Our lovely customer Alice Halstead has a big wedding coming up with seven little bridesmaids and we made the 'Thistle' dress for her in ivory silk. Lots of love to Alice!

"Words cannot describe how grateful and delighted I am with the bridesmaid dresses. They are absolutely beautiful and I know all seven of my bridesmaids are going to look absolutely stunning in their dresses. I must admit, I got a little teary when we opened the parcel and saw the dresses, all named up in tissue paper and on opening the dresses themselves - they are out of this world.

The Elisa dress is modelled on our lovely 3 year old model and as with all of our dresses we make them up to age 12 - so everyone can sparkle! The gold is available in a range of shades including a rose gold and the pink can be pinker or more blush. The sash is available in 140 silk colours so there's plenty of opportunities to bring out the romantic in you!

Here at Gilly Gray we love the first communion season! There's only one absolute and that is that the first communion dress is white (with the occasional ivory dress, thrown in). Other than the colour, there are few constraints and we've made first communion dresses with a classic, pretty, simple layer of tulle and first communion dresses with the biggest skirt imaginable! Some have a gorgeous flower on them whilst others have an an impressive display of diamante - we love them all!

"I'm going to be dramatic American and just gush over how gorgeous and perfect the flower girl dresses are! I went home to Asheville in the Blue Ride Mtns this weekend and the first stop I made was to my Aunt's because the kiddos were so excited to show me. They did a "big reveal" from behind double doors. They are just beautiful. The pink is perfect and Kaylee's yellow flower on her flower girl dress is perfect down to the pearl and stone. We're so happy! Thanks for all of your time and hard work!"

It feels like a million, bajillion years ago since little Olivia, at the age of three, started modelling our flower girl dresses. It's been so special to be able to watch her growing up and I can't imagine her not being part of our company. Fortunately, (until she says 'NO MORE!') we can carry on putting her in frilly flower girl frocks and flower girl hairbands on a regular basis!
