Beautiful Wedding Dress and Fantastic Service Helps Set the Tone for a Perfect Wedding
By her own admission, Sophie Dennis likes things to be done the right way – in fact she says she is a perfectionist – and wanted her wedding dress experience to be a pleasure not a chore.
Her search for the perfect dress started just 4 weeks after she got engaged – a full 22 months before she was due to walk down the aisle in the small Church in St Allen near Truro where she had grown up.
For Sophie it was important to find a wedding dress boutique that was local to her so she could easily visit for fittings and alterations. But she was also looking for a boutique that listened to what she was looking for and could give her a range of beautiful options to try on.
It’s fair to say, before stepping over the threshold of Amanda K, things didn’t start perfectly for her and her mum.
“Myself and my Mum were shopping in Truro one day and we popped into another boutique. However they were really quite rude to us, which was extremely off-putting. We knew Amanda K was a short walk away so we decided to give it a whirl. Amanda was our first point of call she was fantastic,” said Sophie.
“I wanted a wedding dress boutique that helped me feel relaxed when I was looking at dresses, somewhere that would let me try on as many dresses as I wanted or needed without it being any trouble. And that’s exactly what I found at Amanda K,” she added.
Having explained to Amanda the style of dress she wanted – a stylish yet plain, strapless ivory dress – Sophie looked at a few examples before Amanda gave her a copy of Wed Magazine to help fire her inspiration further.
“She sent me away with a copy of Wed magazine and booked another appointment shortly after so I could try some dresses on, and it was by looking in the magazine that I found the dress. It was totally different from what I wanted originally, designed by Maggie Sottero, and was my absolute favourite – despite trying on some others.
“It was such a lovely experience – Amanda and the team made me feel at ease with beautiful dresses and amazing service. What’s more they were always at the end of the phone or an email when I needed help or advice and nothing was ever too much trouble for any of the girls there – which his exactly what I was hoping for,” said Sophie.
Well Groomed Groomsmen
But it wasn’t the last wedding shopping that Sophie would oversee ahead of the big day. In addition to getting her headpiece to match her dress, Sophie made an appointment for her fiancé and best man along with the grooms to visit the Men’s Room menswear department at Amanda K to be measured for and choose from the wide range and styles of suits available.
“Using the Men’s Room at Amanda K was fantastic. The suits were perfect. They measured all our 6 groomsmen and even managed to get my son, who is 12, into the same matching suit! Everyone looked amazing, the combination of suits, ties, colours – it really was perfect,” said Sophie.
