Julie's dress presented another opportunity for personalization. "The bodice of my dress belonged to my aunt, whom I'm very close to. She wore the dress in 1995 to her wedding," Julie says. "I had the very poofy, taffeta skirt removed from her gown. I found a Jenny Yoo skirt on clearance at a department store, and I took that and the bodice to Mignonette Bridal in Chicago for alterations."
