Bride of the Day: Lauren


Our Bride of the day is Lauren, who wore the Loretta gown and who looked incredibly stunning in every single way. It is an honor to hear the story of such a beautiful bride inside and out and becoming part of the whole experience. Lauren and her husband are so magically in love and it is an inspiration to hear of such. Congrats to the newly weds!

I was looking for a low back dress, one day while researching online I stumbled upon Galia Lava’s website. I immediately fell in love with every dress I saw. I looked up dress stores that carried Galia Lahav and booked my first dress hunt at Bridal Reflections in Carle Place for that following week. The Loretta gown was always my favorite, as soon as I tried it on my whole family started crying. I immediately knew that I belonged in that dress.


I met my husband when I was 16. I was originally friends with his brother and we met from there. Since the first day we met we became best friends, which led to us falling in love. I knew he was the one when I knew I couldn’t spend a day without him, I couldn’t spend an hour without speaking to him, I couldn’t picture my life without him. He is my truest friend, my deepest love, the absolute best part of me. Our endless friendship created an endless love.


The highlight of my special day was our first look, his reaction was EVERYTHING!! I’ll truly never forget the gigantic smile on his face when he saw me come down the staircase. His huge smile led to many, many happy tears. As if he didn’t make me feel like it on an everyday basis, I knew right then and there I was the luckiest girl in the entire world!


Wether it was me walking out of the garage to a brand new 2016 Land Rover gifted to me by my husband, or me knocking down all of the LED candles on the staircase during our first look (shhh), or our Priest reading love letters my husband and I wrote to each other during the ceremony. Our wedding day was full of surprises and laughs!


Galia Lahav made me feel like a queen on my wedding day, I looked and felt unstoppably fierce! Besides the Loretta gown being absolutely breathtaking, it was extremely comfortable and LIGHT (shock I know!!) I couldn’t imagine getting married in any other gown, it truly was one of my absolute favorite parts of my special day! The Galia Lahav staff was absolutely wonderful, I am forever grateful to them!
