"I love the vibe of Elizabeth Fillmore's gowns. They have an ease to them that really appeals to me. Elizabeth designs sheath gowns with really amazing details. They are romantic, feminine and whimsical. Many of the women who come into my shop opt for Elizabeth's gowns because they are beautiful, but not too serious." Read real brides' reviews here!

"Head chains are my obsession these days. I actually wore one on a date with my husband recently and felt like a rockstar all night!"

"Many of my brides opt for a sparkly sandal because it's fun and they can wear it again after the wedding. I recommend selecting something relatively comfortable if possible."
