Huge congratulations to Sophie and Lewis! After being forced to postpone their wedding for over a year, Sophie finally managed to walk down the aisle in our stunning Lily dress, from the Oscar Lili collection, made-to measure at our sister boutique, La Novia. It is such a joy for the La Novia bridal team to see all our brides finally able to go ahead with their weddings! We are also always excited to see photos of our dresses on the big day with make-up, flowers, bridesmaids…the whole show! Sophie looked exquisite in the classic, luxurious lace Lily wedding gown. This dress is designed for the bride who is seeking a classic lace look, whilst also having that contemporary touch- in the Lily dress, this is reflected in the off shoulder sweetheart neckline bodice. Our Oscar Lili bridal collection strives to combine classic looks with modern touches. Our custom made service enables our brides to truly have the look of their dreams, whether this be a dress, a two-piece or trousers! Delving into the finer details of the Lily gown, the material used is double crepe and lace with added cotton floral appliques. The boned shape of the bodice is made to fit your body, and has structure as well as built in made to measure bra cups. Sophie opted to have a scooped v shaped back, again, as this is couture bridal wear, you have freedom to decide how revealing/ covered you want to be. We go by the mantra- to look good, you have to feel it! The A-line skirt running into this glorious train is the real showstopper of the Lili gown,which runs into such an intricate and detailed floral train. The skirt also has multiple tulle layers which will give the wedding gown movement and keep its fullness throughout the day. This wonderfully huge train is also easily pinned up for your evening service- via a simple hook and eye system which can leave you worry free! Thank you again Sophie for sending us your gorgeous wedding photos- it was an honour to make this Lily wedding dress! To all our new brides-to-be, the Oscar Lili design team is ready to meet you and help bring your bridal vision to life!

Made- to- measure, luxury and sophistication are three words that spring to mind when describing the Oscar Lili Helena wedding dress. The Helena wedding gown combines modern romance with vintage, classic beauty. The exquisite top features sheer full-length sleeves and a high neckline which creates an elegant bridal look. The intricate botanical lace embroidery over the bodice brings that fun, fresh look to a more traditional top shape. The scalloped edging around the neck and sleeve cuffs ties the whole look together with a delicate pearl beaded finish. At Oscar Lili bridal, we know how hard it can be to choose a dress shape, but with the Helena gown you can have a V neckline and back without having to forgo lace detail or long sleeves. What’s more, having couture bridal wear allows you to make any changes- for example: change a full-length sleeve for a three-quarter- we always want our wedding gowns to reflect the style of every individual bride. For instance, if you love a bit of lace but want less coverage then you can choose the cute Helena cap sleeve bolero to match instead. We have something for every bride and this bespoke service means you and only you will have a unique, one-time made dress! The sleek, fishtail dress shape is made from a double crepe material which feels like heaven against the skin, and is easy to transport wherever your wedding location may be! The detachable bolero is also ideal for most weather and ceremonies, so you can have sleeves during the day and reveal a sleek sleeveless dress for dancing in the evening. What could be better than two looks in one. The finishing touch to the Helena wedding dress lies in the gorgeous stream of satin buttons running all the way down the back, trailing into a long, stunningly detailed cotton lace train. The floral and leafy material (same as bodice) is phenomenally ornate and will bring a queenly feel to your bridal look. Oscar Lili bridal studio looks forward to welcoming all new brides-to- be to enjoy a personalised one-to-one consultation!

