  1. Your dress sets the tone for the whole wedding, whether it’s a grand ballroom affair or chilled beach event. So consider your location, your style and tone of event, you want you dress to highlight it all perfectly.

  4. But be open because we can assure you as soon as you start really looking you will find new styles that suit you better or fall in love with something you never imagined!
  5. Brace yourself for bridal gown size, you will not appear as the same size you norally do so please please do not be put off. Bridal gowns come up smaller so sizing always needs to be increased
