The Perfect LWD

Bri Here!  Take it from me: it’s fun to wear bright, colorful patterns during your wedding events to stand out as the bride, but there’s something particularly special about wearing white or cream.  As the bride, you will undoubtedly shine on the big day in your gorgeous gown, but it’s equally special to wear white to your rehearsal dinner, bridal shower, bachelorette party or any other event honoring your soon to be nuptials.

With the growing popularity of the LWD, it’s become much easier to find a great white dress. This season, lace has been a very popular trend, and trust me, there is a silhouette and fabric for everyone. I’m highlighting my picks that will fit your wedding style depending on your search to find a LWD that is vintage inspired, embellished, boho, classic, lacey or modern.  Like I said, there’s something for everyone!

My tips for accessorizing and styling your LWD are:

– Go all white if your dress is truly white; a cute white heel is very chic.

– Compliment the white or cream with a pop color via a clutch, shoe or hair accessory.

– Wear a statement earring or bracelet to add a little bling

– When in doubt, wear a metallic or nude/tan shoe (any silhouette or heel height will work depending on your style and level of comfort)

– Enjoy every second of wearing white/cream… it’s your special time!!

Destination Inspiration: India

My obsession with Bravo’s new show Million Dollar Decorators has officially become out of control. It’s like Elle Decor come to life – what’s not to love?! The thing that took it over the edge? Nathan Turner’s Indian themed collaboration party with One King’s Lane that aired on last nights episode. Just look at him:

Adorable, right? And of course One Kings Lane launched the goods today and everything was amazing , and disappeared in the blink of an eye. BUT the inspiration lives on…


1. Invite, 2. Pillow, 3. Lantern, 4. Pouf, 5. Glassware, 6. Earrings, 7. Salt & Pepper Set, 8. Votives

Complete with marigold draping (just like Nathan) and voila!

I see a shoot in our near future featuring this aMAZEing inspiration board by the lovely Kelly Market – and possibly a trip featuring the same backdrop??

Fingers crossed…but for now it is wedding season and we couldn’t be more excited!! The amazing part about our job (or at least one – pretty much every aspect is amazing) is that we can use ALL of our inspirations for our weddings and events! Yippee!! Maybe we can use these colors for our Hawaii wedding…we’ll keep you posted.

Visit Kelly Market to see the details about each and everyone of these amazing items.
