From ‘I will’ to ‘I do’

Christmas is well and truly over and done with and while some will have received the clothes, make-up or games they asked for, there are some that will have been asked the question they have waited desperately to hear, “Will you marry me?”

The Christmas and New Year season is always a romantic time of year and during that period an incredible 40% of engagements take place. However, now the question’s been popped, there’s plenty to organise, including the very important choice of dress, while the date of your wedding will also impact how quickly you need to start looking for your gown.

1653Don’t leave it to the last minute though. The team at Catherine Francis Bridal Boutique recommend ordering your dress no less than nine months before your big day, as well as scheduling fittings nearer your wedding.

If you’re choosing off-the-peg, then there is a risk that your dream dress will no longer be available if you go back in a few months and Catherine explains that, ”When you know it’s the dress, you know. Trust your heart and if you buy your dress 18 months before your wedding because it’s your dream dress then so be it, that’s a job ticked off your list!”

The team at Catherine Francis Bridal Boutique, who are currently celebrating ten years in business, accommodate brides seven days a week by appointment, where you can talk to the experts, browse the wide range of dresses in stock and find the perfect dress for your big day.
