Often we are asked to attend the wedding and dress the bride and bridesmaids, this is a total pleasure for us and takes a lot of pressure off the bride.
We deliver the dresses, steam all it in situ and then dress the bride and maids when the time is right. It really does take a lot of pressure off mum and the bridesmaids but also somehow gives the bride a great comfort feeling that we are there and her gown will be looked after and she will be dressed expertly.
Today I attended the wedding of one of my gorgeous clients Lanna. She married at
Burnham Beeches Hotel in Berkshire and was wearing simply the most stunning
SASSI HOLFORD gown. What a glorious and sunny day it was and I have to say even I cried when she walked down the aisle. I could hear the girls gasping at her gown as the chiffon floated behind her. I felt totally choked and so very proud.
I am not sure this is normal, and yes I do get this choked up feeling when all my clients leave with their gowns, I feel a huge surge of excitement for them. I think perhaps that I am a bridzilla that owns a wedding shop. To add another dimension I am a bridzilla that owns a wedding shop that is getting married………..My goodness. I am engulfed in happiness.
Anyway back to dressing my gorgeous clients. Given the massively positive response we have had to this I have decided to formally to offer this service as part of the ELLIE SANDERSON experience.
We will be able to do weddings within a 25 mile radius of the boutique and will agree a small charge to cover our petrol and staff costs.
Our priority will be to remove all pressure from the bridal party. We will steam and prepare the brides gown, the bridesmaids and even the mother of the bride if needed. Of course if the grooms outfit needs a freshen up we are on hand to do that too!
So if you are getting married next year and love the sound of this new service, watch this space. As soon as we are ready we will be emailing all our girls with an update.
