Did you know that the trend for the traditional white gown as a wedding dress was set by Queen Victoria in 1840?
When she married her prince she wore a white satin gown adorned with orange blossoms and it was trimmed with yards and yards of lace. She also had a long flowing veil and an eighteen foot train! After that it was the choice of most society brides and those who could really afford such luxury!
Nowadays you don't have to spend a million dollars to feel a million dollars. There are many bridal shops in the High Street and online.
However, if you are getting married next year and haven't chosen that dress yet. Come to the Fashion Show of the Year in The New Forest at the wonderful wedding Venue Careys Manor Hotel in Brockenhurst. You will be able to see for yourself our models wearing the bridal gowns of New Forest Brides, and many exhibitors there for you to gather ideas and enjoy a chat about your wedding day. Very exciting!
Only £10. a ticket, includes a free glass of wine. (all funds go to the three supported charities)
