Sometimes looking for the perfect engagement dress is just as difficult as finding the perfect wedding dress!
We all know the hassle of finding a great evening dress, let alone your engagement dress, and this is the story of how bride to be Haya Anabtawi found her gorgeous frozen blue Laith Maalouf dress:
Did you have a clear idea of what you wanted your engagement dress to look like?
"Looking for an engagement dress was such a hassle for me, very stressing"
it wasn’t that easy as I wasn’t sure what I was looking for to be honest, unlike the wedding dress.
It would’ve been so much easier if i was shopping for my wedding dress because I would have an idea of what I want and what to look for.
What were the boxes you were looking to tic off when looking for a dress then?
All I knew was to look for something extraordinary and different.
Where did you look?
I followed many friends and family recommendations, but didn't find anything I was drawn to, ended up visiting Laith Maalouf and found what I was looking for!
Your dress was custom made for you by Laith Maalouf how did this come about?
I did find the dress I was looking for AT HIS BRIDAL BOUTIQUE!
He had a really nice white “wedding” dress that I couldn't resist trying it on. the minute i tried it on I felt it was the one so we started discussing if he can customize something similar with the RUFFLES and what colour.
He customized something that I absolutely loved and added some special touches to it on a difficult time frame.
How long did your dress take to make?
It took about a month, although I gave him a short notice and had to leave to Canada.
Thank you to Haya for sharing her story with us, we love seeing Jordanian designers beautiful creations.
