How would you describe your Eleganza Experience?

My experience was amazing! It was first class service as soon as I walked through the door. All the girls in the store are incredible, especially Laura, who was my stylist. She really took the time to understand what I wanted and I ended up with the dress of my dreams. I always looked forward to going in to the store.

You had a custom dress made – what was this experience like?

The team listened when it came to choosing the gown and were very accommodating when it came to the alterations of the dress. Everyone was so patient which made the whole experience such a fun time and made me feel confident with my choice. Every appointment was just like hanging out with friends!

Tell us all about your Bespoke Eleganza Iconica dress!

It was the most beautiful dress I have ever seen! I felt like a queen when I wore it. I also purchased my veil and tiara from Eleganza which just added that WOW-factor!

What was your proposal moment like?

My husband proposed to me in Paris on a dinner boat cruise, in front of the Eiffel tower.

Incredible! And what was your wedding like?

We got married in Dubai, at the Al Qasr Hotel in Jumeriah. We then had a little get-together in Glasgow where we had the chance to have a more intimate photoshoot. We were so happy to get the best of both worlds!

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

In my opinion, this is the only store you will need to visit. I found my dream dress and it was the most fun experience. My sister also found her dream maid of honour dress here and we both just felt like queens on the big day.
