StyleFile: Planning a wedding can become a full-time job–whats your advice for brides to help make it an easier experience?
Abby Larson: Hire a wedding planner! Although to those on a strict budget this may seem like a splurge, a good wedding planner can not only make the experience so much more manageable (allowing you to actually have fun with it) but they can save you money in the costly mistakes that brides often make when planning. Other than that, make sure to build in moments of fun throughout the whole process – make a day out of dress shopping with your mom and your besties, have your maids over for some wine and crafting, turn cake testing into a full on date night. Dote on the journey just as you would the day itself!

Fendi Selleria Collection: The Art of the Watch

Bespoke suits from Saville Row, haute couture gowns from Parisian ateliers — When it comes to next-level quality, it’s all about a custom craft. Leave it to Fendi, the near-90-year-old Italian luxury house famed for their furs, to inject that same standard of artistry into their fine jewelry. In 2010, creative director of accessories Silvia Venturini Fendi introduced the Selleria watch collection (debuting on Gilt today), which features interchangeable cases and straps for endless combinations to suit your style and mood. Swiss-powered and Italian-designed, the innovative watches are hand-stitched and crafted from the same Cuoio Romani leather used for the signature Selleria handbags, launched in the company’s first year. See the meticulous handiwork in the video above, and invest in a piece of history for yourself in our Fendi Watches sale.
