Proud to be part of a bridal revolution
What makes Cicily Bridal tick? What keeps Lisa and I going in this tougher-than-ever bridal retail industry? Well, it’s the Cicily brides and the #bridalrevolution that they have been creating since we opened in 2011!
It seems forever-ago that Lisa and I had the idea of creating a bridal boutique for brides at the front edge of bridal fashion. The brides who hunted down the wedding industry suppliers who offered them something different, who understood that their wedding was about them and the freedom to express their individuality!
For 9 years our aim has been to offer brides collections of modern wedding dresses from wedding dress designers who are at the top of their game. Wedding dress collections whose styles move as fast as our fashionable brides do!
When we opened 9 years ago, we couldn’t get enough of vintage style wedding dresses because that was what our brides were looking for. We filled our rails with dresses from designers that delivered the modern vintage vibe and our Cicily brides embraced every look and style that this beautiful moment in bridal fashion had to offer.
“Move over vintage”, our brides demanded 3 years ago, “We are looking for modern boho wedding dresses “. So, Lisa and I went knocking on the doors of designers like Rembo Styling that could deliver this relaxed and informal wedding dress style.

“Are romantic wedding dresses cool?”, Hell yeah! Have you seen Willowby by Watters?! For the bride who just wants her inner, totally romantic bride to have her moment, but has to be in a 2019 style – we’ve got your back! For you, we went straight to Willowby by Watters whose collections celebrate a bride’s unique, romantic femininity in a completely up-to-date way.

There has been a consistent presence on our rails and this has been from the fabulous Charlie Brear. A Cicily bride is always looking for an individual wedding style and Charlie Brear delivers that every time! Relaxed, effortless wedding dress styling. With her fabulous wedding separates that can be layered with delicate lace, polk dots and metallic twists the urban chic bride, romantic city bride, or just simple and elegant bride are all catered for with a Charlie Brear wedding dress.
Charlie Brear – cool and laid back
The wedding dress trend that we are currently really excited about is an urban boho wedding look that twists a rock and roll vibe with a chilled and relaxed style. So, what did we do? We found an amazing new designer called E&W Couture from Cardiff to supply us with her cool and contemporary wedding dresses and overlays. We can’t wait for this collection to arrive with us in September!

And it’s not just the wedding dresses that have to be on point for our brides, it’s our wedding accessories too. Two collections that we are so proud to style with our modern wedding dresses are from Debbie Carlisle and Flourish. Debbie Carlisle’s wedding accessory designs are light and laid-back with the perfect balance of sparkle. Our Flourish wedding accessories are bolder, for the bride who is going to rock her day from start to finish.
Cicily Brides we salute you!
You are cool, you are modern, you are romantic. Some of you are tom-boys who hate the thought of being in the lime-light all day. Some of you are boundary-pushing brides who want to break every wedding tradition to create your own. Some of you are chic brides who want a wedding dress that fits your elegant, composed personality and some of you are whimsical and romantic. Your venues range from a London film studio to the open wilderness of the Lake District. Some of you jet off to sun-drenched Mexican shores or choose a tipi in your Nan’s field.
Whatever your wedding styling, whichever direction your wedding journey takes you, Lisa and I will be at your side all the way, enjoying your bridal revolution ride with you!
