Must Have Wedding Dress Shopping Guide

Read an Excerpt from Our Must Have Wedding Dress Shopping Guide

Meet Eliza, who got married a few years ago and still wishes every day that she had worn a different wedding dress. Unfortunately, she’s about 3 years too late now. She still hopes her husband would be open to a marriage blessing and then she can finally wear her dream dress. Long before Steven proposed to Eliza, she knew what her dream wedding dress would look like. She was sure it would be perfect for her and she knew what every last detail would be. She wanted to look like a modern day princess. The bodice would have been reminiscent of Grace Kelly’s wedding dress bodice: lightly beaded lace, high neck but with cap sleeves rather than long sleeves. The skirt would have been a duchess satin fitted mermaid skirt, ruched from the hips to just before the knees and then full flared and pleated from the knees to the hem. The dress would have been completed with pearly buttons at the back to cover the zip and a fully pleated, lightly beaded train. Eliza ended up wearing an all over lace, off shoulder A-line dress with a puddle train. The dress was OK and perhaps, someone else’s dream dress but it was not hers. She settled for this dress because she could not find her dream dress anywhere and the bespoke bridal shops she visited were too expensive. Today, she looks at her wedding pictures with regret because she did not have her high neck lacy bodice and full mermaid skirt; two things she had wanted on her dress since she was 5. Your story does not have to be the same. Ever wondered if the wedding dress you have chosen to wear is your exact perfect dream wedding dress. It is one of the hardest decisions to make and if not made carefully, could spell disaster and regrets. If you have not bought your wedding dress already, here are some top tips and advice to give you some help and inspiration when choosing your wedding dress.

I Don’t Want a Wedding Dress Train

Everyone written about in our bridal wear woes blog posts is delighted for us to share their story with you to get a better insight into how we work and how we help solve your bridal wear problems.


 

So we once had a bride who in her own words is the ‘most tomboyish tomboy ever and lives in Jeans and Tee- Shirts’.  At her first consultation, she told me that she just hated dresses and the very idea of putting on a wedding dress was making her break out in hives. It took us a while to convince her to try on some wedding dresses and she was so pleasantly surprised when she saw how beautiful she could look in a dress if only she tried.

After she had tried on a few dresses and she had told us her likes and dislikes, we sketched the most stunning wedding dress for her and it got to the point where we were discussing her wedding dress train.   When I asked her what train length she wanted, she looked at me funny like I was speaking another language.  She said she could just not imagine the foolishness of having a wedding dress train. She felt she would look really silly and her exact words were ‘who do I think I am, Princess Diana?’  I tried to explain to her that wedding dress trains could add something special to the whole look and she has to remember that she is a bride just for that one day.  I explained to her about different lengths of trains and advised her to go for a sweep/ brush train that literally just swept the floor by about 5 or 6 inches from the dress hem. She looked at me like I was crazy and said thanks but no thanks.

Different Wedding Dress Train Lengths
A Little Education on Different Wedding Dress Train Lengths

 

I decided to create her sketch and show her the view of her wedding dress with a train and without a train just to see what she thought of the comparison.

Wedding Dress Train
Wedding Dress Sketches Showing No Train and Sweep Train

She looked at both pictures and she said to me that she felt that the sketch without the wedding dress train looked like a normal party dress or a prom dress.  She said she felt that she would be missing out on something if she went without a train and she was only hoping to do this once anyway so why not go the whole nine yards. I was really surprised at how quickly she changed her mind.  Please don’t get me wrong,  while I don’t believe that having a wedding dress train is the most important part of your wedding dress, I believe that it is indeed very important that you are entirely happy and completely over the moon with the wedding dress you have chosen.  In my role, it is imperative that I present you with all the different options available to you based on the wedding dress design you have gone for and then sit back and let you decide what works best for you.

So our bride made up her own mind but of course with our expert guidance as to what type of wedding dress train she really wanted and believe me when I say she was totally happy wearing a dress after it was created for her despite her previous disdain for anything remotely feminine. Result!

