    One of our most popular wedding dresses in the Oscar Lili studio at the moment is Athénaïs from Élysée bridal design. This is no surprise as this is a statement dress perfect for the bride who is after a romantic and ethereal feel. The figure enhancing design is decorated with baroque lace which is layered over French Chantilly lace. This sculpted sweet heart bodice leads into a mermaid skirt, which is further highlighted by the extra long lace covered train. The detachable tulle sleeves are another romantic touch to the soft tulle of the skirt. The subtle sparkle combined with the lace gives a stunning effect which is surely bound to make any bride feel truly in love. The Athenais comes either with the nude underlay with the ivory lace or entirely in ivory, so the gown can reflect your unique style and compliment every skin tone. If an A-line bridal gown is more your style then Hyancinthe is a great alternative! With its chantilly lace strapless bodice falling into a tulle francais lace fuller skirt, this bridal gown couldn't be dreamier. The subtle sparkle combined with the embroidered floral lace create a modern yet romantic dress for the quintessential bride. The small train creates a modern silhouette, which will make all your photos one to remember. Like the Athénaïs this dress can come in ivory or with the nude underlay, making it super versatile. Both of these gorgeous dresses can be found at Oscar Lili so get in touch at info@oscarlili.co.uk to make your appointment or order your dress today!

    In our opinion a floral design will always be a classic. The Eve design is so gorgeous we had to make it into separates and a dress! The Eve design is perfect for those having a gorgeous outside wedding or just love anything to do with botanicals. The Eve wedding dress is a stunning V neck style with the back of the dress mirroring the V. The gorgeous twist of this dress is the back is entirely covered in the chiffon overlay, with the front of the top made from the double crepe. The structure of the top creates a flattering shape which falls into the full a-line skirt. The silk lining of the skirt allows for easy movement for the bride to move around on her special day. If you want to match the bridal top or skirt with another Oscar Lili creation this is also possible. The top and skirt are equally as stunning by themselves! They can of course be paired together if bridal separates are more your style. To complete the look the matching bolero adds a beautiful touch, again this can be worn with the Eve dress, top or skirt, or with any other Oscar Lili design. It can truly become your design! If you want to come try on any of these pieces just get in touch at info@oscarlili.co.uk and take a look at our Etsy to shop the collection online.  Eve Ivory Deep V-neck Lace back Bridal Top in Luxury Double | Etsy Eve A-Line Ivory Gathered Bridal Wedding Separates Skirt in | Etsy

    If you’re looking for something different from a traditional wedding dress, have you thought about a skirt and bridal top? Here at Oscar Lili we have so many styles of skirt with different bridal tops to mix and match so you can truly make your look unique. For the 1920s inspired bride the Jen bridal skirt is perfect. The A-line skirt made from Ivory crepe makes this skirt super easy to move in and is also very flattering. The fringe moves along with you, so when you are dancing the dashing white sergeant the fringe sways along too. The small train makes it easy to move around in too. The Jen skirt can be paired with any top, depending on your style. If you want even more fringe the matching Jen cape will add an extra flare! For those dreamy brides out there, the Erica skirt may be the one. The light chiffon fabric covered with the feather effect overskirt creates a relaxed and bohemian vibe. The subtle sparkle combined with the gorgeous feathers will make any bride float through their day. This super flattering chiffon and tulle skirt, which is underlined with high quality satin creates the bohemian dream skirt. For the classic bride the Davina skirt is a must have. The effortless A-line skirt made from a double crepe in ivory with a beautiful chiffon overlay makes for a classic design. This bridal skirt truly goes with any style, so you can make this your own.

    We at Oscar Lili are very excited to share the new 2021 bridal collection for all the future brides to be! There is something to suit each bride, and one of our new favourites is the Una wedding dress. It is perfect for all the boho brides out there. Its floral design is perfect for a rustic or beach wedding, think the Cow Shed in Crail or Harvest Moon near Tyninghame, East Lothian.  With its simple floor length design, the real statement is the embroidery on the bodice and skirt. The V-neckline with the low back adds a fun touch while having a classic silhouette. The back is accessorised with covered buttons which add a sophisticated element, along with the satin belt to emphasise the waist. Each individual bride could add a veil, but the dress is equally as stunning without.  The A-line tulle embroidered skirt is super flattering for all brides, and simply flows as you walk. The light weight material also means there is enough movement so you can walk down the aisle effortlessly and also enjoy a good dance at the end of the night.  If you are curious and want to try this beautiful wedding dress on, simply book an appointment at La Novia or Oscar Lili by either calling 0131 556 3445 or emailing info@lanovia.co.uk/info@oscarlili.co.uk.

