HAPPY FRI-YAY BRIDES!
The weekend is so close and hopefully the weather stays beautiful so everyone can go out and enjoy themselves! This blog post is going to be a little different today because I am going to talk about working in bridal. I'm a Fashion Merchandising Major at Kent State and I've had the wonderful opportunity of interning for La Jeune Mariee this summer and I'm very sad to say, it's my last day here. As much as I've loved working in bridal, it's not all about the cupcakes, champagne and pretty dresses. Yes we absolutely love all those things but working in bridal is some tough work, more than people realize! A lot of people relate working in bridal to the 'Say Yes to the Dress' TV show and even though I do love a good episode of 'Say Yes to the Dress", that's far from what it's actually like. Yes, we do have a lot of bridal appointments and there are a lot of say yes to the dress moments but it's the things we have to do besides that. Every day there's always something to do. And when you're finished there's even more to do especially if there's a Trunk Show coming up! Now I personally like this, because I love staying busy and at the end of the day, you feel like you've accomplished something!
Even though bridal is some tough work, I absolutely love it. All the tough work is worth it, when you have those say yes to the dress moments. When you watch someone tear up because of putting on a dress, you know its "THE" dress and it makes it all worth while. I'm forever grateful that I had the opportunity to experience the bridal industry and for all the people here at La Jeune Mariee and everything they've done for me! I've loved my time here and I'm sad that it's gone by so fast!
