“A crown seemed like too much for my personality, but then we decided, I’m the bride—why not? and just went for it,” Glara says of her golden headpiece. “We knew a veil wouldn’t fit with the gown.” As for the gown, that was only one of many decisions made jointly by the bride and groom. Glara spotted the dress while on a trip to London but didn’t make a move. Months later, when the real hunt began, she mentioned it to Matthew; when they saw the gown together, he loved it immediately. “It felt ethereal and luxurious to be enveloped by them,” she recalls of its layers of chiffon. And the reception dress? That was also selected with help from the groom. Its formfitting silhouette and sheer cape provided a subtle nod to the costume-centric wedding date.
