Wedding Day Bling: How Much Is Too Much??

by Azure

Regardless of how contrived, scripted, or unreal The Hills“reality” show is, I’ll still turn it on from time to time (I’m a total sucker for reality t.v.). I watched The Hills, Season 5 Finale the other night, and was treated to an inside look at Heidi and Spencer’s wedding ceremony. Heidi’s Monique Lhuillier wedding dress was beyond stunning.

Bride Chic: He Chic- The History of Men’s Formal Wear
