As some of you may know, this is our first ever blog and we are all sooooo excited to get started! Our main aim is to let you get to know the staff here at Amilou Bridal a little better, and give you a little insight into what its like to manage and work in a bridal shop. Here you will find all the latest news and gossip that has been going on in store including the latest hilarious thing that has come out of our Saturday girls’ mouth (and there have been some crackers…) to the funny and sometimes emotional stories our customers share with us whilst happy tears are being spilled.
Last month the team here at Amilou Bridal were lucky enough to travel down and attend the spectacular Harrogate Bridal Show- Europe’s leading Bridal Trade Fair from the 11th -13th of September! We could barely contain our excitement as there was so much to see and do it was really overwhelming!
One of the first things we spotted was the Sweetie Cart! Don’t think we were ever away from it! The sugar definitely helped to keep us going throughout the three days! After having a little wander around some of the stalls and chatting to some future suppliers we sat down to watch the main event, the Catwalk show!
Arriving at the catwalk show we were faced with the extremely hard choice between orange juice and Prosecco… (The Prosecco if I may say made all the walking less painful!) There were numerous catwalk shows throughout the three days, featuring different designers, which gave us a great opportunity to see a wide range of bridal gowns, bridesmaid dresses and mother of the bride outfits .They had it all!
Thankfully we had our trusty photographer Erin with her pink selfie stick (yes…a pink selfie stick) to take a video and numerous photos of the gowns so we could look back at them later! A truly professional show!
We loved every minute of our trip to Harrogate! It was definitely very successful and we returned full of inspiration and a bulging order book at the end of it! The best news is we are so excited to be introducing and stocking the most fabulous dresses by Justin Alexander, Sincerity, Nicole Sposa, and Mark Lesley. Also new accessories stockists too, watch out on our Facebook page for announcements as things arrive.
