THE DESIGNER BRIDE
LISA MISIAKOWSKI WORE AN ELEGANT LACE DRESS BY CLAIRE PETTIBONE FOR HER ROMANTIC SCOTTISH WEDDING ON 23RD APRIL 2016
“I wasn’t dead set on a designer label for my dress, but when I did some research, I decided that the designer gowns at Blackburn Bridal
(blackburnbridal.co.uk) really suited the aesthetic I was aiming for.
The shop was beautiful, which made the experience lovely. The ladies who helped me throughout – from the first consultation to the last fitting – were so helpful, and really understood what I wanted.
I had a very clear idea of the style I wanted to go for, and what kind of dress would suit my frame. The Claire Pettibone Patchouli dress was everything I was looking for and I felt beautiful wearing it – it was only the second style I tried on!
My initial budget was £2k, but I ended up going over. Including alterations and my Emmy London headpiece, I spent £2,500. It was totally worth it to me though since I was so in love with them both.
I really felt beautiful in the dress on our wedding day, and I think it shows in the pictures. I loved the romantic feel and the delicate lace overlying the rose nude underlay. I also loved that it was very true to my personal style. Asim was blown away – I could see he was overcome with emotion when I reached the altar!”
