If you’ve been in the boutique lately, you may have been greeted by a new face…That face was probably me!
I’m Danni, the newest addition to the team at MiliMili. As many of you will know, Lauren is expecting her third baby boy in October, so the time has come for her to bring in extra reinforcements, in order to hand over the reins when she goes off on maternity leave (although knowing her, she still won’t relax and leave the shop alone!).
I have a background in marketing and design; with my most recent project being editor-in-chief of a lifestyle publication. But I fell in love with bridal at a young age - I’ve always been obsessed with weddings, and where other kids were more concerned about what was on the sweet cart, I was gazing in awe at the bride’s dress.
Get To Know Me
Favourite designer: Enzoani
Favourite dress style: Fishtail
Bridesmaid duties: 7 (and counting!)
Favourite dress colour: Ivory, with a layer of darker champagne or nude to make the lace really stand out!
Most likely to be seen at a wedding…: On the dance floor, probably busting out some terrible Prosecco-inspired moves
I am a big fan of unusual, unique wedding dresses: which is what led me to discover MiliMili. A huge Enzoani fangirl, I started following MiliMili on Instagram when I found out they were the only stockist within a 40-mile radius of me - and you can only imagine my delight when they were also hiring!
In my few weeks at MiliMili so far, I’ve learned SO much from Lauren and Abby and am really looking forward to helping all the beautiful brides-to-be (bride-to-bes? Answers on a postcard) find the perfect dress for their big day.
I’m on hand to offer advice and guidance on the dress-searching process, help you try on different styles and work out what suits your body shape and style. I have a lot of visible tattoos, which is something a lot of brides tend to want to cover or hide, but I enjoy finding dresses that really complement those features. If you’re a bride with a distinctive look, I’d love to help you with this too!
I’m even there to offer an ear if you need to vent about stressful wedding planning. (Did I mention I’m also an epic events organiser? You name it, I’ve had to deal with it!) I’m recently engaged myself, so I love chatting to brides about plans for their wedding; I’ve had some great tips so far!
If you have any questions, just fancy a chat, or want to book an appointment to come and try on a selection of our beautiful gowns, feel free to drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Look forward to meeting you all!
