Its Tuesday - Shoesday!
We can't help, but get excited when a bride brings her shoes in to try on with her dress! They are very rarely the simple, bridal, satin ivory numbers nowadays, although there is always a place for such a classic shoe.
However, for one reason and another, our brides have become savvy to the fact, that shoes are not just for your wedding day, they can be for life! Choosing a shoe that expresses your personality or perhaps in a shade of blue, allowing you to tick off your "Something Blue" seems to be more and more popular with today's bride and we're all for it! #irregularchoice #jimmychoo #laboutin #rachelsimpson #charlottemills #rainbowclub #next #newlook we see them all here and in all sorts of colours and patterns.
How nice to be able to wear that special pair of shoes for and anniversary or birthday celebration - they will always hold a special place in your heart.........
We cannot express how important it is to have your shoes chosen in advance of your first dress fitting!
Without wearing a heel of the correct height, our seamstress cannot determine the length of your hemline, so at the very least, please bring a pair of shoes that are of the same heel height that you hope to find your wedding day shoes to be as this will be so helpful. Thank you! T.G.x
Welcome to another new week at Truly Gorgeous!
Well, after last week's blog, we have been inundated with thank you cards and letters from our recent (and not so recent - It's never too late!) brides.
We are still in the midst of fittings and alterations season, so receiving these wonderful photos and kind words, offer light relief during a time where our fingers are sore and our knees tired!
Here are a small collection of the thanks we received this week................. T.G. x
We've had a very busy couple of weeks, filled with final fittings and dress collections.
This is always such a lovely part of our job! Seeing the excitement and anticipation on the faces of the bride herself and her wedding party when they finally walk out of the boutique with THEIR dress. It makes everything feel so real for them - is what we hear time and time again!
After building up a strong emotional relationship with the bride and her loved ones over the previous months, it can be sometimes sad to say goodbye, but such a joy when after a few weeks, we receive a photo of our Truly Gorgeous bride! Do always send a photograph of you on your big day to wherever you found your gown, as it is the best "thank you" you could possibly give us and will put a smile on our faces to last through the week!
So, he asked me and I said yes. At that moment, I knew exactly what wedding dress would be mine! I have been working in Truly Gorgeous for 3 years now, and in that time, I am fortunate enough to 'guinee pig' model dresses for Sunay (the Owner) when sales people from our Designers call round with their new collections. I have to say this is one of the best parts of my job! Therefore I know what works for my body shape and also which styles I prefer, I do like all things vintage and therefore this would have to be included in my choice. I made up my mind very easy, although I did have a fun afternoon with the TG girls, trying a few other dresses on 'just to be sure'!

#TBT #Throwbackthursday It was waaaay back in 2000 when Katherine Zeta Jones married in to the Douglas dynasty!
With two pieces set to make a come back, this was a lovely example of bridal fashion in the naughties!
Week by week we receive such beautiful thank you cards and messages – every one is so heartfelt and we truly appreciate the time taken to send us them. Thank you for your thank yous!!
Recently we received an email from a lady who has ordered a dress with us, and it simply established why we work so hard on our service and dress selection. Thank you Sam – look forward to seeing you again soon.
I recently came into your shop with my mum, after being recommended by my soon to be sister in law who got married June last year. You and your staff were truly amazing!
You made me feel so special, and like no one else in that shop mattered but me!
I was nervous, but you both made me feel so comfortable! And I would like to say a huge thank you for that!
I believe you have also had my other soon to be sister in law in, only yesterday.. who also purchased her wedding dress from you! Who has also, said nothing but positive things about your shop!
I will continue to spread to word about truly gorgeous! Your dresses and service are perfect!
All that preparation… the search for “The Dress”, finding “The Dress”, alterations on “The Dress” – It’s perfect!!
… And then after The Big Day? Well, a little less perfect. (Uncle Roger became a little clumsy with his whiskey, and three-year-old Millie may have got a little over excited with her handful of chocolate cake).
Never fear! Enjoy your day and know that all those little mishaps can be erased. Bring your dress back to us and we’ll have it dry cleaned and back to it’s original glory.
The cost is £149, and after it is cleaned it will arrive back beautifully packed with tissue paper in a handy box, perfectly sized to store on top of a wardrobe or under your bed.
Give us a call 01243 788090 for more details.
