A high bar to beat

Roushana had her heart set on a glorious gown to ‘do justice’ to her husband-to-be – who’d be getting married in uniform…

After lots of bad experiences at other bridal stores, Roushana was running out of steam – and time – before her wedding.

She’d had her heart set on a 50s-style look, but was having no luck finding a dress she felt really amazing in – or which she felt would live up to her husband-to-be’s military uniform.

“I just wasn’t committing to anything, and time was running out.  When we drove past Elite Bridal and my fiancé suggested we pop in, I wasn’t that interested – I’d already been to several bridal shops where the dresses were either massively overpriced or looked cheap.  But my fiancé said it didn’t hurt to look…

“Well, when I walked in I was actually bowled over with delight!

“There were so many choices, and each and every one looked classy, high quality and stylish.”

Roushana knew she had to come back with her sister, but she was finally excited about shopping again!  When she came back for a full personal appointment, they made sure to make the most of it…

“We has so much fun and totally went over the allotted appointment time,” Roushana says.  “The staff were extremely patient, and helped me make sure I was choosing the right style for my figure and for our day.

“I left with a beautiful dress, all my accessories, and my alterations appointments booked in.”

Although Roushana knew she’d left choosing her dress a little late, she was happy to feel no extra pressure from Elite Bridal’s staff during her appointment.

“I never felt like they were trying to give me the hard sell,” says Roushana.  “I felt zero pressure – I just felt so accommodated.”


Roushana loved the dress she chose – and it definitely wasn’t a 50s gown!  Though the style was a bit of a surprise, she finally felt she felt a good match for her husband-to-be.

“I never thought I would want to wear a traditional dress, but nothing else would have done my husband justice when he looked so smart in uniform!

“I’m so glad we drove past Elite Bridal that day.”

Roushana and her husband both looked incredible on their blustery big day.
