Happy Monday, everyone! In cased you missed it last Friday, we had a fab time Twitter-chatting with the Enzoani wedding dress team about everything from dress shopping tips to 2015 bridal trends. Enzoani shared some of the best looks from their latest collection (seriously—what winter bride wouldn’t love this amazing capelet?), real brides got answers to their burning etiquette questions (is it OK for guests to wear white to a wedding?), and one lucky lady won an Enzoani gown to wear on her wedding day! Get up to speed on the conversation by clicking over to the #WWxEnznoani hashtag, and be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook for news on when our next chat will be!
