Celebrating 25 years of Eleganza Sposa Competition Blog

We are thrilled to announce that in October, Eleganza Sposa will celebrate twenty-five years anniversary. Since 1992, Eleganza Sposa has led the way in exclusively launching many incredible designers in Scotland, incorporating a luxurious Italian inspired craftsmanship, and providing brides from all over the world with the ultimate luxury bridal experience.

It all began when Dr Anna Cirignaco was inspired in the early nineties while holidaying in southern Italy. She visited a bridal atelier and was mesmerised with the gowns. They were completely different to the bridal gowns in the UK. She seen a gap in the market for fashionable, high quality bridal gowns and, from there, Eleganza Sposa was born. Dr Anna’s Italian heritage and her love anything luxurious and glamorous is infectious and has very much influenced Eleganza Sposa over the past twenty-five years. Our slogan is “l’arte del vestire” translated the art of dressing. Everyone has beauty within their grasp that’s what we specialise in –  highlighting every brides’ beauty.

Every little girl dreams of their wedding day and finding the perfect dress is all part of the process…. Eleganza Sposa you exceeded my expectations and more.

I trailed around numerous shops and tried on countless dresses hoping to find “the one”. Which, almost pushed me towards purchasing the wrong dress and settling for something that just wasn’t right for me. That was until I walked through the doors of Eleganza. It was absolutely breathtaking and restored my faith in experiencing that ‘magical’ moment that every bride to be dreams of… when they finally ‘say Yes’ to the perfect dress.

On my first visit, I attended was a Suzanne Neville meet the designer day, where I tried on designs from Suzanne’s new collection. I fell in love with the dress “Coubert”. It was a timeless and elegant design. I had the pleasure of meeting Suzanne in person, who was so kind and humble, taking her time to ensure she spoke to all the future brides. This personal touch made the experience all the more special.

I cannot thank Anna and her team at Eleganza enough, not only did you make me feel like a princess at every appointment. You helped to create memories with my mum, mother-in-law and bridesmaids which I will never forget.
Laura, thank you for your help and kindness, you really were amazing.

I would recommend all brides to be to visit Eleganza sposa, it truely is the best shop ever! I am eternally thankful for the dress of my dreams and the memories that will last a lifetime.

I just wanted to share a few pictures of my wedding dress with you that I bought it from you this year, it’s a Martina Lianna gown. I absolutely loved the dress from the minute I added it to my love list and I honestly cannot thank you all enough for helping me pick it out. The day was so special and my consultant was so kind and made me feel a million dollars in my dress.

I cannot thank you all enough for all the help you gave me in choosing my dress! I had a screenshot of my dream dress for about a year, and once I started looking for my dress, I found out it was Eleganza Sposa that had that said dress!!
I can’t thank you all enough I had the best day and felt amazing in my dress!
I’m not sure if she remembers me but if you could pass a special thanks to Lisa who helped me with my first fitting. I’m hoping she’ll remember what she did for me and I cannot thank her enough. She made my day!

Eleganza Sposa was the first bridal shop I visited and the last. The experience was all I dreamed of and much more. I instantly fell in love with a bodysuit but couldn’t find the dream skirt that I had imagined. When I was asked if I would like to design my own skirt I couldn’t refuse. My dress was perfect and I received so many compliments. The service at Eleganza was fantastic.

The dress was everything I could have wished for , I loved it so much and felt amazing. I got so many of compliments on my dress and veil throughout the day.
I could not fault my experience with Eleganza, from buying the dress, to the fittings and taking my dress away, the service was amazing and so personal. My sales consultant was Lisa and she was amazing from start to finish, she couldn’t do enough for me. I would 100 % recommend Eleganza to any future brides!

We had decided to get married abroad where our families are from but I was very worried about the different fashion and style of wedding dresses between here and the Middle East. Everything else I knew would fall together and be organised to perfection but the dress was worrying me. I booked an appointment at Eleganza Sposa in the hope that I would simply have a better idea of what style of dress I would like but the girls at Eleganza were fantastic! I not only found a dress I loved but it was within my budget and absolutely stunning. They were extremely patient with me and it was at that moment I realised I was going to be a bride! I had been told that the whole experience of dress shopping was quite stressful but that was not my experience at all. It was magical and I enjoyed every second of it!!
I had shown some wedding pictures to the girls I teach and they were drowning me with compliments on the dress, one even wanted me to keep it for when she gets married. I’ll have to think about that one… I don’t think I can part with it now.
Thank you so much to the Eleganza team for helping to make our big day turn into a dream come true!
