It was a day filled with happiness, laughter and lots of love!
I had an excellent experience with Bridal and Formal! I’ve grown up knowing these ladies who work here as my mom has been a wedding seamstress in Cincinnati for many years and has worked with B&F a lot. So I think it was a special day for both parties seeing me pick my dress. It was just my mom and I. I always wanted it to be that way because I’ve grown up watching her alter wedding gowns and this would be the unique gown she would ever work on. We made it a total girls day with champagne and took our time looking for dresses. But with only the second dress I knew it was the one. I just wanted to keep trying more on to see if something would beat it. As I decided more on, I knew nothing would. I chose a gorgeous Marissa gown. What I loved most was the lace detailing and sweetheart neckline. It also allowed me to wear a big tulle Monique Lhuillier skirt that I purchased at B&F as well! I always dreamed of wearing that for the ceremony and having a more fitted look for the reception. And I got my exact vision! I couldn’t have loved my bridal look more. My beautiful bridesmaids all got their dresses from B&F as well- I loved their dresses, and we had a lot of fun picking them out together! And to top it off, my mom made my veil. It was a split cathedral length veil, and it was the perfect touch to my dress. I felt so beautiful and will cherish it forever!
Our wedding day was filled with happiness, laughter and lots of love!
We had such a fun day from start to finish. Putting on my dress was one of the most exciting moments because I had tried it on so many times and the big day had finally come! I got so many compliments on it, and Alex loved that the skirt came off after the ceremony. I felt so beautiful! It was a perfect dress to dance the night away with everyone I love, especially my new husband!
