Give us the proposal details! When? Where? How?
Well, the story is interesting because my husband-to-be never wanted to get married! It was like an annoying bug for me to know that he doesn’t want a family, still, I was patient. And one day we were in a cozy restaurant here in Yerevan called “Mamoor” eating steak and drinking French wine. We were talking and laughing a lot, and suddenly, during one of my jokes, he took a very serious face, looked me in the eyes, and asked, “Will you become my wife”? I was like *awkward silence… “Don’t joke with me on that topic, never, ever again!” He insisted that he wasn’t joking at least five times before tears rolled down my cheeks and I said, “YES!” But as we live in Armenia (a country with a lot of traditions) we decided to have an engagement party for our families and friends, where he put his ring on me. We decided to plan it for March 8, because that was the day of our first date.
What has been your favorite experience planning the wedding?
Almost everything! But, especially choosing my dress, believe me… it is stunning!
How do you stay sane under the pressures of wedding planning?
I’m a planning freak, so I have everything in their places long before it should happen. So, keeping everything on their shelves helps me stay sane!
What is your favorite part of using Joy for your wedding?
I love everything! You guys did a great job.
What piece of advice would you give couples to ensure that they use Joy to its fullest potential?
Don’t send the invitations and RSVPs before you start creating your website with Joy! (I did that mistake, and now I can’t use it to its fullest potential!)
At Joy we believe that even though a wedding lasts a day, joy lasts forever. What does that mean to you?
Our wedding is a whole new start with a lot of new opportunities and challenges! Most of all, it creates a whole new level of love and friendship.
