How do your products appeal to the modern bride?
The Vintage Swallow enables the modern bride to easily source cost effective vintage wedding decorations and accessories in one place. We price our products competitively so that couples will not find anything of a similar quality at a better price. Every part of a wedding is special, so we believe buying your decorations and accessories should be an enjoyable experience, which is why all our products are packed with custom packaging, boxes, tissue and ribbons. A special touch that is frequently remarked on by our Brides.
How does your jewellery influence a wedding?
All our jewellery is made by individual UK designers, which means that every piece is unique in style. Such strong designs often influence the era or colour themes that Brides go for. In particular, our Michal Negrin jewellery often dictates which direction a Bride takes the rest of her wedding planning.
What advice would you give a Bride when selecting wedding jewellery?
Always check with your supplier about returns policies. It is vital to try on your jewellery with your dress, and if it does not look right you can save yourself a fortune by being able to return unwanted items. Remember, hygiene regulations mean that all earrings for pierced ears are non-returnable!
