Inspiration for Brides

Posted by Aoife O Gorman

Working in the Bridal industry, it is so important to recognize excellent suppliers for my customers.

So here is a mini list of companies for any brides who need help finding the best resource.

I will do another blog with more added in the near future 🙂

Wedding Inspiration:

There is no better way to get inspiration for a wedding than from a local wedding blog. Bloggers, such as Helen, know the suppliers, have an eye for detail and a love for everything wedding so if you want inspiration then visit her fantastic website.

One of the most important things to note is that most people have various sizes across their bust, waist and hips. It is rare to find a bride who is one size all over. With this in mind, I have to recommend the best seamstress in Cardiff who can adjust any bridal gown to ensure the perfect fit.

This person is Rhiannon J. She is a lady in demand and who can work magic with your bridal gown but she books out fast so book in well in advance

To finish the beautiful dress, each bride wants to ensure both her hair and makeup are looking fantastic on her day. It is so important as the head piece needs to be placed correctly, the veil and also the overall look for the day is required to be perfect. Based on excellent reviews, I would recommend using a company called Brideology. This company is fantastic and has won the Welsh Hair & Beauty Award 2014.

Room Decor:

If any of you ladies would like to spruce up your wedding venue then I would not hesitate to recommend Cherish Chair Covers.

This is a fantastic family run business, open over 5 years, who can provide everything from candelabra or flower centrepieces, chair covers, lighting, candy carts, table cloths, rose trees and their newest edition includes a sequin backdrop.

For more information then contact them on their website.

Photography & Wedding Planner:

Again, this supplier is very important; you need to capture the special moments of your day and look back at them – especially when looking fabulous! It is impossible to be with all your guests every second of the day so you will miss valuable moment that your friends and family enjoy. The photographer’s job is to capture your moments from getting ready to the actual wedding, every aspect of your day and how much fun everybody is having while they celebrate your precious moment. I highly recommend  Esme Charles Photography as Sarah is not only a photographer, but a wedding planner. Her attention to detail is second to none and directing this at a female audience, this is exactly what you want. Her details are:

Bridal Dresses, Bridesmaid Dresses, Accessories & Jewellery:

We pride ourselves as a bridal store with a difference. CocoMio has unique changing space, excellent designers, a maximum price of ÂŁ2000 for bridal dresses in store and we can provide beautiful dresses that are different or traditional including lace, satin, beaded and have fantastic shape to fit.

We also offer a selection of bridesmaid dresses which have a huge selection of colour and choice to ensure all our bridal parties are happy.

We have Joyce Jackson veils which can be customised, handmade jewellery that cannot be sourced anywhere else in the UK and also handmade belts and garters to finish the package.
