Real Bride Heather: Finding the Perfect GownMarch 2nd, 2011
Heather, one of the brides in the audience of our nationally televised talk show debut of the White by Vera Wang® collection, visits today to tell us about her bridal gown shopping experience at David’s Bridal:
Finding the Perfect Gown
On January 8th, I committed a major bridal no-no: I brought an entourage with me to find my perfect gown at David’s Bridal. My mom, three sisters, stepmom, cousin, friend, future mother-in-law, and future sister-in-law all joined me for my appointment.
I showed up for the day with a long wish list and was excited to try them all on. The first two gowns I tried on were both beautiful, but neither blew me away. When I came out of the dressing room in the third dress, I immediately knew it was special. I still wasn’t ready to quit, so Lisa, my consultant, patiently continued as I worked through my gigantic list.
After trying 13 dresses, I went back to my favorites. When I came out of the room in that third dress of the day, the look on everyone’s faces confirmed what I already knew. This was the one.
I will never forget finally ringing the bell and seeing everyone in my group cry. While my entourage had a lot to say about the dresses, it was well worth having them – and their tears – there in the end. From my gown consultant, Lisa, to my personal favorite helper Geri, the David’s Bridal staff was AMAZING and never stopped smiling.
