ALL ABOUT THE DRESS

Martha Stewart Weddings - - THE PLANNER -

Ali­son knew she wanted a ball gown— in a space as grand as her wed­ding venue, a dress with pres­ence is all but re­quired. She vis­ited salons with her mom, maid of honor, and a brides­maid in tow, and “I’ve never had such an en­joy­able ex­pe­ri­ence try­ing on clothes!” she gushes. It was her friend Kelly who spot­ted the Os­car de la Renta gown with iri­des­cent hand-sewn lace that she ul­ti­mately chose (from an­other bride’s “no” rack!). Though her mom en­cour­aged her to think it over, “I knew that was it,” says Ali­son. “It felt very unique. I loved the lace, the train, and the sweet­heart neck­line. I never se­cond-guessed it.”
