I haven’t sat down to write a blog post in forever – super sorry, I promise to up my game! Although my excuse is pretty legit, as I have been working my ass off creating my little pink AF empire. J/A Bridal is officially OPEN baby! It’s still so surreal seeing all my ideas come alive; the stress, tears, doubts, sleepless nights and ugly crying was totally worth it!
So a little about my studio, we are based right in the centre of Coleraine, easy parking, surrounded by coffee shops for the post-appointment breakdown with the tribe (v. important!) The vibe of the studio is unlike most other bridal shops & so far all of you beautiful brides are LOVIN’ it! It’s chilled, modern and pretty damn cool, if I do say so myself. If you don’t find your dress at J/A Bridal, it’s no biggy! My goal is to bring new modern luxe designers to Northern Ireland – giving you brides the chance to try on something a lil different! Although to the babes who have already found the one with us, welcome to the #JABrideTribe – it’s the coolest tribe to be in, I promise!
Our gorgeous gowns – where do I start! I am obsessed with each & every one, which I felt was super important! Lemme chat you through our designers to give you a little more insight…
OK. Lets begin with our girl Alyssa Kristin – she has really changed the game when it comes to clean, crisp & crepe! Totally on fleek with statement necklines, ahhh I just love everything about these dresses! We also have a few fitted sparkly looks & they are just Drop Dead Gorgeous! The quality and detail makes them look and feel super luxe, with an affordable price tag of under £3000! If that isn’t enough to make you book your styling session to try them on – wait until you try on the tulle WINGS! A twist on a more traditional veil :: let’s just say it’s incredible to watch my brides glow trying them on, true magic! J/A Bridal are also the only stockists in Northern Ireland which makes them even more special (if that’s even possible!)
What can I say? Dan is our MAN! He has totally nailed it with his bridal collection and I am so delighted to say that J/A Bridal is the first to bring Dan Jones from Australia into the UK. This is my claim to fame as he is just so damn cool! Each of our gowns are unique, yet total showstoppers! Bridal jump-suit with a mega chiffon overskirt you say? Oh and a fully crystal beaded veil? Yep, we’ve got you covered! Starting from £2500, affordable & stylish AF!
Next up, Lihi Hod Dreams Collection! On. Another. Level. They are beyond incredible! I am so glad I brought Lihi Hod to Ireland – currently exclusive to J/A Bridal! The detail and range of styles are just stunning and definitely make a statement. Priced at around the £4000 mark, they are honestly worth every penny! We also have a trunk show in the pipeline & we are SO excited!
Finally – Bo & Luca our pretty embellished girls. Think luxurious & bohemian! The craftsmanship that goes into these gowns is something else. I’m talking over 280 hours of hand embroidery, over 2000 beads/sequins on pieces! The majority of our dresses are priced around £2500. ELLIOTT & PARISENNE are a much higher price point due to their total amazingness! If you want a showstopper, then these are your dresses!
We also stock the mega talented & local Blue Meadow Bridal – they stock the dreamiest headpieces and statement veils and Bekah Anne for the jewels! So if you’ve already found your gown – you can of course still arrange an accessories styling session to finish your look!
So yeah, that’s J/A Bridal in a nutshell! I cannot wait to meet more of you beautiful brides. To arrange your styling session, simply fill out our contact form and I’ll get the bubbles chilling!
See you soon babe!
