MANIFA'S STORY: MY BRIDAL SHOWER

Hey Harsanik readers. I’m so glad that I FINALLY, after two years of being engaged, got to have a celebration that is marriage related! On March 3rd, I got to celebrate my bridal shower. As many of you know I lagged planning my bridal shower until the very last minute, but I have to say that it was the best shower ever. 

My theme for the shower was all centered around my mom’s engagement dress and a LOVE letter design that I was in love with from a photo on Pinterest. Because Pearl Banquet Hall was so modern I decided the best design idea would be to make everything silver/mirrored and all different shades of pink. This ended up being the most beautiful idea ever.

MANIFA'S STORY: PLANNING MY BRIDAL SHOWER

It has been a long time Harsanik readers, but I am glad to be back with more of my journey down the aisle. For those who are reading my blogs for the first time, my name is Manifa and I have been planning my wedding since June 2017! Seems like it has been FOREVER! You can catch up on my wedding planning experience in Manifa's Story blog series. The date is now getting closer and I cannot wait to finalize everything and see how it all turns out on my wedding day. 

When it came down to planning all the little events that would happen before our wedding, my fiancé Emin and I, decided to keep the events to a minimum and just focus on planning the best wedding ever. My mom had reached out and offered to plan us an Engagement party, but we really didn’t want one so I asked her if she could throw me a bridal shower instead. I love bridal showers. They are one of my favorite events that happen before a wedding so I really wanted to have my own.  My mom agreed and from there we started planning.

DIANA'S STORY: OUR WEDDING

Garen's and my saga began on a rainy fall day. It was our first date and we had decided to go to the Natural History Museum (yes, we are self-described nerds). We realized that we had something special when what was supposed to be a nice leisurely date at the museum, ended almost eight hours later with a trip to two museums, lunch, and dinner. 

After some time dating, we got engaged in May 2018. By June, we had decided that we were going to have our own Armenian wedding.

FEATURED PROPOSAL: TADEH & LIANA

Liana was only 15 years old when she first met Tadeh. But it wasn't until a few years later when the two went to a Hollywood nightclub that the couple reunited and realized they were destined to be together. Their love for each other has withstood time and just a few months ago, Tadeh made Liana's birthday wish come true by proposing! We caught up with Liana and she told us the story of how they first met, then reunited, and exactly how Tadeh proposed. 

Featured Proposal: Tadeh & Liana

Let's start off with a brief introduction of you and Tadeh.

Where should I start? Tadeh has always been a man's man. He is this tough, independent do-it-all but he's actually the most romantic man in the whole world! I'm very kind, loving and bubbly and I think that I level Tadeh out with his seriousness.

They say opposites attract! So how did you and Tadeh meet?

#9: Eduard and Renita's Proposal Story

We love romantic and surprise proposals, so we were thrilled to get the details of Eduard and Renita's proposal story. Eduard knew Renita was suspicious of the proposal happening so he kept throwing her off until she was sure it wasn't going to happen. Eduard surprised Renita with a gorgeous set up in their hotel room with flowers, candles, and balloons. Our favorite part was when Renita peaked outside the balcony to find their close friends and family standing outside waiting to celebrate with them!
