From student to seamstress to wedding planner to then bridal salon owner- Signe Marie Jeppesen is a well rounded business woman.
Signe Marie Jeppesen, owner of Kennedys, had always dreamed of owning a business and she has accomplished that a few times already. Her career in the wedding business started once she graduated from Copenhagen Academy of Fashion and Design and she then went on to be an alterations seamstress and sales person in a bridal shop. In 2005 her love for weddings grew and she wanted to be more involved in the decision making process, which lead her to start her own wedding planning business. And just a few years later she became the owner of Brudesalonen Kennedys in Aarhus Denmark.
Kennedys does not have your ordinary seamstress or sales personnel in the salon. They only staff graduated tailors and designers in order to give brides the absolute best advice when choosing a wedding dress. The staff knows everything there is to know about silhouettes, style and fabrics. Brides will only need to meet with one person for during the whole process because the person who sells them their wedding dress will also do their alterations.
The spacious location, elegant chandeliers, high ceilings, charming furniture and attention to privacy is only a few of the things that distinguishes Kennedys. Private rooms are available for the bride and 6-8 guests to try on the most gorgeous wedding gowns all while having a glass of champagne. Brides also have the option to book the entire salon for an evening to help their guests find their evening wear.
And throughout the year the bridal salon offers private special events where brides can learn about wedding planning, bridal hairstyles, and bridal make-up.
Signe Marie shares her a few tips for brides:
“Come with an open mind. What you think is the bridal gown of your dreams might be a totally different one. You have to try on every style to know which one is perfect for you and your figure.
Also, search on the web to find a maximum of 3 salons that you would like to visit. And remember the more information and pictures they have on their website the better – then you know they are not hiding anything from you.”
