I always knew I wanted to wear a long sleeved, lace dress for our special day. The Selena dress appeared on my Instagram feed and automatically knew I had to try her. The Goddess By Nature brand was not stocked in Adelaide but like some kind of fate, the wonderful people at Bridal Fusion by Mascia were about to stock the brand and the Selena dress. I tried her on and knew this was the one – my very first dress fitting and the search had ended. The Selena dress was for me!
Thank you for making me the most beautiful wedding dress – one that made me look far more goddess-like than I ever could have thought possible! I was so thrilled when you said you would be happy to make my Dahlia gown in ivory and with a full lining. I know that was probably a bit of a task, but I think you’ll agree that it turned out to be pretty amazing!
I saw this dress in the window of the boutique I was trying on dresses in. It was the first dress that I tried on and knew immediately it was the one. It fit like a glove! I was so fortunate that day because GBN was having a trunk show in the boutique and would be leaving the shop only a few days later. I immediately decided to buy the dress. I never would have thought I would get so many compliments on my dress, but everyone at my wedding gushed over it.
I felt so much pressure to find the perfect dress. I tried on so many before finding my Dahlia Gown. I knew that I wanted something simple, effortless and comfortable. But by the end of my search, I was quickly running out of time. When I tried on Dahlia at Savvy Brides in Sydney, I actually bought it on impulse because if I didn’t get a dress soon, I would be getting married with no dress! Not overthinking it was actually the best decision I made, because in the end I found a dress that was just…me.
The moment I said “YES” to the dress, and knew instantly it was the one (plus a few others I tried on but didn’t make the cut). It was the first one I put on, and the last one I took off. I am obsessed and in love with the Thalia gown by Goddess By Nature.
I was shopping for months for my dream gown, I had a really specific idea in mind so each dress I tried on wasn’t perfect. When I saw the GBN Vivienne gown online, I loved the style and the so much, I considered flying to Brisbane from Sydney to try it on. But after chatting to Elaine from GBN, she shipped a sample of the gown to Savvy Brides in Double Bay, which was amazing! When I tried it on I just knew it was everything I wanted. It had a low back and a low v-neck front, I was able to customise the lining and tulle colours to a dark tan/nude which was what I was looking for. The subtle sequins on the applique gave the dress a bit of a glimmer and the intricate floral applique was stunning. I ordered my gown then and there! I kept in contact with the GBN team and ordered a custom veil that had the same lace appliqués – she understood exactly what I wanted and matched it perfectly with the gown.
I cannot thank goddess by nature enough for my gown. I felt like a true goddess all day and was being stopped by so many people in NYC to tell me how amazing my dress was. I wish I could wear it every day!
