Angela’s Getting Married!
Congratulations! Angela Bilella, who worked for our sister publication engagement101, got married to her fiancé Mark Fantin. Here is what she has to say about her wedding style.
” I fell in love with the sophisticated Lazaro gown on weddingdresses.com and figured I would try it on just to see. As soon as I put it on I fell in love with the fit; how it looked like the mesh beaded top was tucked into the mermaid skirt, how the top almost looked like a tank top but way more fancy. It was the only mermaid gown I tried on, and the style was like no other I saw that day. The gown matched my NYC loft style venue; it was fresh and stylish yet sexy and classy. I felt like a 40′s movie star, perfectly accessorized with my grandmothers earrings pined in my hair to look like a barrette. I also loved the detail of the bodice and the belt, which I matched with my Benjamin Adams peep toe heels.”
The groom, Mark Fantin, chose a custom tuxedo for the best style and fit. The style was classic, single breasted with peaked lapels and a black bow tie, cummerbund and braces.
“I chose the Dessy gown for my bridesmaids because I wanted something that would flatter their shapes individually, and allow them to wear different styles. The eggplant gown was not only comfortable, but my girls were able to wear the twist tops however they pleased. They were elegant yet super comfy, and I know they will be able to wear them again.”
