The dress: Casablanca

The story: "I loved the lace, the small train, the way it moved. I loved that it was a little bit sparkly and a little bit fairy tale, but also casual enough to work with our outdoor venue. And there was something in my mom's reaction, and in my best friends' reactions, that told me it was the right choice."
Something old, something new...: "I counted the dress as something new, and I paired it with my mom's diamond and blue sapphire bracelet — which tripled as something old, something borrowed, and something blue."
Where the dress is now: "I had my dress preserved, and now it's tucked into a box in the corner of my closet."
