A message from the bride

What was it like when you found "the dress"? Honestly, it was a dream come true. You always dream of finding the perfect dress for your wedding day, but when it actually happens, it feels surreal. 

I went to Saks Bridal and wasn't really falling in love with anything I put on. Everything the bridal expert was bringing me to try on, I was feeling nothing, no spark nothing. When you know, you know! Right!?

Then out of no where, she said "wait one minute, iI have something for you". And there it was. When I first put on my dress, it felt as if Marchesa designed it specifically for me.

Were you inspired by any style icons for your bridal look? To be honest, not really. I love the simple and elegant classy look, so that is what I hoped my bridal look would be.

Any recommendations for brides looking for their glam squad? Find a team that you trust, and a hair stylist and makeup artist that you feel will execute your desired bridal look well. Also, I would highly advise your makeup girl to stay all day, you will need her!

What is your favorite part of your bridal look?: My amazing mom surprised me and got us matching shoes. I loved that she did that, that was a true surprise for me. Not only did it complete my look, but it made it that much more special for me.
