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!

My wedding is in a location far from where I live, so I have to travel with my wedding gown. What is the best way to transport my gown while ensuring that it stays in prime condition for the big day?
Sally Conant of the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists says: Whether you’re traveling near or far, it’s important to pack your wedding gown properly. Here are some of the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists’ top tips for how to travel with your wedding gown.
How to Pack a Wedding Gown: Pack your wedding gown in a box or suitcase lined with tissue paper. Fold the gown neatly and buffer each fold with tissue paper to prevent creases. Make sure you use ample tissue paper to stuff the bodice of the gown and cushion any bows or sleeves. If your gown is beaded with prongs, put tissue over the prongs so that there are no snags. Once the suitcase or box is packed, the gown should not move when you shake the box.
