A week after the proposal, Zanette went dress shopping with some of her best friends to Fabric World and Bridal Centre in Musgrave. After trying on just two dresses, Zanette knew she had found ‘the one’. As she tried on the second dress, Zanette felt it had been made for her, it was just what she had been looking for and she fell in love with the detail on the corset and the great fit.
For her bridesmaids, Zanette chose her sister and her two best friends, as well as her daughter as a mini-bridesmaid. As one of the bridesmaids was arriving from New Zealand just a week before the wedding, it was important that the dresses could be easily and quickly altered just in case the size was wrong. The dresses they chose were black, pleated knee length dresses with sequin detail.
