Say Yes To The Dress

November Real Bride | Erin's Dress

On November 11, 2016, Erin found her gown & said yes to the dress!  Today she dishes all the details of that experience! She'll also share how she came back a second time to say yes to her maids and flower girl dresses too! We loved seeing all of the dresses she choose come together on her wedding day!

Did you try on dresses before coming to OUTW?

"No."

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

"The one I bought was actually the very first dress I tried on! I put on a few different styles, so maybe 6, but I always went back to that first one."

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

"I was ready to buy, but also prepared not to get down on the experience if I didn't find my perfect dress."

Who was with you at your appointment?

"My parents: Jerry & D.Kathy Hendrikx and my sisters: Emily and Meghan Hendrikx."

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

"I wouldn't say anyone had extra influence, I just wanted everyone to love what I said yes to."

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

"I didn't really know what I wanted."

What did your (now) husband think of your dress?

"He thought it was stunning. 'I couldn't have picked a better dress! It really made my wife glow.'"

How was your experience at Once Upon A Time Weddings?

"It was perfect! We had our own space, I didn't feel like they were pulling dresses for 10 other people. It was very personal, everything I said was taken into account with the next dress that was pulled. My family and I all agreed it was such a great day."

How was your second experience here with us?

"The second experience was really good! All of the bridesmaids were there, they got to try on different styles and show them off at the same time. We were the only people in the store with that appointment. Again, very personal!"

Is there anything else you want to tell us about your story to finding the dress?

"I want to compliment the staff, Erin was so helpful. Everyone made sure things ran smoothly. I would definitely recommend Once Upon A Time Weddings - a space that takes the time to help you find your dream dress, friendly staff...just a great experience to have had."

October Real Bride | Jordan's Dress

Jordan said yes to the dress on October 4th, 2016 with her mom! She had actually shopped once at our store before and fell in love her dress but, she wanted to come back with her mom before saying yes! She also made a custom change when she decided to add the beading in the top of the dress extend throughout the whole gown. We love Jordan's unique story and can't wait for you to read it!

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

"I actually wasn't even dress shopping when I visited. It was a spur of the moment decision driving by on the 402 and I decided to stop and see what they had since a friend recommended it to me."

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

"It had a few similarities."
We love this shot of the subtle sparkle in her dress that she extended all the way to the bottom!

How was your experience at Once Upon A Time Weddings?

"It was a great experience. I loved how laid back and comfortable they made me feel. There was no pressure from them to purchase a dress and that made it a lot easier to make a decision. I also loved how easy it was to make changes to the dress when ordering - I chose a different colour and added extra beading throughout the dress. Having the flexibility to make it your own is special."

Is there anything else you want to tell us about your story to finding the dress?

"I had to visit twice because my mother-in-law was with me the first time when I found the dress and I couldn't make a decision without my mom seeing it first. After I went home I couldn't stop thinking about the dress, which was different from all the other dresses I had tried on so before. I knew this one was going to be the one. I ended up coming back a few days later with my mom and we said yes to the dress on my second visit."
