“See” Shells: Destination Beach Wedding Dress Inspiration

Shell Beach inspires Destination Beach Wedding Gown by Lauren Elaine

Once upon a time, while “annual honeymooning” in the West Indies, I became shipwrecked on a treasure-filled island formally known as Saint Barthélemy (hereby know as St. Barts)  – — and it served up major destination design inspiration!

Los Angeles Fashion Designer Lauren Elaine poses at the LA Equestrian Center's Horse Show Arena

I love a big skirt. From mermaids to ball gowns, a wedding is once-in-a-lifetime event, and something that deserves once-in-a-lifetime drama.  But because we’re not living in the 1800s anymore and hoop skirts just feel too contrived, we use a little magic something called “horsehair” to create the volume of bridal dreams in many of
