Eloping is not a last minute option or something to be ashamed of.

We met Lundyn Carter from Laine London through one of Ashleigh's coworkers. When we found out about her story and her bridal gown rental brick and mortar, we were blown away. Lundyn chatted with us about the bridal gown shopping process, why Laine London is a better solution to the wedding aesthetic, and breaking down the stigma that comes with rentals.
We had the pleasure of talking to Roberta Noronha from The Bridal Finery in central Florida about off the rack gowns. It is truly something every bride should consider, especially in a crisis where it might take too long to wait on your designer gown.
