Wedding winner’s dress delight
7:59am Saturday 21st September 2013 in News
A LUCKY bride-to-be has chosen her dress for the big day after winning this year’s Win A Wedding competition.
Lauren Beevers, 30, and David McRae, 39, from Wigginton, won the competition after they were nominated by Lauren’s mum.
The couple, who have been together for seven years and have a seven-month-old daughter, Robyn, will be married next June at the Marriott Hotel in Tadcaster Road, York.
This week, Lauren visited Wedding Belles And Beaus, in Micklegate, to pick out her gown and bridesmaids’ dresses. Lauren said: “I’ve got a good idea of the style I’m looking for, but I’m keeping it under my hat for now. No-one’s allowed to know what it’s like.”
David said: “Lauren seemed very happy and excited. She went with her mum and friends, so had help and feedback from them, but she’s keeping it quite quiet and to herself for now.”
The couple said: “We want to thank everyone so much, because we couldn’t have done it without you.”
Candy Stripes, Nikki Pix photography and Wards The Florist are all part of the wedding package and York Racecourse will be catering for the hen and stag parties. Tracy Williamson Designs will create the couple’s centrepieces, invitations and outside decorations and Truly Scrumptious the sweet buffet and cart.
