Discover our beautiful Ivory Secret brides, in our new Friday Feature.

Here they tell their bridal story, reviewing their dress and shopping experience with us. We hope seeing the dresses loved and worn by fellow brides will be a source of unlimited wedding inspiration!


First up is our real bride Katie, who married Phil in July 2017 in a beautiful church ceremony…

Q1: Which designer or style did you go for and what was the main reason for it being your winner?

After searching for my dress I chose a delicate lace A line Annasul Y wedding gown which was the first dress I tried on! I loved the fit of the dress and the little row of white buttons that I always wanted on the back of The dress. I always wanted a slightly vintage but classic feel to my dress and it delivered on all of these!

Q2 : Did you buy any accessories from us? If so, what were they?

The Ivory Secret had everything I needed to complete the look I wanted. I choose a beautiful vintage (and just the right amount of sparkle) belt to match my cathedral veil (Joyce Jackson, Phoenix veil) and Rachel Simpson shoes (style name Mimosa) – which were fab for dancing the night away in!



Q3 : How did you feel in your outfit on the big day?

AMAZING. After some time since my last fitting, I was nervous about how the dress would look again. However, as soon as I slipped into the dress I felt a mix of emotions as I was a bride about to get married!

Q4 : How many dresses did you try on before you found ‘the one’?

I can’t remember the exact number but my dress was the first I tried on. I think subconsciously I was comparing others to this dress.

Q5 : What did you enjoy most about your experience at The Ivory Secret?

My whole experience. Eleanor was truly fab in making me feel beautiful and my experience special from having tea in her granny’s tea cups to helping my mum also find accessories for her dress.



Q6 : Do you have any other thoughts or feedback about your experience ?

Only that I wish I could do it all again! I’ve been lucky enough to go back as my sister has also found her dress at The Ivory Secret as well.

Q7 : Do you have any wedding suppliers you would recommend to other brides-to-be?

Rachel Simpson for her beautiful shoes.
