Hi Everyone, this is our first ever blog and wanted to do a quick who we are. So Something Special was created by Margaret our lovely Mum. She first opened the doors in 1990 quickly establishing herself in the bridal industry for her amazing craft to create and sow making Wedding dresses, bridesmaids & flower girls even some Mother of the bride. With a life dedicated to her craft she has been a part of so many weddings and now the ladies that got married are having christening and proms.
So now its Me ( Vikki ) and my sister Paula and our beautiful Maria, and of course the founding member Margaret. It really is a family business and we love what we do. From having each of our ideas of dresses and accessories to all bringing something different to help all our customers. Going to all the Bridal shows to pick all the brand-new styles for our lovely girls is really exciting, getting to see all the new trends and designs. Asking our girls on stories what they think as we are looking. The catwalks are simply the best! (anyone remember the balloons holding up the veil?) We try to meet new brides through BIG wedding fairs and this is a time we get to meet some amazing suppliers in the industry at these and on styled shoots having an idea and creating our own mini wedding and the pictures always turn out AMAZING! We love the first time meeting a bride, bridesmaid, Mother Prom girl & little flower girls you become part of the family, our favorite part is seeing the beautiful pictures after the event showing all the details come together with the hours of picking, matching and sometimes (stressful) little details all for that one perfect day! We always try to pass on our calmness that everything will and always does work out and be fine, we will always be here for that possible last minute stress weight loss or gain alteration or that facetime to a bridesmaid in Dubai that we need to get some measurements from, to the last minute bride who doesn’t have a dress and we get her to pick one from our shop, make it perfectly fit and back to her wedding after 2 paracetamol a makeup top up (only 1 hour late) Nothing is really too much – to help all of girls have that perfect day!
