Your wedding day is supposed to be the happiest day of your life. But planning the wedding? That's more like Hell on earth. When your parents are the ones paying for the big day, moms can wield checkbooks like a devil's pitchfork. But that's not what happened when Kristin Lucks Shelton got married in May 2007. She and her mother, Connie Lucks, loved planning her nuptials so much that they joined forces and entered the wedding-industrial complex head-on, opening their own salon, Fleur De Lis Bridal Boutique, on Maryland Avenue in downtown Clayton in January 2011. Fleur De Lis is the exclusive vendor for several couture wedding dress lines, including Modern Trousseau, Elizabeth Fillmore and Liancarlo, as for jewelry from Erin Cole, Homa Bridal and Miss Allaneous. But the best part of Fleur De Lis isn't the dresses, the jewelry or even the sparkling wine — it's Shelton and Lucks' eagerness to make their brides the center of attention, both at the salon and on their big day. If you're looking for both the rock-star treatment and the princess gown, you'll find both here.
