If makeovers are your weakness, you’re going to love what the Aberdeen boutique formerly known as Brides Delight has been up to.
“We’ve just moved premises and rebranded to Etiquette Bridal,” announces the store’s Eilidh Campbell. “The new shop [pictured above] is smaller, with a more ‘boutique’ layout, and, because of this, we can create a much more personal experience (all appointments are held on a one-to-one basis).
“I’ve been in the industry for ten years now, starting out as staff here before buying the business over six years ago. When the opportunity to move came along, it was an easy decision – perfect timing to rebrand and make the company my own!
“The new boutique has a contemporary feel to it and has been decorated in cream and dark green with feature globe lighting. We carry all three Maggie Sottero collections as well as the Ronald Joyce and Victoria Jane collections.”
We’ll be making a beeline for Rebecca Ingram’s Corrine gown, above, £1,075, when we come to visit.
“The structure in this dress was so fab that I couldn’t resist ordering it in two colourways and sizes, one of which is a plus size,” admits Eilidh. “I just had to have both the ivory and ivory/soft blush samples. It’s so different to the rest of the dresses on the rail, especially as it’s so fitted and structured, yet paired with a floaty, romantic chiffon skirt.
“The beaded embroidery adds another dimension to this mermaid gown, and I love the contrast this affords. Plus, there’s the on-trend plunge neckline, which is strategically covered by the lace, offering enough coverage, whilst still keeping its sexy, glamorous feel.
“Finished with beaded spaghetti straps and a button-down back, this dress has the perfect balance of modern and traditional elements.”
