Finding a dress can prove to be a difficult task for any bride-to-be, even those who have had wedding dreams since childhood. “I am not the best shopper,” Heather says with a laugh. “And I had no idea how to look ‘bridal’ without looking like I was wearing my Grandmother’s crochet.” Any fears of looking like a lace handkerchief were quickly put to rest during a visit to Kleinfeld Bridal. Here, Heather talks about her breathtaking Pronovias dress and bridal personals.

Part 2: Wedding Dress & Personals

With no clear idea of what to wear down the aisle, Heather enlisted the people whose opinion she trusted most for guidance. Everyone met for her appointment at Kleinfeld and Heather explained what she wanted and didn’t want to the stylist. After trying on about eight dresses, she had her “say yes to the dress” moment. She looks back, “As soon as I put my leg in the gown, I knew it was ‘the one.’ I felt like myself. When I walked out of the dressing room, they all confirmed what I already knew. And that was it!”

No other flower expresses the essence of summer like the sunflower. Whether they are standing tall in a field or arranged in a vase at home, they bring brilliance and joy to any scene. It comes as no surprise then that this bloom is a favorite among couples getting married between late summer and early fall. They symbolize ‘loyalty’ and ‘adoration’ – qualities you definitely want around on a day celebrating love and commitment. While the sunflower tends to be associated with ‘rustic’ and ‘country’, it certainly works with other styles ranging from whimsical to elegant. From stunning bouquets to eye-catching centerpieces, here are beautiful sunflower wedding décor ideas.

It goes without saying, flowers top our list of favorite things. Jewelry ranks in at a close second. And any opportunity to talk about the two together gets us excited. The symbolic rose or unique form of an orchid make truly remarkable designs for the earrings, necklace, or headpiece which a bride wears on her special day. From statement gems to understated pieces, here are beautiful floral inspired bridal jewelry to suit any style.

Necklaces

Compliment your wedding dress neckline with a gorgeous necklace. Renowned French jeweler Cartier first used the orchid motif in 1925 to highlight delicate femininity. Made of 18k pink gold with a white diamond, this exquisite necklace feels classic, yet modern. Make a glamorous statement with a necklace of dazzling crystal floral clusters. This Y-shaped diamond flower lariat would look amazing with a bohemian gown featuring a dramatic V-neck.

When Heather first met Amos the Thursday before Memorial Day in 2008, she knew there was something special about him. “I work in the spirits industry and was doing a tasting in the Hamptons during the holiday weekend. I told him that in order for us to have a first date, he would have to get himself a hotel room out there. Finding a hotel in the Hamptons around Memorial Day is near impossible, especially on such short notice. But, somehow, he did it! That really gave me insight into the kind of person Amos is.”
