The whole experience - from booking my initial appointment through to dress pick-up - was completely seamless. My stylist Katie was so lovely and patient, and really took the time to understand what I was looking for. She struck the right balance between suggesting dresses and giving me space to browse, and I didn’t feel pressured at all to make a decision. Dotty have an incredible range of dresses and the boutique is so lovely and spacious, it was a really enjoyable experience.

Did you go for the dress you were originally wanting or another design? 

The dress I eventually chose was always on my wish list. When I first saw it in person, I remember thinking it didn’t look that good on the mannequin - but I’m so glad I tried it on!

Why did you choose the dress you did? 

My dress combined the silhouette & dress shape I wanted with  the unique beaded and feathered skirt. I hadn’t seen another dress like it, and it just felt a bit different (but still like me).

How did it make you feel and how did you know it was the one? 

It was a bit of a ‘wow’ moment when I tried it on for the first time. I had tried on dresses at two other places before going to Dotty and none of them made me feel like this dress. It was bridal but modern and with a twist, which I loved.

 Any advice to future brides 

Keep an open mind and don’t feel disheartened if you don’t find “The One”. There will be plenty of dresses out there that will work great for you. Also, don’t be surprised if you start to feel some doubts nearer the big day - you picked your dress for a reason! Finally - don’t rush the process - once it’s done, you’ll wish you could do it all again!

Thank you so much Natalie for sharing your experience with us and your your incredible pictures from your magical day.
