Did you know that all our collections are designed by an amazing team right here in Yorkshire?

Each and every dress we sell in our boutiques is designed by our own in-house team of amazingly talented designers, from the tiny detailing in the lace and embroidery to the shape and fit of the gown.  So when you try on a dress in one of our boutiques, that gown has been built from scratch in our Yorkshire design studio by an incredible team who work with Elite Brides every day!

So what does this mean for our brides?

Firstly, it means we can offer you incredible value for money.  Having an in-house design team, combined with our great relationships with suppliers, enables us to offer you the same amazing quality as world-famous bridal brands, and at only a fraction of the price - and we know this because we share overseas manufacturers with some of the biggest names in bridal.

Secondly, it means we have a lot more freedom and ability to customise your gown than other bridal boutiques.  With our designers always on-hand, we have a team who work with each of these gowns every single day, and know exactly how each of them can be personalised down to the tiniest detail.  Want to swap a corset for a zip and buttons?  No problem!  Adding sleeves or extra embellishment?  Sure!  Not keen on a neckline?  Tell us what you'd like, and more often than not we'll be able to fix it for you.

If you fall in love with one of our gowns but would like some bespoke alterations to make it truly perfect, please don't hesitate to mention this to your personal bridal advisor or to one of our seamstresses.  Your bridal advisor will be able to give you a lot of guidance on how your gown can be altered and give you a rough price guide, and any of our seamstresses will be able to talk you through these alterations in detail and give you a final quote for the work.

Above all else, don't be afraid to chat to us about your dream dress.  We want you to walk down the aisle feeling like a queen, and we'll do as much as we can to get you there!
