Calling all brides-to-be! Have you been lusting after that show-stopping Jenny Packham gown, or dreaming of wearingBlackburn Couturedown the aisle on the BIG DAY, but your budget’s holding you back? Fear not, my wifey-to-be, Blackburn Bridal has a treat in store just for you…

Jenny Packham ‘Lucky’ Size UK 12

The luxury boutique is excited to announce that they will be opening a pop-up sample sale shop for four days in July! The pop-up boutique will take place at No.3 Chiltern Street, London next door to the fabulous Fire House restaurant. Prepare to be met with an incredible selection of modern and contemporary wedding gown samples from the likes of Jenny Packham, Claire Pettibone, Flora Bridal, Blackburn Couture, Clinton Lotter, Divine Atelier and many more… 

“The pop up sale is aimed at brides who have already tried on dresses and have a clear understanding of the style and shape they’re looking for,” explains Russell Blackburn the owner of Blackburn Couture. “It’s geared towards brides who are on a budget that would love the opportunity to purchase a designer gown at a hugely reduced price or those who are working to a short time line and need to find a dress for their wedding.”

With prices ranging from just £500 to £2000, this is one hell of an opportunity, bride-to-be. You’ll be able to purchase ‘off the peg’ from the pop-up boutique and there’ll be a selection of gowns in sizes UK 6 to UK 12 available. 

Russell himself will be working in the pop-up during the four weekends along with one of his stylists so you’ll be sure to get the best advice and a fabulous experience. I myself, had a bridal appointment with Russell when searching for my own wedding dress, and his advice and help was just wonderful! 

However, sample sales aren’t for everyone as Russell explains below:

“The pop up sale really isn’t for brides who are at the start of their dress journey as the gowns aren’t available to order. Instead, dress samples are sold as seen and the sizes we have in the pop-up are the only ones that are available”. Russell advises brides to come prepared to purchase their gown on the day as the gowns cannot be held and will sell out quickly…
