Almost one year ago I posted about my wedding gown affair and how I found my DRESS in Midtown NYC at the Amsale flagship store… (for a trip down memory lane click here). Anyhow, I had promised to share pictures from that day and of the dress after the wedding had taken place…
I think the most important thing I learned from shopping for the ideal dress was that the YOU must wear the DRESS and NOT the DRESS wear YOU. So many times I’ve seen gowns that are spectacular that I often forget the details of the bride’s look overall. Thankfully, my mother (my unofficial stylist) embedded this in my head as there were so many beautiful gowns I tried on that were just that – amazing pieces that overshadowed me.
The dress I fell in love with right from the start was a gown from the Amsale-Christos collection. It’s a strapless organza gown with a sweetheart neckline, full skirt with draping and scattered flower petals. The name of the gown, POEME, is ideal because l felt like it literally looked like a poem. It was so romantic, I think its safe to say I’ve never felt prettier then when I had that dress on.
Here’s a picture of me trying on the dress for the first time at the Amsale store in NYC.
For the day of my wedding I went with simple, yet elegant accessories that I felt complimented the dress. My two statement pieces were my earrings and my fascinator for the hair. Although most brides go with small dainty chandeliers, I knew I wanted earrings with movement.
Here are some additional photos from the day of my wedding.
