Hi all, just a quick update on what's going on here in The Attic Bridalwear Boutique. We are delighted to announce that we will be having an Elbeth Gillis Designer Weekend on August 19th and 20th.

What is a designer weekend I hear you ask? Well basically on the Friday 19th and Saturday 20th of August 2016 we will have our South African designer, Elbeth Gillis' two, full 2017 Collections in The Attic, for the first time. Brides can come in for one on one consultations with Orlaith where they can try on the new collection's at their ease. Discounts will be available on ALL Elbeth Gillis' dresses that weekend (including those from previous collections) so this is an opportunity not to be missed! As we won't be stocking the entire two collections in The Attic, this is your chance to see the two collections in full.

This year Elbeth Gillis has given us an extra treat by not releasing one but two 2017 Collections, both very different but equally as elegant. "Luxury" is sophisticated and sensual, while "Milk and Honey" is all about separates, simpler shapes and having fun with your dress. We are very excited at The Attic for both collections!

The Attic's Tips:
Book early. The weekend can fill up very quickly (it's by appointment only and one bride at a time) plus the earlier you book, the easier it is to get your choice of time.
Support Team. On the day we will be on hand to help with any questions/ opinions needed, but it can be a good idea to bring along someone who will be honest but you trust for that second opinion. However, bringing a large group can be very overwhelming so our advice is to keep the numbers to a minimum.
What to bring: Wear minimum makeup, no tan and it's a good idea to bring a pair of heels the height you think you would like to wear on the day (not to worry we have some in store if you forget)
Mix and Matching: Be ready to start mix and matching. Elbeth Gillis' "Milk and Honey" collection is all about playing around with styles to find your perfect dress. There are four different skirts and three different tops (along with lace over layers) to chose from.
