The fashion bride went dress shopping with her mother and bridesmaids—but they didn't know it yet. She waited until after she found The One to ask her 'maids over for a champagne toast in the bridal salon.
The winning dress? A geometric print lace gown by Vera Wang! "The dress had long sleeves, a very low back, and a plunging neckline," she says. "All three were a must for me." Nicole paired the stunner with earrings (that didn't take away from the gown's neckline), gunmetal YSL heels, and a 15-foot long veil (also by Vera) that made her "feel like a princess."
