supplier spotlight #13: maids to measure
Today I’m super excited to share a lovely new supplier who I just know is going to be the solution to one of your on going planning problems. Finding the perfect bridesmaid dress, the right colour, shape and style to flatter all of your ‘maids is something I can completely sympathise with. We are lucky here in the UK to be blessed with a pretty good selection of high street stores, but often we’re after something a little different that will make our favourite ladies feel special too, without spending a fortune on designer dresses or shipping something from the US.
Maids to Measure are a fantastic new brand who may just be the answer to all your problems! Maids to Measure was born after India (who has worked for superstar designer Vera Wang) and Sinclair (who has been a bridesmaid three times) realised it was really difficult to find bridesmaids dresses that fit all shapes and sizes, at reasonable price. Providing a much needed personal service for bridesmaids, their fully bespoke dresses are made to each bridesmaids exact requirements, a stress free way to dress your bridesmaids, whether opting for matching or mismatched dresses.
“I think its most important the bridesmaids love their dresses, otherwise it shows in the photos!” Sinclair Sellers
I met the lovely sisters behind Maids to Measure, Sinclair and India Sellers, at The Luxury Wedding Show (see my post here) and was greated with passion & enthusiasm and geniune love for their products. This passion and service is carried into their studio, where you can visit with your bridesmaids and design their dresses over a glass of bubbly. Now that’s what I call service! You can pick from one of their growing range of pre-designed dresses which you can adjust and change to suit your requirements, or start completely from scratch. With a choice of colours from a range of beautiful, high quality fabrics, each dress is priced at £195 regardless of style, great value for something your ‘maids will love and can wear time and time again.
“I keep being asked about floral prints so maybe that’s something to look out for in 2012 – its also becoming more and more popular to have the girls in different style dresses but with the same fabric and colour” Sinclair Sellers
