Josiane Wearing The Mila Dress
Tell us how you met the love of your life?
We met at a backyard pizza party through a friend we had in common. He casually asked for my number and a few days later we went rock climbing in a canyon on our first date.
When did you know that this person had stolen your heart?
I think we both knew pretty early on but it took us some time to admit it. Lots of rock climbing adventures, alpine hikes, sushi dates, and movie nights later we finally started to officially date.
Tell us about the proposal.
I went on a trip to Costa Rica by myself to go spend time with a friend and her family down there. He received the ring the morning after he dropped me off at the airport. He proposed when he picked my up 2 weeks later as he couldn't keep the ring secret any longer. I looked so tired and was so confused after traveling for about 21 hours (3 flights) but nevertheless so happy!!
Explain to us how you found Wear Your Love?
In all honesty, I found the dress after seeing a sponsored Wear Your Love ad on Instagram (yep that kind of marketing works). I had been helping one of my girlfriend finding her dress and rings for her own wedding and therefore Instagram knew I was on the market for wedding stuff. I got targeted by wedding ads. I wasn't engaged back then but I saved the account on my Instagram for later.
When did you know you had found your perfect dress?
I always imagined my wedding dress with long sleeves, lace, and a bit of a ballerina feel to it. When I saw the Mila dress I knew if I ever got married that would be the dress. The day after getting engaged I told my mom I was sorry but that we wouldn't go dress shopping since I already knew what dress I would get.
