'Say Yes to the Dress' returned to our screens last night with many heart-warming moments from a young woman preparing for her wedding after many difficult years.
Siobhan Malone appeared on the RTE reality bridal show to find her dream dress ahead of her marriage to Donegal man PJ Mc Barron.
The beautiful Galway woman was a two-time breast cancer survivor who wanted to celebrate the woman she is after being scarred physically and emotionally by cancer.
The honest and funny 35-year-old knew exactly what she wanted, and was quick to tell Peter Kelly aka Franc and bridal consultant Janice O’Leary that she was not a ‘dress person.’
Nevertheless, Siobhan was a picture of elegance when she found her dream gown. After trying four options, she said ‘Yes’ to a stunning ruched detail dress with all the special elements she needed following her surgery and treatment.
“New me, new dress, new style,” Siobhan said, as she celebrated feeling confident, comfortable and secure in the gown.
“I’m looking forward to seeing PJ’s face, and that will be the icing on the cake,” she said.
Siobhan had many kind words to say about her fiancé PJ, who is from Pettigo and recalled how he was always there for her during her illness.
“It was horrible. I told him to walk away. He didn’t. He was my absolute rock through it all,” Siobhan said. “We’ve already done the ‘for better for worse, in sickness and health’.”
Two years on from that trying time, Siobhan and her friends had much to celebrate on the show as she found her ideal dress and looked forward to a happy wedding day.
We wish them all the best!
