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.

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.

“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.”