    Your venue can absolutely inspire your dress, or the other way round! Being based in Edinburgh we thought we would put the dream wedding dress with the dream venue.  The iconic Balmoral Hotel which is situated in central Edinburgh is a classic venue that demands a classic dress. The Katharine dress, with the off the shoulder top and a-line skirt is a timeless dress which fits the venue perfectly. The covered buttons on the back continue this sophisticated look, and it is super flattering for all body types.     Harvest Moon is a fun and quirky venue based in East Lothian. For this the perfect bridal look is the Peony dress which is full of character. Despite it being a simple design the sequin sparkling lace, embellished with oversized flowers and covered with dreamy tulle overlay for movement give just enough detail when combined with the minimal spaghetti strap bodice.    The Ghillie Dhu at the West End is an Edinburgh establishment which was restored in 2010 which is perfect for the couple ready to have a sophisticated city wedding. The Ariana dress is chic personified and the lace train is adds a vintage touch. The dress is perfect for swinging around in a ceilidh and wandering through Princes Street gardens for your photos.    Dundas Castle is perfect for those brides having the fairytale wedding, located just outside Edinburgh Dundas Castle has everything you could ask for.  The Gracia dress fits the bill entirely for this, with the full tulle skirt giving the ultimate princess vibes. The sheer tulle and embroidered top with capped sleeves only adds to this ultimate princess dress.    The Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh are a picturesque landscape which means all your pictures are guaranteed to be gorgeous. The Sarah dress is the perfect dress for this venue with its subtle floral pattern and tulle skirt. It is a perfect mix of boho and city chic, with the romantic vibe and different ways it can be accessorized.

We have finally launched our Etsy shop to offer a range of made-to-order bridal separates for our brides who can’t make it to the boutique. You can also order individual pieces to style with an existing bridal look, and a collection of our accessories will also be coming to the shop soon.   Our designer separates allow you to customise your bridal style by tailoring to your individuality and allowing a mix & match approach. If you are unsure of where to start, we’ve selected a few of our favourites from the shop to give youideas of outfit combinations and ways to wear.   Or, if you have done all your research and know exactly what look you want to create, you can view our full Etsy bridal shop here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/OscarLiliBridal   The Lily bolero top and Marianna skirt will give you a beautiful A-line silhouette with volume through the skirt. This for the bride who wants something quite traditional, but when paired with the Lily top, the deep V-neck and cap sleeve design transforms your style and keeps it modern. The Lily top can be worn with a simple bralette or can be made with lining in the front.    https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/826493230/lily-bridal-lace-plunge-v-neck-wedding?ref=shop_home_active_15&frs=1   https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/852965377/marianna-full-volume-a-line-ivory-bridal?ref=shop_home_active_9&frs=1   For more of a sleek and sophisticated Boho look, we love the combination of the Emily top and Lili trousers. The luxury satin fabric is comfortable to wear for a more laid back wedding but also incredibly chic. If embellishment is your thing, then the beaded lace of the Emily top adds a bit of sparkle and glamour to the look.   https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/839716227/emily-beaded-lace-and-satin-bridal?ref=shop_home_active_4&frs=1   https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/823425746/lili-wide-leg-palazzo-bridal-wedding?ref=shop_home_active_6&frs=1   Sometimes simplicity is key, and the cute combination of the Simone top and Davina skirt gives you an effortless bridal style. The lovely crochet top and A-line skirt with floaty chiffon, creates a romantic look which would be perfect for a casual outdoor ceremony.    https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/826477230/simone-lace-crochet-top-vintage?ref=shop_home_active_17&frs=1   https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/834105634/davina-a-line-ivory-bridal-wedding?ref=shop_home_active_8&frs=1

    This daring bridal gown from the Elysee Collection by Enzoani is a masterpiece, bringing you a couture bridal look that will have your guests heads turning. The fitted fishtail silhouette, enhances the figure and adds dramatic flair with an extra long, double layered lace train.

