I recently had the pleasure to be interviewed by Simply Bridal and it would be rude not to return the favour; so I put some incredibly difficult questions to them and they delivered their answers with the grace and elegance for which their brand is has become known:
How did you start your business and what is the company’s ethos?
Simply Bridal initially sparked from the belief that every bride deserves a high quality wedding dress that is affordable and accessible. Now, the company has grown into a global platform of couture dresses that brides no longer need to cringe at the glance of the price tags.
Who would you most like to ‘dress’ for their ‘big day’?
We would like to dress every woman who wants to look beautiful on her big day for a reasonable price because that is exactly what the brand stands for. We hope that through our wide range of dresses, every woman will be able to find the wedding gown that best represents who they are as an individual. If there’s one lady we would love to see out on our dresses, it would have to be Zooey Deschanel. We love her work, but more importantly we appreciate her sincerity, energy and down-to-earth girl-next-door zest she puts in her art. We have no doubt she will look amazing in our dresses!
Top Tips for looking amazing on your Wedding Day
What three tips would you give to brides buying their dress to ensure that they look stunning on their day (and in their photographs!)
What is the best seller from your site and why do you think it sells so well?
One of our best sellers would be the Monique Gown (http://www.simplybridal.com/shop/monique-gown). This corseted gown has succinct, clean lines that embody a woman who is minimalist. The gown is ornamented with laced detailing and bedazzlements all around the corset while the puffy skirt adds more youthfulness and playfulness to the dress, making this dress the perfect marriage between hard and soft. And who wouldn’t want a perfect marriage?
Do you have a personal favourite from the beautiful products that you sell and can you tell us a little bit about it?
The Bianca Gown is definitely one of the many ‘stand out’ pieces on our website because it is modern, feminine, and sophisticated. We love how it is flattering to a woman’s figure in all the right places, and is a dress that looks gorgeous on all women. The grey sash adds a pop of colour to the gown while highlighting the essence of a modern woman who is classy and chic at the same time, and who wouldn’t want that? The cinched waistline also gives the bride an hour-glass illusion, creating the romantic image of a woman who has fallen madly in love with the man of her dreams. This dress is perfect for church or garden weddings; it is extremely versatile and we just adore the fact that it can be styled to express a variety of different attitudes that the bride envisions.
