With 46 fabulous retailers over 11 categories, we're so excited to reveal our shortlist for the You & Your Wedding 2014 Bridal Retail Awards.
Nine industry experts, including Y&YW's own Editor Maxine Briggs and Editor-At-Large Peta Hunt, joined forces earlier this month to select the brands that they think offer top service to our beloved brides. Also in the panel were luxury event and wedding planner Mark Niemierko, Hyde Park Mandarin & Oriental manager Tony McHale, fashion designer Tabitha Webb, Pandora marketing guru Isabella Mann, McQueens floral design founder and MD Kally Ellis, designer and boutique owner Donna Ida Thornton and celebrity hairdresser Richard Ward. With such an array of talent to cast their eyes across the wedding spectrum, we couldn't wait to let you know who they've marked as retail royalty.
The awards celebrate those who provide the best experience for couples planning their big day, and all our finalists are tip top at helping make the journey from just engaged to blushing bride as fun and fabulous as possible. The winners of each category will be announced in style at our glittering awards ceremony in January– watch this space.
