Do you have a Proposal Story?:

 After a year of living together, Terry surprised me with an engagement ring on 29th of April last year. Both of us like simplicity and the proposal was at home while we were getting ready to go out for dinner, Terry had put the wedding ring in my shoe/ heels. He asked me a few times if I was going to wear those particular heels for our night out as they were his favourite. Little did I know that he had a beautiful diamond ring hidden in them.

He got in his knees grabbed my shoe off my hand (as I was just about to put them on), took out the ring and asked me to marry him. I was in tears and said a big yes! Best wedding proposals are the ones we do not expect, I will remember that day forever (and the shoes!!).

How did you come across Belle et Blanc Bridal Boutique?: 

Online, I was looking for wedding gown shops Sydney Road. Belle et Blanc was the first wedding dress shop I went in. I only had 30 mins and I did not think I would find my dream dress in such a short time. But I did! The third dress I tried on WAS THE ONE! I fell in love with the CARA dress so much that I cancelled any other appointments to other boutiques. I bought the dress the same week and I am so glad I got to wear it on my special day!
