While everyone has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic globally, those who are on the frontlines have been at the forefront of it all.

In an initiative to give back, bridal brand Espsosa announced last year it would be gifting free wedding gowns to frontline workers.

Nearly nine months on, Esposa revealed to Emirates Woman more than 90 brides-to-be, which includes many doctors and nurses, were gifted free wedding gowns.

Esposa documented a few of the brides’ experiences selecting their dream wedding gowns, which they shared their heartfelt thanks for.

Esposa – a bridal boutique which has stores in Beirut, Dbayeh and Ramleh El Bayda in Lebanon and two stores in Dubai – announced their incredible initiative following the outbreak of the pandemic in March 2020.

“It’s hard not to notice all the sacrifice and risks nurses and doctors are taking nowadays to save our people, while we just stay at home with our loved ones,” Juliana Romanos, CEO of Esposa Group previously told EW. “This is our way to make them smile during their tough days and let them dream about their big day!”

It’s a family-run business headed up Juliana and her sisters Kristie and Jihane Romanos. It was founded in Lebanon by the Romanos family and has been growing steadily for the last 30 years.

The brand offers an exclusive selection of bridal and evening dresses which showcases the works of fashion designers worldwide including Carolina Herrera, Vera Wang, Zuhair Murad and more. They also house their own collection Esposacouture.
