How did you find The Find Bridal?
One of my best friends actually purchased her dress from the Find (she got married the month before me), and living in Miami I had always heard of it through word of mouth!
How did you know you’d found “the dress”?
I actually have a very complicated dress story… I purchased my original dress a year prior to my wedding date. To make a VERY long story short, the dress arrived 8 months later, was the wrong style, through 5 fitting appointments the dress continuously became more of a nightmare and 5 days before my wedding the other store still didn’t have the alteration right.
At one of my last fittings, about 3 weeks prior to my wedding, I realized that my original dress was just not going to work out. I immediately made an appointment at The Find for the next morning hoping I would be able to find a dress to bring home with me that day!
ONE OF THE MOST AMAZING PARTS ABOUT THE FIND IS THAT YOU TRY ON THE EXACT DRESS THAT YOU WILL BE TAKING HOME AND YOU TAKE IT WITH YOU THE SAME DAY.
As soon as I explained my situation to Alexis at my appointment, he stated he immediately knew which dress would be for me. Alexis truly was so helpful and really helped to calm my nerves/stress regarding the whole situation.
I tried on this gorgeous Hayley Paige strapless dress that had an overskirt and fell in love. I tried on a few other dresses but my Mom and I kept going back to that Hayley Paige dress. It was the exact style I was looking for, so comfortable, and I LOVED the overskirt option for the ceremony! Alexis was so amazing throughout my appointment and so knowledgeable regarding all the inventory, and of course, I bought the dress he knew was meant for me from the beginning!
How did you want to feel in your wedding dress?
The most important thing to me was to feel like myself in my dress and to feel excited to wear it. After purchasing my (second) wedding dress at The Find my mood instantly changed and I couldn’t wait to wear the Hayley Paige dress on my wedding day. I felt beautiful and confident in that dress which is exactly how a bride should feel!
Three words to describe your wedding day…
Romantic, dreamy, everlasting love
A standout memory from your wedding that you’ll never forget….
My husband and I slept separately the night before our wedding and both woke up super early on our wedding day due to excitement. I was standing in the bridal suite looking out from the balcony at the ocean and hotel property when I noticed my (then) fiancé sitting in our ceremony spot drinking coffee. I instantly became emotional seeing him on our wedding day even though it was from 15 floors up. Jonathan happened to look up at that same moment and saw me and we locked eyes.
We shared a silent moment together (at 6:30 AM) that neither of us will ever forget. It was the first time we saw each other on our wedding day before the first look and really allowed us to take in the true meaning of what was going to happen that day- finally becoming husband and wife!
