Crystal Tea Room Wedding: Daniel + Veronica

This Crystal Tea Room wedding in Philadelphia was magnificent! Daniel and Veronica were married this past January at a venue named the Crystal Tea Room in downtown Philadelphia. Daniel from Daniel Fugaciu Photography captured their wedding and tells us all about the details. Daniel says, “As opposed to their awesome engagement session last fall, Daniel and Veronica’s wedding day was a rather chilly one, to say the least. They got ready at Lowes hotel in center city Philadelphia, and when we were all ready to rock, we had their first look on the 33rd floor of the hotel with superb views of the City of Brotherly Love…”

“We walked to the beautiful Crystal Tea Room which was minutes away and had our share of cold for the day already. The intricate architecture of Wanamaker building made for great photos with the love birds and the bridal party later. I can already say Finley Catering won me over and it’s only the second time I’m photographing in their knockout venue.”

What to Wear Under Low Back Wedding Dresses

Once you’ve found the perfect wedding dress, whether it’s a low back, halter, strapless, one-shoulder, sweetheart, or other neckline style, it’s essential to wear the proper lingerie. A wedding gown needs to have a flattering and seamless fit. Your lingerie should fit the very same way! We’ve teamed up with Dominique Intimates to share some of their elegant bridal lingerie options with you today. There are a few from their collection we love for low back wedding dresses, since they offer a seamless, low-as-you-can-go back plus tons of support. Here are some of our favorites from their boutique.

17 Bridesmaid Maxi Dresses They’ll Actually Wear Again (Promise.)

Are you planning a summer wedding? Do you want to find perfect bridesmaid dresses they’ll love so much you’ll pretty much win at this whole bride thing? Then you’ve come to the right place! But first… Emma here, and I’m curious: have you jumped on board with this whole maxi skirt / maxi dress trend yet? If not, man oh man are you strong and steadfast in your fashion choices. I swear, I almost ALWAYS cave. Remember when they said ankle boots were the new thing? I loathed them… and now I wear these (and love them). Jeggings? I swore up and down I’d never wear them. And I am wearing them this very second as I write this. It just takes me a bit longer to come around to a trend. I guess I sometimes wait to see if I can actually pull it off, you know? Well, except for jumpsuits, and rompers. And those weird floral parachute pants everyone is raving about. Sorry, guys. Never gonna happen. But I digress.

When it comes to summer weddings, bridesmaid maxi dresses are one of the greatest ideas ever, second to when people started putting pockets on dresses and skirts. (I love that. I reached into my skirt pocket the other day and pulled out a pacifier and a pair of baby socks. It just works.) A maxi dress is usually long in length, pairs with sandals or heels extremely well, and is ultra-comfy, even in hot weather. Case in point? If you choose maxi dresses for your bridesmaids, they will LOVE them. And they’ll admire you for being the coolest bride ever, defying the laws of uncomfortable, unflattering, over-priced frocks they’ll never wear again. I swear, you guys, I love maxi dresses way more than I should.

To inspire you, here’s a collection of gorgeous bridesmaid maxi dresses we love from BLUSH — all handmade. (And you know we’re crazy for handmade wedding finds around here.) Scroll down to see my favorite (and help me pick a color, I really need some advice on this one).

Note: Mad love to our Fall/Winter brides — some of these have sleeves, too! And some of these are short and not quite maxi dresses, but they’re made from the same material and they’re just as awesome.
