The bride wore the Sky Between the Branches wedding dress, which features an illusion neckline and matte sequins. According to Women's Wear Daily, the designer "was besieged with phone calls Sunday and Monday from buyers looking for the $4,700 laser-cut floral gown." Her website picked up 26,000 unique visitors Monday; an average day sees around 1,500 uniques.

I think No. 2 is my fave!

p.s. Claire had NO idea Priscilla picked her dress before she saw photos! (This makes me like Priscilla even more, because it means she wasn't shmoozing for a free dress, which plenty of people would do in her shoes!)

I am sure that the designer here paid big money to get this blurb in MSN. What is tacky, pointless, idiotic is the petty, catty and ultimately stupid remarks that form the text.

Pricilla Chan Zuckerberg is a beautiful woman enjoying the greatest day of her life and this bunch of Pomeranians who want attention and to show off their bridal gowns are despicable.,

I love #4....I think it's my favorite...though I find all of them very tasteful & delicate.  If only other designers could learn from this.

    Fashion trends not to try on your wedding day

    If diamonds are a girl’s best friend, then fashion is the close friend who completes her circle. Style is unique to each and every one of us, but trends come and go to serve as fun ways to spice up our everyday looks or ways to try out something altogether new and bold. Even bridal wear captures trends each season (hello crop tops!), but brides to be must remember that just because it is being sold, does not mean that it is meant to be worn on one of the most important days of your life. This summer, fashion has a slew of great seasonal fads, but most of them just do not work for a wedding. If you’re on the fence about how trendy to be for your wedding day, here are five pieces to avoid during your wedding festivities.

Herewith, the 10 pieces she suggests picking up now (plus chic ideas for how to start incorporating them into your current closet).

  • How often you should get a pedicure

    All your beauty timing questions answered

    Maybe this sounds familiar: You fall in love with a sweet new face scrub and love it so much that you use it, oh, every day. Morning and night. Until your skin breaks out in protest.

It's not just which products you choose—but how often you deploy them. Here’s a quick rundown of how frequently you should be doing various at-home treatments.
