The inspiration for starting Your Little Secret followed my own personal, less than impressive, experience of trying to find a wedding dress for my eldest daughter Gemma’s wedding four years ago, and as a result I created Your Little Secret to ensure that every bride that comes to us has an enjoyable and memorable experience.
I began dating my husband Gareth in 1981 and married 8 years later in 1989. Having been married for over 28 years, with 3 children and two Grandchildren, I strongly believe in the sanctity of marriage (and romance of course ???? ) and was thrilled when Gemma married in 2011 and I was able to help plan and organise her wedding with her.
My own mantra during the run up to the wedding was ‘stress free’ and this is what we want for all our customers. A stress-free, wonderful experience.
A wedding should be one of the most special events in your life and we want to ensure that the whole process of buying your dress, often the focal point of any wedding, is a joyful and relaxed experience and one to savour. As a customer you need to be confident that you are buying from a reputable trusted seller, who you know only stocks excellent quality.
Enter………………… ‘Your Little Secret’!
We sell new, ex-sample and pre-loved wedding dresses and accessories on behalf of our clients from our lovely little boutique in the picturesque town of Petersfield in Hampshire and via our website. We are also stockists of Twilight Designs bridal accessories and more recently the Bridal Buddy.
Our boutique is open on an ‘Appointment Only’ basis to ensure that we can provide each of our customers a personalised one-to-one experience where they can browse and try on our dresses at their leisure and decide if the dress is the dress of their dreams.
We want to be able to give our brides-to-be not only the same boutique experience they would receive if buying a bespoke gown, but also the opportunity to buy a high-end, designer gown that they may not normally be able to afford. We also feel that it is important to be available at your convenience, so we are available for appointments not only during the day but evenings and weekends too.
All of our dresses are carefully chosen and we pride ourselves on the condition and quality of all of our gowns. All dresses are immediately available, so we will also be able to help you if you are in a situation where you need a dress at short notice or in an emergency.
More and more people are now hoping to sell their gown after their special day, but we felt that it was very difficult to find anyone who specialises in helping you to do this. It is our experience that many individuals who try to sell on eBay or social media sites struggle, and find that if they are able to sell their dress, that they do not achieve the price that they may wish.
Your Little Secret exists because we want you to have an amazing experience, and find the dress of your dreams at the price of your dreams and whether your dress is new, ex-sample or pre-loved, no one will ever know …………………… it’s ‘Your Little Secret’.
But don’t just take our word for it, Click here to read reviews from some of our very happy customers (the original reviews can be found on our Facebook page)…………..we look forward to meeting you soon ????
I have been happily married for 19 years and have had the privilege of being involved in many weddings, fulfilling various roles.
My wedding was wonderful and completely stress free. My amazing husband arranged everything except my dress, because in his words......'that is the item that will be the most important to you'. This is so true, it is the one item that makes you feel special and beautiful on your wedding day.
My two daughters will definitely want a beautiful designer dress to get married in one day and irrespective of their budgets, I being part of Your Little Secret I now know that designer dresses can be affordable. We completely understand that each bride has a different budget, but that does not mean they can't have a stunning designer dress of their dreams and that is why I love being part of other bride's journey to finding that perfect dress.
I joined Your Little Secret in 2015; It makes me proud to know that we are able to make other brides' wishes come true, by assisting them with finding a dress of their dreams for the price of their dreams.
