Why did you choose bridal?

I am working as a wedding planner since 7 years and it was always a dream to serve my brides the main parts for their wedding.

How did you get started in the bridal industry?

I started in 2011 as a wedding planner. Before, I worked as an event manager in a huge agency and more of my fellow students and friends asked me to organise their weddings. So to fund my own wedding agency was only a question of time.

What was your motivation or inspiration to open a bridal store?

I want to help finding my brides their dream bridal dress and to create the time in my store as an event they do not forget!

Tell us about your store style?

We have a real personal style. It looks a little bit like you are in a living room and you can spend your best time with friends and family in our store.

Tell us about your team

It’s me and two other beautiful girls. Both of them were my planning brides. Meanwhile it’s like a small family.

What sets you apart from other retailers?

The moment my bride says YES to her dress!

Most of the time, yes.

Our brides love the classic lines and sometimes the special ones ;)

Do your brides stick to traditional white/ivory or are more of your brides trying coloured gowns?

That’s different. But most of them stick the traditional ivory bridal dress but some are always a little bit more brave and choose the coloured gowns.

What do you feel today's bride wants to be?

They want to be special, different, sexy – but also traditional. It’s a mix!
