Eleganza Real Bride Karen Wearing Essense of Australia

How would you describe your Eleganza Experience?

I had an appointment with Lisa and it was by far the best wedding dress shopping experience I had. I wasn’t looking forward to my appointment because I had attended a few bad ones beforehand.
Lisa was truly amazing at helping me find my perfect dress.

Would you like to share with us your proposal moment?

My husband proposed to me on  the 16th of December 2016. My ring was in an advent truck which I fill with treats for my kids. Unknown to me that day that the biggest treat of all was inside.

Tell us all about your Essense of Australia dress!

It fitted perfectly and I knew from the minute that I put it on that I loved it.

 

Did you follow a specific theme or colour palette for your wedding?

Our Wedding was the last weekend in October so we went with an autumn vibe but with the addition of golds, pinks and white to bring it all together.

Tell us more about your Big Day!

It was the perfect autumnal day; a cold, crisp, dry and bright day and consequently we managed to get all of our photos outside.
And we had such a fantastic day. I would love to go back and do it all again. A few family members couldn’t make it through different circumstances and they we very much missed but all in attendance still had a magical day.
And I laughed from start to finished!


What was the most memorable moment for you?

I would have to say my usher accidentally setting the fire alarm off and me standing outside in my jammies and robe!

Do you have a favourite picture from your wedding day? Why is this image so special to you?

I loved the back of my dress so I love the following photo!

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

I would recommend that future brides book Eleganza as their first shop. They will 100% not disappoint! The stylists will make you feel great and do all they can to help you find the dress.
Also I had a strict budget and I still managed to buy my dream dress.
