Alex & Alex – From Blind Date to Aisle

Our White Lily bride of the week Alex and her husband Alexander met on a blind date for their grade 12 formal in October 2008. After getting a good glimpse of what Alexander would look like in a suit,  Alex couldn’t deny the fact that he was The One for her.  The couple finally got married on the same day, just twelve years later. So, apparently, blind dates can turn out alright… High school romance truly is the sweetest! 

So now that we’ve established that the Brisbane couple’s love story is not only super cute but also one of a kind, let’s talk about their wedding day! Upon asking our Brisbane real bride what her favourite part of the day was, she remembers being walked down the aisle by both of her parents. Walking towards her husband is a memory Alex will cherish forever. It was a moment that was just about the couple and their love for each other, which is something that was super important to Alex when planning her wedding. Alex wanted to make sure that “…it was a day we enjoyed and that was ‘us’.” Thoroughly enjoying your love for one another on your wedding day is something we can’t emphasise enough! 

When we asked Alex what made her experience in our Brisbane bridal boutique so special, she said “I felt like a bride!”. She tried on a number of different dresses and ended up falling in love with ELARA by Pronovias, a dress that one of our consultants had suggested for her. “It felt like me, it suited the venue and it was comfortable!! I also felt beautiful.” Nothing makes us happier than making our brides feel beautiful on their special day! 

Although Alex and Alex were able to keep their original wedding date, Covid restrictions disabled their guests from overseas and interstate to attend their special day. Instead, they were able to watch the couple’s vows via Zoom – 2020 in a nutshell! Despite the initial disappointment of not having a dance floor, all of their guests had a blast: “My suggestion for other brides is to try not to stress too much about restrictions, your day will be amazing no matter how many little hiccups there are. “

When we asked Alex if there was any other advice she wants to give to future brides she said “Make sure your wedding is what you want and that it’s something that you can afford.” Roger that! 

Now that the couple is finally married after twelve sweet years, they are looking forward to just enjoying life as husband and wife with their cat Nora and dog Holly!
