WFML Real Bride Amber and her hubby Mitch kitted out their entire bridal party from WFML. Amber combined two of our gowns to achieve her dream gown and we could not be prouder of how gorgeous everyone looked!

So Amber, please tell us – with months (or even years!) of planning, did the Big Day run smoothly?
We were engaged new years eve 2016 and found our venue in February 2017, from there the planning started. Coral Sea Resort in Airlie Beach was the first venue we looked at and it all went to plan perfectly on the day.

Was your wedding themed? Did you and your hubby go for a traditional feel or more contemporary style?
Our wedding was simple and modern with white, green and soft rose pink colours. Once we picked the dresses and venue it all fell into place from there.  

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 liked so many styles of wedding dresses, but I was aiming for a tight fit and flare and ended up with something totally different. When I got to When Freddie met Lilly the service was exceptional, we didn’t feel rushed and the focus was there to do whatever we wanted to make the dress right. The second dress I put on fit perfect, we just decided to change the top half so that there were more beads and add removal straps (which I ended up keeping on for the whole day and night), at one point I was in two dresses at once to try and see the whole look of the dress.

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?).
The guys got their suits from When Freddie met Lilly as well as the Bridesmaid dresses. The guys picked their suits themselves and matched their bow ties to the colour of the bridesmaid dresses. Again, the bridesmaid dresses weren’t what we were thinking of choosing but the girls looked stunning in them.   

How many dresses did you try on before you knew it was the one? 5? 10? 15+?
I had only been to one bridal store before When Freddie met Lilly, they were super rushed and the experience just wasn’t what I thought it would be like. I had tried on around 5 dresses from the first store, and only two at WFML.

How did your gown make you feel on your very Special Day?
On the day my gown felt like me, I felt comfortable and it was easy enough to move around in. Most importantly I felt like a Bride.   

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 at When Freddie met Lilly were beyond helpful, they made the experience special and memorable.

Any tips for our future Brides choosing a gown that makes the day complete?
Some tips for future Brides, I would have to suggest trying on as many different styles as you can, take photos in the dress and go back and take your time to think about how you want to look and feel. When I tried on my dress for the first time, I knew it was the one, it gives you a special feeling, you just know.
