Wedding planning is in full swing now, guys... We are less than 5 months away from our wedding day!! Aaaaaaand I have officially said YES to the dress! But you'll obviously have to wait and see what it is. I've partnered up with Casablanca Bridal for my wedding dress and we couldn't be a better fit. They custom make their dresses and everything is made to measure. Meaning, if you love one of their dresses, they will make it perfectly for YOU and your measurements... AND it gets better - let's say when you're shopping, and you like the top half of one dress, but the bottom half of another, and want to change a few things as well.... YOU CAN. And that is exactly what I did. We are combining two dresses and changing some things here and there, so my dress is literally being made just for me. Pretty freakin cool, if you ask me!
So the other weekend, I went to their flagship store in Newport Beach to try on dresses and essentially design mine. The location is STUNNING, first of all, and their entire staff is so, so nice. (They do have over 600 authorized Casablanca retailers in the U.S, so you can check here to find one near you.) It was such a fun experience and I couldn't have asked for a better one! Prior to my appointment, Amanda, who ended up helping me that day, emailed me and asked if I had a Pinterest board so she could get an idea for what dresses to have available for me. I loved pretty much every dress I tried on, but eventually knew exactly what I wanted to do for mine. Once that was decided and I said YES to the dress, Amanda asked me if Daniel and I had a special song, so I said "Unchained Melody" by the Righteous Brothers - she played it over the store speakers, and it was so sweet! Pretty soon, I'll have a sketched out version of my dress, and my fitting in July!
If you're in Southern California, You can make an appointment at their Flagship store in Newport, where I went. You won't regret it!
