Vicky’s Story

Vicky and her handsome husband Luke got married at Brodick Castle on the Isle of Arran in Scotland. Brodick Castle is a stunning historic place that Vicky’s family have been visiting for generations – the happy couple visited for the first time together last year. Luke proposed after seven years together, much to Vicky’s surprise, in the beautiful castle gardens!

Real Bride - Vicky Hawes

Real Bride – Vicky Hawes

When Vicky started looking for her dream wedding dress, she didn’t really know where to start – only that she loved lace! She found WED2B on Facebook and was amazed at the beautiful dresses we offer at such low prices. Along with her mum and two bridesmaids, she came to visit our Gateshead store to have a look. She was greeted and congratulated on her upcoming wedding, then had a browse through the dresses in her size and picked out four different gowns to try. After trying on each one with the help of our staff, Vicky decided a fitted, fishtail-style dress was the way to go.

De Carlo from Viva Bride

The stunning De Carlo dress from our exclusive Viva Bride collection had already caught Vicky’s eye, but she wasn’t sure how it would look. It was the very last dress she tried on…and suddenly she just knew! The dress is a gorgeous fishtail gown with three-quarter sleeves and intricate lace detail, and the skirts flow into an elegant sweeping train. It took Vicky’s breath away, and her mum and bridesmaids all agreed that this was The One!

On her big day, Vicky paired her beautiful dress with a simple, pretty bouquet, and an elegant updo. All the guests had lots of compliments, and she looked and felt like a million dollars! Having kept an open mind and tried on a range of dresses, Vicky found the one for her for a fantastic price with WED2B. It definitely pays to be open to suggestion when you visit our stores, even if you have a clear picture in your head of how you want your dress to look, because you really never know!
