I can’t believe it.  Today we’ve reached toddler stages of running a business and The Secret Dress House turns an amazing three years old and what a whirlwind it has been. 

I’ve been so lucky to be able to ‘live the dream’ and work in such a stunning industry, I mean who wouldn’t want to do what we do and help brides find their outfit for their happiest day of their lives.  I LOVE a good wedding and we get to play a part in hundreds each year. 

From as soon as brides walk through our doors I adore the whole process - hearing about their plans and engagement stories, helping them choose ‘the one’, tailoring it for a perfect fit and seeing them days before the wedding to collect their dresses, sometimes I even have a little tear! 

But I couldn’t have done this on my own.  The dresses we stock are belters and my designers are a dream to work with, my team are second to none and have become my family, my actual family save my life every day with support, plenty of tea and often last minutes requests for childcare with my beaut of a boy Alfie but my husband, my darling darling husband has helped make ‘the dream’ happen and I love him to bits.  I've bagged myself a good'un there gang.

To all of you THANK YOU, I’ll be raising a glass to you all later (might even share a bit with you guys on Saturday J )

As we head into our fourth year we’ve got a fun-packed schedule ahead with new designers coming into the boutique, designer days booked through September to December (first up Lusan Mandongus on 24th September, more news to follow) and events planned for the new year.  Thanks for sticking with us for the ride, here’s to a long and prosperous future.

Make-up masterclass

Here at The Secret Dress House, we want to be with our brides every step of the way of their most exciting journey in life – from searching for the perfect dress to feeling fabulous walking down the aisle. We know that finding your dress is only the first step to fabulousness so we plan to work with the best suppliers in our industry to offer you top tips on make-up, hair, flowers, accessories and more. 

We’ve decided to come up with a programme of master classes to get you looking glamorous on your big day and the first stop is beauty.  Your make-up choices can be as defining as 'the' dress so we're offering a master class that will run on Thursday 6thMarch, with the wonderful Antonia from Elle Au Naturel, to help you gather top tips on your perfect look.  Why not bring your bridesmaids and pick up fantastic ideas that you can all utilise on the big day?  The evening’s itinerary will run as follows:

6:30pm – drinks (and cake, there’s never not the right time for cake) reception at The Secret Dress House

6:30 to 7pm – a chance to browse the boutique for dresses and gorgeous accessories

7pm – one hour long master class tutorial begins with Antonia

8pm – Q & A with Antonia, browse the best make-up products, chat to The Secret Dress House team

9pm – event ends

Tickets will cost £20 per person, available by calling the boutique on 01737 243686 (on-line booking coming soon) and there will be exclusive discounts for any purchases made on the night.  Space is limited so reserve your space today.  Can’t wait to see you here.
