Well our beloved Father Christmas has been and gone and is back at the North Pole with his feet up for another year! We have had a marvellous Christmas and we hope you all have too. I always find that having that time over the festive period gives us chance to look back and reflect on all the highlights of the year just passed, and look forward to all that is coming up in the new year ahead.
There has been some incredible highlights for Lisa Rose this year, and 2016 is one that will always be special to me personally as it’s the year I tied the knot myself 🙂 If you haven’t already seen them, I wrote a bit of a series following my journey to the aisle, you can catch up on those here.
We’ve also had some wonderful highlights professionally. Firstly we launched our brand new website in April this year and have so much wonderful feedback. We were so pleased to be able to showcase our wedding gowns more effectively and the introduction of the online booking form for appointments has been welcomed by so many of our customers.
Talking of the all important wedding dresses(!) We also introduced the fabulous Charlotte Balbier range this year, to our bridal boutique here in Solihull…
Being awarded the Platinum Stockist Award – for the second year running, from Blue by Enzoani was another high. We love working with this designer and were so proud to have won this two years in a row.
Our girlie shopping trip to London was a fantastic day. The whole team travelled down to our capital city for the White Gallery London Bridal Exhibition. And of course, no self respecting girlie shopping trip is complete without a spot of lunch!
Last but not least, the many, many, amazing brides and bridesmaids we have met this year have all been wonderful. We love our job and it’s all down to the wonderful ladies we get to meet on this wonderful journey they’re on to becoming a Mrs!
We also have to give a mention to our very last bride of the year – Natalie Burnside, who gets married on New Years Eve in a stunning Mia Mia gown! She has had a pretty turbulent year and really touched us with her story and we would really just like to wish her all the very best for 2017 and the future with her husband and two gorgeous daughters.
Now with Christmas well and truly behind us… it’s on to 2017!!!
We have a fantastic year in store so please do keep popping back to see all the exciting things we’re up to. We do have to let you know though, that we have some AMAZING January offers coming up including £200 off 2017 Collection wedding dresses ordered this month* and 3 for 2 on adult Dessy bridesmaid dresses!
We will also have an ex sample sale throughout the whole month with selected wedding gowns being offered at half price or less. If you’re planning a wedding or have become engaged over Christmas (congratulations!) then waste no time… make an appointment using our online form, to come in to our Solihull boutique, near Birmingham and find the wedding dress of your dreams.
Happy New Year to you all 🙂
