LOVE STORY & PROPOSAL
I’m Jazmín and my husband is Luis. We met at Cancun, Mexico where we both worked and lived. After 5 years of relationship we decided to get married. He organized a dinner party with both our families in Puebla, Mexico and he proposed there, I said Yes right away.
Later we decided that the wedding should be in my natal city Oaxaca. 90% of our guests had to travel from other cities and countries to share that day with us, we were really happy.
THE WEDDING DAY
We got married on november 9th 2019 in the beautiful city of Oaxaca in Mexico. It took place in a garden surrounded with cactus. The colors we choose where green and white with a vintage and natural style. The wedding started at sunset and the majority of guests were from other cities in Mexico. It was really magical and unforgettable, we had a lot of fun. A few days later we had a trash the dress photo session in the petrified waterfalls of Hierve el Agua.
WEDDING GOWN & BRIDESMAID DRESSES
For my dress I wanted to be simple, light, with lace, short tail and tight so it will highlight my body. It took a long time to decide wich one beacuse there’s a lot of options that I loved from JJ’s House. I started by making a list of my favorites and then discard the ones that I liked less until just one remain.
I order the fabric swatches and it really helped me to choose the right color. After that I told my bridesmaids the color and fabric and each one choose their own dress. They told me thier dress ID and I made the total purchase incluiding my dress, my mom’s dress and some accesories.
I chose JJ’s House because of the variety of models and the price tag. I felt very comfortable, I loved my dress because it was exactly what I was looking for: simple, cute yet affordable. It was really light so I could dance and enjoy the party all night long. It had the lace details I wanted and the tail size was perfect for me.
It’s hard to choose a favorite moment, since the beginning of the day in the makeup session to the very last minute of the party it was perfect, filled with joy and love. I would choose when the wedding ceremony ended, we walk through all our friends and family with sparklers and I felt really happy in that moment.
ADVICE TO OTHER BRIDES
Choose a dress in which you feel comfortably to dance and party, one in which you can move freely in your first dance. One that goes with your way of being, but the most important is to choose one you like, you’ll look beautiful.
