This week’s GL Bride is the beautiful Jody, who walked down the aisle in our timeless Gia gown. Surrounded by cherished friends and family, Jody and her fiance’s wedding celebration was filled with love, laughter, and unforgettable moments. In the following interview, Jody shares her favorite memories and journey to becoming a GL Bride! As told by Jody:

A moment of your wedding day will you never forget?

Our first look! My husband took one look at me and then started crying. For the next few minutes, we took it all in that we were getting married and it felt like we were the only people in the world. It was so special.

One thing you wish you knew as a new bride? What advice would you give to future brides?

Everything comes together perfectly and even better than you imagined! I wish I had listened to that advice and not stressed myself out as much as I did.

A detail that made your wedding special/unique?

We were so lucky to be surrounded by so many friends and family who really shared in our love and joy. Our room was filled with so much love and amazing energy, the dance floor was full the entire night long and there were a few times we just stopped for a second to take it all in because it was just so special.

How did you know your dress was 'the one'?

I knew instantly! As soon as I looked at myself, a literal *gasp* came out of my mouth and there was simply no other dress that could compare. I didn’t want to take it off and couldn’t even imagine myself in anything else.

How did it feel when you put on your dress the day of the wedding? What was everyone's reaction to the dress?

I felt the most beautiful I ever have when I put on my wedding dress. All of my friends and family were wowed and my husband especially felt like the dress was just made for me.

Would you have done anything differently?

There is not a single thing I would have done differently. My husband and I often think about how lucky we were to have the wedding of our dreams in every single way. It truly was perfect.

What was your favourite part of the wedding to plan/you were most looking forward to?

I couldn’t wait to see our design come to life, especially our ceremony. We had custom designed the structure for months and to see it finally in front of us was just unreal.

How did you meet your husband? How did he propose?

We met on a dating app! He chased me for a good couple of years until I gave in to the first date that changed everything. Since then, we’ve been completely inseparable. A year and a half into dating, we went to Portugal. We were going on a tour of a Sintra and my husband told me he had booked a private tour of Pena Palace, but when we got there, he had actually reserved the palace for just us. He got down on one knee, a photographer jumped out of nowhere and it was the easiest yes I have ever said. It truly was a fairytale proposal.

How did you find working with the team at Galia Lahav?

I really enjoyed working with the team at Galia Lahav! They made the experience feel personal and special every time I walked in there. When we got closer to the date and there were some alterations that needed to be made in order for my dress to be perfect for me, the team didn’t shy away and worked so hard to get it to exactly what I had dreamed of.

How many dresses did you try on before you found it?

I tried on 17 dresses before finding my dress! I still had a few appointments scheduled, but it was so obvious that the GIA was for me so I canceled everything else and ordered my gown that day.
