Sometimes life just takes over! For Kimberley, it took four years between finding her dream Elite gown and wearing it down the aisle…
Kimberley’s now-husband Carl proposed to her back in 2014. The couple had already been together for nine years, but life was just about to get a bit more complicated!
“I was eight months pregnant with our first baby when Carl proposed,” says Kimberley. “After William was born, I couldn’t wait to find my perfect dress – with the vision that we’d book our wedding for the following year…”
Sure enough, it wasn’t long before Kimberley had found her way to one of our Elite boutiques, and was trying on everything she could get her hands on.
“The dresses at Elite were beautiful, and the ladies so helpful,” Kimberley says. “They helped me try on the dresses I’d always envisioned for myself, and then threw in some curveballs too… It was one of the curveballs I fell in love with! It was the complete opposite of what I thought I would buy.
“I bought the dress without a second thought… But after that the wedding plans went on hold and life took over!”
Four years and another gorgeous son later, Kimberley and Carl finally ‘got down to business’ with their wedding planning.
With a few alterations from Elite’s seamstresses, we made sure that years later Kimberley’s dream curveball dress still fit her like a glove.
“The fittings were simple, quick and straightforward, and the dress was amazing when finished!” says Kimberley. “Thank you for the perfect dress for our perfect day.”
