Real Bride: Eileen 

Dress Chosen: Essense of Australia #D2639

Eileen was searching for a gown that would make her feel truly beautiful, but a string of health problems shook her confidence before she began the dress shopping experience. “I thought I’d like to wear a mermaid dress with lace, but when it came to trying on different styles, the mermaid fit did not look flattering on me. Following some health issues, I gained almost 20 pounds and could no longer fit into my normal size 2 dress styles. I focused my search on A-line gowns and found something with simplistic elegance that made me look relaxed and at ease! The fabric was exquisite. #D2639 was the perfect combination of sexy and cute and…it has pockets!”

Instead, I showed up in a classic A-line that nobody expected! Being able to surprise my groom as well as our guests was amazing. The dress made me feel like a bride and was comfortable enough to dance all night!”

For Real Bride Shelby, comfort was at the top of her priorities in finding the perfect wedding dress. “I wanted to feel my most comfortable and beautiful in my own skin. I knew I wanted an A-line style. When I put on #6603, the dress fit like a glove! My alterations were very minimal and I just felt like my dress was made for me – it’s the best feeling in the world!”

When Real Bride Christine began her dress shopping experience, she was torn between a mermaid gown and an A-line silhouette. If you’re avoiding “poof” at all costs but still want the drama of a full skirt, A-line is your go-to style! “After trying on what felt like hundreds of dresses, I found Style #6243 in the most perfect pink shade! I did not want a ballgown, but this A-line made me feel like a princess and I was won over! I couldn’t be happier with how I felt and looked on my wedding day.”
