A bride wants many things from a wedding dress.

BB Featured Bride Fanta knew she had found ‘the one’ when she stepped into a gown by Martina Liana. “I wanted to feel like a showstopper and my dress did just that!” Here, Fanta reminisces about her ‘say yes to the dress’ moment and bridal personals.

“I don’t think anyone thought I was going to be in a ballgown. I knew I wanted something that was form-fitting, a little bit sexy while also being traditional,” BB Featured Bride Dayna says. With her vision in sight, she set out to find a dress that encapsulated her sense of style – modern, feminine, and sophisticated. Here, Dayna shares all the details about her striking Pnina Tornai gown and personals.

Part 2: Dress, Bouquet, & Shoes

The process of finding a dress was still full of surprises for Dayna. She recalls, “I started pinning dresses right after we became engaged. I’m a shopping addict but trying on wedding dresses was a totally different experience.” Her mother came in from Boston to help and they devoted an entire weekend to the endeavor. The day before her official appointments, they did a trial run, stopping into one store to try on a few looks. “I recommend this to everyone – it was so helpful to see how the different styles looked and felt.”

For this month’s BB Featured Bride Laura, it was love at first sight. “I picked out my wedding dress six months before I was even engaged,” she says with a laugh. “I saw the dress online during New York Bridal Fashion week and immediately knew it was the one for me.” Here, Laura talks about her stunning Oscar de la Renta gown and personals.

Part 2: Wedding Dress and Personals

Laura’s ‘say yes to the dress’ story is the kind we all hope for. After becoming officially engaged, she made an appointment to try on the Oscar de la Renta dress she had been dreaming about for the past year and half. “It was even better in person,” she exclaims. “I tried on a few more options just to do my due diligence, but nothing compared. The dress and all the fittings that followed were by far the easiest and most fun parts of wedding planning!”

“My Grandma is my best friend.” If you read Part 1 where Stefanie talks about getting engaged, you already know how important her Grandma was in initiating her and Mike’s courtship. This was also true when time came for the bride to start looking for what to wear down the aisle – her Grandma was more than happy to step in and move the process along. Here, Stefanie talks about her breathtaking Anne Barge dress and personals.

Part 2: Wedding Dress & Personals
“I wasn’t the type of girl who grew up dreaming of a wedding,” Stefanie says. Her Grandma, however, had been giving a lot of thought to the momentous occasion. “She obsessively watched ‘Say Yes to the Dress,’” Stefanie says with a laugh. “Whenever a dress appeared on the show that she liked, she would hit pause, take a picture of her TV screen and send it to me. And then I would have to research the dress online.” After receiving countless photos this way, one dress finally caught Stefanie’s eye. “When I went into Kleinfeld, I still had NO idea what I wanted but asked my consultant to pull that particular dress my Grandma had sent me. I tried the dress on and knew immediately it was the one for me.”

The Spring 2020 Couture shows just wrapped up in Paris. Peppered throughout many of the collections were some of the most daring bridal looks that we have ever seen. Keep in mind that when creating couture, most designers strive to translate their most lavish and avant-garde ideas into fashion. Thus, the couture bride ignores all sense of tradition and does not play by anyone’s rules but her own. Simply put, the aisle way is her runway.

We thought it would be fun to put expectations aside of what a lady should wear when she says “I Do.” Here, we’ve rounded up the must-see Spring 2020 Couture bridal looks from designers such as Chanel, Givenchy, and Elie Saab. So relax, and take a moment to forget about all the photos your mom keeps emailing of dresses she thinks will “look beautiful on you!”

This past holiday season, a handful of high-profile ladies took advantage of their vacation time by walking down the aisle. From the gorgeous gowns and luxury venues to the floral decor and after parties, each of these stars in the worlds of entertainment and sports made their special day truly remarkable. We are always up for a good celebrity wedding recap and decided to take a look at the famous brides who rang in the New Year by saying “I Do.”

Hilary Duff

Our first famous bride to tie the knot over the holidays is Hilary Duff. The ‘Younger’ actress married singer and record producer Matthew Komas in an intimate ceremony at their L.A. home just before Christmas. The internet was abuzz when Hilary posted photos of her custom gown by Jenny Packham. Simple yet bold, the design featured a fishtail silhouette (100 buttons adorned the back!) paired with structured shoulders and cape-like sleeves. For their at-home nuptials, the couple worked with planner Yifat Oren of Oren & Co and floral design studio Hollyflora to create a romantic, dreamy atmosphere expressed though organic greenery and soft pink, plum, and off-white florals.
