Katrice’s Perfect Wedding Day

Katrice’s Perfect Wedding Day

How did your partner propose?
He took me away to Athens in Greece and when we arrived we got changed and we went to a huge hill/mount which overlooked all of the city and when i turned around he was on one knee. 

What’s the best piece of advice you received in the run up to your wedding?
Never leave anything till last minute get everything done as soon as you can so on the weeks leading up you can relax and enjoy the time before you become a wife. 

How did you go about finding your wedding dress?
I had found Fross on instagram a couple of years prior to being engaged as I loved the designers they had so as soon as i was engaged I knew I needed to book a VIP appointment. I also live 3 hours away. 

How many dresses did you try on before you found ‘the one’?
I tried 8/9 with you and whittled it down to a top 3, but tried on 6 at another shop and didn’t like any of them 

Do you know the name of your dress designer?
Maddison James

What made you fall in love with the dress that you chose?
It made me feel beautiful and like a proper bride, it hugged where i wanted it to and then made me look my best.

Did you wear a veil and/or any other bridal accessories?
I got a custom made veil and also a diamonte headband for the evening

Tell us a little about your wedding day – the vibe, what inspired you, etc.
I knew where I wanted to get married 5 years before I was proposed to, holkham hall was my dream venue, i went for classic feel with stunning florals. I loved lanterns and flowers, I also fell in love with sage green and dusty pink together.

What was your favourite moment from the day itself?
I loved the actual wedding ceremony as seeing my husband at the end of the aisle was the moment I always waited for. 

Is there any advice you would be happy to share with other brides?
Be overly prepared (I was like Monica from friends) as i got to relax the week to my wedding, also know that not everything will be perfect but that’s fine you won’t even be bothered about it on the day. 

Are you taking a honeymoon and if so when (in relation to your wedding, ie, immediately after, or sometime later) and what are your plans?
We are going to a few places in America This August so we will be there for our 1st wedding anniversary 

Would you mind sharing details of any other suppliers you used? Ideally by their Instagram handle but if not, just a business name will do!
