Bride Of The Year: Miss Turkey Sıla Çakır
Our #DovitaBride of the year is the beautiful Miss Turkey Sıla Çakır, who wore a custom Dovita design on her special day. Staying true to their own unique style, Sila and her fiancé celebrated this new chapter in their life with an outdoor wedding at Four Season Hotel Bosphorus surrounded by family and friends. In the following interview, Sıla shares with us how she created her dream to dress us. As told by Sıla:
How did he propose?
We were taking photos in front of the Eiffel tower during our trip to Paris, France and my fiance got down on one knee and brought out the ring and asked me to marry him! I was so shocked I cried hysterically for about 5 minutes before even thinking to put the ring on!
How did you start planning your wedding? What were the first steps?
I had been following Dovita Bridal for over a year already because I had come across their dresses and knew if I ever got married one day, this is where I want to get my dress. I woke up the first day on the trip and Dovita Bridal posted the most beautiful dress that day. I couldn’t wait to get home to call so I snuck outside and called their Istanbul store to make an appointment.
How did you find your perfect dress?
I found you really don’t know what kind of wedding dress is best for you until you try some on. I had a certain dress saved for months and was so excited to put it on that day. There is a dress that is perfect for everyone.
How was your experience with the Dovita Bridal brand?
My experience with Dovita Bridal was a dream. I was so excited on my appointment day, I came in and was introduced to the designer of Dovita Bridal. I immediately felt comfortable and connected to her and she was an angel throughout the whole process. As I tried dresses on I learned that 1. I am super picky and difficult, and 2. I liked the top of a particular dress and the bottom of another. They let me know I could create a custom dress unique to me and my wedding day.
What advice would you give to all our future brides?
I would say to vocalize everything you would like from the beginning and make sure you’re truly comfortable in your dress, but also to trust this company because they are the best and really know what they’re doing. For me, no other wedding dress company compared to the quality and design of Dovita.
