WFML Real Bride: Katharine

Posted by on

We loved creating a completely custom gown for Katharine! Continue reading to hear all the wonderful details of her big day! 
So please tell us - with months (or even years!) of planning, did the Big Day run smoothly?
Clint asked me to marry him in June 2018 and we were married in June 2019 so I had 1 whole year of planning! Since I was little I have dreamt of my “big day”, so I had lots of ideas about what I wanted. I found myself planning two weddings, what I wanted and what I could afford. Fortunately with the help of our amazing parents, these two things became a closer reality than I could have ever imagined. For everything to run smoothy, I simply employed the best vendors and let the venue speak for itself. I am extremely detailed orientated, so I feel this assisted with ensuring everything looked perfect on the day. My supportive bridesmaids and family ensured the day ran perfectly, without a hitch and the weather came to the party making it a dream come true! 
 
Was your wedding themed? Did you and your hubby go for a traditional feel or more contemporary style?
I’m not one for themed weddings. I kept it extremely contemporary with a traditional catholic ceremony. The simplicity is what made it so beautiful! 
How did The Dress fit into your theme? Did you have an idea of which style you wanted before beginning the search for your Bridal Gown? And did this change much after you saw the girls at WFML?
When I began the search for my Bridal Gown, I had an idea in mind, but after going to several bridal boutiques, nothing felt as comfortable or right as WFML did. Vanessa was just amazing. She put everything I had dreamed of into a custom made dress and I couldn’t have asked for anything more. From start to finish Vanessa was amazing. Even down to every specific detail in the fitting of the lace sleeves to specification of the layers and fabric. I could not recommend WFML more.
 
Did your man choose his Suit? Or with some guidance did you help him? Did his suit compliment your gown? (or was it the other way around?). 
Right from the start, Clint knew that he wanted to a classic black tuxedo. He wanted to look and feel just as amazing as I did. Clint's black tuxedo was perfect as it would compliment any selection I made.
How many dresses did you try on before you knew it was the one? 5? 10? 15+?
I only tried on 1 other dress before knowing a WFML grown was going to be perfect for me. My dress was completely custom down to the finest detail, and was me to a tee.
How did your gown make you feel on your very Special Day?The way you “feel” in a dress is paramount and the way it fits is so important. My day would not of been the same without my customised gown, that fitted me absolutely perfectly, I felt stunning on the day! 
Were the girls from When Freddie met Lilly helpful in what can be quite a busy and time consuming process when find The Dress?
Omgosh! They could not have been more perfect! The service was personalised and absolutely amazing!
Any tips for our future Brides choosing a gown that makes the day complete?
Select someone you feel comfortable with! When I first met Vanessa, I just knew I was in good hands. From the first meeting until the last fitting I knew I could trust Vanessa and the product provided. My dress could not have been more perfect! 
If there is anything you would like to add?
Be decisive, and surround yourself with supportive helpful people and enjoy the process.
