The start of a New Year always starts with the good old fashioned ‘January Sales’ where you can bag a bargain and for some Christmas Day and New Years Eve is a popular time to ask the love of your life ‘Will you marry me?’. Which means it’s time to go ‘WEDDING DRESS SHOPPING’!
We asked award winning Bridal Retailer Julia Carr for some wedding dress tips and also more information on her January Sale that is currently on at Elegance Bridal Studio situated at 2, Eastgate, Barnsley.

“Congratulations to all the Christmas and New Year engagement couples” says Julia, Welcome to the most exciting part of planning your wedding, the search for the dress of your dreams ! We recommend that before you start making appointments and trying gowns on, you ideally need to have set your date and booked your Church and or Venue which will then help you choose the perfect gown for your wedding.
Don’t worry about not knowing what style of wedding dress you are looking for, that’s our job, we will help you choose the perfect gown that will compliment your wedding and most importantly make you look and feel like a million dollars, the only important thing to consider is the budget for your dress and what you feel comfortable spending, but don’t forget to include accessories, there is nothing worse than spending a few hundred pounds on your dream dress to then not be able to afford to buy quality accessories, that match the quality of your gown, after all that will be captured on your wedding pictures forever.
January is a key month for us, we have new styles arriving along with heavily reduced ex-display gowns that we have to say goodbye to, to create the rail space for our new stock, so if you have a limited budget or you are getting married very soon then our January Sale is just for you!
You will find beautiful ex-display gowns from only £99! with nothing over £599, in various styles and sizes from a size 6 upwards, all our gowns are treated with lots of TLC, which means you will find a good quality gown in excellent condition at a great price along with further reductions on Tiara’s, Veils, Shoes & Jewellery all available to take home the very same day.
Our boutique works by appointment only, so making your appointment beforehand is crucial to avoid any disappointment, we only see one bride at any one time which guarantees you our one to one personal service and un-divided attention. Appointments are available Tuesday – Saturday with late nights available and we also have an in-house alterations service for any final adjustments.
One really important piece of advice is to keep your entourage to a minimum of no more than two other people that you bring with you, shopping for your dream dress in numbers will only hinder you, too many opinions can create an unpleasant experience and can test the most safest of friendships, after all its important how you feel and look in your dream dress, not what you think others want or tell you to wear. Keeping your wedding dress a secret until the day will provide you with the WOW reaction you want and will also prevent anyone trying to copy your style.
So now you have all the top tips to ensure you have a bridal experience you will treasure forever and of course we guarantee that you will receive exactly that in our award winning boutique, we look forward to meeting you and showing you our beautiful gowns. Julia x
