What is your favorite wedding dress in the store?
I can't really pick a favourite because there are so many beautiful ones, as well as new ones each season, but my favourite designer is Enzoani. They have great combos with lace and crepe as well as some dresses with sparkle in them. They also have AMAZING trains- some long and gorgeous, others shorter but detailed. Stunning!
What is your favourite wedding dress silhouette?
I have two that I love. I love fitted because wedding dresses can be so structured that even if you don't think you can wear one, it will flatter you, hug all the right curves and make you feel amazing! Ballgowns are also high up on my list because who doesn't want to feel like a princess and have that fun, full skirt to play with?
What's the best part of working at Novelle?
I love that I can help make someone feel beautiful. It warms my heart when a bride who doesn't think she will like a certain fit or silhouette of a dress and tries it on and she can't stop looking at how great she looks- you can see that she truly feels beautiful.
What store would you use to max out your credit card?
This is a tough choice because I love to shop! But I would say Irvine's (one of the largest western stores in Canada). Maxing out a card there can be done way too fast. It is such a large place to shop and there is so much to choose from.
What is your favourite Duchess treat?
I have a new found love for macarons! The Novelle team did a macaron class with them at Christmas and they were all so delicious.
What advice would you give to a bride shopping for her wedding dress?
Go with what you want and what you feel best in. Sometimes we bring a big group and want all of their opinions, which is great and we should value that, but the dress should be a representation of you and your personality- you have to feel beautiful in it!
