What They Wore

An intimate look at nine fashion designers on their wedding day.


Monique Lhuillier

May 20, 1995, Los Angeles, California


Overall Look and Feel:
We wanted to keep it very traditional. I was a young bride—I was 22, and Tom was 23—so our wedding was really for our parents.

The Dress:
The dress was Ron LoVece and the third I tried on. I had my parents with me, and they said, “You look like a princess.” I thought, Okay, let’s take it. I was a really easy bride. I wasn’t a designer yet. I knew the field I wanted to be in, but I didn’t know it would be bridal until I was shopping for my dress. That’s what opened my eyes. I thought I could infuse something different into the bridal world.

Memorable Dress Moment:
I had the dress cleaned and preserved and asked to inspect it right there at the counter, which was a good thing because it wasn’t my dress! They had switched my dress with someone else’s. It took three weeks to straighten everything out.
