Happy Trndez! For those not familiar with this Armenian tradition, we're featuring Christine's blog from 2016 where she explains this Armenian holiday that takes place on February 13th.

CHRISTINE'S STORY: MY BRIDAL SHOWER

Our wedding date, July 03, 2016, is getting closer and closer! The next big event before my wedding is my bridal shower and I couldn't be more excited! My mom is hosting my bridal shower for me and she let me choose the theme and venue. I'm really excited to see how things pan out. I'm planning on having my bridal shower in June, a month before my wedding. It will be an intimate event at The Villa in Woodland Hills. My mom, cousin, and I went to brunch there and I fell in love with the scenery. It is perfect for a bridal shower. The Privato is a private room up a gorgeous staircase with a cozy fireplace and furnished balcony. It feels like home!

CHRISTINE'S STORY: BOOKING OUR HONEYMOON

Victor and I knew that no matter where we went on our honeymoon, we would incorporate our culture and experience a new place to see together. We hoped to have the opportunity to experience the countries from which our families come from together one day.

Our good friend, Hrant Vartzbedian, invited Victor to join him and AGBU, the largest Armenian non-profit organization for a SARF dinner. Victor purchased a few raffle tickets. The grand prize was airfare to Armenia. A few weeks later we were absolutely shocked when Hrant told us that Victor had actually won the grand prize!
