New York City, NY, United States
I was never someone who fantasized what I wanted my wedding to be like however, when I started to plan it everything came together pretty organically. We just wanted everyone to feel like they were at an old 1930s supper club. I wanted my dress to reflect this theme as well but I didn’t want vintage nor anything that looked costume-y. When this Lazaro dress was brought out to me I knew that it was a bold choice but also felt like old Hollywood glam!

We had a traditonal black tie wedding in Tampa, FL. When I began shopping for a wedding gown I knew that I wanted something very bridal and big! I was looking for something that was traditional with a modern twist, something unique and different. I instantly fell in love with this gown. I loved the intricate beading of the bodice and the softness and texture of the skirt. It had all of the elements I was looking for and could felt like an absolute princess on our special day!

We loved every second of the wedding planning! We all fell in love with the Venetian in Garfield, NJ so we knew we wanted a black tie wedding with lots of flowers and crystals! Dress shopping was my favorite part of the planning process, and I could not have found a more perfect dress for our winter wedding!
The wedding weekend was absolutely perfect!From the weather too food, we can truly say we wouldn’t have changed one thing about our wedding. We are so thankful to our parents, friends, and amazing vendors for making our dreams come true!
Richmond, VA, United States
I had a vision of what I called early on “vintage meets modern romance.” I knew from day one I wanted grey. All ten of my girls wore JLM Couture. I thought it would be fun to let them choose their own styles, and it was so much fun! Each woman looked amazing in a style that matched her own body and personality, and together they formed a beautiful, cohesive group. Our day was filled with so much love, laughter and fun. It was better than we could have ever imagined! And my rehearsal dinner dress was a Jim Hjelm Occasions dress! The bodice was Ivory and the skirt was Graphite Silky Taffeta.
Megan’s bridesmaids wore Jim Hjelm Occasions bridesmaids dresses style 5947 , style 5021 , style 5027 , style 5030 , style 5069 , style 5137 , style 5184 , Alvina Valenta bridesmaids dress style 9072 , and Lazaro bridesmaids dress style 3081 , all in Graphite Silky Taffeta.

Erik and I met in June of 2010 and were engaged on October 16, 2010. Erik and I choose The Breakers Palm Beach because I was from Florida, and as we toured the venue we both knew it was the perfect atmosphere to say our vows. On April 23, 2011, our wedding exceeded any fairytale version I’d ever dreamed about . We danced the night away in the Mediterranean ballroom with rose petals dripping from the ceiling, and a towering cake! My Lazaro gown looked like it was made of feathers and was a perfect fit for the enchanted reception!

Chicago, IL, United States
For those of you who know me, this will not come as a surprise. Since most of my family and best friends are out of town, the first time I tried on a wedding dress I was by myself. I had 2 months before September 24th…when those closest to me were coming in from out of town to help me find THE DRESS! I wanted to select the dress while they were in town but did not want to feel pressured to make a decision without having researched my options! So in preparation, I built a 15 page PowerPoint of all the contenders categorized by store and style. I even had a must try on for fun category. We thought we had narrowed it down to the final two and it was time to try on the fun dress. I was not expecting a “this is the dress” moment. But to my surprise, that is exactly how I felt in this dress. I had a huge smile on my face in the dressing room. I knew this was the one. When I walked into the salon, everyone came immediately over to me to admire the dress. I fell in love with the contemporary style of Lazaro, the intricately beaded top and flowy lightweight bottom that made it easy to wear. A dress is truly special when people not only admire how phenomenal the dress is, but the dress does not distract or overpower the bride herself. It was such an amazing dress that even during photos when it got all muddy, by the time we got to the church, it had dried and all the mud fell off!!
The dress was too gorgeous to just put in a box for the next 30 years, so as hard as it was to take scissors to it, I had it altered for events such as charity events, NYE and our first anniversary! Thank you to Beata Holub for turning my dream wedding dress into something I not only will cherish forever but can wear as well. Thank you also to my Aunt Ann, who not only made this dress a reality, but who appreciated my PowerPoint and agenda, and helped create our own Say Yes to the Dress moment to cherish forever. I love you!
We tied the knot in Cartagena, an enchanting city in the Caribbean coast of Colombia, our home country. Cartagena was the perfect setting for a traditional Latin American wedding, the ceremony took place at Iglesia Santo Domingo, the oldest church in the city, followed by a formal reception for 150 guests in a beautiful colonial house. I wore a Flamenco inspired bridal gown by Lazaro, and complemented it with a long sleeve lace bolero and 2 feather hair flowers. Our photos are simply beautiful and it is a day we will remember forever.
Our wedding day was beautiful. Although there were over 350 people, it still felt very intimate. The reception took place at the Croatian Cultural Center. Floor-to-ceiling draping graced the walls with elaborate orchid arrangements for centerpieces on elegant damask linens.Bridesmaids accompanied the bride in their slim fitting graphite dresses

We wanted a unique, glamorous, modern, and romantic wedding. I know that’s a lot of adjectives, but our wedding hit each one out of the park! To set the tone, we of course had to choose a unique venue – The Liberty Hotel in Boston. Between my knockout Lazaro gown, my bridesmaids’ elegant Alvina Valenta dresses, our gleaming decor, the sensational flowers and a ton of love, we definitely achieved something glamorous, modern and romantic, too. 11/5/11 was better than I could have imagined!

