My Mooshki Story…….So Far

It was a wet miserable morning but I jumped out of bed with excitement. My first wedding fayre as a real life bride. We had not long set the date of our wedding and the excitement was taking over me, I became similar to a hyperactive child.

Johnny, my hubby to be forced himself to get ready as he really wasn’t excited at the prospect of me running around with brochures, leaflets and cakes samples hanging from my mits. But he came along with a smile never the less.

When we arrived at Bridal Gathering, I could see stalls of sparkly things, flowers, dresses, dresses, dresses. I couldn’t wait to have a look around.

The first stand that really grabbed my eye from walking in the door was what looked to me to be very expensive. I thought to myself ‘let’s by pass that one….looks a bit out of my budget’ But as I walked past I couldn’t help but stare in amazement at the dresses that the models were wearing…..I had never seen a wedding dress like that. How different….JUST WHAT I WANT!

So I was introduced to Olivia Wright, the designer for Mooshki. Wow, as soon as I started to tell her my ideas she knew exactly what I wanted, her passion for what she does shone through and I could tell I could trust my wedding dress in her hands.

After the wedding fayre I told everyone who came into contact with me that I had found my dress maker. And before long Vikki from Mooshki was in touch.

I went along to see Vikki, with my mam and my maid of honour and we got cracking with the ideas of what my ideal dress would be like. Vikki told me that she would give my ideas to Olivia and see what she could come up with and email me with the designs. And there, when my emails were next opened, was my dress….MY DRESS! Like nothing I have seen before….Mine, and as beautiful as I had always imagined.

As I would like to decrease in size, width wise, Mooshki will not be taking my measurements until next year but I am one happy Bridezilla knowing that my dress is going to be just perfect.

Thank you Mooshki x x ☺

Dress of the Month

Gold Taffeta Ball Gown wedding gown

This has to be one of the most stunning gowns we have ever designed. I fell in love with this dress the moment it was complete. Truly magnificent dress with an out of this world 4 meter long train … just to add a touch of drama. This dress has become a firm favourite with some of our brides who all have amended it slightly to give it their own individual twist. Some by adding roses to the bodice, some removing them completely and some brides even ordering it in black.

The dress has a tight fitted bodice with a ruffle across the arms to give an off the shoulder detail. The back of the bodice sees a lace up detail which adds to the “Gone with The Wind” look. The skirt is made up of 3 layers of taffeta leading into that magnificent train. We have a pleated tulle detailing at the front of the dress underneath the pick ups highlighted with handmade taffeta roses.

A dress worthy of any castle surroundings to give a true princess style wedding. Remember, all of our dresses can be amended to suit your individual requirements and we never make the same dress twice. You will be walking down the aisle in a truly unique couture gown designed specifically for you.
