WFML Real Bride: Paige
Our Real Bride Paige had a wonderful wedding in navy blue, copper and white. Read below how she found the dress of her dreams and what tips she has for future brides.
So please tell us – with months (or even years!) of planning, did the Big Day run smoothly!?
A few little hiccups the day before my makeup artist pulling out due to sickness but other than that it was perfect!
Was your wedding themed? Did you and your hubby go for a traditional feel or more contemporary style?
It wasn’t really themed we went with a colour scheme of navy blue copper and white. I kind of just through ideas together and hoped for the best!
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?
It just did I picked the dress before I picked anything else and as I said before whatever I liked I just decided on and hoped it would all fit together haha! I wasn’t sure what style I wanted I just knew nothing to puffy so to speak. I had a love for an Elie saab dress I wasn’t sure of the name of the dress and was sure it was nowhere within my budget. So off I went to the bridal expo in Brisbane for a bit of inspiration and watched the fashion show where the When Freddie met Lilly collection was being showed! I saw the Lola dress and fell in love, I arranged to have a fitting and that was it! I discussed with the team about how I adored the skirt in the elie saab vintage style dress straight away the girls knew the the dress I was talking about and showed me their sparrow skirt which was quite similar! We put the lola dress with the sparrow skirt together and I was amazed!!! IT WAS PERFECT.
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).
He got his suit two days before our wedding!!!!!!!!!! I had no real idea what they looked like was just hoping they weren’t the Hawaiian suits from lowes as he mentioned once that was what he was wearing and honestly I wouldn’t put it past him! But he did a fantastic job we complimented each other. He and the groomsmen wore a charcoal grey with a white shirt and suspenders no tie but a bow tie for the groom!
How many dresses did you try on before you knew it was the one? 5? 10? 15+?
Firstly I tried on the Lola dress and just new that’s what I wanted! Then I tried two others and put back on the Lola dress. When you know you know!
How did your gown make you feel on your very Special Day?
I’m not the girliest of girls I think I maybe own 2 dresses in my whole wardrobe but my wedding dress was amazing I would wear it to shops if I didn’t look the crazy 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?
They were amazing they completely understood me and made me feel comfortable.
Any tips for our future Brides choosing a gown that makes the day complete?
Listen to your gut instinct, it’s your day you wear what you want! If you want to wear something bright pink you go ahead and wear that, the day goes so quickly make it count.
