Experience De Ma Fille Bridal I’m Megan Galloway, and I’m the owner of De Ma Fille. I have always loved bridal fashion. I used to buy bridal magazines just to look at all the pretty gowns and pick out what I would wear. After I graduated from Tarleton State University, I became trained to be a wedding planner through the American Association of Certified Wedding Planners. Something just seemed to be missing, however, and for some reason I was not yet ready to start a wedding planning business. I started applying to bridal boutiques and I received a job at De Ma Fille Bridal as a manager. Right away, I knew this is what I was meant to do! I loved the experience of helping ladies find their perfect wedding gown. In August 2011, I took ownership of De Ma Fille Bridal and made it my own. De Ma Fille is loosely interpreted as “for my daughter” in French. We are a Martina Li ana: style 437 Esse n se o f A ustrali a: st y l e 1425

shabby chic, French style bridal boutique. We want to make you feel warm, comfortable and invited. This is an experience you should never forget! It should be easy, fun and enjoyable. We allow our brides and their family to go through all of our dresses. It is our goal to get to know our bride and what she is looking for in order to help her with choosing a gown, as well as her finding new styles she might like. We know it’s very important to touch, feel and remember the gowns; that’s why we are one of the few boutiques who allow pictures! When our brides finally say YES to their dress, we like to serve them champagne to celebrate the monumental moment and take pictures of them toasting. We are a smaller boutique, but that serves us better so we can focus on our brides without the overwhelming atmosphere of a large chain store. We have, at most, only 2 appointments going on at the same time so each bride feels like we are all hers! We prefer appointments so the bride has a personal consultant; however, we are happy for walk-ins to come in and look around. If we don’t have an appointment at that time, then we can take care of you immediately. De Ma Fille has been featured on Style Me Pretty, Green Wedding Shoes, and The Wedding Chicks. We have received Best of the Knot in previous years and Wedding Wire’s Bride’s Choice in 2013!

What our brides say “I am so glad I ordered my bridal gown from de ma fille. The owner was extremely helpful and ordered the dress of my dreams that was no available at her store. The owner makes you feel completely comfortable, attends to and welcomes any guest you may bring with you, and lets you take photos of all the gowns you try on! I would highly recommend de ma fille to all my friends!” -Michelle “I absolutely loved my experience at De Ma Fille Bridal! After wedding dress shopping at a few larger stores, I loved the more intimate and personal experience I received this boutique. Megan...was so knowledgeable and she not only made me feel special, but she also put me at ease in the midst of all the wedding planning stress! I knew I was in good hands with this staff!” -Rachel “My mother, sister and I walked into Megan’s store on a Saturday afternoon without an appointment and she and her mother could not have been nicer or happier to help us out despite their obligations to other brides there. The gowns are fantastic and I found my perfect dress there that same day. 2 weeks later I went back and found a made me feel like family I love this shop and recommend to everyone on the dress hunt.” -Danielle

Moments Wedding Photography What’s in a photo?

Consumer cameras today are better and cheaper than ever, so you may be wondering, “Why should I spend the

photographer?” Before you rush out and hire your photo-crazy-friend, remember this: a high-end camera does not make you a wedding photographer. It makes you the owner of a high-end camera! Wedding photography is more than just clicking the shutter. A professional photographer knows when and where to be at each step of the day, how to handle difficult and even impossible lighting situations (candlelight anyone?), what to do when equipment fails, and how to pose that awkward bridesmaid; all while beautifully capturing each moment of your wedding.

The Wedding Album With wedding budgets getting tight and plenty of DIY photobook options out there, you may be tempted to skimp when it comes to getting a wedding album. Many photographers will sell an “Image Only� package in an effort to offer less expensive wedding photography. However, we found that the couples who opt for this type of coverage NEVER do anything with their wedding photos. That makes for one very expensive DVD sitting in the bottom of your desk! We feel that the wedding album is one of the most important mementos you can keep from your special day. Albums have changed a lot since the days of 5x7s and 8x10s slipped into a spiral-bound book. At Moments, we offer the highest quality albums in terms of design, construction, and preservation. All of our wedding albums feature panoramic lay-flat spreads on Fuji Crystal Archive photo paper, a protective luster coating, clear edge gilding, and a minimum of 32 gorgeous pages. Each spread is professionally designed in-house to fit your style, turning your wedding photography into a piece of art. An album of your wedding is the perfect way to relive the story of the day and share each of its special moments with family and friends. We have worked hard in order to offer one of these stunning books in all of our wedding collections so that no bride goes home without one. Learn more at: www.moments.pro

Meringue Bakery

Although you may think it is just a cake – your wedding cake will, in fact, be the centre piece of your wedding reception. The eyes of all your guests will automatically rivet to the layers of cream, frosting and sugar with which you will cap the evening by cutting for all to share. So, when you are choosing your wedding cake, you have to make sure that it not only matches the style and theme of your wedding and reception, but that it is a proper reflection of you as a couple. Choosing a wedding cake is probably one of the most enjoyable things about wedding planning, but it can take time to find just the right cake and just the right person to create it. Here are some important things to consider when choosing your cake.

When is your wedding? The date and location of your wedding is crucial when choosing the cake. For example if you plan on having your wedding in the summer at a hot location, things like mousse, or even ice cream cake might be out of the question Ask your baker what types of cake are in “season.”

How big will the cake be? Wedding cakes can come in all shapes and sizes. Traditional cakes which have several tiers are normally a great choice, and one your guests will remember.
