Silver Rose Corsetry is a British designer of fantasy-inspired couture bridal. Founded upon the diverse design and sensual shape of the corset, Silver Rose ties together the elegance of the hourglass figure and the design of outwear corsetry to create unique pieces.

The alternative designs are created bespoke to the client, with accompanying accessories to match your gown. Bespoke veils, detachable capes, shrugs and jackets can all be created to accompany your gown for your big day, with hand embellishment lingerie sets for something a little extra also available. Silver Rose can also meet any of your bridesmaid requirements, producing bespoke gowns, two pieces and tulle skirts to compliment your wedding. Bridal alterations for the wedding party, dressing robes for you and your bridesmaids and bridesmaid gift bags are also among the vast services available. Silver Rose would be honoured to bring your wedding dress dreams to life.



Hi, I'm Bex  of Eclectic brides and Bexbrides.  I have a quirky studio in the North East,  but I sell worldwide on Etsy too.

 I can make you a wedding dress from scratch,  I also upcycle vintage and retro ( and have a huge collection) I also sell ready made designer samples off the peg at amazingly discounted prices, that can be customized to your needs.

 I have a passion for bridal, and the sheer magic of it, but luckily for you also have an affordability ethos.  I love colour and textures, I'm obsessed with peacocks and Ombre. I love working with brides who are not afraid to embrace their own personality when it comes to their bridal wear and accessories. If an Ombre hem dress is too extravagant for you, maybe just have an Ombre veil.

If you're looking to have a dress or separates that are just a little bit eclectic, then I'd love to chat. 

Oh and I get told I'm supposed to mention that I've won several awards and been featured in many major cool Bridal blogs and magazines!
