Dress Stories is all about a bride’s relationship with her special wedding outfit, from searching for it to finding it, and how it made her feel on the day.
Michaela put the research in with a trip to the Scottish Wedding Show to acquaint herself with designers and all the latest trends.
AND THE BRIDE WORE… a stunning figure-hugging lace Enzoani Journey dress, teamed with a cathedral length veil.
How did you feel about dress shopping?
I felt nervous about shopping for my wedding dress as it is a big deal and I wanted to make sure that I had found The One!
I attended the Scottish Wedding Show to see what styles were in at that time and different designers.
I knew what style I wanted before I started looking.
I tried on similar styles before finding my dress – though I did try on a big princess dress just to see what it felt like and whether I suited it.
How was your shopping experience and who went with you?
My shopping experience was perfect, though I was very nervous.
My mum and my mother in law came with me for wedding dress shopping – and were there when I said yes to the dress.
What was your dress like and why did you choose it?
My dress was fitted with a long train.
It was lace and had thin straps which were diamante.
How did you accessorise your dress?
I accessorised my dress with long earrings which were like a leaf effect and my shoes were also from Opus Couture.
