to goody bags filled with treats from the likes of AVEDA and OPI.
