CAROLINE & MATT: REAL BRIDE STORY
I married my hubby at The Devonshire Arms Hotel & Spa, Bolton Abbey. My new married name is Savery, therefore we played around the 'sweet & savory' theme. Our strapline was "Love is nice Savery". Each table was named after a traditional boiled sweet, for example; kola cube, Yorkshire mixture, and we had a bag for every guest with one of those sweets in like a favor.
I find most clothes fit me, and that's why I'm this type of shopaholic, but knew that I wanted an A-line dress then one simple. I tried on a lot of dresses and tried on every style you can imagine. We visited six wedding gown boutiques and also to say I was overwhelmed could be an understatement. By the end of it all, I was incredibly confused and very exhausted. To my horror, I nearly wound up getting a dress that was so far taken off what I had ever imagined myself in. It was a fishtail dress that was heavily laced, sequined and strapless. Thankfully, I opted to take a little time to consider it and when I got home I realized it had not been the one for me at all.
I wound up choosing the feeltimes dresses. A backless wedding gown with a high neckline, a simple A-line having a little little bit of sparkle. I went back with my mother-in-law and sister-in-law once I'd found the main one. They all cried and couldn't believe how perfect it had been.
If I was to provide one suggestion to brides, it could be to 100% make certain you're comfortable inside your dress when you are hardly ever standing still. Ensure you can walk, dance, and hug guests.
Our big day was the perfect day, the sun's rays were shining, and everyone was through an amazing time. All the guests commented how beautiful my dress was and just how they'd never witnessed one enjoy it before, even people I've never met on social networking have commented on photos of my dress and I'm so proud to refer to it as mine.
Thank you, FeelTimes, for designing the dress which was beyond my wildest dreams!
