“I was really open to wedding dress styles as i have never tried a wedding dress on before. I didn’t want anyone but both mum’s to see or know what my dress looked like so it was a surprise for everyone on our wedding day. I went to 1 wedding shop in Caversham called Something Old Something New. This was going to be my starting shopping as they had a sale on and sold sample dresses so i thought i might find a bargain here and if not could go to a normal wedding shop to order a dress. On the day it was both mum’s and I who went to the dress shop. the staff were amazing and i was excited to try dresses on. we pulled 8 dresses to try that were a mixture of shapes and colours, however the first one i picked i really liked as it was champagne colour and looked unusual. I tried the champagne dress on first and had a huge smile on my face, i loved it straight away! I continued to try on the rest of the dresses and the mum’s liked the champagne dress and a similar dress in white. They asked me which i liked and if any were “the one” and i said the champagne dress which was the first one i found and tried on! My dress was A line champagne colour with lace on the top and an open back.
On my wedding day i felt amazing, the dress fitted like a glove and was so comfortable. i was excited for my bridesmaids to see it and they all loved it. everyone complimented me on the dress and how well it suited me. even in the snow my dress was great to wear and i didn’t care how cold i would get i wanted all my photos to see the beauty of the dress.”
