The bride to be’s path to her wedding day has a very steep learning curve as it is a unique and “once in a lifetime” experience. So many of our brides feel the need to apologise when we first meet them for not knowing anything about wedding dresses, or what style they think they would like when they really have nothing to be apologetic for. Our specific area of expertise is centred around the dress and helping the bride and her family and friends develop a vision and look for their wedding. It is our job to help you find your perfect bride style….even if you don’t know what it is when you first come in to see us! When we first meet a bride to be, they tend to fall into 2 very clear categories, those that know exactly what they want, and those that just know they need a dress to wear! In this BLOG we focus on brides who just haven’t a clue where to start!!!
We know it can be very daunting to come into a bridal shop (we liken it to a very posh hairdressers) and then seeing all of our rails and rails of dresses, it can be both overwhelming and exciting at the same time!! To keep it all as stress free and as fun as possible, our shop is set out in sizes and dress shapes, so our size 14’s and under are on left, and our 16’s and overs are on the right. Then we have grouped all of the fishtail, Soft and Floaty, A-Lines & Ball Gowns together within the dress sizes, so it is super easy to find dresses for you to try on regardless of body shape, size or style preference!
All of the bridal dresses you see in the picture can be ordered in your size and almost all are available in a variety of colour options and style modification options, and this is where we come in! We always like to make sure when you come into our store you are looked after and have the best experience possible, which is why we do like to run an appointment diary. It just means that every bride gets the time and attention they deserve as we run through all of the options that are available to you, and before you know it you are stood in your dream dress ( that is nothing like you even thought you wanted) and your wedding vision is appearing before your eyes!
We absolutely LOVE bridal try ons, there really is no better feeling in the world than seeing a bride find HER dress as she just lights up the room. We always go into a bridal try on appointment with one goal – to find the perfect dress so we have a happy bride! It does sound super cheesy we know, but no matter who the bride is, her age, characteristics, personality, budget or wedding venue, that special moment when she realises how absolutely FAB-U-LOUS she looks is priceless. Don’t worry if you don’t have an “OMG” lightening bolt moment, with tears and gasps of wonder, as more often than not, it is just a slow quiet realisation of joy and amazement that you are stood in the dress you will get married in. As Nicky says “when you know….you know!”
