How would you describe your Eleganza Experience?
Well, my Eleganza Experience all started with a very warm welcome and a glass of Prosecco.Read more
When a close family friend offered to do my flowers I gave her free rein, just asking for them to be full of bright colours and not too perfect. This idea ran throughout the rest of the wedding; we didn’t have a specific theme as such, just a relaxed and fun day filled with lots of family, friends and laughter. Thankfully the sun shone so everyone could enjoy the outdoors and all the games we put on.Read more
I had visited a number of wedding dress shops before my appointment with Eleganza and I can honestly say that my experience here was on a completely different level. The atmosphere in the shop is magical and everything about the place; from the decor to the stylists, made me feel like a proper bride. My stylist knew exactly which dresses would suit me and it came across as if she genuinely cared about helping me find my dream dress.Read more
I had an appointment with Lisa and it was by far the best wedding dress shopping experience I had. I wasn’t looking forward to my appointment because I had attended a few bad ones beforehand.
Lisa was truly amazing at helping me find my perfect dress.
How would you describe your Eleganza Experience?
I had a wonderful experience, from the moment I walked through the door I was made to feel special. Everyone in your store is friendly and welcoming and nothing was too much to ask! I was also really impressed with all communications whilst waiting for my dress to arrive.
Lisa helped me find my dress – she was so friendly and instantly made me feel at ease. When I came to Eleganza I had an idea of what kind of dress I wanted and ended up choosing a dress which was the opposite of what I had imagined. Lisa knew what style and shape of dresses would suit me an flatter my figure. She suggested I try on the Suzanne Neville dress at the end of the appointment and I’m so glad she did. It was the first dress that I tried on that made me feel like a ‘bride’ and I knew almost instantly it was the one. This wouldn’t have been possible without Lisa!
Tell us all about your Suzanne Neville gown!
When I tried on this dress for the first time I felt like it was made for me! It suited my shape and style so perfectly. It is simple yet elegant and that’s what makes it so beautiful.
Tell us more about your big day!
We got married on 19 May 2018 – the same day as the royal wedding!! We were so lucky with the weather; the sun shone for us all day. We got married at Melrose Parish Church in the Borders. The ceremony was one of our favourite parts of the day.
We then went on to Wedderburn Castle where we had the drinks reception on the lawn. The Wedding Breakfast and dance were held in the barns which was a more relaxed atmosphere!! We had the most wonderful day and wish we could do it all over again!!
What was the most memorable moment of your wedding day?
Walking down the aisle towards Gregor and seeing all my family and friends.
Do you have a favourite picture from your wedding day?
I can’t pick!! I love them all!
Do you have any advice for future brides visiting Eleganza Sposa?
Have an open mind and be willing to take advice and recommendations from the staff, they know the dress collection well and how different dresses will suit different people!
I honestly had the most wonderful experience at Eleganza – from the initial consultation to picking up the dress – I cannot thank you enough. A special thanks to Lisa who was able to encourage me to consider looking at different styles of dresses and helped me pick my dream dress!

Eleganza Real Bride Holly’s wedding was definitely one to remember from the start with an impromptu fire alarm before the ceremony!My first appointment was great. I booked in very early, about 18 months before my wedding because I was nervous that I wouldn’t find a dress I loved! I was made to feel so at ease and comfortable. The dresses were all absolutely beautiful!
I ended up getting my dress on my second appointment at Eleganza Sposa at the Martina Liana trunk show. The stylist was so incredible and actually picked out dresses I would never have chosen. I remember when she brought ‘my’ dress into the changing room, I’d previously bypassed the gown but she assured me I’d love it. When I put it on I instantly knew it was the one! Ever since, my experience at Eleganza has been amazing and I can’t thank the team enough!
My fiancé proposed after 9 years together at a rooftop in Barcelona. We are currently on honeymoon doing a tour of California then onto Hawaii. It’s needed after planning a wedding for 2 years!My dress is not completely what I expected to like.It wasn’t ‘white/ ivory’ and it had sparkles – two of the elements I had initially said I didn’t want. The lace detail was beautiful and the sparkle made it stand out.Just shows the consultants know best.
I love soft, light colours and a romantic feel. Blush pink and rose gold are my two favourite colours and I tried to incorporate them into my wedding day!It was the best day ever from start to finish. My husband and guests loved my dress and complimented it all day and night. Can’t thank all the suppliers enough for making my dream day perfect!As my car pulled up to Glasgow University the fire alarm went off and all guest had to be evacuated and I had to escape unseen. Thankfully it was dealt with quickly but I won’t forget it in a hurry and actually made us all laugh.The best bridal shop I visited with the best dresses and service!
