Happy New Year! – 31/12/2016
Hello from your local bridal boutique! We would like to wish all of our customers, suppliers, our local business community, friends and families a Happy New Year. 2016 has been a big one for us – opening your newest local bridal boutique which this time last year, was only a dream. We have had tremendous support from all of those around us, and we couldn’t have done it without you all. Thank you.
We are incredibly excited about 2017 and the brides booked in to find their dream dress with us. We are also looking forward to choosing gowns from our designer’s new collections and have some great new partnerships with local businesses we are looking forward to announcing. Oh and there is that small matter of our wedding 🙂
Enjoy celebrating everyone – see you in 2017 xx

We heart Serendipitea – 02/12/2016
Unless you’re our first appointment of the day, it’s likely I will be with another bride before your appointment. If you’re super keen and get here early, why not take a short walk to Serendipitea (117 Washway Road, M33 7TY) – http://www.serendipiteaandcoffee.com for a tea or coffee and perhaps a cake before your appointment.
Their opening hours are:
Monday – Friday: 08:00 – 16:00
Saturday: 08:30 – 15:30
Sunday: 09:00 – 14:00
So dependent on the time of your appointment, you could even go there for a post wedding dress try on de-brief!
Come and join us at our launch event! – 26/11/16
Now that we have our doors open, we want to invite you to a launch event to celebrate on Saturday 26 November from 10am. There will be a festive theme as Sale is switching on their Christmas lights that day. Event details can be found here.
Join us for nibbles, drinks and to have a look at our beautiful gowns by So Sassi, MiaMia and Catherine Parry. We also have some lovely veils from The Couture Veil, as well as must have accessories such as belts and hoops.
The event is free, however, so that we can make sure all of our guests are given the attention they deserve (and we can arrange catering!), we ask that you please register by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling on 0161 637 6830 letting us know how many people will be in your party. We will then work with you to assign an appropriate timeslot.
We are so excited to share our collections with you, as well as spread some early Christmas cheer!
Feeling festive at Honeyblossom Bridal – 06/11/16
We’ve been getting into the festive spirit at the boutique as Manchester switched their Christmas lights on this weekend – our Christmas tree is up and we have snowflakes in the window!
Our tree is currently joined by the beautiful Nadine by So Sassi. For a bride looking for a modern twist on lace with a statement back, she’s definitely the one for you!
Honeyblossom Bridal is open! – 05/11/16
After all the planning and hard work our local bridal boutique is finally open! We’ve been working really hard transforming the unit to create an open, bright space for our brides to enjoy during their appointments. Our style is minimalistic, allowing our gowns to do all the talking.
Here’s our top three favourite things about our boutique:
The racking is completely bespoke and was put up to make the most of the space in the boutique. It’s made from scaffolding poles, which may sound odd, but you would be amazed the number of uses it has outside of its traditional one! Since putting it up in the boutique, we’ve spotted the poles being used for handrails, in restaurants and bars, as well as other retail establishments. The scaffolding poles were also used to create our spacious changing room.
We just love with contrast between the galvanised industrial scaffolding and our glamorous bridal gowns.
Our seating are luxurious velvet folding theatre seats. Viewing your friend/daughter/granddaughter/niece/sister in their bridal gown is a very special, and our chairs definitely bring a sense of occasion.
Don’t worry if your party is more than three people – we have back up chairs (which are slightly less glamorous!)
Our two side mirrors can each rotate through 90 degrees. This means you get to see all of the lovely detail in our gowns. After all, a bride must look fabulous from all angles on her big day!
Happy Halloween from Honeyblossom Bridal – 31/10/16
Dave and I took a break from the renovations and preparation to play with face paints for Halloween – have a good one everybody!
