6 WEEKS – 2 1/2 YEARS… It never ceases to amaze me at what a wonderful business the wedding industry is.

On Friday Alison visited Satin and Lace looking for her perfect dress with only 6 WEEKS to go until her big day, and we fulfilled all of her requirements. Then on Saturday we met the lovely Grace who chose her wedding gown and isn’t getting married until 2014, but it was still “The One” for her. So I think the morale of the story is – it’s never too early to order your dress and we at Satin & Lace are only too happy to help. Having dresses in stock, from many designers, different budgets, sizes 8 – 24 we feel confident that we can help any brides with their desires. 

This year we have once again introduced a January Sale at Satin & Lace. Unlike our Sale Weekends before, this time we’ve decided to run the Sale for the whole of January. Some fantastic wedding dresses are in the sale and we’ve also added many accessories including Wedding Shoes from Rainbow Club, Tiaras, Veils and other wedding essentials. Most of which can be viewed on our website – http://www.satinandlace.co.uk.

Due to our new designer Sophia Tolli’s arrival at Satin & Lace there are many sample dresses, hardly worn placed in our Sale. Many of these bargain dress have up to 50% off their retail price and are the bargain of the Year for any bride who is on a budget for their wedding. For example the stunning Sottero & Midgley dress – “Emmaline” would usually retail at £1700 and can be found in our sale at £850. Visit our website to view all dresses in our sale and their prices!

January is an extremely busy time of year for Satin and Lace so I can’t emphasize the importance of booking an appointment to ensure you receive full attentive service from of staff. To book an appointment call 01635 43704 or email info@satinandlace.co.uk.

I have included some Sale Dresses below to give you an idea of what beautiful wedding gowns can be found at Satin and Lace in our January Sale.



After visiting Harrogate earlier this month and viewing her fantastic collection, Satin and Lace have been appointed Sophia Tolli stockists for Bridal Gowns and also Bridesmaids Dresses.

After 10 years as Head Designer for Maggie Sottero, Sophie Apostolides created a new bridal collection, Sophia Tolli. With its unparalleled craftsmanship and exceptional fit the Sophia Tolli collection provides an array of gorgeous, show-stopping Bridal Gowns. Her new collection is schedule to arrive in January 2012, however we have been told we could take delivery of some dresses within the next few weeks…watch this space!

Here is the selection of Bridal Gowns we have ordered. We have tried to vary styles to create a nice cross section for our Brides.

Sophia Tolli will become our forth designer at Satin and Lace and we are very excited to have her dresses in our Boutique.

We have been told that we may be able to take delivery of some sample dresses before the ordered dresses arrive in our store. So if you like what you see and would love to try on some of her fabulous range then please call us on 01635 43704 or email us with your enquiry info@satinandlace.co.uk.

We were very pleased and impressed to read that Sophia Tolli was awarded the “ 2010, Bridal Buyer Best Dress of the Year Award. They received 32% of the votes from 25,000 brides to be. A fantastic achievement considering Sophia Tolli had only been trading for 3 years in the UK.

Sophia is an accomplished designer who has led the way in style and design over the last decade. We’re extremely proud to be associated with such a designer and we’re looking forward to the future.
