Fall 2011 Wedding Guide

Dresses, Stationery, Cake, and More

monique lhuillier!

Since the engagement, you’ve been drowning in a sea of tulle, lace, and buttercream frosting. Stay afloat with our wedding prep crash course.

Wed Suit
See Monique Lhuillier’s latest looks at Warren Barrón Bridal at a trunk show October 27-29 (R.S.V.P. to 214-526-8400). On October 28 and 29, meet designer Judd Waddell at Patsy’s. Order a dress — styles are big on sweetheart necklines and hip-hugging cuts — and get 10 percent off. Or surf Stanley Korshak’s bridal sample sale with gowns by Angel Sanchez, Kenneth Pool, Jenny Lee, and more slashed up to half off.

bell’invito!New Wave
The Paper Store by Bell’Invito opens Thursday inside Nest. Pick up luxury stationery for thank-you notes as well as I-pezzi, the local label’s latest customizable invitation line. Instead of the weathered guest book, opt for a cool print by Southern Fried Paper and hang it on your art wall after the honeymoon.

Shower Report
Register for Julia B.’s luxurious linens with modern and traditional monogram options (hola, new last initial!) available at Blue Print. Keep it classy for your guy, too, with a silver-plated, personalized koozie. At the engagement party, get a jump on something blue with Uptown Popcorn’s tropical coconut blend or sky-hued bubbly.

cooper bridal!Maid in the Shade
Now introducing Cooper Bridal, a local custom bridesmaid dress biz that lets clients select the style, fabric, and details (pockets, straps, sashes, length, you name it) and turns them out for just $160-$220 a pop. And make sure your pasty pals are tan for photos with Bronze Glow, exclusively at Enlighten.

Now you can rest easy: Your ship’s about to sail.