I hope you have enjoyed this week’s installation of how we resolve some bridal wear problems.  I have worked with hundreds of brides in the past 11 years and I really do love recounting these stories.

Happy wedding planning and many blessings,

Omo xx

Wedding Dress Shopping with a ‘Mahoosive’ Entourage

Everyone written about in our bridal wear woes blog posts is delighted for us to share their story with you to get a better insight into how we work and how we help solve your bridal wear problems.


Last year, we met a bride who very excitedly booked her wedding dress shopping appointment with us and when we sent her a pre-appointment email which included amongst other titbits of information, the question about how many people will be accompanying her to the consultation.  To this, she replied 15!!!. Let me repeat that – 15!!!.  Shock!, Horror! and most definitely a serious state of panic.

We tried to convince her that it may be a good idea to come with less people for an initial wedding dress consultation with us but she wasn’t having it.  Some of her aunties, cousins and bridesmaids were coming from far away and she could not deny them the pleasure of seeing her try on wedding dresses and pick the one.

So the beautiful day arrived and so did our very lovely bride and her humongous entourage.  Believe me when I say we were outnumbered very many times over and even though I have done this for eleven years, it takes a very strong person not to feel a pinch intimidated at first.  I should not have been worried though because by minute 5 into the consultation, I could understand why she wanted all of them there. I felt like a part of the family and was already laughing so hard that I could barely speak.

When our bride started to try on dresses, we quickly realised that we could have a really explosive situation on our hands as of course they all had a different idea of what should work and what shouldn’t, what suits her and what doesn’t and what they would have worn and what they would not be caught dead in. Everyone was talking at the same time and the bride could just not get a word in.  At a point, she put her hand over her ears and looked ready to cry.  We had to ask everyone to tell us one after the other what they thought of the wedding dresses she tried on.  They were all so happy to oblige when they realised how distressed she was getting and then we really began to have a lovely time.

One of her aunties thought she looked like a nun in our Victoria Dress from our Jadé Bridal 2015 collection even though our bride said she loved the long lace sleeves and soft chiffon skirt of Victoria. Her aunty wanted her to show a bit more skin.  She must have said ‘if you’ve got it, then flaunt it‘ a thousand times.  Oh, the joys of this wonderful occupation.

Her Mum said she had always envisaged her in a really full skirt wedding dress with a bit of lace as the detail and so we had her try on our Avina wedding dress from our Grace and Lace collection

Avina

Her sister loved Amira so much that she got really teary when our bride put her on. She loved Amira’s sexy slinkyness and she could just not get over the low deep V lace back. She said that would have been her ‘the one’ if only she could find a man who would be crazy enough to marry her. I laughed so much at this consultation.

Amira

We decided to have her try on Aleah as we felt that she would incorporate quite a lot of the different details that everyone seemed to agree suited our bride and I’ll tell you what, I’ve never seen someone look as happy as she did when she was in that dress. There were tears all round and for the first time since they had been with us for over an hour, there was silence.  It was amazing to behold. To just nail it, we decided to add a veil to the look and my goodness, the reaction was magic.  I heard someone say tearfully ‘you look like a bride’ and I thought, ‘that’s exactly what we want her to look like’.

Aleah

Good old Aleah! ‘She’s done it again‘, I thought. Our bride loved the alencon lace, the tulle A Line layer, the satin mermaid skirt layer, the bateau neckline, the deep V back. Everything. There was nothing about Aleah she did not love… weeellll, except for the train.  She could not imagine navigating a 40 foot train on her wedding day as she said she is very clumsy and would probably fall flat on her backside trying to unwind herself from the folds of the train.  We decided to create a shorter train for her instead and I could not believe it when I everyone’s heads bobbing in unison and complete consensus.  Have I told you how much I love this job? Another bride had found the one and we allowed her to make her changes to make it perfect for her. Result!

I hope you have enjoyed this story about one bride’s wedding dress shopping experience with us and how we worked with her big party to get the best out of everyone and ensure that we all had a really lovely time at the end of the day.

