Wedding Inspo//Dresses Edition

So, I'm engaged and all and now comes the beautiful part of planning for the wedding.

That sounded a bit sarcastic, I didn't mean it to be. I'm actually really excited and I can't wait to crack my knuckles and turn this wedding into a beautiful, fabulous, unique-to-me and-Ben-only, party. Since we got engaged, Ben and I have spent hours pouring over wedding blogs, looking at different flower arrangements and lighting fixtures, venues and catering options, listening to DJ's and calling photographers, all to curate some that really speaks to us and our tastes. I'm actually pleasantly surprised by how much interest Ben has shown. I knew he would care about the location, food, bar, general feel, but he's been so helpful and has added so many of his own ideas--it's been a really nice thing to do together!

I thought it would be fun to document a little bit of that process on this blog, so I'm going to start a little series here and share with you guys some of the things I've been kicking around in my head.

First up, dresses.

I'm actually not very concerned about the dress because I feel pretty confident about my own style and I'm not too hung up on the idea of finding "the one". I want to surround myself with a lot of options and I'll pick one one of these days when the mood strikes me. But I do have a general idea of what I want to look like which is helpful (think Carolyn Bessett Kennedy drinking dandelion tea at a Grateful Dead concert).

Here's some stuff floating around my top secret pinterest board (all my wedding pinterest boards are secret and have been for awhile because I couldn't bear for anyone to see how tragically uncool I am pinning wedding ideas and what not):

Don't you just want to kill yourself over the back of that dress?
Found here.

This is that Carolyn Bessette hippie-love child dress I was telling you guys about. 

Like cool, whatever-ballerina betch?
Skirt found here.

And this girl was like, too cool to even have a wedding. 
I dig everything about this. It's like she just woke up one morning, threw her hair into a pony and was like yeah, let's go do this.
Photo found here.

So that's sort of what's knocking around in my head right now. Give me your brutally honest opinions if you'd like:)


  1. I would definitely recommend Etsy for your dress. I bought mine for $200 and it was handmade and so pretty. She was super nice and the dress fit and looked perfect.
    If you're interested, here's her shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/LAmei?ref=l2-shopheader-name

    Or just float around Etsy and check out the other dresses people have and make. You can get some ridiculous savings done on there! I also got my wedding band on Etsy too! Also, check out Modcloth's wedding stuff. :)

    1. Girl, I'm all over etsy! I'll check out that shop though!

  2. YES to this series. I love the 2nd dress. also have you heard of Laure De Sagazan? probably. but just incase: http://www.lauredesagazan.fr/collection/robes-de-mariee-2015 (I'm pretty sure they're stupid expensive and really hard to get outside of Paris but they're nauseatingly beautiful and worth looking at) xo

    1. Ugh, I have totally heard of them and they're impossible to get. I hate seeing beautiful dresses and following the links to a Europe-only shop. Heartbreaking. Must look away.

  3. The ballerina style is so pretty. I'd get married in that if I could.



  4. I love the first one so much!! Go for it!!
