Hot tip: Let the gown choose you! For my wedding gown, I really wanted a dress that had beautiful lace throughout the fabric. Pretty and elegant. I wanted this ‘emotion’ on the day of my wedding – soft, and ethereal. I had looked through pages and pages of dresses online and recalled something my mother always said to me, ‘when you see it, you will know’….and then I saw an image of Inga. I called your head office to see where I could find this stunning dress in Sydney and I was given DressSense as the retailer. When I arrived for my scheduled appointment at DressSense with my sister – I was stunned at how many dresses there were in the store. Walking into a bridal shop is like a dream for a little girl wanting to be a fairy princess. So when I arrived, spellbound by the beauty of the dresses, I had totally forgotten which dress I was looking for. I know! Isn’t that terrible. BUT….alas, we commenced our search through the racks of dresses. The assistant told me to choose about 6-8 of them to try on. 2 hours later, the final two were in front of us. So right on the dot of 5.30pm 10 days before my wedding (yes, that late!) I bought Inga. Little did I know, until I was staring at her after all the alterations had been done, that it was THE DRESS I had set out to buy in the first place!!! It’s almost like she chose me! It was all very magical, and I thank you again for the heartfelt designs that are your passion, Henry.
What they loved: Inga is perfect. I set out to wear a dress that emulated the emotion I wanted on the day. Something beautiful and ethereal. The reception was a French provincial style, and our colour palette was in ivory, cream and white. So a dress that was timeless was on my mind. Nothing too modern, nothing too plain. Having always been a lace girl, Inga suited and shaped me perfectly. Pinching me in at the waist and dropping in a divine A line, with a dramatic train was just stunning. Pinning the train up was also a feature of the dress as it shaped into an immediate bustle like in the old Victorian days. The dress was so beautiful, I had two girls ask me if they could borrow it for their wedding!
