What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Don't be influenced by others - do what you want to do and follow your heart! It's your dress and you have to love it and feel comfortable and confident wearing it. Weddings can get our of hand and a lot of arguments revolve around family and friends - take control!

Oh thats a tough one as everyone seems to want to upstage each others weddings these days. The quirky ideas just get better and better...anything personalised is always a nice touch especially if it is a keepsake.

What do you love most about your job?
Seeing the bride-to-be happy and excited when she's found her dress! It's a magical experience and feeling to know they chose to come to us and we have helped them find the one. We love it when we get tears of the bride-to-be and her guests...it makes the moment even more magical.
What is your favourite style of wedding dress?
I don't have a favourite - different dresses suit different people. Once someone finds the one its perfect for them. There is a dress for everyone. I do however love a hint of champagne in a gown and lace / tulle. Less is more - simple but stunning. Not too much detail.
What is the best way to incorporate "Something Blue" into the wedding outfit?
On the bottom of your shoes - we stock Rainbow Club shoes which all have a little blue stone on the borrow of the sole! The perfect touch! Alternatively a blue garter is traditional or a blue ribbon sewn into your gown.
What is your favourite wedding dress of all time?
It has to be my own gown Alfred Angelo style 2508 - not being biased but I loved this dress before I wore it and I've had a many brides who have also chosen this gown...it's just beautiful!
