The dress: Marisa

Dresses tried on before finding The One: "Literally tried on 50-plus, no joke. Sometimes I wonder if I really loved the dress or just got tired of trying things on."

The story: "I love feminine details, and this dress had both beautiful lace and asymmetrical layers of chiffon draping from one side down. It was comfortable enough to dance all night in, too — a very important feature."

Something old, something new...: "A clutch that was given to me by a friend years ago was my something old. New was Jimmy Choo shoes. Borrowed was the handkerchief my sister used on her wedding day, and blue were Alexis Bittar earrings."

Where the dress is now: "After a year and a half, I still haven’t done anything with it — in fact, it’s been sitting at my parents' house since the wedding and my mom has been hinting at me to do something with it for months now. I hate that it goes to waste after one wear, so I have visions of a future anniversary 'trash the dress' shoot with my husband . . . but he doesn't know this yet."
