Blush Monique Lhullier A-Line Wedding Dress

Lauren wore a Monique Lhullier bridesmaid dress that she ordered from Nordstrom online. “I was having terrible luck at bridal shops, and I was starting to run out of time,” she says. “Every dress felt the same to me, typical, overpriced, too much material, too much to alter and too much pressure. When mine arrived I tried it on with my mom, and we knew it was going to work. It fit perfectly except for the length so my friend Brittany and I literally cut the bottom of the dress off with scissors! Not bad for a $400 dress.” She completed the look with a purple petticoat that she snapped into the dress. “It was my grandmother's who passed away while I was in middle school,” she says. “Her and my grandpa were amazing square dancers and my cousins and I used to play dress up in her outfits. That was really important to have something of hers with me on that day and made everyone remember her in a playful way. She was the ultimate in fun.”
