Say Yes to the Stress
As wedding season heats up, industry pros say ‘I do’ to matrimonial madness
Julie Sabatino, whose independent wedding styling business, The Stylish Bride, is one of just a few in the city, says helping brides and their wedding parties find the perfect attire requires empathy and sincerity.
“What I do is so much based on a personal relationship and getting to know them really well,” says the 36-year-old Upper West Side resident, who styles 15 weddings a year. “I really love the emotional part of it.”
And when she’s faced with a disappointing dress fitting — or worse, a disappointed mother of the bride?
“The most important thing is to be calm, and make them know you have it under control,” she says.
