Experiencing the Madonna gown


The Madonna:

Galia Lahav gowns are not only dresses, they are an experience. It is all about how it all begins, how you feel the first time you put on one of our gowns, how people react to seeing you wearing one, what feelings arouse from you and much more. Eleni Amiradakis, a beautiful GL bride wore the incredible Madonna on her wedding day and here is her story on how she fell in love with the #Madonna and every little detail surrounding her decision to wear this gown on her special day.

When Eleni knew she was getting married, a vision of the perfect dress came to her mind. She began a search and after looking through Instagram and Pinterest, she came across Galia Lahav’s beautiful designs. She told us she instantly felt in love with the details and romance in our dresses. She called immediately one of our stores, Eternal Bridal and reserved her spot, excited to try on our dresses, specifically the #Madonna.

As unique as our GL brides usually are, Eleni took her mom and her fiancé to help her say yes to a dress. She explained to us she couldn’t go without her husband since he is her best friend (what an incredible comment). The first dress she tried on when she got to the store, of course, was the Madonna. She went into the fitting room and she was full of butterflies in her stomach and nervous, hoping the dress would be perfect for her. Once on, Eleni knew it was the one. IT WAS BREATHTAKING! She described it as fitted yet comfortable, it had beadings throughout which sparkled under the lights and the beautiful lace detail on the side looked even better in person than in photos.

As she walked out of the change room, she could see the big smiles on her mom and fiancé’s faces. The feeling Eleni had while wearing the dress for the first time was indescribable… and the minute the store team added the final touch- a long matching veil- the happy (uncontrollable) tears came out. This was the dress she would wear on her wedding day.

The most amazing part of the story is that she chose the first and only dress she tried on. She felt amazing wearing the dress, so much that she didn’t want to take it off (LOL, who want to take it out right?). Eleni felt like she was meant to wear it, she felt beautiful and the gown fitted perfectly… she felt like a BRIDE!

Her wedding day was magical. She had a destination wedding in Maui, Hawaii with her closest friends and family members. However, wearing a GL gown was- as she told us- the cherry on top. It was her best day ever and she says they couldn’t have asked for a better way to start their lives as husband and wife!
