What is your most memorable wedding?
Too many to choose from!! Our head bridal consultant, Chantal got married in this lovely 1930s cinema and had her reception at the Roman Baths in Bath, her dress was inspired by old movie stars and it was a beautifully fitted fit and flare, with a stunning train. That was a lovely and unusual wedding. Also one of our brides had this wonderful winter wedding last Christmas with gorgeous burgundy colors and a beautifully understated dress, which twinkled has she moved.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
classic, sophisticated, vintage, relaxed and fun.
What about your business are you most proud of?
The service we provide from the moment our brides enter our shop to the alterations stages and when they come back after the wedding to share pictures of their day. We believe that our costumer service is second to none and we are also very proud of our in-house alteration service we are able to offer to our brides as well as brides whom might have bought their dress else where.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Book your venues in plenty of time as the good dates and venues book up quickly. Also start searching for your wedding dress in plenty of time, it will take the pressure off and will make budgeting easier if you can spread the cost of a wedding over a year rather then a few months.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We normally deal with brides and their mothers. When you first contact us we will schedule an appointment in our luxurious bridal room. There you will have a free consultation with Sue or Chantal and will get to view our full dress collection and try as many dresses as you'd like on. Once we have tried on a few, we may suggest some styles that would suit you as well. After that if you buy the dress from us we will measure you and order your dress. 4-6 months later your dress will be with us and we will schedule fitting a few months before your wedding. lastly, you will collect your dress the week of your wedding, perfect for you to wear on your day. From start to finish you will be seen by either Sue or Chantal or in most cases both.
What do you love most about your job?
We are really passionate about finding the perfect dress for our brides. It is such an important day in their life and we do our utmost to make it an easy, fun and individual experience for every bride.
What is your favourite style of wedding dress?
We love fit and flare. They suit a lot of different girls, adding curves to slimmer brides or flattering curvier brides.
What is the best way to incorporate "Something Blue" into the wedding outfit?
One of our designer has a blue rose embroided on the inside of each of their dresses. We also have used blue ribbons to bussle the dresses and finally garters are a nice touch to add your something blue.
