Since 1993, designers (and college sweethearts) Mark Badgley and James Mischka of Badgley Mischka have made so many others' wedding fantasies into reality with their breathtaking bridal line. We invited them to map out their own ideal celebration.
Location? In the field at our house in Locust Valley
Attire? Custom-made black suits with white ties
First dance? "I Want to Hold Your Hand" by Petula Clark
The ring? Engraved on the inside: "Put me back on."
Wedding singer? Melissa Etheridge
The registry? No gifts, please!
Who would give you away? Nobody
Reception meal? Caviar, deviled eggs, and lamb chops. And lots of Champagne -- in glasses the size of finger bowls.
Party favors? Badgley Mischka diamonds
The centerpiece? Magnolia leaves and blossoms
The theme? Modern Gatsby
The ride out? One of our vintage Rolls-Royces
The officiant? Peter O'Toole
The cocktail? The Gatsby cocktail -- Southern Comfort, lime juice, and fresh ginger ale
The wedding party? Mark's sister as maid of honor and James's brothers as best men. And we'd have to work our two dachshunds in there somewhere.
