SO, JESS, WHAT DOES A FASH­ION ED­I­TOR WEAR TO HER WED­DING?

Martha Stewart Weddings - - EDITOR’S LETTER -

When our new fash­ion ed­i­tor, Jes­sica King, got mar­ried, she wasn’t yet work­ing in the bri­dal in­dus­try, so her shop­ping process was prob­a­bly pretty sim­i­lar to yours: “I thought I was go­ing to get mar­ried in a dress I saw in—no joke— Martha Ste­wart Wed­dings. I went to a bri­dal sa­lon, sure it was go­ing to be my dress. I tried it on, and it was hor­ri­ble! It looked so silly, and I al­most felt em­bar­rassed stand­ing there. I was so dis­ap­pointed and thought I would never find what felt right. I took a step back and re­al­ized that in my ev­ery­day life, com­fort is the most im­por­tant thing to me. If I’m not com­fort­able, I’m not happy, and it shows. So I picked an in­cred­i­bly sim­ple white silk-chif­fon Reem Acra dress. I felt light and mag­i­cal—and I could move, I could dance, I could crouch down and give our flower girl a hug. I felt like my most beautiful self, and I was proud to wear it. Eight years later, I would pick the same dress in a heart­beat.”
