Even though I’m not anywhere near engaged, I’ve tried on a handful of wedding dresses in the last few years, thanks to the Austin Brides Against Breast Cancer Event I modeled for (you can read about it here) and the BHLDN Week Houston Store Tour I did, in which I got to play dress up in some of my BHLDN favorites (read about that here). I’ll confirm this someday when it happens, but I can’t imagine that trying on gorgeous bridal gowns for an event is anything like trying them on for your wedding. There are a few things I’ve been sure to avoid at these events, just because I want to save them for when I’m a bride, and lace is one of them.
I love this shot of a bride in her lace Monique Lhuillier, by one of my favorite photographers, Ali Harper, because I think it captures a lot of what I imagine being a bride could be like–the calm, the anticipation, and of course, the delicate lace. See the full wedding featured on Snippet and Ink.
