Say yes to the Dress… Only happens on TV?

10 Sep

After a long and hard search for the dress that would WOW me. I went to every Wedding Salon in the NYC area. Mainly to see what looked good on me but mostly just to do it for “the story”, “the snapchat”, the “I went to try on  at Monique today”. My mother had enough of me tryingg to get her all emotional with every dress I walked out with because they were all just starting to become ugly and the same. I ended up making one at Karen Sabag Couture. THE BEST!! 

Her mama made my sisters dress (6 years ago) and it was oh so fabulous.

Now, I know 24 isn’t old to get married but I’m also not 18 anymore so I couldn’t technically think I was a princess and wear that massive type dress. but guess what, I DID (mainly because my mother said “it needs to be huge” and because I always wanted a long train). SO, I wore a huge massively big heavy 50 yards of double sided satin princess wedding gown. 

I designed it with my mother as well as Karen herself.

Here are some pics (some slightly awkward selfie faces) of some of the process.. (minus the corset pictures with no pants on)
