Who is your favorite bridal designer besides yourself?
I love anything Elie Saab creates and I have recently been introduced to the gorgeous designs of Yaki Ravid.
What are the hottest trends brides should be looking for in wedding gowns for Fall and Winter?
You’ll see an increase in the lace trend and the peplum trend. I think you’ll see more feminine, romantic styles with lots of illusion details and a variety of sleeves or straps.
What are some of the most common mistakes brides make when picking out a wedding dress?
1. Choosing a style that does not work for their body type.
2. Trying on dresses that are out of their budget range.
3. Bringing too many people to their gown appointments.
4. Waiting too long to start looking.
5. Trying on WAY too many dresses. 20 is way too many. You will just confuse yourself.
