Mooshki Designer Weekend

For the brides out there who feel that Wedding Dress shopping can be a bit of a minefield Designer Weekends can be a really good place to start.
So what happens at these events? Well a designer weekend is basically your chance to see a designers full collection in one place. The collection can comprise of any thing up to 50 dresses on top of what we already have in stock so it is a great opportunity to try on lots of different shapes and styles.

Sometimes we are also lucky enough to have the designers themselves come to visit the shop. They really add to your experience as they know which body shapes they designed each dress for and will be able to advise you on your shape. They also have a natural flare for styling and can add just the right accessories to complete your look.

 Our next Designer Weekend is on the 10th & 11th May and we are so excited that the designer for House of Mooshki will be coming to join us. Olivia will be on hand on Saturday 10th May from 9.30am - 5.30pm to inspire and stun you with her truly beautiful collection.

Appointments are booking up fast so call today to avoid disappointment.

Brides from near and afar!

What a week it has been! Since getting back from our very exciting buying trip last weekend we really haven't stopped!

                                         We had a truly fantastic time buying some stunning new dresses for the shop. It was great to see how the new collections from Justin Alexander and Ellis have moved on. We also bought a new label called Sonsie which we are thrilled about and can't wait for it to arrive in the summer. 
It is lovely when we hear how far brides have travelled to come to our shop and this week we have met lots of new brides, some from St Ives, some from Scotland! All equally delighted to find their dream dress!  
This coming Sunday, 13th April, we will be at the Corn Exchange in St Ives for their Wedding show. This is a brilliant opportunity to meet lots of local suppliers, get some great ideas and see our dresses on the cat walk.

Breakfast Meetings and Cocktail Bars!

This week we are sampling both ends of the glamour spectrum!

 This morning we were up very early to attend the launch of the Hunts Post Business Awards 2014. We were treated to tea and bacon sandwiches whilst we listen to some great advice from both the organisers and previous winners about the entry process.
Come Saturday we go to the other end of the glamour spectrum as we head to the capital city for our spring buying trip. This is a great opportunity for us to catch up with our suppliers, discover new labels and get a feel for the new styles coming through. If that wasn't enough we are attending a fabulous dinner and an exciting cocktail party!
