A message from the bride

What was it like when you found "the dress"? I knew I had found THE DRESS, the moment I put mine on and didn't want to take it off! Interesting enough, I always imagined myself as a ball gown bride, but when I put my dress on, I immediately fell in love with the fit of it.

Every detail on every part of the dress was beyond. It was different than your typical bridal dress, yet it still had the bridal look I wanted. It literally had my name written all over it!

Were you inspired by any style icons for your bridal look? My bridal look was inspired by my dress! As soon as I put the dress on, I already had an idea of how I wanted to look walking down the aisle. However my veil was inspired by Lebanese brides, I figured if I'm not wearing a big ball gown, I might as well wear a completely hand beaded veil.

Any recommendations for brides looking for their glam squad? Don't hesitate to go by your usual artists, they know you best. There are certain artists that are known for they're bridal expertise, if you are interested in them do a bridal trail for your engagement shoot! That way it will also give you an idea of what your glam will look like on you're special day.

What is your favorite part of your bridal look?: I was very pleased with my whole look! I think every detail played a big role in my complete bridal look. My glam was everything I imaged and more, but if I had to pick only one it would have to definitely be my dress!

Did you try to match your bridal style with your wedding reception style? Yes, definitely. I think your wedding reception style enhances your bridal look. The hardest part is picking a wedding theme, once you decide on one, it plays a huge factor in all your decisions. You have to coordinate everything around your bridal look, because it's going to surround you throughout the day. Especially the reception style, you want to be surround by colors/decor that complement your look. Most importantly your head table, you want to make sure it looks like it was designed just for you on that special day!

Advice or Recommendations for brides planning their wedding? Stay cool, calm & collected (haha!) much easier said than done, of course! Planning you're wedding should be fun, get creative and enjoy every detail.

It does get overwhelming if you try to control everything, hire vendors you can trust, then let your vendors know what you want and just let them do they're thing.
