Family, friends, wedding dresses, your own personal DJ… what more could you ask for?! For bride – to – be Kelsey Shore, unexpected (yet, wonderful) wedding memories were made at The VIP Wedding Dress Shopping Party that she won through Mike Staff Productions & The Wedding Shoppe!
We wanted to collaborate with our friends at the Wedding Shoppe to provide an extra special experience for a bride swamped in the planning process. Something glamorous, fun and most importantly stress free. So, the Wedding Shoppe shut down their store just for Kelsey and her crew to give them a private shopping experience. We provided her own personal DJ to spin her favorite music, a photographer & a videographer to document the party — and away she went! They shopped until they dropped and wouldn’t you know it — SHE FOUND HER WEDDING DRESS!
WATCH: Behind the Scenes VIP Wedding Dress Shopping Party
Now, we’re smart enough not to show pictures of the (stunning) gown she’ll be walking down the aisle in but in the mean time, here’s a behind the scenes look at how her party went down and the other beautiful gowns she had the opportunity to slip into!
1. Had you started wedding dress shopping prior to winning our contest & what made this experience extra special?
“This was my first experience wedding dress shopping! Looking at it now, I’m glad it was because I can’t imagine having it any other way.
I went into this experience excited yet anxious because I’ve never worn an elegant gown like that before and I was apprehensive on how the dresses would fit. Having my AMAZING consultant Haley, as well as my closet friends and family there in a setting specifically made for us put any worry I had to rest. I was able to focus on what was important; finding a dress that I saw myself in on my special day with the love of my life, John.”
2. Share your thoughts on The Wedding Shoppe overall. How did they make you feel?
“This experience is what I imagine celebrities go through when picking out a dress (at least in my head). Everyone at the shop made me feel welcome and special. It didn’t hurt that one of my good friends is the owner’s niece 🙂 I can’t say enough amazing things about my consultant Haley! She really is what made this the best experience it could be. She put my mind at ease when I started to feel overwhelmed with the selection and the amount of input from my party (I am surrounded by strong women in my life). She could read me like a book and knew exactly I would like and dislike, just after having a quick conversation and trying on the first dress.
What did you and your friends and family think of their selection?
“My friends and family were extremely surprised with the selection. They couldn’t believe how many dresses there were! And of course they couldn’t get over all the beautiful accessories available. It really was the perfect setting for our day.
YOU FOUND YOUR DRESS! How did you know it was the one!?!
“It was the only dress I teared up in. I got this overwhelming feeling the second I put it on. It was like all the TV shows I’ve watched forever, when you know you know! I couldn’t help but picture John’s face and what his reaction would be.”
NO PHOTOS 🙂
3. What did you think about having a complete Mike Staff Productions entertainment team at The Wedding Shoppe to document the event?
“Mike Staff Productions far beyond exceeded my expectations! Everyone was so nice and really made me feel like a celebrity. Bethany, Pat and Justice were an incredible team and I can’t wait to see all the pictures and video! The DJ did a great job with the playlist I gave him. He found the right time to play the songs I gave him and it set the mood for the entire day. Having photos & video of this wedding experience means so much! They will be treasures I will cherish for a lifetime and will always remind me of the special day we shared at The Wedding Shoppe.”
4. Would you recommended Mike Staff Productions and The Wedding Shoppe to other brides?
“I would beg people to utilize both companies for the amazing quality of service and professionalism that they provided. I couldn’t be happier with how everything went.”
