It's All About the Dress

So, it's true what they say, "It's all about the dress"! It's the one thing that the bride gets for her wedding that fully expresses her style and elegance. When I first thought of buying my dress, my first thought was something with lots of bling, sweetheart neckline, a mermaid style, and something that hugged every inch of my curves. Little did I know, after trying on a few, that I wold go something that I would've never thought. I ended up going with a dropped waist gown covered in lace. It was a straight across neckline, but I had them change it to a sweetheart because I know that was a must have in my dress! There was no bling at all, who would've guessed that haha
Now where did I buy my dream dress? It is from a beautiful boutique in Herndon, Virginia, called Soliloquy Bridal Couture. The owner, Miriam Liggett, is a dear friend of Sweetface's and I could not have imagined getting my dress from any other shop. I was treated so wonderfully, and greeted with with this delicious mango lemonade and an array of sweet treats. I was so nervous finding my wedding gown, but I knew I was in great hands! I tried on several dresses, until I found the one. I had that feeling that you see in movies and on tv. I was speechless and lost my breath by the beauty that I felt when I put on the dress. I felt like a bride. I looked like a bride. It was truly magic. I had my sister, best friend, and mom in the shop with me and I couldn't have asked for a different set of supportive people.
I believe that the overall experience I had with Miriam and her staff made the whole experience that much better. It was so great to feel like a bride and just feel so special in her store. Not to mention, her selection of wedding gowns, bridesmaids dresses, and accessories can't be beat. The style she carries in her shop covers so many different tastes of the modern bride. Everything from embellished mermaid gowns to A-line lace dresses, any bride with any taste can go in there and find her dream dress.
To all of my brides that hire us in the beginning stages of their planning, I always recommend them to go to Soliloquy. It is the only shop I feel 100% comfortable sending my clients to because I know the service that they bring to their guests and clients, and I only want the best for my brides.
If you're a bride looking for a dress, please go here! You will not be disappointed!