Happy wedding planning and many blessings,

Omo x

A Stunning Lace Wedding Dress for an Older Bride with Style

A beautiful lace and organza wedding dress for an older bride created for an amazing, EM Bride Jackie Clements is the feature of this week’s bride spotlight.  We are so pleased to be sharing pictures sent to us by the bride herself of her on her big day.

We met Jackie at a wedding fair on a very rainy day that turned out to be quite a great outing for us.  She was with her fiancé and they made us laugh even in the short time we spent with them.  She soon sent him away as she wanted to get down to business talking about her dress and she didn’t want him to know anything about it.   She explained to us that she had been trying to look for a perfect wedding dress for an older bride but she didn’t want something frumpy or old fashioned.  We were excited when she decided to book an appointment to come and see us in the shop there and then.

When Jackie came to see us, it was really lovely to go over the details of different wedding dresses she had tried on and she described to us her likes, dislikes, body-loves and body-hates and what she envisioned herself in.  We had a good laugh going over pictures of some dresses she had previously tried on and didn’t like very much.  We created a sketch for Jackie and she was very happy with it.

Wedding Dress for an Older Bride
Jackie’s Sketch

We explored different options of fabrics for the main part of the dress and Jackie decided that she really wanted an organza and lace A Line wedding dress with a beaded cord lace and a pleated waist detail. We added in lace cap sleeves because she said she wanted to cover the tops of her arms and a pleated satin waist band into the design.

We were excited to get cracking. Our very talented dressmakers created Jackie’s wedding dress and she came in for her first fitting.  Brides are usually very nervous at their first fitting and Jackie wasn’t any different.  She came with her daughter and we went over all the tweaks she wanted applied to just the neckline and skirt to make it perfect for her. She also decided to add a beautiful beaded appliqué  at the middle of the pleated satin waist band just for that added ‘wow’ effect. The finished dress was stunning.

Here are some pictures of Jackie on her big day

A Stunning Lace and Tulle Ball Gown Wedding Dress for EM Bride, Emma

We designed a beautiful lace and tulle ball gown wedding dress for a really fun EM Bride, Emma.  She was always such a laugh and we had a really lovely time every time she and her Mum came into the shop.

I met Emma when she came to see us after her cousin Michelle, who I knew through networking, had recommended that she give us a try. Emma came to the then very new studio to discuss her wedding dress with me and from the word go, we got on like a house on fire. She was feisty, fun and full of laughs and I just knew that we were in for a happy ride with her. She and her Mum are some of the nicest people I have ever met.

We got talking and Emma explained her ideas for her wedding dress. She told me that she loved tulle and she loved lace and if she wasn’t sure of anything else, she was very sure that she definitely wanted her wedding dress to include those two fabrics.  She showed me pictures of dresses she liked and she also told me that she had no problem whatsoever having a dress designed especially for her.  We asked Emma to try on some of our wedding dresses so that we could see what works and what doesn’t, practically.  We tried on mermaid wedding dresses, A-line wedding dresses and as soon as we tried on the Ariana wedding dress from our Grace and Lace collection, she got this big smile on her face.

Emma loved the sweetheart neckline and overlapping ruched detail of the bodice of Ariana and she also loved the fullness of the skirt.  She made it clear that she definitely wanted her dress to be created in a tulle fabric as she considered it a more whimsical and romantic fabric than duchess satin.  She also advised that she needed the touch of lace to complete the design.  We pinned some lace appliqué we had available in the design studio onto the dress to create cap sleeves and Emma loved the look of it. I got sketching and this is what I came up with for Emma.

We decided to add some more lace detail to Emma’s dress by adding some more lace appliqué to her ruched tulle bodice and also scattered on her full multi-layered tulle ball gown skirt.  She was really excited about the design and could not wait to see the finished dress.

