This happy couple wouldn't change a thing about their perfect wedding in Belgium. Read on to find out more…

Lies and Yves met under a ferris wheel in Antwerp. “We had our first date a few weeks afterwards,” says Lies. “Yves later proposed in a B&B in Achel in February 2016. We were getting ready to go out for dinner and then he asked me.”

Shopping for the dress

Lies found her dream dress at wed2b’s Antwerp store. “I heard about wed2b from a neighbour,” she says. “It was amazing. I received good help and we had some laughs that day.”

She chose Ashley by Heidi Hudson, a floaty chiffon style with softly draped sleeves. “t was a very simple dress and completely made for me,” she says. "I liked it most because it was so understated. It made me sparkle and shine.”

A delightful wedding in Belgium

“We both got ready at home with our family with us. The weather was what we wanted. A little sun, but not too hot,” says Lies. “The ceremony was in the beautiful garden under a large oak tree, which we loved. My daddy walked me to the altar and my stepdaughter was my bridesmaid. There was also music by John Legend and many friends and family gave readings.”

“After the ceremony we had a lovely room for the party with elegant wooden floors and doors,” says Lies. “Our first dance was to ‘All of Me’ by John Legend, just because we think it's a beautiful song.”

Stylish blues

“My husband had a blue suit, so we asked everyone to wear a touch of blue,” says Lies. “The theme was ‘ferris wheel’, since we met each other by a ferris wheel. My husband even made a ferris wheel out of wood. We didn't have a big cake but several small cakes, as well as fries later to keep everyone going. There was also a DJ in the evening, too. ”

The best bits…

“I can't pick just one,” says Lies. “Everything was as we wanted it.”

My top tips

“Get a master of ceremonies. This way you don't have to stress.”
