Q: Any advice or tips for future Mrs.?
Don’t forget to have fun! This should be enjoyable for all involved. Do what you want to do, but let others help you. Make it your own, use old traditions or create new ones.
Q: What was the inspiration behind your wedding theme?
We each picked a color, Him: orange/ copper, Me: Teal. and work from there. My grandma offered her property as a venue so we decided to go more country with lace and burlap to really let the flowers pop. I love vintage and rustic, pretty but not fussy.
Q: Tell us your love story! Where & How did he propose?
We met online and instantly hit it off. We came best friends and then more. We fit into each others’ families and lives so easily. He took me to the Magical Lantern Festival in Pomona, CA right after New Years’. It was full of different displays of Chinese lanterns shaped like animals. Very fun and unique. We walked through everything and had funnel cake and hot cocoa. eventually, he pulled me aside to a little gazebo and we were standing there when he asked if I would be his wife. I started crying and had to nod cuz I couldn’t speak.
Q: How would you define the message “Dare to Love”?
Don’t be afraid. I had some heartbreak that made me kinda gunshy about falling for my now husband. But that leap was the best thing that has happened so far. If you truly love, respect, and care for each other, you are meant to be.
Q: What was the best/most memorable part of the day?
The vows. We wrote our own and got to be really personal with them. Standing in front of all our family and friends telling him why I love him was something I will always cherish.
Q: Where did you hear/find CocoMelody?
My friend bought her dress at CocoMelody. I enjoyed the experience and fell in love with the selection, so it was my first choice when I started shopping for mine.
Q: What did you love most about your #CocoMelody dress (es)?
I love the lace and style, how it fits my body perfectly and the quality of the wedding dress. The craftsmanship of all the layers and the structure in the bodice is amazing. It feels infinitely more expensive than it was.
Q: What do you think about CocoMelody and the customer service?
The whole experience was great. Scheduling online was easy. The appointment went so smooth and I bought a dress that she suggested, that I wouldn’t have picked, but absolutely fell in love with. It shipped in just a couple of months and was in perfect condition. I recommend CocoMelody to every bride I talk to.
