Wedding Shopping Heaven: Bobby Pin Boutique Launches At The Aisle Edit
2023 is off to the most exciting of starts for The Bobby Pin, with a shiny national award under our belt and a brand-new bridal accessory collection to shout about. Plus, the opening of a very special wedding shopping destination in the North, which we’re thrilled to be a part of…and that we’re spilling all the details of in this very post!
If you read our last blog post, you’ll know we teased details of our new Bobby Pin Boutique (BPB) collection, a luxury range of trend-led bridal accessories that will be available to buy exclusively from selected bridal boutiques across the UK and overseas.
Well, after a lot of love, graft and (happy!) tears, the collection has made its debut at the launch of an extraordinary bridal shopping destination which is now open for you lucky brides-to-be to enjoy an ultimate girls’ day out at!
Introducing The Aisle Edit
Based in the rural village of Scouthead in Greater Manchester, The Aisle Edit is the magical idea of talented bridal shoe designer Charlotte Mills, who has transformed an 1840s church building into wedding shopping heaven!
Spanning three dreamy floors, the beautifully historic and thoughtfully renovated building has every bridal party need you can think of under one very pretty roof…which includes accessories by yours truly (more on that to come!).
The top floor is home to established Yorkshire bridal boutique brand Dotty Bridal, where brides can find their dream dress, assisted by super-friendly, professional stylists. With designer collections including Allure Couture, Believe By Gaia, Berta - Muse, Pronovias Atelier and Vera Wang, plus Dotty’s very own newly launched label, Nori Ivy, the options are nothing short of swoon-worthy!
On the middle floor, brides and their parties can shop bridesmaid dresses by Rewritten, mother of the bride/groom attire by Harper Laine and by most incredible bridal shoes, bags and hen do dresses by founder Charlotte Mills. This heavenly level also includes the cutest and coolest wedding accessories by Team Hen and a chic Champagne Bar for afternoon tea and refreshments. After all, wedding shopping is thirsty work, right?!
Finally, the ground floor is a haven of the finest finishing touches, with everything from dried flowers to bridal PJs, veils, denim jackets and, of course, wedding hair accessories and jewellery to shop ‘til you drop!
The Bobby Pin Boutique Collection
Our pretty pink display stand at The Aisle Edit features our just-released Bobby Pin Boutique collection. Unlike our other ranges, BPB is stocked exclusively by select bridal boutiques and so isn’t available to buy directly through our website.
Instead, you can visit our fabulous stockists in your local area to see these incredible pieces first-hand, giving you chance to try them on with the help of a professional stylist and make your accessory-buying experience another fun part of your wedding planning journey.
BPB embodies the same elegance and style as our mainline Bobby Pin collections but elevates the luxury further with beautifully crafted and more elaborate pieces designed with modern, style-conscious brides in mind.
This includes will-send-you-weak-at-the-knees floral and sparkle-detailed hair vines, pins, combs, headbands and jewellery reflecting the latest big-day looks. So, get ready for dreamy angel influences, statement earrings, bold bridal headbands and large ethereal designs, plus beautiful ‘twinning’ pieces that can be used to perfectly coordinate your bridesmaids’ accessories with your own.
And talking of bridesmaids…
Bridesmaid Proposal Gifts
If you’ve not yet popped the all-important question to your leading ladies and go-to girls, then we can help make the moment extra special with our bridesmaid proposal gift range.
Featuring stunning jewellery and on-trend hair accessory designs, these beautifully packaged, ready-to-go pressies are ideal whether asking in person or sending a heartfelt proposal in the post.
Choose from gorgeous silver and gold ‘Maid Of Honour’ slogan necklaces with matching designs for maids and minis too. There’s also glittering twinning acrylic ‘bridesmaid’ and ‘flower girl’ statement hairclips, plus the sweetest earring and necklace designs for younger bridesmaids.
