Our Brighton & Hove bridal boutique opened its doors 29th November 2014 and since then we had an amazing journey. Opening a bridal shop just before Christmas when wedding dress shopping is the last things of brides minds was a scary experience, but once the Christmas was over the real fun started!
We attended some amazing wedding fairs in Sussex and London, including South Lodge Hotel, Hilton Park Lane and The National Wedding Show London Olympia of course. The brides had a fantastic reception to our exclusive to the UK and Sussex bridal collections and the first wedding dress sales started to come in.
Finding brides looking for wedding dresses in Brighton, Hove, Guildford, Horsham, London and Sussex overall by attending wedding fairs is one thing, but having our brides finding our Brighton wedding dress shop online is another challenge altogether. So building a best bridal retailer website was my upmost aspiration from the outset.
I entered The Bridal Buyer Awards 2015 on the off chance as I could recognise that we have created something truly special for MODE Bridal, but for a new start Brighton Bridal shop to actually get in to The Bridal Buyer Awards 2015 Best Bridal Retailer Website category was amazing! This has given MODE Bridal Boutique kudos within the bridal industry and certainly put MODE Bridal on the map when it comes to brides finding the best bridal shops Brighton & Hove, Sussex!
We are absolutely delighted with this achievement and cannot wait for the Awards ceremony on 14th September. Of course the team MODE Bridal would love to win, but we know that to become a finalist in this very prestigious bridal industry award in the best bridal retailer website category in our first year of trading is something to be proud of in itself.
Keep your fingers crossed for us and best of lack to all six finalists who truly deserve to be in this competition!
