Bridesmaid Looks I’m Loving

I’ve recently finalized my bridal party decisions—but I’ve yet to actually ask anyone yet. While I prepare to ask everyone, I’ve been doing some brainstorming! I created a secret board on Pinterest, and went crazy pinning bridesmaid dresses I love.    This way, once I ask each person, I’ll give her access to the board so she can see what I’m thinking. I thought this would be a good way to share and gather feedback from everyone at once.  Then when we go to the store to try on dresses we can focus our efforts.

Since I just can’t wait I thought I’d share a few of my favorites here with you all!  I’d love to know what you think!  Ignore the colors of the dresses below; these are just the designer’s sample pictures.  If you want more information on the dresses you can click on the pictures, and they’ll bring you to the website where you can see sizing, color and price information!

I don’t think I want my bridesmaids to wear long dresses- because it could be pretty warm at the end of May.  With that being said, I’m not completely ruling out a long dress- here are a few longer dresses that I found and liked:

I’m obsessed with the neckline of this dress ! It definitely needs something right where the seam is between the top and bottom– and I personally think it would look absolutely stunning in black with a pretty (sparkly!) belt/sash

Another long dress with a unique neckline is this number by Alfred Sung (you’ll see a shorter version below, because I like the style so much!)  I think accessorizing this dress with a necklace might be too much, so I’d probably go for some gorgeous statement earrings.

Candle of the month – October


Well..  Now that it’s mid-October, there’s no denying that fall is upon us.  This month I picked up a totally festive, but still fun fall candle.  Blueberry Pumpkin Patch by Bath and Body Works.  You may be catching on by now, that I really like the Bath & Body Works candles, I think they burn the cleanest and they have the best fragrances.  (Trust me; I’ve tried a LOT of candles over the past few years.)
