Its bride of the month time! Our stunning Bride, Jenny, sent us some images of her and her new husbands big day, and a little bit about her time with us, here at Cheadle Bride.
“My experience at Cheadle Bride was amazing right from the off- from my initial contact to arrange an appointment right up until I picked up my dress after steaming.
I’d been to another bridal boutique before visiting Cheadle Bride and had also had a good experience there, but it wasn’t anything like the personal, relaxed and friendly experience I had with Cheadle Bride.
I knew I wanted quite a simple dress. I didn’t want anything too heavy or too fussy as I’m not someone who wears dresses loads and I wanted to feel comfortable. We were having two wedding ceremony’s - a Hindu one and a civil ceremony and I wanted a dress for the civil ceremony that would look good next to colourful sarees.
I initially got in touch with Cheadle Bride because I had seen a beautiful dress on their website which was everything I thought that I wanted. However, at my initial appointment, I tried a few dresses on, including the one I had seen on the website. The dresses were all beautiful but I just felt that they weren’t really ‘me’ and the one I had seen online just didn’t feel how I thought it would. The assistant suggested having a look at the sample sale rail.
I tried one of the sample dresses on (even though I wasn't convinced it would suit me) and I was so surprised at how much I loved the lace. It was so different to the dress I originally thought I wanted though, so I didn’t want to commit straight away, but went back a few days later with my Mum and was so pleased that the dress was still there.
Catrin got us excited about the possibilities of adding a belt and taking it in a bit here and there, and whilst me and Mum were talking about the dress she brought out a tray of tea and biscuits. I didn’t realise at the time, but choosing your wedding dress is a really emotional commitment. Cheadle Bride is a really special place because they understand this. Catrin was really relaxed and friendly, and every member of staff I came into contact with was lovely, there was no pressure and no rush, just lots of good advice. I felt like we were with friends.
We took the dress away that day and had a few alterations made by a lady recommended by Cheadle Bride and brought it back to the shop to be steamed the week before the wedding.
We got married on a very snowy, wintry, blizzardy day and the dress was perfect thanks so much to everyone at Cheadle Bride x”
What beautiful photos of your special day!! Jenny, we wish you and your new hubby lots of luck and love for a bright future together! Thank you for choosing us to share a special memory with!
Lots of love, Team CB xx
