In March Oxfam Batley’s Sustainable Fashion Events Specialist, Deborah Anderson, shared a series of bridal blogs with us in the lead up to Oxfam Batley’s first ever bridal pop-up shop. Now she’s back giving us her summary of how the event went. You can also read her Vintage Bridal Picks, Behind The Scenes Summary and Tips For Picking The Perfect Dress on our blog or shop bridal online or in your local Oxfam Bridal specialist.
On Saturday 25th March we hosted our first ever Brida
l Pop-Up shop at our Batley online hub which was a huge success for us. We raised over £1300 for Oxfam, which is an incredible amount for us, with the majority of brides who visited buying a wedding gown on the day.
We had over 100 dresses, veils, accessories and homewares on display with as much variety as we could possibly get. Most brides attended and were willing to try any style from vintage dresses to our Vera Wang gown; the surprising success being our alternative collection featuring two-pieces and colourful gowns. Normally we sell dresses through our online website but it was lovely to get a glimpse to the final bridal look! It was a brilliant family day out for some with children helping to pick their favourite dresses and try on the shoes and friends and mothers looking for a hat for
the big day.
Deborah and Sally created personalised goody bags, including the gorgeous Divine Himalayan Salt Chocolate, for all the brides who attended. We also had cupcakes and refreshments available for all our wonderful visitors.
Many of our dresses are available on the Oxfam Online Shop, however, if you’d like to try before you buy you can stop by your local Oxfam Bridal specialist shop or come to one of Oxfam Batley’s Oxstyle events where you can come in and try on our dresses as well as making a bridal appointment to gain advice on what suits you best.
Thank you to all the wonderful brides who came and we hope you have a fabulous wedding day, please tag your bridal photos on social media with #foundinoxfam so we can see those enviable bridal pictures.
