Celine said yes to the dress on May 5th 2016 and Once Upon A Time Weddings was her first stop for dress shopping! She trusted her gut and knew she had found the one! Celine also came back for her maids gowns and says this about her second experience, "My second experience was really helpful, accommodating and I felt like I trusted the staff to find what style I was looking for." We love seeing you brides more than just once! Enjoy reading all about Celine's experience saying yes to the dress below!
About how many dresses did you try on before you found 'The One'?
"Technically one, because the first dress I tried on was the one I came specifically for and ended up saying "Yes" too, but about 3-4 others afterwards."
Was the dress you bought similar to what you came in thinking you wanted?
"Yes, just like I envisioned!"
Were you expecting to purchase your dress when you came in for your appointment?
"It was still early in our engagement so I wasn't even planning on shopping yet, but OUATW uploaded a picture on their facebook page of a brand new gown that I happened to see. I was gushing with joy, and I just knew it was "The one" and so I called the next day to make an appointment for that following Saturday. I wasn't expecting to purchase that day, but my mind was so set on the dress I seen that I just needed to know for sure. They say that most brides don't end up with a dress they always vision themselves in, but I've always been the type of women to just know. Poofy, princess, bling and ball gown is what I always seen myself in, and I got it!"
Who was with you at your appointment?
"My mom, Grandma, MOH and aunt."
Did anyone have extra influence on helping you say yes to the dress?
"My Grandma. As she was helping me in it for the second time, she silently told me how I wouldn't find anything better as mine was so unique, and gorgeous."
How was your experience at Once Upon A Time Weddings?
"Amazing! I'm the type who likes personal experiences, and needs to connect with others. I enjoyed the laid back, not rushed atmosphere where I felt like the center of attention. (I waited 10 years for this day, I wanted my moment) haha!"
Is there anything else you want to tell us about your story to finding the dress?
"I knew about OUTW before being engaged from other brides going there, and their great experiences so I was always excited at the thought of getting to go there myself one day. Leading up to dress shopping, I of course had pictures saved on what styles I wanted but nothing stood out to me like seeing the one OUATW posted that one magical night."
