The cover and images from the book were shot here at The White Dress by the shore and owner Beth Chapman contributed to the chapter on selecting your wedding gown. Here is a sneak peak at a few of the top tips:
1. "Secure your wedding date and venue before you select a dress."
2. "Set a budget that includes the extras, like foundation garments, alterations and accessories."
3. "In selecting your wedding attire reflect your personal styles, not the trends."
4. "Skip the entourage- bring only a couple of people who are close to you to limit opinions."
To read more of Beth's tips and Karen's other words of wisdom, join us on June 9th from 6-9 when you can purchase the book! During the event you can also enter to win a one on one planning session with Karen during a quaint lunch at the historic bee and thisle inn.
At the event we will also be kicking off our Modern Trousseau trunk show that runs June 10th -13th by appointment. Designer Callie Tein will be on hand to launch her 2011 collection.
It will be a fun evening of fashion, delicious food and all things bridal! Don't miss it!
