Recently we had the pleasure of attending the Welsh National Wedding Awards where we were voted as Best Bridal Retailer in Wales for the 8th year running.  We thank all of our brides and customers, past and present for taking the time to vote for us and are still on cloud nine here in Newport and Chepstow.   The South Wales Argus have published an article on our success…

Bridal store scoops award for eighth consecutive year

Gwent-based All About Eve Bridal with stores based in Newport and Chepstow, has picked up two prizes at the Welsh National Wedding Awards.

The annual awards honour all categories of Welsh businesses.  Matt Johnson, the host from This Morning, was master of ceremonies at the event at the stunning Brangwyn Hall in Swansea.

A spokesman for All About Eve said: “The awards are voted for by our brides and their families, so means so much to us.”

All About Eve firstly won Best Bridal Retailer in the Cardiff and East region and went on to win Welsh National Bridal Retailer.

Here at All About Eve Bridalwear in our Newport store, we have a fabulous range of outfits to suit all Mothers of the Brides and Grooms, ready for the big day. We have a wide mix of colours and fabrics, so whether you are looking for a glamorous beaded number, a simple and chic style or beautiful lace outfit, it really is worth
coming to see our lovely collections.

MOTHER OF THE BRIDE DESIGNERS

We are lucky enough to have Mother of the Bride and Groom outfits from some of the top occasion wear designers to offer our lovely mums. These include John Charles, Ispirato, Condici, Veni Infantino and Dressed Up. Designs from John Charles are very classical and sophisticated and tend to have good structure within the dress. If you look towards designs by Ispirato, these tend to be of a lighter weight and have a slightly more modern feel. Are you looking to be more traditional in fabric such as raw silk Condici is the designer for you. We are lucky enough to also have a designer called Dressed Up, these are especially for our plus size mums and compliment a fuller figure. There really is something for everyone here at All About Eve Bridalwear Newport.

HOW IT WORKS

To get the best experience, we do advise you to make a dedicated appointment with us, as we then allow you an hour and a half with a fully trained member of staff in a beautiful private fitting room. We will also try our best to accommodate walk in appointments as well but if you are planning a day of shopping an appointment would be
preferable. Please phone ahead if there are any styles you are travelling to see as stock can go quickly and we can check if it’s still available for you. We offer you a lovely experience, providing you and your guests refreshments and we are there for the whole appointment to advise and make suggestions for you. We will even help you decide on the colour of your accessories if you wish and show you matching headwear. We always like to make you and your guests feel very welcome, trying as many outfits as you wish in a calm atmosphere.

Mother of the Bride and Groom outfits are limited in availability, so please be aware that colours, sizes and styles are not able to be re-ordered in any size. We get asked frequently if styles can be ordered in a different size and unfortunately this isn’t something the designers offer in order to keep the collections exclusive.

Upcoming Mother of the Bride/groom Event 30th of September

On the 30th of September in our Newport store we will be having an event all day especially for our mothers of the bride and grooms. There will be fashion shows throughout the day allowing you to see some of the beautiful outfits on a real body before you try them on. Please ring ahead if you would like to attend this event, on 01633 243943.
