Meet Nicole Piedra of Happily Chic Designs in Miami Lakes

Today we’d like to introduce you to Nicole Piedra.

Nicole, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Happily chic started as a hobby and side hustle in our guest bedroom of our first apartment as a married couple.

I have always had a love for creating and DIY. When I got married in 2016, I hand made all of my bridesmaids proposal boxes and fell in love with the process and when our wedding planning was over, I just knew I had to keep it going! So I decided to take a leap of faith and start selling on Etsy.

I studied the ins and outs of selling online and started making all sorts of new products to add to my shop on a daily basis! I was OBSESSED!

In just over two years, we expanded and outgrew our little home business. We now operate from a 1,200 ft commercial space with five employees!

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Nothing that’s worth having comes easy! Every hardship I have faced in this business has been a stepping stone for what we are today!

Considering our business is very competitive, some of the struggles we have had is to constantly better our brand and stand out from others doing exactly the same thing!

But, my biggest challenge to date has been growing my small business after becoming a mother. This is a whole new challenge in itself that I’m still learning to balance every day!

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Happily chic designs – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of and what sets you apart from others.
Happily chic specializes in bride and bridal party gifts! We are a fun and unique company always willing to go the extra mile for our customers!

I am very proud of how far we have come and how much we have accomplished in such little time but above all, I am most proud of our customer service. My team and I pride ourselves in making every item with close attention to detail as if it were for our own weddings!

We work with ALL BRIDES and their budgets and have shipped to over 33 different countries! We also have over 4,200 positive reviews!

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
We are so excited for so many new things already lined up for 2020! Within the next year, we plan to add over 100 new products to our inventory!

We are also most excited about offering same day personalization from our office/shop for local brides in south Florida!
