Our collections are not sold on-line

Our wedding dress designers do not sell their creations on-line, but via approved bridal retailers like Wedding Belles & Beaus.

Our gowns are bought following a lengthy appointment where our brides gain the full benefit of our expertise to find the dress for them; get the right size and achieve optimum fit using our recommended seamstress.

If you buy one of our designer’s dresses on-line you run a high risk that it is a cheap copy (unless you are absolutely sure that it is second hand); they cost less because - they are not as good.

Introducing David Tutera for Mon Cheri

Wedding Belles & Beaus is delighted to announce the introduction of a brand new wedding dress collection to our York store.

David Tutera for Mon Cheri is a first for North Yorkshire and represents a truly beautiful collection of gorgeous bridal gowns. These lovely wedding dresses perfectly compliment our current range by offering something just that little bit different; not only are the designs really beautiful, but they look and feel great. Quality of fabric and construction is incredibly important to us and we think that any bride couldn’t fail to be wowed by this latest addition to our bridal gown selection.

In a slightly different move we’ve chosen some samples in colours such as ice, rose and blush – not just because they looked amazing, but again to present Wedding Belles & Beaus’ brides with greater choice and the latest trends.

David Tutera is very well known state-side for being the go-to wedding planner via his prime time TV series, My Fair Wedding, now in its 6th season. Famed for helping brides achieve their dream wedding in just three weeks and for generally transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary David has been a creative tour de force within the wedding industry for many years. At Mon Cheri he works with esteemed (and highly experienced) designer Martin Thornburg to produce this fabulous collection.

Whilst Wedding Belles & Beaus is already extremely proud of our great range of wedding dresses we are keen to keep developing and continually presenting our brides with superior options.

Our own samples, as can be seen in our gallery page, will not be with us until the end of July.

Lillian West

The Lillian West 2014 Preview Collection arrived at Wedding Belles & Beaus in June 2013. Created by the team at the Justin Alexander design house, Lillian West offers the same expert designs and luxury fabric, but at reduced rates.

This first collection sees beautiful wedding dresses made of rich satins, re-embroidered fine laces and soft romantic fabrics. Lillian West has created classic bridal gowns that feature stunning details such as low backs, sensual slits and chic one-should necklines, with gorgeous lace silhouettes.

Wedding Belles & Beaus was one of the first UK stockists to have sample wedding dresses in store. Lillian West is already causing quite a stir – so book an appointment now to try these truly lovely bridal gowns.

Justin Alexander

Justin Alexander is an international company that caters for the mid to high end bridal gown collections.


They are dedicated to every stage in the creation of a gown with the development of their own fabrics, lace, beading and other embellishments that often include Swarovski crystals.


Famed for their fantastic construction, fit and quality; Justin Alexander works hard with ‘hidden details’ on the inside of the dress, with built in corsets, silk linings and extra straps to support the bride. It is imperative that the dress should feel good as well as look great.


Their gowns are sold worldwide, so Justin Alexander experiments with shape to create a large number of amazing silhouettes and gowns of beautiful proportion. Justin Alexander also includes other colour accents, whilst around 80% of the gowns sold are ivory; they have introduced platinum, gold and pink into their range. Their gowns are designed for the ‘real’ woman – who wants to look the best she can.


They have a diverse range with six different collections and 15 or 20 new pieces per year for each collection.


Justin Alexander definitely considers itself a leader, not a follower of bridal fashion.

Should you want to try a style that we don’t stock, this can be sourced for a small fee that is fully refundable on purchase of the gown.

Justin Alexander Counterfeit Dresses

We know that some brides have been fooled into buying a counterfeit Justin Alexander dress on-line and have been very unhappy with the result.

They are not sold on-line

We would just like to reiterate – you will only get an authentic Justin Alexander gown from an approved stockist – they are not sold on-line.

Look for the window sticker

Certified authentic Justin Alexander styles are made with the highest quality materials and constructed by hand with tremendous attention to detail – which is reflected in the price. Price does not differ greatly between approved retailers.


Buying a gown from us gives you the time with the benefit of our expertise to ensure you get the quality dress that you want, with the optimum fit.

Sophia Tolli

Sophia Apostolides is the lady behind Sophia Tolli bridal and having spent 10 years as head designer for Maggie Sottero means that she is more than qualified for the role.


For Sophia an impeccable fit is essential, this together with unparalleled craftsmanship informs everything that she does. Her signature style is slimming draping and intricate design. One of the very great things about Sophia Tolli gowns is that we can order gowns in either a tie or zip back depending on the bride’s preference and to help achieve that all important optimum fit.


Sophia says “My collection has two distinct feelings: soft classic romanticism and traditional bridal drama. My signature style will always be gowns with an exceptional fit and cut.”


In 2010 Sophia Tolli won the prestigious Bridal Buyer Best Dress of the Year Award voted by attendees of the National Wedding Show in London and Birmingham, where with the Y2954 gown she achieved 32% of the vote from 25,000 brides to be.


Sophia Tolli gowns continue to be a popular choice at Wedding Belles & Beaus where we stock a good selection to choose from. If however you want a particular Sophia Tolli gown that we don’t have, we are able to source, for a nominal fee that is refundable upon purchase.
