We have showcased at a few wedding shows now, and this year we were delighted to be asked to step on board with Luxe Wedding Shows.
Dubious as ever we took a long hard look at the line up and noticed that we had worked along side with some of the other companies, so we knew we were in good hands.
This Season has been fantastic. We have had a great response to our spring package deals, Each show our stand has been flooded with people!
We`ve been so busy we even had to pull in extra staff. The 1920`s and 1950`s styles have proved to be very popular this season. There seems to be more ` last minute brides ` this year but also several getting married in 2016- so a great mix of customers.
Our last show of the season was on Sunday 23rd March at the lovely Strathblane Country House where the Luxe wedding show team had a great footfall of serious buyers and not just browsers. The brides have all been lovely; there is a realy good quality of clientele. A lot of the brides have a healthy budget but they are looking for good value for money, they know exactly what they want. They`re very into blingy vintage; the 20`s look is so popular with Downton Abbey and the Grat Gatsby at the moment.
As a male running a Venue Dresing Company which in its self is a very female orientated industry ,it comes as a slight shock for the groom but its also a reasurance as i ( Thomas ) can see where the groom is having difficulty in seeing where his hard earned cash is going . But they are more releaved when i say i can claw back some of that cash to put back in the grooms pocket for the bar on his wifes special day .
And now that the groom is more relaxed he can enjoy all the free samples and give any groom the remote control for our Led Dance Floor and up lighters and ........theres that smile :).
So its a happy Thank You to all Brides ,Past, present and Future for allowing us to share in your special day.
