Can't get enough of Bride Wars

To continue a little more on our last blog, we just loved the newly engaged best friends (Liv) Kate Hudson and Emma's (Anna Hathaway) dresses.

They always shared a dream of marrying at the famous Plaza Hotel in New York City. Their wedding plans are similar, however their styles are completely different.

Lawyer Liv favors designer pieces in neutral and muted tones for a classic, streamlined look, while school teacher Emma mixes and matches vintage clothing with colorful accessories.
Liv, in the top right photograph, is wearing a Vera Wang classic tulle wedding dress. The idea for her dress was that she was the iconic bride-the bride on top of the wedding cake.
School teacher Emma's taffeta dress, which was also designed by Vera Wang, had a soft, feminine feel. It was constructed to look as if it was passed down from Emma's mother. Even though they are best friends, they are very different people. This dress is something that looks timelessly romantic.

Top 10 Advice on finding the DRESS!

  • Number One Rule: Be open minded! What you think reminds you of your grandmother's dress on the hanger, may in fact be the dress of your dreams.
  • Bring someone that knows your style better than their own. I'm sure the groom doesn't want to see you in something that your bestfriend would wear on her wedding day
  • DON'T PURCHASE YOUR DRESS ONLINE! You miss out on the whole experience.
  • Don't worry what the groom will think. If he loves you, he will love what you pick.
  • Have fun! Remember that you have been dreaming of this day since you were five. Don't let the decision put a cloud over your head
  • If you hate the little bow on the dress, ask the consultant if you can order it Chances are you can. Keep in mind (contrary to what the magazines always say) there might be a charge for it. It won't lower the cost of the dress.
  • Price vs. Love: If you love the dress, GO FOR IT! Don't settle for less on what your wearing for your big day. You can always take some of the budget from the centerpieces and so on. No one will know and we won't tell.
  • Research designers online and make a scrap book of styles that you like. Do keep in mind, that it may all change when you start trying on.
  • Save the group shopping for the mall. This should be a personal experience that you should only share with one or two.
  • When you find it, you find it. Don't second guess yourself or you will pick your second favorite.
