“A great marriage is not when the ‘perfect couple’ comes together. It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.”
- Dave Meurer
It has been a very busy weekend for me but an amazing one. Last week has been a very exciting week. It’s Monday today and I got up this morning feeling a little tired but happy.

Yesterday I had the awesome pleasure of modeling at "Wedding Day Event" at Hotel Bristol Sarajevo. My friend Merima Halimanovic-Bravic has her own wedding dresses showroom "Destiny" with the new La Sposa collection. Wear one of her beautiful wedding dresses and people will remember your unique style – whether it be vintage, modern, rustic, or city chic. She organized a day to all the newlyweds for tips and ideas for their wedding day. Every bride has lots of things to think about when she's planning her wedding, but so many tend to forget about taking care of themselves on the day of their wedding. And it's important that those small, but mighty, details not escape even the most well prepared bride!

Wedding dresses are gorgeous garments all girls dream of wearing. I have heard that there are actually some models that would not want to model a wedding dress because for fear that they would jinx their own wedding and will never marry. Some even has the principle that they will only wear a wedding dress on the day of their wedding. Wow, I never knew models could be so superstitious.
I should just take it as a complement that I am often booked to be a bride. This simply means that I am a “dream” bride. Haha! If there is a term like that. Actually, wearing several wedding gowns for these modeling jobs have its advantages. I found out which gowns I absolutely abhor.

When I get married, I’ll probably choose off-white, beige, ecru, even lavender is nice. But I’m sure my mind will change as to what color.
I'm wearing petticoat under my everyday circle dresses, but I absolutely detest the big voluminous ones. I also do not quite understand why brides would choose to give themselves a hard time during their wedding day. Walking around in those big gowns is no joke. I can't count the number of times I had an accident with one of those things. It snags on edges, doorways and wood panels. Moreover, I cannot calculate the path wherein I’m walking because of the huge skirt, causing me to bump into things, people, etc. Believe me, it’s hard to have a big skirt on your wedding gown.
If I were to have my wedding, why would I want to limit my movement and allow myself to suffer in silence because my big and heavy gown is dragging me down. I want to be as comfortable as possible.
In general, due to the number of times I have worn wedding gowns, I have eventually realized the things that I might need when I become a real bride. If I hadn’t worn those dresses; I wouldn’t have found out the things that would make me uncomfy on my wedding day. So it does have it perks. As another superstition goes, your man shouldn’t see you in your wedding gown. Well, too late for that now!
Which kind of wedding dress is your favorite?
As always with love,
