My goddaughter is getting married this July and I am overjoyed! To see her so happy and starting a new chapter in her life makes me thrilled. Now, I have to decide what to wear!

It is a summer wedding at a beach destination so I am want to be dressed in color as I wear so many dark colors all fall & winter. Color soothes me and it is appropriate for a summer wedding as it signifies freshness, summer and joy.

I am a super fan of designer Elie Saab because he creates clothes that enhance ones looks. This Lebanese master designer makes one feel confident in his clothes as the cuts are flattering and the romantic/sophisticated styles can be worn for a lifetime. These are not disposable clothes but investment pieces that one can cherish.

The use of lace, chiffon and floral embroidery are all my favorites especially executed in color. I prefer a short dress over long because I can get multiple wears out of it for various occasions.

Being so close to the bride I want to look elegant, chic and fresh but not wear a garment that over powers the situation. Ellie Saab creates clothes that are a work of art that one can wear to a wedding or any special occasion and look ones best!
