Getting To Know Dream Wedding Dress
We’re chatting to the wonderful Kathryn, who opened the designer wedding boutique ‘Dream Wedding Dress‘ in 2009. Located a short distance from Nottingham City Centre, the boutique boasts a collection of exquisite wedding dresses, all of which have been expertly designed using luxurious fabrics. We can’t wait to find out more about Dream Wedding Dress, so let’s get stuck in…
How long has the boutique been open for now?
“It’s hard to believe but we have been open for nearly ten years! I came into the bridal world from a completely different professional background and we have gone from strength to strength. Over the years the boutique has become identifiable as the “little shop on the corner”, well known by potential brides even before they are engaged.”
How would you describe the “Dream Wedding Dress’ experience, and what can brides expect when they come to see you for an appointment?
“We offer exclusive use of the boutique during our 90-minute appointments. This ensures a relaxed, unhurried and special experience for our brides. We are on hand with friendly and practical advice on styles. This is based on what the ideas the bride has, the sort of wedding she is having and our years of experience in helping brides to choose their dresses. There is no limit to the number of dresses brides can try on within their appointment. We offer a pressure-free service to enable brides to make the right decision for them.”
Which designers do you stock?
“We are the exclusive Nottingham stockists of award-winning designer collections from Blue by Enzoani and Sassi Holford. Enzoani has just won bridal manufacturer of the year and Sassi Holford has been named as the bridal designer of the year. We also stock White Rose Graceful which is a stunning plus-size collection.”
What is the current trend in wedding dress styles?
“Our amazing 2019 Enzoani Collection is just arriving in store. We are seeing a move towards trumpet and mermaid designs in plain crepe with lacy illusion backs or stunning cut-out detail in lace on the train. Current season designs feature sheer paneling to the front and sides of dresses, but don’t worry, they do come in lined versions as well! By contrast we are seeing soft, floaty, more bohemian designs featuring the most amazing lace. Our brides are really spoilt for choice!”
What is the most popular choice of wedding dress?
“With weddings taking place in such a variety of venues and countries it is hard to pick just one popular style. Whilst the classics never date, we are seeing a lot of brides asking for more simple styles with accents of lace rather than masses of detail. For brides travelling abroad to hot countries more lightweight, packable gowns are popular.”
Do you cater for bridesmaids?
What do you feel makes your service stand out from the crowd?
“We like to think that our exclusive, quality designs and personal service will help with calming any bridal nerves. Over the years our experience has grown within the industry and we enjoy helping brides to find their dream dress with minimal stress. Wedding dresses purchased from us are eligible for £1000 free insurance cover for extra peace of mind. Our 0% finance scheme (subject to status) is very popular for brides who want to spread the cost of purchasing their wedding dress.”
What do you enjoy most about being involved in the wonderful world of weddings?
“For me personally, being involved in a bride’s special day is a privilege. Many brides have concerns about finding a dress to suit her personality, her shape or the type of wedding she is having. There is nothing quite like that moment when a bride sees herself in front of the mirror and her eyes light up, when you know she is thinking ‘this is it’.”
