There's a beautiful story behind this Alex Perry wedding dress. Not only is it epically gorgeous and spot-on for a micro-wedding. But is that it is also preloved. Real bride Lauren Maybank made the pro-planet choice to Recycle her wedding gown. We can't take our eyes off the new owner Fran, not only does she look utterly stunning, but because Fran chose a pre-loved wedding dress, we feel a little bit more in love with Fran and Paul's big day. Keep scrolling to enjoy their gorgeous micro wedding, heart eyes pending.

It's a love story! Two brides. Two weddings. One stella
Alex Perry Wedding Dress.

I bought my dress pre-loved from Lauren Maybank, it is Alex Perry from Net a Porter. It was perfect for the vibe of our day. Paul and I agreed we just wanted to have the most fun, relaxed, enjoyable day we could, however possible. Scrap the formalities and uncomfortable clothing. We just wanted to enjoy ourselves and most importantly become husband and wife - that was what mattered.


Our advice for other planning couples is to know that it will be the best day ever, whatever you do. Don't stress about the details, grab your loved ones and enjoy yourself.
