We are known to be a store with a flair for fashion. Brides who choose their gown with us always have that something special that seems to distinguish them from the rest. It is not easy to capture one’s own style. It is a confidence that comes from within. We asked one of our dear brides how she came to choose her “unforgettable” bridal style.
Warren Barrón Bridal: Did you have a particular style of gown in mind when you set out to find “the dress”?
Brandy: Absolutely!! Before ever embarking on the journey to select my wedding dress, I knew that I wanted a ballgown! In the beginning, I was convinced I wanted an elaborate tulle ballgown but after trying on several, I knew that something was missing. It was at Warren Barron, just before stepping into the dressing room, that my mom held up one more gown and strongly suggested I try it on. Unconvinced, I agreed to try it on just for her and it ended up being the perfect dress! That day I knew that I would walk down the aisle in the “Katherine” gown by Vera Wang. While the dress was true to the ballgown style, it was very different from all the other styles I had sampled. The “Katherine” gown is truly one of a kind!
WBB: What made you decide on your gown?
Brandy: From the moment I stepped into the gown, I knew it was the perfect dress for me! Never did I hesitate or have to consider how I felt about it. I’ll never forget that special moment in the fitting room when I turned to face the mirror and saw myself standing in my wedding gown!! Before the gown was even zipped, I knew I had found the one and I couldn’t wait to walk out and show my mom! I immediately fell in love the style of the “Katherine” ballgown and the complete grandeur of the fit. The billowing layers and horsehair trim made this gown both artistic yet timeless. I had never seen anything like it and I knew it would fit our castle theme wedding perfectly.
WBB: How did your Hairstyle and Make up play into your bridal vision?
Brandy: When I arrived in Switzerland, I met and worked with my French stylist to plan my wedding day look. He took one look at my wedding dress in our consult appointment and knew exactly what I was wanting! On the day of my wedding, he styled my hair in long loose curls and my makeup palette was a combination of shimmery golds, rose pinks, and natural glows. My final wedding day look was the perfect representation of our fairytale wedding!
WBB: We say that the gown is the centerpiece for the wedding. Choose one word to describe the feeling or theme of your wedding. How did the gown play into it? What was your inspiration?
Brandy: Timeless!! Since we were having a castle wedding, I knew my gown had to perfectly fit the romantic medieval atmosphere. My inspiration was classic winter and complete splendor in our fanciful black tie setting. The architectural flow of my ballgown was picture perfect in our intimate Christ centered castle setting!
WBB: How does your wedding gown relate to your personal style?
Brandy: I really value and appreciate classic fashion that isn’t afraid to make a statement! Having a gown that was inventive, fun, and full of style fit me perfectly.
WBB: What tips do you have for new brides picking out their wedding dress?
Brandy: My best advice to brides is to really take your time picking out your gown and wait for that one unforgettable moment when you know you have stepped into your perfect wedding dress! It’s easy to get distracted with the thrill of dress shopping but be patient and pick the dress that makes you feel like the beautiful bride that you are! Be true to your vision but don’t hesitate to try on a few gowns out of your comfort zone!
Thank you Warren Barron for making my wedding dress shopping an experience I will cherish forever! Working with your salon staff was a joy and I always knew that my feelings were taken to heart. Thanks to your attention and professionalism, you have made this special season in my life completely “unforgettable.” From the first phone call to the final appointment to pick up my dress, you were all overly accommodating and welcoming. Working with you ladies has been a dream come true! An extra special “thank you” for the masterful packaging preparation of my gown for our flight and travel. We arrived to Switzerland with my gown in perfect condition! A special thank you to Catherine for all her help!! You ladies are wonderful!!!
