Today, I'm beyond excited to share my latest work with Lover.ly - the ultimate wedding planning search engine. For those of you who aren't familiar with Lover.ly - it's basically a dream come true for any bride! Lover.ly is a one-stop-shop wedding planning where brides and grooms find new ideas, people to hire and oodles of things to buy.
To quickly clarify things: no, I'm not getting married anytime soon (not that I know of... haha) BUT when Lover.ly and I both got to talking, we faced the facts -- let's be real, every girl already has some sort of "dream wedding" pinterest board.... am I right? So of course, when they asked me to take part in their "Set the Scene" challenge, I said yes!
Challenge: Create a dream wedding look for a specific themed venue.
Beach affair, city glam or rustic chic - which did I choose? Rustic Chic. Yes, yes, I know... a lot of my friends would quickly dub me to pick city glam. But for some reason, I love how rustic chic is more simple, romantic and intimate.
See below for my take on the rustic chic "dream wedding look"!
Since I have tendencies to add glitter to everything... going for a romantic, rustic setting required me to hold back from the glam Vera Wang ball gown. BUT in a weird way, I actually didn't mind at all. Personally, I don't see layers of tulle as a look I'd like for a wedding. I've always envisioned either a sleek satin mermaid fit or the simplicity of a silk empire waist gown. For some reason - simple is just better to me.
As such, when I spotted this beautiful BHLDN Odessa gown - I just knew it was perfect for that rustic chic look. A simple silhouette, but with a gorgeous lace open back - I fell in love with it. It has a sweet, romantic style with just the right amount of intricate detail in the lace but without overwhelming embellishments.
For the headpiece - I considered a non traditional look - such as the vintage clip (above) as well as this birdcage veil. Then last but not least... I certainly had to add some sparkle to the mix - hence the touch of bling on the beautiful Kate Spade D'Orsay heels, the box clutch and pave drop down earrings.
