Retail Bridal Association Protect your wedding day
Isobel Rhodes's insight:

I think that bridal wear trade association could be very valuble because it makes it easier for a bride to find what is considered as the best shops. Considering that getting married is a very important event for most people they want to get it right so they want to be sure that they are buying from a good company and that everything is going to go right.
