Look.At.This.Dress. Seriously. Amazing. Okay, you can now pick your jaw up off of the floor.
I am also loving the bride’s advice about finding a wedding dress in unexpected places. A wedding dress doesn’t have to be a “wedding dress”, per se. Look for ready-to-wear and off-the-rack gowns – you never know what gorgeous (and unique) dress you may find. This bride found a stunning couture cream Monique Lhuillier gown and went for it …
From the bride:
Per the dress, I knew I didn’t want to go traditional. I wanted to wear something that I hadn’t ever seen before, because for my job, I’m constantly looking in magazines (often Bridal ones) for inspiration. I felt like I had seen everything on the market. Until I tried on my Monique Lhuillier dress. It was a ready-to-wear piece in a natural color, and fit me perfectly. The textural, ethereal quality of the dress sold me. Also, a tip, I was able to save hundreds of dollars in ‘bridal’ alteration fees because the dress wasn’t technically a wedding dress! A nice perk.
