At this time of year as we say farewell to another year, it’s a great opportunity to reflect on the last twelve months as well as plan for the exciting times that lie ahead particularly for those planning a wedding over the next couple of years!

In a year that saw us celebrating our 5th birthday (how quickly has that gone!) we were delighted to be awarded the 5* Customer Service Award for the whole of the Midlands region by Guides for Brides, one the largest online wedding directories. Providing a high level of service for our brides has been our key aim since we opened in 2010 so we were ecstatic to win particularly as the award is based on the feedback received from our customers. It’s wonderful that we’ve also been nominated again this year so finger’s crossed!


Also, last year, we saw over 150 Pink Confetti Brides walk down the aisle on their big day! Although when the day arrives it’s a mix of emotions – happy that the day has arrived but sad that our journey with our bride is over!  For those that have visited us you will know that we offer an extensive range of shoes and accessories so we don’t actually know the exact number of brides wearing a little bit of Pink Confetti! But we never forget what a privilege is it to be a part, however, big or small of such a wonderful occasion.

Throughout the year we got to meet so many lovely brides, their friends and families, not to mention a few groom’s or two!, at the many wedding fairs we attended. We’re off to a flying start in 2016 with six wedding fairs in the first two months – with more to follow in the spring! We love being out meeting brides-to-be face to face and having the opportunity to chat about their plans and dreams.
