If swishing around in a beautiful ballgown is something you consider to be an imperative part of your wedding dress shopping experience, then prepare to take a note of the boutique that we’re introducing as one of our new Sponsors on the blog today.
Chloë Jane Bridalwear is a super-friendly and super-stylish, family-run boutique, located in East Yorkshire, whose team loves nothing more than inviting brides for a good game of dress up to help narrow down their search to that one special dress, whilst having lots of fun along the way!
With a firm focus on fashion, the boutique houses a stunning array of designers and dress styles with something to suit all types of brides, plus helpful and honest advice at hand from owner Chloë Lindley, along with her sister and mum. Here to tell us more about their passion for all things wedding is the lovely Chloë herself.
Where is Chloë Jane Bridalwear located and how would you describe the look and feel of the boutique?
chloe says: Our boutique is located in the small town of Howden, East Riding of Yorkshire, nestled in the market square just a stone’s throw from the Minster. Our chocolate-box style boutique has a warm welcoming appearance with a neutral colour pallet, chic hotel-style décor and modern furnishings to reflect our luxurious and stylish approach to weddings.
What designers do you stock and can you tell us a little about each one?
We are an exclusive stockist of Hayley Paige and Blush by Hayley Paige, a collection of unconventional gowns for the quirky bride. Ball gown silhouettes are Hayley’s thing, with waterfall tulle and delicate details, a fun and fresh collection that is sure to make any bride feel like a princess for the day, and we love her girly-girl style!
Alessandra Rinaudo is the queen of Italian couture; her gowns are exquisitely made with the finest quality fabrics and show stopping designs. The collection portrays timeless elegance within each style with sophisticated details, creating unforgettable brides.
We also stock Nicole Spose – a collection designed by Alessandra Rinaudo, which, of course, is inspired by Italian glamour. In my opinion Nicole Spose has the highest quality lace and that’s what the Italians do best, the figure hugging designs create sexy brides with traditional detailing. Think Dolce & Gabanna bride!
Chloe Bridals is a classic collection made up of beautiful designs, the built-in support and structure found in each gown create super flattering silhouettes and show off every curve to the max. Sparkles, lace, blush tones, pearls, lace applique, beading Chloe bridals have the prettiest designs to ensure a beautiful bride.
We also stock Sofia Bianca; the delicate feminine collection mixes silk Mikado fabrics with encrusted crystals and silk organza for the brides who love bling! Expect full skirts and fitted bodices with silk covered buttons flowing all the way to the train, who doesn’t love that?
Finally, we are excited to announce our newest arrival – SAVIN London, a beautiful couture collection of sharp cut gowns handmade in London. The craftsmanship and stunning details within the collection create show-stopping pieces. Alternative brides will also love SAVIN’s accessories, who wants a fur shrug when you can have a quirky lace biker jacket!?
How do you pick the right designers for Chloë Jane Bridalwear and what do you think makes a good bridal collection?
Our collection of gowns took a lot of building; I researched like crazy to find the perfect designers for our boutique. My main intention was to offer exclusive designs, so it was essential that the designers weren’t stocked at every boutique in the area. I obviously had to love the collections and I think it’s also important to have a strong working relationship with each company. I wanted to offer a varied selection of styles and silhouettes in a range of sizes too so that we had a gown for everyone. I believe we have created the grounds of a good bridal collection in which to grow and flourish in the future, and I am excited to see the collection evolve.
What current trends are you seeing in bridal wear and can you forecast any future trends that will be coming through?
Being from a fashion background, I think my heart will always lie with fashion forward bridal gowns. I love to see how designers push the boundaries with bridal trends, this season we’ve seen more and more sheer gowns than we could ever have imagined! Quirky sleeves have made an appearance too in bell styles at Hayley Paige, oversized ruffles at Alessandra Rinaudo and don’t forget those Vera Wang super-long extended sleeves.
I think next season we can expect to see super daring gowns, more sheer fabrics, and barely-there bodices.

Pearl Veil – traditional lace with beautiful pearl trim detail
Nothing quite says bride like a gorgeous gown topped off with a veil. In line with fast-paced bridalwear trends it’s not a case of one style suits all, with designers creating a variety of veils to match with and complement gowns in their collections, meaning the options vary in length, layers and detail.
One of the latest designers to turn her talented hands to such accessories, is our wonderful Lead Sponsor and top British bridal designer, Charlotte Balbier. Last week on the blog we shared a special preview of Charlotte’s insanely-beautiful new wedding dress collection for 2018 – Bohemian Blush – and now the princess of bridalwear Miss Balbier, is treating us to full look at her fabulous new collection of veils.
Featuring an option for all styles of weddings, the fanciful designs range from flirty and elegant to dazzling and dramatic, with delicate fine tulles decorated with embellishments, beading, pearls and lace pattern detailing.
So, join us as we swoon over the highly-derisible designs on offer…
Silk Veil – silk tulle with floral diamante comb detailing
Antique Veil – silk tulle with antique diamante and pearl comb to complement
French Lace Veil – silk tulle with French lace veil detailing
Pearl & Diamante Veil – an intricate pearl and diamante veilcontinue reading
