Wedding Blog Winner: A £300 Online Spree With Simply Be!

Well, doesn’t time fly!  It’s already time to announce the rather lucky winner of our fabulous New Year’s competition to win a £300 online shopping spree (and what I wouldn’t give for a £300 online shopping spree right now) with Brides Up North sponsor, Simply Be..

If you aren’t already familiar with Simply Be, the online retailer exclusively for sizes 14 – 32, have just launched a rather beautiful – and affordable (particularly if you take home today’s bacon, right?!) – bridal range especially for the fashion conscious plus size bride.  Go see their beautiful new Bridal Boutique and exclusive new collection.

.

The team say: Feel divine on your wedding day in one of our stunning plus size wedding dresses. Our angel-sleeve wedding dress in a sumptuous oyster shade features flattering arm coverage and beautiful beading on an empire line silhouette. The ivory coloured petal trim dress has a fabulously feminine feel, with pretty ruffled straps and a super floaty fabric to have you gliding down the aisle. For those who like a little more arm coverage, the clean lines of our long sleeved wedding dress are perfect. Or for something a little different, pick our knot-front bridal gown in soft blush peach – it makes a gorgeous plus size bridesmaid dress too and is available with a matching bridal shrug.

Wedding soon, we’re in a whirl.
Bridal and accessories would be a dream,
With Simply Be I’ll look supreme.

Happy Sunday Brides Up North!  How are you spending yours? 

.

Today is one of those rare days when I have absolutely nothing in the diary whatsoever.  No calls to make, events to host or attend, not even a family roast dinner.  And you know what?  Rather than feeling bored or restless, I’m absolutely revelling in it!

.

If you are a regular reader of the blog, you’ll know that the last few weeks months have been super hectic here at Brides Up North towers, with a huge home and office move thrown into the usual mayhem, just to keep things interesting.  So I’m grabbing hold of this glorious free time with both hands, using it to relax, recharge, read the Vogue Catwalk Report, feather my nest and catch up with all the outstanding admin issues that the past fortnight’s dodgy server and internet provision have left me with.  I’m hoping that I’ll enter next week feeling thoroughly fresh.  And goodness, do I have some gorgeous to share with you next week…

In the meantime, I thought that I should spread this unusual January joy by spreading a little happiness to one of my lovely readers too (yes, it could be you!).  Whether you are a bride to be, wedding watcher or industry reader, this fabulous prize – courtesy of my friends at Simply Be, the online retailer for plus size fashion, exclusively for sizes 14 – 32 – could be winging it’s way to you!
