Sarah Seven's rhinestone-encrusted gown was exactly what we envisioned for our November cover shoot—after all, it wouldn't be the holidays without a healthy dose of sparkle! Even with its glam bodice, the breezy, silk chiffon fabric and empire silhouette made this gown feel effortless. Jennifer Leigh's Swarovski crystal-embellished veil and Anzie's clear topaz drop earrings added extra hits of shimmer, and Amy Merrick's pastel bouquet of dinnerplate dahlias, lace hydrangeas, ranunculus, snowberries and spray roses gave the look a bit of color. Every bride should look like herself on her big day—no matter how formal the wedding—so our makeup artist used natural tones to enhance our cover girl's pretty features, including Mally Beauty's 24/7 Brow Express in Medium Brown, Evercolor Starlight waterproof eyeliner in Kona, Evercolor shadow stick in Rosy Taupe, Volumizing mascara in Black, 24/7 Illuminating Blush in Pink Glow, and High Shine liquid lipstick in Starburst.
