The dress that got away....the Suzanne Neville dress I can't get out of my head

It's bad, my husband and I got married two and a half years ago and I still can't get the Suzanne Neville wedding dress out of my head.

It was the dress that got away. A beautiful fishtail Suzanne Neville wedding gown that looked like just another wedding dress in the pictures, but when I tried it on, I felt like a million dollars. 

Suzanne Neville Seville

It was fun, sensational yet simple and sophisticated. It's corset pulled in my tummy and lifted my bosom sky high. My traditional English pear shaped body was transformed into something infinitely more like Marilyn Monroe.

It was beautiful, a triumph! It was the perfect wedding dress, yet I'd have quite happily have collected an Oscar in it too. It was just in a word, perfect.

But there's a moral to this story and a lesson to be learnt. I couldn't buy this dress, I had a wedding gown already.

Any wedding expert will tell you. Never, ever, try on a wedding dress once you've already bought one, especially if you are trying to save money. You'll end up being plagued wiith memories of the wedding dress that got away.....

If anyone owns this wedding dress, made by Suzanne Neville (and I think named Seville), please do get in contact. I'd love to hire it for the day to get some snaps in it. I could then just pretend that I wore it all along......

With love, The Chief Bridesmaid xoxo
