It’s Wedding Wednesday, friends, and now that my daughter’s big day has come and gone (four months ago today!) I can finally share all the details. Today it’s all about the dress. I have to say, helping my daughter find her wedding dress was truly one of the highlights of my life. Lots of tears, for sure but the whole experience was also exciting, not to mention plenty of fun. The dreamy Monique Lhuiller confection she ultimately chose spoke perfectly to the carefully crafted, ethereal aesthetic of the day. Bottom line – she looked gorgeous, her search for the dress of her dreams made less daunting by following the pain-free tips below.

Special thanks to bridal consultant, Lori Mannina, seamstress Teresa and the entire team at Ultimate Bride. Miss seeing you on Thursday nights! xxM
