MONICA + KAI

How did you meet?

We met at school through mutual friends and Reconnected When I moved back to Canberra and we worked together

How did he propose?

He planned a surprise “date” and told me it was outdoors. When we arrived, I was blindfolded (I don’t know how I didn’t pick up on this) and when he removed the blindfold, there was a picnic set up with a big sign asking if I’ll marry him and he was down on one knee.

Tell us about your wedding dress journey at Kayrouz Bridal?

My journey at Kayrouz was amazing! From the beginning the staff make you feel like a VIP. They are super helpful and knowledgeable. I found my dream dress at the first appointment! Thank you Kayrouz for this once in a lifetime experience that you made to be the best I ever thought could be!

Which Berta gown did you say YES to and what made you fall in love with this gown?

I said yes to a super sparkly gown from the Jolie Collection. I fell in love with the bows, the sparkles, literally everything about this dress is my vibe

Tell us about your Venue and Wedding theme?

My venue matches us as a couple. We love vintage and modern and we find it inspires our style and our flavour. This venue matches that exactly. Our wedding theme was quite whimsical and formal. We wanted everyone to dress 

What advice would you give to upcoming brides?

Come in with an open mind and try on styles you wouldn’t always go for so you know what elements you like and don’t like.
