After assembly Lhuillier and taking one look at a room stuffed with romantic assertion robes, Chung realized selecting a marriage costume may be more durable than she anticipated. “I turned to Monique and earlier than I may even say something, she mentioned ‘don’t be concerned, we have loads of time to determine it out,’” mentioned Chung.
