When I was engaged I spent some time in NYC hunting for the perfect gown. Horse drawn carts circled central park and big street lamps lit up the high end shopping district. How lucky was I to be wedding dress shopping in such a magical place!
A lovely friend booked me an appointment at the Amsale boutique so we left my gorgeous then fiancée at a bar across the way whilst we hunted for the ‘perfect’ dress.
As we entered the large boutique we were greeted with a glass of Champagne and our own private dressing room and stylist. It was there that I fell in love with a number of their gowns. They fit beautifully and made me feel ever so special. Not only were the staff simply lovely, they were so accommodating and were prepared to find a way to ship out the perfect dress to me in Australia and find someone to assist with the tailoring on my shores.
This was the first day I had tried on wedding gowns so was extremely special to me. This day was like something from the movies. The perfect dress, the lovely shopping experience and an amazing city.
When I stepped out of the boutique into the cold NYC night for the first time in our NYC visit it snowed. I looked up at the sky, twirled and thought how utterly perfect my day had been. When I looked back down, there was my fiancée looking at me whilst he stood under some fairy lights across the street. This was one of the most special moments I’ve ever had.
Although I admit I did not end up with an Amsale gown (my Oscar De La Renta gown is a story for another day) I certainly was in awe of their collection and how special they made me feel.
Visit Amsale at their 625 Madison Ave, New York boutique and see their gorgeous Spring 2015 collection. You’ll certainly feel magical for a day.
