WFML-Bride: Penny

Penny works at one of our favourite Brisbane Wedding Venues – The Landing at Dockside! So when we found our about her surprise baby shower/engagement party/wedding we couldn’t help but dress our girl in only the most stunning gown. It had to be Dawson! Check out her experience below.

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

Planning the event in under 2 months was a breeze!  We entrusted the services of highly recommended suppliers and was able to completely enjoy the experience.  The day ran perfectly- we wouldn’t change a thing!

Was your wedding themed? Did you and your hubby go for a traditional feel or more contemporary style?

Our wedding doubled up as our Baby Shower and took many guests by surprise when we turned the event midway through into our Wedding Ceremony!  We always loved the idea of doing things a bit unconventional and witnessing the emotion and love in the room was definitely the highlight of the day!  We chose a colour palate of deep plums, gold and blush pink and let the styling do the talking.  We knew we wanted the event to be based around great food, drinks, dancing and most of all a big celebration!

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 have followed WFML on social media for years and have seen so many brides in their beautiful gowns and I knew my dress would always be designed by Vanessa.  I went in with an open mind and colour palate and the dress I fell in love with was the first I tried on!  Vanessa was so helpful in recommending styles that would suit my growing baby bump – her expertise was invaluable. 

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 hehe).

Martin chose to wear dark navy chinos and a white button up which ended up tieing in perfectly with the dress!  Wasn’t originally planned this way but all ended up falling into place.

How many dresses did you try on before you knew it was the one? 5? 10? 15+?

The Dawson gown was actually the first dress to catch my eye and first dress to try on!  I ended up trying maybe 4 gowns on total but kept coming back to the first. 🙂

How did your gown make you feel on your very Special Day?

The gown was the talking point of the night- I am still receiving compliments to this day!  It was so flattering with my growing bump and made me feel so special and comfortable throughout the night.  The colouring, the beautiful flowers sewn into the bodice and the way the tuile fell all made me feel so beautiful and suited the event perfectly.

Were the girls from When Freddie met Lilly helpful in what can be quite a busy and time consuming process when find The Dress?

Vanessa & Stephanie were so helpful in not only fitting in my appointment very last minute but also ensuring the dress arrived in time.  I had no reservations whatsoever that all would fall into place perfectly!

Any tips for our future Brides choosing a gown that makes the day complete?

Go in with an open mind and let the team make suggestions – they know what they are talking about!  Colours and designs you may not have considered or seen before might end up being the ones you love the most!
