1) Your dream dress will very rarely be the dress that you fell in love with online or on the rail, so keep an open mind.
2) Always choose the dress that makes you feel like a million dollars- go with your heart and you won’t be disappointed!
3) Look for a reputable bridal shop that offers a large selection of gowns, veils, accessories and also has an alterations department.

“My favourite wedding gown from this seasons collection is most definitely 8776! The fabrics that have been used in this dress are absolutely exquisite- the two layers of sequin and lace create a stunning combination. It’s very chic and elegant- perfect for any bride looking for the Hollywood Red Carpet look!”
