How are 2020 brides coping with the always changing circumstances and rules?
Well its fair to say it's not easy!
Ola Khalifeh shares all of the details from her Kateb ktab and weddings with you on www.everythingweddings.co
Our wedding was scheduled on the 6th of June 2020 but because of the pandemic we couldnt do it although everything was set such as the honeymoon trip, wedding venue, wedding planner, make up & hair.
However, we cancelled everything and we decided to postpone until the pandemic is over. It took longer than we expected so we decided then that we will get married on the 10th of October 2020. We were shocked when the government decided to do a lockdown on Friday and Saturday. So our scheduled wedding date was ruined for the second time and it was really stressful, extremely difficult times for both of our families and for my husband and myself.
I really would like to thank our close families because they really supported and we pulled everything together. Last minute we decided to do the katb ktab on the 7th of October 2020 and the wedding to be on the 8th of October. We did a wedding in 24 hours and it was a wonderful wedding that I will never forget.
I wouldn't change a thing and I would do it all over again.
My wedding dress was from Contessa Dubai, it is by Justin Alexander Signature. I tried so many dresses in Dubai and went to so many stores but I really loved Justin Alexander Signature dresses.
I saw many designs and tried them but when I went to La Mariee Headpieces by Ghayda I loved her quality of headpieces and the way she showcased the headpieces and the service itself.
My make up was done by Sumaia Sabbagh for all 3 events Pineapple pre wedding, Katb Kitab & Wedding. Sumaia is amazing and her attitude is just wonderful. I first saw Sumaia when she did my best friend wedding make up and I loved her.
I've been doing my hair since a really long time at Moayyad Tubeh so I did not think twice about who will do my hairstyle in all my events photo-shoot, pineapple themed pre wedding, katb ktab & wedding. I knew exactly how I wanted to do my first and second look.
Our photographer was Utopia
Saleem is just amazing and we really liked his attitude, he was so professional and we loved him.
My favorite part was going down the stairs with my father and the zafeh itself. Emotional memories and wonderful ones.
Thank you to the lovely couple for sharing details of their big day with us, and giving 2020 brides hope.
Wishing you a lifetime of love and happiness.
