Unlike other brides, I found my wedding dress on my first dress and it was here at The Bridal Atelier at Mark Ingram. After a few fluffy confections, I pulled on a beaded, deco-style, empire dress that almost screamed "Me! Me! Me!" I say almost, because I still wanted to radically modify the style from a modest cap sleeve to a sleeveless, deep v-neck. Not a problem, said my lovely salesperson Lydia, as she and her team set about making the dress of my dreams happen in under four months.
From start to finish, they were the epitome of patience and professionalism, even when I had second thoughts about the dress. The end result was I spent my wedding night in a elegantly gorgeous dress, which felt like my second skin.
