Ladies: listen up! Today we’re talking about what to wear under the dress. The wedding dress, to be exact. It’s important to wear the proper wedding shapewear to get that perfect fit. Today we’re tackling underwear. Bridal lingerie. Support. Proper straps. Size. Fit. Comfort. Pulling it all in. Tying it all together. Wearing something that makes you confident. Comfortable. Happy. Hugging those curves. The proper fit is the most important thing when it comes to the perfect wedding dress and, by picking the wrong undergarments, you could be getting a less-than-perfect fit. Read on to find out what to wear under your wedding dress and why it’s important. Oh, and gentlemen, if you’re reading this, head over to this post while us ladies get down to business.

This wedding dress was trashed! Brittany and Mario’s West Virginia trash the dress session was a blast. This couple married this past July and decided a “trash the dress” was just what was needed after Brittany’s dress suffered a blue icing accident during the reception. They worked with their wedding photographer, Olivia, from Liv Hefner Photography to put together a photo session that was artistic, fun, and a little colorful. Meet Brittany and Mario and see the paint fly after the click…

Are you looking for “something blue” with a little subtlety? We spotted this sweet yet subtle something blue hairpiece featuring a petite feather clip and a tiny pop of aqua blue accent feathers. Hackle feathers, ivory ostrich wisps, and the pearl cluster embellishment (which I love) finishes this pretty piece. By The Headband Shoppe.

Today we are sharing with you an incredible rustic real wedding with tons of handmade elements and a rustic, homespun flair. We love to hear the details directly from the bride, so take it away, Kendel!
She tells us, “Country, rustic, charming, antique, old-fashion, warm, fun and intimate. Just a few words I would use to describe our wedding day, August 14th, 2010. If I had to describe it in one sentence it would be: The most amazing day that I got to marry my best friend while surrounded by the charming handiwork of my friends and family who all came together to make our day really special and memorable.
Our wedding took place at Balls Falls Conservation Area in Jordan ON. During the reception we had a slide show and several games throughout the evening including the shoe game and the newly wed game, which were a lot of fun. We ended the night with a few fireworks and our car drove through two large fountain style fireworks as our exit.
Our wedding was truly a DIY wedding and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. If it wasn’t something I made personally then it was an item made by a friend or family member, and together everything came out looking great, and it was even nicer knowing it was made with love and hard work from those involved in the day.
We worked with a relatively small budget and yet everything was exactly what I wanted. I hope the images of our wedding inspire other couples to really consider DIY as well as the power of asking friends and family members for their expertise when it comes to planning a wedding. You don’t always have to rely on the ‘experts’ when there are experts all around you amongst your friends and family!

Cecily and Jacob’s peacock themed wedding is classy, sophisticated and unique. Their wedding took place at the beautiful Wright House in Mesa, Arizona just a few weeks ago. With colorful peacock feathers adorning everything from the brides headpiece, bouquet, flowers and decorations at the reception, we love how the peacock theme ties in with everything including the grooms tie. Their peacock themed wedding was captured by Aubry from Aubry Startin Photography.

I discussed my fascination with tulle earlier today (non-itchy tulle, of course), so I thought it appropriate to share a few more of my favorite things: the color pink and pearl embellishments. Needless to say, when I spotted this bohemian hair wreath by BowsnBerries it was love at first sight. This beautiful dusty pink rose flower hair clip is placed onto a handmade wired wreath, with glass pearl accents and a subtle mauve satin ribbon. Bohemian brides, you’ll especially love this look – plus, your bridesmaids can follow suit!
