Who loves a good deal on wedding dresses?? Here are the details for a big sale that is starting today, October 16th, and going through this Sunday the 19th.
Belles and beaus, I am going to share a little secret with you today about what I did to get in shape for my own wedding….Bride Arms!
Ladies…how many of you have dreamed about your wedding dress for years, but have never given a thought to what you’ll put on for your rehearsal dinner? Well, you’re in good company…it didn’t occur to me to consider my rehearsal dinner dress until this summer, just a month or so before my wedding! Many brides these days are opting to wear white or ivory for their rehearsal dinner, just in case anyone should forget who the bride is (ha!). I’ve gathered some lovely LWD (little white dress) inspiration for those of you wanting to get on board with this trend (or for brides wanting to go short on their big day!). Behold:
1. Nicolette by Ruche, $68.99
Hello belles and beaus! It has been a few days (okay, maybe a week or two) since my last post….last-minute wedding planning is in full swing here. Today I am delivering some inspiration featuring one of the latest trends in wedding gowns: spaghetti straps! I love this delicate detail…so feminine. It shows off the same amount of skin as a strapless dress, but gives a greater sense of security. There’s something almost ballerina-esque about it. Here are some of my favorite spaghetti strap gowns at the moment:

Back in May we talked about the Brides Against Breast Cancer Charity Wedding Gown Sale and Bridal Show taking place in Charlotte. Now, Durham gets a shot at discounted wedding dresses while at the same time supporting a great cause!
Mark your calendars: The Brides Against Breast Cancer Charity Wedding Gown Sale and Bridal Show is taking place Sunday, July 13 at the Washington Duke Inn and Golf Club in Durham, NC. The sale will feature new and already-loved wedding gowns ranging from $99-$3,900 and sizes 4-18 (keep in mind that wedding dresses tend to run small, so if you are normally a size 4, you likely will wear a size 6 or 8 wedding gown). Durham-area wedding vendors will also be present at the show, so you can knock out some planning at the same time! I also hear that there will be lots of exciting prizes and giveaways.
Visit the Brides Against Breast Cancer webpage to register to attend or volunteer for the event. The VIP Unveiling of the Gowns Reception will take place from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., and general admission for the sale will be 1:00 to 6:00 p.m. Buying general admission tickets ahead of time saves money, as the tickets cost $5 online but $7 at the door. Ticket purchases are tax deductible.
Brides Against Breast Cancer supports efforts to deliver free information and services to children and adults impacted by cancer.
Go register, belles! Happy shopping!
Here in the Carolinas, it’s no secret that we love our blooms. Dogwood, Carolina jasmine, magnolias, lilies, hydrangeas, roses, gardenias…we have some truly stunning flowers in our region! It seems only fitting, then, that we would show our love for flowers by adorning our wedding gowns with pretty blooms. Here are a few of my current favorite gowns showcasing floral prints and embellishments:
