Over the Christmas period, instead of having a rest, we decided to expand our shop to incorporate a Colour Boutique. This new shop houses all of our prom, evening and bridesmaid dresses.

Dessy have a fantastic bridesmaid collection which includes both cocktail and full length gowns in a vast array of beautiful colours and they go from size 00 - 32.

One of the main reasons we love Dessy is because they have a fabulous interactive website ( Having spent a bit of time playing this morning we've discovered they have a section where you can create your own wedding mood boards! (

The other reason we love Dessy is because they do co-ordinating men's accessories so it takes the stress out of trying to match up cravats, ties, waistcoats and pocket squares.

Spring Watch!

Here at Shades of White we are very lucky as we have a fantastic location sitting right on the edge of the Great River Ouse. As the seasons come and go our view is ever changing and evolving. All of our brides and their guests really enjoy sipping their tea whilst watching the river floating along, and what ever the weather there is always something to look at.

As the daffodils start to flower and the meadow turns lush and green there is only one thing on our minds.......DUCKLINGS!! Yes we are now on duckling watch. Any time from now until the summer months we will start to see little fluffy yellow dots bobbing along.......we'll keep you posted!

Spring Weddings

After a wet few weeks we are very pleased to see the sun starting to shine. Not that we have had a particularly cold winter but it has been long and grey! As the daffodils start to flower and the evenings get lighter we all bloom in to action for the summer months ahead. The shop is full with excited brides planning the last minute touches for their spring weddings. The Colour Boutique is filled with citrus fresh colours and feminine chiffon fabrics.
