It’s no secret that Rock n Roll brides love short, 1950s style prom wedding dresses. In fact I often think it is probably the style I’d wear if I was getting married again. Not only are they super duper flattering to nearly every body shape, but the short style gives some much needed sass to a wedding day ensemble!
When my friends at True Bride, who have just launched a fifties-inspired range, got in touch to ask if I’d like to give away one of the dresses from their brand new Brighton Belle collection, after sobbing a little that I couldn’t be the one to win it, I jumped at the chance!
True Bride have been around since 2005. Set up by designer Nicki Flynn who has over twenty years of experience in the industry, she launched the brand with just a very a small collection of bride and bridesmaid dresses… and she’s been unstoppable ever since! Fast-forward ten years and the brand now houses five gorgeous collections.
Based in Brighton, True Bride are stocked in over 250 boutiques, some as far flung as Australia! They are inspired by everything from high fashion to street style, and they adore using new and exciting lace and bead work. Each collection they release brings something new.
“We offer stylish wedding gowns with vintage inspired details and traditional elements”, they told me. “Our prices range from £799 – £1599 and we also offer bridesmaid gowns in over 50 colours!”
“Our latest and most exciting new collection in Brighton Belle. Dedicated to tea-length styles with a retro feel, they are both wearable and affordable, with prices starting at £499. The dresses feature details from the 1950s like satin collars, sheer sleeves and circular skirts (perfect for dancing in). Every gown is designed and cut to flatter, using high quality fabrics and finishes.”
