Lucky bride-to-be Francesca entered our fantastic competition and won a stunning Modeca wedding dress!
There are so many amazing wedding competitions out there, but how many do you actually enter? Don’t think you have a chance? You never win anything, right? Well, gorgeous bride-to-be Francesca proves that you’ve got to be in it to win it, as she won a designer dress of her dreams from our amazing competition! She reveals her story…
“I had just been proposed to and was rather excited and a bit giddy!” says Francesca. “I started adding myself to every wedding Facebook page I could think of, signing up to mailing lists and newsletters for everything and anything wedding related. Obviously I knew of Love Our Wedding and went straight onto the website to have a browse. This is when I discovered the Modeca competition and didn’t think twice about entering!”
When Francesca found out she’d won, she could barely believe it! “When I won, I just reember having to read the email a few times before it sunk in,” she recalls. “I thought maybe I had just read it wrong. I remember my heart racing and I just jumped up and down screaming and did a little dance with my toddler! I honestly couldn’t believe I had won! I rang my mum first and then the Mr.”
Francesca’s nearest participating Modeca stockist was the wonderful Destiny Bridal in Middlesborough, who looked after all the bridal party from start to finish! “I brought them over champagne and glasses as soon as they walked in – they all celebrated before even trying a dress on!” remembers Destiny Bridal’s owner, Ellen. “They were a great bunch of people, lots of positivity and love surrounding them all. We had a wonderful day.”
The Destiny Bridal team made a lasting impression on Francesca and her bridal party. “I had already tried on a dress elsewhere that I thought was possibly ‘the one’, which was another Modeca design,” explains Francesca. “I couldn’t believe when I found something even more amazing at Destiny Bridal! Ellen and the team were so lovely and really helpful. I would definitely recommend a visit to the store if you’re looking for your dream dress.”
Francesca says ‘the one’ she fell in love with surprised her. “I definitely found my dream dress, and I couldn’t believe that it was nothing like I’d imagined I would go for,” she says. “It’s amazing how different dresses look on you. I liked lots of styles but in this one I felt most like a beautiful bride. It was comfortable, too (I did the sit down test). I can’t wait to wear it! Thank you Love Our Wedding, Modeca and Destiny Bridal.”
