Having been a bridesmaid several times before, Melanie had a pretty good idea of what she didn’t want for her own wedding, as well as what she wanted. She found a dress design she loved, but was way over budget, so she began searching for something similar.
The bride found her dream dress in the second shop she visited, which was Hilde Heim! It was a halter neck dress featuring lots of intricate lace detail, and it looked absolutely stunning. She accessorized with some bright red, statement heels to complete the look!
Melanie had three bridesmaids, her former roommate Kirsty and two best friends from uni, Vanessa and Cath. She opted not to have a maid of honour, but each girl had a specific role in the wedding. The bridesmaids wore sophisticated black dresses made from raw silk, which they all chose together from Ultra Suite.
