All season long, we’ve watched as 90 Day Fiancé stars Rebecca Parrott and Zied Hakimi navigate their way through many a twist and turn in their relationship. Now, the moment has come for the Tunisian native to make the former private investigator, whom he uprooted his life in North Africa for, his bride. While you'll have to wait until Sunday night to watch the duo exchange vows, you can get a sneak peek at their fairytale-like ceremony right now, thanks to an exclusive clip of the episode obtained by Brides.
“Despite the fights, despite the stress, it’s suddenly feeling like I’m a princess, and I’m about to marry my prince,” Rebecca says in the video.
Just like the rest of their union, however, the couple’s wedding certainly isn't without its roadblocks. In fact, as the bride shared with us via email, COVID-19 threw quite a few wrenches in their plans including one big change to Rebecca's gown. “Because no shops were open to buy my dress, I ordered a used one online,” she shared. “It didn’t fit!”
While the reality star was understandably upset over the fashion mishap, she didn’t let it ruin her big day. “I improvised and wore a corset on top,” she said.
The result was certainly no less stunning. “In the dress, she's so sexy,” the eager groom can be seen gushing in the clip. “So happy I have woman like Rebecca, so beautiful.”
Though the twosome had once envisioned a “beautiful beach wedding” to match their swoon-worthy proposal in the Sahara, they got a real-life Cinderella moment instead. Rebecca rode in on white, horse-drawn carriage. “I've never see marriage like this before, only in the TV, the movie,” Zied gushes excitedly. “The carriage, amazing, with the horse!”
As Rebecca explained to Brides, her grand entrance was just one small way to make the service that much more memorable. “We wanted to make our wedding a little more special, since we had so many restrictions due to COVID,” she said.
And from the sounds of things, their love story has only gotten better since. "Zied makes me feel like a princess every day," Rebecca told us. "Life since we’ve married has been incredible. We have fun every day, and we really are best friends. I waited a long time to find him, but it was worth the wait."
The pair, who still plan to have a larger ceremony in Tunisia when restrictions allow, urge other couples who may be facing similar wedding obstacles due to the pandemic to put love first. "Just remember the reason for the wedding, to marry the love of your life," Rebecca advises. "Do simple things that represent your love."
