It's cold wrap up

As the winter days get colder some ideas for how to wrap up and look good.

Wrap up, look and feel good this winter.

Making the decison

Everytime I chat to a bride I realise the number of decisions there have to be made before the BiG day.
The date, the venue, the number of guests, the menu,the entertainment, but of course to me and I think for my brides the dress is one of the BiG decisions. Anything I can do to help the bride make her decision I will try. It is not always obvious.

 To start what shape suits best.
 A fuller style skirt or a more fitted figure hugging style.

Should there be a veil, what way should your hair be.

Do you need something to cover you up or to keep you warm?
Or something different?

And something personal.

And if we haven't got what you are looking for I can just make it for you.
Once you are happy I know I have done my job correctly.

It is just lovely when someone takes the time to say "Thank you".

Hi Joanne

I just wanted to drop you an email to tell you how great you are as a designer and dressmaker!!  I was so delighted when I first came to see you as you were the first person to actually listen to what I wanted for my wedding dress and I had a short time frame which was never a problem for you.  I had an idea in my head and you made that possible, and my happiness with my dress was the priority throughout!    

You know what it means for a bride to feel good in what she wears on her wedding day... that is very clear.   Never once did you make me feel that my ideas were not possible.  THANK YOU!    You take all the fuss out of it!  Never once was I stressed about it after I came to see you!   I certainly will spread the word about you because you are fantastic!!!   

I've attached a few photos that I thought you might like to see!  :o)



Thank you Sharon for the photos of your "Big Day" and your kind comments.

The perfect gift

It is that time of year when we think about giving our loved ones a gift.
If you are finding it hard of something to think of and you know someone is having a wedding in the Year 2013, what about  a gift voucher!
            With a gift voucher your loved one can spend it on something they know they want.

So if you are looking for a unique Christmas gift for the bride-to-be? Why not give her a Joanne Ferguson Bridal gift voucher, redeemable against anything in store? With the gift vouchers available at whatever value you like, she can make sure she’s got her something blue with a garter, treat herself to some sparkly jewels or even pay off some of her bridal gown. After all when you’re organising your wedding, every penny counts!
So pop in store today!

Quick catch up

Thought I would quickly show you some of my photos of the fashion show we did.

This outfit did it again, it seemed to steel the show!

My Mother of the bride outfits stood out for their brightness of colour 
I did my best to show off my accessories to match and the models did brilliantly coping with the stairs.

I do hope the choice of dresses I took showed people that I know what is on trend but I like to dare to be different too.

It is difficult to take good photos 
Hopefully the professional photographer will have some better photos for you to see.
Thanks to Nick who modelled our menswear too.
