Blue Bridesmaid Dresses

7 Nov

Blue is a perennial favorite – it can be warmed with gold tones in the winter, or a crisp, preppy navy in the midst of an east coast clambake wedding.

While I adore Priscilla of Boston & Vera Wang’s collections, sometimes, it’s fun to find something a bit out of the ordinary.

Here are a few of my favorite blue bridesmaid dresses (or they could even be wedding guest dresses).

Your Last Maiden Monogram

4 Nov

As you walk down the aisle, ready to embrace your new groom and your new name, sometimes a touch of who you are, and where you came from, can be that nostalgic touch that makes a difference.

I ordered one of these custom monograms, not only for me, but as something that my future children could maybe use on their big day. I don’t know what it is about it – that something blue that also is a bridge from who you are, to who you’re becoming – but it made me a little misty-eyed just thinking about it.

It’s strange, my monogram is one of my accessories that I just couldn’t do without.
