Dragonfly Contemporary designs – New Bridal Boutique Launch Party

Evening all,

’tis the night before Christmas…. well not quite… but I am feeling very festive now that my decorations are up and the tree is all sparkly, and my last event of 2012 has finally happened. Last Thursday evening I had the absolute pleasure of helping Suzi with the official launch of her bridal boutique, Dragonfly Contemporary Designs. Previously located just down the road near the fabulous wedding venue and restaurant The Daffodil and following a short stay in Montpellier, Dragonfly has returned to The Suffolks in a brand new location boasting white floors, Farrow & Ball grey and HUGE mirrors to show off the range of designer bridal gowns from Suzanne Neville, Sassi Holford, Lyn Ashworth, Claire Mischevani and Stewart Parvin. Swoon.

I was enlisted to help in the organisation of this event, co-ordinating suppliers, filling goodie bags and getting the word out about this beautiful place – it came hot on the heels of also helping to co-ordinate the recent Johanna Hehir showcase in the Cotswolds, so  I’ve been lucky enough to have an amazing preview of some gorgeous 2013 collection dresses.

We had the beautiful Kimberlee Collicutt there to model one of the gorgeous dresses, with Lucy Pearce from BooLou Beauty doing the make up and the rather dashing Paco Delgado creating the gorgeous up do . Paco has also recently launched a new salon in The Suffolks, which is absolutely stunning both inside and out.

Goodie bags were filled with macaroons from the supremely talented Contemporary Cake Designs, cookies from The Great Norwood Street Deli, letterpress Christmas cards from new cool kid on the block Cherry Press, hair treatment samples from Paco Delgado, super cute screen printed pin badges from Megan Alice England (she is just launching wedding favours and stationery), a plantable gift from moi, and discounts at local cafe’s and shops. Each bag was finished with a pop of colour by way of a buttonhole from Bloomers (nice new branding Bev!).

Bev from Bloomers also created a gorgeous floral display, and Xavier from Contemporary Cake Designs displayed one of his gorgeous cakes from his new collection… super duper mega pretty.

The place was absolutely full of wedding industry folk, local business owners and real brides – it was so lovely to see the support for Suzi and her team, and of course not only did I get to catch up with some friendly faces but I also got to talk “wedding” with those ladies getting hitched next year. Loved the turnout of their bridesmaids too, good work !

Don’t tell anyone but she’s running a special offer of 10% off all wedding dresses if you book an appointment in December 2012 and there are some fabulous sample sale dresses to get your hands on too. Top secret mind.
