ÉLYSÉE ETOILE designer showcase in Boutique brides of Crosby, Crosby l23 3AT 31st March till the 3rd April!
These events are often called trunk shows but basically it is a chance for designers to showcase their collections in boutiques around the world. We are so honoured to be hosting them on 31st March-3rd April.
With us being a new stockist of ÉLYSÉE we thought we’d delve into who they are as a brand and hopefully you will fall in love with them as much as we have…
“ÉLYSÉE is inspired by the harmony and balance of Neoclassical art and architecture and uses modern silhouettes to accentuate the figure and contour the shape of the body. The Brand Name is derived from the Ancient Greek word “Elysium”, meaning a place or state of perfect happiness. Timeless and gorgeous, our lines are sure to amaze. ÉLYSÉE was founded and is headquartered in Southern California, with offices and retail partnerships around the world. Our gowns are sold exclusively through premium authorized retailers and are never sold online.”
There will be 30 dresses we don’t usually stock in the boutique so LOTS of choice, and if you book in on this weekend it doesn’t mean you are limited to just the ÉLYSÉE dresses, you will be able to browse our usual collection too!
If you want to book an appointment or even if you just want more information about our collection call us on 0151 924 1698 or find us on instagram @boutiquebridesofcrosby or Facebook.
This is THE question we are asked daily by our brides!
And the answer is – wear whatever makes you feel the most comfortable and beautiful. It is YOUR day to do with what you please….
However, we do have some tips for what underwear works best under certain dresses and styles.
Ultimately (and you’ll be glad to hear it) the best underwear to wear is seamless underwear or no VPL and depending on the waist line the higher the better!
If your wedding dress is more fitted and especially in a crepe material you might want to go with a seamless thong so you really can’t see the panty line through the dress.
Another big tip is go with nude underwear! White willshow through more fitted dresses and nude will blend in with your skin tone.
We have rounded up some of our favourites from the high street so you don’t have to…
Starting off strong with M&S. Our, (well at least my) go to when it comes to underwear;
A pack of 5, no VPL nude thongs are currently on their website for £9! You really can’t go wrong at this price, and you even have some spare!
Next up, there’s Next. They do a 3 pack of a nude, white and black pair of no VPL knickers for £16. Not as good value for money as M&S but the other colours might be more practical for day to day wear after the wedding day!
Then we have Boux avenue who do a nude microfibre shorts for £8. This is just for the one pair of knickers so it is definitely coming in at the most expensive but they have excellent reviews and do look extremely comfortable. Comfort is key!
Now, something I was always aware of when I was getting married, was my legs chafing under my dress (if you know , you know!) and M&S comes up trumps again with their anti chafe cycling shorts in nude, for £8. It solves all your worries and another bonus is that they look super comfortable and will definitely come in handy for your hot girl summer!
And as always, we are always just a message or a phone call away. If you have any questions you want us to answer more in depth like this one, please let us know! Hope this helps xx