Trump Soho was our wedding venue, I knew my wedding dress should reflect the same modern luxury.
I was forced into an early dress scouting trip since my Mom was in-town. The only definitive no I gave my consultant was “no beading”. She ignored me and brought in several dresses.. This Lazaro dress was #5 and I immediately fell in love. I tried on 3 more and then announced I was done. I knew which one I’d be wearing on my wedding day.
I’ve never felt prettier than on the day of my wedding. The modest train allowed me to feel like a princess for the ceremony and with the bustling, I was able to enjoy the party and dancing at the reception.

Eric and I got married on July 2nd at Eric’s parents’ home on Cape Cod. We had an outdoor ceremony and reception, and were fortunate to have just the most beautiful weather on the day. I wore an ivory Lazaro dress with a sweetheart neckline and antique-inspired beaded belt. The dress reflected my personality and style perfectly. The quality and design of the dress was unparalleled, and I felt like a true princess on the day. This paved the way for a fun-filled, eventful day, and the most memorable occasion to date.

Nick and I were married in beautiful Newport, Rhode Island in September. The ceremony was at Trinity Church, one of the oldest and most historic churches in Newport. The reception was at Belle Mer overlooking the Newport Bridge and Narragansett Bay. It couldn’t have been a more beautiful day shared with our family and friends!
I always envisioned myself in a lace wedding dress however as soon as I stepped into the Lazaro ballgown I knew it was the one. I truly felt like a bride!

Mat and I imagined a romantic, rock n roll, fantasy wedding that would tell our love story to our 200 guests. For a theme, we agreed that the 1986 fantasy cult film the Labyrinth starring David Bowie was exactly the enchanting look we wanted for our wedding. So while searching for my gown, I had the elaborate dress Jennifer Connely wore in the film in the back of my mind. As soon as I tried on my intricately designed Lazaro gown, and my mother saw me, we both knew it was the right dress. I’m quite petite (only 5’1), and Lazaro’s delicate gown really accented everything I wanted it to. At our wedding, I felt more beautiful than I ever have before and it truly was a magical night.
Mackinac Island, MI, United States
My husband and I met in L.A., but we’re originally from Michigan. We chose to get married on Mackinac Island because it’s a very special place that highlights all the beauty of our home state, especially in autumn. We wanted a vintage feel, and Mackinac has incredible history. There are no cars, so our guests took bikes and carriages, which added to the old fashioned charm. We chose to have a very personal, intimate wedding; we wanted it to be a weekend party with our nearest and dearest. From start to finish it was everything we dreamed.

The first thing my mom and I did when I got engaged was took a trip to NY to go on the ultimate dress hunt. As soon as we walked into the first boutique I saw a girl standing in the mirror, I turned to my mom and said that’s my dress! When I finally put it on I knew that was it. Still when I look at it I LOVE my dress. Its classic beauty is timeless. I know I’ll look back years later at my wedding pictures and still be happy with the choice I made.
Monticello, IL, United States
Jared and I both had the same vision for a wedding: classic, elegant and traditional. We wanted to showcase the beauty of the gardens and mansion so we chose a palette of rich jewel tones with gold accents. Given the elaborate gardens and traditional décor in the mansion, we were able to keep our added details simple. The only place where I deviated from traditional was with my dress. Thankfully, my Matron of Honor convinced me that if there is a day to wear a fluffy, feathery dress, it’s your wedding day.

Brandon and I are both organic produce farmers and met in a lettuce production class! We got married in the 1871 chapel of St.Philip church. Our reception was on my family farm, Delvin Farms. From the antique chapel to the shabby chic farm reception,everything was perfect! My Lazaro dress was beautiful and the perfect fit for the wedding we wanted. It had the vintage look with the satin dress in blush color, and was elegant with the swarovski crystals and satin ribbon.

It was love at first sight and 2 years later we tied the knot. We had a beautiful wedding at The Rockleigh in New Jersey. We had a garden ceremony as the bride always dreamed of.

I fell in love with the bodice of one dress and the skirt of a second dress. The helpful staff at Gigi of Mequon contacted the designer and I was able to get a custom-made gown that incorporated the two styles I wanted. The dress turned out beautifully! We had a very modern wedding and the dress accentuated our style perfectly. I felt like a princess on our wedding day. Our guests’ jaws dropped when I walked down the isle in this custom creation.

My husband & I have been together almost ten years, we have grown up together & will grow old together.

I crocheted all the groomsman’s bow ties, made my veil and we made & sewed all of our invitations, wrote our entire wedding ceremony and fermented wine for our favors. Our wedding was a group effort & would not of been possible without the unconditional support & love of all our friends & family
