Welcome to this post dedicated to Danielle's special day marrying the love of her life!
We wanted to share with you the whole of Danielle's wedding dress process and the special moments we had in playing such a big part in her wedding!
Choosing the dream dress...
We were so excited to receive the news that Danielle was going to be marrying Michael in Dubai! We found out months in advance, as this was important so we had lots of time to order in Danielle's dream dress and for all of the alterations!
Danielle regularly visits our boutique for evening dresses... but this was different! We were so excited that this time the visit was TOP SECRET and we were actually going to help her pick her wedding dress!
Danielle came with an open mind which is so important when trying on wedding dresses for the first time! She was open to trying on lots of different styles which Terri suggested. Initially we all thought Danielle was going to go for a sleek, simple and lightweight dress as we always knew Danielle was going to be getting married abroad on the beach in Dubai!
Danielle seemed to fall in love with a sleek satin dress which had a plunging neckline, a simple silhouette and an open back! We all thought "this is the one". But it is never that simple! We did love this dress on Danielle, it really showed off her small frame, accentuated her curves and less really was more!
Danielle's initial favourite 'Mori Lee 5506' However, this was replaced when Danielle fell in love with the ruffles of her wedding dress. Danielle, chose Mori Lee 8282 below. She fell in love with the mix of lace and ruffles, how long the trail was and how the structure of the dress brought out her figure! The moment Danielle came out of the fitting room everybody fell in love with the sweetheart bodice, the beaded lace and the exaggerative ruffle skirt and trail which seemed to go on forever! I think this made it clear in Danielle's mind that this was the dress she was going to be marrying the love of her life in!
We all knew that this dress was 'the one'! Even the way Danielle held herself in this dress was different. We are so happy that Danielle ended up choosing this beautiful dress as it holds such a special place in our hearts in store! We advised Danielle to wear an underskirt on the day of the wedding and fit this in with the dress to make sure that she didn't get too hot with the Dubai weather! This is definitely a must for abroad weddings!
Choosing Danielle's Evening Look...
When Danielle told us she wanted a separate look for the night time we were so excited! This meant another dress to choose! Danielle explained that she wanted something glam, elegant and sexy for the night time so she could party without worrying about wearing a heavy wedding dress! We knew exactly what dress would be perfect for Danielle!
We chose a sparkly A-line dress with a plunging neckline to show off Danielle's shape and a low back for a sexier look! We wanted to create a different look for the night time so we thought the glitter overskirt fabric was perfect to catch the light and sparkle! She looked like a movie star!
Danielle's Special Day...
With the dress packed and ready to go Danielle made her way to the airport set to travel in style to Dubai! Danielle chose to get married right outside of the Burj Al Arab Hotel, which is the most picturesque venues for a wedding! It looked like a dream! We really liked how Danielle wanted such an intimate wedding, not a lot of guests, no paparazzi, just her close friends and family!
