Anyway because Alex now felt ready she wanted to try on some dresses. Wedding dress shopping and Easter don't mix. I researched a few places she could try to go to - be warned Guildford isn't the place to do wedding dress shopping. The selection seems to be Debenhams or Suzanne Neville, not much for a city like Guildford me thinks. The Debenhams dresses seem to be covered in bling which is good if that's what you want, but Alex is in more of a lace frame of mind at the moment. Suzanne Neville was closed, but even worse, had a very tempting reduced rail which we could just make out through the window. So close and yet so far!

Miss Bush carry ranges by Tara Keely, Maggie Sottero, Jenny Packham and Jesus Piero among others.

Well that was Guildford done so now we're moving further afield. There looks to be a nice shop in Winchester which we may visit Brides of Winchester and another in Alresford The White House and of course there is the local shop Amaryllis, but I know Alex also wants to take her bridesmaids and go to the new bridal shop David's in Westfield Stratford City.
However our first expedition (tissues at the ready) will be this Friday when we're going with her gran and aunt to Shropshire County Brides where my mum bought her mother of the bride outfit for my brother's wedding a couple of years ago.
