Hello! My name is Sarah and I’m the founder of Be Unique Bridal. Here’s my story…
Growing up I never found the right fitting clothes; I was very tall and slender. The fashion never seemed to accommodate me. All too soon I realised the easiest way to get around this problem was to create my own customized garments! So, I set forth and taught myself to sew on my grandmother’s vintage sewing machine. Before long, I had myself an entire custom, unique wardrobe.
While in high school, I continued to make my own clothes. Prom rolled around and I set myself the task of designing and constructing my Prom dress. This was much more complicated than the usual outfits I had made, but I loved the process and the final result. On the night I arrived in my custom dress and all my friends were speechless! This got me hooked.
I continued to design and sew clothes for myself, friends and family as a hobby throughout University and my first job as a medical writer. Then, the big day happened; I was getting married. Only one thing was on my mind – I get to make my own wedding dress! Shortly after the wedding, word had spread and friends-of-friends started requesting that I make them their wedding gowns. It was then that I realized that I wanted to do this for a living rather than working in an office!
Luckily, shortly after our wedding, Chris (my husband) was offered a job in Boulder Colorado. We decided to make the journey from the UK to the USA. With the move, came the freedom to follow my dream, and I set up a business making custom clothes! At first, I made custom clothing for everyday wear. However, I kept receiving requests for bridesmaid dresses and wedding gowns. So, Be Unique Bridal was born.
