Designers In Focus Spotlight On: Sincerity

Here at All About Eve Bridalwear (in our Newport store), we are lucky to hold a wide range of the top bridal designers. This week we are going to focus on the amazing designer Sincerity. Sincerity first started in 1997 for the European market and have since become a leading bridal brand.

Sincerity dresses are gorgeous and have a very romantic feel to them. Every collection offers brides-to-be a gorgeous range of shapes and styles. An amazing quality of sincerity is that they offer a designer gown for a very competitive price and that doesn’t mean you lose out on any of the details. Sincerity dresses are adorned with stunning lace appliques and are made from beautiful fabrics, They also tend to be a little more lightweight meaning that if your getting married abroad their dresses are just perfect.

Here at All About Eve Bridalwear we are proud to have around 2 dozen dresses from their recent collections and we really do love them, and so do our lovely brides!!! We love to show our brides these gowns.  The delicacy and beauty of them sets them apart from other designers.

Gorgeous Ranges To Suit All Your Bridesmaids

Here at All About Eve Bridalwear in Newport we have a stunning range of bridesmaids dresses from an array of designers such as, Mori Lee, Dessy, Ronald Joyce, Ebony Rose and Sorella Vita. There really is something for every bridesmaid that would suit any theme of wedding. We have approximately 250 different bridesmaids dress samples in total at our Newport store, meaning that you are sure to find a dress you love for your girls to wear to your wedding.  If you are struggling to get them to agree on a style, why not choose different styles for all of your bridesmaids? There is a vast range of colour options available too so we have every colour scheme covered! We also offer a small range of junior dresses and flowergirl dresses for the younger members of the bridal party.

For our bridesmaids appointments we have a dedicated bridesmaids suite that is spacious enough for those larger groups of bridesmaids as well as those brides who are only having one bridesmaid. It is located right next to the where all of our dresses are hung for you to see and touch to feel the variations in fabric.  We normally ask you to have a little browse through all of the dresses and pick some favourites to start trying on before we will then suggest more options for you to try based on your choices.

You’ll be in safe hands with one of our fully trained consultants here at All About Eve Bridalwear. Each designer has their own colour range for every individual dress and we have colour charts with fabric samples to ensure you get the right colour that you love for your wedding day, even if you haven’t decided on a colour before you arrive in store with us.

Our bridesmaids appointments work just the same as our bridal appointments where you will have your own private fitting room, a member of staff who is trained in bridesmaids and knows about each designer and their colour charts. You will also be offered refreshments to enjoy and relax during the appointment, and again you will not be rushed. All we ask is that when booking in you tell us how many bridesmaids you will be bringing on the day so that we can allocate the correct time in the diary for your appointment as we would not wish you to be rushed at all… we want you to enjoy your whole experience!

To book a bridesmaids appointment, please call us now on 01633 243943.  We hope you hear from you soon. (Please note bridesmaids samples are only located within our Newport store).

Mother of the Bride and Groom Outfits at All About Eve Bridalwear

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 Rosa Clara. 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 then have a lightweight and more trendy collection by a designer called Rosa Clara who tend to use laces in a modern twist for those mums who are a little younger and Veni Infantino offer amazing structure and lots of show stopping beaded dresses. There really is something to suit everyone!

How it works

To get the best experience, we do strongly 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. 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. We will even help you decide on the colour of your accessories if you wish and show you matching headwear.

Mother of the Bride and Groom outfits are limited edition, so please be aware that colours, sizes and styles are limited and 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.

High Summer Collection

Over the coming weeks we will have some outfits from the designers’ High Summer Collections. We have created a special page on our website for you to preview these outfits.  Please call us to check if a specific outfit has arrived into store and keep updated on our Facebook page as we will be updating it as soon as each outfit starts arriving.  These collections are perfect for those mums who still haven’t found their outfit for weddings later on this year.