This week’s blog post is dedicated to the beloved bridal two piece- specifically the gorgeous Ashley skirt and Jen top. Our bridal separates were originally created to offer fashion-forward brides an alternative to a traditional wedding dress- and are available to try on at our Oscar Lili bridal shop. There are many reasons why having a bridal two piece is a fabulous wedding option! Firstly, and most importantly, simply because it looks super stylish and chic. Secondly, having a separate bodice and skirt gives you more opportunities for re-wearing (Oscar Lili is committed to being a sustainable bridal designer, and is always striving to create designs using eco-friendly fabrics). Lastly, although we have created specific looks- such as shown in these photos- you can chop and change between all our two-piece options, ensuring you find the perfect bridal combo for your day. The clean-cut shape of the Jen bodice creates a sweet, romantic look, the off-shoulder scoop neckline is very flattering and allows you to be versatile with your jewellery, hair style and or hair piece/ veil. What’s more, the double crepe fabric of this bodice feels so luxurious and smooth against the skin and is designed to mould to your figure perfectly. The integrated bra cups and boning structure will also make sure you feel secure and comfortable throughout the day! The Ashley A-line skirt is floral, floaty, and fun. The under-layer fabric of the skirt is made of satin which feels light-weight and gentle against the skin. The drama effect of the skirt comes with the textured, tulle lace over layer- embroidered with 3D floral appliques. The Ashley train is short and has a zip fastening, however, as with all our couture bridal wear, you can tweak anything to suit your unique bridal dream look. All our Oscar Lili two- pieces are made in our Edinburgh bridal studio, crafted from luxury, sustainable fabrics which are customised to a bride’s exact requirements and fit! We hope this Ashley and Jen look has given you 2022/ 2023 wedding inspiration and encouraged you to mix and match our bridal separates to find your unique bridal look!
One of the staple wedding designers we stock at La Novia Edinburgh is the gorgeous Etoile- the latest bridal range from Elysee (formerly known as Enzoani). Etoile wedding designs are inspired by Neoclassical art and architecture, which is evident in the modern, feminine and versatile wedding collection the brand has curated. Our bridal studio Edinburgh has a variety of Etoile wedding dresses waiting to be tried on, but just to give you a glimpse at what's on offer, let's take a deeper delve into the exquisite- Etoile B20-05. The brand name itself -Elysee- is adopted from Ancient Greek, this Grecian inspiration is obviously reflected in the B20-05 wedding gown. The theme of this dress is unmistakably goddess meets boho bridal. Eyes are drawn to the huge amount of intricate detailing of the dress, yet it's fun and free flowing at the same time. This wedding look is perfect for a bride scouting a boho-esque, fashion-forward dress which will accentuate your figure and shape the body perfectly. The sheer intricacy of the stunning top and sleeves is outstanding- a mixture of geometric lines, floral appliques and aztec inspired lace create a visual masterpiece that will dazzle your guests to say the least! The short belle sleeves and V shaped neckline and back give the wedding gown that free spirited, laid-back vibe, creating a perfect look for a warm location or a beach wedding. The fishtail shape is super complimentary, and this particular dress has a striking lightweight tulle skirt which flows down into a dramatic train. This floaty, dreamlike feel to the gown adds to the overall relaxed, boho look. In terms of sizing, our dressmaking service Edinburgh is designed to do all your alterations in house, meaning the whole process can be done without your dress leaving La novia bridal boutique- ideal! The Elysee Etoile collection has been very popular among our Edinburgh brides, and is definitely worth trying on for those brides seeking 2022/2023 wedding inspiration!
If you’re looking for something different, the Adele wedding gown is the one for you. Adele is unique, romantic but with a vintage- retro feel. Our Oscar Lili wedding dresses are designed for the adventurous bride who wants to feel bridal but has a look that is anything but ordinary. The Adele wedding dress starts with a highly ornate lace bodice, made up of original, boho-esque fabric. The pattern intertwines delicately across the bodice, meeting in a deep V at the front, this floral design is contrasted with the crochet edging detail running down the bust, this illusion elongating the body. The same fabric is used in the gorgeous discrete waistband which creates a distinctive bridal look, experimenting with pattern and shape. If the front of Adele’s bodice wasn’t eye-catching enough, a special mention must be given to the showstopper back. The triangle cutouts in the back tied together with a sweet, understated bow make a statement; a fresh look to round off this unique top. The dress continues into a flowing A-line skirt, giving this wedding gown a truly bridal feel. The floaty, dream-like fabric provides the perfect contrast to the intricate top of the gown, running into a free-flowing train that will move graciously with your body. Adele is the best of both worlds- unmistakably bridal with a modern, boho twist. At Oscar Lili bridal studio we pride ourselves in offering couture bridal wear which guarantees a perfect fit and means brides can add their own personal touches. This can be done through tweaking the dress design itself, or through adding bridal accessories, headpieces and veils. What’s more, having an Oscar Lili designer wedding dress means that your gown will not only be made with luxury materials but having it made-to-measure is the most sustainable way of creating a dress. Future brides, if you are on the hunt for your 2022/2023 wedding dress, Adele could be the one for you…Oscar Lili bridal Edinburgh has a full range of dresses and two pieces waiting to be tried on, we look forward to meeting you!
