LOROS Bridal Event

LOROS Bridal Event

Say yes to the dress, for less! Hundreds of brand new wedding dresses all under £200 at The LOROS Bridal Event

On Thursday 12th October, LOROS By Design Shop, in Leicester’s High Street, will be hosting a free bridal event, which will have hundreds of beautiful wedding dresses up for grabs.

With some of the dresses originally selling for the price of £2,000 this is the perfect opportunity for brides to literally say yes to the dress, for less.

By Design shop manager Abi Jarrom said: “For one night only, we will be transforming our entire By Design Shop into a beautiful wedding showroom, with a huge range of beautiful gowns available for brides-to-be.” They will have a number of brand new dresses in a variety of styles and sizes that have been kindly donated by local organisations, whilst some of the dresses are pre-loved and have been given to them by former brides. Ranging from strapless gowns to beaded vintage beauties, there really is a style to suit every bride.

With some dresses originally priced at nearly 10 times the amount we’re selling them for, they would be an opportunity missed if they didn’t pop in, even just for a browse. They received a donation of more the 150 brand new wedding dresses from local wedding businesses. As well as bridal gowns, there will also be a range of bridesmaid dresses and mother-of-the bride outfits available to try on, including all the much-needed accessories like shoes and hats.

Whilst brides are buying their dream dresses, they will also be part of something amazing by giving to a fantastic cause and helping LOROS to continue caring for terminally ill people, making their gown buying experience one that really is that little bit more special.

The event falls in this year’s annual Hospice Care Week, a national campaign showcasing the work of Hospices, like LOROS, around the country.
LOROS Bridal Event is on 12th October, from 4pm until 8pm. For more information visit

So Sassi | 2018 Bridal Collection

Fringed back details, feature sleeves and ballerina length tulle skirts

Anyone who knows Buckinghams knows we are big fans of Sassi Holford – in fact Sassi was the very first British designer to feature in our first issue back in 2014 so we are really pleased to share with you the So Sassi Collection for 2018.

“Each year, the So Sassi design team works hard to develop unique, individual and fashion forward styles, giving their brides a collection which is not only all those things but one that is created with love and passion. This bright team of fashion graduates, all focus on creating a label which represents the 21st century bride – she wants to have fun, dance like no one is watching and make her big day one that no one will forget.

The 2018 So Sassi Collection celebrates brides who want to embrace their own style, brides who are not afraid to make a statement and brides that want a twist on tradition.

Taking inspiration from generation ‘Y’ brides and celebrities, the collection sees a blend of styles, silhouettes and fabric that creates a fun-loving vibe. The way the skirt moves for dancing, the way the bodice keeps it shape and not forgetting the internal corset which makes you feel fabulous and sexy. New design elements include cold shoulders, fringed back details, feature sleeves and ballerina length tulle skirts – it is a collection that wows!”
