First things first: I'm not your typical bride. Girly stuff doesn't particularly thrill me. Take the proposal, for instance: My then-boyfriend, Rassi, asked, "What are you doing for the rest of your life?" in an English cow field. I had on my mom's North Face fleece and a pair of cutoffs — hardly my best look. I knew I'd have to shelve the tomboy habits for my wedding day. The pressure for a bride-to-be is immense enough as it is — but working in fashion, it gets magnified a thousand percent. Knowing that the industry's best and brightest would be watching (and judging) was enough to make me want to elope! That is, until I realized I could use those same style geniuses to my advantage — and yours, too.
"Avoid selecting your dress too early and trying it on too often. You risk having many changes of heart. Three months is ample."
"Take the one person whose opinion you value most with you to your fitting. Keep in mind that your best friend or your mother may not be the best choice." - Georgina Chapman & Keren Craig, Designers, Marchesa
