This month, we’re delving into our ever-growing community of #GuestList suppliers and uncovering the people behind the purpose.
Each week, we will be sharing in-depth personal interviews with the owners and managers at the helm of our amazing #GuestList businesses, starting with the boutiques.
With reopening just around the corner, we want to shed a light on the ladies that will be welcoming you brides back through their doors, and discovering just why you should commence your dress hunt with them.
First up is Miss He Bridal in Wigan, a bespoke couturier with an eye for detail and hand-crafted, utterly unique gowns. We spoke to owner and head dress-maker Hebe to find out what makes her tick.
Tell us how your love of bridal started and your journey to opening your boutique…
It all started when I was on the hunt for my own wedding dress, I followed my husband’s idea and created my own wedding gown after I wasn’t 100% pleased with the dresses I had tried on. I loved the feeling this gave me – the fact I had designed something completely bespoke – so I wanted to offer other brides that feeling.
Three words to describe your bridal collections…
Romantic, whimsical, timeless.
Brides love your boutique because…
We do not just sell wedding gowns, we make memories. We encourage all our brides to get involved in the designing process.
We love creating bespoke, handmade wedding dresses for our beautiful brides, bringing their dream dresses to life and making their day extra special.
Tell us about your collections?
We launch our collection once per year, some of our classic designs are evergreen. They’re aimed at the brides who are looking for a timeless-style gown but which has never been seen before.
What’s new for 2021?
Our new 2021 collection is super fun, romantic and so pretty, from the colours, the fabrics we have chosen.
We kept the classy elements like appliqués, French lace, Italian Crepe, then added 3D flowers, as well as vintage inspired pearl tulle, also the unconventional fabrics, like embroidery tulle, sparkle organza.
Tell us a little about the service a bride receives from you?
Our boutique is by appointment only. It starts with initial consultation, which will allow us to know the details of your big day, where and when.
Then you will try on the dresses. For bespoke brides, we will discuss the details of the design and fabric options.
Each of our Miss He Brides receive a sketch of their own wedding dress too!
Now, this can be done virtually and we offer to send fabric swatches so they can see and feel the fabrics and trims without leaving their home.
What inspires you every day?
I’m inspired from the nature that surrounds me in my daily life.
