A Note from Jackie:
Ladies, thank you so much for visiting Nearly Newlywed and considering a modern approach to such a special day. I know from my own experience how exciting and frustrating the wedding planning process can be, and I hope that we can help make things a little more pleasant, and special, for you.
If you have any ideas or questions for me you can contact me directly on twitter @nearlynewlywed and of course, for shopping queries and advice, pin me on Pinterest and we will get to finding the perfect dress for you.
I had a lovely wedding. I married the right guy in the right dress, but the road to finding it and selling it afterwards wasn't as easy as I would have liked. I hope that I can help you find the right dress, in a fun and upscale environment, so you can look and feel your very best.
