    KEEP CALM - Prom is almost here!

    Prom season is always exciting at Beau Belles! We stock a huge range of gorgeous gowns available straight "off the peg", by designers such as Mori Lee, Gino Cerruti and Mascara. Prices range from £199-£500, and we have a few sale gowns dotted through the rails too.

    We always ask you what school you go to, then we check our list of gowns chosen for that school and ensure that no other girl has chosen the same gown - because who wants to arrive in style, to find out that you're in the same dress as someone else? This includes having the same gown in a different colour because its still way too obvious! 

    Better still, you do not need to pre book an appointment! We reccomend popping by after school, as Saturdays can be SUPER hectic - you want a space to try on, and a member of staff to be available to help you. Unfortunately we cannot hold dresses for you, and once you have chosen "the one" the deposit stands as a first installment towards your final payment, so make sure you aren't going to change your mind as the dress will have to be paid for in full by the date of the prom! We always reccomend bringing the person who is paying for the gown, as it is not only lovely for them to be able to help you choose the one, but also so that you dont miss out on your dress if someone else chooses it before you get them in to put that all important deposit down. 

    Take lots of pictures, and use our Instagram tag, beaubellesprom17 to show off all of your favourites!

    I said YES! Now what?

    If you got proposed to and said "yes!" to your significant other this festive period, then you may be wondering what steps to take! 

    At Beau Belles we always encourage brides to have either booked, or have a very strong decision made on their venue, theme (if you have one) and approximate date before shopping for a gown. Imagine falling in love with a gown perfect for a winter wonderland theme complete with fur bolero, only to choose your venue location to be abroad in the peak summer sun! We also advise giving yourself at the very least a year between engagment and wedding day to give time to get everything organised and booked, so if you want a summer wedding then opt for a 2018 or 2019 date to bag the best venue and days - you might be glad of the extra time and savings. 

    It is best to start dress shopping around a year before your big day. For your actual appointment, we welcome you to bring family and friends, take photos and have fun. Just make sure that you really concentrate on the key details of the gowns and try not to get overwhelmed. Remember - just because one person prefers a different gown to you, it doesnt mean that you should rule it out if you love it! Your gown has to feel right to you when worn, be comfortable and reflect your personality. Too many opinions can complicate the situation, so maybe bring two or three people whos opinions are really important to you, then bring others once you start to narrow it down to the last two or three gowns if you cant make a desision first time round. 

    Standard order times on bridal gowns (and some bridesmaid styles) can take up to 16 weeks. From the first week in January, our estimated delivery time is approximately mid May to beginning of June, however some dresses are availble for earlier delivery and we still have gowns available off the peg in our Designer Outlet. 

    Dont forget to add an extra month for fittings and accessory shopping too! This time is crucial as you want your gown to fit like a dream. 

    A final tip - try not to worry! You will only upset yourself and ruin the experience by getting stressed. If you get to your big day and realise you have forgotten something, the likelyhood is that only you will have noticed it is missing!

    With love, Beau Belles

    Introducing the 8115!

    We have recently recieved a gorgeous new Mori Lee style from the upcoming 2017 collection - and we cant get enough of it! 

    Available in white, ivory, and ivory/champage, this gorgeous lace fishtail features everything that we expected for 2017, including tattoo and applique lace, semi sheer back details, deep V fronts and wide lace hem details. A subtle sparkle and button details down the centre back zipper finish this gown with the most luxurious quality.

    We stock this gown in the ivory colorway, in a (quite generous) size 12, however this gown does come in sizes 4-30! For the petite amongst us, you can also opt for a shorter length should you need at absolutely no extra cost. Order time is between 16 and 20 weeks dependant on order specification, so 2017 brides, dont miss out on this opportunity! 

    Call us on 01332 280609 to book a slot to view this gown, and our extensive collection of styles!
