About Etydria's experience at Luv Bridal San Diego, California

"I love this place and the people! They always made me feel loved, and cared for. They put my needs first. I truly felt special. I want to give a special shout out to my stylist!!! She knew exactly what I wanted and found the perfect dress. She had lots of patience and incredible feedback. Lovely human. I trust her completely."



About Etydria and Ethan's Luv Story


"We met in Seattle WA. I was studying at UW and he was working in tech. After 4 years, a pandemic, our first house, and a fur baby, he proposed in NYC. Our wedding took place in my hometown. We choose emerald green and terracota as our colors. Our friends and family traveled from Seattle, Maryland, San Diego, and Florida to be with us and share in our happy moment.
My ring is an emerald, I have never really liked white as a color. That was also an issue for my dress, I really didn't want white. I love color: the brightness and the happiness that they make me feel. So we picked green to remind us of the vibrant life we have in Washington. Decor had to be lively too, and terracotta would match giving it a warm feel. The wedding was elegant yet fun and warm. We had a church ceremony and then moved to the venue. Guests were treated to Mariachi and typical Mexican food. Once inside we had a three course meal. Donuts and bunuelos (mexican pastry) were given as dessert. There was a live band, more food and a photo booth for our guests to enjoy."




Etydria wore AETHRA by Pronovias with a detachable tulle skirt

"I had tried different boutiques and the person helping me would pick the dresses themselves based on what I said, but they always brought me the opposite. Here I could pick the dresses I wanted to try and get help from the stylists. My personal stylist really got to know me and suggested this beautiful dress that made me feel beautiful, like a queen. I had also mentioned a skirt and she brought one exactly like the one I had imagined."





Etydria's Advice for Future Luv Brides


"Trust your gut. If the dress is not what you imagined, keep looking. You want to feel like you are the most gorgeous person in the world that day."
