Was this the dress you initially thought you’d wear for your wedding?
Not at all! I swore I did not want satin.
Tell Me About Your Dress! Why did you choose this look?
After going to more than 7 shops and probably trying on 100 dresses (cried for 3 but still wasn’t sure)
I walked in to Ashley Renee Bridal. There, I tried on a few dresses and still with no luck my consultant Brittany said “Will you try satin?” My reply was “Sure, it’s the only thing I haven’t tried yet.”
My sister-in-law pointed to the satin dress in the window (my dress) and Brittany gathered a few others.
After a few tries i decided to put the dress back on with the veil, head piece, jewelry, etc. and I’m in the dressing room thinking/praying “God I really need a sign!”
The moment I walked out the dressing room, our wedding song was playing on the radio throughout the store and I immediately start crying! Everyone else thinks it is because of the dress but in that moment it wasn’t about the dress… all I could think about was dancing with Quaid on our wedding night! It was my sign!
How do you feel when you put on your dress?
Like a “bride.”
Why did you choose this particular bridal session location?
I chose the White Magnolia because it fit my style. I grew up on our family horse farm so i definitely wanted to incorporate that into my bridals and The White Magnolia was the perfect way for me to do that.
