Here comes the bride... Well, almost! You've done your part and voted on all the big day details of Elle Fowler's upcoming wedding. Now it's time for the Youtube beauty guru to get wedding day ready — and she's bringing you along for the ride! Our Brides Live Wedding video series is going behind the veil, following Elle through her journey as a bride-to-be — from wedding dress fittings to makeup trials — and right up to the altar where she'll wed her sweetheart in Santa Barbara, California's Bacara Resort & Spa. Stay tuned — it's almost time for the "I dos!" And don't forget to watch on July 8th to see the wedding day winners you helped choose and watch Elle and her sweetheart tie the knot!
Prepare to go green with envy, because Elle is living every bride-to-be's dream! With the big day just weeks away, this lucky lady flew to the BRIDES New York City headquarters to meet with bridal beauty and fashion experts to get gorgeous for her "I dos." (As if she needed any help...)
First up was Elle's Mary Kay makeup trial with celebrity makeup artist Moani Lee. This beauty vlogger knows what she's doing with the eyeliner and blush brush, so we're sure expectations were high for her bridal beauty test run! You previously voted on what Mary Kay makeup look Elle would rock down the aisle, and the bride-to-be loved them all! (Phew...) "I'm obsessed with it!" she declared after seeing her finished look. Us too, obvi.
Next up, the Youtube celeb headed to the showroom of one of our favorite wedding dress designers Monique Lhuillier — basically the tulle and lace filled fantasy of almost every bride-to-be. There to help her try on some gorgeous gowns was BRIDES Fashion Director Elle Strauss. Our wedding fashion expert's marriage advice to Elle and other brides-to-be? "Make sure you have your own walk-in closet!" You've said it!
Strauss first filled in our bride-to-be on all the latest wedding dress trends that have been dominating the runways, and then it was time to slip into some fabulous frocks. "Do you think this be could be the one?" Strauss asked as Elle glittered in a long-sleeved ball gown with 3D floral appliqués. Well, we'll have to wait till July 8th to see! But one thing's for sure... Her hubby-to-be Alex won't believe his eyes!
