Is there anything more beautiful than a glowing bride standing against a truly breathtaking Canadian backdrop in her wedding gown? Our Real Bride, Brittany, exudes romance and elegance in her Alvina Valenta gown, and we couldn't have imagined a more stunning bride to wear this gown.
Brittany came into Cameo & Cufflinks with a large group of loved ones, and a very genuine, melodic personality. She didn't have any major specifications of what she wanted in her gown; she just knew she wanted it to speak to her. And speak it did! It didn't take her very long to know that her ivory, silk-satin, organza fit and flair Alvina gown with a fun tulle & horsehair bottom, was "the one". Brittany said Yes to her elegant gown on her first trip into the store & embellished it with stunning accessories--some of which were purchased through Cameo & Cufflinks, others were borrowed, and some hand-crafted by the bride herself!
Brittany had these words of advice for future brides: "The winner was dress #2! - first visit to the store, first time trying on dresses altogether.
I would recommend brides keep an open mind and don't say no to anything while it's on the hangar. At first I didn't want a mermaid fit, satin/sheen fabric, nor strapless...well, look what I ended up with!
I came away with something I never expected, and the dress I specifically went to try on completely fell flat (still have love for Hailey Paige though)
Once I saw my loved one's reactions to the dress and took a second look as if from their perspective...I had to throw away my "must-not have" list because the dress gave me reaction that everyone hopes to feel and receive from others - both on the day you first try it on and the day you walk down the aisle."
