New Hampshire Magazine's Bride Spring-Summer 2023 - 46

The Dress Whisperer
Q A&
with Madeleine's Daughter team
member Lindsay Feeney
A bridal favorite on the Seacoast since 1975, Madeleine's
Daughter in Portsmouth offers a curated collection of
wedding attire and a sisterhood that will last a lifetime.
The bridal boutique believes that finding " the dress "
should be an experience, not a decision. From the
comfortable atmosphere to the variety of personalized
appointment options including a new luxurious collaboration
with Seacoast Picnic, each team member goes
above and beyond to make sure that each of their MD
brides feel cared for as they say " yes to their dress. "
Q: What bridal trends are you
A: Our 2023 trend forecast is one of
seeing for 2023?
our most exciting to date. We are
seeing a lot of prominent bow details,
whether a hair accessory or detachable
element to the gown, as well as pops
of intentional color, whether it is in the
gown itself, an embroidered veil, or
within florals.
Q: How far in advance should a
A: Ideally, a bride will shop for their
bride make an appointment?
wedding dress 9-12 months
prior to their wedding. This timeline
allows brides to have all of their options
available to them while shopping and
schedule their alterations without feeling
rushed. When you're ready to book
your appointment, know that coveted
night and weekend appointments tend
to book 2-4 weeks in advance at bridal
salons, while weekdays will have more
availability and may even offer a more
relaxed appointment experience.

Q: How do you select
your designers?
A: When our buyers add new
designers to our collection,
we consider lines our brides have
mentioned to us in their appointments,
as well as designers who could fill a
specific need in our inventory, whether
that be aesthetic, price point or both.
Whether or not that designer lands a
spot in our closet will depend on our
expert evaluation of their collection's
overall fabric quality, fit construction
and ability for our clients to easily
alter. We make an effort to see
designers we are interested in when
we attend bridal market, that way we
can see and feel the designs in person!
Q:
What should a bride
anticipate as far as sizing?
A: Most bridal shops have one
sample of each gown, meaning
that there is one size available to try
on. It's very rare for a bride to try on
gowns at a salon and have them fit.
Be prepared for your stylist to use
professional methods, whether
clips, modesty fabric, etc., to help
you envision what this gown would
look like on you in a more accurate
size. Traditionally, bridal sizing runs
much smaller than ready-to-wear,
so a street size 8 could fit perfectly
into a 12.
" If you feel like the
best version of yourself,
you can envision
this gown at your
venue and you don't
even want to take it
off-you've found it! "
Q:
How does a bride know if
they have found " the one " ?
A: Some brides burst into tears
when they find their gown,
