Hi, my name is Jana and I am the owner of Mode Bridal. This is my first ever blog (so go easy on me please) and I want to tell you a little bit about me and the concept behind my boutique. Read on and you will see why Mode Bridal is a little wedding dress heaven not to be missed!
I remember my first ever experience of wedding dress shopping. It was 2008, I was engaged and so excited to go and find that dream gown. I was know for my love of shopping and beautiful things (shoes in particular!), so finding the dress seemed like an easiest thing in the world... Until I started ...
I soon realised that as a bride you are entering a world of truly unknown: designer names that you are not necessarily familiar with; dresses that you love, but struggle to find a place that sells them; taking time off work for appointments; waiting for the dress to be made for months; alterations... Overwhelming!
Then my best friend got married in January 2014... And it was another level of stress all together. She was not able to order her wedding dress and was limited to sample sales only because almost all dresses are made in China and every boutique we went to could not do a rush order- run up to Chinese New Year we were told time and time again. So I thought there has to be a better way!
And there is... The wedding dress is one gown that you will remember all your life, so it has to be beautiful, unique and a reflection of your personality. And the experience of finding that dress has to be one to be truly enjoyed and cherished.
At Mode Bridal you will find collections that are truly unique; recognised for their style and quality; and each dress is individually hand made for you using your measurements.
