Continuing on with my Wedding Tips posts, I’m moving onto Manchester’s Top 3 Bridal Boutiques (in my opinion of course).
Visiting the bridal boutiques and trying on exquisite wedding dresses, was by far, the most enjoyable part of the Wedding Planning experience for me. You really do like an absolute star when you try on beautiful dresses. Going back to wearing normal clothes is totally boring and ordinary afterwards, absolute anti-climax! Believe me, you’ll want to wear dresses like that everyday and you’ll be counting the days till you can wear your chosen one for real. What a feeling.
Since I planned my London wedding from Manchester, the bridal boutiques I visited were up north – and I enjoyed every minute of it. Luckily my mum and chief bridesmaid could come up to join in the experience with me and we had a fun, girly few days (involving glasses of bubbly too of course). I’d highly recommend the experience to all brides-to-be as you don’t often get the chance to be completely self-indulgent and have the focus totally on you (even the most modest would enjoy this). It also gets you excited about your big day and you can truly start to visualise yourself walking down that aisle in your chosen dress.
Even if you think you might get your dress made, or buy it online, don’t deny yourself the experience of the bridal boutiques. There is nothing quite like standing in front of a full-length mirror in an array of stunning dresses. And it can only help as you’ll see yourself in a number of styles and you might just find that you like something you didn’t think you would! I had a certain style dress in mind when I went to my first boutique, but quickly realised the style did nothing for me when I tried a few on! I’m glad, as I was so close to ordering a dress of this style online…imagine how disappointed I would have been!
So for all you north-west brides-to-be out there, grab your mums or bridesmaids and get yourself to a few bridal boutiques. You’ll love every minute of it.
Here is my opinion of Manchester’s Top 3 Bridal Boutiques. There are plenty out there, but these I have been to and would personally recommend.
