It’s a MILLION TIMES MORE than just a dress

There’s nothing like that feeling, on your wedding day, of wearing your once-in-a-lifetime dress and saying ‘I do’ before all of your family and friends. It’s the most incredible, dream come true kind of sensation – absolute bliss and joy and love. That’s why your wedding dress won’t be “just a dress”. It’ll be so very much more.

A wedding dress represents everything about your wedding. Look at your dress on its hanger when it’s in your home, days before your wedding and you’ll see more than just a beautiful gown. You’ll feel that shiver of excitement, anticipation and even a little overwhelm as you picture the wedding day to come. You’ll look at your wedding dress and see the love in your groom or bride’s face as you walk towards them to say your vows. That dress is about the two of you. It’s about your day and it carries all of the joy in every tiny detail.

Even before your wedding, buying your wedding dress is a shared experience you can enjoy with your best girls, with your mum or your sisters. It’s a bonding thing; a shared secret of the loveliest kind. It’s the fruition of a little girl’s journey to adulthood and to making that commitment for life and for love.

Your wedding dress represents your best you. Wearing that dream dress will feel incredible, as your confidence and excitement soar sky high. You’re already the most beautiful girl in the world in your lover’s eyes – and on your wedding day the dress helps you feel just how he or she sees you. You are beautiful.

A wedding dress is a treasure, an heirloom even – a really special token of a very specific, wonderfully romantic moment in time. If you choose to save your dress for future generations, they’ll treasure it too. You might not wear it after your day, but it will never lose that tingling magic when you see the beautiful detailing of your gown – and those memories will live on for years to come.

On no part of your wedding dress journey are you alone: the dress symbolises a coming together of family and friends, from the moment you find ‘the one’ until the last dance of your wedding night. It’s a focal point of your wedding day, with all of your loved ones complimenting you in that beautiful gown as you glow with love and joy.

Your wedding dress is a beautiful promise of a future together. That’s why the morning of your wedding is so tantalisingly exciting: as you slip into your gown you’re looking ahead to making a shared vow to love, always. Wearing this dress, you will promise yourselves to a shared life and destiny as a couple, with one future before you.

Whatever your style, let your wedding dress be your dream. Choosing your dress is an adventure and can be the most magical experience to share with your girl friends and closest family. The experience of wedding dress shopping should be a joy, a journey filled with kindness and comfort and companionship.

Your wedding dress isn’t just a dress.

it’s confidence
it’s love
it’s who you are

So go find your perfect wedding dress. Have the experience of a lifetime. And when you do find ‘the one’, fall in love with your dress, and fall hard.
