It's probably safe to say that a wedding dress claims a spot among the most important outfits a girl will wear in her lifetime. (Also, probs the most expensive. RIP, savings account.) Pressure, much? Not for ultimate fashion girl Hillary Kerr, founder of the überpopular blogs Who What Wear and MyDomaine and a glowing newlywed! After recently walking down the aisle, Kerr is finally opening up about the big day—and finding her dream wedding dress.
Listen up, brides-to-be. If there was ever anyone's bridal style to steal, it's the super-stylish Kerr's. "I only tried on three wedding dresses, and this was the last one and immediate winner," Kerr surprisingly revealed on Who What Wear. So which designer's gorgeous gown stole the crown?
"It's from Reem Acra's Fall/Winter '16 bridal collection, and I knew it was the one from the moment I tried on the sample," gushed Kerr. "The gown's bustier top was incredibly comfortable, and I adored the little lace peplum detail at the waist."
The fashion-forward newlywed also revealed her must-have bridal accessories. (Add these to your shopping list ASAP.) "My clutch and shoes are both Jimmy Choo, with crystal detailing," said Kerr. "I wasn't wearing much jewelry, so I felt like I could have a little sparkle on my accessories." Ugh, teach us your accessorizing ways!
"The skirt was made from insanely gorgeous French Chantilly lace and was surprisingly lightweight, which was important to me," added Kerr. "While I love how a train looks, I knew I didn't want one, as they get stepped on and can be difficult to maneuver in. I just wanted something really easy and unfussy." And obviously gorgeous AF...
But while her Reem Acra wedding dress was clearly the star of the show, it wasn't the only big-day frock Kerr donned that night. The bride also wanted to rock a second dress at her reception—a fabulous, floral-filled party at Colony Palms Hotel, in Palm Springs, California. But that task wasn't without its mini disasters.

"The hardest part of the whole wedding process was finding the right party dress," remembers Kerr. "When my first party dress got stuck in customs, I decided to look for a backup option, just in case." OMG. Deep breaths...
"While my original dress never showed up, the day before the wedding, I tried on a Brandon Maxwell V-neck minidress with a swishy silk skirt, and it fit perfectly, to my shock and delight. I ended up wearing it for the cake cutting and the final hour of dancing, and I loved every second of it."
No matter the frock fiasco (and that one would really send any bride-to-be into a tizzy), obvi a fashion maven would have it all under control.
