Our gorgeous #BijouxBrides share their Bijoux Love Story with us every week. Check out our latest love story below from Sarah and Connor…

Bijoux Bridal: Where did you and Connor meet?

Sarah: We started talking on Blackberry Messenger and we found out that we went to the same school together and that our parents also knew one another as well.

BB: Tell us about the engagement Sarah! How did it happen and where were you?

S: It was my 18th Birthday when Connor proposed to me. I came home  and Connor and my son were standing waiting to give me my gifts. I remember seeing a red heart shaped box and unbeknown to me, that’s where my ring was. He gave me that present last and got down on one knee to do it. I was totally shocked and surprised.

BB: So when it came to picking your dream dress, what was your experience and how did you decide on “the one”?

S: I had been before to a wedding dress shop but I was unsure which style I wanted.  The appointment I booked was just  to go have a little nosey around see what was out there. I went there feeling really negative after having my son as I had piled the pounds on and struggled to get rid of them. I didn’t think I’d find a dress at all.

Sharon was my stylist and she couldn’t have been more helpful. I had my sister (who was my maid of honour), my mum & mother in law with me. They helped me pegs the dresses we liked. They chose one each and so did I.

I tried several dresses on, some were beautiful but they weren’t right for me. I eventually found a stunning princess dress and that was my favourite until I found the last dress which ended up being MY wedding dress.

I remember as Sharon was pulling me, that I said to her I love this and think this is the one (I’m getting emotional writing this). I showed my family and they loved it. I got very emotional and I knew this was the one for me.

I added a belt to it which completed the look along side a veil . I didn’t want to jump straight in and went home had a think but ever since that day I knew that was it. I couldn’t wait to get back over to the shop and officially say YES to the dress.

BB: So you had the perfect engagement, you’ve found your dream dress but what about your big day? Tell us about it!

S: It was amazing, it honestly couldn’t have gone any better .

The morning of the wedding ran so smoothly and everything went to plan. What made it even more amazing was that the sun was splitting the trees. We had worked every hard for this day and couldn’t believe it was finally here. We got married in Burnhead Parish church then onto Airdrie Town Hall.

Every single moment was amazing but getting to the bottom of that altar to see my husband to be standing waiting on me it felt like a dream.

BB: If you could recommend Bijoux to another bride, what would you say?

S: I had the best experience shopping in bijoux. Sharon honestly made me feel so welcome and was so lovely. She didn’t pressure me or come across as pushy trying to get me to pick and buy a dress. She helped me along side my journey and I’m ever so glad. I’m hoping to get over and have my dress cleaned and boxed in the next few weeks. I’m so happy I went here and got to say I do at bijoux.
