Beach resort wedding in exotic Barbados was a dream coming true to our next RDbride Crystal Nicolls. Crystal wore our romantic Juliet dress and with a breathtaking view of the ocean, tied the knot to her handsome hubby. Being a bride is full of exciting moments and joyful memories!
Read on to find out how she found her dream dress & the story of her magical day.
How did you discover Riki Dalal? I was searching Pinterest for wedding dresses and I kept coming across all these gorgeous designs from Riki Dalal. I knew I had to check out the website to see more. It was there that I fell in love with the "Juliet" dress from the Shakespeare collection and I booked an appointment just so I could try that dress on!
Tell us about your experience in the Boutique. My mum, aunt, and two sisters were able to fly over from Barbados to come to the appointment with me. It was such a beautiful experience. Everyone was supportive and made me feel special. And the best part was that after I decided on "the one," we celebrated with champagne!
What made you pick your dress? I picked my dress because it made me think of romance. The shape is simple but the pattern is so intricate. And the way it flows reminds me of something from a fairytale.
How did you know it was "the one"?
I knew it was "the one" from the time I saw it on the website! I just needed to confirm it in person. I tried to be open-minded and try on as many dresses as I could before I made a decision. But when I finally tried on that dress, I just knew it was the one I was going to walk down the aisle with. Seeing myself in it just sealed the deal for me. Also, it was the only dress my whole family agreed on, so I knew it was special.
Tell us all about your wedding day! I'm originally from Barbados and most of my family still lives there, so it was important for me to have my wedding there. My husband's family are all British and they flew to Barbados just for the wedding. Our wedding was held at The Crane Resort, which sits on a cliff that overlooks a gorgeous beach. The ceremony took place in the Cliff Pool Garden, which has a breathtaking view of the ocean, and luckily for us, it was the most beautiful day we could ask for—the sun was about to set so the colors in the sky were stunning. The ceremony was followed by a reception in the dining hall. We had an amazing dinner, followed by lots of dancing. We even had our honeymoon there. The best part was having all of my friends and family in one place. As I said earlier, my husband's family are British and my family is from Barbados, plus I had lots of friends who flew in from other countries. So this was the first time I had everyone together at once. Needless to say— it was magical :)
Crystal wore our one and only Juliet gown from the Shakespeare Collection. Juliet is a fairy tale ball gown with a 3D floral applique top, off the shoulder sleeves, and a flowing creamy tulle.
