Ian Stuart Designer Day at Limelight Occasions
You can always count on an Ian Stuart designer day to create an electric atmosphere here at Limelight, and this year the buzz was bigger than ever! The shop was packed with special guests, our brides-to-be, who were all eagerly awaiting their moment to grace our catwalk in the latest designs from Ian Stuart.
This year we found that the brides were having a particularly difficult time narrowing down their choices, this is due to the fabulous and diverse range of designs Ian has blessed us with in this collection. Here were some of the real contenders for our girls:
We just love how seductive the dramatic mermaid silhouette is on this beautiful dress – Raphaella. This gown can also be teamed with a billowing silk organza skirt to create a sweet fairy tale, creating two looks for the day — which we think is utter genius!
Of course, not every one found the one right away – our brides wanted to try them all – and our team was always ready with the next luxurious gown on the wish list.
How Pretty is Paradis? This ball gown graced our catwalk several times throughout the day and we can see why. The dress has what Ian describes as MGM Glamour, the laser cut leaf detail adds a delicate touch to a timeless and graceful gown. We just love it!
And we also love the intricate lace layers in La Paix, which help to create the ultimate fairytale effect, another popular choice from the collection…
All the team were working hard to help our clients bring everything together. From bridesmaid dresses to location, at limelight we make sure the dress fits the entire wedding, ‘this is just as important as ensuring the dress fits the bride, a wedding dress is the centre piece to the overall day, it must fit perfectly into place’ – Haley Guest, Owner and Bridal Buyer at Limelight Occasions.
And it was worth it all to see the reactions of loved ones when our brides stepped out in their chosen Ian Stuart Dress…
So, a huge congratulations to all the brides who bought their wedding dress at our Ian Stuart designer day, we are looking forward to helping you prepare for your big day!
For all you brides still searching just remember….
