Well what a whirlwind it has been. We have loved hand picking each and every dress for the boutique. We have put our full attention into making the boutique, a comfortable and relaxing environment and we are so pleased to have achieved it.
Up until 4th September 2019, we have worked behind the scenes (and the white washed windows!) to get everything in place.
Thursday 5th September 2019, saw the pre-launch of the boutique. We had around 25 guests drop in for drinks and some yummy sweet treats, provided kindly by Bake for the Soul. It was an opportunity to have friends and family with us, to celebrate our opening.
Saturday 7th September 2019, saw the opening of our doors to our amazing brides to be. We did have one cancellation, but it was due to the lovely lady having just found her dress earlier that day. We don't mind this at all, we're just happy someone has found 'the one' for them. A sweet rejection, if you like..
We had a lovely bride to be pop in with her mum. She had her dress already, but was looking for a veil. She was surprised when we told her to bring her dress with her later that day, so she could try the veils with her dress, to ensure a perfect match. We aren't precious, we are practical and we care. It was so nice to see the smile on her face and her mums, when we found such a lovely match to her dress. She looked amazing!
The highlight of the day was definitely the lovely Emily and her bride tribe of no less than 6 lovely ladies. Emily was an absolute joy to help and after trying on a number of dresses, it was her mother in law to be, who helped pick out the dress, that turned out to be 'the one'!!! This made it all the more special. The afternoon was full of smiles and happy tears, it was an absolute honour to be part of the experience and really cemented a thought process, running this lovely boutique is going to be a fabulous journey......
