When it comes to weddings, what we really want to know about are the pretty details like the dress, shoes, and jewelry, and all those personal touches a bride adds to make her wedding day extra meaningful! This week we spoke to our featured bride Marianna about all the care that went into picking her gorgeous Vera Wang gown!

Part 2: Gown & Personals

When we asked Marianna about saying yes to the dress, she told us, “I knew I wanted a classic Vera Wang sweetheart ball gown. I only tried on four dresses, and the last dress was the one I went with. I immediately fell in love with the classic design and long bridal train. I knew it was the perfect dress because I felt like a princess.” Not many brides-to-be have it this easy in the hunt for a wedding dress. But take just one look at Marianna wearing her breathtaking Dagmar gown by Vera Wang and you can tell that it was meant to be. She completed her bridal attire with a sweeping cathedral veil, also from Vera Wang’s Iconic Wedding Collection.

Gorgeous Decor Ideas With Anemone Wedding Flowers

As one of our favorite wedding flowers of the season, we thought it would be nice to feature the anemone as the first BB Bloom in Spotlight for 2018. With its striking, black center and delicate petals, it’s no wonder brides choose to incorporate the anemone into wedding floral decor. And as designers, we love this bloom’s versatility. From simple and classic to whimsical garden to romantic elegance, the anemone can be used in just about any style of wedding. It offers a spectrum of pretty colors ranging from crisp white (the most popular) and blush to purple, burgundy, red, and pink.

Make A Checklist

The average engagement lasts 16 months. You won’t have an exact date set in stone until you confirm a venue, but it’s smart to have an idea of which month/season in which you want to get married. From there, you can work out a checklist with a timetable to make sure important things like making a guest list, choosing your bridal party, and securing vendors are taken care of.
