Unlike many brides, Mariel knew exactly what she wanted out of her wedding dress.

“I envisioned a big ball gown with long sleeves and a beautiful, long train,” she said. The long sleeves were important, as she would be getting married in the winter and wanted to be comfortable.

“I also wanted something with swan feathers or some kind of feathers on it,” she added. “I’d been looking for months and months for my dream dress.”

Mariel was hoping to spend between $6,000 to $8,000 on her wedding dress, but she was willing to go up to $10,000 for a dress she really loved.

To make her experience even more fun, Mariel decided to shop for a dress in New York. Mariel, her best friend, her mom, and her mother-in-law headed to the Big Apple to shop together.
