Reminisce Over You

I’ve been meaning to share pictures of my friend’s wedding not just because she’s my friend and I happened to be a bridesmaid, but because her wedding was awesome. Beautiful, to say the least. And believe me when I tell you it wasn’t the wine talking, though I had lots. Total cost of the wedding was less than what some girls pay for a wedding dress, but the amount of detail proves you don’t have to be rich to throw a fab fiesta. Her crazy talented photographer captured it all for us to view.

First, take a look at some of their engagement photos. They get me every time.

Super creative and full of (their) personality wedding invite

The left side is the back of the invite and the right side is the front side.

And on to the wedding. Dom dom dom dom. Nope, Anna walked down the aisle to The Beatles song, Here Comes The Sun.

Friday You're So Getting Hitched

I love weddings. Love them. Beautiful flowers, dazzling dresses, whimsical details, free booze (let’s be honest) – I’m a sucker for it all.

Wedding season is well underway and, in fact, we have three coming up – two of which I’ll be a bridesmaid for and one of which is this weekend. The third of which Evan will officiate. Not Joking.

I dedicate this post to Weddings. If I could have another one, I would. Heck, I may even choose to marry the same man. Ha!

I'm From Atlanta Baby. He From Savannah, Maybe

Tomorrow night Evan and I are off to Savannah for our friend’s wedding. I’ve wanted to visit said city since Aaron Spelling’s show Savannah back in the late 90’s. Behind all the cheating, lying and bad acting was a beautiful city filled with plantation homes that immediately captured my attention. The actual wedding will take place in Tybee Island, but I’m hoping to take some time to tour Savannah architecture.

All this aside, just yesterday I realized I haven’t got a stitch to wear. My head has been in the clouds and haven’t thought about any outfits to wear for our trip, but most importantly, the wedding. Rather than being productive and looking through my closet or hitting the shops, I created out-of-budget wedding attire from the always reliable net-a-porter and polyvore. Check out my three outfit options:

Wedding Outfit

I chose a sleeveless, flowy dress because it may be kind of humid and wanted to keep cool. To make things interesting, I’d wear these patterned heels. The clutch will add more spunk without competing with the shoes. Adding a few accessories and my outfit is complete.

Wedding Outfit

This dress should also keep me cool from the possible humidity. I like keeping things simple and adding a few accessories will kick things up a notch. A silky blue clutch will add some color. With long, dangling earring I won’t need to wear a necklace, and two large cocktail rings will display more appeal.

Wedding Outfit

My monochromatic outfit may be more appropriate for an evening wedding but since this is a virtual concept, why not go all out. The draping of the Burberry Prosum dress is the focal point and don’t want to overshadow it with accessories, so I’ve kept them in the same color scheme except the nail polish, which is pale enough to not overdo it. I must say though, that cocktail ring is killer. No really, you can probably kill someone with it. Evan thought it was armor.

Now I’m off to reality and must choose one budget conscience wedding outfit. Feel free to ask me for  further product information.

Going to the Chapel

The first two bouquet catchers definitely have the best shoes.

Hooray! Evan and I booked our flight to Savannah for one of four weddings we have coming up. Weddings get me all emotional and I tear up even if I hardly know the couple. I always wish it was me walking down the aisle even though I already had my turn. Walking down the aisle is one of those moments in life I wish I could re-enact several times a year.  And I’d surely like to wear my wedding dress around the house if it weren’t such a hassle getting it out of the box. Trust me, I’ve tried.

But enough about me. Since weddings bring such joy, I’d like to share some photos to inspire a mood of wedded bliss.

Holy smokes, these people either had real Philippe Starck ghost chairs or replicas. Either way, I’m way impressed.

Don’t forget to rsvp.
