    Disney Wedding planning is underway and with all of the uncertainty currently happening in the world one of the parts of wedding planning I was most looking forward to was finding my dream dress! I am beyond excited to share that Demetrios Bridal reached out to me to help me find my dream gown and let me tell you they didn’t disappoint! Prior to my appointment Demetrios Bridal let me know they were doing a Trunk Show at one of their stockists, Mon Amie Bridal in Costa Mesa, CA so I decided now was the time to try on some gorgeous dresses and find the ‘ONE‘!

    Prior to my appointment I sent over some of my favorite styles from the Demetrios Bridal website over to the team to assure they had those top picks of mine at Mon Amie Bridal. Since I am having a Disney Wedding at Walt Disney World I knew I wanted a princess style dress…a ball gown with tulle and some embroidery and sparkle…something that felt like Cinderella so I was beyond excited when I got to Mon Amie Bridal with my bridesmaids in tow to begin trying on some gorgeous gowns!

    The team at Mon Amie Bridal was beyond sweet + helpful, they had dresses perfect for a Disney Wedding from Demetrios already pulled and they all were flawless so it was quite a tough decision. Here’s a look at some of my favorites I tried on that made me feel like an angel!

    The dresses were all so beautiful and it was a surreal moment to actually step into some of these gorgeous gowns. I definitely shed some tears + got pretty emotional. My maid of honor facetimed with my dad in NY so he could give his opinion and it was fun to get a guy’s perspective haha But he cried and we experienced all sorts of emotions thinking about me walking down the aisle.

    What I love about Demetrios Bridal is that their gowns feel so unique, special + feminine which is exactly what I was looking for…something dreamy, magical + one of a kind. Demetrios can even customize the dress to my liking which I am so excited about because I am going to add some pretty sleeve detailing to the style I chose (which you will have to see when I walk down the aisle).

    The entire Demetrios Bridal collection is impeccable…whether you are looking for a ball gown or an A-line or a mermaid style etc. They create gorgeous dresses for every type of bride which is what made me feel so at ease when picking and choosing different styles.

    It was so fun to also add a veil and bouquet when trying on the gowns…it really helped me envision what I would look like on my big day. I am still deciding on my veil but I did pick my dress that day after trying on a variety of styles…it was a tough decision but I went with a gorgeous ball gown which I can’t wait to share with you all!

    A big thank you to Demetrios Bridal for helping me find my dream dress and Mon Amie Bridal Salon for the amazing experience for my dress try on! All photography shot by Vanessa Hicks Photography.

    We’re ENGAGED!

     💍WE’RE ENGAGED  💍

    Ya’ll I don’t even know where to start but the most magical thing happened while we were at Disney Aulani for my birthday…my boo proposed! YES I am ENGAGED! I am still in shock…it was the most perfect, romantic proposal I could have ever dreamed of so let me dive in and give you all the deets!

    As you all know I am a MAJOR Disney fanatic and every year we typically head to Disney World to celebrate my birthday and our anniversary but this year my now fiance decided he wanted to switch things up and head to Hawaii so naturally I said we need to have a Disney element to our trip so Aulani became the only choice! 

    We checked in on February 2nd the day before my birthday and I was incredibly anxious because I was hoping he would propose since this was also going to be our 3 year anniversary!

    So we are enjoying Aulani, I head to the spa the morning of my birthday, relaxing getting a body treatment while my boo gets a massage and then we head back to the room to get ready for a character dinner we booked for my birthday that night.

    I finish getting ready and my boo says let’s head to the beach to get sunset pictures before dinner (knowing me I never one to turn down photos although I was suspicious at this point) so we head down to the beach and we start walking away from people who can take our picture so I’m looking around and then all of a sudden he says ‘Melissa’ in a serious tone, gets down on one knee and I burst into tears without another word being said haha He puts the ring on my finger and I am full on ugly crying I am so thrilled. missyonmadison, missyonmadison instagram, la blogger, missyonmadison blog, engaged, bride to be, aulani, disney aulani resort, disney aulani proposal, getting engaged at aulani, how he asked, engaged in hawaii, hawaii trip, engaged on my birthday, my engagement story, my proposal story, perfect proposal, proposal ideas, engagement ring,

    While I am in full crying mode out from behind the bushes comes Vanessa my fav photographer turned one of my closest gal pals who was secretly shooting the proposal and then took our engagement photos during our trip. This as silly as this sounds meant the most to me because it was something I told my boo I wanted so he remembered her, got her contact info, emailed her months prior and planned the whole proposal and shoot without me ever knowing…truly a man after my heart with beautiful pictures in mind ♥

    My ring is a 2.5 carat cushion cut diamond ring…exactly what I dreamed of and wanted, my fiance did and amazing job getting it sized to perfection and knowing what I’d love especially since I had nothing to do with the ring selection process (he refused to listen to me haha :p)

    Now comes the even better part…because I truly love Disney my boo and I decided we are going to have a DISNEY WEDDING!!!! AHHH I was never too excited about having a wedding because my family dynamics are a bit dysfunctional and I don’t have a huge circle of friends but the fact that I get to have the wedding of my dreams complete with Mickey Mouse at Disney World…now I am EXCITED ♥

    I’ll be heading to Disney’s Fantasy Weddings Event at the Grand Floridian at Walt Disney World in Orlando in two weeks to begin getting inspo for the wedding!

    Let the wedding planning begin!  💍
