Every day, customers ask us “what’s it like to work in a bridal boutique? It must be so great!” It is, and we thought it might be fun to keep a diary of our lives as Blushies…
Diary of a Blushie, Part I
While I never expected to work in a bridal shop, but I’ve come to discover that wedding dresses (and brides!) are truly amazing. There is so much care taken in the structure, shape, and design of a dress. You will never have a garmet that fits you as well as your wedding dress does. There’s also so much variety in the style of a wedding dress—we can work with you to find what suits your personality and lets your beauty shine through.
There are a few phrases that make specific dresses come to my mind instantly.
If a bride says to me, “I love a huge skirt” I might show her one of my favourites from Pronovias:
If I am told, “I want to be original,” I might show her our new Enzoani:
If I am told, “I want something sweet and simple,” I would show her this lovely sweetheart neckline by Ella:
So you can see why I enjoy playing dress-up all day, putting women in clothing that makes them beam, blush, and cry.
At Blush we indulge in the feminine: the shop smells of lavender, there’s more silk, tulle and lace than you could imagine in one place, and vanities line the walls showing off sparkly jewels. Searching for your wedding dress is a fully assisted experience (I can do up corsets in my sleep), and your consultant is fully committed to making sure you’ve seen all your options. I often find myself wishing all shopping could be so easy!
