08 Sep REAL BRIDE BLOG: Laura
Date of Wedding: 4th August 2017
Venue: Lux Belle Mare, Mauritius
Creatiques Experience: Having been to a fair few weddings over the last few years, lots of Bridal shops were recommended to me, but the one name that kept appearing was Creatiques. Fortunately for me the exact dress I kept looking at was only available to try on at Creatiques! The whole experience was fantastic. My parents who lived abroad at the time could be skyped during the dress choosing, just enhancing the friendliness and professionalism that the whole team at Creatiques embodies. The shop speaks for itself. Its stylist, has fantastic eye catching window displays and a whole array of dresses fit for any bride to be! Closer to our flight to Mauritius, the team steamed and packaged my dress into what seemed an impossibly small cabin-sized box effortlessly – I wish I could only have done a good a job when repackaging it to fly home!
Favourite Moment whilst planning: Having a wedding planner abroad made the whole experience completely stress free – we didn’t have to make any decisions until closer to the date so no unexpected Bridezilla moments! But seeing the wedding dress box next to our packed suitcases made a standout memory for me as my now husband didn’t expect what was inside the box as it looked so small!
Highlight of my day: Apart from marrying my husband? Possibly the very drunk singing and dancing that occurred in the evening as we were all inclusive! Some of my favourite pictures are from those moments.
If I were to re-do the whole day? I wouldn’t change a thing! Everything was how we wanted it to be – relaxed and stress free!
Top tips for future brides: Do not rule out going abroad because it may upset people. If you want to go abroad – just do it! It was completely the right decision for us, and we were amazed by how many of our family and friends joined us to celebrate. It turned out to be the best holiday / wedding / honeymoon we could have asked for! Plus I got to wear my dress twice as we had a party back home to celebrate so bonus for me!
