December Real Bride | Brianne's Dress

Brianne said yes to the dress on October 4th of 2015. Once Upon A Time Weddings was her first dress shopping experience but she didn't buy until her second visit,  We love getting to share that every wedding gown shopping experience is unique but just as perfect. We hope you enjoy reading all about Brianne's experience today!


Did you try on dresses before coming to OUTW?


About how many dresses did you try on before you found 'The One'?

"I tried on 5 dresses at OUTW the first time I visited and then tried on 5 at Davids Bridal before returning to OUTW and trying on the one!"

Were you expecting to purchase your dress when you came in for your appointment?

"Yes, I was determined to find my dress!"

Who was with you at your appointment?

"My mom - my sister and my best friend."

Did anyone have extra influence on helping you say yes to the dress?

"Yes! Sharon was absolutely amazing to work with!"

Was the dress you bought similar to what you came in thinking you wanted?

"Nothing at all like I had in mind, this dress totally exceeded my vision!"

How was your experience at Once Upon A Time Weddings?

"The first time I went to OUTW I had absolutely no idea what I wanted - poor Sharon started asking me questions and I had no answers except White/Ivory - I wanted nothing to do with crazy colors - My first visit we focused on trying on different silhouttes and narrowing down the options - My mom fell in love with a Lace A-Line dress and Erin even called the designer to ask if it could come in covered in sparkles and they agreed - but I wasn't sold and despite my moms pestering I left empty handed. A few weeks later we went to Davids Bridal and I tried on a few dresses and really liked a fit and flare ivory dress with beading and bling covering the whole thing (it was very heavy on the hanger) - we called OUTW and said we'd love to come back before I decided on a dress and we went in the same day. I showed Sharon the dress I had liked and she started pulling a Blush Lace Dress off a maniquin (my sister and I were giving each other the 'she has no idea what shes doing' look) and the second I was in the dress I couldnt stop smiling and I didnt want to take it off - my loved ones knew then that it was the one! I also went back in a few other times to discuss accessories (jewellery and veil) with Erin and even fell in love with a belt I added to the dress."
