Shopping for a wedding dress

This past weekend, my friend Charissa (newly engaged!) came down to visit for the weekend. While she was here we went to back to back, Bridal Salon appointments. Shopping for a wedding dress is just about the best day ever (even if its not for yourself)! I know that some girls don't like to shop for wedding dresses, but lets be honest. If you are reading a wedding inspiration blog, you're probably not one of those girls. heheh...

Anyhow, we were able to take photos at two of the bridal salons, so here we go:

We went to a Bridal Salon is called

Lovely Bride

, in West Hollywood. Its such a cute store, if any bride is in the LA area, I suggest you go there. Run Now! hehe.. Below are some photos of the shop. This shop makes me want to get married all over again, just so I can buy another wedding dress!

We also went to

J. Crew

in Los Angeles, to try on more wedding dresses of course! Having J. Crew Wedding dress just spells Charissa in every way. If any brides are looking at J. Crew for the wedding dress solutions, but wish to try on the dress before deciding, I suggest purchasing the dress to try it on. You can order their wedding dresses online, and it ships within just a few days.  J. Crew dresses really do look quite lovely in real life.

Anthropologie: Love at First Sight

Every bride loves Anthropologie, well lets be honest (even non brides love Anthro!!!) Brides can love Anthropologie even more when you take a peek of these lovely dresses from their wedding line: Bhldn It's so dreamy and has a period time statement to them. Meaning, these dresses look like they are from another time, don't you think?

All of these beautiful items are from Anthropologie's Wedding line: Bhldn

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo: Pumpkin Wedding

I absolutely love fall weddings! Especially, fall weddings inspired by mother nature. Today's wedding inspiration post is about turning a garden gourd into something beautiful... Its very much like a fairy-tale; like a Cinderella wedding, perhaps? All weddings should take a little inspiration from this post. Meaning, to always use your seasonal surroundings for your wedding decor, and if we are lucky, we can recreate something this beautiful.

Wedding Outfits: Inspiration

I tend to heart/admire many wedding items on Etsy. I don't know whether it's because it just appeals to me, or whether it inspires my wedding shop's product line. Either way, I know that I am not planning a wedding, so I find it rather funny. I gathered some of my favorite things on Etsy, to create some inspiration boards. Even though, I'm not planning a wedding, I think I still want to get all of these things!

Ivory Blush Pink

Color choices for weddings are so important to weddings. One of the most beautiful, romantic and soft color palette choices brides and grooms can make are the colors ivory, blush pink, and bright pinks. These colors are hopefully romantic, simply unstated and classic. Here are a few lovely images to inspire your wedding:
