The Wedding Dress Style No One Is Wearing Anymore

After deciding that bridal stores needed a serious shake-up, Christy Baird founded LOHO Bride, an acronym for "league of her own." With locations in Los Angeles and San Francisco, LOHO Bride offers an experience for women who don’t identify with mainstream bridal looks. Every month, Christy will lend her expertise on high-fashion bridal designers and trends and offer a behind-the-scenes look at the latest industry news.

Armed with the information to help you master the ins and outs of wedding dress trends, you'll be able to save at least a little bit of the stress in wedding planning.
