McBride To the Tea!

We just received pictures and an adorable email from our lovely Winter Park bride, Sarah McBride. Can you believe that is her new name? How perfect! Sarah knew from the start that she wanted a tea-length wedding gown, it was just all about finding the one. Some times when a bride tries on a particular dress, everyone just knows right then and there that dress is for her. I believe the right dress is the one that makes you feel like a bride and represents your personal style. For Sarah, being traditional just wasn't her. The pictures show all and you can see this gown is truly meant to be hers! Here are the details of her dress shopping experience:

"I just wanted to pass on what a wonderful experience it was picking out my dress at Solutions. Going into dress shopping, I knew that I wanted a short dress. The store only had 1 short dress and I fell in love with it the minute I tried it on. I cannot tell you how many compliments I got on the dress, both trying it on in the store and on my wedding day. It was slightly untraditional, but totally me, which is exactly how I wanted to feel on my wedding day."

Congrats to Mrs. McBride!

Top 10 Advice on finding the DRESS!

  • Number One Rule: Be open minded! What you think reminds you of your grandmother's dress on the hanger, may in fact be the dress of your dreams.
  • Bring someone that knows your style better than their own. I'm sure the groom doesn't want to see you in something that your bestfriend would wear on her wedding day
  • DON'T PURCHASE YOUR DRESS ONLINE! You miss out on the whole experience.
  • Don't worry what the groom will think. If he loves you, he will love what you pick.
  • Have fun! Remember that you have been dreaming of this day since you were five. Don't let the decision put a cloud over your head
  • If you hate the little bow on the dress, ask the consultant if you can order it without.it. Chances are you can. Keep in mind (contrary to what the magazines always say) there might be a charge for it. It won't lower the cost of the dress.
  • Price vs. Love: If you love the dress, GO FOR IT! Don't settle for less on what your wearing for your big day. You can always take some of the budget from the centerpieces and so on. No one will know and we won't tell.
  • Research designers online and make a scrap book of styles that you like. Do keep in mind, that it may all change when you start trying on.
  • Save the group shopping for the mall. This should be a personal experience that you should only share with one or two.
  • When you find it, you find it. Don't second guess yourself or you will pick your second favorite.
