Bridal Birdcage Veil

My good friend Ebony wore the most stunning birdcage veil at her wedding a few years ago, and I absolutely adored hers. She looked so classic and beautiful, and really complemented her dress. I just had to share some photos of her on her big day!

I think there are more and more brides that opt for the birdcage veil, or bridal hairpieces instead of the full veil. I think they really allow you to have a bit more uniqueness to your look. What do you think about fascinator veils?

Black tie mismatched bridesmaids

I hadn’t thought to do another post on mismatched bridesmaid dresses, as you all know by now how much of a fan I am of them! But a friend in LA sent me this a few days ago, which was featured on her local tanning specialist, Sunkissed by Jenni website.

These ladies look absolutely stunning, and I think are such a true representation of a perfectly ‘mismatched’ bridesmaids for a black tie wedding. They are suitably formal, while still looking like they are part of the same bridal party.

Short and sweet, and sorry for blabbing on so much about mismatched bridal dresses. I am clearly keen to do this in my own wedding!

What do you think of these ladies and their dust rose ensemble?

Country style mismatched bridesmaid dresses

I stumbled upon Shannen Norman‘s website via Style Me Pretty‘s wedding feature of Jenny & Chad. These mismatched bridesmaid dresses are definitely among my favourite that I’ve seen.

The vintage style of these ladies coupled with a range of cool to summer colours really steals the show. Love it! What do you think?

Highly recommend checking out Shannen Norman‘s photography, the photographs she captures are truly stunning! I’m going to feature her this week on Inspire Me Wednesday so stay tuned!

Chanel & Thomas: 14 April 2012

Gorgeous location, golden weather, a stunning bride and insanely happy couple.

What a perfect setting for a wedding, in Adelaide at St. Peter’s College Chapel. The school chapel of Thom’s, complete with benches placed horizontally and sideways to the alter so that we could all see the beautiful Chanel walk down the aisle to her groom. The stain glass detail in the chapel was truly beautiful, as well as picture perfect courtyards for photographs.

To go back in time, I met Chanel and Thomas at university on the Gold Coast, with Chanel and I becoming instant friends, and close ever since. We may live in different states, but we catch up a few times a year and always on emails, texts, phone calls, and of course Facebook. The now happy couple were inseparable even as friends at university, so it comes as no surprise to see how incredibly happy they make each other in love.

This photo is pre-relationship days…you can’t tell the difference right?! 😉

I still distinctly remember the day that Chanel called me, and was all excited saying “I kissed Thom last night”! And two years later, an excited text while on holidays in Thailand after Thom proposed to her. Couldn’t be happier for these two, they are such a picture perfect couple that have built such a wonderful life for themselves and their beautiful puppies.

Vintage short wedding dress

I just came across this dress scouring Pinterest. Can you say obsessed?

It was posted to Pinterest via Lost in Vogue but there wasn’t any info about where the dress originated. I absolutely adore it. While I’m still unsure about the style of wedding I’ll have in the future, I have definitely entertained the thought of a shorter style dress. This feels perfect for a cocktail style wedding, classy and stylish!

There’s some more short designer dresses on my Facebook page.
