If you are currently wracked with nerves trying to decide on what to wear down the aisle, then Lauren’s ‘Say Yes to The Dress’ story will give you hope. This month’s BB Featured Bride looks back and says with a laugh, “I think I tried on every dress in the Tri-State area.” Lauren’s perseverance paid off in the end. Here, she shares the details about her stunning Netta BenShabu gown and personals.

Part 2: Wedding Dress & Personals

New York City’s bridal boutiques are filled with rack upon rack of beautiful fashions by luxury designers from all over the world. Hunting for a wedding dress is exciting and fun – at first. Even the most seasoned shopper can become overwhelmed by the abundance of choices. When asked about her experience, Lauren replies, “Yikes… this was a long process. I tried on more dresses than I care to admit.” Her quest led to Wedding Atelier on Madison Avenue. There, Lauren had encountered a problem of a different kind. “I ended up loving every dress I tried on!” she exclaims. Ultimately, it was a gown by Israeli designer Netta BenShabu that won her heart. “When I put on that dress, I finally knew my search was over.”

When your wedding theme is ‘1940s Oscars Party,’ only a red-carpet worthy dress will do for the occasion. Melanie could have easily been mistaken for a movie star as she made her way into The Suffolk Theater. Here she shares the details about her show-stopping Pronovias gown and bridal personals.

Part 2: Wedding Dress & Personals

It was evident from the beginning that as a couple, Melanie and Nick had a distinct style and their wedding was going to be one-of-a-kind. Perhaps it was this genuine, ‘go with your gut’ approach that made her search for the perfect dress so effortless. Melanie had scheduled two bridal appointments, one in the morning followed by a second in the afternoon. “After trying on and liking a few dresses at the first boutique, I headed to Pronovias in midtown. I knew which gown was going to be mine from the moment I put it on. The decision was so very ‘matter of fact’ that even my Mother-In-Law, who is a very emotional woman, didn’t shed a tear… until the fitting anyway.” She continues, “My mother wasn’t there, so we made a second visit together. My mind was already made up by then and thankfully, she felt the same way.”

Without further ado, here are the most talked about celebrity brides of the season.

Hilary Swank

There isn’t a more perfect setting for an enchanted forest wedding than the redwoods of Northern California. The captivating 800-year old trees served as the backdrop for Hilary Swank and social venture entrepreneur Philip Schneider’s summer nuptials at Saint Lucia Preserve. The actress and producer stunned in a custom Elie Saab Couture gown made of Chantilly lace, silk chiffon, and organza silk (which took a team of seven 150 hours to create!) Her ethereal bridal look was completed by floor length-veil, custom design Christian Louboutin shoes, and a simple bouquet of white blooms and greenery. And yes, that is Mariska Hargarity serving as the bride’s maid of honor.
