It gives me real pleasure to introduce Stacey from The Bridal Chalet. A great place to shop for bridalwear from wedding dresses, whether new, used or pre-loved as well as bridesmaid dresses for your wedding. Anyway, let’s see what Stacey had to say when we caught up!


 Q: Tell us a little bit about The Bridal Chalet and how it got started.

The Bridal Chalet is run from home and online tailored around my family life. Selling new, ex-sample and pre-loved dresses at excellent prices. It got started after I myself got engaged and I was shopping around for wedding dresses. Luck brought me in contact with a fantastic supplier of new, used and pre-loved designer wedding, bridesmaid and flowergirl dresses. Needless to say my wedding was put on hold due to that opportunity.


Q: What advice do you have for Brides to Be before they set out looking for their perfect wedding dress?

Do not rule anything out! A style you think may not suit you, try it, you may be pleasantly surprised. Also, depending on the designer, wedding dress sizes do differ from high street sizes.  Consider a pre-loved or ex-sample designer dress before a copy. Chances are the price won’t be much different.


Q: What makes The Bridal Chalet stand out from the crowd?

A designer wedding dress can be supplied at a fraction of it’s original cost and it is the real deal not a copy. Excellent, honest service. I can negotiate on price as there are no shop overheads.


Q: What style of wedding gown is proving popular at the moment?

Lace is a very popular choice from our Brides to Be at the moment.

Fuschia Dress

Q: Tell us a little bit about your newest wedding gown or accessories collection and why you’re so excited about it.

My next order of 25 dresses have lace style included and I can not wait to see them.


Q: What does the future have in store for The Bridal Chalet ?

Hopefully lots more happy Brides – happy with dress, happy with price and happy with the service.  Perhaps an extension to my home to allow for a dedicated room for viewing and trying.


There’s a brief glimpse into what Stacey has to offer at The Bridal Chalet, along with some great advice on getting your perfect wedding dress at a fraction of the cost without compromise!

Autumn is knocking on our door and soon after will be Winter, so today I have the pleasure of introducing Katie of Wonderful Wraps. She has a little something to keep any Bride warm on her Winter Wedding Day or even just a little something to keep those shoulder covered.


Q: Tell us a bit about Wonderful Wraps. What you do? Why you started ? And how long you’ve been going?

Wonderful Wraps offer exquisite bridal, mother of the bride, occasion, vintage, fashion wear cover ups, jewellery and hair accessories that make the perfect finishing touch to your special occasion. We also have wedding wraps, bridal stoles, boleros and shrugs in the finest lace, silks, chiffons, velvet and cashmere to give a beautiful finish to a wedding outfit. Wonderful Wraps really has something to suit every occasion and outfit. We started about 15 years ago when there were hardly any shops selling nice quality cover ups.


Q: When would you say that a wrap or shrug would be a good idea, for any brides that maybe haven’t even considered one?

Our pieces are ideal for anyone wanting to have something covering their shoulders or perhaps keep in a bit of warmth for those weddings in the chillier months.


Q: What tips or advice would you give to brides about their outfit when planning their wedding?

Always try your accessories on with your dress in plenty of time, rather than leaving it to the last minute. Remember the devil is in the detail.


Q: What made you get involved with the wedding industry?

It was my passion for beautiful high quality fashion as well as helping Brides to Be with their outfit for their Wedding Day.


Q: What can brides expect when they buy from you?

Here at Wonderful Wraps we pride ourselves on supplying high quality, handmade pieces, (in the UK), and providing an excellent personal service.


Q: What’s your biggest achievement to date? (Doesn’t have to be wedding related).

Helping lots of Brides feel special on their wedding day. As well as working with Strictly Come Dancing each year. Tess Daily, Jerry Hall & Debra Stephenson have all worn our wraps as well as Helen Mirren.


Q: What does the future have in store for Wonderful Wraps?

Lots of exciting new designs and now our jewellery is flying out the door!
