Dreaming of the perfect gown for your big day? Or maybe a stunner for the ceremony and something to change into for the reception or late-night getaway? Didn't fall in love with the first one you tried on? Or the second, third, and so on?
That's the exact position Sheena found herself in during her engagement. So how many dresses did she consider? Well, she tried on about 150 dresses total (in Los Angeles, New York, and Charlotte,) during visits to a few different bridal salons like Kleinfeld Bridal, Oscar de la Renta, Reem Acra, and Saks Fifth Avenue.
The fashion lover, who started reading Vogue at age 8, loves high fashion and couture. For her big day, she couldn't wait to wear something that had appeared on a runway. She took her time and tried on all the beautiful gowns that caught her eye. She ventured into the world of non-bridal too, and spotted the ink-print dress from Monique Lhuillier—an artistic twist on a bridal gown she had spied. Though it wasn't technically a wedding dress (it definitely still covered her "something blue"), it was the perfect fit for the ceremony and dinner at her French chateau wedding. One day while shopping with her equally stylish groom, Greg, she came upon a Lanvin dress with a bow on the back and had to give it a shot. A feeling came over her as she was in the fitting room and knew that the all-white frock would be her reception dress.
