Yes To The Dress - Irene's Wedding Story Featuring Allure 8900

Posted in: , ,

When Irene first started searching for wedding dresses online, she had an idea of what she wanted - a modest gown with lace. The one she finally said yes to was the Allure 8900 which is an A-Line gown featuring lace applique throughout. It has a fitted bodice with a v-shaped neckline and sheer lace detailing on the 3/4 length sleeves and fully covered back. Enjoy Irene's wedding story below.

My name is Irene Ididu Ogbeche,born on the 9th day of June,I graduated from Uniport, now married to Agbo Usang bassey. I live in Calabar and I am a business woman - interior decorations and clothing line.

How did you meet your husband?

I met my husband through my friend, his Sister when I first visited her in their home in the year 2000. We became friends but it was not until late in 2003 that I agreed to be his "girlfriend". He was based in Calabar then and I was schooling in Port-harcourt. All together, I have been with him for 9 years until we got married this April.

How did your husband propose?

He proposed to me in January 2008 on his hospital bed. He had a broken femur and so he couldn't kneel or do anything. With pains, he said "you are the only one I want to be with ,you are the only one I want to live for and he didn't wait to get a yes or no, he just slipped in the Ring into my finger and that was it. We had already established real friendship so I wasn't skeptical about him or the relationship and where it was heading.

How did you know your wedding dress was the one?

When I started planning for the big day, My dress was the first point of call. I started surfing the net because I already imagined myself on a particular dress and luckily I found one from Mori lee bridals but was redirected to their retailer in Nigeria, Imani Swank, a beautiful store located in Lekki, Lagos and  that's how I found my dress and it became my dream dress and a perfect fit

How was your wedding day? Anything you would do over if you had the chance?

My Wedding day was the happiest and most memorable day in my life. For me everything was perfect, the way God wanted it to be and I wouldn't do anything differently if I am given a chance,

What do you think is the “key” to a successful relationship?

To me the key to a good relationship is Friendship, honesty, trust, understanding, patience and a forgiving heart.
