Real Bride: Bethany Mccloy

This is the journey of our lovely bride Bethany, who we first meet at Vicki’s Bridal Boutique in November 2021. Bethany has very kindly offered to share her bridal journey with us.

Why did you choose to come to us?

I was looking for a Boho vintage style dress, that was a bit different and unique. And you guys had exactly what I envisioned my dress to look like.

What surprised you the most about wedding dress shopping?

Being a small person, I was able to fit in the dresses I tried on and despite having all the clips to hold me in, I found it! There’s a dress out there for everyone.

How did you know it was the one?

It felt so special and it felt like me. It had all that I wanted the A-line look, the delicate beautiful detail, the gorgeous open back… I could picture myself wearing it on my wedding day with my make-up and hair done. That's when I knew this was the one for me!

Bethany had the beautiful Sicily by Kelsey Rose, with her beautiful leaf edged veil as her something borrowed from her sisters. She also had her alteration to the open back to make it work for her, where she is a petite frame.

Tell us about your wedding?

My wedding was very rustic, a Boho woodland theme, with lots of wild flowers - including many sunflowers, as they are my fav. It was a day that was perfect, surrounded by many wonderful family and friends. Lots of joy and laughter, surrounded by the amazing scenery of the English countryside, yummy food and drink and lots of dancing! It was an unforgettable day, that I’ll always remember.

What was your best bit of your day?

My best bit of my day was marrying my best friend, surrounded with my family and friends. Wearing my beautiful dream dress with all the hair and make-up done.

What words of advice do you have for Brides-to-be before choosing their dress?

Have an open mind when choosing your dream dress. You may have a certain style and vision in mind that you are wanting, but be open to trying different styles on and when you find that perfect dress, you’ll be able to picture yourself on your wedding day. Then you’ll know that this is the one for you.

Bethany's wedding was just what we imagined from all our wedding chats in the boutique. We loved all the sunflowers, matching the embroidery of Sicily perfectly. We also loved that Bethany used her alteration process to make tweaks to the dress to make it work for her body shape, which is exactly what your alterations are for.
