Peter & Bailey in the Lena Gown
Bailey's #GRACEBride journey started in our Atlanta showroom. After two showroom visits, she said 'YES' to LENA. The two loverbirds tied the knot at The Swan house in Atlanta, Georgia. Located in Atlanta's Buckhead neighborhood this eclectic 1928 classical mansion, set the most gorgeous and historical venue setting for their special day.
What is a GRACE woman to you?
A GRACE woman to me is elegant, timeless, cool girl.
Which GRACE dress did you wear and how did you know it was 'The One'?
I chose the Lena! As soon as I saw it online, I immediately made an appointment at the Atlanta location. The dainty, unique lace caught my eye but the way it fit like a glove sold me.
Tell us about your experience when you found your dress.
Did you buy your wedding dress online or visit one of our showrooms?
I purchased my dress at the Atlanta showroom! It was my favorite dress shopping experience. The ambiance, the champagne and the kindness from the employees made it a memorable experience. I actually didn’t buy my dress the first time I went. I tried on several different styles, undecided on what to choose. I went home and browsed the website again and saw the Lena with the chai lace underlay and knew I had to go back. Like meeting my husband, the rest was history.
What was your first date?
We met at a party in college, the rest was history.
Where did you get married?
Tell us about the location & the style of your wedding.
I got married at The Swan House in Atlanta. It was actually a backup venue, as our original venue was destroyed by a tornado just 3 months before our wedding day. We reached out to the Swan House, as this was my dream venue but was booked the year we were to wed, and they had availability on the Sunday following our original wedding day. We couldn’t pass it up. My vision has always been timeless and classic and the Swan House embodies that exactly. It’s a beautiful venue, we got so lucky!
The funniest moment on the day or something that surprised you?
Our cake order somehow never got placed at the store so it wasn’t ready for pickup that morning! Bit of a panic but they ended up making it by noon. Stressful in the moment, but we laugh about it now.
Any last advice or words of wisdom that you can share?
Be present, don’t sweat the small stuff, and do exactly what you want!
