Adding some extra decorative details to your bridalwear shop can make all the difference - if brides like your surroundings and enjoy what you have to offer, they will spend more time in your store. If you have elegant and stylish decor they will trust your taste and judgment, making it easier for you to recommend dresses and finishing touches such as jewellery and a veil.

If the bride loves the experience she has in your shop, she’s also more likely to recommend it to her friends when they get engaged too - spending a little on a few decorative details can really pay off!

 

Metallic Decanter

Serve up chilled water in style with this gorgeous metallic decanter from Oliver Bonas (£15). For an even more elegant touch, add slices of lemon or strips of cucumber to the water before serving it.

Leave it on your coffee table alongside some elegant glasses to encourage brides and their guests to help themselves, or for a dramatic touch wheel it out on a retro inspired bar cart - it adds to the glamour! Of course, everyone loves a glass of something sparkling but it’s important to have fresh water on offer too.
