the white dress bridal


Welcome back to another fabulous edition of The White Dress Bridal – Bride of the Month!  We can’t believe it’s been almost a year since we last saw our next BOTM, Paula.  She was a wonderful bride to work with all the way from finding the perfect wedding dress through alterations to wishing her the best of luck and congratulations when she took her dress just days before the big day!  We were so happy when we saw Paula’s application to be the next BOTM in the mail.  Plus the wedding photos…  who wouldn’t want to have a Northern Michigan wedding?!  Going from the beach to the woods all in one day sounds like a blast and made for some truly amazing photos.  Speaking of the amazing photos, we have to give all the credit to Meg of Paxton Photography.  Now onto Paula and Christopher’s wedding day!

What was the most memorable moment of your wedding day?

The most memorable moment of my wedding day was our “first look” photos.  We had such a blast with our photographer before the ceremony that all our nerves and jitters were settled.

{Such a cute couple!}

If you could relive your day again, what would you do differently?

Absolutely nothing!  (Unless I could change the weather, but sadly I can’t).  Everything that we did helped make the day truly special.

What advice would you give to future brides?

Give yourself plenty of time to plan.  Only work on a few things at a time so as not to overwhelm yourself.  Also make sure to keep communicating with your partner to make sure you both get what you want out of the wedding!

Why do you want to be a TWD Bride of the Month?

I wanted to be a TWD Bride of the Month because it would be awesome to get recognition for all the wonderful vendors who helped make my day perfect!
