The Perfect Dress
For her Colorado wedding, Sarah was determined to find the perfect dress. After working hard at the gym for her big day, she knew she wanted to walk down the aisle in something that would be flattering.
When Sarah arrived at her first (and only!) Denver bridal shop, The Bridal Collection, she wasn’t sure what kind of silhouette to look for. However, once her stylist pulled a few dresses that fit her vision, everything started to fall into place. The moment she tried on Stella York style 6500, she knew it was “The One”! Although it was unlike the dress she had always pictured herself wearing, there was no doubt that this was her dress. Once she added a gorgeous cathedral veil, she felt like a true bride.
The most important thing to consider when choosing a dress is how it makes you feel. Choosing a wedding gown is the right time to listen to your heart and your feelings. Once you’ve found the dress that makes you feel like the beautiful bride you are, continuing to try on dresses can cause confusion and frustration. Sarah knew this gown was the right choice, so there was no need to make another stop. The search for the dream wedding dress was complete, and it was time to celebrate!
First Look Moments
A bride’s wedding day holds so many special moments. Between spending the day with your favorite people, feeling like your most beautiful self, and promising your life to the person you love most, it’s nearly impossible to choose a favorite part of the big day.
When she looks back on the best day of her life, Sarah remembers how special her first looks were with her dad and husband-to-be. After being pampered with hair and makeup and slipping into her stunning Stella York wedding dress, she could hardly wait to show off her bridal look to the two most important men in her life.
Whether you choose to do a first look or wait until you’re walking down the aisle, the moment you lock eyes with the love of your life results in a feeling you will never forget. Many brides say that during that exact moment, all of their nerves melted away. All at once, the stress, late nights, deadlines, and frustrations of planning a wedding become completely worth it. If you’re reading this while in the thick of planning, take heart!
