Beyond The Dress is the brainchild of Lori Milner, who herself realised when she tied the knot that there was a gap that needed to be filled when it came to acknowledging, recognising and rewarding the ever-changing role, lifestyle and challenge of the modern wife.

"As the name Beyond The Dress suggests, a married woman’s life is so much more than the white wedding. Long after the band has played and the ball gown has been bagged, she is left with a brand new life to live in," says Milner, a wife, and the owner of Mobi Warehouse – a leading provider of prepaid airtime to corporate employees. "The world is not the same as when our mothers got married. Our lives today are one big balancing act and we are trying to manage so many different facets but want to pursue perfection in all of them. We want to be the best wife we can be but never lose sight of our identity and who we are. That’s what Beyond The Dress is all about - maintaining one’s independence and identity, and learning how to navigate all of married life's little obstacles, joys and intricacies.”

Through various Workshops held across the country, Beyond The Dress has empowered hundreds of women with valuable insight on how to retain their passion in life - whether they're stay-at-home moms, or high-powered executives. Each Workshop features a number of industry experts presenting on a variety of different topics, from improving one’s communication skills, the tricky art of balancing your family and work life and financial planning, to pregnancy, beauty and image management, health and wellness, and many more.
