When I first heard that Alfred Angelo had a Disney princess collection I thought it was a little weird. I loved Disney as a child, but I am not one of those who has carried that love into adulthood (except for maybe the Little Mermaid). However, today when I was scoping out their bridesmaid dress scene, I spotted this uber romantic gown inspired by Sleeping Beauty. The color is rose mist and dresses in these soft colors are becoming more and more popular. It's a unique touch to a Fall or Spring wedding especially if you are getting married outside preferably under a big oak tree.
Dry Bar is the perfect stop before your engagement party, any photo sessions (ahem big hair for the boudoir shoot), rehearsal dinner, and it's especially perfect for a girls afternoon before the bachelorette party.

So I've been eyeing those wire hangers that say in my case Mrs. Branson, but I have not been ecstatic about the cost! After getting one for me, my maids, and my mom I will be out about $150. While I consider myself a crafty person I do not consider myself even with pliers strong enough to make my own. Lucky for me I found this on The Knotty Bride!

If you’ve been dreaming of a BHLDN wedding and you don’t want to settle for anything less than the real thing, fear not they are having a sale! Here are my faves!
For the boho bride snatch up the Shasta Daisy Belt ($100) to jazz up a simple mermaid dress or adorn a flowy a-line.
I love this Sue Wong gown from Nordstrom! It’s $558 (seriously!) The tiers make a super romantic pick for a spring Garden wedding; I’m thinking Nasher Sculpture Center, hair in loose curls with a birdcage veil, long pearl necklace and blush pink heels.
As you'll learn I am obsessed with Etsy and I just had to share this adorable soap favor by Samiteo. The bars come wrapped, tied with a bow, and hang tag that you can personalize! This look is perfect for the shabby chic bride who isn't so crafty! You also get to pick your scent. I recommend lavender; everyone needs a little calming power after a wedding. And lastly for the bride on a budget it's $160 for 100 favors!

My fiance and I got engaged in Paris so I’m super biased to this theme, but I think it can work for any bride. Throw in a crepe station, pink and black details, and some French decor and you’ve got a Paris themed Bridal Shower or wedding!
I got engaged to my amazing fiance Quinn on April 9, 2012 in a park by the Eiffel Tower. I've truly enjoyed planning my wedding and I love blogging so even though there are a bazillion wedding blogs out there I wanted to start my own.
I'll be posting ideas, photos, and any helpful tips I gain along the way to the aisle next May. I have a pretty specific style which I like to call trendy vintage romantic boho. That has completely translated to my own wedding and hopefully here as well.
