Tips for Choosing Your Wedding Week Wardrobe. We spend so much time and attention making sure our wedding day ensemble is perfect we sometimes forget about other events of the week. There will be plenty of photos memorializing you and your fiance at the rehearsal dinner and other get togethers. In the Huffington Post article below, Jennifer Margolin of Style in a Box (http://jennifermargolin.com/services/styleinabox/) gives us seven considerations when choosing a wardrobe for the other-than-wedding-day parties.
Chan / Zuckerberg Wedding Gown, Part 2. Remember the Claire Pettibone wedding gown Dr. Chan wore in her wedding to Mark Zuckerberg? Apparently many others love the elegantly simplistic style as well. BuzzFeed’s Amy Odell interviewed the gown’s designer, Priscilla Chan, who said the salons that carry her design are being inundated with calls.
I love the gown, but I find it a bit humorous how the $4,700 price tag is viewed, depending on one’s perspective. Compared to the wedding dresses celebrities generally buy–gowns worth tens of thousands of dollars–it’s a pittance. Compared to the average bride on a limited budget, that amount may very well represent 50% (or more) of the entire wedding budget! In any case, it’s fun to look, then shop for lower-cost dresses with features similar to those in the designer style.
