Happy to introduce the graceful Ashley Dumouchelle, a stunning real Riki Dalal bride that chose us to take part in the greatest day of her life! Being a bride is full of exciting moments and joyful memories. Ashley wore the beautiful Kathleen dress from our Forever Collection to this splendid country house wedding. Here before you is her full story, telling us about that amazing day & that gorgeous dress!
Where did you first discover Riki Dalal?
I first discovered Riki Dalal at a fairly new bridal boutique in London, Ontario Canada called Lavender Bridal Boutique
How was your experience in the Boutique?
My experience with Lavender Bridal was over the top! The atmosphere is very trendy and modern. It is a great bridal boutique because you do not feel rushed or overwhelmed. They also have an amazing area for your entourage to sit and relax while you begin to try dresses on! All the dresses are clean and consistently new so you get your pick from all the new trends. The owner Agatha Ozga and dress consultant Stephanie Schneider are extremely hands-on and help pick the best shape for your body.
What made you choose the wedding dress you chose and what was your favorite thing about the dress?
One of the dress consultants; Stephanie Schneider at the store actually picked my dress for me! Stephanie picked up on the vibe I was looking for and knew straight away that Riki Dalal was going to be my designer. She asked if she could pull a dress that she thought would look outstanding and was brand new. It was the Kathleen dress from the Forever collection. The dress had subtle sparkle which I was looking for and a very cool and trendy feel to it that Riki captures without it being too non-traditional. I also love that the Kathleen dress had the extra option to come in a full ivory color. Nothing could top the fit of this dress and I absolutely loved the silhouette it formed.
How did you feel when you first tried on the dress and how did you know it was the right one for you?
The second I put it on it was everything I could have dreamed of and more. The Kathleen dress is so flattering and form-fitting but also extremely light and comfortable! Being in the same dress all day you for sure want to feel effortless and comfort is key. Kathleen is like a second skin. The dress stayed looking fresh with no wrinkles morning until night.
Tell us about your Wedding day:
Brandon’s and I’s wedding day was November 9th, 2019 in London Ontario Canada at the London Hunt and Country Club. Here we had our ceremony and reception. It was all the white feel with a touch of black and very modern and sleek. We wanted a lux party that was fun and upbeat with all of our close family and friends. Rachel Clingen and Twelfth Night Events made it exactly that! One of our favorite things at our wedding was our live band! Lady Kane had everyone on their feet and we danced into the night.
