WFML Real Bride: Amanda
Amanda created a bespoke whimsical blue design for her Big Day. Read about how When Freddie met Lilly helped her customise styles to create the perfect dress.
So Amanda, please tell us – with months (or even years!) of planning, did the Big Day run smoothly!?
We planned our wedding over about 12 months, in the end it went so smooth with no major hiccups 😁
Was your wedding themed? Did you and your hubby go for a traditional feel or more contemporary style?
We wanted a more contemporary relaxed vibe that flowed somewhat traditionally . Our theme was not specific. We just wanted it be relaxed and reflect us and things we like. We tried to add a classic yet whimsical touch to everything.
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 knew I wanted a coloured dress…not white or ivory. Not just for the theme but it just didn’t feel right me wearing a traditional looking dress. WFML was the only place that gave me a broard range of styles and colors. Vanessa help mold my perfect dress to me based on her beautiful designs and what i felt comfortable in.
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).
Ben chose the suits. He had guidelines and went shopping with the boys . they chose something a little different from discussed but it all still tied in really well. He was determined to get a suit in that color and I think he looked just as good as I did 😊
How many dresses did you try on before you knew it was the one? 5? 10? 15+?
I tried on about 10+ and had alot of trouble narrowing them down but they were all different styles but similar traditional colours…none had the wow factor that mine chosen dress had.
How did your gown make you feel on your very Special Day?
Comfortable. Beautiful. Sexy. Unique. Happy!
Were 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 great and super helpful 😊
Any tips for our future Brides choosing a gown that makes the day complete?
Dont try on too many dresses 😂. follow what suit your body shape, and is the color you actually feel YOU in..and feel comfortable and confident in your decision.
