What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Don't leave it too late! Especially when it comes to the dress. While we can help you last minute, if you do have the choice then try and aim to buy around 1 year in advance. This might seem like a lot, but trust us, it is not!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Brides will come in to see us for a consultation (sometimes with their grooms but most often with Mum or bridesmaids) where our experienced stylists will have an in-depth chat with the bride and her entourage about her wedding and her personal sense of style. we will then recommend styles for the bride to try and she is also free to try any that have caught her eye. We then go through all of the dresses together, going over cut, colour and shape etc until we find the perfect dress, not just for your figure but for the bride you imagined being.
What do you love most about your job?
Being creative and making girls look the best they can - far beyond their expectations!
What is your favourite style of wedding dress?
The two boutique directors have very different styles! Lucy would go for timeless elegance, think 1950s styling with classic cuts. Carina would go for modern stunners, think the new trend towards Israeli wedding dresses with figure hugging silhouettes and jaw-dropping back details.
What is the best way to incorporate "Something Blue" into the wedding outfit?
Our fitters will offer to weave a small blue flower to the inside of your dress for you, which can be a very sweet touch.
What is your favourite wedding dress of all time?
It's a difficult one!!!!! This question sparked much debate but I think if we HAD to pick we'd go for Grace Kelly's wedding dress from 1957.
