Find the Perfect Wedding Dress at Yes to the Dress
Everyone has a different budget at expectations for their wedding day. I personally went the DIY route, with hand-painted wine bottles and flowers made from tissue paper as decor (all made by me BTW!) And you’ll have to know I’m an avid “thrifter”, it’s one of my main hobbies. So when my wedding was fast approaching I went with a super alternative idea and found my wedding dress at the Salvation Army thrift store!! It was a strapless, knee-length summer dress with boning for shape. It literally cost me $20 + extra for alterations. Can you imagine?? Now as a wedding photographer I realize how crazy that was but it totally worked for me and I was super proud of such a bargain. If only I knew about finding the perfect wedding dress at Yes to the Dress.
But I am definitely not your typical bride!
And I don’t necessarily recommend going my method of finding the perfect wedding dress. Now that I am a wedding photographer, I see so many beautiful wedding dresses. And I get a little bit jealous of other brides sometimes that I didn’t have that gorgeous, flowing dress. If you’re looking for that perfect wedding dress, you should check out Yes to the Dress located in Southampton, PA – a bit outside of Philadelphia. Their Spring 2018 collection is swoon-worthy!! You can take a look at their website and see the four different designer collections they offer and even see which ones they currently have in store.
I had the pleasure of photographing two beautiful models in two of my favorite wedding dresses there. And they even got to model the other sides of things, in bridesmaids dresses. Let’s start there… Here is the beautiful Kisha Bar in a Jasmine : Belsoie – a sleeveless, v-neck, trumpet style almond colored dress. And Polina Osipova in a stunning purple slim A-line dress with sweetheart neckline.
