The Peony Gown

Forget those frumpy frocks that leave you feeling more than just a little flat, these lovelies from Quail Bridal offer everything the stylish bride is looking for: beautiful, sophisticated and uber-glam.

The Parisian Gown

While the bridesmaids collection is nothing short of fun, retro, colourful and just gorgeous. You can mix it up and forgo that tired matchy-matchy look for one that’s still co-ordinated but in a more subtle way.

L-R: Roma, Peony, Marie, Toasting Dresses

Quail is a term used in 1960’s hipster slang to describe a woman or a girl.

A Quail girl is “the girl who sees the beauty in all things—the beauty in the moment—the potential for expression in every piece of clothing, new or old, perfect or imperfect”.

The Roma Gown

Michelle Williams is the creative genius behind these gowns and when I asked her recently what inspired her to start-up Quail Bridal she said “In 2008, I went to 21 weddings including my own! With many friends tying the knot, we realised there was something missing in the market: stylish, classy, affordable bridesmaid dresses. Since then, the business has blossomed and it became inevitable that we would add wedding gowns to the collection.”

The Marie and The Peony Cake-Cutting Dresses

Quail works hard to ensure their collections consist of a number of mix and match, color customizable separates and convertible options for a myriad of possibilities that are sure to get some major play even after the big day!

Their stellar team of bridal experts offer a unique, hands-on experience at their boutique in California. The collection is not available anywhere in the UK as yet but is available to buy online, and they have worked with Brides via email from Texas to Australia!  It couldn’t be easier to order simply visit the site and create your wishlist of styles, their team will then work with you to create your chosen design.

The Parisian and Lily Dresses

Michelle credits her friends as being instrumental to her success with her Bridal collection. “They all have been in so many weddings and they know what looks cute and what doesn’t! I usually need their stamp of approval before I can add a style to the collection”.

She added “I’m seeing that more and more companies are offering wedding dresses and bridesmaids dresses online. Before, brides-to-be were adamant about trying on dresses in a store with champagne and the whole works! But now, I think brides are more willing to venture out and see what the world wide web has to offer”.

So who is the Quail Bride?

Michelle described her as “Lucy Ricardo meets Rihanna. You got the classic charm of Lucy with the feminine rebel-edge of Rihanna”.

It's Friday whoop whoop! Balloon arches are cool again thanks to @houselarsbuilt #wedding #weddingplanner
Loving all the pastel popping up on the runways. It doesn't have to be sugary sweet it's all in the application. #wedding
Sometimes we just need a little reminder. We're definitely dreamers and proud of being so, constantly thinking up new and better ways of doing things, thinking about how we can improve & what we want to achieve. Tag a friend who needs reminding of this. 👇
Oh @Dior how we love thee. Industrial scaffolding contrasted with delicate pastel pink & shimmering mirrored walls. So inspiring
Working on something a little different in the studio currently. Incorporating the family tartan of one of our #wedding grooms and the brides love of fresh green.
Gamechanger! @hemsleyhemsley #healthyliving #hemsleyhemsley #spiralizer
So I'm honoured to have been nominated for the #20BeautifulWomen challenge, but being the inquisitive creature I am I wanted to understand what it was for & how it started but it seems it's a bit of a mystery. Maybe something to do with the book by Saba Tekle via @huffingtonpost or simply to celebrate women who are beautiful inside and out: visionary, kind, inspiring and empowering women. So yeah I'm all up for that. Author of said book defines a beautiful woman as this: "A beautiful woman shares her story so other women won't feel alone. A beautiful woman is peaceful: she has made peace with her past. A beautiful woman is passionate: she is on fire with a strong desire to change the world. A beautiful woman is purposeful: she knows why she was born and does what she was created here to do. Be beautiful." My 20 beautiful & inspirational ladies are all tagged in - I tried to cheat and add more but it won't let me!
