Real Brides: Brittany

I found my Moonlight Bridal dress at Arzelle’s in Nashville. It was my first stop for trying on wedding gowns! I tried anywhere from 6-8 dresses on and I liked all of them, but none of them was quite exactly what I was looking for. Just as I was about to walk out the door, feeling a little defeated, Kimmia (who I’m pretty sure is the store owner and who was helping me with my consultation that day) said wait just one minute, I have a dress that just came in today that I haven’t even taken out of the box yet, I think it will be exactly what you’re looking for! I put what I think was a size 14 Moonlight Bridal dress on, when I was a size 0, and even with all the clipping we had to do it was absolutely stunning. It checked off all the boxes. It was exactly what I was looking for. The lace, the detail, the long beautiful train, and last but not least the fact that it wasn’t all white! It was everything I could have dreamed of! I couldn’t have been more happy with dress. It was love at first sight! I plan to preserve my dress and hopes to one day have a daughter who will want to somehow incorporate it into her wedding.
