my wedding. She was so friendly, patient and professional and

lasted so well right till the end of the evening. I would
wholeheartedly recommend her. Thank you, Beth!“

aisie Darling began as an idea in
2013 - the dream has been evolving
since then and is now coming alive!!
Charlotte has always been a romantic
and loves 'love' - she even has a heart
wall in her home! Charlotte also loves
dresses, shoes and handbags - Maisie
Darling is the perfect combination! As
Charlotte could not continue to buy
wedding dresses for herself, she decided
that the next best thing was to help
others find their 'meant to be' dress (as
well as talking love stories, drinking coffee
and eating cake!).

ant to be' dress
Charlotte spent the first 15 years of her
working life teaching Dance. After being
surround by creatives, theatre, costumes
and make up, she decided to take a side
step and throw love in as well! She is a
creative soul and loves putting different
dresses and accessories together to
result in a unique and personal look.

Charlotte creates a personal. friendly and trust worthy

deserves a wedding dress that mirrors them in both
style and personality - in essence, their signature gown.

House provide Brides with styles and/or designs that
offer something slightly different. Maisie Darling is
thoroughly British for Modern women.

'CHARLOTTE'S TOP TIPS
for your wedding dress appointment:
Try On Different Silhouettes
Different silhouettes highlight different parts of
the body. Try a variety of different ones to find
the perfect type for you and you might find that
it may not be the one that you thought it would
be :-) I recently had a bride who came to Maisie
Darling adamant that she wanted a ballgown,
she had dreamt of it all her life! So she was
mortified when she tried one on and it did not
suit her figure. She had a very petite frame and
the dress was too elaborate. After a few tears,
I convinced her to try a sheath dress. It was
perfect. the unbroken contours and less fabric
lengthened her figure - it was her perfect
9 Consider Who You Take
Dress shopping is a very exciting and
momentous experience. But it can be very
confusing if you have too many people with you.
They may all have their own ideas and opinions
on what is best for YOU. With the 'new normal',
most boutiques are allowing the bride, plus one
guest at the appointment. They may also have
the technology to allow others to join the
appointment online. Ideally, 2-3 guests is a
perfect amount and picking people that will
consider you and your style will make for a
happy and stress-free appointment.
E) Try Shoes On With Each Dress
Now these don't have to be the shoes you are
going to wear on your wedding day, but putting a
pair of shoes on will help you to see how the dress
will hang as you are walking around the boutique
(or swooshing!) If you have decided to wear heels
on the day, then once you have these on, it will
lengthen and alter the way you hold your body.
Even with flats on you will stand and hold yourself
0 Think About Your Undies!
No matter what style of dress you think you may be
trying on, consider what undies you wear to your
appointment. First of all, it will help with your confidence.
If you have a pair of knickers on that have a big hole in
the back, you won't feel very glamourous!! Secondly, try
and wear nude or light colours. The appearance of a
dress will be totally different if your green polka dot
bra is on show!
C, Be Open-Minded
You will of course have seen lots of beautiful dresses
on Pinterest or the internet which you love and will
make you think 'I want a dress like that!!' However.
you may not have considered what that dress will
look like on your body. The model may have been
petite. and you are 6ft - therefore it will look
different, The model may have big boobs and you
have small ones. therefore it will look different. Try
to be open-minded with the dress styles you try on
- you are then much more likely to find the perfect
dress for you. I really really encourage brides to tell
me which parts they love and which they dislike
about each dress, that then really helps us to
narrow down the styles and design of the dresses.
I hope these will help. Most of all just enjoy
the experience, your boutique will guide
you through the process!
Our diary is open and we are taking bookings
for Bridal Appointments. As always if
anyone would like any help or advice, please
just contact me and I will be more than
happy to have a chat.
Think about the setting and theme of your wedding.
Brides often forget this - they fall in love with this
incredible ballgown with layers of tulle etc and then
realise - they are getting married in Mexico!! Try to
imagine yourself standing at the ceremony in this
dress? It will really help!

Congratulations’ on your Engagement,
it is such an exciting time. Now the fun
begins, it’s time to start planning your
Big Day! There is so much to think
about, but there is one other
important thing to add to your list and
that is entertainment. If you have ever
been to a wedding you will know that
as a guest there is a LOT of standing
around. The last thing you want to be
doing is worrying about whether your
guests are having a good time. This is
where we come in. Our portable 9
Hole Crazy Golf Course really adds that
We supply 9 exciting obstacles including a
4ft tall Castle, a Windmill with turning sails
and a 10ft long Tunnel of Love and the
whole course looks awesome when set up.
We also provide rubber headed putters in 4
different sizes so all ages can play, so some
friendly competition can take place. Due to
the equipment we use, the course is safe to
play indoors and is completely
weatherproof so makes a great addition to
your outdoor space.
So come rain or shine, your guests will be
thoroughly entertained. This really is the
perfect entertainment for everyone. Often
activities are either geared to adults or
children, however with our Crazy Golf
Course your 3-year-old nephew to your 93-
year-old Grannie and everyone in between
can join in!
Creating wedding florals
overflowing with Romantic, Countryside Blooms
I have had the privilege of creating floral
designs for many weddings, at some beautiful
venues in the Midlands and further afield
too. Each and every wedding is different and
it is a huge honour to be a part of every
single one. I love to use bountiful seasonal
blooms - British where possible. Drawing
inspiration from the seasons, I like to
include interesting textures and unusual
details to make every wedding unique.
