Favorite celebrity wedding: Sofia Coppola (she wore a lilac Alaia dress!) and Thomas Mars' cozy-chic Italian villa wedding -- basically, she can do no wrong in my eyes.
Veil or no veil: No veil, but that's subject to change.
One thing I would never leave home without: A good read, loaded iPod and an extra pair of flats -- I can never pick just one of anything!

The right chairs and chair treatments can transform what was a hodgepodge room into something that's elegant and refined. If it's a black-tie wedding, cover every chair in rich, silk fabric and add a coordinating sash. For a wedding that's outdoors, consider using simple chiavari chairs instead of the plastic folding kind. You can also use your chairs to highlight the season. Pay tribute to the time of year by decorating every one of the chairs with a miniature wreath for a winter wedding, or tie fresh blooms to each of the chair backs if you're having a springtime affair.
