2010 was a magical year for South Africa and for me. I finally tied the knot with my Irishman and I did it in style.

I bought my own dress, so price was definitely a factor. I went to Bride & Co and was fortunate enough to walk in on one of their wedding dress sales. It was an amazing experience. There was a sea of white dresses and (because of the sale) more were in my budget.

The first dress I chose was a beautiful all lace body-hugging number…and I fell in love with it. I took it home and I couldn’t wait to show my parents.

I wore it twice (how very fortunate). We tied the knot legally on our penthouse apartment’s patio overlooking trees and Castle Kyalami. The second time was in Mozambique on the beach with our closest friends and family.

A wedding dress is such a special dress and everyone should feel like a princess in their own.

Enough of me! Enter this fabulous competition on Twitter. @Brideandco RT each “#4 Decades of Oleg Cassini” pic for the next 4 weeks & you could win a dream dress! #4decades https://ow.ly/pN3wa
