WEDDING WEDNESDAY: Little White Dress

I love the idea of having a reception dress for the evening of your wedding. Maybe it is the fashion major in me, or my need to have a special outfit for everything, but I love the idea of having a gorgeous dress to marry in, and a dress to party the night away in celebration. Here are some of my favorite LWD inspiration images, and a few dresses you can snag for yourself!

WEDDING WEDNESDAY: Unique Bridal Bouquets

One of the greatest things I have read about planning a wedding, is that so many months or years after their wedding wish they had take more risks. Florals is definitely a great way to make a statement at your wedding. The florists and floral design people I have met while planning my wedding have been some of the most creative thinkers, they can really come up with some inspired arrangements. Here are some of my favorite unique bouquets!

Gorgeous.

WEDDING WEDNESDAY: Themed Engagement Photos

I am so happy about my first Wedding Wednesday post! Happy Wednesday y’all! I used to work in the bridal industry selling bridal gowns, and of course by stalking Pinterest I think I am a wedding expert (we all have to admit we have one or two wedding pin boards!) but in reality this is just a collection of thoughts, ideas, and amazing photos I have found and wanted to share! My first post is about these amazing themed engagement photos that I have found! I love this  idea (as long as its not too tacky!) Here are some amazing photos from an engagement shoot based on the Disney Pixar’s UP! Such a great love story… and such cute engagement photos!

If you and your fiance don’t have a favorite movie you could always theme your engagement photos off of your first date or a favorite memory you have together. Here are some great photos of a couple who did carnival themed engagement photos. So cute!! And such great keepsakes to remember this special time in their lives.
