As children, girls often dream about their wedding day. They dream that they will look like a princess and that people will travel from far and wide to see them looking radiant. They draw themselves in wedding dresses, with lots of jewellery and special shoes and often liken themselves to their favourite disney princesses.
Being a child and having those wonderful dreams about what you will look like on your wedding day is magical, but what happens after the ring goes on and you get to make those dreams come true?
Mel at Joan Vintage Bridal makes dresses that will live up to those beautiful, child like dreams you had. Her designs are beautiful, classy and have a vintage twist. If you are looking for a dress that is made to fit your exact taste, shape and vision, Mel should be your first port of call. Her expertise and friendly nature will make your whole experience a dream. Not only does she make her own dresses, but she also designs bespoke jewellery, head pieces and shoes to match.
Mel bases her wedding dress and accessory designs on classic vintage styling and dresses that would have been seen in years gone by. Her business even carries her grandmothers name. Mel is based in Getliffe’s Yard, Leek, which is a quaint, Victorian arcade, full of like minded shop owners.
Here are some of the things that Mel’s brides have said about her…
‘Aww, I can’t thank you enough for making my dress and headpiece. I felt amazing and my husband and guests absolutely loved it. I even wore my head piece the day after! Wedding dress shopping wasn’t easy until I met you and your gem of a shop and thats when I couldn’t wait to get married. Everybody said that it was such a Jen dress. I loved that.’
‘I just wanted to drop you a note to say a huge thank you for making my beautiful wedding dress and accessories. They were just perfect and have received so many wonderful compliments. I loved every minute of visiting your little boutique in Leek filled with vintage treasures. You made the whole experience very special. Your advice and expertise, invaluable.’
