Bridesmaid Inspiration

Choosing bridesmaid dresses can be a more difficult task than you anticipate. There are many designers all offering different dress styles, price points and color selection. I had an overall vision for my bridesmaids look; a soft mix and match palette of neutral tones, a simple style dress with a feminine and romantic feel. As most brides do, I spent some time browsing wedding blogs, Pinterest (of course) and read through helpful bridal fashion articles looking for ideas and inspiration on how to execute my vision.

The obvious next thing to do was head to the bridal shop. It was important for me to see it all in person before making my final decision. Kelly at Party Dress Express was amazing! Her experience, patience and knowledge of designers and colors was such an incredible help. She wasn’t sale-sy, distracted or annoyed by my questions and back and forth with colors. She truly felt like another bridesmaid, offering her opinion, making suggestions and allowing it all to be fun. The day was a success and led me to this beautiful wedding palette and gorgeous Allure {Style 1221} bridesmaid dress. What do you think?

TIP: Brides, allow bridal consultants to help you! They do this every day and chances are you vision or ideas are not far off from what another bride has done and their knowledge will save you time and stress.

The girls will be holding a simple style bouquet made up of an oversize single flower with greens. I am excited to see what my florist {Just for You Weddings} will come up with. Stay tuned for some Groomsmen Inspiration!

Formal from Head-to-Toe

Once the prefect wedding gown is found, the search is on for a great pair of shoes.  Brides know how important the perfect pair of shoes is in creating their overall look but often times, not much thought is given to what the groom will wear on his feet.  It’s true that men’s formal shoes can sometimes be plain but that is definitely not the case with the new David Tutera men’s formal shoe collection.

The first pattern, Celebrity, is a patent shoe with a classic double –runner across the body of the shoe.   The double-runner is over-laid with a matching matte material adding contemporary flair.  The second pattern, Icon, is the flip-side version of Celebrity where the shoe is matte-based and the double-runner is patent. Both styles are super sharp and would look great on every groom.

Have you shopped for your groom’s shoes yet?  If so, what style are you getting?

DIY Flower Girl Tutu

When thinking about my nieces and what they would wear on our wedding day I knew I wanted it to be fun. They are little girls after all and what do little girls like to do – dress up! I decided on puffy flower girl tutus and thought this would make a fun DIY wedding project. I immediately checked YouTube and found helpful video tutorials offering tips and a visual guide.

tutu-supplies

Here is what I used and instructions to make a no sew flower girl tulle skirt:

1. Spool of Satin Ribbon for the waistband. (Approx: $3-$5)
Measured 18″, tied a knot. (this is to tie in a bow at the end)
Measured 20″, tied a knot. (this is to wrap around the waist)
Measured 18″, cut the ribbon. (this is to tie in a box at the end)

2. Pick your tulle colors. (On Sale for $1 a yard)
Mocha Tulle (9 yrds)
Blush Pink Tulle (3 yrds)

3. Razor Cutter (Purchased with a coupon for $8)
Easiest way to cut even strips of tulle.

4. Sparkle Embellishments (Purchased on sale for $3)
A few glued throughout the skirt for a little sparkle.

5. Super Glue (Had some at home – $0)

You simply cut the stripes to your desired length and tie to the ribbon. Continue to push pieces together as you move along the ribbon. The more you fit on the ribbon the thicker the skirt. For a step by step tutorial visit YouTube.

I’ve decided I will pair the skirt with an ivory leotard, sparkly ballet flats and a brooch barrette for their hair. After the wedding the girls can play dress up in the skirts. What do you think?

A Sweet Way to Pop the Question

I’m already married but I’ve just been proposed to!  My sister found such a cute and creative way to ask me to be in her bridal party that I had to share.

Etsy Seller: Preston’s Event Planning

I was out with my sister when she handed me a gift bag and told me to open it.  Inside was a small square box wrapped in ribbon.  When I pulled off the ribbon and opened the box, I found a candy ring pop and a message written on the top inside lid of the box, “Will you be my matron of honor?”  The invitation wasn’t a surprise to me but the way she popped the question sure was.  I’ve been in many weddings but was never asked in such a fun way.

Can you think of any other creative ways to ask your family and friends to be in your wedding?
