What is your most memorable wedding?
We love working with all our brides but last year I had the honour of helping my brother and his
fiancée plan their wedding. We were able to help Joanne find her dream wedding dress and she
looked beautiful. It was quite emotional attending their wedding and seeing our hard work come
together. It was a perfect day.
What about your business are you most proud of?
My team and I work very hard to make sure all of our customers feel relaxed and at ease while
they’re with us. Finding a wedding dress or bridesmaid’s dresses is a big decision. We understand
what an emotional experience it can be and we work to guide you through the process so you can be
confident that the decisions you make are perfect for you and your wedding day.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Costing and timing is key to stress free wedding planning. You need to decide early on how much you have to spend and stick to it, otherwise it's easy for things to spiral out of control. You also need you give yourself plenty of time. For example we like to have at least 8 months from ordering a dress to the wedding day to give us time for the dress to arrive and fit it properly.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
We once had a bride whose father had passed away and she was understandably upset that he wouldn’t be walking her down the aisle as she had imagined he would when she was a little girl. In the end she found a way that he could be with her on that walk, she put a locket with his picture in her bouquet. We’ve used this suggestion for people a number of times since, I think it’s such a lovely idea.
What do you love most about your job?
I love that we are in such a privileged position every day. Our brides trust us to help them put together aspects of their dream wedding. We go on a journey with each and every customer from their 1st appointment until their wedding day and even afterwards. There isn’t another job I can think of that would be so fulfilling.
What is the best way to incorporate "Something Blue" into the wedding outfit?
We have a lovely selection of garters that incorporate blue ribbon details. A lot of our brides choose these for their something blue.
