Ivory & Pearl Open Night 2015
I have had thee craziest week, Mum, Daisy and I went to London and it was the craziest, funniest trip I think I’ve ever had! Picture this.. my (poor) mum, me and my 7 month old baby, 2 suitcases, 2 handbags and a pram trooping up and down stairs, in the tube out of the tube, walking miles.. to meet new bridal designers.. if you think owning your own business is glamorous.. think again! Mum’s wondering when she’ll be able to get on my private jet and stay in the Ritz..
Then on Thursday I did a presentation to the University of Ulster Digital Marketing Class, a Sample Sale today annnddd our OPEN NIGHT on Tuesday!! So who is coming on Tuesday?? Only the best of course!!
The White Letter Wedding Stationery
(Recently rebranded 17twelve)
((NB: Stationery not Stationary, as Stationary is standing still))
Kerry is very talented, and creates amazing wedding invitations that are that little bit different! She is also giving away this cool print to the first 20 brides.. “Love is only a word until we brought it to Life” an extract from her husbands book! If you follow me on Facebook, you’ll know I’m tempted to walk out the door and back in again.. just to get one!! I only hear glowing reports from Kerry’s brides, so if you want to meet her… come on Tuesday night! Here’s a little peak at the free print.
The Little Cupcakery
Gillian, who actually came to set up her cakes today at the Sample Sale, and my mum (yes my mum also helps at sample sales, open nights.. you name it .. she’s there) came into the room where Gillian had left her cakes.. and said ” ‘WOW’ these are amazing”, and then said, “she could of brought us a cupcake!!” haha! However, fear not the first 20 brides will receive a cupcake in their goodie bag AND she has samples to taste (Phew!).
Rebekah’s veils are featured in my boutique, and her work is just amazing, she does Skype calls with brides around the world and posts her veils off to countries as far away as New Zealand! For brides looking for a veil, you need to go to Rebekah’s studio in Belfast. One of my brides veils was as long as Rebekah’s studio, so whatever you have in mind, Rebekah can make it!
Sharon recently went out on her own, after doing the merchandising for Avoca for years! If you’ve been in my boutique, the flower display above my units was created by Sharon. She makes brooch bouquets in any colour and any style, she can even use your own brooches or source ones for you! Check her out..
Grace & Saviour
I know lots of my brides have already asked if Grace, from Grace & Saviour is coming to my open night.. and she is! She is so creative, has a great eye and if I was getting married again (renewing my vows!!) Grace would be top of my list! You may have seen Grace’s work featured on One Fab Day or you may have read her column in Inspire magazine, Grace travels all around Ireland and is one of the very best wedding stylists, Ireland has to offer.
Tracey recently set up her Macaroon business and has already won “Winner of UK Great Taste Awards 2014” and “Winner of “Best New Business” – North Down Awards 2014. It’s going to be a taste sensation on Tuesday night, as Tracey also has some goodies for the goodie bags!!
Tippy and Gillian
Tippy (make up artist) and Gillian (hair stylist) have recently joined forces, so if you need a make up artist and hair stylist for your wedding day, Tippy and Gillian will be there to help! They’ll even be creating hair and doing the make up for our models on Tuesday, so you can see their work for yourself!
