We love love stories and more when it comes to our #lovewarriors. We love knowing how they arrived at B-Day, such an important day in their life, their choice of wedding dress and all the magic that accompanies the adventure of a wedding.
So we continue with our #RealBrides stories. Today we have Laura, an OTADUY girlfriend who stole our hearts with her love story. Do you want to meet her?
“I met Antonio working in Seville, we agreed on a project and we connected right away because we were both from Cádiz and we had friends in common. When you are away from home and you meet people from your land, a special connection is generated, which you may not have with other people.
We were friends for several months until we decided to take another step and started making a thousand plans together, as if we wanted to make up for lost time. Travel, sports, work abroad, removals, job changes, change of city … without realizing it we become a pack and we always support each other in everything.
After several years together, after the summer of 2019 we thought what if we got married? It wasn’t going to change anything in our day-to-day life, but it was going to mean making our union even stronger and we were very excited to take the step “.
“We wanted to organize it for May 2020, we did not want to spend a year preparing the wedding, so we got down to work with @ohemebodas and in record time we had everything organized. We were quite clear about what we wanted and we didn’t think about it much.
However, something truncated our plans, COVID-19 came by surprise and threw all the illusion and desire that we had to the ground, what do we do now? We married? We postpone? We are living in Madrid and on the date we had planned the wedding we were in phase zero, we could not go out, I had not even been able to go to any dress test, so we decided to postpone to October, thinking that everything would be controlled by then “.
“The summer passed and things did not improve much, so a month before we decided to cancel almost everything, the venue included and keep the minimum (catering and music). We decided that depending on how we saw the situation 10 days before we would decide whether to celebrate or No. We were clear that we were getting married but not if we were going to be able to have at least one meal. Luckily, in Cádiz the situation was somewhat more controlled and although there were many restrictions we were able to organize a meal with the catering, we reduced it to 25 people, we rented a house on the beach and the group that we had hired at the beginning for the cocktail, was in charge of entertaining us with the meal “.
In short, it was OUR DREAM WEDDING. We never thought that everything would turn out so well and that we would enjoy so much with our family and closest friends.
“With regard to the dress, I was not sure what I liked but I did want to feel comfortable and be me. In my daily life I don’t usually dress up much, so I wanted to go as a bride but without feeling disguised.
I was looking at many signatures until casually looking at photos on Instagram I saw a photo of an OTADUY wedding dress that I loved, from that moment I started to follow the account and see all the models and coincidentally in the same week they organized a contest for a sporting event in Madrid in which I got 2 tickets, the first time I had played something in an Instagram contest!
So I said to myself, this is a sign, my wedding dress has to be from Otaduy! “
“The whole testing process was great, I had to go several times because the top didn’t fit me but I didn’t care at all, I really enjoyed it, I loved going to the store.
On the wedding day, my dress and I were one, I was super comfortable: I ran, laughed, turned around, jumped … I felt free, just what I was looking for. I cannot be more grateful for all the way traveled and the people I have met, without a doubt it has been an unforgettable experience that I would repeat a thousand times. “
Laura chose Top Honfleur with modified sleeves, and the Calvi Skirt.
We cannot be happier to have been part of this incredible love story, for trusting us and being able to accompany you on such a special day.
Thank you Laura, we wish you all the happiness in the world!
♥️ LOVE AS A MANTRA ♥️
