Our First Baby… and Our First Employee!!!

I can’t believe we’ve been open for nearly a year and a half now, it has been the most exciting, yet challenging, exhausting, yet rewarding 18 months I’ve ever had. Running a business by yourself (well, of course along with my chief sign cutter / delivery man and cardboard disposal expert – my husband, and my extremely talented fashionista who helps choose all my gowns – my mum!) is hard work, I don’t think I’ve worked as many hours in my life, yet the thing is I absolutely love it! It’s often not like work, more like a hobby, choosing lots of pretty dresses and meeting some fab brides, from all around the world! At the moment it’s great, as lots of our brides are collecting their dresses for the summer and there is nothing better than seeing a bride’s dress in her size, all new, fresh and pristine! I can’t wait to share more blogs with you over the coming months of our real brides!!

HOWEVER…. things are going to change slightly, as in 2 weeks time we’re expecting our first baby! I am very, very excited – it has been a very long 9 months waiting for this little arrival, and to think that in 4 weeks we’ll meet him/her is a little surreal! You never know, I might open a baby shop next, jokes, I’m a very unprepared mother to be, I think I’ll stick with bridal! Of course, I’ll still be available to chat to via e-mail/phone, and all being well will be at all the fittings with our amazing dress maker, Andrea, when brides are collecting their wedding dresses. This does also mean that we have a new member of staff… who you will all absolutely love… Sara! Sara has been working Saturdays already, so some of you may have already met her, but she will be here full time to show you all the wedding gowns and provide her fashion expertise! Here she is at her formal on Saturday night, looking lovely! Please make her feel loved when you’re in!!

I hope you’re all out enjoying the sunshine! We’ve lots of brides in, and five brides trying their own dress on for the first time this evening.. That’s one of the best bits 🙂

Lots of love,
