We asked some of our most stylish employees to show us their picks for their summertime soirees. Read on to see what they had to say about weddings, style, and their own love stories.

Shop the Bridgette Dress

Maria G., Merchandise Assistant for Home Textiles

Whose wedding are you attending? “My best friend from high school is marrying her first boyfriend. I’m so excited to see this happening for her!”

What’s your favorite wedding tradition? “Definitely the father-of-the-bride speech.”

Shop the Barrett Dress

Arianna E., Associate Buyer

How did you meet your fiancé? “We met through mutual friends. We didn’t exchange numbers that night, but he texted my friend and told her to put in a good word for him. I felt early on that he could be the one.”

What will your wedding be like? “We’re getting married at the boathouse in Central Park because it’s near where we met. My fiancé is Jewish and I’m Dominican, so the wedding will blend both of our cultures. There will be a chuppah and glass smashing, along with lots of Salsa dancing!”

Shop the Cecily Gown

Hailey O., Assistant Buyer, & Ryan

How did you meet? “I was in love with him in high school, and he wanted nothing to do with me. He said I talked too much! I didn’t give up, and we got engaged in January, a day after our 9-year anniversary.”

How will you incorporate your personal style into your bridal look? “My personal style is easygoing but funky. I’m an accessories buyer at Anthro, so I’ll work with vendors to create a custom earring or hair piece.”

What are you most looking forward to about your wedding? “We love to dance, so finding the right band is a huge priority!”

Shop the Sakara Dress

Gabrielle M., Associate Home Textile Designer

How did he propose? “I actually proposed to him! My fiancé has a friend whose girlfriend proposed, so I thought, why not? I made an origami box and printed out a picture of a ring. I genuinely caught him off guard.”

How will you incorporate your personal style into your bridal look? “I’m going to have two dresses. I have a background in fashion design, so I want to do a more modern take on a dress I designed for a friend last year.”

Shop the Blue Nights Dress

Blaire B., Senior Vendor Relations Coordinator

What’s your favorite wedding tradition? “We’re not doing a first look, so the first time he’ll see me is when I walk down the aisle. I’m really looking forward to that moment.”

What will your wedding be like? “Our wedding is in September in our hometown—where it all began! It will be a little boho, a little modern, a little romantic, and a lot of fun!”

Will there be any special details? “We’re having pie instead of cake. My favorite is peach. We’ll also have blueberry and apple, along with an ice cream truck from a local creamery!”

Shop the Romola Dress

Sophia H., QA Engineer
