Q: Any advice or tips for future Mrs.? 

Have a destination wedding. Not everyone will be able to come however the important people will be there. Smaller and more intimate is what I wanted. Everyone will get a vacation out of it.

Q: Tell us your love story! Where & How did he propose? 

We were dating for a most 6 years and we have been traveling for to Puerto Vallarta for a few years now. We rented an air b&b. They had a rooftop pool with a beautiful view. He got down on one knee and told me how much he loved me and wanted to spend the rest of his life with me.

Q: How would you define the message “Dare to Love”? 

Taking a chance on Love. We met in a club and I didn’t think we had a chance. He had never had a serious relationship before. I was going traveling for 6 weeks and he was gone for work and we didn’t see each other for almost 2 months. I could have said “f**k it” but I took a chance on him and love and look where we are now.

Q: Did you have a particular theme or color scheme? Is there a story behind this color theme and why you chose it? 

Not really. I wanted something tasteful and classic. White with baby’s breath, greenery with touches of pink.

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

It was fun but stressful. We had a budget and I didn’t want to spend more than I could afford.

Q: What was the best/most memorable part of the day?  

We were supposed to get married on wed but unfortunately, it rained. We were able to move the wedding to Friday and we had beautiful weather. It turned out beautiful. I couldn’t ask for anything more.

Q: Why did you choose #Cocomelody for your bridesmaids? 

I had been looking for a bridesmaid dress and color on other websites and at local places. I liked the color and style of Cocomelody and the reviews were a big help.

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

I was really happy with the quality of the material and the bridesmaids were happy with the fit. I didn’t deal with Cocomelody customer service.
