Not only do we get brides in the shop who have those first ideas of what they are looking for, we often get brides in who have already purchased a dress but just don’t feel like it’s the one for them. This happened with our lovely bride Amy.
Amy came to the shop after buying a 50’s style dress from the internet, she was unhappy with it and didn’t feel like she could wear it on her wedding day, we discussed altering it to suit her but she said she just didn’t think it was the right dress and wanted to look for something else.
She looked at some of our dresses and saw a long lace dress, she tried it on and it looked lovely, we knew it was the right one when she looked at her Mum with tears in her eyes, which of course set us off (we love an emotional moment).
Even though Amy knew this was the dress for her, there were a few changes she wanted to make it her own, so at short notice we made her the dress of her dreams, she came back to try it on and it fitted perfectly, I have to admit she makes a beautiful bride and her wedding was quirky and stunning, the photographs say it all. Both Amy and her mum have been very supportive of our boutique and like some of our brides have sent in some lovely reviews about our service and designs.
