Your Dream Wedding Dress Awaits: Win £500 to Spend with Chotronette!!

Chotronette for Rock n Roll Bride magazine, photographed by Devlin Photos

Chotronette are amazing. There really is no other way I can start this post, because it’s true. Their dresses are unlike anything else I’ve ever seen (and I’ve seen a lot of wedding dresses!) and their price points are, quite frankly, offensively affordable.

I’ve been lucky enough to shoot some of these Romanian designers’ gowns in for Rock n Roll Bride magazine too, and I can attest to the fact that the quality is fantastic. They’re just as stunning and magical in person, yep they’re everything you dream that your alternative wedding dress could be.

To celebrate the launch of their brand new collection, I’m partnering with Chotronette to give you the chance to win £500 to spend on their website! The only difficult part is going to be choosing which gown you’d go for.

How about this incredible purple beauty?

Or this rainbow skirted dream of a gown?

This is the first dress of theirs I ever saw online and I was immediately smitten. It’s magical.

Win a Made-to-Measure Wedding Dress from Leis Atelier!

Win a Made-to-Measure Wedding Dress from Leis Atelier! (13)

If you want to avoid the (sometimes scary) bridal shop experience the internet is your friend when it comes to finding your dream gown. Not only can you often find things cheaper (online retailers don’t have the overheads that bricks and mortar stores do) but the options tend to be much more creative – endlessly so in fact!

However finding somewhere you can trust to order a wedding dress online can be tricky. How do you know if the dress your ordering will arrive looking as you expected? How can you guarantee the quality of fabrics used will be up to scratch? How will you know if it’s even going to fit you?

Our made-to-measure dresses are high quality, and affordable. Through our amazing fitting system, all brides have to do is send in their measurements after they purchase a gown.”

Win A Boho Wedding Dress from White + Lace

I just have to preface this post by saying that any bridal brand that uses llamas in their campaign photo shoot is OK in my book! Quite apart from their exceptional choice in models, Israel based design house White + Lace are dress designers that you’re definitely going to want to know about.

Launched in 2015, they not only hand make each and every one of their gorgeous gowns from their Tel Aviv studio, but they do so using only the highest quality of materials and fabrics.

Their designs are influenced by bridal trends, but also high street fashion, meaning that their creations are modern, wearable and super, duper cool. Their newest collection, Boho Chic, features dresses that are both beautiful and flattering for brides wanting to creating an effortless and laid back look on their wedding day.

And with their prices ranging from just £300 to £1200 they won’t break the bank either!
