I had a blast working with Anya Bridal! My dress was ordered and arrived quickly, and everyone was really nice. My entire family loved my gown! I have 30 or so first cousins and lots of Aunts and Uncles. But my dress was unique compared to all the other women in my family who have all gotten married. Everyone was really stunned when I walked down the aisle. David, my now husband, was kind of confused when he first saw me – he thought I was going for a big ball gown, but I chose a fit and flare style. The dress was beautiful, and the price wasn’t’ bad either. I was under budget, which was nice. My favorite part was all the sparkle on the dress. I thought I didn’t want sparkle, I thought I wanted really intricate fabric, but my dress was full of sequins!
My advice to new brides… If you have a lot of close women in your life (like more than two), I would suggest going shopping alone first and then bringing back mom and sister and cousins when you’re ready. That is what really helped me. I went shopping three other places with my whole gang and it wasn’t until I visited Anya Bridal a second time with my mom that I felt confident in making a purchase. Go alone first, so you don’t end up buying mom’s favorite dress that isn’t your choice. Also, not everything is going to be what you plan since you were a teenager. The moment I got engaged, everything went out the window. Take your time and have fun. It’s a fun experience. It gets stressful when you rush it. Enjoy the engagement!
