Mothers of the groom – how to make your son proud on his wedding day

Sunday, March 5th, 2017

Friday, December 30th, 2016

” I need to diet before I buy any dresses!” If I had a pound for every time I hear a customer tell me that, I would be sunning myself on a luxury yacht in the Bahamas by now! Worst still, is the woman who buys dresses that don’t fit her and says she is […]
