What is your Proposal Story?

We met the first week of college during our freshman year. Let’s just say that it was not love at first sight. 6 years later, he proposed, and I became a bride. He picked me up after work to go to a “dinner with his coworkers” downtown. On the way there, I was an absolute monster, telling him he went the wrong way, he was going to slow, where to park, etc. he just nodded and said, “okay, honey”. He parked the farthest away from the restaurant and wanted to walk through Smale park. He stopped in the middle of the garden and got down on one knee and asked the question, I screamed yes! Then I heard cheering behind me, and I turned around, and my whole family was there hiding behind a bush! He then took me to a separate location and had a surprise engagement party with all of our friends and family. September 19, 2020, will forever be one of my favorite days.


How was your Fab Bridal experience?

Finding a dress was one of my favorite wedding experiences. My mother, maid of honor and future mother-in-law came with me. I went in with the idea of sparkles and sleeves and walked out with the complete opposite. I loved the feel that Fabulous-Bridal had. It was so intimate and I felt like I was the only bride there with the attention I was getting. Anne was great with picking out dresses I described and even picked a dress out of left field that ended up being the one I picked. I used Fabulous-Bridal for alterations, and they were great to work with. I would definitely suggest Fabulous-Bridal for all of your wedding dress needs.


What was the highlight of your wedding day?

Of course marrying my husband was up there. But my favorite memory of the day was definitely after all the reception formalities and we just danced our hearts out. If you wanted to talk to me or my husband you had to join us out on the dance floor and we made it hard for you to leave. I know that if you asked guests that attended our wedding they would say the same thing.


What is one piece of advice you have for future brides?

I asked my husband this question and he said, “enjoy every second of the day because it will fly by”. I would say remember what you are there for, you are finally marrying your person; nothing else should matter.
