Inspiring women - Thuhien Vuong, Modern Romance Bridal

Women who make their dream happen and start their own businesses are my biggest inspiration. For entrepreneurial souls, like myself, creating is a way of self-expression. Our motivation is far beyond financial success, which is only one of our goals - finding the right ways to succeed while working on ideas and inspiring others are equally exciting parts of the job.

I always knew I wanted to work for myself, because no matter what I had done before, I wasn't completely fulfilled by my professional life. Becoming a photographer helped me to overcome this issue. I decided to find out how this process worked out for other people. I'd like to write a whole blogpost series about women who follow similar paths, simply because talking to them and listening to their stories gives me incredible energy and motivation.

With that being said, ladies and gentlemen, meet my first interview subject, the founder and owner of Modern Romance Bridal, Thuhien Vuong.

Don’t care too much about what other people think. In the end you’re the person who’s going to wear the dress and you need to feel beautiful in your own skin.

Thuhien, please tell me a little about your bridal boutique.

It all started at the beginning of 2018, when my husband popped the big question. 💍 The first thing I did, of course, was to start looking for wedding gowns online. I found a lot of beautiful ones but as it turned out, picking out the dress wasn't as simple. When I went to the shops to try them on, there was always something wrong. I wasn't fond of the styles and the prices were also quite high, so even if I had found my dream dress, it wouldn't have fit in my budget.

What were you looking for exactly?

I was looking for a beautiful, unique, modern and affordable wedding dress. That's when I had an epiphany and realised, that I needed to open my own boutique. I did a very thorough research. I went through countless American and Australian websites to see what the latest trends were. Interestingly enough, I found out that a lot of designers have beautiful dresses that are not available in the Netherlands yet.

So what would you say is the special value that your business provides?

Modern Romance Bridal helps everyone to get unique, exclusive and affordable dresses.

Who is your perfect client?

A confident woman generally from 24 to 38 years old, who loves fashion and unique styles. She knows what she wants and she gets it.

Who is your main inspiration?

Made with Love: romantic, feminine and the perfect combination of modern and traditional. Their special dresses enhance the natural beauty of every woman and help them to become the bride they truly dream to be.

With your experience, what is the one piece of advice you would give to any bride?

Don't care too much about what other people think. In the end you're the person who's going to wear the dress and you need to feel beautiful in your own skin. Listen to your heart, trust yourself and be proud to make your own choice.

Earlier this winter we decided to collaborate with Thuhien and a bunch of talented, lovely ladies.
