It’s been over four years since my dream wedding day and honestly there isn’t anything I would change about that day. I had the traditional wedding day I always wanted, complete with a ballroom, ballgown, and tiara to match. That doesn’t mean I don’t think about different ways I could’ve went about my dream day. A part of me wouldn’t have minded going for a more modern feel, where I could really flex my style muscles and contemporary tastes. The Loverly Dream Day Style Challenge was the perfect opportunity to do that.
There were three types of wedding venues to choose from and I immediately went for the City Glam Setting. I will always be a city girl at heart and having a dream day at a historic museum or a swanky rooftop overlooking Manhattan is my kinda party! Crisp white linens, tall glass centerpieces with floating orchids, and a killer view is the perfect setting for the modern wedding style I want.
The Chiffon & Crystal Shirred Gown from Jim Hjelm would be the perfect dress to walk down the aisle. I still get the ball gown effect with the chiffon and crystal cascade skirt with a modern twist aka the one silk organza strap and slim mermaid fit.
I have a thing for birdcage veils and the nostalgic vibe it brings to a wedding dress. But I didn’t want just any birdcage veil – it needed to have something extra. The Chenille Dot Mini Hat has just enough veil with chenille dots and mini hat that gives me the fashionable boost my outfit needs without taking away from the dress. For special occasions I always wear my hair up and out of my face so the veil would go great with an updo.
As for the accessories, I would take the “Something Blue” concept to a whole other level. Blue Sapphire and Diamond Stud Earrings and Vintage Pendant from Fifth and Bond are the pops of color I need in any outfit (and it’s also my birthstone!). I also can’t resist showing off little peeps of color with the Milk and Honey I Do Pumps as I walk down the aisle.
