The countdown is officially on for Bonnie Ryan as the Irish influencer revealed she has picked up her dress ahead of her big day. The bride-to-be is set to jet off with family and friends over the coming week as she gets married abroad to her longterm love, John.
Sharing her excitement on social media Bonnie posted a snap of her collecting her dress, which we can’t wait to get a glimpse of! Captioning the snap she said; “Got the dress!! Special day. Getting close….”
Although Bonnie and John had their legal wedding here in Ireland a few weeks ago they are soon heading off for their official big day very soon.
We caught up with Bonnie for our wedding supplement, Vows earlier this year and she spoke to us about the big day, her gorgeous dress, family excitement and how her late dad Gerry will be remembered during the ceremony.
Chatting to us about the dress she said; “Before trying anything on, I was browsing Pinterest and one dress stood out so I found a place in Ireland that stocked it. It was the first dress I tried on, I went out to show my mom and Lottie and they immediately started crying… I knew it was the one.”
“When I put it on, I felt really special and comfortable. I tried on about six others that day because I wanted to be 100 percent sure, but nothing felt the way my one did. We customised it a little bit and Paula in Tamem Michael has been a dream to work with. I’m so excited to wear it.”
Speaking about what she’s most looking forward to on her big day she said; “I’m very excited to just walk down the aisle and see John for the first time. I think that’s going to be so special. We’ve been on such a journey together.”
“We’ve been together since we were so young, he’s my best friend and he’s been there for me through everything in my life. I feel like we might just start laughing when we see each other. I work in weddings doing bridal makeup and the mornings are so much fun so I’m excited to have that experience with my girls, to drink champagne and have some music playing while we get glam.”
Continuing she added; “I really enjoy doing my own makeup so I feel on the morning it’ll be almost therapeutic to do my own glam. It relaxes me. My hairdresser, Danielle Whelan from The Space, will doing everyone’s hair though and she’s fab. There’ll be lots of special moments throughout the day, but they’re the two I’m particularly looking forward to. “
