Mother of the Bride Dresses
The Forget me Not team, led by award winning British designer Geraldine Tulloch, have been creating wedding dresses for Brides since 1989. Each wedding gown is handcrafted by a team of skilled dressmakers in our workrooms, which are situated directly below our pretty boutique on the Isle of Wight. It might sound a long way away but our bridal shop is in a perfect location to make a real day out of your wedding dress appointment. From London travel is an easy day trip,( it takes just 2 hours) via the closest ferry port of Portsmouth, or hovercraft from Southsea or you can travel via Southampton or Lymington if you are coming from the South West. You can stroll beside the sea with an ice cream or sit and admire the view, whilst sipping a glass of Fizz and enjoying a fine lunch before you head home. As you walk into the Forget me Not Designs boutique you can see an abundance of wedding dresses adorning our rails and mannequins, made from sumptuous silks, chiffons and exquisite laces. Drawing on years of experience and by listening to you, we are experts in helping you choose a dress to best suit your style and personality. We design gowns for a variety of wedding themes, from traditional church to Festival style party, far away beach to a winter castle. Our collections include classic A-line shapes, elegant 1950’s styles, Vintage 20’s and 30’s, figure hugging mermaid dresses and styles with a modern, cutting edge Wow factor! We can even design you a “one off” bespoke, couture wedding dress so that all of our brides can wear a beautiful wedding gown, made to measure, to their taste, shape, style and budget. If you would like to view any of our dresses or would like to talk with our designers about a custom made gown, feel free to come and visit us in our boutique, you can even take a peek into the workrooms to see where and how the dresses are made. We look forward to meeting you and will make you most welcome. (Appointments appreciated)

Fed up of saying " I like it - but " At Forget me Not you are not limited by on the rail choices, you can create your own dress by choosing all the best elements of dresses you have tried, for example the neckline of one and the way it flows off the hip of another, with the puddle/Cathedral length train of " that one" and in the fabric or lace of yet another. Any combination of ideas to best suit you on your special day. That is what we do best! Finalist for British Bridal Awards 2015 2016,
