If you attended #helmigclemondsbash, feasted your eyes on the fabulous pictures, or followed along on Instagram, then you know who stole the show.  And no, we’re not talking about Shannon!  It was her beautiful Hayley Paige gown, Dori.  Throughout the evening, Dori was the topic of most conversation and continued to be the most popular gal on Instagram.  Social media duties for the evening consisted of tagging “Hayley Paige,” “Dori,” and “Bella Bianca Bride,” because that is all anyone wanted to know about.  Here is Shannon’s inspiration for choosing the dress, plus her journey to finally walking down the aisle in it!

We also have a fun announcement to share with you all today… This post could not come at a more perfect time because the ladies of Bella Bianca will be taking over our Instagram account in the next few weeks and we could not be more excited!  The Bella Bianca girls are currently in NYC covering New York Bridal Fashion Week, so they will have some fab behind the scenes photos, as well as some sneak peeks to share with us.  Stay tuned and be sure to follow along!
