WFML-Brides: Stephanie

Stephanie picked her gown from When Freddie met Lilly to feel sexy, elegant and oh so beautiful on her big day marrying now hubby Jake. Read about her experience with the girls below.

So please tell us – with months (or even years!) of planning, did the Big Day run smoothly !?
There was about 12-14 months or planning and everything went well without a hitch!

Was your wedding themed? Did you and your hubby go for a traditional feel or more contemporary style?
The style for the wedding was boho luxe. Romantic and contemporary with some traditional touches.

WFML Real Brides Stephanie (3)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?
Vanessa made my dream dress come to life! I had always dreamt of a dress just like it and was truly shocked when I got to try on the Gemma gown. It was love at first sight and I knew that was the one.

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).
Yes, Jake picked his suit with a little guidance on fit and colour from me. The groomsmen got suits made in Thailand whilst on their bucks party. The suits are royal blue with a light blue small checked shirt, with a beige linen bow tie. The boys looked very hipster with soft brown shoes and complimented the feminine boho vibe well.

WFML Real Brides Stephanie (4)How many dresses did you try on before you knew it was the one? 5? 10? 15+?
Around 6-8 dresses and my chosen gown Gemma was the 5th or 6th dress I tried on! WFML was the first place I visited and once I tried on Gemma, I knew I wouldn’t be happier in any other dress.

How did your gown make you feel on your very Special Day?
I felt sexy, beautiful and elegant. WFML truly had gowns that were different from typical bridal stores and it was exactly what I was looking for. Fitted all the way down, minimal train, backless with a thin cross back tie and appliqué flowers in lace. It was bespoke to my style and it was just heaven to wear. The look on my husbands face when he saw me in the gown, walking down the aisle, I will never forget. He was so happy I went for something that complimented me and was not just another cupcake dress. And also I think he liked the fact that he could see my curves in a figure hugging dress! 😉

WFML Real Brides Stephanie (2Were the girls from When Freddie met Lilly helpful in what can be quite a busy and time consuming process when find The Dress?
The girls were more than helpful and incredibly understanding in the fitting and alterations process. My interests were always a top priority and any changes in the design process were solely focused on what I wanted for my big day. You truly feel special with the WFML team.

Any tips for our future Brides choosing a gown that makes the day complete?
Go with your heart and choose a gown that is true to your personality and style. Most brides say “I want look like a princess” and I was never one to want that “princess” vibe. All i wanted was to feel beautiful and sexy and I definitely got that with my Gemma gown. Yes it is a big day but it doesn’t mean you have to change your look, go over the top or blow your budget. Picking something that suits your style will speak more on the day and your guests will love it too!