    Some brides prefer a more simple and low key style, and for those brides, we have plenty of options. The Carmen two-piece is perfect for any chic bride wanting something understated. The top, with its chiffon sleeves and plunge V-neck, is the perfect combination of classic but whimsical. The top and skirt are both made from double crepe which is super flattering for all figures. The fit and flare skirt fits at your hips, skims the legs and falls into a gorgeous train. The re-designed Arianna dress is an Oscar Lili favourite, this timeless fit and flare dress will suit every bride. Similar to the Carmen design it is made from double crepe, and the belted style draws in at the waist for an hourglass effect. The boat neckline allows the open back to be the main focal point. If these bridal styles are your dream, then get in touch!

    Whether you are overwhelmed from a day of wedding dress shopping and need a breather, or perhaps anticipating your dress-to-be’s arrival at our boutique, we thought we’d distract you for just a second and get you thinking about your pre-wedding prep. Specifically, the all-important skincare regime! You may be already blessed with a naturally flawless complexion, but if you feel like you need a little pick me up then we’re here to help. Here at Oscar Lili, and our sister bridal boutique La Novia, we are huge fans of Arbonne skincare. If you haven’t heard of Arbonne, it is a premium health and beauty brand that uses all pure, botanically based ingredients; it’s vegan, cruelty-free, and clinically tested. Plus it will have you glowing - what more could you ask for? We’ve picked a few of our favourite products to kickstart you on your way to looking bright and photo-ready. Starting with a good cleanser is the most important step when it comes to caring for your skin. Cleaning the skin thoroughly before anything else will ensure that your other products will be absorbed into the skin and work more effectively. Our favourite is the RE9 Advanced Brightening Cleansing Foam, it’s foamy texture gets rid of any make-up and impurities and leaves your skin feeling tightened and luminous.   (https://www.arbonne.com/pws/homeoffice/store/AMUK/product/RE9-Advanced-Brightening-Cleansing-Foam-8057,13157,480.aspx)   If you feel like you need a deeper cleanse then a great product to add in once daily or just a few times a week is the RE9 Advanced Prepwork Cleansing Polish. It is a lovely refreshing exfoliator which contains pea protein, antioxidant vitamin E and fine ground apricot seeds to get rid of dull, dead skin cells and soften the skintone. It’s gentle to the skin and will give you an instantly refreshed complexion.   (https://www.arbonne.com/pws/homeoffice/store/AMUK/product/RE9-Advanced-Prepwork-Cleansing-Polish-4678,12438,480.aspx)   Next, the RE9 Advanced Regenerating Toner is a must-have! It contains natural witch hazel and brown algae extract and comes in a handy spray bottle to deliver a dreamy mist over the skin which will have you feeling revitalised. A toner is great as it will shrink the pores and the appearance of fine lines and with this product it can be used throughout the day, even over your make-up for a boost of moisture and brightness.   (https://www.arbonne.com/pws/homeoffice/store/AMUK/product/RE9-Advanced-Regenerating-Toner-812,11130.aspx0   For moisture and radiance by day we suggest RE9 Advanced Restorative Cream SPF 15. With hyularonic acid, vitamin C and added Collagen this is a skin saviour which replenishes moisture and firms and plumps the skin for a youthful glow. The added SPF protects from sun damage and is essential for a sunny wedding day where you will be outdoors for long periods. (https://www.arbonne.com/pws/homeoffice/store/AMUK/product/RE9-Advanced-Restorative-Cream-SPF-15-816,10655,506.aspx)   After a long day of wedding planning you deserve some beauty sleep and the RE9 Advanced Prepwork Overnight Face Jelly is essentially that in a bottle. It’s a gorgeous light gel texture which gives instant hydration, and the superfood ingredients work into dry, tired skin overnight resulting in you waking up looking fresh and your face feeling “baby soft”. That’s one reason for a good nights sleep! (https://www.arbonne.com/pws/homeoffice/store/AMUK/product/NEW-RE9-Advanced-Prepwork-Overnight-Face-Jelly-4687,13499,506.aspx) Treat yourself to some self care so you can get that bridal glow on and feel a confidence boost for your big day.

About

Unlike the privacy policy on most websites, this one isn't copied from a generic template; it's been written from scratch by humans who have considered what modern websites do, how most people interact with them and what most people are bothered about when it comes to online personal data.

We've avoided legal jargon and covering every minute detail down to the nth degree. Instead, we've focused on what we consider to be the essential stuff and answering some of the real world questions you might have.

Overview

We respect your right to privacy and will always do our absolute best to ensure we conform to not just the laws at the time, but also our moral obligation to you. That's why we will never knowingly allow anyone to use any data about you that we hold unless legally required to do so, and we will always keep it secure and (where possible) will remove all trace of it at your request.
