Our big day ran perfectly. My husband and I had a very short engagement – only four months in total. He was a wonderful groom, very involved in the planning and always keen to help out. My mother was also a wonderful help to me.

Was your wedding themed? Did you and your hubby go for a traditional feel or more contemporary style?
Our wedding was not themed. My husband and I went for a traditional feel to the wedding. We got married at St Paul’s Presbyterian Church in Spring Hill, an old and beautiful church.

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?
My dress fit perfectly with our traditional theme. The lace sleeves were so elegant and timeless. It also fit in well with the church wedding. I knew that I did not want a strapless dress before I started searching.

We wouldn’t change a thing! We had a destination wedding in Queenstown, New Zealand during Winter and I was a bit worried about having it outside and being cold in my dress, but we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day. Perfect weather to top off a perfect day.

The biggest questions you will need to ask yourself at this point is who do I want to be in my bridal party and who do I want to be my matron/maid of honour? At When Freddy met Lilly, we know that this is a huge decision. So we want to help you, making part of your wedding planning very easy. That is why we have a stunning line of wedding and bridesmaid’s dresses for you to choose from. With that being said, however, let’s move onto some of the top tips for choosing your bridal party for the wedding of your dreams.

Include the People Whom You Feel Closest To

Ask yourself who you would most like to be standing with you at the altar before you make any final decisions. You want to choose people that you are close too, not people who you truly don’t even like. For example, don’t choose your third cousin to be in the bridal party just because your mom thinks that you should.

Our wedding day was perfect and everything ran smoothly, I wish I could do it all again and make it go slow, the time just goes far too quick.

Was your wedding themed? Did you and your hubby go for a traditional feel or more contemporary style?
We didn’t have a theme. Our wedding was a mix of both traditional and contemporary, bringing together both of our styles. We both really wanted certain aspects of tradition in our wedding ceremony with a more contemporary style reception. We wouldn’t change a thing about it, everything was just how we imagined.

Was your wedding themed? Did you and your hubby go for a traditional feel or more contemporary style?
The wedding was not themed as such but the feel was romantic with lots of candles and fairy lights, and a slight rustic touch. It was a contemporary wedding and the decor was all white.
