Hot tip: Let the gown choose you! 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 Darcy. I called your head office and I was given DressSense in Sydney as the retailer. When I arrived with my sister for my scheduled appointment - 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. I arrived and was spellbound by the beauty of the dresses, I had totally forgotten which dress I was looking for. I know! Isn’t that terrible. The assistant told me to choose about 6-8 of them to try on. Two 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 Darcy. 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.
