Why this business was started
I purchased this as my first business from a gentleman who started it for his wife, who had zero interest in it. I was very attracted to the high profit potential it has. I have spent countless hours in revamping the site, importing product, researching for new product, and reaching out to designers who are willing to sell wholesale in lower numbers (not bulk).
The reason of selling this business
My marketing skills are weak and this business deserves more. I have great ideas for it, and have worked hard to give it the facelift it currently has, but it really deserves someone who either loves bridal or has experience in bridal.
What's involved in running this business
- Running adverts for the business (established IG and FB pages, with advertisement history)
- Current bridal gown wholesalers require a minimum order of 3 items
- Hair accessories are drop shipping, one item at a time is okay to order from them.
- Research dress designers who are willing to sell smaller amounts to businesses (not bulk) for plus size dresses.
- Write copy for new products (these dresses are beautiful, high quality, and made to order. The more detail on a dress, the better, for potential buyers)
- Shopify plan

How to grow this business
What this store needs is a plus size option, from a quality designer. It also needs strong marketing techniques and a reassurance to brides. The dresses are quality, from a highly regarded designer, but there is a stigma in purchasing wedding dresses online. The new owner will need to be able to address their customers with confidence in the product. Suggestions for future owners: a blog (to get returning customers to the site), expansion on misc. products, including bridal robes and bridal party gifts, reach out to more designers to carry their products, reach out to current designers for specifications on fabrics and embellishments used, purchase one dress for a video for social media to showcase to customers.
