Planning for a special occasion in 2015?

With the Festive season soon to become a distant memory, some of us will be looking forward to planning other events during the coming year for a family member; for our businesses or for our clubs.

Brides will be seeking out that ’special’ wedding dress to help them look their very best, irrespective of their individual size or body shape.

LondonAD2A new family-run bridal shop gives brides the best possible service regardless of their size.

When it came the time for owner, Rebecca Lord, to find her own wedding dress she was so disheartened.

She finally found a local shop that stocked a small selection of larger sizes, but ended up making her own wedding dress because she couldn’t find ‘the one’.

Today, Edith & Winston’s dresses can be ordered from a size 6 up to a size 32 and, in order to give every bride the chance to experience the feeling you should when you enter a bridal shop, Rebecca has purchased a range that starts at size 14+.

So, no one need feel embarrassed or disheartened when entering Rebecca’s new shop at 4A Princess Street in Knutsford. She hopes that everyone will feel that they can come and visit her – whatever their size.

Edith & Winston stocks Ivory & Co, Kitty Chen and Agnes Bridal Dream, with a specialist in plus sized design called Callista taking the number of designers to four. Visit www.edithwinston to see some of the styles available.
