Monique Lhuillier Bridal Gown

"I must have tried on 100 dresses," Dawn says. "I had narrowed it down to two that had the same shape and style. Both fully beaded, sleeveless and trumpet style. In the end, I went with the Monique Lhuillier. It has five layers of different shades of whites and tans. I thought each layer brought everything together."
