Beautiful Bridesmaids

Many of our brides are delighted by the range and personal service we offer our bridesmaids here at Borrowed Blue & Lace.  Not only do we have an extensive range of styles, colour and sizes we also offer Brides and their lovely friends the opportunity to try dresses on in a private Bridesmaids Room.

Having the knowledge about styles, fabrics and colours has proved to be invaluable to our Brides.  Our dresses range from £200-295 and we have sample dresses ranging from age 2 to adult size 20.

If you are looking for a Dessy, Alfred Sung or Amanda Wyatt bridesmaids dress please book an appointment with us.

Lovely Blog by Jo at Tea and Doilies...we love having your china in our shop......


This week we have been in to visit  Borrowed, Blue & Lace bridal shop in Wokingham, Berkshire.

A fantastic hidden gem, this bridal boutique is run by the lovely Helen and Elaine. Helen has 15 years of  wedding planning experience  in both the UK, and in destination weddings such as Tuscany, Lake Como and Amalfi. I have had the pleasure of working with Borrowed Blue & Lace on many occasions, including several photoshoots. Here’s an image from our Midsummers Night Shoot at Pennyhill Park, Bagshot, Surrey, where we used this beautiful dress called Chic by Hollywood Dreams

Helen and Elaine provide each customer with a truly personalised service. Working on an appointment system, they take time to listen to budgets, colours and ideas. With two spacious changing rooms, they will work with you to get you what you have always dreamed of, whether that be you ultimate wedding dress, stunning bridesmaid dress, matching shoes, or sparkly accessorise.

As well as some special one off pieces, Borrowed Blue & Lace stock Chic by Hollywood dreams and Calista wedding dresses. They are also now a supplier of Dessy and Amanda Wyatt Dresses in a full range of their colours and styles. You can also see their rainbow shoe collection which can be dyed to match.

This week, Tea and Doilies has had the chance to set up a china and wedding stationery display in their beautiful shop, using some of Melissa Woodland’s stunning cakes. I love creating way for brides-to-be to envisage their big day.

Lovely Testimonial

Written by Borrowed Blue & Lace. Posted in Blog.



We have the delightful job of helping Helen with chosing her wedding dress and accessories and here's the lovely testimonial she emailed us today....thank you Helen

I was very apprehensive about finding a dress for my big day, the wedding day had been a last minute decision and I only had 4 months to plan the whole thing. All the other wedding dress shops had said they couldn't turn around a dress in such a short space of time and I had been a tried on a few dresses from the high street and they looked ok but I didn't feel they were the "one" so I contacted Helen to see is she would be able to help.

As soon as I walked into Helen and Elaine's beautiful shop I felt at ease, it was like a bridal heaven. Helen came up with some great ideas and options for me and all the dresses I tried on all felt wow! I now have a beautiful dress on order ready to be delivered with enough time for any alterations with some amazing accessories and lots and lots of great tips from Helen on how to make our day a day to remember.

I can't recommend Borrowed Blue and Lace enough, thanks to the wonderful atmosphere that Helen and Elaine create, they are very knowledgeable and have engaged with local suppliers to provide the whole wedding experience. I can't wait to go back and try my dress on!!
