With several celebrity weddings this past weekend, none had more sparkle or style than the wedding of former MTV VJ LaLa Vazquez to NBA star Carmelo Anthony. While you’ve already seen LaLa in her bridal gown, it is her ‘reception/change outfit’ that she purchased at Bridal Reflections NYC, that you will hear about and see in the slideshow here first!

Brides, remember it’s not just where you purchase your wedding gown, it’s the service that comes with it. The impeccable service that each and every bride receives at Bridal Reflections makes it the most sought out bridal salons in NYC for couture dresses and five-star service. Often you’ll see my postings about ‘trunk shows’ because you just may find your dream dress. This is true and happened unexpectedly to LaLa just a few days before her wedding.

LaLa already had her wedding gown(s) (by Vera Wang), but after accompanying her bridesmaid to Bridal Reflections on Thursday, July 8th for their bridesmaid dresses, LaLa fell in love with a Romona Keveza gown displayed in the salon for their trunk show and tried it on. This particular gown was featured in Romona Keveza’s 10th anniversary collection and you guessed it; LaLa immediately fell in love with it, but…wanted just a few small changes. Bridal Reflections in their effort to have yet another happy bride, worked in overdrive to get her alterations done in time for her big day (which was just 2 days later!).

I had the opportunity to speak with Cristina DeMarco from Bridal Reflections who worked with LaLa on creating her dream dress. The vision was “to create a very fashion forward look. Changes were made to the a-line chiffon skirt, changing it into a hi-lo skirt (short mini front into ankle length in the back), which gave the gown a bubble hem finish creating a soft draping in a puddling effect. She truly has a one of kind gown!” Why did LaLa want a shorter front? I would suspect to show off her killer legs and dazzling shoes.

The original Romona Keveza gown was strapless with a sweetheart neckline, which highlights a voulant-textured bodice made of silk chiffon scattered with delicate Swarovski crystals. The soft flared skirt is made of silk chiffon. Accented at the waist, is an attached Swarovski crystal belt – just a little extra bling. The 2011 collection is equally beautiful and I hear the fall collection is one of her best yet.

Bridal Reflections is a favorite known as a full-service bridal salon, willing to go the extra-mile for all their brides. This is what I mean about service so I wasn’t surprised that they did this for LaLa. They create an environment that makes each of their brides feel like a celebrity.
