Finding The Perfect Dress!
22 Jan 2011

How do you know when it’s the one?

We can always tell when our brides have found ‘the dress’ and can say ‘yes to the dress’ and make that purchase.

Here are a few tips to help you make that decision.

1. You usually don’t want to take the dress off.  You run you hands up and down the sides of the dress and stay in front of the mirror just admiring how it great it looks on you.

2. You will feel special or different in it.

3. It makes you tear up a bit. This doesn’t always have to happen but if it does consider it a definite clue. Hint, if others tear up, that is not a clue because you need to love the dress first and foremost above what others think.

4. Its the first dress you have tried on and you “just know” it’s the dress . You have a good feeling about it.
Believe it or not this happens most of the time. You should go with your gut if it does.

So if you think you have to go to 100 bridal shops to find “the one” don’t waste your time . Trying too many gowns on can dull the clues because too many choices becomes too confusing making it hard to remember what you did like in the beginning.

Keep it simple and look for those clues to help you make your choice and you will be sure to find the perfect dress for you!

Congratulations to Lacie she is one special bride who has beat the odds and survived quite a bit in her young age so we were so excited to help her find the perfect dress for her special day!

Lacie wanted a fitted ballgown dress, so we added a eight hoop slip under her gown to give her the fullness she loved!  She was married on January 2, 2010 and actually got married on the same day my daughter did so it was fun to see her at the Newport Beach Temple on her special day.  Lacie is now expecting a baby and we are now working with her sister Kendra who is getting married in December.

Kayley was married on November 7, 2009, she looks stunning in this satin dress that is wrapped at the waist and laces up the back with a full ball gown skirt and lots of lace and beading.  Her bridesmaids looked great in their royal blue dresses.

Madison was so fun to work with and we were able to design a special dress for her by making some changes to one of my gowns and adding a champagne sash which complimented this beautiful beaded lace dress.  I actually know Madison’s grandfather so it made it extra special to work with her and help her find the dress of her dreams!  She is a sweetheart and has referred so many other wonderful brides to me – which I appreciate so much.

Madison said that married life is really good. We wonder why we waited so long to get married, but we’re both enjoying it. It looks like you’re staying busy too! I’ll keep referring people to you!

What a great looking wedding party!!  I am so happy for Nancy and Tony and glad that they found each other and are starting a wonderful life together.  Nancy is very talented in many ways and with the help of a friend she made her own wedding cake and dessert for their special day!  I had a wonderful time working with her and her mom and hope they keep in touch.

Nancy said: I just wanted to thank you for helping me with my wedding attire.  I absolutely loved my dress, as did Tony…it was all we hoped for and more.  I think my veil is the prettiest I have ever seen and I didn’t take it off all night!!  Thank you so much for all your help, advice and guidance through the dress shopping process.  I thoroughly enjoyed my visits with you and would definitely recommend your talents to anyone.  You just seemed to “know” what I was looking for…what would look best on me and my experience with you was fabulous.  Anyway, we had a simply beautiful day.  The whole wedding was an absolute dream come true for us and we couldn’t be happier to finally be married.

I enjoyed working with Kristina and her mom and helping her find the “perfect dress” for her “perfect” wedding day!  She is a beautiful and looked gorgeous in her dress!!  Kristina was referred to me by the wonderful Dortignac family & I worked with both Tiffany & Mandy Dortignac in helping them find their “perfect” wedding dress too.  Kristina’s mom, Janice is a great photographer and took these beautiful pictures of Kristina.

Betsy loved this beautiful dress with the beading detail at the neckline and under the bustline with crisscross wraps on the bodice that gives this dress an amazing flattering fit! Betsy’s dad who sews costumes couldn’t believe the detail work on this dress and they both said  “the dress stole the show!”

Donna, thanks so much for making my wedding day stress free and wonderful!
