Your wedding dress is one of the most photographed pieces of your wedding day and one the most symbolic outfits you’ll ever wear.
You’re not just choosing a dress, you’re selecting your statement piece as you transition in a new chapter of your life.
So when Ashlee McGeehan, my dear friend and Daytime TV producer asked us to help her choose a wedding dress, we reached out to our favorite Tampa Bay bridal shops, Truly Forever Bridal, Nikki’s Glitz and Glam, and Isabel O’Neil Bridal to style this gorgeous bride-to-be.
An A-line gown complements all body shapes and the sheer illusion paneling in the front adds a hint of cleavage, while English netting and lace and beaded embroidery create a soft and romantic look. Available at Nikki’s Glitz and Glam Boutique
