21 Aug REAL BRIDE BLOG: Lou
Wedding date – 14.10.2017
Venue – Tithe Barn, Petersfield
My creatiques experience was a fantastic one, I’d seen lots of positive reviews and heard lots of good things so I knew it had to be one of the first stops for wedding dress shopping! We had the truly wonderful Kayleigh who I adored, she made myself and my bridal party feel instantly at ease and like she was a friend we’d known for years. Kayleigh went through some questions to see what kind of vibe I might be after, venue, theme etc and then we got to picking out dresses! The boutique is full of such sensational dresses I didn’t even know where to start, so Kayleigh pointed ya in the right direction. Kayleigh was full of advice and knowledge that really was incredibly helpful, what styles might suit me and what styles would help me feel more confident based on the various self esteem issues I had pointed out! I tried on a range of different styles to see what I liked and never one felt rushed or pressured at any point through my appointment. After trying on several and pin pointing perhaps a style I was leaning towards, Kayleigh and I pulled out a gorgeous Sincerity bridal gown .. the saying “you just know when you’ve found the one” could not have been more accurate, I had tears in my eyes before she’d even buttoned me in!
My bridal party knew as soon as Kayleigh opened the curtain apparently as my face just glowed. Kayleigh made the whole experience fun and enjoyable and I left having ordered the most beautiful dress!
Highlight of my day – I think it has to be walking down the aisle to my groom, Andy. Although the entire day was like something out of a dream. As cliche as it may sound, it was honestly like there was no one else in the entire barn, I could see no one else but my man. The butterflies hit as soon as I heard my entrance song and I’m just not sure I’ve ever felt more in love than walking towards the man I always knew I would spend the rest of my life with.
Advice for future brides – when dress shopping, go with a completely open mind and trust the amazing sales people. My dress is nothing like the dress I had pictured but after I found it I couldn’t imagine anything else. So just try everything, you never know, you might completely surprise yourself with what you fall in love with!
