I didn,t mention earlier that the salon was opened for the first time between Xmas and New Year and it was mad busy!
It was great for the mums to come in with their daughters who live away and vice versa.
One bride,s mum was over from Australia and it was her only chance to see her daughter try gowns on before her September wedding. Gemma selected a stunning full lace Benjamin Roberts and it was so nice that her mum could be with her. The clearance room was steady and of course it was an opportune time for any bride to get all her maids together over this period. We now have the usual January madness with deliveries daily of brides gowns , lots of trying on and accessorising and many new brides booking appointments weekly to view gowns for weddings from July right the way through to the end of December 2013. Yes, some brides do look as early as this and especially if they fall in love with a gown, we can do a remeasure much nearer the wedding date and of course they have the benefit of paying just a small amount monthly.
The new Maggie gowns are now all in almost and this season,s Benjamin Roberts new ones like the dress on the right, Tiarella, which has a stunning removeable lace overlay with a simple sheath gown underneath for the reception is very impressive . Take a look on their page and you will see all the new images.
Vintage,vintage,vintage!!!!! Please look at our Anouska G gowns, simply divine and unusual and all the staff want to wear one! I took LOUCIA to the Hilton fayre fayre recently and everyone just adored it. I for one never have time to try any gowns on but I am going to make one exception for this special gown! This will definately shock the girls!
We often receive letters of thanks and even cake and flowers sometimes, and today in our guest book on reception we had two lovely comments. One was from a young lady I served last week with a lovely prom dress from Flirt and she,d written how lovely it had been and she was looking forward to seeing us again when she becomes a bride,then in brackets had put, (I,m 16 at present)........... That was sweet. Plus a great note from one of our future brides to be Kelly who had written she loves us all and the shop and her whole family had at some time been either a bride, maid or had hired suits from us! This really makes us all work even harder and try as much as we can to assist as many brides to be as we can as it gives all the staff a boost to hear such lovely remarks.
Please don,t forget you can purchase many of our lovely classic items on line now and take a look at our new range of bridal shoes. These are an incredible price and they all look far more expensive, are really comfortable and definately have the wow factor. You can view any styles in store also and we are gradually buidling up a fabulous range of accessories for customers to order on line.
That,s it again for today ciao Susannexxxx (I have my Italian to practice now so I'm hoping my daughter who can speak French and Spanish can help me! It's so much harder learning another language when you are older but I'm determined to try!),
