Launched back in 2011 by Shelley Carter-Bright and Kirstie Taylor, Kitty and Dulcie offer beautiful wedding dresses all under £400.
Now, with a string of awards under their sparkly belt and national industry praise, the company have launched their latest season of wedding dresses called Vintage Affair.
“We listened to our brides who constantly inspire us with their questions and feedback about how they felt in our gowns,” says Shelley. “It’s not just about the look, it’s about comfort and the confidence a dress can provide.”
With a collection of four wedding dresses along with a polka dot bridesmaid dress and lace bolero, their latest collection is inspired by all things vintage, with lace playing a huge part this season.
Shelley continues: “Lace remains a firm favourite for brides — there hasn’t really been a time when lace hasn’t featured from season to season. A big trend for 2015 is delicate lace and flower accessories such as the new gorgeous headpieces from our sister company Flo and Percy, their Shakespeare’s Garden collection has just launched and it’s utterly dreamy.”
With some simply stunning dresses this season, the girls struggle to choose a favourite, but there is one that holds a special place in their hearts. Kirstie explains: “We adore all the designs but we both have a soft spot for Betty Blossom (pictured above, £395). She’s the big sister to our award winning and much loved Pearly Queen bridal gown from our Strictly London collection.
“We share a huge love of vintage glamour especially from the 50’s — cinched in waists and short full skirts with maximum twirl capacity are a firm fashion favourite of ours. However, we will swoon equally over a long flowing gown and a figure hugging full length dress — long or short we love designing them all.”
If you’re a bit wary of ordering online then don’t worry, at Kitty and Dulcie you’ll have your dress in just five days, instead of waiting months if ordering from a wedding boutique.
“We want our bride to really enjoy the shopping experience she has had with Kitty and Dulcie,” the girls explain. “How our bride is treated and the service she receives from us is at the heart of our business. As an internet only company it is important that we give the same help and attention that the bride would receive had she gone into a shop.
“We encourage our brides to ask as many questions as possible — everything from the cut and flow of the gown to the type of shoes and hair accessories that will match. Our dresses can only be purchased via our website so we ask our brides to send questions to [email protected]
So if you’re looking for a beautiful wedding dress on a budget, your dream dress is just a click away.
