Well Ladies, I had a fabulous start to the week in the beautiful City of York. As you probably know Celebrating Curves Bridal was nominated for another award at the 2017 North of England Wedding Awards hosted by fabulous people at The Wedding Guide UK at York Racecourse. Yes, we were nominated finalists (again for the second year in a row!) in the Bridalwear category, no longer a newcomer like last year in 2016. See our 'We have only gone and done it again for the second year running...' post here.
So on Monday night in true glamorous style, my three fabulous friends and I - who have helped me SO much over the last two years and who I truly love to bits, strutted our stuff and got 'papped' (below) on the green (not red) carpet and into the fabulous awards ceremony...
A delicious three course evening meal was served and the drinks were flowing very nicely, then the countdown began…
Well unfortunately we didn't win, as we were up against some of the most well established and respected bridal shops in Yorkshire… But a very good night was had by all!! To be honest it was fantastic just to be nominated.
A huge Thanks to everyone who voted for us, Thank you so much to every single bride - it really does mean the world!! Thank you to Wedding fayres Yorkshire and The Wedding Guide UK for organising a truly great night!!!
Well ladies, I am just so delighted to see that Celebrating Curves Bridal have been chosen for a "Boutique Spotlight" by Find Your Dream Dress… Feeling fabulous right now!!! Please share ladies and help to spread the word about our little studio in Sheffield, South Yorkshire!!!
A big Thank You to Izzy and everybody involved at Find Your Dream Dress.

Full-figured brides will love the fab selection and amazing customer service at Celebrating Curves Bridal in Sheffield!
Where are you based?
Sheffield in South Yorkshire. We are out of town and easily accessible from the M1 motorway. We are in a small courtyard, not a high street location, which ensures that our brides appointments are always private.
What makes your boutique stand out?
Our mission statement is: To inspire women to celebrate their curves on their wedding day and EVERY day! We specialise in dresses for plus size brides, with all samples in size 16 or above. The business concept is based on the dress shopping experience of our owner Jane; being plus size herself she understands the needs of curvier women and offers help, advice and reassurance to every bride who walks through the door. We pride our self in the relaxed atmosphere that we offer, it really is more than just a dress shop, we strive to ensure that every bride not only walks out of our studio having chosen the dress of her dreams, but also feels great about herself and how she will look on the most important day of her life!
Which bridal designers do you stock?
White Rose Graceful, Christina Wu Love, Allure Women and Victoria Kay.
What is the price range of your dresses?
Our dresses cost between £895 and £2350, but the majority of stock is between £1000-£1400.
Do you stock bridesmaid dresses?
We stock flower girl dresses by Emma Bridals (Age 18 months to 12 years) and from November we will be stocking Prom and Occasion wear by Eternity Bridal.
Do brides need an appointment to visit you?
Yes, we offer a full two hour appointment, where the bride and her entourage have exclusive use of our studio. We believe that this is such an important part of the preparations for the wedding that EVERY bride deserves to experience. Make your appointment today to become part of #teamcurves. We can't wait to meet you at our Sheffield Studio!
Do you have any events, sample sales or trunk shows coming up?
We have an accessory sale evening coming up in October, and Sample Sale Week is taking place from 20th to 27th November 2017.
Where can brides find you online?
Brides can visit us at celebratingcurves.co.uk, or find us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Well ladies, what a fantastic few days I've had at Harrogate at the brilliant Harrogate Bridal Show and The Bridal Buyer Awards!
The Harrogate Bridal Show is the UK's largest Bridal Buyer Event! Widely acknowledged as the biggest and by far the most important of all industry events in northern Europe, The Harrogate Bridal Show leads the way- as it has done for over thirty years!
I just love my job so much!! I literally could not wait to see the fabulous runway catwalk shows showcasing the stunning new collections from the designers.
The new collection by Victoria Kay Gowns on the runway were all beautiful, not every dress was right for our little studio, but I saw some fabulous ideas! It was the perfect opportunity for me and Celebrating Curves Bridal to discover the latest trends for YOU, the brides-to-be in 2018.
Just a few of the runway highlights below...
Actually got the best seat in the house... Unfortunately only one of the designers used a plus size model!
The Bridal Buyer Awards - Literally could not be more excited about being invited to these awards! It is the industry’s most prestigious awards, which was on Monday night. I dusted off my dancing shoes and put on my most glamorous evening dress for a night of awards, celebration and entertainment as the ceremony shines a spotlight on the best in the bridal industry. Thank you so much to White Rose Bridal for the really kind invite - I think I had a bit too much champagne…
