I can’t believe how fast time has flown, summer is already gone and I’ve been married for 6 months! Whoa and I haven’t even blogged about the big day…seriously it was the best day. I was mad looking through photos that I didn’t have more of a half smile. I was just so happy!!!
Now that wedding season is coming to an end and the holidays are coming up, there is likely to be a lot of new engagements on the horizon. There are so many details that go into a wedding, and so much advice that people give you it can be overwhelming. I thought I would share my take on one of the most important parts of your wedding – the bridesmaids. These are the people that hold your hand, put on your bachelorette party and bring the champagne… So why put them in something turquoise and taffeta? Right??
However, when looking through bridesmaid selection, there wasn’t a lot to choose from. So, when Lauren and Maura from Paper Crown showed me their bridesmaid line… I fell in love!! I wanted a bridesmaid dress made for myself. The soft colors and flattering shapes were perfect for the people I hold most dear. The Paper Crown dress pictured was actually a top and skirt. The blogger in me, saw this as a practical; the girls could re-style the pieces and wear them again! However, I did go with a different dress for my sister, the maid of honor…! Enjoy the pictures and a special thanks to Timepiece Studio who captured the day perfectly! Hopefully they inspire
My wedding venue had a lot of exposed brick and wooden tables, so I went with a soft pink as our wedding color.
Then we got a little serious with the accessories… blush straws to match are a must.
Once again, the half smile wasn’t present….
The day goes by so quickly so enjoy every minute of it!
