Major bridal label Romantica will probably already be on your radar (and if not, it will be by the time you read our budget feature in the September/October edition), but did you know the brand now has a fledgling line under its wing?
“We premiered the new collection from Romantica, Jennifer Wren Bridal, on the runway at the Ayrshire Wedding Exhibition last month,” unveils Dream Brides’ Kirsty Grant. “Every gown is designed to wow, with crystal embellishment in abundance, intricate lace and eye-catching textiles. It’s a joint venture between Romantica – which boasts 35 years of experience and skill – and Phil Collins Bridal’s chief creative designer Jennifer Gibbs.
“Jennifer has been at the forefront of design and production for Phil Collins Bridal since its inception over 10 years ago and after many years in the industry, Phil has decided to step back and help Jennifer lead the way, bringing the collection forward in a modern and exciting way.”
Head to the Irvine store to check out style JW9908, top, £POA. Its subtle lace bodice and regal, full skirt, with an unusual scalloped hemline, get our vote. And how romantic is style JW9916’s, above, £POA, playfully ruffled skirt?
Once you’ve landed yourself a Jennifer Wren gown, turn your attention to your best girls. Dream Brides has their dresses in the bag, too. “For the full month of November, we are running our very popular bridesmaid offer, with discounts galore for your bride tribe,” reveals Kirsty. “If you order two dresses, you’ll get a 10% discount on each, if you buy three, you’ll get 15% off, and if you take away four or more, we’ll give you one of them for free!
“There are few terms and conditions: you’ll need to pay a 50% deposit, and the ‘maids must be measured and sized, plus all dresses ordered, by 30th November.”
