The Rainaway Bride - an innovative approach to protect your wedding dress - more than just a wedding poncho!
So, I was walking through Dagenham on a wet , cold and blustery Sunday morning when I met, through chance, Karen Robb the designer of the unique 'Rainaway Bride' and owner of the Dornellie Bridal Studio, who, together with colleague Suky from the incredibly creative Griege Stories were being filmed by the BBC.
The BBC were interested in Karen's 'Rainaway Bride' for its unique design which goes one step further than the traditional poncho style waterproof cloak used by brides to protect their dress from the rain. The 'Rainaway Bride' has a unique. system that gathers from the bottom which holds the wedding dress up from puddles, mud, soggy grass and damp pavements whilst leaving the bride's hands free.
Wedding day weather:
As a wedding venue offering a complimentary Wedding Planning Service both on the day and in the run up to the wedding, here at Sunninghill Weddings we know only too well how stressful the threat of unfavourable weather can be for couples in the run up their big day; it is not uncommon to find the weather forecast replacing social media sites as their main source of information!
Whilst 2018 saw a record number of sunny days and incredible high temperatures reached, this isn't always the case. The UK is subject to fluctuating weather conditions, for example, in 2017 the UK experienced many rainy days during August, the peak wedding season. Earlier this year, our April wedding couples were contending with not just with rain but snow on the ground too! Indeed it was a very wet wedding season that led to wedding dress designer Karen Robb to create a solution for the brides who had invested in her bespoke Dornellie wedding dress creations; a solution now available to everyone.
The Extreme Weather Test for Your Wedding Dress
OK so this video in addition to showing the couple having lots of fun, also puts the wedding dress and 'The Rainaway Bride' through some pretty extreme conditions and, the dress comes out the winner!
What I particularly liked when chatting with Karen is that she wanted to make sure that what she was offering did the job it was designed to do. No one wants to think about rain on their wedding day but it does happen and, when you have invested hundreds, often thousands of pounds on your wedding dress the 'Rainaway Bride' can offer a peace of mind that is well worth the investment.
