They are made in the UK by Penguin Designs, a family owned business that has been making outfits for the Mother of the Bride & Groom for at least 30 years.
The outfits are traditionally made from lace, crepe, jersey or satin and there is bound to be a style combination to suit you – dresses, trouser suits, outfits with lace jackets and coats. There’s nearly every colour under the rainbow and they only take around 4 weeks to come into store.
Available in sizes 8-40 and some styles are similar to Ann Balon but without the price tag!
The beauty with Penguin is that you can have different sizes top and bottom, different lengths, sleeves or no sleeves, short jacket or long jacket and if you want one style on the top and a different style on the bottom that’s no problem!
Please be aware we will measure you and order to the nearest size , a bit like wedding dresses, so any further alterations needed will be at the customer’s expense.
We can however order a different size top and bottom and length of sleeves,trousers and dresses can be customised .
Priced at £695 they usually take around 3-4 weeks to come into store.

My mother and I visited today needing a mother of the bride outfit at short notice. There was a great selection of dresses to try on and it was refreshing to see that even In plus sizes. Kirsten was fantastic at suggesting outfits and accessories and my mum left with a beautiful outfit, fascinator and bag. She really put my mum at ease and made what could have been a stressful visit a breeze. We travelled 40 miles and it was well worth it.
