Maggie Bride: Lauren Stokley

August 21

For Maggie Bride Laurenthe hunt for the perfect wedding dress was on! After clicking through hundreds of dresses for what felt like hours, Lauren spotted Brielle*, and froze. “I called every bridal store in Ohio and only one carried the dress,” she said. “We drove almost three hours to try it on! When we got there, the consultant reminded me that brides normally don’t buy the first dress they try on… But as soon as I stepped into Brielle, I knew it was the one! I bought it on the spot!” See more photos from Lauren’s stunning wedding below!

Dress: Brielle* (Brielle has since been discontinued, but we recommend our Ambrosia gown for a similar fit!)

Favorite part of the dress: “I love that it’s universally flattering and allows the bride to be both womanly and pure. The tight bodice is sexy and slimming and the full, dramatic pick-ups made me feel like I was in the fairy tale wedding I envisioned as a child.”

Favorite wedding day moment: “My husband planned the entire honeymoon and kept it a secret from me and all of our family and friends. My favorite wedding day moment was when he unveiled the honeymoon location at the reception and said we would be headed to Riviera Maya, Mexico in the morning!”

Advice for future brides: “My advice for future brides is to attend bridal shows! Not only does it make you savor every moment of your engagement, but you can also win prizes! We won our party bus, an engagement photo session, hundreds of dollars in restaurant gift cards, a mixer, and our videographer.”
