#RCREALBRIDE Dimitra looked every bit of perfection marrying the love of her life, Kosta. The day was filled with smiles and warming sunshine as they declared their love and life long commitment for one another in a traditional Greek Orthodox Church. Following their day to a modern and chic reception at the trendy Red Scooter located in Melbourne’s suburb of Balaclava. With highlights of Gold and Hot Pink to complement the sleek and modern black décor used in their colour theme.

Dimitra looked stunning in her Demetrios gown in 707. This stunning lace adorned sleeveless v-neck sheath gown with sweep train and striking low sheer back with lace and buttons exudes vintage glamour. This beautiful gown comes complete with a detachable overskirt to give the illusion of two dresses.

THE FIRST SIGHT

We met through mutual friends at a birthday party and knew we would be seeing each other again. After our first date we realised we had known each other through family when we were younger.

THE PROPOSAL

We were dating for 2 years before he finally proposed June 24, 2016! He organised a romantic getaway to stay at The Langham for the weekend. Once we reached the door of the room, he told me to ‘close my eyes’, and at that point I knew something was up! As soon as we walked through the door, the bed had a big love heart filled with rose petals and he got down on one knee, and reached for a box in pocket and asked me to be his wife! And of course I said yes after I attacked him with excitement! It’s a moment I will never forget, it was perfect!

ADVICE FOR OTHER BRIDES

Don’t stress, enjoy the day! Walk slow, talk slow, drink slow!

I found it very helpful to have event stylist with me every step of the planning process. They also created stunning pieces for our special day.  The company was called The Luxx Co and they were amazing and I would recommend to any bride-to-be!
