My wedding dress shopping experience.I had three bridal appointments prior to the Wedding Shoppe. I went into all the appointments with an open mind and tried on many different styles and fabrics to learn what did and didn’t look good on me. At each appointment, I’d find a dress or two that I liked, but I always felt I should keep looking, believing there was something out there that I would like better.
Enter the Wedding Shoppe.I brought my mom, sister, grandma, and aunt wedding dress shopping with me. My bridal consultant Molly listened to what I had learned about my tastes in my previous appointments. She selected dresses for me to try on based on my experiences and the bridal gown silhouettes I liked. The most difficult part was that the features I liked in dresses were often conflicting, or a dress would only have some of the elements that I wanted. I liked strapless, but only a sweetheart neckline. I liked beading, but not too much. I couldn’t decide between bridal gown silhouettes, either. I liked a fitted dress, but also a ball gown silhouette. I liked satin, but I also liked lace. At the Wedding Shoppe, I was able to find the ultimate combination of everything. I selected a Sophia Tolli dress, and I am so excited about it! pick-ups. The bodice is fitted over the hips and ruched, with volume in the skirt. I am so happy that I waited to buy my dress at the Wedding Shoppe, because the dress is such a perfect blend of all the bridal gown silhouettes and details that I like!
The Search for Coral Bridesmaid DressesWhile my bridal gown shopping was a well-researched adventure, the bridesmaid dresses were a completely different story. I knew that I wanted my girls to wear coral bridesmaid dresses. The problem? Every designer’s version of coral is different. Some were too pink, while others were too orange. When I originally started looking at dresses, I’d left some of my favorite stores out of the mix, because their dresses were too expensive. However, when I got an email that one of them was having a 60% off all dresses sale, I just couldn’t resist looking online. Well, as luck would have it: A style I liked was available in the perfect shade of coral (guava juice to be exact)!
