Unveiling the Ayrshire Hospice Bridal Boutique for one month only!

Posted on 10 March 2017 by Monika Reichelt

Our shop on Kyle Street in Ayr is transforming into a pop-up Bridal Boutique for the whole month of March. All brides-to-be now have an incredible opportunity to choose from a wide variety of high-end bridal gowns in a very attractive price range. The selection consists of ex-shop samples in sizes from 8 – 16, including designers such as Ronald Joyce, Jonathan James & Benjamin Roberts. The shop also stocks a vast array of stunning, beautifully cared for, second hand bridesmaid dresses, Mother of the Bride outfits and all other kinds of wedding accessories.

Jackie Kennedy, the hospice Retail Business Manager, who came up with the idea of the Bridal Boutique said: “The idea to have a one-off, pop-up boutique came when we were generously gifted thirteen brand new wedding dresses from a local bridal shop. Each one of them is absolutely stunning and any bride would look and feel fabulous wearing any of the designs we have on offer. By choosing our dresses our customers will have an opportunity to save money whilst supporting the hospice allowing us to continue providing excellent care for people of Ayrshire at no cost to patients or their families”.

Claire Stuart-Paulin, Senior Fundraising Officer (Retail) added: “I can’t believe how stunning these dresses are, even the second hand ones. Most of them are worth thousands of pounds and we are selling them for a few hundred. They are in such fantastic condition you’d never know they weren’t brand new! All brides-to-be should come and see for themselves - they will be blown away!’

The Bridal Boutique will be open throughout the month of March only, from Monday to Saturday 10am to 4pm. The shop has a fitting room available and no appointment is necessary. Due to very limited stock, it is recommended that you pop in soon!
