Why did I choose Milanja?
It started out as pure luck and ended in a fairy tale!
I had seen the shop window in Paddington and it always has stunning dresses in it. They were elegant, sophisticated and vibrant, but they also all had an element that was a little different, something that set them apart of the crowd. When it came to going wedding dress shopping, my sister took me straight to five ways. I saw the drop flower dress in white in the window and it ticked all my boxes. (White, long, elegant, low back, v neck and it had that something different). So how could i not try it on. It was the first one i tried on.
My sister and i went quiet when i came out of the dressing room. I looked at her and said, have i actually just found my wedding dress, the very first one i tried on? We giggled, faceted my mum from Queensland and we were all stunned and so utterly happy because the dress was so me, so my wedding and so utterly perfect in every way.
Milanja not only ticked every aspect of the style and type of dress i wanted, but i also wanted it to be an Australia design, the highest quality fabric and made in Australia. I wanted to look stunning and support Australian designers. And Milanja did this perfectly!
How did I feel wearing the dress on the day? Like the best version of me!
I felt beautiful, glamorous, elegant, a bride and most of all I still felt like me! Some brides look back on their wedding day and will often comment on how they would change something, especially about their dress over time. I will never have this issue.
My Milanja dress is timeless and still my dream dress. Thank you 🙂
