Prince Harry and Meghan Markle – Royal Wedding Part 1

In 2011, pre-motherhood, I was happy to stay up all night to watch Kate and William’s royal wedding.  The wedding of Harry and Meghan Markle on the other hand…well, I have a three year old, so sleep is pretty precious.  I knew what I had to do: DVR the event that is the Superbowl of … Continue reading Prince Harry and Meghan Markle – Royal Wedding Part 1

An Alternative to the Bridesmaid Drape

It’s 55 degrees here in Houston today, and you know what that means: I could google winter in Texas memes all day. To be fair, it IS still officially autumn, but the cold front we’re having is definitely getting me excited for the winter weddings coming up.  Winter weddings in Texas are great because you … Continue reading An Alternative to the Bridesmaid Drape

Forever 21 Wedding Shop

Forever 21 has a wedding shop. Let me repeat that: Forever 21 has a wedding shop! We had the most stunning bride and groom elope here this past Thursday, and the bride’s gown was GORGEOUS.  I commented on it and she excitedly told me she got it from Forever 21 – I didn’t even know … Continue reading Forever 21 Wedding Shop

Current Wedding Trend Obsession: Juliet Cap Veils

It’s hard to believe that eight years ago, I was blogging about the vintage wedding trend, focusing on Roaring Twenties style.  Short, mysterious birdcage veils were all the rage. Now I’m obsessing over an even more vintage style (think 1500’s!) with the rise in sales of Juliet cap veils.  Named after the most famous Shakespearian … Continue reading Current Wedding Trend Obsession: Juliet Cap Veils

Wedding Trends 2017

Watching the ebb and flow of wedding trends over the years is one of the best parts of our job.  In years past, it seems trends would last 5-10 years for most not working in the biz.  Now, we can virtually attend hundreds of weddings in one sitting, thanks to our little ol’ friend Pinterest, … Continue reading Wedding Trends 2017

Pippa Middleton’s Spring Wedding

Those Middleton gals sure do know a thing or two about #springweddings! Kate showed us how it was done in 2011, and we loved seeing photos of Pippa’s wedding last week. Dreamy details that caught my eye: Pippa’s MIL’s emerald heels via here The Royal Toddlers via here Pippa’s custom Manolos via here The presence … Continue reading Pippa Middleton’s Spring Wedding

BHLDN Capelets & Coverups

    I absolutely love the idea of a bride transforming her look after the ceremony for the reception. It used to be quite popular to slip into a second gown and take off your veil, but now the industry has become super creative with the simple add-on or take-away of a bolero, wrap, or … Continue reading BHLDN Capelets & Coverups

Wedding Rompers

  Rompers.  They’re everywhere and they’re adorable.  Unfortunately, my post-baby belly prevents me from wearing them for fear I’d look…pregnant.  But since we’re not talking about me, we’re talking about you, and your wedding: would you wear one to your wedding?  This could be a gorgeous option for brides going for a more casual fete, … Continue reading Wedding Rompers

Sequin Bridesmaid Dresses

    You can often tell the year a wedding took place by the attire worn by the wedding party in a photo.  In pictures of my parents’ wedding, it is clearly early 1970’s because of the long-sleeved bridesmaid dresses with collars that are practically turtlenecks.  I don’t even know what to call that style … Continue reading Sequin Bridesmaid Dresses
