So, back during our trip to Winchester last weekend I snapped this shop as we wandered past as it's where I bought my wedding dress nearly 14 years ago.
As we were getting married in a registry office I knew I didn't want a 'meringue' dress but wasn't sure exactly what I did want. I had looked in a few shops and nothing had grabbed me, apart from a £90 dress in Monsoon and as our wedding was being done on a very tight budget because we were buying our first home together too I had to think about the cost of everything.
Each year myself and my (then) best friend would go to the Ideal Home exhibiton on an organised coach trip and one of the drop off points was Winchester. We were chatting away, as you do, when I just happened to be looking out the window as we drove past this shop and there in the window was the dress for me! I rang them as soon as I thought they would be open again and asked them to put it by for me. Then on my next day off I went with my dad and my sister C to try it on.
I loved it.
The underskirt makes that wonderful swishing sound when you walk!
The way it hangs from just under the bust and flares out is very flattering which was a plus
and the detailing on the top was just enough.
