Inside the Bijoux shop…

About Bijoux Bridal Your Luxury Bridal Experience

So where did it all begin for Bijoux Bridal? Owner Laura had a dream of owning a bridal store back in 2008. She was working as a waitress in a cocktail bar… just kidding, she was working full time as midwife and just could not shake the bad bridal experience she had when she was getting married. She decided it was time to hang up her forceps (well almost, to begin with she juggled both like the superwoman she is) and make the plunge into bridal, opening a gorgeous boutique on Cadzow Street in Hamilton in 2009. Meanwhile in a town not too far away (sunny Newhouse, ML1 to be exact!) Lynsay was planning to open her very own bridal shop, knowing nothing about gowns or how to sell them, she just knew that her own wedding dress shopping experience wasn’t as fun as it should have been, and she wanted to make a difference for the other brides out there. In 2011 The Wedding Store was created and in 2014, the pair happened to bump into each other at a bridal event and shared their stories, the highs, the lows and the in between! They decided there and then that instead of being competitors they would join forces by recommending each other’s bridal stores whenever they could and help each other out.

So, the ultimate double act was born

…(think Ant & Dec, although I will leave it up to you to decide who Ant is….) and it was time to take the next steps forward. By the time we reached 2016, we created the brand new Bijoux Plus store, right next door to Bijoux in Cadzow St. This gave our brides a lot more breathing space and meant that we could expand our size range within our samples to accommodate for our brides more realistically. In 2017, Lynsay made the decision to re-brand The Wedding Store and bring it under the umbrella of Bijoux. It was the perfect store to accommodate our Bijoux Outlet plans and by December 2017 we had launched an amazing new discount bridal store which saves our brides up to 70% off designer dresses as well as giving them the opportunity to take their wedding dresses home that day. This brings us to our brand new store in Hamilton. In 2018, we excitedly opened a stunning new 2,000 sq ft store just along from the original Bijoux Bridal boutique. The store now sits pride of place on 48 Castle Street and as of September, we now have our outlet department on the 2nd floor. Our store is now one of the biggest in central Scotland with double size fitting rooms, a private room, wheel chair access and over 200 dresses in each department for our brides to choose from. It’s really something special. We can’t wait to share the next part of our journey with your beautiful brides! All our love Laura, Lynsay & Team Bijoux xx
