As a bridal boutique owner I absolutely love what I do, I love to hear about the plans and the excitement in the lead up to the big day. I love even more when after the wedding day brides send me in pictures of their day, after listening to all the planning and getting excited with them its amazing to see the vision all brought together!
A few weeks ago I got an unexpected card in the post. It was from Emily, my first ever bride I had when I opened Bridal Reloved Liverpool in June 2016. I remembered Emily and her mum’s visit to the boutique really well for a few reasons. One, because I was so excited and enjoying myself helping find a wedding dress for my first ever customer! And two, because when Emily found her dress with Bridal Reloved it was such a special moment!

Emily chose a stunning A-line gown from award winning British designer Charlotte Balbier. Emily’s stunning dress was part of Charlotte’s ‘Iscoyd Park’ collection, named after the venue that Charlotte herself married her husband Teddy in 2014. The dress was made of a soft chiffon skirt and gorgeous embellished bodice. with a feminine sweetheart neckline. The sophisticated beadwork on this dress was just perfect to fit in with Emily’s over all feel for her big day. It was such an amazing moment when Emily found her dress. In the dressing room, I could instantly see Emily’s body language change as soon as she stepped in to the gown, I think she knew then it was the one! As she stepped out to show her mum it got pretty emotional! Emily’s mum cried seeing how gorgeous her daughter looked, Emily cried at her mum’s reaction and how she felt in her dress, and me, well I got caught up in the emotion and excitement that I started crying too! It was just perfect.
It was so lovely to receive Emily’s thank you card in the post with such lovely words. It helped cement the appointment as one I’ll never forget!
“I knew I had to have the dress as soon as I tried it on. I had so many compliments about it, and didn’t want to ever take it off!”
“Thank you so much for all your help, patience and kindness when we visited, you made it a very special day.”
