Curvy brides in the United Kingdom (UK) will soon to able to find Michelle Bridal plus size wedding gowns in fine shops near them. I've just returned from the famed Harrogate Bridal Show in Yorkshire where buyers from throughout the UK fell in love with the collection of formal and informal wedding dresses. It won't be long! The Spring 2016 Collection will start arriving in shops through the UK in early 2016. As the designer, I am overwhelmed by the reception of our plus size gowns as we debut the Spring 2016 Collection in UK. A huge "Thank You" to all the fabulous buyers who made our debut in UK such a smashing success. Watch the store locator to see where to buy Michelle Bridal in England. You'll have dozens of choices. Shops in Bishop Auckland, Hampshire, Stockton-in-Tees, Doncaster, and Arace ordered the Spring 2016 Collection - just to name a few! Bridal shops in Scotland, Ireland and Wales also placed orders for Michelle Bridal plus size gowns as we made our debut in UK. This was our very first time showing Michelle Bridal plus size wedding dresses at a market outside the USA. We've always displayed that collection in August in Atlanta, in September in Dallas and in October in Chicago. We had no idea what to expect for the Michelle Bridal plus size debut in the UK. The buyers, or stockists as they say in the UK, adored the modern, contemporary designs and loved the lace fabrics. Most of all, they lusted over the construction of the gowns which is essential to getting a fit that flatter the full-figured bride. And my choice of ivory for the sample color struck a fashion chord. Very few brides in the UK wear white when they go down the aisle. Ivory wins the hearts of brides in the UK just as it does at home in the USA. The favorite gown of all? Michelle Bridal Style MB1606 was a market favorite as the stockists loved the full skirt, corseted back with modesty panel and beautiful design on the bodice fabric. Running a close second place, was Style MB1605, an elegant and classic wedding dress with a lace bodice, key-hold back and figure-flattering A-line skirt. Learning Curve Americans may speak the same language as the British. Still, we had a learning curve when it came to carrying on conversations at the show. Here's just three examples of words we needed translated:
- - A stockist is a storekeeper.
- - A range is a collection.
- - A stand is a booth.
- - A rail is a rack.
