From: Christine & Maria (Bridal Boutique Owners & Business Coaches)
There is a big problem in running a bridal business right now.
Actually there are 3 big problems
Problem No 1
Too few appointments with too many of your competitors on social media making out that they're doing really well and you feel like you're not perfect and as if you want to give up.
Problem No 2
Too many of your brides saying "I need to sleep on it" or "I have other appointments". You never see them again and you feel you're doing something wrong and you want to give up
Problem No 3
Too many suppliers demanding you buy too many samples making you feel like a failure when you can't pay your bills or yourself and you want to give up.
Christine & Maria are both bridal boutique owners who have come to the same conclusion-that many owners feel isolated, with nowhere to go for support to fix their problems. We also fall into the trap of being busy fools and spend too much time working in our business rather than on our business. They know that many owners can't take time away from their boutiques to attend courses or don't even know where to find them.
This is why they have created the Get Savvy Coaching Membership Group. This supportive community includes a power-packed, online coaching workshop series with videos and workbooks so that ALL bridal boutique owners whether starting up, selling up or simply fed up (or somewhere in between) can access training and networking from their shop, sofa, sitting in a bar using their phone, I pad or laptop anywhere in the world.

You will have access to our Bridal Business Success Path to help you understand where you are at and where you want to go.
You will be part of a supportive community, of bridal owners, some of them have just opened up and others are "Lifers" like us.
You will discover the same strategy that has helped other bridal businesses just like you to start making the money they really want

Here's what our members are saying about
I Joined the Get Savvy Group in March. I had been looking for a training & business support group to help me as I launched my new Bridal Boutique, little did I know just how invaluable this group would be especially as the Covid pandemic has changed how we are able to work in our businesses.
Christine & Maria have filled the training units with great content, making them challenging and fun and as they are all recorded I can work at my own pace or even review and extend my understanding as my new business grows.
I work alone so the weekly Zoom meetings are a fantastic way for me to stay connected to the group, although there is no obligation to join every one of them. I have definitely found that the more input I have, the greater the reward.
Get Savvy has created a great network of fellow bridal shop owners throughout the UK and allowed me the chance to connect with these fabulous ladies. I will be forever thankful to have found Get Savvy.

Get Savvy - well its been a HUGE support mechanism - and its taught us things that we didn’t even know we didn’t even know - but
more than that we have some life long friends who we can literally ask anything about and we know that we will get a frank and truthful
We now look at our business through fresh eyes and see what our brides see and now, what they want.
We leave no stone
unturned when it comes to making decisions big and small about our business and one of
Maria’s favourite lines rings in my ears daily -
“Ladies, if you don’t earn you learn”.
Thank you Get Savvy and Maria and Christine - you’ve been amazing
Helen and Adele - The Little White Dress
Get Savvy has given me confidence as I know that I’m in a group with other boutique owners facing the same issues.
Everything that is discussed I can relate to and it’s all in such a supportive environment.
I no longer feel as if I’m on my own. I joined the main Get Savvy Group after joining The War Room during the first lockdown.
Both groups have been invaluable.
I had thought about charging for appointments for quite some time but to be honest had been nervous to do so as there didn't seem to be any other boutiques in my area making a charge.
Listening to sound advice from Get Savvy gave me the confidence to implement the change and since then I've not looked back.
Thanks Get Savvy, I'm so glad I joined!
Kate - Kate Walker Bridal Room
I joined the Get Savvy group in March 2020, just before the first UK-wide lockdown. In the months that we weren’t able to trade, the Get Savvy group was a welcome source of motivation, encouragement and inspiration to make the most of the unprecedented situation that we all found ourselves in as bridal retailers.
Maria’s wealth of knowledge and experience in bridal sales training, coupled with Christine’s expert guidance on digital marketing has made the Get Savvy membership truly worthwhile and a valued asset in our family-run boutique.
I look forward to the weekly chats and training sessions and have really enjoyed getting to know the other members of the group.

Maria & Christine are excellent consultants, teachers, and role models.
They were always genuine, diligent and caring about what my vision was and walked with me through much of my journey to becoming an entrepreneur.
They provided in-depth guidance and suggestions that helped bring my bridal store alive. Provided and offered additional services when I needed marketing and web-design skills.
I truly couldn’t have done it without them and I’d highly recommend them to anyone seeking guidance for their business endeavor!
