Welcome to ASTW - the place for bespoke brides looking for unique handmade items, ideas & inspiration



Introducing the dickie bow with style! Today we're getting to know Bridie Rimmer, the brains and talent behind Dick Beau. She is the creator of unique, handmade accessories packed with personality. A must-have for any groom wanting a little pocket-square of something special on his big day!

Dick Beau's marvellous dickies was founded in 2013 as a side project for fashion designer Bridie Rimmer. She wanted to offer quirky handmade gentleman's attire whilst inspiring guys to let loose and be different on their wedding day. 

Here she shares the story of how Dick Beau became a reality.

I studied fashion / textiles throughout college and university developing skills in advanced pattern cutting and garment construction, which lead me to starting my own bespoke clothing business. From this came the idea of running a small side business alongside Born To Thread.

I have always had an interest in menswear especially the accessory side and love the idea of using quirky prints within my designs. After a lot of research I fell in love with bow ties so I decided to put it all together and create a unique little brand called Dick Beau.

Each item is individually cut out and then hand crafted to the highest quality in my small studio in the heart of North Yorkshire.

Dick Beau also offers a bespoke service where you can choose aspects of the design to ensure you have that personal touch for your special day. One Dick Beau even made an appearance at the Golden Globes as Ralph Millero, the vice president of the Peanuts movie bought a Charlie Brown bow tie for the Director. 

Whatever ideas you have whether it be a theme or colour, I will work closely with you to achieve your marvellous dickie.
