I came into this job always wanting to work for bridal and having that passion for the industry, and it definitely helps me in my job at WED2B. Having a job doing something you enjoy is definitely key and if you don’t have a passion for bridal, weddings or fashion you may not enjoy it here. It is the toughest job I’ve ever had, but that’s what makes it better than just a standard retail job. You are challenged with the brides that you dress in finding a dress that they want, using your knowledge of the company and stock to create an outfit that they will love and wear on their big day. Sometimes it can be stressful, and you may feel pressured, so if you can’t handle a high pressure environment this job probably isn’t for you. However, with that comes a lot of reward. Not only do you feel great when you get to be a part of a brides special day - especially when you’re the one who picks her dress for her, the company run regular incentives with rewards which creates a great sense of competition between consultants and stores. I have always felt supported by management at WED2B with my mental health and have had the opportunity to cut down and pick up hours whenever needed. I’ve made some friends for life at this store and there is always such a great sense of community within the girls that work there. If you want a standard retail job where you sit behind a till all day and you don’t get to connect with your guests, this isn’t for you. But if you enjoy building a rapport with guests and feeling like you’ve achieved something at the end of a day, it’s worth applying!
