WFML Real Bride: Sigrid
“Just wanted to say a massive thank you for my dresses! The wedding dress was perfect and our bridesmaid dresses were stunning.” Our happy real bride Sigrid had a beautiful outdoor wedding. read on below about her experience and how she found the wedding dress of her dreams.
So please tell us, Sigrid, – with months (or even years!) of planning, did the Big Day run smoothly !?
2 years of planning and it was perfect. The wedding went incredibly smoothly and very relaxed. We did have the wonderful help of Tanya Bensley from sugared style who made everything run perfectly!
Was your wedding themed? Did you and your hubby go for a traditional feel or more contemporary style?
Our wedding was a mish mash of traditional and contemporary. The styling was very contempary but the ceremony itself was very traditional.
The theme was whimsical (in the words of one of my bridesmaids) and we definitely achieved that!
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 was pretty determined on what I wanted for a bridal gown when I first went looking. WFML was the first place I looked and I fell on love with a number of gowns – addie and Cori especially and was lucky enough that a bespoke gown could be designed for me that incorporated both.
The dress had the right amount of whimsy but still maintained a formal look. And it had pockets so that was obviously a plus!
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).
The suits colours were chosen before anything else as I knew that the navy would look stunning with the girls gold dresses.
How many dresses did you try on before you knew it was the one? 5? 10? 15+?
Argh 5 maybe. I also think I had a few on at the same time possibly.
How did your gown make you feel on your very Special Day?
I was so relaxed on the day and I think it definetely helped that the dress was so relaxed and comfortable! I honestly didn’t want to take it off!
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! I got the honour of dealing with nearly all of them – Steph, Monica and Vanessa! And they were so open to my ideas and also gave me some of their own.
Sigrid, any tips for our future Brides choosing a gown that makes the day complete?
Ask! The girls were so happy to suggest dresses. Cori was definitely not on my list and that awesome skirt ended up being a main part of my dress!
