Our Brides are our prize
The last few weeks have been a bit of a rollercoaster. Here’s the lowdown…
To my utter amazement, I was chosen as a finalist for the Best Bridal Retailer at the Dorset Wedding Suppliers Awards 2017… despite only trading for one year!
Once the shock had worn off, I pulled myself together to attend a little pre-event soirée at the spectacular Kings Arms Hotel in Christchurch, where I rubbed shoulders with my fellow finalists and got a tantalizing taste of what the big night had in store for us all.
Held at the Bournemouth Pavilion, the black tie event required a spectacular gown and a major confidence boost on my part; never before had I attended such a shindig, and it’s safe to say my nerves were shot!
After a few sleepless nights and many a pep talk, the evening finally arrived and I rocked up with my gorgeous husband and fellow Brides With Curves gals. Bubbles flowed freely and over-excited small talk buzzed around the ballroom. The atmosphere was electric!
Given the short amount of time Brides With Curves has been trading, I didn’t think for a minute we’d claim the crown. So, when a Ringwood-based winner was announced, I wasn’t as crestfallen as some of the other longer-established bridal shops.
It was a fabulous experience and I am flattered beyond belief to have been a finalist. But at the end of the day, no medal, trophy or magnum bottle of fizz beats the happiness and confidence my brides feel when they find the wedding dress of their dreams.
Yep, my beautiful brides are my winning prize every time…
