While planning a wedding is a super-exciting and enjoyable task, it can also be rather time-consuming and daunting, so we’re always keen to hear of suppliers that can ease the pressure on busy brides-to-be. And in today’s post we have news of not one, but two, such businesses – David’s Bridal and Bridebook.

As the world’s largest bridal retailer, David’s Bridal has been helping brides to find their dream wedding dress for more than 60 years and has four stores across the UK, which act as one-stop wedding shops.

In addition to numerous stunning dresses from the David’s Bridal collections, the stores stock gowns by White by Vera Wang, Wonder by Jenny Packham, and Truly Zac Posen, ranging from sizes 4 to 34, giving brides of all shapes and sizes exceptional choice.

Furthermore, there’s lingerie, shoes, hair accessories, jewellery, and bridal party attire too, meaning there’s no need for brides to visit numerous boutiques to check off items on their ‘wedding shopping list’.

To celebrate the opening of its newest store, located in Birmingham, David’s Bridal has teamed up with Bridebook, a free online wedding planner, to co-host a £1,000 David’s Bridal dress giveaway.

Surely, that would be the icing on the Christmas cake this festive season?!

Spanning an incredible 15,000 square feet of everything wedding, from bridal dresses and head-to-toe accessories to stunning mother-of-the-bride and bridesmaid attire, the new store is almost too good to be true. The free-flowing layout and clean displays make it easy for ladies to see everything on offer, and with a remarkable 38 spacious changing rooms and exceptional customer service on-hand, there’s a sky-high chance of brides finding ‘The One’ during their visit.

.

WIN Your WEDDING DRESS & ACCESSORIES Worth Up To £1,500 With Brides Up North & The Harrogate Wedding Lounge!

Make sure your name is down!  Now that would be something to be thankful for!

.

Meanwhile, this afternoon on the wedding blog, bride to be Laura C shares the ten little things making her happy in the run up to the festive season.

.

.

Laura C says: I love reading every ‘Count your Blessings’ post you publish. Every Sunday, I try and think back over my week, and make a list of things that have made me happy. Often, these are small little things that happen weekly anyway, but I have never truly taken stock over what is a blessing to me on the whole, so here it goes…

.

1  Until next Easter, I get to wake up next to my gorgeous fiancé every morning. He has to go away to work for a year, but until then I am unbelievably grateful to have him next to me

.

2  My family’s health

.

3  Working from home. As the days are shorter and colder, I like nothing more to snuggle in big cosy jumpers of an afternoon working away, knowing I don’t have to leave the house

.

4  The team spirit and support I get from my rowing squad. They are great friends and push me to improve every single day

.

5  Being creative and knitting away in front of the telly on a Saturday night

.

6  Receiving the official letter telling me that I achieved a 1:1 with a distinction, and was top of the year, in my recently completed MA

.

7  A girl’s nights, in or out!

.

8  Getting dressed up for black tie events, and seeing everyone in their finest

.

9  Being asked to trial for the GB selection squad

.

10 When my fiancé texts me at lunch time from work to say thank you for making his sandwiches

.

i could go on forever, but I will stop at 10!  Best wishes, Laura C x

.

.

See previous Count Your Blessings lists here.

.

Get involved.  Whether you are a bride to be, newly wed, wedding enthusiast or wedding industry professional:  please email me at julia@bridesupnorth.co.uk with your own happy list, and I will try to feature as many as I can here on the wedding blog.  Your list can be everything or absolutely nothing to do with weddings – you decide. From the frivolous to the fundamental, it’s your blessings that you are counting, and the contents are down to you. Spread a little happiness!
