Thanks so much to the Dion team for helping me find the perfect wedding dress. The whole experience was so great especially with the limited time getting alterations done with me travelling over from interstate.
Living interstate meant I had to be organised if I wanted my Perth wedding to be perfect. Simon and I picked our wedding date and locked in our venue whilst visiting perth for Easter. The next step was to book an appointment to try on dresses. I did this with my bridal party and mum back in April 2022, I tried on so many dresses but the Ornina was a standout to both the bridal party and myself. I left that day feeling very overwhelmed so I made a second appointment for few days later without the bridal party and tried on more dresses. When I stepped back into the Ornina I knew this time it was the dress. Fast forward 12 months to April 2023 it was the wedding month! We arrived in Perth from interstate with only 2.5 weeks until the wedding. The Dion ladies were nothing short of accommodating when it came to getting me in for my alterations which were done quickly, the process was pleasant and easy. The week of the wedding everything was falling in to place and everything seemed to be going to plan, that was until the weather man threw in a curve ball with the cyclone brewing up north which was due to hit Perth on our wedding day. The venue and the vendors were amazing and made sure everything still ran perfectly with backup plans in place. The weather held off for the ceremony and photos and it was the most magical day ever. We ate, drank and danced into the night whilst the weather set in but by that point it didn’t bother us in our beautifully set up marquee at the SOPYC. What a dream wedding celebrated with our favourite people all thanks to the most amazing vendors.
