Smolder with one shoulder

Sexy one shoulder dresses have been on and off the catwalk for eternity but this chic design has been omnipresent on the wedding runway.

Liliana Dabic for La Novia Couture has always liked a one shoulder and many of her couture designs flaunt a sexy little strap or sleeve. We can also add a strap to make any of our strapless dresses into a bespoke one shoulder design…Gorgeous.

A limited number of evening appointments are available for brides to enjoy our exclusive VIP consultation packages. Our VIP package allows brides to have a one to one extended bridal appointment with our director and in-store designer Liliana Dabic. Our VIP brides are spoilt with nibbles and bubbles.

Belt it

The trusty belt has gone from a necessity to an accessory. Once upon a time the belt (big and leathery) was used to hold up an old pair of jeans but now it seems, it is a ‘born again’ accessory breathing life into an outfit.

At La Novia, and more specifically Liliana Dabic Couture, we are noticing that more and more brides are looking to add a belt to the dress. It could be a sash to add a splash of colour to the proceedings or a decorative piece to jazz up the wedding dress for an evening disco.

Another way a belt can be a fail-safe accessory is if you are buying a sample dress. In this day and age budgets are usually smaller than they once were and brides are finding sample dresses, are a great way to get that ‘it’ dress at a bargain price. If you do find yourselves buying a sample dress, which is maybe a bit simpler than you had hoped…then why don’t you just belt it? Add an ornate, decorative or colourful belt to a dress and you literally change its whole personally.

At La Novia we are more than happy to give you a consultation and make up a bespoke belt that can be a stunning accessory to be worn all day. Drop us a line anytime.

The Oxfam Wedding Auction with Ian Stuart

With a successful career spanning over two decades, numerous awards to his name, and clients from across the globe, Ian Stuart is regarded as one of the top bridal wear designers in the world. When Ian was asked to be involved in the Oxfam Wedding project, he jumped at the chance to use his expert skills to support the work of this amazing charity, and offer a priceless experience to one generous bride. He has kindly given one lucky winning bidder the chance to choose their very own dress from the Killer Queen collection as well as have a (money cannot buy) bridal consultation with the designer himself!

Usually reserved for his ‘V.I.P clients’ the winning bidder will have her own private consultation with Ian to choose her wedding dress at his London studio. The bride can use Ian’s talent and expertise to find her perfect gown, as well styling advice and tips for the big day. A truly unique opportunity for fans of the designer while donating to a really great cause.

So get involved with The Oxfam Wedding Auction, become a bidder and you could be wearing your very own Ian Stuart design down the aisle!

Eco wedding dress

At La Novia we support Sustainability and as we look to the future more and more people are adopting ‘greener’ lives and in turn, they want their weddings to reflect this.

At La Novia we make all our dresses on site in our dressmaking studio – none of our dresses are shipped, flown or put in the back of a lorry, our dresses haven’t gained any air miles and we like to think of them as being Carbon Neutral.

Though our couture dresses come in a variety of silks we can source vegan/vegetarian man-made fabrics which will look just as sumptuous but will keep your conscience clear. We can also source a variety of organic fabrics and we are always open to suggestions should you require any other specific needs.

Our Liliana Dabic Couture range is all made to measure and Liliana is more than happy to see you for a consultation to discuss ‘Going Green’.

Lacey Ladies

Lace is that wonderful timeless fabric which gives a wedding dress understated style and sophistication. Lace has been huge on the Catwalk for 2012 and bridal couture has not been too far behind embracing the current romance with lace.

At La Novia we have always been huge fans of lace and many of our couture dresses are made with matching off the shoulder lace boleros which can be kept on or taken off during your reception or before dancing.

Our Popular dress, Paris, is a stunning lace dress with a dropped back and detachable lace train with a stunning vintage broach. Fiona is another La Novia Couture Lace dress which exudes understated glamour. Fiona is strapless but comes with a matching off the shoulder bolero.

Come to the store and try on some lovely lace gowns for yourself!

Beautiful Blooms

A wedding wouldn’t be a wedding without some beautiful blooms. Whatever season you tie the knot and whatever your culture, nationality or religion, fabulous flowers are inevitable on any wedding day.

You might fancy a bouquet that matches the bridesmaids dresses or subtly picks out the colour of the grooms tie or you might want to just go all out and have the church brimming with wild flowers of all shapes and sizes!

At La Novia we can help you match the colour of your button holes to the bridesmaids fur wraps or match your bouquet to a flower girls sash. We can also make you a beautiful headpiece with any number of stunning silk flowers to finish off a crisp white dress.
