Escorted by her father, the bride was absolutely stunning in her elegantly fitted Maggie Sottero gown.

The bride completed her look with an exquisite fingertip ivory-colored veil featuring delicate scalloped trim of pearls, Swarovski crystals and rhinestones framing the veil.
She carried a whimsical textured bridal bouquet featuring colors of blush, ivory, champagne and green flowers which included peonies, garden roses, tulips, Veronica, astilbe, eucalyptus, ruscus and ranunculus.

Missouri Western’s theatre department has taken on many big productions throughout the years. “The Producers,” “Urinetown” and “Godspell” are just a few of the big musicals to hit Potter Hall’s stage, and for the Spring 2017 season, they are tackling the 80s in their production of “The Wedding Singer.”
The musical debuted on Broadway in 2006 and is based on the hit 1998 Adam Sandler movie of the same name. The story revolves around Robbie Hart, an entertaining wedding singer who gets left at the alter by his fiancé. Devastated and humiliated, he is befriended by a waitress, Julia, who works at a reception hall where he regularly performs. She enlists his help to plan her wedding, but things become confusing when he begins to fall in love with her. The production is largely a comedy with a few serious moments mixed in. Cast member Cecilia Tackett, who plays Linda, hopes that after the last few more serious productions, this one will be a straightforward good time.

“It’s a very fun show set in the 80s – it’s a really fun experience to go through,” Tackett said. “Everybody in the show is having a great time with it. The whole entire cast is becoming a big family.”
The cast is ready and the show is drawing near. However, it took a lot of work to get there. Cast members had rehearsals from 7:00-10:00 p.m., five days a week, learning the choreography, lines and music of the production. While it is a lot of work, cast member Raven Reed, who plays Holly, says it’s rewarding.
“It’s challenging, it’s fast, it’s upbeat, it’s not really repetitive,” Reed said. “The choreography was awesomely intense. It was like ‘dang, this is cool, this is awesome.'”
They reserved up to four rooms every night in Potter for the different aspects of the production like vocals. Cast members would rotate, learning their different parts and working on schoolwork. When one considers other parts of the production like set design and costumes, there is a lot that goes into it.
The show opens on April 21 and runs through the 23, and then it runs again the next weekend on the 28-29. You can purchase advance tickets by going online to missouriwestern.edu or by heading to the box office in Potter Hall. This is a show that you don’t want to miss.

Beauty vloggers aren't the only ones to get inventive with basic household items like bottle caps or kitchen sponges, which were used as an eyeshadow guide and a DIY beautyblender, respectively. Budding designers and brides-on-a-budget can get creative via the Cheap Chic Weddings Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest. Wait… what?
That's right — bridal toilet paper couture is a thing, at least with this contest, which is officially "The 13th Annual Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest Presented by Cheap Chic Weddings and Quilted Northern."
Judging from the pics I've seen of past entries, you really can craft a stunning and wearable dress from this unconventional material.

Those with designer ambitions and/or frugal brides are challenged to create an on-trend wedding dress and accompanying head piece. The caveat? The only tools that can be utilized to create the gown are toilet paper, glue, tape, needles, and thread, according to the press release received by Bustle.
Contest sponsor Quilted Northern, which is like the Taj Mahal of TP, recommends the Ultra Plush or Ultra Soft & Strong varietals. The brand is even offering coupons upon request to offset some of the costs! You can email TPDresscontest@gmail.com to grab that discount.
This contest reminds of the fantastic Mychael Knight from an early season of Project Runway. He created a gorgeous white frock from coffee filters. If they had like-to-buy options back then, I'd have nabbed it on the spot. It was that good.
Toilet paper is a pretty delicate, uh, fabric. So creating a walk-down-the-aisle-worthy wedding dress using the material has to be tough. But imagine how whimsical and light-hearted it can be.
Here are the rules. Basically, you plan your design according to the stipulations stated above. Make the dress on a model or mannequin. The dress must be able to be worn by a living, breathing human. Take front, back, and side photos in well-lit conditions. Do not alter them.
Contestants have until 11 p.m. ET on June 5 to submit those photos — there is no entry fee.
Online public voting determines the winner of this couture contest. The grand prize is $10,000. Second place nabs $5000 and third place grabs $2500.
The finale is set for July 20 in NYC, where a panel of experts will select the winning toilet paper creation.
