How did you find your Creatiques Experience? From the get go just brilliant. I had already been to London and Winchester dress shopping and had been really disappointed, a lot of the stores seemed to stock the same styles and I was shocked at the service, ranging from distant to rather rude, I struggled to get that “personal touch” as soon as I stepped foot in creatiques it was different, all the staff were warm and welcoming, they seemed just as exciting about my sending nuptials as I was and they took the time to understand the kind of wedding I wanted and what dress would be suitable. I didn’t really have a style in mind so relied on their expertise and so glad I did. Robert recommended my dress and at first glimpse on the screen I wasn’t sure, it was strapless and a bodice but he reassured me it would look great on me and suit my share and ordered it in to try on. so glad he did, as soon as I tried it on it was “the one” and everyone commented how different it was on the day, perfectly suited to a hot wedding abroad.

Favourite Moment whilst planning your big day? Trying on the dress Robert ordered and knowing I had found it!!

Highlight of your big day? Having our 3 month old Son share it with us, he was our guest of honour.

If you were to re-do the whole day, would you do anything differently? I would have had a small gathering back home when we got back.

 Top tips for future brides? Take advice from the experts; that trumpet style dress may look great in a magazine but does it really suit your shape? Enjoy the day, don’t stress, you’ve done everything you can, the day will be over in a blink so relax and enjoy!
