WFML Formal Girl LauraLaura was able to grasp the opportunity of designing a bespoke gown at When Freddie met Lilly for her Formal. After trying on countless gowns, Laura knew that what she really needed was to create something entirely her own! Read about her experience at WFML below.

So please tell us – with months of planning, did the formal run smoothly!?
My formal day went very smoothly. Perfect weather on the day (not too hot and no afternoon storms).  I started at lunchtime with hair and make up and I was fully dressed and ready by 3pm.

I was lucky enough to have pre-formal photos with my school friends at a gorgeous house which  was the perfect backdrop.

wfml-bride Mary and Michael 2016Mary Campbell married her sweetheart Michael in her dream dress from When Freddie met Lilly. She says: “I got so many compliments on the day and I felt so special and beautiful in it.  A special thanks to Monica for helping to make it all happen – you are a star!!”

So please tell us – with months (or even years!) of planning, did the Big Day run smoothly!?
It was 9 months between engagement and the wedding day.  It all went very smoothly.  We went for a pretty simple ceremony and reception and I think that meant less could go wrong!

Was your wedding themed? Did you and your hubby go for a traditional feel or more contemporary style?
There wasn’t a “theme”, but we went with whites and greens with a hint of gold to set-off the industrial feel of the Brisbane Powerhouse. Simple, yet romantic and timeless.

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?
I went into dress fittings with an open mind!  From attending friends’ dress fittings I knew that something that looked amazing in the picture and on someone else doesn’t mean it was made for you.  I tried on  poofy, simple, blingy and everything in between.  The WFML girls let me try on whatever I wanted which made it easier to set aside those that did and didn’t work.  I went for simple elegance with a V-neck and open back lace gown.  I added a little bling on the shoulders, as I wanted that extra special little touch.  It went perfectly with the overall look and feel of our day.

Yes it did run smoothly it was a beautiful day from start to finish.

How did The Dress fit into your theme? Did you have an idea of which style you wanted before beginning the search for your Formal Gown? And did this change much after you saw the girls at WFML?
I had no idea what to expect or what I wanted from our visit. I didn’t think I would find anything that looked good. I had seen a dress that I liked and was going to see about getting it made. Once I tried this gown on I knew straight away that was it. I loved it!!

So please tell us – with months (or even years!) of planning, did the Big Day run smoothly !?
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.  

olivia-maxi-gown-wfml-bridal-partyNow that you have finally said yes to the man of your dreams, it’s time to get down to planning the wedding of your dreams. 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.
