Brides come into our boutique every day and say ‘how will I know if it’s the right one’. And this is a very fair question when you consider the number of designers available such as Maggie Sottero, Martina Liana, White Rose, Jenny Packham, Ian Stuart, David Tutera, Bianco Evento, Eternity Bride, Pronovias, White One, St.Patrick, Essense of Australia, Eddy K, Morilee, Allure and the list continues......... Then there’s the style to choose; should it be Aline, Princess, Ballgown, Fitted, Sheath, Mermaid, Trumpet, Boho. Then there’s the colour to consider......who knew there could be so many shades of white or ivory?! Or do you step outside of convention and choose a totally different colour. Then there’s the fabric, lace, tulle, chiffon , silk, satin, taffeta.........??Agghhhhh!
So where do you actually begin? Our advice is, be open-minded, try on lots of different styles and take it from there. It is usually a very smooth process to quickly eliminate the shape and fabric that isn’t for you and when you do find your perfect dress you will just know and your smile will say it all.
Our biggest advice is don’t allow yourself to be pressured into buying a dress, if you aren’t sure walk away. If you can’t get the dress out of your mind then you will know it is the one. But if it is the one and you feel a million dollars then you know what to do.......’say yes to the dress’.
