Wedding Dresses

While the world may have been buzzing last week in anticipation of Kate Middleton's wedding gown, I had my own pre-Royal Wedding dress dilemma: what to wear to our fabulous Royal Wedding Sleepover? Always a fan of 57Grand's elegant, flowy bridesmaid and bridal dresses, I reached out to co-owner Saukok Chu Tiampo for help. Their bridesmaid line has tons of great, reception-ready options, but I fell in love with their cowl neck charmeuse "Waverly" for its relaxed, glamorous pleating and amazingly soft fabric (pictured on me in Bordeaux, above). After topping it off with Malis-Henderson's gold fascinator, and I felt instantly cocktail hour chic.
