Since 2017 the business has retailed sophisticated, high quality wedding dresses, with accessories such as veils and tiaras also on offer. Gowns are brand new, ex-sample, or pre-loved and often sourced directly from designers, enabling brides to find their dream dress without breaking the bank. Adjusting or upcycling dresses is a key part of the business’ ethos.
One of multiple stores across the country, the business is a highly favoured bridal boutique that thrives upon the high demand for premium quality wedding dresses.
Its indisputable reputation is evidenced through its multiple bridal shop awards and strong online following.
Nestled amongst independent businesses and high street chains in the beautiful market town of Wallingford, Oxford, the boutique attracts customers locally and nationally.
Brides and their companions are welcomed into a well-organised shop floor, featuring tasteful decoration to ensure a relaxed shopping experience. A ‘boudoir’ fitting area allows clients to be fitted in private before revealing their dresses to friends and family.
The store’s online presence is outstanding, including a professional website which displays all gowns available, exceptional testimonials, blog posts, and an online form for brides to sell their dresses once worn. Its Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook accounts also have an impressive combined following of over 8,000 and continues to grow.
This is the ideal opportunity for a current wedding retailer looking to expand, or for someone interested in entering the exciting bridal industry for the first time.
Utilising the store’s excellent online presence through further online advertising could expand the current client base. Additionally, increased exhibition attendance and industry partnerships are important ways in which to showcase and develop this business.
Hiring additional staff to run the shop and extending the opening hours could also lead to greater sales by giving the clients greater flexibility.
