This week we spoke with Terri, one of our fabulous stylists at Lovely New York. With her funky fun style, she’s the perfect stylist to help you put your wedding ensemble together! She tells us about her dream dress, how she would style her own wedding, and her tips for shopping for your own wedding dress.
Tell us a little bit about yourself:
A Miami a girl in a New York World. Love fashion design, the beach, and dancing to salsa and house music.
What is your go to outfit for a night out in NY?
I love to wear one of my designs that I’ve created in Fashion School here in NYC. The last one I’ve made was a gold lace flutter back shift dress, made with crinkled silk charmeuse and brocade fabrics.
What is your favorite dress in the store and how would you style it?
I just love the Kira dress by Hayley Paige. I love how fun, flirty and sophisticated it is. The Paige belt by Untamed Petals is a must for this dress, as well as the Dulce Veil. That veil surely appeals to the tiered look of Kira.
What is your favorite thing about working at Lovely?
I love the possibilities that each designer brings to each bride. Each dress has her own unique personality, and it’s just simply me that becomes the dress’ matchmaker. Every dress has her own bride too!
Describe your dream wedding:
I would love to have an amazing wedding at twilight, right when the sun sets, overlooking the ocean, whilst feeling the cool breeze. The hues of the room are purple and pink, with crystal chandeliers twinkling happily amongst my well dressed guests. The music is impeccable, as I have hand selected my favorite DJ, Kaskade, and I will eat all that I want, in fashion- of course.
Any tips for the bride to be?
Shop with the few that actually care about your opinion. Be determined in knowing what you like, and never settle for what you don’t like. You know that it’s your dress, when you feel in love and you don’t want to take it off. It’s the feeling that you get of falling in love with an outfit all over again.

Alicia and Brian’s Los Angeles wedding at Marvimon was such a dream! From the lush greenery to the pop of red in the florals, everything was sophisticated, elegant, and modern. We asked the bride to tell us some of her favorite details about the day and why she chose her fabulous Watters gown.
Tell us about THE dress and what inspired your look.
I knew I wanted something simple and feminine. When I saw it I fell in love instantly with the sheer lace top, embroidered beading, and plunge back. I loved the way the layers of the skirt flowed when I moved and the how the amaretto colored slip gave the perfect nude peak-a-boo color underneath. What sealed the deal was how comfortable and light it was! It was love at first sight.
What were the most important details to pulling off your dream wedding?
It was definitely incorporating goofy and fun details into the wedding that made it so us. For example we have a weird love for all things bunny rabbits, so there were gold bunny table numbers and ceramic rabbit people as our cake topper. There were napkins with fun facts like “Sharks eat people for fun” because if you know Brian, you know that he is convinced that if he goes in the water, a shark is going to find him. We had movies we love playing in the background – Moulin Rouge during dinner, and Tron during the dance party and also handed out glow sticks, blinky light glasses and foam light sticks. We love a great party!
What was the most memorable moment?
For both of us, it was when I walked down the aisle. We played our song, “Such Great Heights” by Iron and Wine, and walking past all the important people in my life was incredible. Plus we had left noise makers like little trumpets, cow bells, tambourines, and maracas on the chairs and everyone was going crazy with them as I walked! It was so cool!
If you could give future brides any advice, what would it be?
Plan your wedding like a big party! We have an annual Halloween Party every year and our goal is for people to have a great time with friends and family and we planned our wedding with the same idea, just with a lot more people invited. It made the planning a little less stressful
