Q: Any advice or tips for future Mrs.?

Communication is the key and always work as a team.

Q: How did you meet? And where did he propose?

We met when we were 17 and 18.

Lloyd proposed when we were on holidays in the US. We had spent 3 weeks traveling around the US and NYC was our last stop. He planned a picnic in Central Park that didn’t go quite as planned as the original spot he picked was undergoing renovations. We found a quiet spot under a huge flowering tree where he pulled out a letter and began reading it out to me. By this stage, it hit me what was happening and I was crying and he pulled out the ring.

Q: What was the inspiration behind your wedding theme?

I wanted a simple but elegant wedding that had a floral theme. I had planned to DIY a lot of the decor. I handmade the centerpieces and table decor as well as the bridal and bridesmaid’s bouquets and buttonaires.

Q: Did you enjoy the wedding planning process? Why or why not?

Yes, because I’m a control freak so I liked to have a hand in the whole planning process so that I could add my personal touch to it.

Q: What was your hubby’s reaction when he first saw you on your big day? 

He said the dress was very me and was very flattering.

Q: What did you love most about your #Cocomelody dress? 

The details of the dress – the lace applique bodice was simply stunning and the keyhole back was a nice focal point as I wasn’t going to have a veil. I didn’t want a white wedding dress so the ivory/champagne color ideal. As I was purchasing my dress online, I had a specific design in mind that I knew would fit my body shape. Everyone also commented that the dress was very ‘me’ and the couldn’t picture any other dress for me.

Q: What do you think about Cocomelody and the customer service?

I love the designs Cocomelody has to offer. After trying several dresses on in bridal stores, I still wasn’t able to find what I liked. I kept coming back to the designs on your website. My wedding dress was the very first dress that caught my eye when I was searching the online store and I’m so glad I bought it. I loved the quality of the dress that I also decided to purchase my bridesmaid’s dresses and an evening dress from Cocomelody. The customer service was very attentive and helpful and answered any questions I had. It was very easy dealing with Cocomelody.
