When a son or daughter is getting married, there’s always plenty to think about before the big day. Top of the list for the mother of the bride or groom, however, is likely to be the all-important wedding outfit.
If you live in Preston or the Fylde, within your reach are the very personal services of a true fashion expert, with over 30 years’ experience of making women look their absolute best.
Pat Haslam owns Revente and Revente Weddings, luxury resale dress shops in Lytham, where the outstanding quality of outfits and accessories is matched only by the unrivalled service. “If you want to look absolutely perfect, you should be personally styled and that’s what I do,” says Pat. “For weddings, it’s a one-to-one service where you’ll have my undivided attention and we’ll find exactly the right outfit for you.”
Based above Clifton Collectables, on Clifton Street, Revente Weddings has a breath-taking range of mother of the bride or groom outfits from the most sought-after labels such as Veni Infantino, Condici, Irresistible by Veromia, Ian Stuart, John Charles and Linea Raffaelli.
Looking around, it’s hard to believe that everything isn’t brand new. “That’s because I only accept items of exceptional quality,” explains Pat. “I’m extremely particular about what comes in, because my customers expect the very best. Everything here looks and feels brand new.”
The quality is certainly there, but there’s something else that makes choosing your special outfit with Pat such a joy. She has a meticulous eye when it comes to occasion wear, but it’s her genuine warmth and complete honesty that truly sets her apart.
“Honesty is key. I would rather a customer left with nothing, than with an outfit that doesn’t look perfect,” she says. “I can tell what will look good on someone and I like to encourage people to try new styles they haven’t considered before. The results can be jaw dropping!”
Pat also has a fantastic collection of shoes, handbags, hats and fascinators, from Prada, Gucci, Chanel and others, so customers can complete their whole outfit. “Whatever your size or shape, we’ll make you look stunning, from your hat right down to your shoes.
“So many customers come to see me after the event, to say thank you and tell me how wonderful they felt all day.”
If you have a fabulous outfit, purchased in the last two years and worn only once, you could take it into Revente. “Truly beautiful clothes shouldn’t be confined to a wardrobe. If you have a luxury item that still looks brand new, bring it to me for resale.”
Personal stylings at Revente Weddings are by appointment only. Please give Pat a call, or pop into the original Revente shop on Pleasant Street Parade.
