In celebration of tonight’s event themed “China: Through the Looking Glass,” we asked a few of our staffers, “If you scored a golden ticket what would you wear—and who would you bring—to New York City’s biggest social event?” Let the best dressed table win!

Say Yes to Kleinfeld Bridal’s First-Ever Online Sample Sale!

TLC-kleinfeld

Let’s be fair here: You hardly need a ring on your finger to be super enthused about Kleinfeld’s first-ever online sample sale, launching at noon ET exclusively on Gilt. In fact, a healthy obsession with TLC’s “Say Yes to the Dress” will do just fine—because we’ve tapped the show’s most trusted bridal consultants to dish up advice for choosing the most important dress you’ll ever wear. Study up, then shop the sale to discover your own dream dress at up to 50% off.

StyleFile: What’s your advice for a bride who has no idea what she wants to wear? Should she look at magazines, celeb photos, Pinterest—or just start trying on?
Debbie: My advice for a bride who has no idea at all is to search kleinfeldbridal.com, plus other bridal websites such as theknot.com and to browse through magazines. The bride should bring the pictures to her appointment and let the consultant know how she wants to feel on her wedding day, whether that’s romantic, sexy etc.
Antonella: Photos are the best way to start.  Search our website and Pinterest and bring photos of your favorite gowns to your appointment. It will help give me an idea of your style.

SF: What’s your advice for a bride who thinks she knows exactly what she wants? Should she consider other options?
Debbie: You only buy a wedding gown once (hopefully) so all options should be explored. You need to say no sometimes to confirm the yes!
Antonella: Don’t get your heart set on a gown you have seen in a magazine until you try it on.  Photos can be deceiving.
