“Firstly, I would just like to say a big thank you to Averil for playing such an incredibly important part in my wedding day, helping me find my perfect dress; and for making it such an exciting experience for my mom and I.
This is that one moment that any mother of the bride and bride to be dreams of and Averil made this so special for the two us!”
In my search for the perfect dress, I was looking for stockists of Enzoani as one of the dresses I had saved on Pinterest was an Enzoani, and that was when I saw Brides of Somerset as a stockist. I also noted the trunk show for Enzoani at the end of December 2017 and knew immediately that I needed to make an appointment.
My work schedule was hectic and trying to find a slot to fit in with the Enzoani Trunk show at Brides of Somerset was a little hectic, but Averil found a spot for me to come and have a look at the dresses. My mom and I visited three other boutiques before my appointment with Averil. I showed Averil all the dresses I had tried on before as well as the ideas I had saved on Pinterest. I knew I wanted a low back, figure-hugging dress, and Averil agreed and suggested a few dresses for me to try on. Between the three of us (Averil, my mom and I), we thought we found the dress but I wasn’t sure about the back of the dress and messaged Averil late that evening to tell her I am not sure of the dress. She asked me to please come back the next morning, mind you this was the day before Christmas. I was so happy to hear that she would open her doors for me again the day before Christmas (and on a Sunday) to come back and try on a few more dresses.
It was then that I tried on the Kami design by Enzoani and when I put it on I just knew it was THE ONE! We tried on one other dress as well and then I tried on the Kami again, and I felt so excited, comfortable and happy in the dress; I felt like a Bride (a feeling you cannot explain, but feel). I knew for sure we had found THE ONE! It had the figure-hugging style and the low back design I was looking for. To this day, I still love my dress and would not have changed anything about it.
The alterations were minimal to my dress and I was so happy with the small tweaks Averil did, especially not having to worry once about tripping over my dress on my wedding day!
I felt so comfortable in my dress the entire day, I was able to move around without any issues and not once did I have to worry about picking my dress up to prevent me from tripping over it or not being able to pick up something, etc. The perfect dress for my perfect wedding day. Our entire wedding day felt like one big party and being in my dress did not restrict me from partying the entire day till the early hours of the next morning.
I will never forget my husband’s first words when we met down at the ceremony area! He looked at me and said “Wow… You look absolutely breathtakingly stunning!” That moment shared between us before officially becoming husband and wife will forever be treasured.
Averil has extensive knowledge of what dresses suites each bride that walks into her boutique. She is open, honest and very helpful to ensure that you make the right decisions. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her during what is at most times an already a stressful period leading up to the wedding. My dress was ordered in December 2017, it arrived with her in April 2018 and she kept it safe until about two weeks before my wedding in November 2018. “
