After getting engaged in 2018, I was never someone who saw myself as a ‘bride’. I knew I wanted to get married eventually but never thought I’d have a big white wedding. Needing something to wear for my big day, a friend of mine took me wedding dress shopping, all over Dubai. Initially, I was quite reluctant to go; I struggled to enjoy the whole process and find a dress that made me look in the mirror and say, “wow, this is perfect for me”. Looking at my reflection in the mirror, I couldn’t see myself walking down the aisle in any of the dresses I tried on or came across.
I decided to broaden my search and ended up traveling to the UK, where I visited a small, independent bridal boutique. The whole experience converted me to being a wedding dress lover; my entire journey with this boutique was wonderful throughout! The designers were awesome, and the vibe of the boutique was laid-back yet professional. I pondered on my whole experience and thought to myself “If only a place like this existed in Dubai and why doesn’t it!
Along with the incredible designers that I discovered, the service and selection of styles would work so well for brides looking for modern and non-traditional dresses just as I did.
After doing some research and speaking to previous brides and brides-to-be, I realised that there was a gap in the bridal market in Dubai. We all shared or experienced similar frustrations during our journey as a bride. That’s when I decided to take the leap and open Ginger + Poppy Bridal Boutique. A boutique that offers brides in Dubai access to exclusive, independent designers who create original and modern wedding dresses.
