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.

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.