For the brides who are looking for a dreamy, relaxed, and whimsical look- Oscar Lili’s ‘Katie’ is the wedding gown you’re after. Katie is the perfect combination of boho chic, whilst remaining bridal and romantic. As we draw to the end of 2021, we know that future brides are looking for 2022 (and 2023) wedding inspiration, we hope to give you some here! Let us start with the bodice- featuring such an array of intricate detail you won’t know what to fall in love with first. The dainty polka dot pattern met with highly- detailed intertwining criss-cross patterns offer a refreshing, fun take on traditional lace. This is what Oscar Lili bridal studio is all about, always striving to provide you with cutting edge bridal designs, created from high-quality sustainable materials. The mirror effect of the deep V- neckline and sheer V shaped back provides a symmetrical balanced effect among the embroidered design. The three-quarter sleeves are the perfect length, giving you coverage without restricting movement. Eyes will be drawn to the contrasting applique sleeve edging- an elegant final touch to this dainty, soft material. This A-line wedding dress creates an effortlessly beautiful look, as the bodice flows into a freely floating silhouette, giving you a very comfortable and complementary dress shape. The luxurious chiffon material will move graciously with your body, finishing with a modest puddle train for your walk down the aisle. Whether you are being married on a beach, a barn or a farm, Katie is a perfect, distinctive wedding day look. You can also have fun with bridal accessories, taking inspiration from our latest shoot by adding a floral crown, or for those chasing something more traditional, we have a varied selection of headpieces and couture bridal veils. As all our Oscar Lili designs - these bespoke wedding dresses are fitted and altered exactly to your measurement and shape. We are proud to be a sustainable bridal designer, who use high-quality fabrics and ensure material waste is minimised.

We wish all the congratulations to our lovely bride Bethan and her husband Craig who had the happiest micro-wedding back in May. Bethan was a dream to work with and really embraced the freedom she had to customise her dress with us. Initially looking for bridal separates we tried lots of different options before coming to the conclusion that we would make her a dress combing all of her favourite design features. She opted for this pretty and modern A-line style with the most fun tulle skirt covered in large sequinned flowers to give her a truly unique bridal style. The minimal boat neck bodice gives this dress the perfect balance of modern elegance and Bethan looks so so fab!

It was a dream come true being able to mix and match tops and skirts to be able to design my own bespoke wedding dress which was just perfect for me. There is such a diverse range of dresses and lots of beautiful styles for a modern bride which I loved. Liliana was so helpful and I felt amazing and comfortable in my dress on my wedding day. My dress was really ‘me’ and felt so personal - I couldn’t have loved it more! Our wedding was small due to covid-19 restrictions however it ended up being more special than we could have imagined. We are planning to have an anniversary party next year with all the people we couldn’t have and I can’t wait to wear my dress again! Thank you!I should also mention that I loved the eco-conscious focus of Oscar Lili and it was really important to me that my wedding dress was made from sustainable fabric!
This gorgeous Oscar Lili bride Wow-ed us with these atmospheric wedding photos (Juliette Lichman Photography) which captured so many beautiful details, as well as this couple’s joy all through their day. Amanda & James have the biggest smiles in all of their photos, and we had all the feels getting an insight into their lovely day when trying to choose a few of our favourite images. Amanda looks beyond stunning in her Stella York (6979) wedding dress, which she chose in a sparkling soft blush shade to give her a twist on a traditional bridal style. This strapless design with its fishtail silhouette fitted Amanda to perfection and gave her a bit of glam for her special day. The baroque ivory lace overlay emphasises the lace design detail and this mix of tones look absolutely perfect with the pink and neutrals of Amanda’s huge bouquet from Feather Grass Florals - isn’t it just stunning! Their intimate ceremony was elegant and perfectly styled with modern foliage, and the rustic vibe of their venue allowed for a relaxed and romantic setting. Despite having to postpone due to covid, we’re so pleased this couple eventually got to have their beautiful day and we wish them all the congratulations from the Oscar Lili team!
