Claire Pettibone Designer Weekend
We are very excited to have over 35 of the Claire Pettibone 2012 and 2013 collection in the boutique over the weekend! Opening the boxes and taking out each of the dresses, I was a little bit in awe of how beautifully designed and created the wedding dresses are. If you are looking for a vintage wedding dress, I am certain you will be able to find something beautiful in Ivory & Pearl this weekend!
I am so excited to open Ivory & Pearl, after months of researching gowns, accessories, websites, furniture, rails, mannequins, hangers.. yes hangers (it’s amazing what you spend your Saturday nights researching!!) we are finally opening! And I hope our research has paid off, as we have a beautiful boutique, with a range of wedding gowns that are new to Northern Ireland, some are even new to Ireland and we have one amazing designer new to the UK. My appointment book is already nearly full for the first week of opening, which is amazing… thank-you! I couldn’t have opened Ivory & Pearl, without a few very special people though and so I would just like to thank them quickly!
Firstly, Philip, thank-you for your advice, help, time and support over the last six months, and for telling me I can do it! As Director of 2 companies, you will be glad to hear that if it all falls apart (which it won’t) you will still have a great career ahead of you as a PA!
Charlie (my mother-in-law), after working long hours, I would come home and Charlie would have dinner sitting waiting for me on my front door step! Thank-you for being so considerate and doing so much for Chris & I!
Mark and Anna (brother and sister), life would definitely not be as fun without you both! Mark, thank-you for helping me move all the items in and out of the boutique, and Anna for assisting all the brides-to-be at the bridal fairs. I can’t wait for you to come into the boutique to answer the phone for Ivory & Pearl.
I would also like to thank, Slater Design for designing the ‘Ivory&Pearl’ logo, they really captured what I wanted my bridal boutique to be, and I love all the marketing literature. Home Creations, for making 2 bare rooms into a fully functional Bridal Boutique, I couldn’t recommend them more! Carol, for helping me with all fabric choices, after standing in the Cotton Print nearly in tears with all the fabric samples, your direction has been fantastic! And Sara, for helping me at all the bridal fairs, I know if I ever go on holiday, Ivory & Pearl will be in good hands!
