Wedding Supplier Spotlight: Rebel Rebel Bridal
Do you dream of having a vintage or retro gown for your wedding day? If so then boy have you come to the right place!
Today's supplier spotlight is the perfect read for all you vintage lovers as we chat to up and coming online boutique Rebel Rebel Bridal. Owner Nicki focuses on sourcing pre loved pieces as well with a strong ethical stance on promoting sustainability and to steer away from the concept of 'Fast Fashion'.
Without further ado it's over to Nicki to introduce herself and her business.
Hello everyone! I'm Nicki, owner of Rebel Rebel Bridal, a new online boutique offering gorgeously curated vintage and pre-loved bridalwear and accessories.
As a Fashion History graduate I have always been obsessed with all things vintage and retro and once I began planning my own wedding in 2019, I found my passion for bridalwear. Having worked in the fashion industry over the last decade, I decided it was time to put my skills and ideas into my own baby - and so Rebel Rebel Bridal was born! It was important to me to create a brand that not only offered beautiful and unique pieces, but that was affordable and sustainable too.
I am based in Brighton and absolutely love everything about living here, and I plan to open a physical boutique here in the near future. It's such a fun, creative and diverse place that perfectly fits in with my brand, so I feel very lucky! I am a real foodie and love to cook, my favorite being Indian and a good old fashioned roast. I love to travel the world and have been very lucky to visit some wonderful places, New Zealand was definitely one of the highlights so far but there are many more on my list. My other loves are David Bowie (hence the name), RuPaul's Drag Race, cheese and wine (of all varieties) and Coco, my adorable cat.
I tend to think that my biggest selling point is the fact that I offer brides pieces that are not only beautiful and unique, but also affordable and sustainable. All of my dresses are priced under £500, and I also offer a buy back scheme where you can sell the piece back to us after your big day, making it even more sustainable! Another unique selling point is the fact that I accept full returns on any purchase made, something that is somewhat uncommon with vintage and pre-loved items. I understand that buying your wedding outfit is one of the most important purchases you will likely ever make, so I want brides to feel confident when purchasing, in case it’s not quite the one.
Sustainability is now more important than ever for many couples and this is having a bigger impact on their wedding choices, which is great news as traditionally weddings could create a lot of single use waste. I think that the idea of recycling and reusing as much as possible not only is good for the planet, but it also gives your wedding products a chance of a second life, whether it be dresses, accessories, decorations, flowers or anything else that can be shared.
As I am an online boutique, my customers are able to shop online directly from my website (www.rebelrebelbridal.co.uk) or by visiting my Etsy page. Although I love to hear from my customers via my contact form or social media pages.
I wanted to start my own business for so long and it was a little scary finally taking the plunge, but it is such an amazing feeling seeing your vision come to life and I'm so glad that I did. I absolutely love sourcing new pieces for the collection and get so excited when I find something truly stunning that I know my brides will love.
When looking for a wedding outfit, a really important thing for both brides and grooms to do early on is decide on exactly how much they want to, AND how much they can afford to spend. There's nothing worse than falling in love with something only to realize that it is completely out of your price range. It is also important to remember to factor in the cost of alterations too, as it is rare that your outfit will fit perfectly as it is. For both modern and vintage bridal, sizes tend to run very differently to the typical high street sizing, so don't be surprised if you have to size up or down compared to your usual sizing.
I am offering a special 10% discount for Chosen brides on our website. To claim, simply enter the code CHOSEN10 at the checkout. The code will be valid until August 2022 and there is a limit to one per customer.
I will also be showcasing at the London Chosen Wedding Fair this Sunday 20th March 2022 at Islington Assembly Hall 10.30-14.30. I will be bringing a selection of my gowns and accessories for you to view and purchase should you wish to. Tickets for the fair can be purchased HERE or on the door on the day.
