Our team at The Modern Bride has grown and we couldn’t be more excited! This is the perfect opportunity to introduce you to all the beautiful babes who make The Modern Bride so successful! Each week we will share some fun facts to highlight one of our #TMBTeam members. If you missed our last posts, learn more about our team here. Today, we are introducing you to our detail-oriented and accessory queen Boutique Curator, Alicia Gibson!
Let’s start with fun facts about you! What are three things people would be surprised to learn about you, Alicia?
Family is #1 for me, so I always make time for my husband James and our dog Sophie.
I am a long-time watcher of acclaimed BBC series Coronation Street! I’ve been watching it since I was 8 and I am currently reading the 50-year saga to find out how it all began!
I am a big foodie, so my honeymoon was planned around places to eat in Croatia, thanks to the help of Anthony Bourdain.
Now onto the bridal questions! You’ve already tied the knot, but do you prefer a spring/summer/fall or winter wedding?
I have always loved a spring wedding. I even planned my own wedding around the blossoming of the peony!
If you were to renew your vows today, what TMB wedding dress would you pick to walk down the aisle in?
Brigitte by Anais Anette! I love the floral lace, the modern cut along the side seam and that it's Canadian!
What is your favourite part of a bridal appointment?
My favourite part of the bridal appointment is the moment when the bride is standing in the change room in her favourite dress and she is smiling because she knows it's the one!
You are the accessory queen, so it would only be fair to ask what is your favourite bridal accessory?
I can’t choose just one, but my favourite look would be the Alyssa earrings from Joanna Bisley with the Julene hair pins from Olivia the Wolf, and the Delphine veil from Atelier Elise. I love our Canadian designers!
So, it’s fair to say that you prefer veil over no veil?
Veil all the way! Veils elevate the romance.
Despite seeing the dress, what would you say if you favourite part of a wedding?
Easy answer, the first kiss!
Why do you love working at TMB?
There are many reasons why I love working at TMB! I love being a part of a growing women-driven business and I love how we give back to the community I grew up in. I love the excited brides that come through our doors and I love hearing how we made the experience special for them and their family. I love the team we have established and I think that we all play such a vital role in making the business what it is today. Lastly, I love coming into work and seeing the amazing women that I work with.
