Aisle Style: Your Dress, Your Way

Before the "here comes the bride" moment comes endless amounts of coordinating, finalizing contracts, and (my favorite part) dress fittings! It's such an exciting time, even if it's stressful. I have to admit, the dress shopping process for me was a little bumpy and one of the biggest challenges I faced was deciding on a style. There are way too many to choose from. I know that some of you may have had a similar experience, or perhaps you just got engaged and feel overwhelmed by the thought of dress shopping. This is why I wanted to share my personal story with you. I am back on Style Me Pretty today bringing you inside my journey to finding my dream dress. Grab your cup of coffee, because it's a long one!

It's an absolute treat to be able to take you inside my very first fitting with Mark Zunino. Although we are in the beginning stages, I thought it would be fun to take you along with me. This is the corset, or in other words the foundation of my dress. Mark likes to ensure the core fits exactly to each bride's body before he begins producing the rest of the dress. I spent about 30 minutes with Mark discussing my vision and prancing around in my little corset/slip with a sticky note pinned to the front labeled, Jessica Galfo. I've never felt more like a bride then in that very moment. I cannot imagine how I will feel on my wedding day, but for now I'm going to cherish these last fleeting moments leading up to our big day!
