We love helping Elite Brides shop for destination weddings, and Brogan’s Jamaican celebration was no exception!
Brogan visited Elite Bridal on impulse after a bad experience at another store, and her hopes of finding The Dress that day weren’t high.
“I’d been to another shop the same day and had a terrible experience. On our way home we rang Elite Bridal to see if they could squeeze us in,” says Brogan. “I was only planning to try on some different styles and had no intention of buying that day.”
Brogan didn’t want getting married in Jamaica, right in the heart of the hot Caribbean, to mean she missed out on wearing the dress of her dreams.
“I wanted something that was light and really comfortable, but that still looked like a traditional wedding dress,” she says. “And I didn’t want to pay over the odds for a dress I was only going to wear twice – once in Jamaica, once for a party here in England.
“After trying on a few dresses, the lady serving me brought in a gown that I would never have chosen myself. She was sure I’d like it when it was on, and she was right.”
“I immediately didn’t want to take it off,” says Brogan. “It was perfect!”
Brogan loved the way the gown fitted her figure, and it was light and floaty enough for her Jamaican wedding. She felt ready to get jacked up!
“I tried on a jewelled belt, which felt like just the finishing touch the gown needed for a beach wedding in the Caribbean sunshine. The jewels looked stunning when the light hit them.
“I also picked the perfect cathedral veil I’d always dreamed of.”
Brogan’s complete bridal look cost less than £1,000, and she was overjoyed with her Elite Bridal experience.
“I would 100% recommend Elite to anyone,” she says. “The ladies were so friendly and helpful. They really knew what would suit me and what would travel well. They told me how to pack my dress into a suitcase, and what to do when I got to our wedding destination to get all the creases out of the dress. I can’t sing their praises enough.
“The dress was perfect – and despite getting married in 31 degree heat, I felt really comfortable. And the best part was it didn’t break the bank!”
