LWD: Why did you decide to buy your dress at Little White Dress?

Season: My mom wanted to see me try on my first dresses when she was here for Thanksgiving so we went to another bridal store that Saturday. The experience was so underwhelming that I actually almost cried. Nothing about it felt special, I didn’t feel attractive in the dresses and I was so discouraged. As we looked through all the clippings I had in my dress folder, we realized that I pinned Justin Alexander’s 8465 (the champagne party dress with the amazing dimensional lace on top that was EVERYWHERE that year). I was convinced it was the one and wanted my mom there when I tried on the last dress. The problem was that it was Saturday afternoon of Thanksgiving weekend with no advanced warning. I called Little White Dress and they were willing to take me on short notice the next day. Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend? You guys rock!

When I got there we really liked the dress. But we liked the ambiance more. Being in a real boutique with designer dresses made me feel so special. Every girl should have that moment. Then I felt like my dress shopping was over so fast that I figured it couldn’t hurt to try on a few more to keep the fun going. I had been eyeing one out of my price range from another rack the whole time. When I tried on that dress there wasn’t a dry eye in our party. The truly amazing thing is that you guys were the only ones in the state who carried this dress. If I didn’t drive an hour on a holiday weekend to try on another dress, I would have never found mine. It was meant to be!

LWD:  Who did you bring with you to help decide on your dress?

Season:  My mother and my MOH Aimee.

LWD: What are three words you’d use to describe the way you felt in your dress?

Season:  Beautiful. Elegant. Timeless.

LWD:  What is the best part about being officially married?

Season: His parents stopped bugging us! But in all seriousness, it was that we began our family that day. I can’t think of a better, more exciting way to start a marriage than a really memorable wedding. Then shortly after we got pregnant and have since had a son, Caleb. Being married was the first step to the completeness we feel with our little family.

LWD:  What advice would you give a new bride when it comes to getting the best wedding day look?

Season: I have several bits of advice:

  1. Regardless of where you end up buying, every girl deserves that moment in the boutique when all the ladies coo over you. It will be one of the best memories of your life.
  2. Consider your body shape and know that a really good seamstress can make your dress even better than it was designed!
  3. Try on lots of dresses… do not deprive yourself of the joy of trying on gorgeous wedding gowns!
  4. You really, truly can tell the difference in the way a more expensive dress is made. They are designed to provide support where it’s important so that the dress holds itself up from lower on the torso instead of smooshing you up top (in the case of a strapless). The reason they are pricier is because a lot of love, creativity, and thought went into them.

Wedding Date: June 16, 2012

Wedding Location: Nosara, Costa Rica

Courtney Kuepper is a Little White Dress bride who got married this summer. Please join us to learn more about her wedding dress journey and her experiences at Little White Dress….

LWD: Tell us about your dress?

Courtney: It was Claire Pettibone’s “Cassandra” dress with a Sassi Holford sash and a custom veil and head piece from Veil Trends.

LWD: Why did you decide to buy your dress at Little White Dress?

Courtney: LWD was the second shop I went to. I went mainly because of the store’s wonderful reputation. A girlfriend of mine had purchased her wedding gown there, and raved about it. The selection of designers at different price points was super appealing. Also, it is just a really lovely place and an “experience” rather than a place to buy a dress.

LWD: What was the reason you chose the dress you did?

Courtney: In one word: LACE! It was soft, not shiny or stiff, which is what kept me from trying on most lace dresses. I never imagined myself in the dress I picked, but something drew me to it. It felt special and different, but not over the top. It was me. The dress was light and the lining was super soft. We got married on a beach, and the material was just dreamy.

LWD: What are three words you’d use to describe the way you felt in your dress?

Courtney: Timeless. Gorgetastic. ME!

LWD: What are you going to do with your dress now that your wedding day is over?

Courtney: If I had a giant walk-in closet, I would frame my dress and hang it up. Sadly we do not. We are moving out of the country soon, so it has to be confined to a prison (aka garment bag) for a while. I’ll give it lots of cuddles first though!

LWD: What is the best part about being officially married?

Courtney: That forever feeling. I’m not sure how to describe it, but knowing that we have this an entire “forever” to look forward to is so beautiful and exciting.

LWD: What advice would you give a new bride when it comes to getting the best wedding day look?

Courtney: When you hear that little voice saying, “gosh this is gorgeous, but it’s totally not me/wouldn’t look good,” TRY IT ON! That perfect dress is hiding where you least expect it.
