I recently met with Diala, owner and founder of The Bridal Showroom in JLT. Our paths have crossed several times at various wedding industry events but we had yet to sit down, and talk business. Well, when I say business, I really mean obsess over weddings and work out a plan to work together. I’m so lucky that I love what I do that sometimes I forget its my job. We discussed the wedding scene, brides, and the most popular styles of wedding dresses over a skinny latte at my usual Starbucks.
The Bridal Showroom is is located in JLT, and is one of the nicest bridal stores I’ve come across in Dubai. Spacious, professional and convenient are three words that spring to mind when I was asked to describe The Bridal showroom, from a a newly engaged bride-to-be.
The Bridal Showroom have a lovely collection of designers in store, which make shopping for your wedding dress that little bit more exciting. One my my personal favorites is Allure Bridals and I just fell in love with their AW 2014 collection. The touch of pink in the dress below really makes me weak at the knees… I think I have a touch of ‘bridal envy’.
About Diala -Founder & owner of The Bridal Showroom…
For Diala Abu Issa, the business of ensuring good presentation is something that runs in the family. Her grandfather was one-time photographer to the Qatari Royal Family and her father was a leader and entrepreneur. It seems only natural then that Diala should end up running her own business helping brides look their best. Diala is a firm believer in the personal touch. She prides herself in attending most of her bridal fittings so that she can be present to offer advice and listen to wants and needs directly.
Diala expects a professional customer service wherever she shops and likewise aims to ensure her customer receives the best service that she herself can deliver. Diala strongly believes in investing in her employees, with her philosophy being that as well as providing a better standard of service, a well-trained staff is a happier team. As a result of this ethos, her Consultants receive regular customer service training and updates on new trends in the industry.
Recognising that every bride in a cosmopolitan city such as Dubai deserves the best on an international level, Diala travels to Europe and New York several times a year to undertake buying and to see new bridal developments first-hand.
The Bridal Showroom also stock collections by bridal designers such as Justin Alexander, Mori Lee, Sophia Tolli, Eve of Milady and David Tutera. If you’re a bride-to-be in Dubai then I suggest you visit Diala and her team at The Bridal Showroom JLT or Galeries Lafayette at Dubai Mall.