Here are some beautiful pictures of Emma in her wedding dress in our studio and on the big day itself.  Enjoy…

Bridal Wear Woes: Bridesmaid Dresses for Different Shapes and Sizes

Everyone written about in our bridal wear woes blog posts is delighted for us to share their story with you to get a better insight into how we work and how we help solve your bridal wear problems.


Once we had a bride who told us from the very first consultation that indeed she intended to be a bridezilla :).  She said she had waited for so long to have her moment as a bride that she wasn’t going to let anyone make choices for her that she would look back on with regret.  I said to her ‘that’s definitely noble but do be gentle’.  We both laughed.

She chose her dress easily enough because again she knew exactly what she wanted but when it came to the issue of the bridesmaid dresses, we had a ‘bit of a problem‘.  How do you choose 5 bridesmaid dresses for different shapes and sizes and even different everything else?  The bridesmaids were all so different and in every way you can possibly think of; looks, personality, fashion tastes, outlook on life, that the bride did not even know where to start from.

Bridesmaids Dresses for Different Shapes and Sizes

 

Our bride had told the girls that she wanted them all in the same bridesmaid dress and the same colour and she was not changing her mind for anything or anyone.  She really put her foot down even though I had already advised that we could go with complimentary styles and colours for each girl. In spite of this warning, each girl wanted a different bridesmaid dress in a different colour and please believe me when I say every. single. one. of. them liked something different. It sounds incredible and the bride was starting to get stressed out.

We started with colour and our bride had already decided that she would choose her wedding colours after she had chosen the colour of the bridesmaid dresses.  What a mistake this turned out to be.  The bridesmaids were each asked to pick out a colour and of course, they all went for colours that were so different from one another; plus, each of them did not like the colour that the others chose. Oh My Goodness! This was a fun consultation and I could see that my bride was seeing red.  At this point, the bride decided that she didn’t want them to pick the colour any more and she would decide on what colour to go for which she said she would do when we had agreed on the dress.

So we started discussing the design of the dress and each of the girls had explained to us the style of dress that suits her and of course again, they were all very different.  The bride was starting to get quite stressed out again so we had to step in quickly and ask the girls to each pick out 2 dresses that they would like to try on. Practically all the dresses from our 2014 bridesmaid collection were picked out. There were short ones, long ones, strapless ones, one shoulder ones, lace ones chiffon ones; the whole lot!!!

When each girl had tried on her two bridesmaid dresses, we asked everyone what they liked or disliked about each dress.  We took lots of notes and from this, we observed the following trends

  • Most of the girls did not want a strapless bridesmaid dress
  • Many of them did not like satin bridesmaid dresses
  • A few of the girls did not want to show the top of their arms and armpit area. Some even cried ‘back-fat’
  • Some of them had had children and so had lumps and bumps to hide so they were very averse to anything clingy
  • A few of them hated the colour pink or any other too bright colours that made their skin look pale or sallow
  • All of them liked lace (I was shocked that there was something they all loved but our bride made it clear that she could not afford a full lace dress)

I got quite excited because I was getting an eureka moment where a dress had started to dance around in my head that just might work for these very different bridesmaids.  I was envisioning a bodice like EMBM11 with the asymmetric ruching across the bust waist and hips but with more of an A-line skirt so as not to hug the hips too tightly but created in a chiffon fabric with a lovely drape quality and soft handle like EMBM12.

This dress would deal perfectly with all of their concerns except for the covering of arms issue and I was also conscious that the one feature all the girls loved (lace) had not been incorporated into this design.  In spite of the bride’s worries, I decided to add a lacy butterfly sleeve to the design and give it a bit of a statement back so there’s something to look at if the girls turned around and which wouldn’t break the bank.Bridesmaid dresses for different shapes and sizes

Oh, how they all loved this dress.  The bride was a bit stunned when each girl said she could definitely wear this style of dress as it had addressed all their worries perfectly and of course I sat there beaming; literally like a Cheshire cat. Result!

Hope you have enjoyed this story about  how we can help you find perfect bridesmaid dresses for different shapes and sizes and I look forward to sharing the next one with you my lovelies.

Happy wedding planning and many blessings,
