I am a firm believer in the dress finding you.....A few weeks ago, I welcomed a bride into the boutique who had just started looking for her dress. She knew she wanted simple, she knew she wanted understated and she knew she wanted to look like her. Our Belle and Bunty gowns fitted the bill perfectly and my bride looked sensational in them. The day before I had received a sample Jenny Packham gown which was unsteamed and hanging up waiting to be prepared for sale. My bride saw this dress, tried it on and the magic happened. Even in its crumpled state, the dress looked like it had been made for her. And it most definitely wasn't understated or simple, but it found my bride.
So the moral in the story? Be open minded. Be prepared to be surprised. And go with your gut instinct.
Finding brides gorgeous gowns by embracing the past with a view to the future.
