Dress Envy: Tamra of Ever Swoon


Dress Envy posts are always some of my favorites to write, and starting this week, I’m so excited to bring a fun little twist to the series! Over the next few weeks, instead of my usual favorite dresses, I’ll be sharing the wedding dresses of some of my favorite bloggers. These ladies are some of the sweetest, most stylish brides out there, and I know you’ll love seeing their dresses and reading their stories as much as I have!

To kick things off in a truly sparkling fashion, here’s Tamra from Ever Swoon! Tamra is not only a wonderful blogger, she’s also the owner of her own boutique event planning and styling business in New York City. If anyone has style, it’s this girl. I’m so happy to have her, and her gorgeous Oscar de la Renta, on Something Pretty today!

My dress is Oscar de la Renta, purchased at Mark Ingram Bridal.

I knew my dress was the one when…my consultant at Mark Ingram Bridal called me and told me she had found the one!  I immediately had a feeling about it and went in to see it.  At that appointment, I first put on a Monique Lhuillier gown that I loved at my previous appointment and couldn’t stop thinking about.  Then they brought out the Oscar de la Renta gown that they called me about and I just swooned!  I continued to swoon after I put it on and I soon realized, I loved them BOTH!! I quickly realized what I needed to do, so I tried on both dresses again and thought of my husband.   Which one would my husband pick for me?  The answer to that question was completely clear, Oscar. I had two Oscars walking with me down the aisle: my Dad and my dress. What a fairy tale!

My favorite thing about my dress was…how I felt in it. I’ve never felt so confident before.

I accessorized my dress with…sparkling Christian Louboutin Heels, a Swarovski crystal belt, diamond chandelier earrings from Marisa Perry, and hair accessories–a crystal “M” for Michael and feathers.

Thank you so much, Tamra!
