Bridezillas, Wedding Dresses & Fashion Design

Weddings can be the most stressful time in a person’s life, whether they’re in the bridal party or dealing with the drama from the sidelines -- but no one knows wedding chaos quite like someone in the industry. In this episode, Celeste and Laurin are joined by Olivia Gray, who gets to deal with brides at the peak of wedding planning pressure. Olivia has  BFA from SCAD and currently provides bridal alterations while developing her own line of gowns. She has a ton of advice for brides-to-be, and their family and friends, about choosing a dress, staying true to yourself, and putting together a killer wedding. You’ll also hear some hilarious stories about rude moms, double-sided tape, and going strapless. Don’t miss it!


“It’s just one day in your life… but it’s the beginning of the rest of your life, so that’s really what matters.”
