1.Bride + Groom’s Name
Holly and Mark
2.When is the wedding day?
31st July 2019, in Dublin, Ireland
3.How did you choose your wedding dress or bridesmaid dress?
I was looking online for inspiration, I had a general idea of what I wanted (not a full-length dress, something classic but with a twist), and I came back to this dress again and again, saved on my phone. I also didn’t want to needlessly spend a fortune on a dress. Eventually, I pressed go on my order, and a few weeks later it arrived. It couldn’t have been more perfect!
4.How did you feel in your dress?
My first time trying on the dress properly, with my mother in law to help me zip it all the way up, was just weeks before the wedding. I nearly cried when I saw myself in it! On the big day, I felt so special. When my dad saw me to bring me to the car and off to the ceremony, he was crying with happiness too.
5.What made you choose JJsHouse?
It was the dress. It was *the* dress.
6.What was your favorite moment of that day?
We have so many moments from our wedding that it’s hard to choose a favourite. I think my favourite was meeting all of our guests one by one after the ceremony, we were both so consumed in the ceremony itself that our guests were a bit of a blur, here meeting them all and giving everyone a big hug and telling us their favourite part of the ceremony was heartwarming and perfect.
7.Three words to sum up the wedding day:
Perfect summer party.
8.What’s your best tip for dressing on the Big Day to share with other brides or bridesmaids?
There’s a time and place for DIY (wedding decorations, invites, maybe even the wedding cake if you’re able!), but hire a professional to do your hair and make up. Even if you are a professional hairdresser or makeup artist, you don’t want that stress when getting ready for the big day. A hairdresser to do you and your bridesmaids hair, and makeup artist to transform you all, forms a bit of a party-prep atmosphere and gets the excitement going rather than stress. Oh, and eat something! It’ll be a long day…
