How did you meet your husband? Share exciting details about your relationship.
I met my husband during my initial college days through a mutual friend. He was the most popular guy in college, and I was a nerd. My friends knew I had feelings for him and would joke around and tease me with his name. He was a complete gentleman and always showed his care whenever I was upset.
Even though my friend told me he was interested in going out with me, he never approached me directly. After a couple of years, Travor asked me out, and I couldn't say no to him. I still remember how special he made me feel, and from that day till today, I am blessed to have him in my life.
After being in a relationship for two years, the day finally came when he proposed me. It was my birthday, and he asked me to dress up as he had planned something special for me. I was very excited and had butterflies in my stomach. I put on my favorite dress and elegant jewelry. When I came down from the stairs, he had flowers in his hand and escorted me to the car. As soon as I entered the venue, there was my favorite band playing my favorite music. After the dinner was over, he took the mike and proposed to me, and the moment was whimsical straight out of a Hollywood movie.
Tell us something about your wedding planning?
Since the day Travor proposed to me with a beautiful and breathtaking wedding ring by Cartier, I started the search for my dream wedding gown. Since I wanted to plan a classic wedding, I wanted a dress that would complement the theme and make me look beautiful inside-outside. Me and my fiancé googled the "best wedding venue in Houston, Texas, and started the search. There is no place quite like the wooden oasis of the Houstonian that provided a charming backdrop for my wedding ceremony. I always wanted to say "I do" in the most romantic setting, and for this, I wanted a princess wedding gown that would uplift my confidence on the most special day of my life.
What was your wedding theme? How did you select the location?
I didn't have a specific theme in mind. I just wanted a classic wedding in a magnificent venue. I wanted a starry wedding, and after searching for days, I found my match in Houstonian, Hotel Club, and Spa. The hotel had everything I was looking for. The magnificent interior and charming exterior is what caught my attention. The venue was ideal for my guest list and had a lovely dance floor.
How did you find your perfect dress?
I went to many boutiques in Houston, Texas and also searched for designer wedding dresses online and on Pintrest to find my dream luxurious wedding dress. After trying as many as six dresses, I was still not satisfied, and something didn't seem to click. I expressed my concern to the bridal consultant at Unbridaled Houston , and she was so patient with me and helped me find the dress that I had in mind. She asked me to try Sophia wedding gown, and the moment my eyes fell on it, I knew it was the dress I was looking for. The dress is the perfect synonym for beauty lies in elegance. The elegant design and the fit made me fall in love with myself all over again. The moment I tried the dress, I felt the magic. The breathtaking design and the low neckline is what I liked the most about the dress.
How was your experience with Yaniv Persy Brand?
My experience with the brand was awesome. The dress was absolutely stunning . It was perfect and exactly what I expected, and I got so many compliments, especially from Travor. The dress was low maintenance and within my budget. It fits perfectly, and the best part is that it was wrinkle-free. Every dress LAVISH by Yaniv Persy was special in its own way. They were all so gorgeous and looked so good. In the end, I made the right and perfect choice and picked Sophia gown that looked picture perfect. Yaniv Persy customized the bridal wedding dress for me and made me look exceptional on my D-day.
What advice would you give to all the "to-be" brides?
Don't stress about the little details! Relax and enjoy the most important day of your life. Also, pre-plan everything to avoid any last-minute hassles. The most important thing is to select your wedding dress earlier to make sure it fits you right. Match your jewelry and shoes with the wedding gown.
