Meriel struggled with dress shopping as she was too impatient! She knew she wanted a vintage style dress and found herself drawn towards the beautiful creations by Jenny Packham. In her rush to find the perfect dress, she found herself putting a deposit down on one before changing her mind!
In the end she discovered the perfect gown, will soft tulle skirts and stunning detail. She bought the Minerva by Jenny Packham at Bridal Path in Hertfordshire, which she paired with sparkly flat sandals from Debenhams.
The bride had six bridesmaids – all girls who had helped her through a tough couple of years. Five of them were best friends and one was her sister. Meriel didn’t want their dresses to be too ‘bridesmaidy’ and they ended up finding the perfect gowns in Tesco! The girls wore either a lilac or cream dress with intricate beading, and Meriel bought each of them earrings and a bracelet as a gift.
