With the 2019 'Rose Quartz' collection now in full swing in boutiques across UK and Europe it was time for my first ever Designer Event!!! EEEEK! I was extremely excited to be flying over to Germany to meet with the lovely Corinna from Atelier Ja in Bayreuth and to help her wonderful brides find the dress of their dreams!
On the Friday evening I had a lovely time meeting lots of new brides and learning about the German way of getting hitched and how they do things differently for their big day. Not only do they have one day but they also have a second!!! It is tradition for a bride to have a subtle registry office wedding followed by a big event where they wear their main dress later into married life.
There was lots of bubbly, a very talented band and of course a photo booth!
At Atelier Ja you can find dresses that you won't find anywhere else in the Bayreuth or surrounding areas. Corinna is very careful about picking her designers and only chooses those that offer something different to her brides. Her boutique is beautiful and offers everything a bride may need for her special day. From boho inspired gowns to beautifully delicate back jewellery there is a lot to catch your eye in this shop.
On Saturday Corinna and I met with some beautiful brides who chose their perfect dress and it was amazing to be a part of it with them!! Although we had the barrier of different languages, a reaction speaks a thousand words and it was breathtaking to see the girls in the dress that would later become their one! 🖤
I am excited to be heading down to Tring on the 16th February for my next designer day with the lovely ladies at Confetti Bridal Wear! Check out the event on the Charlotte Balbier Facebook and book your appointment before they're all gone

You will find a page of inspiration under 'Balbier Brides' where you will see all of our previous brides that have loved and shared images of their big day with us! Not only will these give you a good idea of what sort of gown you may fall in love with but also you can gain a lot of inspiration from their photography and settings to maybe incorporate into your wedding.

This year we have also introduced our very own range of Charlotte Balbier accessories from pretty delicate halos to heavy pearl beaded veils, they have been handmade within the UK to compliment all of our gowns. Click here to have a peek.
