Eleganza Real Bride Rona Wearing Suzanne Neville

How would you describe your Eleganza Experience?

I had a wonderful experience, from the moment I walked through the door I was made to feel special. Everyone in your store is friendly and welcoming and nothing was too much to ask! I was also really impressed with all communications whilst waiting for my dress to arrive.

Lisa helped me find my dress – she was so friendly and instantly made me feel at ease. When I came to Eleganza I had an idea of what kind of dress I wanted and ended up choosing a dress which was the opposite of what I had imagined. Lisa knew what style and shape of dresses would suit me an flatter my figure. She suggested I try on the Suzanne Neville dress at the end of the appointment and I’m so glad she did. It was the first dress that I tried on that made me feel like a ‘bride’ and I knew almost instantly it was the one. This wouldn’t have been possible without Lisa!

When I tried on this dress for the first time I felt like it was made for me! It suited my shape and style so perfectly. It is simple yet elegant and that’s what makes it so beautiful.

Tell us more about your big day!

We got married on 19 May 2018 – the same day as the royal wedding!! We were so lucky with the weather; the sun shone for us all day. We got married at Melrose Parish Church in the Borders. The ceremony was one of our favourite parts of the day.

We then went on to Wedderburn Castle where we had the drinks reception on the lawn. The Wedding Breakfast and dance were held in the barns which was a more relaxed atmosphere!! We had the most wonderful day and wish we could do it all over again!!

What was the most memorable moment of your wedding day?

Walking down the aisle towards Gregor and seeing all my family and friends.

Do you have a favourite picture from your wedding day?

I can’t pick!! I love them all!

Do you have any advice for future brides visiting Eleganza Sposa?

Have an open mind and be willing to take advice and recommendations from the staff, they know the dress collection well and how different dresses will suit different people!

I honestly had the most wonderful experience at Eleganza – from the initial consultation to picking up the dress – I cannot thank you enough. A special thanks to Lisa who was able to encourage me to consider looking at different styles of dresses and helped me pick my dream dress!
