How to work with a bridal stylist?
Simple just talk to them tell them all your hopes and dreams for your wedding. Show photos of bridal gowns you like so your consultant will have an idea of your taste. Try on different silhouettes maybe a long sleeve wedding dress could be the one. You wont know until you try. Georgina can also assist you choosing accessories and jewellery to compliment your gown. Try on veils too just to see if you feel comfortable wearing one.

I have a personal passion for the Plus Size Perfection collection. I love all of the dresses but mostly the brides that come to visit us. There is nothing quite like the transformation of self that can come from finding the right wedding dress.
The perfect dress can delight your figure, body, and soul. I love boosting someone’s confidence, and even if they don’t purchase a dress, everyone leaves with a smile on their face. But, of course, it also helps that we have over 50 styles of size 18+ dresses to choose from. Everything from a simple wedding dress style to elaborate long sleeve wedding dresses.
What’s your most satisfying client experience?
When we helped a woman who came in with a tight budget, the bride had to move the wedding forward as her father had been diagnosed with a terminal disease. Fortunately, we found a gorgeous dress; she loved it, and dad loved it too. The whole room was in tears, including me!
Before coming in to choose a wedding dress, Georgina’s advice for brides is to have a vision in mind of what type of bride you want to be. Try on styles from bohemian wedding dresses to mermaid styles. If you’re not sure, think of your location and be open to our suggestions, and don’t be afraid to think outside of the box.
Try different styles
Keep in mind that the gorgeous Pinterest photo of the dress on your phone might not be the perfect dress for you. Some popular themes at the moment are Vintage, Rustic, Glam, Country, Modern. Also, season if your wedding is in January or February, look at summer wedding dresses to keep your cool.
