Ladies…LADIES. This dress almost brought a struggle tear to my eye. I say this because this dress is a dream come true. This week, in honor of my upcoming appointment with Wonderland Bridal, I am featuring this beauty from Stella York’s Everybody Everybride collection.
First, let’s dive into the beautiful Luxe satin finish throughout the entire gown. It looks like my favorite pajamas and probably feels like my favorite teddy bear. The ruched bodice with semi-sweetheart neckline hugs the curvy bride in all the right places without accentuating all the wrong ones.
But the best is yet to come….
The. dress. has. POCKETS!
Before the judgment begins, understand that any dress with pockets makes me giddy, but a Wedding Dress? GENIUS! I mean, think of all the options; I can keep my phone with me instead of depending on folks who then lose it during the day. Or, I can keep a snack in case I get a bit peckish. (yes, snacks…don’t act like you wouldn’t smuggle some goldfish crackers to tide you over.) Aside from all that, the design is flawless. These fabulous pockets are hidden effortlessly within the pleated skirt while the back of the dress has a traditional train and zipper covered by satin buttons.
All in all, this will be my FIRST request to try on at Wonderland…I absolutely cannot wait.
