In this age of the DIY Wedding boom we see it as a necessity to create the dream dress not just as a mesmerizing centrepiece for a celebration, but as THE defining, crowning glory moment of all that stands true to the brides vision.
Whatever the theme, venue or ceremony style, No 18 provides the bride with a one-stop solution that’s simply overflowing with vintage glamour and topped with versatility.
We listen to the bride.
Our collections have been painstakingly designed and created in response to clients at our busy bespoke bridal boutique in the heart of Newcastle. We deliver style and comfort in a way that suits a chosen theme. Our dresses are light, manouverable, charming and elegant – all crafted as such to ensure a stress free major life event.
We base our gowns on original one-off vintage pieces spanning from the imposed simplicity of the 1930s to the sophisticated chic of the 1960s. Glittering with lace appliques and sweetheart necklines, contrasting cascades of tulle and diamante, our pristine replicas are crowned with the everlasting trademarks of the retro fashion industry and fascinate as reproductions in their own right.
This unique blend of vintage stylings and modern fabrics is available in any UK dress size with added tucks and flares to suit different body shapes if required – a uniquely flattering and personal service from No 18 that can be finely tuned at the brides request.
We offer a similar bespoke bridesmaids dress service to complement our vintage bridal gown range. Available in the same flexible range of sizes and accentuated with those period details, our bridesmaids can mix preppy three-quarter length sleeves and 50s boat necklines to maximum effect. Coupling a chosen design and available in a variety of darker muted colours and pretty pastels all of our bridesmaids dresses are handmade in Britain using British sourced suppliers.
