Sample Sale Steal

Hello, all you lovely brides to be.

You are all very warmly invited to one of our fantastic bridal sample sales! This will take place on February the 19th 2017! With dreamy designer dresses just waiting for you to fall in love with them. A selection of bridal designers like Pronovias, Stella York, Ian Stuart and even our in-house designer Liliana Dabic. Why not come along and bag yourself that designer wedding dress you have always dreamed of! Our sample wedding dresses range from a UK 10 up to a UK 16.

At La Novia we pride ourselves on taking the up most of care to all of our dresses. Some of the samples have been tried on more than others, they may have a few minor flaws. Do not let this put you off ladies! Our very talented in-store dressmakers will do their absolute best to ensure that all of our sale gowns look as good as new!

If you think you have found ‘the one’ that ticks all your boxes, but requires a few tweaks to make it that little bit more personal to you, our dressmaking magicians will happily re-style it or alter it for you.

Thinking about the extra cost of repairs?
Included within our sale price is the dry-cleaning of the dress and any repairs that may need done. Your dream dress will be as good as new at no extra charge!

With our last few Sample sales being busy periods for us, we predict this one will be similar! The store may be bustling with brides, so our stylists may nip in and out of your appointment to help other brides. Don’t let your dream dress slip out of your hands, grab it while you can!

A few of my sample favourites include:


Yensen wedding dress- 2015 collection by Pronovias

This beautiful embossed wedding dress stands out from the crowd. With the buttoned panel at the back creating that subtle detailing. Nothing takes away from the gorgeous floral embossed pattern on the dress. The perfect ball gown for you brides!


Liliana Dabic – Mojito

Looking for something a little bit sweeter? With the sweetheart neckline, it is a very chic wedding dress. Lace detailing showing under the skirt, giving it an edge that just draws me in. Add a bolero of your choice to make the dress more personalised and change the entire look!


Evangelista – Ian Stuart

Don’t be put off by the sparkle! This amazing dress flatters the figure and shows off the curves! Beautifully slim line lace dress with a tulle overlay. With a slight gold overtone, you will be the bell of the ball in this gown.

Our sample sale appointments are very informal. Walk-ins are welcome but we are taking bookings, ensuring a fitting room space is available. We will also have a shared changing area on the day. Please note that all sample dresses are sold as seen and non-refundable.

Pop in & let the magic of the dresses speak for themselves

My name is Emma, I am currently undergoing a placement at La Novia Bridal, counting towards my degree. I study Fashion Design with Textiles at Huddersfield University and currently in my third year. Placement in La Novia Bridal boutique allowed me to experience all aspects of bridal fashion design – from sketching and sewing to the styling appointments with our brides to be. I am loving my time working with the La Novia team, learning tricks of the trade from each and every one of them.

To get myself more familiar with the bridal scene, I have been researching the trends for 2017 and put them into a blog post for you all to read. The 2017 trends reflect our collection in store very well.

Classy and Romantic, Blush is going to be that Elegantly Sexy shade up and coming this year. Perfect for modern brides wishing to make a statement.

At La Novia we are keeping up with the trends and offering you blushing brides to be a sneak-peek at our very own pink-hue Wedding Dress. Designed by our in-house designer Liliana Dabic.

Skin-baring choices are featured in store, varying from a Deep Plunge V Neck for the more daring brides, to illusion back bridal dresses. If you love the intricate lace detail flowing from the front of your bridal gown and continued onto the back without it being covered, the illusion back dresses are a perfect fit for you. Creating that modern look with skin on show, while feeling fully covered and confident. Low backs are also in brides to be so if you are not a fan of the illusion back then do not panic we have you covered!

After a more contemporary look? 
An Off the Shoulder option for brides wishing to make a slight statement. This can be created and personally adapted to the bride. A wide range of Boleros can offer this style that instantly changes a dress for a more individual look. A bolero can also provide more coverage while still showing off the beautiful cut of our gowns and the lace detailing showing upon your skin. Working closely with our Head designer it allows the brides to adapt elements, from sleeve length to the style of the boleros.

Feathers are coming your way! In the form of shrugs all the way to features on your dress. You could add them onto the cuffs of a bolero for a more seasonal look in the colder months.

Big and Bold hairpieces are back in. Birdcages are making a comeback, think big, think sparkles, and think Bridal! Made in store allows them to fit your wedding dress perfectly. Look no further for that statement headpiece.

Not a fan of birdcages? Hair combs and hair-vines are also a brilliant way to add adornment into your bridal look.

Keep your eyes peeled for some spectacular trains and veils hitting the bridal scene. 3D floral, sparkles, plain edge- you name it, you’ll find it this year.

Embellished dresses strike again with 3D Floral back in for another bridal season!

Dare to try something different from the world of Bridal? High neck, Plunging neck or even a halter neck? Give it a go and fall in love with one of the new Wedding looks.

Pronovias sample sale

We’re so excited for our upcoming Pronovias sample sale on Sunday the 24th of April. We’ve picked out a small selection of what will be on offer. If you’re looking for timeless romance and simple elegance then Pronovias dresses are what you’re after. From sleek body-hugging silhouettes to dramatic ball gown designs, our collection of wedding dresses has something for every bride.

The ‘Belwe’ dress silhouette creates an elegant and timeless look. This sheath fits closely to the contours of the body and elongates the body. The lace on the upper bodice and waist band feature ensures a flattering focus on the waist.

The ‘Barcli’ satin Pronovias bridal gown is a sophisticated take on the princess ball gown dress. Nothing is lost without the sparkle as a delicate lace bodice and bow belt create the perfect dress. The fuller skirt will give you the fairy tale style dress of your dreams.

Always striking, the ‘Madrid’ fishtail highlights every curve and accentuates the figure. The lace and gemstone applique detail on the front and back give just the right amount of sparkle and the plunging V back feature is a detail that makes all the difference.

Herera by Oscar Lili – wedding dress of the week

This week’s wedding dress is nothing short of a show stopper. Hundreds of beads adorn lace over a layer of silk satin. Influenced by the art deco movement of the 1920s, the intricate and skillful creation of this gown is outstanding. The gown features a strapless neckline and a small train. The simple structure of this gown works perfectly with the heavy beading.

Try this dress on in store by making an appointment at La Novia Edinburgh.

Happy birthday La Novia!

As a bridal designer celebrating a milestone anniversary is always very special. 2016 marks our 20 year anniversary as a business based in Edinburgh, Scotland. Over the decades a lot has changed in the studio, I’ve enjoyed looking back and reflecting on what we have achieved over the years.

Working with brides is exciting and challenging. Designing bridal wear for unique personalities constantly drives innovation and new ideas. The past 20 years have been nothing short of amazing!

The bridal industry has changed dramatically from when I opened my first store based in Morningside. Brides are far more aware of fashion and trends, they’re not afraid to experiment with new concepts and that keeps us on our toes. Each season I introduce new fabrics and details to ensure we continue to inspire. It’s an absolute joy to meet and work so closely with our brides; it’s an incredible journey for both of us.

The elements which are essential in my designs and what I’ve strived to perfect over the years is the finish and quality of my gowns. Working with a close knit team ensures each bridal gown is made entirely by hand. Brides love this personal touch and can feel the difference, this is so important to me. Our design studio is located at our Queen Street boutique which means I can be involved in the entire process. I look forward to seeing where the next 20 years takes us…
