Bridal Crawl Recap.

In honour of our upcoming bridal crawl, I thought I'd re-post this blog from last year's First Ever Bridal Crawl!  Enjoy!

On Sunday, May 28th 2017 we hosted our first bridal crawl in Strathroy!  It was the perfect day!  We had over 100 people present and met so many wonderful brides!  

Becky Veen of Becky Veen Photography captured some memories of the day and I wanted to share them with you!

A huge thank you to all of our wonderful models!  You rocked the runway, helped us out in so many ways, and looked AMAZING!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!  A huge thank to Alison from Bombshell Hair at Incomparable Salon in Strathroy for doing the models hair.  We loved seeing the variety of hair styles and you were awesome to work with!! 

Kristy was so excited to get to wear her actual wedding gown again!  She got married last summer in this beauty!

We designed the new store to have the same feel and privacy as our old store.  Each bride will have her own bridal suite with her own fitting room and mirror built into the room.  The ultimate gown finding experience can be found at Once Upon A Time Weddings!

June Real Bride | Kayla's Dress

Naturally, as a wedding gown store, this is our favourite segment for our monthly Real Bride series and we are so excited to share Kayla's bridal store experience with you today! Kayla said yes to the dress on April 16,  2016 and tied the knot with Eric on December 31st of the same year. We absolutely adore the lace wedding gown she chose and thought it paired so perfectly for her New Years Eve wedding and venue.

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

"5."

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?

"Grandma, mom, mother-in-law and sister. :)"

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

"Not in particular no - I knew what I was looking for."

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

"A few similarities."

How was your experience at Once Upon A Time Weddings?

"It was great, Sharon was awesome and worked with me to find the best dress to fit my vision!"

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

"I actually really loved the ballgown - I didn't think I would but surprisingly loved it! I ended up going with a more fitted figure which I love but the ballgown got me all teary eyed and excited!"

Join us next Wednesday to hear all out Eric and Kayla's wedding!
