Michelle Dubé from CTV News is getting married! The co-anchor of Toronto’s most-watched newscasts, CTV NEWS AT SIX and CTV NEWS AT NOON, is tying the knot with her Bay Street beau of eight-years on September 21, 2013. We chatted with Michelle for the inside scoop on her big day!
THE PROPOSAL AND PLANNING PROCESS:
Mark, Michelle’s husband-to-be, proposed at the Waldorf Astoria Orlando during a romantic getaway down South. The couple has spent the last year organizing their wedding with the help of friends and family. “I’ve really enjoyed the planning process, and I love how it has brought our families together! My parent’s and Mark’s mom are very excited,” says Michelle.
The pair looked to wedding magazine and online sources like Pinterest and Etsy for design ideas and inspiration -- “WedLuxe included, of course,” says the bride-to-be.
DETAILS OF THE DAY:
Michelle and Mark will be married at a private club in the bride’s hometown of Ancaster, Ontario. The couple will be surrounded by 200 guests, some of whom will be wearing kilts in honour of Mark’s Scottish roots. “One thing we learned is that it’s not a good idea to book a venue before finalizing your numbers!” says the bride-to-be who is still narrowing down her guest list.
The bride will be walking down the aisle in an Allure Couture gown that is covered in Swarovski crystals. Michelle initially wasn’t sure the gown was her style but fell in love with the dress after trying it on. “If there’s one day to look like a disco ball, this is it,” she jokes.
FOS Decor Center will be managing the floral design and decor for the event. Michelle shares that the reception decor will include elements of the groom’s Scottish heritage and classic white floral arrangements.
Guests will be entertained with a video about the couple at the start of the reception (written and produced by the bride), and the bride’s father will perform an original song. “We really want our wedding to be a fun and enjoyable party,” says Michelle.
The couple plans to spend their honeymoon traveling Italy’s Amalfi Coast. They will be departing to Europe a few days after their wedding and It will be the first time in seven-years the hardworking pair has taken a two-week holiday.
