My sister and I got engaged within a week of each other and whereas she jumped into wedding planning with two feet, I felt quite overwhelmed by the prospect! We both knew that our first place to go wedding dress shopping would be in White Bride as we have family in Narberth and would often walk pass Sally's shop solely to admire the beautiful dresses in the window.
My sister's enthusiasm meant that my first visit to White Bride was to search for her perfect dress (which she found with the help of the lovely Jess!) Whilst she was trying on dresses I timidly looked around at all of the other gorgeous dresses on display and, with the help of Jess' calming attitude, began to breathe a sigh of relief and booked myself in for an appointment a couple of weeks later.
My first appointment with Sally at White Bride was one of the best experiences of my life! I went into the shop full of nerves but within minutes had forgotten all of them and was embracing the experience. With Sally's expertise I was able to decide on the style of dress that would suit my body shape, my personality and my wedding day. I narrowed it down to a few different dresses and went away feeling very excited.
A few weeks later I went back with my sister and noticed one of the dresses I had tried on was on a model in the shop but had a belt attached to it that had been added by Sally. I immediately knew that this was the dress I wanted to wear for my special day and once again booked another appointment to go and see Sally. This time I couldn't wait to go and turned up very excited. I knew the dress I wanted and as soon as I put it on I knew that this was 'The One'. I choose a Charlotte Balbier dress and every part of it was completely perfect. Sally was very patient and creative in helping me to decide the detail to go on the waistline of the dress and she found the perfect accompaniment to my dress.
Sally also spent a long time helping me to decide on a veil, shoes and accessories to help finish off my beautiful dress. In all of my visits to the shop, I never felt like I was being rushed and I was always made to feel like the most important and special person in the world.
Every time I put my dress on I felt like a complete princess and nothing was too much trouble. The dress fitted me perfectly and helped make my wedding day extra special as I knew that it was perfect for me and didn't have to think about it at all.
I will be forever grateful to Sally for helping a terrified girl find the dress of her dreams and would recommend White Bride to anybody!
