A Pink Celebration: The Perfect Bridesmaid Dress

Wedding season is starting full throttle! Times of celebration, love, new relationships, community, and joyous gatherings fill my heart with much gladness!

092I love being able to witness two people coming together in the most unifying manner. Knowing that life together doesn’t actually mean it will be perfect, possibly the way we dreamed or fantasied it to be. But, it will be one of the most satisfying, enjoyable and cherished events in life. 091

When you are two becoming one, you open yourself up to experiences in life that cease to exist otherwise.

So to all you future brides out there… I hope and trust that as you experience preparations, anticipation, and the busyness of it all, you’ll be reminded you are giving yourself and allowing yourself to embark on one of lifes greatest unknown adventures!

Flowers are one of them for many weddings!

Which color scheme, how many, petite, rustic, bright, full and fragrant… The list really can go on for a while!  076 069 065
But the right dress, the right color and style of that dress – that seems to matter more; which in all fairness and reality, it should!

Being a past bride myself, I know that you want to feel beautiful, stunning, breath taking! You want to be the best looking one, along with, but slightly better looking than, the groom!

086Now after your mom finally finds the perfect `Mother of the Bride` dress, you must focus on your long time, trusted and loved friends – your bridesmaids!

088Because they are your dear-to-heart, trouble-making, late night, partying, wine and cheese dining gals… They must look ravishing. Illuminating you, as they stand beside you in your even more dominant and radiant gown!

081This creatively crafted fuchsia J.O.A. designed dress will do the trick!

The dress shines boldly with it`s vibrant color and unique straps!

The Simple Bride

When my fiance and I decided to tie the knot this year… we decided on a simple “at home” private ceremony between us and our two children. It seemed silly to go out and buy a fancy big wedding dress… but I still wanted to look like a bride. I guess you could say that because this was a simple wedding… I needed a simple look.

I ventured out ALL over the city and tried to find a simple off-white dress.  I didn’t know what it needed to look like but I knew if I saw a certain type of dress, it would be “the one”.  I found a simple one, but thought it needed something to dress it up a bit.

The search continued for all the fun stuff like finding accessories and I thought of no other place other than FARMINISTA and TONIC.  I had had my eye on a this lace kimono weeks ago.. and thought it would look gorgeous for a wedding. Sure enough it worked perfect with my dress and the rest is history. It was easy finding earrings at Tonic/Farminista and I found the perfect pair that worked with an existing large pearl necklace I had.  I made my own flowers with greenery from Anthology…. which worked perfect with my dress choice.

Ever since I was a little girl I’ve dreamed of the day I’d get married to the man of my dreams, and now that that day has come, it feels surreal…creating my dream day has been as amazing as I always thought it would be! I’m taking it all in and trying to remember that this short period of planning is going to fly by!

Now that I’ve got the ring and the dress, it’s time to find the perfect dress for those special ladies standing by my side on the big day!

Now that I’ve got these great dresses for my ladies, it’s time use the wedding as an excuse to buy myself at least one little white dress. If you get one dirty, you need a back-up…right?
