Nothing symbolises a wedding quite like a gorgeous white gown, right?
But as anyone who has ever gone wedding dress shopping knows, it’s rarely a case of waltzing into a bridal boutique, grabbing a gown off the rack, and handing over your credit card. Oh no.
The Motherish recently spoke with former Project Runway Australia finalist and Sydney bridal designer Leah Da Gloria to find out exactly what your wedding dress designer wants you to know.
She said it was important to come to your appointment prepared with a rough idea of the type of wedding you want to have, plus any photos or dress inspiration - but to also trust a designer that you “click” with.
“Most issues happen when clients don’t trust the designer, but in the end, they usually say, ‘what was I worried about?’ Just trust it will be fine and come together,” she said.
“Because of Instagram, brides are really spoilt for choice. I have people come in, lock in a design, then come in for a fitting and change their mind because they’ve seen 10 designs they liked on Instagram. I almost have to rein that in. It pays to listen and not to overanalyse.”
