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!!

For the Boys- Part Deux [Wedding Accessories]

Last week, we talked about your groom’s attire for the big day. We had mentioned accessories, but then, we became kinda obsessed with all the fun options out there for the guys, so thought we’d do a special post about them, with tons of pictures and ideas. Enjoy!

{Happy Feet}

You finally found the perfect shoes to go with your dream wedding gown, so make sure your man’s shoes are up to par, and have fun with the socks too!

{Bow Ties & Neckties}

Whenever they’re not looking at you, guests will be looking at your groom’s handsome face, so why not add a bright pop of color or a fun pattern right below by adding a cool necktie or bow tie to the ensemble?

Did you catch the bow tie tutorial we featured last week?

A few of our favorite bow tie makers:

Ultra hip Etsy seller, Fox & Brie, make vintage-inspired bow ties, neckties, and pocket squares.

Forage Bow Ties have some super fun patterns and come in the most adorable packaging. This could be a great gift for your groomsmen, too!

And, of course, our friends over at Launderette.

{Suspenders}

What was initially used as the more practical part of an outfit is now making headway as the accessory du jour: suspenders.

{Cufflinks}

Now, here’s the part that’s “anything goes”. Cufflinks are those tiny little details where you have literally endless options.

You can get something special just for the wedding.

Go with your wedding color.

Have your own “something old” and wear a family heirloom.

Or have some fun with them and commemorate your favorite sports team.

We had so much fun putting together this post, but have to admit that it was pretty hard to choose our favorite images since we just kept finding so many awesome ideas. So, good luck, friends, and enjoy the hunt for those special little details!
