Bridal boutique quite bazaar

YOU can tell by its name that Bridezilla's Bazaar is not your average bridal store.

Wanting to steer clear of all things traditional and boring, Kymberly Harrison and Julie Willis wanted a catchy name that people would not forget.

“We came up with the name late one night texting each other,” wedding stylist Ms Harrison said. “We didn't want to do the whole mushy girly thing. We wanted something that people would remember.”

And it worked - the Tweed Heads store is already generating interest despite opening just two weeks ago.

Surprisingly, Ms Harrison and Ms Willis say they haven't seen many women turning into “Bridezillas” when they get married.

“I've had one in about the past four years,” photographer Ms Willis said.

“She was really hardcore. She changed the wedding venue three times and the date twice.

“She was the grumpiest girl I've ever seen.”

Unlike other bridal stores in the area, Bridezilla's Bazaar is a “one-stop events shop”, with its owners providing in-store photography and make-up, DIY wedding supplies, floristry, personalised invitations and designer wedding cakes.

“We try to get women to think outside the square and not do what's always been done,” Ms Willis said.

“We even have a fashion consultant who can go out and take the girls shopping.”

The Wharf Street business also caters for school formals, wakes, engagement parties and wedding anniversaries.
