On Ally’s experience at Mariana Hardwick and finding her perfect gown, she said:
“I wasn’t going to fuss over a dress until I spotted Mariana Hardwick’s bridal collection online. With only five months until the wedding, I finally got around to booking an appointment at the Bridal Emporium. I travelled from the Gold Coast to attend my appointment with my best friend in Melbourne. I tried on a total of five wedding dresses, all of which were equally stunning and beautifully made. The fifth and final dress I tried on was the one. It was an all silk, fit and flare style named “Amira” from the 2014 Classic Collection in Ivory with a Versailles belt. It was everything I wanted; simple and elegant – and a fantastic price!
As I work away as an engineer in the oil and gas industry, I did not have time for multiple appointments, so to have only visited the Emporium three times (dress selection, final fitting and dress collection) I found the whole experience highly efficient and satisfying. The staff were very professional and knowledgeable and my dress fit me perfectly.
Will and I travelled to Kaua’i, HI with our closest family and friends for our wedding at the St. Regis Princeville Resort. The dress travelled beautifully despite the long transit and I received so many compliments about it, the best of which was from my gorgeous groom.
My advice to other brides – be sure to try on every style. You may have a style in mind that you love but until you try everything on you won’t know what actually suits your body type. You should feel comfortable and confident on your wedding day, so make sure you pick the perfect dress for you!”
