Libby, we're engaged. Help!
After you say yes, where do you start? While we've all got our day-to-day style on lockdown, we might not be so adept at styling ourselves for, let's say, the most important day ever. For style starters, Libby's got three tips to follow. After that, drop her a line at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a time to chat all about you and your event of the moment.
We're having a blast, but we want to stay on track. A cheat-sheet please!
Libby knows how easy it is to get wrapped up in the fun and forget that there's really a goal—and a deadline! Here are her favorite do's and don'ts for staying on track.
Okay, just cut to the chase. Where do we start looking?
"My favorite Chicago spot for designer gowns is Belle Vie Bridal Couture and Vera Wang Chicago on Oak Street, they have impeccable service and a gorgeous selection. Have fun!" If you want a traditional wedding gown without the price tag, your dress might be closer than you think. "Nordstrom's Wedding Shop has a lot of great traditional options, plus here you can shop for the whole wedding party at once!"
Belle Vie Bridal Couture, 34 East Oak Street; 312-751-2222. Nordstrom, 520 North Michigan Avenue (at Grand Avenue); 312-379-4300.
But our wedding is in a month! Can we speed things up a bit?
Of course! Libby's got great ideas for the insta-bride. "Try Net-A-Porter for looks from major designers. You don't have to totally break the bank here, and it's arguably one of the best places to find a fashion-forward look." If you want something extra unique, try Etsy. "The beauty behind Etsy is that all items are either handmade or vintage." A.K.A one-of-a-kind. We like that.
