{ Wedding Dresses with BEAUTIFUL Backs }

A few years while attending a friend’s wedding, I had an AWE moment; she was absolutely stunning walking down isle with her father AND then it happened, an unexpected surprise; she walked past us revealing the most elegant back of a dress I had EVER seen. It was the perfect amount of beading and sparkle that lead your eyes down to her train flawlessly. It was breath-taking, classy, and memorable!  I feel like sometimes it’s easy to forget about all angles of our gown; and the majority of your dress’ first looks are at ceremonies, when you are briefly seen from the front, however, mostly from the side or back for the duration of your ceremony. AND this is the time when ALL EYES are on you! So here’s some inspiration to beautify your back side on your big day!

SWEET and NEAT

{ 10 Beautifully BELTED Wedding Dresses }

Accessorize. Accessorize. Accessorize!!! Have I mentioned how much I love and live for beautiful accessories?! If not, I must tell you; I LOVE and LIVE FOR beautiful accessories! Actually, for my own wedding, I had two separate sets of accessories with my dress. One set for our ceremony and a second set for the reception! So, remember gals, if you don’t two or three dress it up; you can still get multiple looks just by accessorizing! Good stuff! WooHoo accessories!

ANYWHO…one of my new favorite looks is a BEAUTIFULLY BELTED WEDDING DRESS! Why wouldn’t you want emphasize the thinnest part of you EVERYDAY, let alone your wedding day! And, the belts that are out there today are stunning, and I mean STUNNING! From floral, to feathery, to shiney, to sparkly, there is a bridal belt out that to meet everyone’s style. I must even admit, some of these belts make a gorgeous dress, DROP DEAD GORGEOUS! (P.S. on a side note, did you know the phrase “Drop Dead” was coined in 1962 meaning excellent? “Drop dead gorgeous” was coined in an article about Michelle Pfeiffer in 1985 and has stuck around ever since! Good phrase nonetheless, thanks to the awesome-ness of the cat-woman herself!) Okay, now that you know that random fact; here’s some weekly wedding inspiration for ya! Cheers to the belt! Enjoy!

This one makes me swoon! Love everything about this look!

{ Carnival Wedding Theme }

fc5d141b7ffb3a9bc842a18531264b54

SO…I told you it was coming! After my balloon post from last week, I couldn’t help but be inspired by the above photo and get excited for the events during this time of year! THE FAIR IS COMING TO TOWN!!! Call me old fashioned, but I LOVE  me a good fair, or maybe I should say, the tradition of the fair. The ferris wheel, games, caramel apples, cotton candy;  now imagine all those timeless accents glamour-ized into a WEDDING! Sounds AMMMM-AZZING! Will somebody PLEASE plan this wedding and invite me already! Here’s a couple ideas on how your fair, circus, carnival style wedding can be UNIQUE, FUN, and FABULOUS all rolled into one.

Ladies and Gents you are invited! Love this wording for an invite:

adec4f0b100cd5ccf107747d2bf91c54

Love these color schemes, reds, with pastels, and patterns! FANTASTIC! Also, I can’t help but love the vintage feel this theme has to offer as well, the pinwheels, banners, and round bulb lighting you’ll see in photos to come. BUT for now check out the details in these pretty cakes:

Here comes the GLAMOUR-IZED PART! White lights, amazing colors, and unique table settings, and decor to pull it all together!

How beautiful is the mixture of these white lights and colorful umbrellas!fa0509824c957636008a49da1c545de6

c99868e9434062efe0d8e2f29ed10739

 

Do you feel inspired?! How about excited for the FAIR?!? I feel both! You could be the “Fairest of the Fair” if you choose to do this theme, and it won’t be able to help but be “The Big Show” of the year! Okay, I’ll stop already! BUT someone PLEASE plan this wedding or I’m going to have to talk to my husband about renting me a ferris wheel and getting married again, AGAIN! I’m sure he’ll go for that! :) ANYHOW, HAPPY FAIR TIME ALL! Enjoy your corn dogs ladies and gents!

{ LOVE. BALLOONS. and WHIMSY. }

9e5d4c3d82d274c27fba00d3b4ae4024

Wedding Balloons. *sigh* Remember the 80s! And 90s can be thrown in there too. We loved us some balloons back then, but how could you not! The wedding balloon decor of that period was overdone, to say the least; like many new ideas can be! No worries 80s and 90s; we won’t hold it against you, if anything you’ve helped us learn and grow! Balloon decor of the 2010s has been modernized and minimal-ized and whims-ified AND AWESOME-ified in a MUCH better way! From decor, to accessories, a few balloons here and there can’t help but add a little enjoyment and whimsy…and who doesn’t enjoy a little-cutie-patootie-WHIMSY?!? AND the next best part; you know what you do with all those balloons when the party is over?! Find the nearest child and make them the happiest little creature for the next week of their cute little lives! Moral of the story is BALLOONS = HAPPY! :) Here is some inspiration for balloon fabulous-ness! Don’t get carried away now… ;)

This photo has officially inspired next weeks blog! Can you guess?! Okay, okay, I’ll tell you! I’m bad at keeping secrets anyway! Carnival Themed Weddings! WHOOT! How fun does that sound! Plus it’s almost August and you know what that means?! The fair is in town! HEYO! Watch for it next week to enjoy the awesomeness! BUT, back to BALLOON EXCITEMENT for now, try to control yourselves… :)

Is this tree decor the COOLEST or what! (I’ve heard for these downward hanging balloons, the trick is to put a rock in the balloon and then blow up.)

26016a38d0270de63b12f3b23367f88a

I heart an American Gothic-esque photo with BALLOONS and FLOWERS…good things, good things.

Rainy Day Wedding: Ideas that will make us all WISH for a drop or two

 

1e9658186c029a280cbdc695a33fc9e7

After a very unexpected and poorly predicted forecast over the past couple weeks, I realized there is just no EXACT planning around mother nature, it’s best just to appreciate and roll with whatever that gal throws your way. The days it’s supposed to be romantically cloudy, the sun shines through; and those expected sunny days, sometimes turn into drizzly little dreams. I must admit; I really do find a good rainy day endearing, made for romantically sipping coffee while listening to some good tunes, ahhh, good stuff! SOO, here’s to all those romantic RAINY DAY WEDDINGS and for the appreciation of a few rain drops, instead of dreading them. To all my brides and party planners, may you find a way to make the best of those unexpected and un-invited fluffy grey clouds, lovely little raindrops, and that endearing drizzle, if they shall so bless your day! To help you see the silver lining; here is some great inspiration to make your rainy day a tad-bit more sweet and colorful.

Could a ring shot get any prettier?!
