We have the privilege of sharing just the sweetest flower girl designs with you this morning! Soft layers of tulle, in every imaginable colour, with a playful fit that your flower girls will look unbearably cute in, while having all the fun at your festival wedding!
Sounds too good to be true right? Well, it is true my friends! Meet the lovely Dainty Dizzy…
Tell us a little about yourself…
Hello I’m Justine and I run Dainty Dizzy from our studio in beautiful (sometimes sunny!) Cornwall.
My business keeps me pretty busy but I also have a young family and husband to look after – as well as our loveable dog Dasher and feisty cat Silves.
All in all life is very full but when I do get some free time it can incorporate a dog walk on a windy Cornish beach, reading a page-turning novel, swimming to keep fit and opening up Mary Berry for some baking !
If you had a chance to go to any music festival, which one would it be?
I love folk and blues so if I could get up to Yorkshire for the Beverley Festival in June to see Kate Rusby that would be amazing! But looking at my schedule quite doubtful….
What made you decide to start Dainty Dizzy?
It was a lifestyle change that led to the beginnings of Dainty Dizzy. We had moved to Cornwall through my husbands job and having spent 15 years in the advertising industry in London I was not really relishing the thought of a long distance job commute whilst juggling the needs of young children.
I began to realise that I could maybe mix my digital marketing background with my passion for textiles and start my own business. The girls wear aspect came about because I simply could not find any truly “special” occasion outfits for my (then) 2 year old daughter to wear to a friends wedding. Everything seemed to come from America and I wanted more of a British quirky style. So I made my daughters tulle based dress myself. This sparked my whole line of tulle inspired collections.
Tell us a little bit more about your Dainty Dizzy…
When it comes to choosing a flower girl outfit we know that our bridal customers have a plethora of great wedding fashion brands to choose from. But our little outfits are unique in the UK market not only in terms of their quality and quirky design but also because with Dainty Dizzy you can fully customise your flower girl dresses to fully match your wedding theme or colour.
You can also have your outfits made to measure so they fit your little bridesmaids perfectly as our skilled team designs and makes all our bridal outfits to order in our studio in Cornwall. Many customers approach us with a “I don’t suppose you can..?” question, and it is our pleasure to (almost always) reply “Yes”!
Our lovely flower girl outfits are just part of what we offer. The personalised, tailor made service that comes before the product is actually delivered is just as important. To us, making sure our brides (and mother of brides) are 100% happy with our communication and service is just as important as the product itself. Taking the some of the stress of the big day away from our customers is our pleasure.
What are some of your favourite memories + experiences from previous weddings you’ve worked with?
One of our favourite weddings was actually one of our first. We had the absolute pleasure of supplying eight flower girl skirts to a “rock wedding” theme! We worked with the bride to decide what type of design was the most appropriate given her theme and came up with the idea of our “festival skirts”. Soft tulle tutu skirts made in bright rainbow colours and trimmed with sparkly sequins. Ultra funky!
The bride was super to work with and really knew what she was looking for but did need our help in making the final design choice. Fun to design and very fun to make!
If our readers were to order your dresses/create a bespoke design with you for their wedding, what can they expect?
Support, help and encouragement to go with their gut instinct.
It’s their big day and their ideas need to be respected and worked with. Very often the first instinct is the correct instinct and we would really encourage this whilst suggesting some design ideas, a few tweaks and practicalities to help formulate their wishes into a reality. We would work hard to deliver a service that communicated to them at every stage from brief to delivery. We take the pressure off and ensure that the purchase of their little flower girl outfits is both fun and exciting whilst the end product is simply stunning. We are proud that recent customer feedback speaks to this :
“Thank you so much for the skirts, they really are wonderful.” – Jenny, Nottingham
“I received these yesterday thank you so much for turning them around so quick their absolutely gorgeous and the girls look lovely in them!” – Nicola, Leicester
“They have just arrived!!!!!!!! Aaaaaahhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!” – Carly, Middlesex
“Thank you so much. Dresses are beyond beautiful. I have tried both of them on the girls. Perfect. They absolutely love them.” – Joanna, Glasgow
How do you know if a wedding supplier is right for your wedding?
You would probably know right from the start from when you pick up the phone to them. Do you feel comfortable? Do you feel that if you were to be a little picky they would respect this? Do you think they really understand your overall vision for the biggest and most important day of your life ? Above all do they sound like they LOVE what they do? If the don’t then why would you choose them?
We do love what we do. Simply love it and would not want to do anything else. We feel this passion can help and add to our customers excitement leading up to their wedding day. Their special little girls deserve the best most beautiful outfits – and we are very happy to supply this to them!
What’s your best piece of advice for couples who’re trying to choose their wedding suppliers?
Know what you want and go for it – don’t take second best and what ever you do DO NOT be swayed by others who see things differently. It’s your big day and you deserve to have exactly what you want, how you want it!
Finally, what’s your life quote/motto?
The most important thing is to try and inspire people so that they can be great in whatever they want to do.
Just the sweetest! We love Dainty Dizzy – they’re gorgeous, fun dresses that your flower girls are sure to love!
Peace + Love
