Meet Mara (Tati) Perez

Mara (Tati) Tati Perez is our bride-to-be, proposed to by her fiance while they were in Paris. Although born in Venezuela, this 27 year old graphic designer grew up in Miami and considers herself a Miami girl at heart, complete with the “Miami attitude”. Right now Tati is the heaviest she’s ever been, and claims to gain weight when she’s happy, calling them “happy pounds”.

Besides her fiance, make-up is Tati’s passion and she hopes it will turn into a full-time career, even though she’s intimidated by all the beautiful and skinny people she is surrounded by in the make-up industry. And that’s one reason why she’s passionate about losing weight. Typically a positive upbeat person, Tati has stopped going to social events because regular clothes don’t fit her anymore, let alone her dream wedding dress.

Tati loves the idea of completely changing her life. As a size 6-8 when she met her fiance, who is not overweight, Tati wants to leave her size 18-20 behind and walk down the aisle in style in a beautiful wedding dress… and say her “I Do’s” feeling beautiful from the inside out, and that’s something she can’t “make-up”.
