Well here we are ladies – head first into 2018 and another year behind us. We hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and New Year, and a special hello to all of you newly engaged brides-to-be that are visiting us for the first time – CONGRATULATIONS!
2017 was a brilliant year for us her at Lisa Rose Bridal so we wanted to do a little reflection post and take a look back on some of our highlights, get the kettle on and join us won’t you…
First of all, we have to do a huge shout out to all of our beautiful 2017 brides. Without you all of course, we wouldn’t be here and you have been a wonderful bunch. Some of you have featured on our blog personally – Ellie, Jodie and Kirsty and we’d love to hear from any other brides who would also like to share their wedding here on our blog.
Just drop us a note and if you have already tied the knot then we’ll send over our questionnaire. If you’re a 2018 bride, we’ll make a note to contact you after your big day for all the amazing details!
We also held a number of designer day events for a range of wedding dress designers at our bridal shop Birmingham. Including Sophia Tolli and Enzoani where we showcased dresses from the new collections as well as offering incredible discounts not often seen on brand new wedding dresses so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for more of those this year!
Of course one of the biggest things to have happened last year was the engagement of Price Harry and the stunning Meghan Markle – such a wonderful modern fairytale. Fashion photographer Alexi Lubomirski captured the pair so beautifully for their official announcement photographs and we cannot wait to see the pictures from their big day this Spring. I think you will agree, Meghan is going to make THE most beautiful bride.
Alexandra’s journey to the aisle
For those of you who have been with us for a while, you may remember that back in 2016 I charted my journey to the aisle here on the blog. I shared the entire run up to my big day, talked about my highs and lows and all the key elements and suppliers around the planning for my wedding to Phil.
Well in 2017 we introduced a new bride – Alexandra, who has started sharing her journey to the aisle with us too! Throughout the next few months we will see Alexandra’s journey continue so please be sure to keep an eye on the blog for her regular updates.
Private Facebook Group
Last year we began a private group for just Lisa Rose brides to access. Once you purchase your wedding gown from our bridal shop Birmingham, we will give you access to the group where you will find support and encouragement from all our other brides on the run up to their big day. It’s a lovely place for sharing, asking for advice, or recommendations etc. We also do regular live streams where we feature different topics and try to answer some of the common questions that we find brides to be are left wondering about.
Coming up in 2018
We have so much in the pipeline for this year and are anticipating some incredible new collections from our bridal designers. For all the latest news, updates and information you can of course use this blog, but also follow us on our Instagram and Facebook pages where we post updates every day.
Just because it is imminent and we are SO excited about it! We wanted to share our fist bit of news for 2018 which is that we are about to receive a delivery of Jenny Packham bridesmaid dresses and we cannot wait. Jenny Packham is a world renowned designer having created gowns for the Duchess of Cambridge, Angelina Jolie and Helen Mirren to name but a few. Her designs are to die for and the Bridesmaid collection is one not to be missed.
We would love to welcome you into our ‘Old Chapel’ bridal shop here in Solihull so please do get in touch or visit our appointment request page now, we can’t wait to meet you!
