I remember when I went dress shopping for the first time for my wedding gown, it was so overwhelming! I had an idea of what style I wanted but the moment I walked into the first store, I quickly became lost with the amount of choices and very little guidance. It was like a sea of white, ivory and creams and people asking you so many questions that I had no idea what the answer would be. Luckily, Shelley, our very sweet and chic bride-to-be would have a very different experience at Loversland, a bridal store with a fresh concept on the wedding gown shopping approach. And to make it extra personal, Erin, the wonderfully talented stylist behind Big Love Weddings, added in all these touches to make it uniquely Shelley’s wedding gown shopping experience which is featured on Cottage Hill today.
For Shelley, the experience of finding her wedding gown reflected very closely to what she wanted for her wedding, a small affair with her nearest and dearest. It was only fitting for her to bring just her mom and sister to help her find her wedding gown. Erin treated the ladies to sweet nostalgic treats from the Bake Shoppe served on beautiful plates from Plate Occasions while they leisurely picked out the gowns for Shelley to try. And how cute are the juice jugs personalized with calligraphy by Love Lettering.
Loversland has a secluded area, the “Haven” where all their elegant wedding gowns waited for our bride in an non-intimidating space and very personalized experience.
Honestly, Shelley had a tough choice, she looked so beautiful in every wedding gown she tried on.
It made the wedding gown shopping experience even more real when Shelley held this organic, garden inspired bouquet crafted by the lovely Blush and Bloom.
It is so nice to have a private space like this to try on gowns and a comfy couch for your ladies to relax on.
It was such a lovely way for Shelley to start her search, I would definitely recommend it to any bride looking for that laid-back wedding gown shopping experience, the ladies at Loversland will take great care of you!
