What did you enjoy most about your experience with A Little Something White?
I loved the enthusiasm and support from Ashley! I came to A Little Something White 3 months before my wedding not focusing on the fact that it might take a little longer to actually order and receive a dress! I was incredibly nervous that I wouldn’t receive the dress and have it altered in time. Ashley was fantastic and reassured me everything would work out. Bridget (the best seamstress ever) not only did an amazing job fitting my dress but she took the time to talk with me about my wedding and made sure I knew I was in good hands with her and the entire A Little Something White team. In essence, this team made what could have been a very stressful time joyful and exciting.
How did you and your husband meet?
Boring, but through work. We’re older kids and had known each other for over ten years without even thinking about dating. One night at a work function a mutual friend planted the seed that we consider dating. Go figure! Sometimes the one you’re supposed to be with is right in front of you, and you need someone to pinch you to pay attention.
How and where did you get engaged?
On our back porch looking over the Long Island Sound drinking some wine. Tom told me he had to go inside for a second and would be right back. He was back in a flash and when I turned around he was down on one knee with the ring. I was completely surprised. And it was perfectly us
What was your favorite part of your wedding day?
Being with family and friends! We had a very small wedding and made some hard choices about who to invite. In the end, while we missed folks, our wedding day was awesome. We had a perfect sunny day with great food, music and dancing! I also loved my dress too! I’m still trying to figure out how to wear it again.
What surprised you most about shopping for your bridal gown?
The number of styles was overwhelming. If you don’t have an idea of how you want to look on your wedding day you could shop for a dress for years!
If you could give a piece of advice to a bride going through the process now, what would it be?
Think about how you want to look on your day. I know people say this all the time but it’s hard to follow through when your family is there. Fortunately, I trust my mom and sisters so I valued their advice- they helped pick the final dress!
