For months now I have been searching for the perfect short wedding dress that would be tasteful and appropriate for a court-house elopement, an intimate backyard wedding, or just for the bride who wants to wear a shorter dress. And, after MUCH searching, allow me to introduce you to the most romantic, whimsical and classic-vintage-looking ivory dress I've ever come across by Lauren Moffat for Steven Alan.
P.S. It's called the "Wuthering Heights Dress." How perfect is that?
Wouldn't these adorable (AND cost-effective) dresses from A-Thread make lovely dresses for your bridesmaids? I certainly think so. And, as a several-times-bridesmaid, myself, I wouldn't mind wearing and subsequently owning any of these.
Right now I am OBSESSED with the flat slipper shoe-trend. Obsessed. I still haven't found the perfect pair that I want for fall, but I can't help but think that these pairs from the Gap would make excellent (and SUPER comfy) wedding shoes.
I'm sure I'm not the only person out there who is not 100% comfortable having her picture taken. So, if you're anything like me and are a little camera-shy, here are two things you should do before your engagement photos: 1) hire a photographer who makes you feel comfortable and 2) choose an activity for you and your fiancee to focus on while you're being photographed, like this couple, whose engagement shoot was featured this week on Grey Likes Weddings. So sweet.
I love that the style of the 1920s is having a renaissance in today's wedding market. When it comes to combining class, elegance and just the right amount of sex appeal, no era did it better than the era of The Great Gatsby, Prohibition and speakeasies. Australian designer Gwendolynne's gorgeous creations channel the slinky elegance of this era just perfectly. I can almost hear the jazz band playing...
Oh, oh, OH, these are so cool. Want a guestbook that you can display with pride and perhaps even hang on your wall? Well look no further than these lovely creations by Celadon Home. The "guest books" are actually more like mini paper installations on which your guests can write you love notes and well-wishes. So sweet, right?
I love polka-dots. Love, love, LOVE them. So, it should be no surprise that I am head over heels for this gown by Jenny Yoo with subtle polka dot accents. It's so sweet, feminine and pretty, don't you agree?
Most of the time, I try to shy away from using the word "cute" in relation to someone's wedding because the word can sound slightly condescending and like a word that's too often associated with children. But, I can't help myself today, because this wedding gem from Grey Likes Weddings is just straight-up precious perfection CUTE. Seriously, these details are so sweet and light and airy and just, well....cute.
There is something that so earthy and decadent about Ancient Greece, so I thought it was only fitting to draw some event design inspiration from this photo of the tombs at Telmessos. The treatment of the stone is natural, yet ornate --- much like these items, don't you agree?
Personally, I think that every bride should give herself permission to have two things when it comes to the shoes she wears on her wedding day: 1) comfort and 2) FUN! So, why not kill to birds with one stone, and make your 'something blue' some killer-fun blue shoes? (Fun fact: I wore a pair of blue polka-dot ballet flats at my wedding.) Here are some of my favorite finds from around the web:
