5 Incredible Sequin Wedding Dresses

Do you love sequin wedding dresses? We do, too! See the dresses below and get inspired on the daily with our FREE feed.

[T]here are few things that capture my attention like the words sequin wedding dresses can. And it’s not just because I happen to love all things sequinned (because I do). I’m more in awe over how designer Truvelle effortlessly pairs the two together in a most elegant way. Some sequins I’ve seen can be loud or overwhelming, but these sequin wedding dresses are soft and feminine. They’re more like tiny shimmering diamonds capturing the light as you walk down the aisle; as you smile during the reception toasts; as you make your first steps onto the dance floor as newlyweds. Can’t you just picture it? I can.

And where sequins end, other details emerge — like the open back with bow sash, or the v-neck bodice; and let’s not forget about that flowy chiffon fabric. It’s all just so stunning and I just can’t wait to share these wedding dresses with you today.

6 Modern Ways to Wear a Brooch

[A] brooch is typically seen as a vintage accessory, right? You may think of a brooch as something your grandmother would wear pinned to her blouse, or something your mother keeps in a jewelry box for special occasions. But a brooch isn’t limited to vintage weddings alone. It’s possible to pull off a modern look with a brooch, and today we’re showing you six ways to do it. You’ll also be able to cross off something old, something new, and something blue from your list. Now you just need to borrow something — oh, and one of these. With each of these finds, we’re also telling you why it’s a modern twist on a traditionally vintage look. Enjoy!

And finally, this brooch ribbon necklace is more modern because of the ribbon. Instead of pearls or a traditional chain, this necklace ties in the back with a single satin ribbon. I adore this piece. By White Garden Lace.

Modern & Romantic Chiffon Wedding Gown

[I] loved everything about my wedding gown, right down to the very last stitch. But when I see a wedding gown like this, it makes me wonder how anyone can pick the perfect gown anymore. How can you decide when there are so many incredible + awe-inspiring options? I guess it comes down to this — wait for the one that steals your breath. The one you keep thinking about over, and over. The one that, when tried on, just feels right. I guess those rules never go out of style.

Today we’re sharing an utterly romantic chiffon wedding gown from Truvelle. This gown is perfect for a spring or summer wedding (perhaps mountainside?) paired with a one of these and a handful of boho accents. But that’s just me. Take a look and see why I’m so nuts over it…

Romantic Chiffon Wedding Gown

For starters, this wedding gown features a sweetheart neckline and a low back. The skirt is made from a whopping ten yards of hand-draped chiffon. The bodice is made of French lace; while the back dips into a lace up. I love, love, love the back. Take a look at this beautiful gown:

Ahh, so stunning. Also, I felt it worth noting that this dress also has a fully boned top for structure and support, which means many brides can skip the bra on this one.

Beach Wedding Rings for Bridesmaids Gifts

Are you planning a beach themed wedding? This post is for you! Be sure to subscribe for posts straight to your inbox.

[H]i, lovelies! If you’re planning a wedding on the beach this summer, there’s one themed gift that bridesmaids will enjoy for years to come. We spotted these beach wedding rings over at The Manerovs, maker of insanely gorgeous handmade (and hand-sculpted) jewelry. Their stacking rings are some of my favorites, especially their sea-inspired finds resembling coral, seashells, and starfish. There are even some gorgeous raw gemstones. These beach wedding rings would make wonderful gifts for your bridesmaids this season, and don’t forget a little something blue or sea-inspired for yourself, too.

Beach Wedding Rings

If I had to pick a favorite, it would be this entire stacking set. Take a look at that raw gemstone — it’s gorgeous.
