Fall is such a beautiful season for weddings–the golden colors of the leaves, the darkening days that make sparkle start to really shine through, and the cozy fireside and rustic venues that are pitch perfect for autumn receptions. I created my fall line with all of these in mind, especially the fall colors of champagne, gold, copper and a crisper frosted white and silver. Here are a few bridal looks that work wonderfully for those of you still pulling that autumn wedding together or who are getting inspired for a big fall bash in 2015.
We all know the line that goes along with bridesmaid dresses: “AND you can wear it again!!” But the real nitty-gritty truth of the matter is: you will be hard-pressed to find a group of women who all love the same dress and look great in it. Let’s face it ladies, we all have different bodies that come along with their own set of strengths and weaknesses. We should dress them accordingly.
I like to think that bridesmaid style is a reflection of you, the bride. If your petite college roommate is drowning in a satin gown and your busty bestie is overflowing out of the strapless top, it may be time to try some different options.
The newer trend of mismatched dresses for bridesmaids is great for so many reasons. When all your best girls are fit and flattered in their dresses, it allows all the focus to be on you and your man on your wedding day.
It also allows your friends to choose their own budget. Typical bridesmaid dresses are exorbitantly expensive, and usually poorly made with cheap fabrics. These days there are so many avenues for finding amazing fashion at affordable prices. From flash sale websites to online consignment shops, and even shopping on Instagram, your options are limitless.
Here I have put together an entire bridal party look, all dresses are (well) under $100:
Have you ever met the black hole inside your handbag? It usually shows itself when you need to find something quickly, something like your passport and boarding pass in front of a tired and grumpy immigration officer… Not exactly how you’d want to start your honeymoon travels indeed!
Fret not Dear Brides, your wedding clutch bag could be your solution to ban that black hole away forever! Small in size and elegantly constructed on a snappy metal kiss lock frame, a bridal or bridesmaid’s clutch bag can be a great travel companion keeping all these travel knick knacks and important documents in check.
Whether it’s to hold your passport and boarding pass or your lip gloss and aspirins, you know that you won’t have to fumble into your
tightly packed-to-the-brim large travel handbag when you need to flash out your documents at the airport immigration or at the hotel check-in.
So, make sure to include one into your wedding trousseau!

We absolutely LOVE these natural birch shaving flowers. We have been working with these products for approximately two years now. We are constantly finding new ways to use them. They can be used for ring bearer pillows and flower girl baskets, spread around a tables, attached to candles, fillers in vases and more. The best part is that they do not die a few days after your big day. You can use them for years to come. Love the flowers, but looking for a pop of color?

You love your man, yes you do! That’s why when it’s time to say ‘I do’ it’s critical to involve him too! Has the thought crossed your mind about him getting COLD FEET? It’s natural to have worry and concern about your wedding day and often thoughts that begin with ‘ what if ‘ might cross your mind. While planning your special day, we have found the perfect way to bring light and humor to an otherwise nerve wrecking thought. Now, we really don’t think it’s all too common for Grooms to get cold feet but when your Groom unwraps these the evening before the big day day, it’s sure to bring a smile to his face just knowing how much you care.
GroomSocks have a wide selection of sock colors to match any wedding perfectly! From bright bold canary socks with snazzy aqua thread to a sophisticated black or navy sock with classic white or blue lettering. There is truly something for EVERYONE! Additionally, by ‘everyone’ we mean Father of the Bride, Groomsmen, Best Man and all the gleaming gents taking part in the big day! No more scratching your head about what affordable gift to present. This is it! Both practical and a cherished keepsake, some verses such as ‘in case you get cold feet’ can even be personalized with your wedding date!
