Friday Favorite: Fairytale Wedding Dress…Aracella

You've found the man of your dreams, now it's time to find your fairytale wedding dress. Look no further than today's gown spotlight, Aracella, from our Maggie Sottero Aracella collection. Elegant glamour is found in this stunning ball gown, featuring a voluminous tulle and organza skirt, with sparkling Swarovski crystals at the waist. Whether you choose high-volume waves or cascading tendrils, a soft, romantic wedding hairstyle complements your fairytale wedding dress. A smoky eye is the perfect beauty look for a romantic wedding day, but don't go overboard with dark hues. Instead, opt for a neutral palette... Gold, pale brown, and nude colors that make your eye the focal point. Apply a rosy pink blush on the apples of your cheeks, and swipe lips with a subtle, rose gloss. What do you think of this fairytale wedding dress? Want to see more gowns like Aracella? Stay tuned... We're heading to New York City for Bridal Fashion Week, where we're sharing our newest collection. Stay tuned to our social media pages for the latest looks, behind the scenes sneak peeks, and more!

You've said your "I Dos", and hopefully, you and your new hubby have had some time to relax and bask in the newlywed glow. It's easy to forget about the post-wedding checklist, but those straggling items are just as important as your pre-wedding checklist. Read our post-wedding to-do list to help you finish up those last minute tasks!

1. Freeze the top layer of your cake - or set a reminder in your phone to order a new cake, one year from now.  Known as an omen for good luck, this wedding tradition will let you and your spouse relive one of the most special moments you've shared together. Didn't save the top layer of your cake? Order a similar, smaller cake for your anniversary.

2. Have your wedding day attire cleaned. Take your wedding dress to the dry cleaner to be professionally cleaned and preserved. If your groom bought his suit or tuxedo, take those as well.

3. Vendor thank you notes and online reviews. Now that your wedding day has passed, it's time to thank those who made it special ... including your vendors. Write a short thank you note expressing your gratitude, and remember to submit online reviews sharing your experience.

4. Deliver thank you notes to your bridal party. From the initial wedding planning sessions to the moment you walked down the aisle, your attendants stood by your side and helped make your wedding day special. Share your appreciation with them with a hand-written thank you note.

5. Complete thank you notes for gifts. While it seems like thank you notes are endless, gift thank yous are an absolute necessity. Set aside thirty minutes each day, turn our your favorite playlist, and you'll be done before you know it.
