The Future of Retail Is The End Of Wholesale |

This is a great blog and a so very true and worrying for retail.

We have spent years building a brand for a company who turns round and decides to become a retailer. With their massive advertising budget we can not compete and neither can there other stockists. All they have done is make the stockist re think and start to compete against them,which has resulted in prices tumbling which is what they didn't want to happen.

If you are a wholesaler just stop and think and if you are a retailer make sure you know the facts about your suppliers intentions.

So proud to be awarded Top Ten Prom... - The Wedding Boutique

come join us on our facebook page

Thank you #Carlisle for your support and as we know our dresses (PROM FROCKS) actually flew off the rails.


At The Wedding Boutique we dye shoes and handbags. This is no big secret because this is what we do, day in and day out but the reoccurring question is whether the dyes will run if the shoes get splashed with rain and wine.

Cobalt Blue

Shoe dyes are water based and if they are not locked into place with a protector then they will get damaged should you get them wet. However if the dye is of a light colour then the shoe can be over dyed to a darker one but not if a protector has been used to stain guard them. This is the choice of the wearer for the occasion in question. It is said that the shoes will only be worn once in that colour so a decision not to protect is the better choice so the shoes will live and be worn another day.

See how the water just runs off.

This gives you a good idea of what a protector spray can do and shows that once the protector spray is applied your colour is locked in and the fabric is impervious to moisture.

A great piece or writing which I am delighted to say is credited to The Wedding Boutique.

Good tips and avoidance's when buying Wedding Shoes online and I guess many of the points raised applies to online buying in general when purchasing for your big day.
