Lori G Update

After all the madness since March we are well back into the swing of things here at Lori G and getting used to our new normal. We are loving welcoming back our existing brides for their fittings and meeting new brides to be who can now finally get stuck in planning their big day! The masks and gloves worn by us and our brides have become part of the fun and our appointments are once again buzzing with excitement.

We have even had our first post lockdown weddings! Our lovely Farah kicked off the ‘I do’s’ on the 18th July wearing her fabulous Riki Dalal gown, proving that even a global pandemic cannot stop two people from celebrating the love they have for one another. We are so thrilled for them both!
Since coming back from lockdown, we have also had the pleasure of now stocking Madi Lane Bridal. These stunning dresses are perfect for the traditional bride wanting something a little bit different, with elegant lace and romantic accents and details, these are a must try on your visit to us!

With the upcoming bank holiday approaching, we are all looking forward to our long weekend after a busy few weeks in the shop and there will definitely be a few glasses of gin enjoyed before we are back ready to help you find your dream wedding dress!

The last 13 years have just whizzed by! This time 13 years ago we could of only dreamed we would get to where we are today!

It hasn’t always been the easiest however there have been so many highs and so many fabulous Brides over the years that it makes everyday so worth it! As one of the longest standing Bridal Shops around we have built an amazing reputation, with a lot of our Brides coming on recommendation, even coming from Spain, Italy, Dubai and even Australia all based on previous Brides experiences with us. We can not thank every single one of you enough! We have even had Grooms recommending us!

Over the last few years we have made some amazing memories, not just with our Brides but as a team too. To name a few, being featured in Derbyshire Life, The Derby Telegraph, Derby Radio & Our very own Sandra’s Wedding being featured in White Weddings & The Derbyshire Magazine! We have been on ‘Don’t Tell the Bride’ and one of our dresses went all the way to Vegas with ‘The Undateables’…having Channel 4 film here is something we will always remember!


We have also been involved in lots of charity work, most recently ‘Gift Of A Wedding’

In our 12th Year we won ‘Bridal Boutique of The Year 2018’ Regional and for the South of England!



This will always be the most treasured memory, we are so proud to be able to say we won this, especially as we were up against some amazing shops! Our awards take pride of place in the shop! We also could not believe the reaction, comments and congratulations cards we received, Thank you!


With all of this being said, it’s now time to Celebrate our Birthday with lots of Chocolate cake.. And a Fab giveaway for all Brides to be to enter.. So if your a Bride yourself or you know a Bride to be then please enter on our Facebook page now.

The rules are simple and it could not be easier!

Good Luck!

Then they announced that we had Won
