Francesca’s Beautiful Dress

Francesca was open minded when it came to choosing a wedding dress.  Having worked in the wedding industry for the past 6 years she knew how many different styles of dresses and designers were out there, but she wanted to make sure that she really loved what she chose.  Francesca gained inspiration from the wedding dress section on and the real wedding section which is based on true brides. 


During December 2011 Francesca and her mother travelled to Alta Costura in Kent where the bride-to-be experimented with a total of 13 different styles of dresses.  She tried on a variety of beautiful gowns, but she knew that she’d found ‘the one’ when she tried on a style by Forever Yours.  Francesca felt exactly how she wanted to feel as a bride when she looked in the mirror at her fishtail, lace style gown which featured a strapless neckline and a corseted back. It was the perfect dress for her magical occasion.
