How is it the end of June already! Summer has well and truly begun and we have had a great start to peak wedding season here at Vicki's Bridal Boutique. So lets see what we have been up to in our June recap...
June started with a styled shoot at The Cherry Barn in Peasmarsh. Organised by Ruby the Social Coach, a team of wedding suppliers came together to showcase their work in a photoshoot. Styled shoots are always a great way to meet new people and have a chance to create content for our businesses. Megan headed to the shoot with a few of our dresses and watched the magic happen.
We received the very exciting news this month that we have been crowned WINNERS of the Muddy Stilettos Award for the "Best Bridal Store in Kent". We are over the moon and feel so grateful for the recognition on the hard work we put into the boutique. The award is public voted so it means so much to us that our brides and members of the public think we are deserving of this award. We are attending the award ceremony next month where we get to collect our award and meet fellow winners. Thank you so much to everyone who voted for us. Words can not describe how much it means to us!
As a boutique we love working with local suppliers and vendors within the wedding industry. We think it is important to support fellow independent businesses especially when we all have the same passion. Weddings! Supporting local is something that is also very important to our brides and we love it when we get a joint bride with someone like a local venue or photographer.
With that being said we are super excited to announce that we are now Recommended Suppliers for The Oak Barn Frame Farm. This award winning venue is nestled in a peaceful valley below the village of Benenden. The Grade II listed barns provide a stunning setting for weddings. We have had many brides have their big day at this gorgeous venue over the last two years, so when we were contacted by Owner of The Oak Barn Deana, we were very excited to be given the opportunity to collaborate.
Our Vicki's Bride family grew some more this month as Connie, Laura and Maria all said yes to their dream wedding dress! Megan had another pinch me moment this month when another bride to join our family was actually her best friend Phoebe. Megan held a special appointment with Phoebe and her bridal party last month and when a booking came through this month for Phoebe it was a very exciting moment. The dress Phoebe chose is her in a dress, when we got this dress in for our collection Megan said "Phoebe would love this dress" and she was right. Megan will be standing next to her as bridesmaid at her wedding next year. We are so exciting for the photos!
As our family grows with brides-to-be, many of our brides are also saying 'I Do'! 10 of our brides had their dream wedding day this month. Congratulations too Alison, Lucy, Daley, Kirsty, Tia, Hannah, Rochelle, Alice, Bridie & Sophie. A part from helping brides find their dress, there is nothing love more than receiving photos from our brides on their wedding day, seeing their vision come to life. And I am sure you can all agree they all look beautiful.
July is looking like a busy month for us, we kick off the month with a Trunk Show from Sophie Rose Bridal and we are really looking forward to having this gorgeous collection in store. There is still time to book appointments for the trunk show, so if you are interested in trying on the Sophie Rose Bridal Collection, book an appointment between the 6th and 17th July.
We can't wait to see what July brings...are you going to become a Vicki's Bride?
