"I couldn't find a yellow bridesmaid dress I liked, so I had the same seamstress who altered my gown, create the bridesmaids' dresses," says Emily.

Emily completed her vintage look with her mother's cathedral-length, lace-trim veil. Her mom, aunt and grandmother all wore the same lace headpiece Emily wore. Its special origin: Belgian nuns gave the headpiece to Emily's great-grandfather who was hospitalized during WWI.
