aDRESSed

I thought I would introduce a new feature: aDRESSed.  One of the most fun parts of planning a wedding is finding the DRESS!  I had so much fun scouring the internet, blogs and magazines leading up to my dress shopping. So I thought this new feature would be designed around the DRESS!

First up, as the premiere post of aDRESSed is this adorable number by Aria.

I love everything about it. The length, the detailing of the fabric, the tiny sash and the candlelight color.  I think it would look great paired with one of Aria's bowties for the groom.  The price can't be beat ranging from $32-$52.

It makes me think of our favorite New Yorker, Carrie Bradshaw, and her courthouse ceremony to Big.  It was fashionable yet simple and not over the top.

I put together a little inspiration board for the perfect civil ceremony with a little after party.  Intimate details with a whimsical twist.

Bottom Row: An elegant but casual outdoor brunch, Something blue

And of course the best part, I redesigned that lovely Aria dress into a whimsical invitation.  Complete with red & teal accents and 2 little love birds.  I joined a fun scripted font that reinforced the romantic, intimate detailing of a private ceremony with a laidback casual font for the after party.


So what do you think? Do you like my first aDRESSed post?  Ready to see more? Leave me a comment and let me know.
