Yesterday was a super fun day thanks to the lovely ladies over at  They treated a bunch of us B-Listers to a day shmoozing with some of the creme de la creme in the wedding world.  The day started out at Reem Acra…unfortunately Reem was called out of the country last minute, but we were able to talk to her via Skype.  It was amazing to get to see all the fabulous dresses up close, and really appreciate the details in all of them.  We had some fun playing with the celebrity dresses too…celebrities really ARE that tiny.
