From the bride:

With a September wedding planned, it wasn’t until June that I finally perused through my first dress shop, Victoria’s Bridal. I went on my work lunch break. I tried on about five dresses, none of them had the wow factor. There was a mannequin in the store with the Eddy K Marina. I wasn’t going to try it on. It looked too tiny and the chest area was quite low, something I knew I’d have difficulty with. But provoked by the associates saying give it a try, I went for it and am so glad I did. Instantly when it was on, I felt “Quebec”. It was romantic, elegant, sexy and classy at the same time. And the back, oh the back! So gorgeous. I left the store with only that dress on the brain. The next week, I went out on another lunch break to a different bridal shop. I tried on three dresses there. None compared. I didn’t feel the need to keep looking. I went back to Victoria’s the next day and purchased the Eddy K Marina.
