Proposals That Make You Awww...

One of the best parts of being a bridal consultant is getting to hear the most amazing proposal stories! It is always one of the first questions asked, and it sometimes leaves us bridal consultants jealous and talking about it for hours!

Here are a few recent and really great proposal stories from our brides:

1. "Paint it Love"
Katie had just moved to Gainesville to live with her fiance as he finishes his degree. They were setting up their new apartment and starting to paint the walls when her fiance told her to go the store to get some other things. When she came back into the apartment he had painted on the wall "Will you marry me?" and was down on one knee! She was so surprised! The now will be getting married in Miami, and she will wear a beautiful Jasmine Bridal gown!

2. "Son Amour" (It's Love)
Christy is one the sweetest brides ever and got one of the sweetest proposals! They were traveling through Europe and in Italy he took her on a gondola ride. He gave her a romantic speech and pulled out of his backpack a gorgeous engagement ring! She had wondered why he was so protective over the backpack :) The rest of their engagement was spent in one of the most romantic countries. It didn't end there...they are getting married in beautiful Ashville, NC and she got the perfect dress for her at our Jasmine Trunk Show.

Those are just two of recent stories that made all of us go "awww". The poor future fiances of our single bridal consultants have a lot to live up to.

We want to hear your engagement stories! Comment and let us know some!

Top 10 Advice on finding the DRESS!

  • Number One Rule: Be open minded! What you think reminds you of your grandmother's dress on the hanger, may in fact be the dress of your dreams.
  • Bring someone that knows your style better than their own. I'm sure the groom doesn't want to see you in something that your bestfriend would wear on her wedding day
  • DON'T PURCHASE YOUR DRESS ONLINE! You miss out on the whole experience.
  • Don't worry what the groom will think. If he loves you, he will love what you pick.
  • Have fun! Remember that you have been dreaming of this day since you were five. Don't let the decision put a cloud over your head
  • If you hate the little bow on the dress, ask the consultant if you can order it Chances are you can. Keep in mind (contrary to what the magazines always say) there might be a charge for it. It won't lower the cost of the dress.
  • Price vs. Love: If you love the dress, GO FOR IT! Don't settle for less on what your wearing for your big day. You can always take some of the budget from the centerpieces and so on. No one will know and we won't tell.
  • Research designers online and make a scrap book of styles that you like. Do keep in mind, that it may all change when you start trying on.
  • Save the group shopping for the mall. This should be a personal experience that you should only share with one or two.
  • When you find it, you find it. Don't second guess yourself or you will pick your second favorite.
