WFML Real Brides: Vanessa
For Vanessa’s simple and rustic wedding setup, she involved all of her friends and family to create her dream day. Read about her experience finding the perfect gown at When Freddie met Lilly below.
Was your wedding themed? Did you and your hubby go for a traditional feel or more contemporary style?
The wedding wasn’t really themed, I just wanted a rustic feel and it was a contemporary style wedding (cocktail, garden with all the traditional aspects to a wedding – bouquet toss, garter toss, cake sitting, first dance etc.)
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?
My dress fit into my theme by not being a white, big hooped with a long train type of dress, but rather a elegant, lace, simple but beautiful dress that made the wedding feel more rustic and that was much more my style. I knew I wanted a simple but beautiful dress, with no train and a hint of colour in it and nothing too mainstream. But I didn’t know exactly the dress I wanted until I tried it on and I only needed to try the dresses at WFML to pick my wedding dress. I didn’t need to look anywhere else.
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).
My husband didn’t choose his suit, I chose for him with the help of his best man. His suit definitely complimented my gown.
How many dresses did you try on before you knew it was the one? 5? 10? 15+?
I tried 4 (i think) at WFML and with the help of my maid of honour and my mum, we chose my gown after one appointment.
How did your gown make you feel on your very Special Day?
It made me feel very beautiful and elegant and the most amazing I have ever felt.
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 WFML were amazing and so helpful, especially Vanessa. Vanessa was so lovely and helpful and accommodating. She really made the whole process that much easier.
Any tips for our future Brides choosing a gown that makes the day complete?
My only tip would be to be true to yourself and get the gown that makes you feel beautiful and special and don’t be afraid to tell the shop assistants/dress makers what you want.
