Eleganza Real Bride Magen Wearing Rosa Clara

How would you describe your Eleganza Experience?

The experience at Eleganza was away and above any other shop I tried. The store is gorgeous inside! It feels exclusive but not snobby, and the ladies are so friendly and welcoming. You and your family and friends are treated like royalty. This boutique knows not only how exciting, but also how stressful wedding dress shopping can be and they took away all the worry and made the whole experience truly joyful, from the first time you try a dress to the final fitting.

Tell us all about your Rosa Clara dress!

My dress was ‘Paris’ from the 2018 Rosa Clara collection. I bought it at a trunk show at Eleganza Sposa on the same day I tried it on for the first time.
That day I tried many dresses of my own choosing, all of which were gorgeous but I felt like I was dressing up as a bride; it didn’t feel right. Then the stylist asked if I would try a dress she thought I’d like, it was a bit different and in fact no one had tried it at all during the trunk show. It was a beautiful soft very fine lace dress with a Bardot neck line. It was like a work of art and as soon as I put it on I knew that it was my dress. I hadn’t really believed I would have a “the one” dress moment, but it really did happen!

On my wedding day I had endless comments on how gorgeous and beautifully different the dress was, and wearing it I felt really truly beautiful and, more importantly, just like myself.

What was your inspiration for your wedding? 

I joked with our florist that the inspiration for the wedding was Beauty and the Beast meets Wuthering Heights. There was lots of candlelight, a rich jewel palette and guests wore faux fur and bright rich winter colours.
