The National Wedding Show is a HUGE deal for our little shop as not only do we have to closed for 3 days (Thursday 27th to Saturday 29th September 2018) this year we are taking over 100 bridal dresses with us!!! It is a military planning operation to transport everything we need for our mini “the wedding rooms,” and ensure we do our best to take our shop atmosphere (friendly, helpful with a hint of craziness) to the show!
We started to do our MASSIVE bridal sample sale ages ago, and its become a bit of a tradition. It is a fab way to match brides to be with bridal bargains, and by holding our Preview Sale in-store, we always do our bit for our local brides to have the first pick of the best buys!
At every show we are privileged to meet so many brides and their friends and families and are very lucky to share so many “Say Yes to The Dress” moments, over the 3 days. We always have the dreadful and very awkward moment when a bride comes back later in the day to buy a dress she tried on earlier only to find it has been sold. We always let everyone know that once a dress has been sold, that is it – we can’t get another one, but no one believes us!!
The last few days running up to the show is all about last minute checks and preparation as we check labels, go through our lists and make sure all of the dresses are in perfect, tip-top condition to meet their owners!
Lets see what this show brings – as always it will be a good fun and we will meet lots of brilliant brides!
