Questions are fun!

Photo: Off to pick up the food for tonight launch party! Hope to see you tonight at Beauty Bar Denver! #party #mobileboutique #crowdfunding

Last night, I had the launch party for Pretty Bride Shop’s RocketHub campaign at Beauty Bar in Denver.  I am so grateful to have been able to have my launch party at such an awesome location. I have been a fan of Beauty Bar for a long time, so to be able to have the party at Beauty was such a treat! I am so grateful for the Denver Fashion Truck and La Lovely Vintage mobile boutique for taking time out of their day and set up right outside of the party! And, I am so grateful for everyone who showed up and who started funding the project!Also, while at Beauty Bar I met some really awesome ladies who were at the bar for happy hour. I am so glad I met them because they have some really awesome businesses, have you ever heard of sexy Yoga? One of the ladies owns a studio that offer sexy yoga, how fun is that?! Plus, they joined our party for a bit. I had so much fun and am so excited to see what will happen next.

While at the party I was being asked some common questions. I wanted to take some time to address them on the blog just in cases someone in the internet world has the same questions. I was asked why I want to make my shop a mobile bridal suite/ mobile bridal boutique. I really feel that the wedding business is changing, not just the trends, but the wedding industry in general. I feel that more an more brides are getting inspired by sites like pinterest and magazines like Martha Stewart Weddings. Brides want their wedding to be different. They want it to be unlike  anyone else they know. Which means they are looking at getting married at venues that are unconventional. Often times these unconventional venues do not have a bridal suite. This has been my first official wedding season and I have noticed that it can be stressful trying to coordinate the timeline of getting ready with hotel rooms or someone’s home. For instance the last wedding I was apart of, the brides room wasn’t clean yet when she arrived, thankfully for her the owner of the hotel had a suite at the hotel that is always ready and she was able to use that suite, but what if there were no rooms available? Her whole wedding day timeline would have been off track. I want to offer brides an option to have a guaranteed space to get ready wherever it is most convenient for them on their wedding day.

Another question I was getting asked a lot was, “how many people will be able to comfortably fit in the mobile suite and how big will the RV have to be?” This is a great question! I am look at RV’s that are 20-30ft in length. I would like to be able to service a bridal party of up to 10 people comfortably. Also, I was asked if anyone else is doing something like this. “Do I have any  competitors?” The answer is yes and no. IF you are in business in any industry, you have competitors. There are some companies that go on location and do hair and makeup at the venue if there is a bridal suite, or to the hotel, or home. No one in Colorado, that I know of, has really built a mobile bridal suite, as in a physical location that will travel to the bride, YET! Also, there are a few other mobile boutiques but there is not a bridal mobile boutique in Denver yet. I feel that I would be able to collaborate with some of the other awesome mobile boutiques in Denver.I feel that this is a great idea and I am sure that I am not the only who has thought of it, but I hope to be one of the first to build it, with your help! If you feel that this is something that brides would love to experience, fund this project: http://rkthb.co/28007.Every Dollar Counts! Any Feedback will help, Feel free to comment with any feed back that you have.

Thank you so much for reading tonight’s Post! I hope that you have enjoyed it!
