Getting to Know… Lori G Bridal
The New Year started with a real good feeling at Lori G Bridal Studio after a complete revamp over the Christmas holidays. There wasn’t much time for rest, from knocking through walls to creating a new bridal suite and reception area to painting, decorating and new carpets throughout. But that’s what makes Irish sisters Lorraine & Sandra happy; to see their beautiful boutique looking its absolute best for their discerning clients.
Having bought the building back in 2005, 10 years of working hard, the business has gone from strength to strength. Lorraine had a vision of what she wanted to create in a bridal shop, the relaxed ambience, the style, the mood, not to mention a service like no other bridal shop. Now, 10 years on from what was a dream, Lori G has become a well known Bridal shop in the Midlands. This is down to Lorraine & the team at Lori G. They have built a reputation for being one of the best in the business, with an eye for detail and a service second to none. Lorraine’s vast experience and background in the world of fashion and bridal means she is a complete and utter perfectionist. “I am obsessed with making sure the dress is totally perfect when it leaves my shop. I won’t settle for any less. The dress is always steamed, ironed and looking beautiful for the bride to collect; the after care is one of the elements of the process I care about the most. We don’t send our dresses home in bags squishing all the time and effort we have spent getting them ironed and looking perfect. We also offer a dressing service whereby I come along on the day of the wedding and dress the bride and bridesmaids, taking the stress away and ensuring everyone is dressed to perfection.”
The new revamped studio offers a reception area on arrival to sit, have a drink if you wish and browse through albums of past brides or bridal magazines. Then you will be shown through to the bridal suite which is exclusively yours for the time you are there. Lori G offers a one to one appointment where you have the privacy to try on with hands on help to get you in and out of the dresses. Your bridal party can sit on the comfortable couches with a glass of fizz whilst soaking up the special atmosphere.
So, if you’re on the hunt for your dream dress and looking for a special, personal service, get in touch with Lori G.
