Marianne and Zane
Their love story
Marianne and Zane met at a braai that both of them where invited to through different friends. A few months later they ran into each other accidentally at the Mall and exchanged numbers, started talking and eventually went on their first date. that was the beginning of it all…
Zane invited Marianne for dinner one evening. After dinner he took a blindfold and covered her eyes. she had thought he wanted me to taste a new combination he tried that didn’t look too good, haha. When I took the blindfold off he was standing on his knees with the most beautiful ring I have ever seen and asked if I will marry him.
Marianne: “I went to a few places to fit wedding dresses but nothing caught my attention. The dresses were either the wrong size or not how I imagined myself on my big day. I ended up at Olivelii with one of my bridesmaids. As they brought about 20 or so dresses, one of them caught my attention. Initially I saw this dress because of its colour. It was rum pink. I told my bridesmaid before fitting any of the dresses that this was going to be THE dress. She stared laughing and said I must stop being a rebel and wear a white dress but after seeing the dress on, not even she could think of a reason not to wear this dress.
Tips from the bride for any newly engaged couples planning their big-day:
1. Start early and don’t leave to many things for the last week or two. You will have enough stress without people breathing down your neck for programs and check lists.
2. On your wedding day stop a moment, relax and take in every second. In a blink of an eye months of planning will be over and you will only have the memories and photo’s left.
