Q: Any advice or tips for future Mrs.?
Remember who the day is about. Appreciate that everyone has an opinion, but don’t let those opinions steer you in a different direction!
Q: What was the inspiration behind your wedding theme?
We wanted to have the most casual, relaxed wedding. No “snobby” stuff. Just family & friends mingling, and Jake and myself having the time of our lives.
Q: Tell us your love story! Where & How did he propose?
We have been together since ’08 11 years together in April. We met through friends and quickly decided we were made for each other! Jake proposed in 2017 in Port Fairy, Victoria. After a long hike along the beach, he dirtied his knee at the beautiful lighthouse.
Q: How would you define the message “Dare to Love”?
Love with everything you’ve got.
Q: What was the best/most memorable part of the day?
Getting to hold Jakes hands at the end of the aisle.
Q: What did you love most about your #CocoMelody dress (es)?
I had so little altered! The wedding dress was so comfortable and was exactly what I wanted!!
Q: What do you think about CocoMelody and the customer service?
Fast delivery! It was nice to have regular contact during the making and sending of the dress, for piece of mind. The dress was so reasonably priced and beautifully made! Highly recommend CocoMelody!!
