What Is Normal?
Oh, and it's going to be the best day of my life."

With the weather warming up & the restrictions cooling off, we're seeing our diary filling up with bridal appointments again.
To make sure of this, they are accepting a new style of wedding: smaller, more relaxed, easily changed & cheaper.
For many, they will now plan their wedding over 3 months, instead of 18.
Which means we, as a bridal store, are changing too.

But, as our suppliers adapt to this new world, we have access to growing stock on hand lists.
This means you could have your wedding gown within days or weeks, instead of months.
And, for those who can't or don't want to spend big, you'll find a growing collection of beautiful wedding dresses under $1000.
Any other advice?
Think outside the box, particularly if you are eloping or having a very small outside wedding.
You don't have to wear white or ivory. You don't even have to wear a wedding gown!
Many formal dresses come in shades of champagne or blush & even have a small train. Paired with a long veil or bridal jewellery (which we can also help you with) you have a modern bridal look that will suit your modern wedding day.
For your bridesmaids, keep it simple. Give your tribe a colour palette & theme (rustic, beach, contemporary) & let them go for it. Chances are they will feel more comfortable in a style they have chosen for themselves, & may well wear that dress again.
But, in some ways, it's not all bad.
Pre-covid weddings were in danger of becoming too much about the event & not enough about the love. If nothing else, this pandemic has reminded us that love is more important than anything else.
All that really matters is the love. A beautiful moment captured by Jamie Way Photography.
