A Dream Come True: Allison’s Journey at Dimitra’s Bridal

Updated: June 22, 2024

At Dimitra’s Bridal, we believe that every bride deserves a magical experience when finding her wedding gown. Today, we’re excited to share the story of our bride, Allison, whose journey with us led to her perfect Reem Acra wedding dress and an unforgettable wedding day.

The Search Begins

Allison came to us with a clear vision for her wedding day: she wanted a gown that combined timeless elegance with a modern twist. As with many brides, the search for “the one” can feel overwhelming, but we were determined to make her experience seamless and enjoyable.

The Boutique Experience

From the moment Allison stepped into Dimitra’s Bridal, we knew we had something special to offer. Our luxurious ambiance and attentive staff made her feel instantly at ease. We took the time to understand Allison’s style, preferences, and wedding theme, ensuring that each dress she tried on was a potential contender.

The Dress

Allison’s journey led her to a stunning lace A-line gown by Reem Acra. The dress featured a high neck bolero with intricate lace detailing, which she later removed in the evening to reveal a strapless bustier neckline. This transformation added versatility and sophistication, perfectly aligning with Allison’s vision for her wedding attire.

Our skilled seamstresses meticulously tailored every detail to ensure the gown fit Allison perfectly, including creating the bolero from fabric ordered from the designer; making her feel like the most beautiful bride in the world.

The Wedding Day

Allison and her now-husband, Andrew, celebrated their love in an intimate setting in Perugia, Italy, surrounded by 44 of their closest friends and family. The rustic vineyard provided a breathtaking backdrop for their special day. Allison’s Reem Acra gown from Dimitra’s Bridal not only fit her like a glove but also captured the essence of her personality and the romantic theme of her wedding.

We can only imagine that the compliments from her guests were endless, with many saying it was one of the most stunning wedding dresses they had ever seen. Seeing Allison’s joy and confidence in her gown, from her beautiful pictures, is always a touching experience for our team.


Every bride deserves to feel like the most beautiful version of herself on her wedding day, and finding the perfect gown is a huge part of that experience. Allison’s journey with us at Dimitra’s Bridal is a testament to the importance of personalized service and understanding a bride’s unique vision.
