To celebrate the launch of our brand new flagship store, we’re taking a look back at our beautiful Bijoux Brides who bought their gown from our Cadzow Street store over the years.
Lyndsay and Blair share their love story with us below…
Bijoux Bridal: Where did you and Blair meet?
Lyndsay: We met almost 7 years ago now when we were working together in the same pub. He was too scared to ask me on a date so took me to McDonald’s instead!!!
We continued to work in the pub part-time and also at our full-time jobs for two years before buying our first house together. We were so happy to have our weekends back and our new home.
BB: Tell us about the engagement Lyndsay! How did it happen?
L: Blair asked me to marry him on a trip to Inverary; he took me to the castle grounds and got down on one knee (a total surprise) and from there we started to plan our wedding.
BB: So when it came to picking your dream dress, what was your experience and how did you decide on “the one”?
L: I fell in love with my dress as soon as I saw it. I found the service in the store to be first class. I was nervous on my first visit as I had been to one other store where I was left to pick and try on dresses. It left me feeling a bit lost.
On arrival at the store, I was welcomed by the girls and asked to pick what dresses I liked by placing a peg on each dress. I was then helped into the dresses. The stylist was fantastic, she gave honest feedback and made me feel at ease.
I didn’t find “the one” from the dresses I had picked out but the stylist knew what I was keen on and said she had the perfect dress – and she did! I ordered my dress there and then.
BB: So you had the perfect engagement, you’ve found your dream dress… but what about your wedding?!
L: Our wedding day was amazing, it was the hottest day of the year – 6th May 2017. We could not have asked for a better day. We got married at Holy Trinity and All Saints Church and followed with our reception at Dalziel Park Hotel.
BB: If you were to recommend Bijoux Bridal to a friend, what would you say?
L: My experience was very personal. I was made to feel special and the girls were passionate about all things wedding – especially finding me my perfect dress!
Wedding Venue: Dalziel Park Hotel, Motherwell
