“Like many others, I had a full Pinterest board full of dream gowns for my big day. I knew I wanted a delicate, waist-hugging, and a-line style dress but I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to find what was on my Pinterest board, in real life.
When I first saw the Violette gown it was on my best friend as she searched for her own wedding dress. She tried on many of Daisy’s gowns and during her session, and I secretly had Violette as my favourite one on her. In the end, she went with Daisy’s Camellia dress but I couldn’t get Violette out of my mind! When I finally got to do my own wedding dress shopping I tried on Violette just for fun!
Who would’ve known that my gut instinct about the dress, first seen on my friend, would turn out to be my one true wedding dress all along? I love the elegant and intricate detailing in the bodice, the thin straps, and especially the tulle and paneling of the skirt. I loved the way it hugged my waist and softly framed my bust.
I felt like a true princess in this gown as I married my prince charming!”
