“Everybody says to you, you’ll know as soon as you put it on. I thought it was going to be a magical little experience, where you do research, zone in on the kind of dress you like, go in and have some champagne, and all of a sudden you put on a dress and your mum tells you it’s perfect,” radio host Henry tells Mamamia.
“It was freaking hard work.”
Henry was in London for the royal wedding and thought, perhaps, it would be a nice way to bring some of the royal wedding to her own wedding: Buy a dress during the world’s most contagious wedding festivities.
“I was over London for the royal wedding with my mum and I had in my head I would be able to get a dress and have a piece of Meghan and Harry while walking down the aisle.
“What they don’t tell you there is a lady who stands in the dressing room with you the whole time.
“For some of these dresses, there’s massive panels in them, so when you’re getting changed, you’re completely naked in front of a stranger. They’re pulling you in and out of the dresses. I definitely needed a little more champagne.”
Henry found the other thing brides aren't often told is how unique so many of the dresses are.
