There are not enough good things I could say about Luv Bridal! Dress shopping was one of the wedding planning tasks I was most looking forward to. I had a specific vision of what I wanted to wear that day - a mix between something classic, timeliness, and romantic with a modern flare - and had been hunting for just the right dress all over social media.
Before coming to Luv Bridal, my mom and I had a dress shopping day at another bridal boutique and the experience was less than what we expected. All of the dresses were pretty, they just were missing that wow moment for me. We also didn't feel we had a lot of guidance from our dress consultant.
Needless to say we both left feeling a little humbled and thought that maybe that "wow" moment only was in movies. I then convinced myself I would need to "grow in love" with my wedding dress.
The next day our first stop was Luv Bridal and the moment we walked in the door we KNEW it was going to be a different experience. We sat down and discussed what my vision was and immediately our wonderful dress consultant said "say no more, I know exactly what you're looking for and I have the perfect dress for you". That "perfect" dress was the first dress I tried on at Luv Bridal and it was EXACTLY the dress and the moment I was looking for. The second I put it on I knew it was the dress - I felt elegant, sexy, and like myself, but the version of me.
When I walked out and showed my mom, she bursted into tears with excitement because she knew that was the gown I was going to marry my husband in. I did keep an open mind and tried on several dresses after, but everyone in that showroom knew that first dress was MY dress!
My now husband and I got married a year and some months after I originally bought the dress and from that first moment I put it on up until the moment I put it to walk down the aisle I would have never even thought about another dress - it was my perfect wedding dress!
Advice to other brides
My biggest advice to brides on their wedding day is to really soak in the love and support from your guests! Of course, the flowers, rentals, cake, music are all important, but looking out and seeing all of your favorite people from near and far in one place all just to support the love between you and your partner is absolutely priceless!
