WFML Real Bride: Lauren

Posted by on

With the ever changing Covid restrictions, some concern leading up to the big day is understandable. Despite having family in Victoria, no further restrictions were put in place and all guests were able to attend, so luckily our beautiful bride Lauren was able to have her intimate wedding with close family run smoothly. Held at her former home in Boonah, the stunning scenic rim was the perfect backdrop for this wedding! 

After getting engaged mid last year, the newlyweds couldn’t wait to tie the knot, with the bride saying “we wanted to get married as soon as we could,” and they “would’ve gotten married sooner if it weren’t for covid restrictions.” How lovely!

Regarding shopping for the dress, Lauren says she “is really hopeless with this kind of thing” and “spent a lot of time looking online and really didn’t like anything until I saw the bodice and skirt on the When Freddie met Lilly website.” 

Like Lauren, not everyone likes or is comfortable with shopping and trying on clothes. At WFML, we understand that finding the perfect dress can be daunting. Luckily, when Lauren “tried the bodice and skirt at WFML I knew it was the outfit for me.” She wears the Gia Bodice, with a sweetheart neckline, straps, and lace detailing, paired with an altered Demi Skirt. At WFML, we can tailor any of our garments to make it perfect for your perfect day. When asked about how her dress made her feel on the big day, Lauren said “As someone who usually wears running clothes, t-shirts and shorts, I felt elegant! It suited my figure, and I had so many compliments from everyone. I also felt comfortable wearing it. Most importantly, my husband thought I looked beautiful.”

Husband Karl chose his own suit, with the mocha tones complimenting Lauren’s dress, and the rustic-boho wedding theme, perfectly. 

Commenting on her experience “I feel I was very lucky to have found when Freddie met Lilly. They made the whole process easy, so my advice is to find a dressmaker who makes you feel comfortable.” 

“I genuinely felt beautiful that day, thanks to my wonderful outfit, which complimented my figure and personality. It even withstood five hours of non-stop dancing!”

We feel very lucky to have met and worked with you! Congratulations to the beautiful couple, Lauren and Karl.
