As you may have seen on social media, Lainee Hermsen Bridal is closing down. After fifteen years of creating individually designed wedding dresses for incredibly beautiful brides, I have decided to wind up the business.
I’m so incredibly grateful for all the joy, wonderful memories, stories of love, romance, hope and beauty that bridal design has given me. There are no regrets, only fond memories and a wealth of learning, skills and experience that I can continue to use in my future endeavors.
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 and the ongoing impact of travel restrictions, the fear of restrictions on numbers at weddings and the general global change to the wedding and events industry, Lainee Hermsen Bridal has seen a 75% loss in Business and this has not been not changing.
Below is a brief explanation of our plans for closure:
I want to assure all of my existing clients that their orders are in production and nothing has changed with the production timeline. Rest assured, you will have your stunning custom bridal gowns soon! Feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions.
ALL NEW ORDERS MUST BE MADE BY 30th JULY 2021:
We will accept new orders for made to measure, custom, and bespoke gowns until the 30th of July. That is our final cut-off date.
Please book an appointment with us through our website booking page: Book ASAP if you want to have a unique gown produced for you before we close. These will be completed within three to five months, at which time Lainee will still be part of the fitting process and help to guide you through to your wedding day. Our tailor Sam will still continue to do all of our alterations and tailoring for the coming years. We will be requiring a minimum 80% deposit for these orders to enter our production schedule.
