Hollywood Dreams

This stunning Hollywood Dreams dress is also for sale at the boot fayre. The exciting thing about this stunning gown is that it was made by the designer herself!! Check out details below for more info....

Hollywood Dreams – Cameo Wedding Gown
(Made by designer herself)

Here’s your chance to have your very own beautiful, genuine “Cameo“ by Hollywood Dreams wedding dress. Only worn once and dry-cleaned after the wedding, Original Cost: £3,600 and took 1 year to be made. Size 8 but would fit up to a size 10 due to lace up corset style back. The material is White Silk. Duchess Satin with intricate detail, soft heart shape neckline on the bodice, soft ‘v’ hip line, half meter extra length on skirt train, Swarovski crystals embroidered covering the entire bodice. Swarovski crystals sewn in to each rose on the dress, which makes it unique. I specifically requested this on ordering along with an extended train which can be rouched up out of the way for the evening and creates a cascading waterfall effect. I am selling this beautiful dress because I've had my fairytale wedding, and I would hope it would make you feel like a princess as I did on my special day.

Nearly a month to go.....!

Well, doesn't time fly when you're having fun?! It's been a pretty hectic few weeks, and the days are ticking by... soon the Brighton Bridal Boot Fayre will be upon us... We've been so chuffed with the response to the boot fayre this time round. It's amazing what Facebook and word of mouth can do! We've had huge support from loads of fantastic local businesses who're loving the idea and want to be part of it.
We went to visit the hall again yesterday and got VV excited about it... we've still gots few bits to plan, but we are full for businesses and only have a few bride tables left - so things are moving in the right direction and we're happy girls! What we really want is to be able to offer brides ( and hubby's)-to-be the chance to really be inspired by those of you who've got married and are looking to recycle their wedding stuff. It's such a lovely feeling ( from experience) knowing that the stuff you bought is going to a good home and will help to shape someone else's big day. We love the thought of things having  a past and a story of their own ( a little bit sentimental, we know! We're not the biggest green goddesses either, but at least by by buying second hand you're helping the environment in a small way too.
We're looking forward to hearing all the big day stories from our brides who're having tables and also meeting you lovely people who're about to get hitched! Exciting times ahead...

Ta ta for now,
