Yesterday's Unveiled bridal event in Beverly Hills really kicked this wedding season up a notch. Although there were tons of entertaining vendors (and booths with delicious bites) in the Beverly Canon Gardens, what really won us over was the show's celebrity panel and Vera Wang runway show at the Montage Beverly Hills hotel next door.

The festivities jumped off with a welcome speech and wedding advice panel moderated by Martha Stewart Weddings editorial director Darcy Miller. Top tips: Yifat Oren recommends providing all wedding guests with an agenda upon arrival, celebrity stationary expert Marc Friedland urges you to make your invitations as unique and personal as possible, and Pandora Vanderpump says to plan every minute of the day and memorize the flow. As far as how involved men should be in the wedding planning process, Pandora's mom, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump, shared some interesting advice: "Tell them to go to the gym and zip it!"

The Montage portion concluded with a killer Vera Wang runway show, confirming that Ms. Wang is indeed still the queen of all things bridal gowns. The collection was inspired by "witchcraft" and featured a blend of traditional (white) and experimental (nude, black) options.
