Katelynn came into Cameo & Cufflinks in the fall of 2014 for her first wedding dress shopping experience. Neither her fashion consultant or herself knew that she would only have to put on two dresses to find the wedding gown of her dreams! The idea that a dress will "speak" to you isn't something to roll your eyes at, and Katelynn found this out within minutes of her appointment. Katelynn says she "knew that the dress was the one" within seconds of trying it on. Although not all brides find the dress of their dreams so quickly, it's good to hear a first-hand-account from a Real Bride that didn't hesitate to buy the dress because it was only the second one she had tried on. She let the wedding gown speak to her, and listened to her heart without uncertainty!
Katelynn & Jason got married in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, a sentimental area, since they were engaged at the same spot a few years pervious. Her dress couldn't have been more perfect for a destination wedding! Many brides that have destination weddings chose dresses that appear light, such as chiffon or all tulle gowns, when in reality those fabrics don't breathe any better than satin or beaded gowns. Katelynn opted for the more traditional bridal look, and didn't let her location stop her from choosing a gorgeous, "all out" gown with a long train & intricate beading. The soft tulle skirt created an air of romance, while the beaded drop-waist bodice screamed elegance, luxury, and femininity.
Our Cameo & Cufflinks bride planned the whole wedding herself, while here in Calgary, without the help of a wedding planner. She explained that it was "hard to communicate with people in another country, when planning a wedding" which meant she had to do a ton of her own leg work, having to do "a lot of research when it came to hiring people."
When we asked her her overall experience, Katelynn told us that she wouldn't change a thing! And we certainly agree with her. Congratulations to Katelynn and her new husband Jason, on their fairy-tale destination wedding day! Thank you for letting us be the wedding gown store that was with you on your wedding day fashion journey!
