One Off gowns at White Bride

We are excited to present a couple of gowns which we have given "The White Bride" treatment - these are gowns which we have added a special detail to make them individual and a "One Off" so no-one else will have a gown like it!

The first gown is called "Willow" it is a beautiful gown with a soft lace long line bodice that is very flattering - it has a lovely beaded lace detail along the empire line and a low bow detail which then falls into a super soft ivory tulle full skirt. The gown has a beautiful back with button detail and a train and has a fabulous inner corset which really supports you and you feel amazing!

The gown is a size 10-12 and is retailing for £900.00





The second gown is "IVY" a very simple gown of soft Ivory Organza with a fitted bodice, cinched in at the waist with a lovely satin ribbon and crystal detail then falling into a full circle skirt with wide ribbon edge trim.
The gown is a button back with an inner corset which holds the gown up and then a lovely French lace open back bolero and high neck.

This gown is a size 10-12 and is £700.00




These are ONE OFF gowns so once they are gone they are gone, so if you love the look of them get in touch soon and come and try them on.........

The team at White Bride....

As we have had most of the NEW 2015 Collections in store the boutique is looking lovely and fresh with our newly upholstered chairs and sofa all ready for the Winter.

White Bride is at the top of Narberth High Street right opposite the car park and next to White Boutique......



 
 
 
 
Sally White is the owner of White Bride - The bridal shop opened in 2008 by Sally who had opened White Boutique right next door in 2001.
 
 



The Bridal boutique was born from much research and talking to customers about their bridal experience and what the liked and didn't like so we had a clear idea what sort of service we wanted to supply.

We have built a reputation on service, quality and attention to detail and for having a collection that offers something a little different for the discerning bride. We do also stock many Classic wedding gowns.

White Bride is little with a tiny window but we have an wonderful collection of current gowns from the 2015 collections to show brides with all the most up to date trends in bridal.

We are conscious of keeping the collection new and so we don't keep gowns for years and years we like to have the newest version of a style which also means you wont have seen it on loads of other brides.




We do this by selling off the older samples in our SAMPLE SALES which are on all year so if you are on a budget or short of time you can still find a beautiful dress in great condition at a great price.



We buy from British Bridal Designers Sassi Holford, Charlie Brear, Charlotte Balbier, Jenny Packham and AnnasulY and Twobirds Bridesmaids.

We have fabulous relationships with all of the labels which is so important to us as we know that the gowns will come on time and the quality is fantastic.

We also stock some wonderful accessories from award winning makers - Rachel Simpson shoes, Jenny Packham Accessories, Rosie Willett, Flo & Percy, Sasso Wraps, Helen Martin Veils and Klaire Van Elton Adornments all available to try in the boutique along with some special pieces made for us here.






When you come to White Bride you get 1.5hrs on a Saturday or 2hrs (where possible) in the week to try our wonderful selection of gowns, shoes, veils and accessories, the boutique is yours and yours alone for this time as we only take one appointment at a time- it makes it special for you.



When you come you will see one of three ladies - whoever you see for your first appointment we will endeavour that you will see them for every subsequent appointment. This means you don't have to repeat your wedding story, get comfortable with a new person and it also inspires confidence in us, you will also see that person for all your fittings with YOUR gown later in the process.


There are THREE staff at White Bride plus our amazing Seamstress Helen who works in our sewing room and performs miracles with fabric.






There is myself Sally, Sharon and Nicola we are a great team and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE everything bridal and wedding related!


The lovely Sharon.



And the fabulous Nicola


The wedding gowns NEVER leave the boutique all the fittings are conducted here and alterations so the first time it will leave us is when you take it home in one of our White Bride gown carriers.
 
 
 
 
So from start to finish we hope we can give you the most magical and stress free experience.

SAMPLE SALE - Amy Mair Couture - Frieda May collection

We have decided to put into the SAMPLE SALE the collection of gowns we made in collaboration with Amy Mair Couture in 2013.

Amy came to work for us in the boutique in February 2012 in Bridal as sales and as a Seamstress working on alterations having worked for Stephanie Allin for a short time. Sally having come from a similar background wanted to nurture and support a newly graduated designer on the hard and long path to becoming a Couture Bridal designer.
So as part of this we decided it would be lovely to have a collection exclusively for White Bride made in Pembrokeshire so the collection was born.
It was wonderful to support a young designer and help her establish a brand with a beautiful website and stunning photo shoot.

All of the samples are a size 10/12 and are in the current AMY MAIR COUTURE Collection so it really is an opportunity to bag a fabulous bargain from a young designer just starting out in the world of bridal. Amy has now moved to Cardiff and has set up on her own with a new look and website - we do wish her all the luck in the world with her new venture.
 


 
ASTER - was £1295 now £600


 
BLUEBELL -was £1450 now £700

 

 
 
LUPIN was £1295- now £600
