Our team at The Modern Bride has grown and we couldn’t be more excited! We decided this would be 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; first up, we have our fierce and fearless, boss-babe founder, Jessica Hirst.
Ok Jess, first things first, would you rather a spring/summer/fall or winter wedding?
Such a hard choice; I always seem to have a chill so I’m partial to summer, BUT I have to say winter wedding, for the sleeves!
If you got married today, what current TMB dress would you wear?
Colonia - Atelier Pronovias! I love the neckline and sultry cutouts paired with the classic sleekness of the completely plain crepe.
What is your opinion on the highly-debated bridal topic: Veil or No Veil?
Veil! Always a veil! More specifically, a soft blusher and cathedral length veil. When are you ever going to get away with wearing a veil again?!
Out of all the current wedding dress trends, what is your favourite?
Peek-a-boo cutouts and slits!
What is your absolute favourite part of a wedding?
The first look! I have seen A LOT of weddings, but I have to say that the first look still gets me choked up. Also, any tears on the groom’s part absolutely slays me.
Most important, why do you love working at TMB?
TMB is something that I never imagined, but I can't imagine my life without it now! The women who currently make up TMB have truly (and almost literally) helped lay the foundation for who we are, and I am so proud. Each staff member who has joined us has become family and together I don't think there is anything that we can't accomplish. Corny, I know, but spend one appointment here and you’ll get it. These girls really make this place something to be proud of!
Now for the fun of it, what are 3 things people may not know about you?
1. Pickles (or olives) would be my last meal, hands down.
2. I can pour a Guinness with a perfect shamrock on top.
3. I own about a million pairs of shoes, but spend most of the time barefoot.
