So, it’s that time of year again … John Lewis has brought a tear to our eye and that fuzzy feeling to our heart. However, Christmas has come a little early in the boutique as we have been given a very special gift of our own. We have been awarded RBA membership (Retail Bridalwear Association), and we could not feel more proud!
What this means for the Boutique?
As an RBA member we have gone through a selection process which assesses the quality of the owners and staff, the bridal labels offered offered and the general presentation of our boutique to the public. One of the RBA’s specifications is: ‘the bride must be able to relax with experienced staff to advise her in a professional atmosphere.’
We are honoured to be one of the very few bridal retailers, not only in West Yorkshire, but throughout the UK, to be accredited this prestigious membership within the bridal industry. So a huge thank you and very well done to our amazing team who have worked so hard make this possible!
What does this means for the Bride?
So, what does RBA membership mean for the bride? The RBA is a nation wide organisation of well-established and reputable independent wedding dress retailers, which only recognises the best in the industry. So you can be 100% sure that you are buying the most important dress of your life, from one of the leading bridal retailers in the UK!
Being part of the RBA also means that, when you purchase your bridal gown from our store, you are entitled to register for extra financial protection, under the Bride Protection scheme. So, in the unlikely event that a RBA member store should close before you can collect your dress, the association will ensure that they locate a replacement gown or refund your deposit. But do rest assured – the RBA only accredits retailers with a solid financial background who have been trading for over five years.
The BPS (Bride Protection Scheme) is completely free, however you must register your purchase with the RBA, please ask in store for details.
‘It really means so much to the Limelight team and I to be recognised for our service to all the clients we have the pleasure of working with, and of course we wouldn’t have received this accreditation without the beautiful brides that have made Limelight what it is today – thank you!’
