Shall we just get hitched our way?


Dear Bride,

Do you dread the idea of spending the next 2 years of your life planning your wedding?  Do you think that now all these glossy bridal mags have been thrust in your general direction, you have been sucked into the super pretty, pastel bunting, naked spongecake world of weddings and it's just not you? Are you repulsed when someone says "Oh my God, you should totally have a pinterest board". Do you just want to get married, have a wicked time doing it and not have to rob a bank to make your wedding a reality? Well you can! Many of the Bridal shops you speak to will say they require a minimum of 8 months for you to order your gown, and yes, while that may be true of some designers, there are other options out there if you don't want to wait that long.

Off the peg isn't a bad thing! Don't forget the sale rail too!  There are fantastic dresses to be bought straight from the store here at Boulevard - as well as having the option to forward order too.

Designers like Allure will bend over backwards to get your gown in time for your wedding, if you're working on a tight schedule.  Just ask us!  The Boulevard boss and her husband decided to get married and did it all in less than 12 weeks and she didn't break a sweat. That's not because she owns a bridal shop either......it's because she has a built in anti-meltdown feature. Don't freak out.  

Venues generally always have a "late deals" section on their website, and you can always put yourself down for a cancellation too.  You can save a few pennies that way!

Getting married is brilliant.  Don't let other people pressure you into having a wedding that you don't want to have.  Don't want to throw a bouquet?   Don't want to have Bridesmaids? Don't want to have a first dance? As long as you both turn up, you've nailed it.

Is your Anti-Meltdown Feature on the fritz?  Do you feel yourself being consumed by Wedmin? Are you clutching a box of cupcakes and a bottle of Morgan's Spiced Rum?  Call the Freak Out Prevention Team on 01787 222235 and we will help you on your merry way to the land of the Happy Happy Bride.

Love from

The Boulevard Team
