It takes a village to plan a wedding, so it’s a good thing we are taking a trip to the Park Cities today: Make your way to Highland Park Village, and get comfortable, because we’re going to be spending a lot of time here. You will find your dress at Carolina Herrera and shoes at either Jimmy Choo, Christian Louboutin, or for a little extra Texas twist, climb the stairs over Honor Bar to get yourself a bespoke pair of boots at Miron Crosby.
Get your beauty regimen in place at Bluemercury, and set up a hair consultation at Fekkai. Stop in at Alice + Olivia to find a rehearsal dinner dress, Trina Turk for a bridal shower ‘fit, and Market for bachelorette party attire. While he might not like it, bring your guy along on this escapade, and get him tuxed up at Tom Ford or Hadleigh’s, then take him right on over to Harry Winston to pick out your wedding bands. While you can find your groomsmen tuxes at the same spot that you get your groom’s, find your bridesmaids some smashing styles at Lela Rose.
Roller Rabbit will have your getting-ready outfits, and while you’re making your rounds, think beyond just apparel. Visit St. Michael’s Woman’s Exchange to pick out some thank you notes, Le Labo or Forty Five Ten for bridal party gifts, and Chanel for a new wedding clutch. The best part about shopping at HPV for your wedding is that they’ve launched the “I do” program to make it all more affordable.
Now that you have all these items checked off, it’s time to do some actual planning. Lock up the Meadows Museum at SMU for both ceremony and reception—the architecture and art are stately, but provides a blank canvas for your designs to run wild. Enlist Avant Garden for florals, Panini Bakery for your cake, The Highland for the rehearsal dinner, and of course, Bistro 31 for your morning-after brunch.
If you’re looking for some pre-wedding fitness, our friends at The Bar Method off Lovers Lane will help you reach all your goals, and then some, and after each class, be sure to stop by Stretch Zone on Preston Road—they’ll work to keep you feeling limber and zen during this exhilarating time.
