Hi Everyone,, What a crazy January we had and this month is shaping up to be the same.

Deliveries of our new season 17/18 dresses are arriving daily and it’s like Christmas every day for an entire month! I have to say the styles are out of this world and we are super excited to show them off….and the best news is that we have a huge selection in all sizes from 8 to 30 all in store.

I get a lot of messages and emails from plus size brides-to-be who express their shyness and nerves about coming for their first bridal appointment.

Thankfully they are never disappointed due to the compassionate, understanding service they receive and the fabulous selection of dresses they get to try on. I put real emphasis on ‘try on’, I think there is nothing more soul destroying than going for an appointment where the bride, who is already weight conscious is squeezed into a dress and made imagine how it would look if it fitted her.

So, when I am away buying each season’s dresses, very careful consideration is given to the style and size I choose. At No.8 our aim is to ensure no matter what size you are we want you to look and feel amazing on one of the biggest days of your life and we are there to assist in whatever way possible.

So, not only has it been crazy with deliveries, we have been shooting PR videos for Cookstown Bridal Showcase event. We are super excited to be in partnership with Mid Ulster Council for this wonderful event on February 11 from 11.30am to 4pm in the Burnavon Theatre in Cookstown. This event offers everything a couple needs to plan their big day with the best wedding suppliers Cookstown has to offer on hand to chat and offer advice on their special offers throughout the day and it’s totally free.

This is more than just a Bridal Fayre, this is a chance to see all the bridal services from the whole of Cookstown at the same time in one location. We will be showcasing our stunning dresses at two fashion shows throughout the day. It promises to be a brilliant day out with a chance to win
a £250 voucher to use with any of the businesses exhibiting at the show. Looking forward to seeing you all there.

Until next month,

Michelle X
