Welcome to Callista Bride!
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to our world……
I have been a bridal designer, manufacturer and retailer all my working life - Callista Bride is a proud British label, with our team based in the Yorkshire city of Sheffield. We first introduced the brand to the UK 7 years ago - now we have retailers in many European countries, plus Australia and New Zealand.
Callista Bride is the largest dedicated Plus-Size collection in the World (we don’t like to use the term “Plus-Size”, it is the industry which insists on categorizing us - we actually prefer “Curvy”, “Sexy”, or “Sophisticated” !) Choice is everything, and we have lots to choose from - you will be spoilt!
Our design ethos for Callista Bride is based on a "4 S" principle, reflected in every gown:
That is what you get with our label, and the industry thinks so too!
Having won the 2017 UK industry award for Best Plus-Size bridal collection, we continue to grow stronger - producing the very best designs that work for you, our wonderful Callista Brides. We listen to you and to our international retail partners, to reflect your ideas and needs.
Within our collection there are styles to cater for every type of wedding, whether it be formal or informal, beach-style, grand, or intimate.
There are styles for every type of bride, in terms of personality, size, or shape.
There are also gowns at multiple price points, from budget through practical, to totally lavish.
Just some examples of how we apply our styles to the occasion:
Formal weddings – full ball gowns with fitted, beaded bodices, long or detachable capped sleeves, long trains, and corset backs.
Informal weddings – our T-length styles include spotted tulles, delicate prints, with lace overlays and flirty petticoats.
Beach weddings – with BoHo styling and lightweight fabrics, we offer gowns in chiffons through to Milano crepe, lightweight lace and tulle, delicate beadwork, creating floaty dresses which are easy to pack.
Callista Bride – a multitude of style choices for all the World’s curvy brides!
