Bec & Jared Matthews got married last year and WOWEE was is it the fairy tale wedding of the century!
Bec came in store over a year a head of time & for the next 18 months I loved every single wedding planning chat not only for her wedding but she listened to my wedding plans too!
The wedding was held near Mt Buller & I thought she had every detail under control but then the biggest surprise of all - they had a helicopter!!
Yes that right a helicopter! She kept that a secret pretty well!
I have stalked these photos so many times - They are INCREDIBLE!
Check out Bec's wedding dress experience! Xx
Bec's Story! Xx
Trying on wedding dresses is every girls dream, and when it finally becomes a reality it is truly a dream come true.
Jared and I got engaged in 2012 and weren’t planning to get married until 2014, therefore I knew I had some time up my sleeve.
I took my bestie, Sophie into Michele’s Bridal & Formal Wear initially to have a look at the different styles that were available. Michelle greeted us and instantly made us feel welcome in her store.
Before we knew it I was trying on wedding dresses for the very first time. Michelle was so helpful in picking styles that suited my body type & personality. I thought I had found “the dress” but decided I would think about it and come back in another day.
A few weeks later upon walking into Michelle’s store with my tribe, I saw the most perfect & exquisite gown on the manikin. I instantly fell in love, turned to Sophie who was already looking at me thinking what I was about to say. “I have to try this on”.
Michelle must have known I would love the dress because her first words were “I thought of you while unpacking this gown”.
Upon trying on this stunning gown, I had that ‘moment’ where I knew this was the perfect wedding gown for me. I purchased the gown that day in July 2013, well over a year before we were set to tie the knot. Michelle knew this and was more than happy to order and hold onto the dress for as long as I needed.
Now that my wedding dress was purchased I was on top of the world. I then went on to purchase my bridesmaid dresses. My order had fallen through in another store which closed down.
I found myself chatting with Michelle who went above and beyond her duties to try and locate the order with the supplier. Unfortunately the dresses were gone. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise as I then fell in love with the perfect dresses In Michele’s Bridal. I now had all the dresses, and everything had perfectly fallen into place.
Michelle was a dream to work with; I feel that I had a friend looking after me the entire time. Michelle would always be happy to stay open late in order for me to make dress fittings, there are no words, she is simply amazing. There was absolutely no need to travel to other bridal stores in Melbourne; Michelle’s store rivals any other boutique.
Michelle, you helped make our wedding day the most perfect day from my gown, to my bridesmaid dresses, flower girl dress and family alterations. Not to mention the priceless & professional advice, countless chats and ideas that you gave me, it is truly appreciated.
I keep telling Jared, my now husband that we need to get married again so I can have this experience again.
I can’t recommend or thank Michelle enough, you are amazing at your job and I wish you all the very best and congratulate you in building a beautiful, professional & friendly local business.
