    Fabulous DIY Rustic Wedding in Taupo

The Bride Arrives | Outlet Bride Kelley

The Perfect Rustic Wedding

We wanted a rustic country, laid back feel for our wedding.  Jacob loves rotary cars so it was only fair to include them as our cars for the day! We both wanted space for our guests to spread out and relax.  The barn was perfect with plenty of space for the children to play, lots of seating & shade and catered for everything we wanted.

The Gown | Bridal Outlet Bride Kelley

Favourite part of the Gown

I personally loved every aspect of my gown, from the way it fitted my bust to the bead work and the length. I was surprised how comfy and light it was.  I felt like an absolute Princess.

The Ceremony

Kelley told us this was her favourite part of the day.  "I was extremely nervous walking down the aisle but being surrounded by our closest friends and family made it all worthwhile."

Personal Message from Kelley....

.... to all fuller figured Brides.  "You can look at many dresses online and still not find the perfect dress. For me, coming to Auckland with my best friend to check out the dresses at the Outlet Store was the best choice, not only did I feel welcome, I was given all the help and advice I needed. I walked away with the most perfect dress I could have wished for. I felt like a princess in my gown and full of confidence. Remember its your day and if you feel like a princess that's all that matters."
