The Perfect White Dress

With the vast amount of wedding dresses out there, it can be a very overwhelming task to find the perfect gown.  I searched around my fair share of bridal shops until I came to Mary Me Bridal and found the one.  I loved my Mori Lee gown and the black sash with detailed beading finished off my overall look.

How cute is the bridal suite at our venue, Turnip Rose?  It made for the perfect bridal gown photograph. 

Here’s the view of the dress from the back…

And now this baby is safely boxed away in my closet thanks to Wedding Gown Preservation Co.

Have a fabulous day friends!



P.S. Today is the hubby’s birthday, Happy Birthday Ry!


Wedding Gown Preservation

A bride’s wedding dress is a huge part of her wedding day, obviously!  Having my wedding dress cleaned and preserved after the wedding was very important to me.  Luckily, the bridal shop I bought my gown from, Mary Me Bridal, provided an excellent company in Wedding Gown Preservation Co.  They clean and preserve the wedding gown, giving it a 100 year guarantee.  In the event the dress begins to yellow, they promise to re preserve the gown or refund the money in the case they are unable to remove the yellow color.

The box it came in has a viewing window so you’re able to see the gown.


Sure it’s just sitting in a box and there’s nothing you can really do with it but put it in your closet, but it’s still there to remind you of the best day of your life!  I’d highly recommend Wedding Gown Preservation Co. to brides looking to preserve or even just clean their gowns after the wedding day.  They’re prices are very reasonable and they have been around since 1913 so you know they are experts in the field!

Have a fabulous day!



Sneak Peek: My Wedding Dress

One of the most important decisions a bride will make during the planning process is choosing her wedding dress.  All eyes are on you, after all!  I had so many ideas on what I wanted my dress to look like, but once I put on “the one”, I just knew.  I picked a Mori Lee gown from Mary Me Bridal, with ruffled organza and a Tara Lauren sash with beaded detailing.  In the link to the gown, you’ll notice that the dress came with a removable flower which I did not use.  I think the black sash was the perfect detail to complete my look… what do you think?  Pretty amazing right?!  I loved my dress!  And special thanks to my Grandma for that adorable hanger!

There’s a lot more wedding dress pictures where that came from… stay tuned!

Have a great rest of your day!



Wedding Dress Sash

The wedding dress appointments have begun and I’ve come across one detail that I really love – dress sashes! I’ve seen them in plenty of pictures and on numerous brides and never thought much about it until I tried one on for myself … and loved it! The sash adds a personal touch to your wedding gown and also that pop of color. In my case, it would be black which would also match my shoes and bridesmaid dresses 🙂 Flowers, pins, and brooches are always fun too!

Check out these beautiful gowns and dress sashes, don’t you love them?

Lace Wedding Dress Love

I love lace. It’s soft, timeless, and oh so elegant. As I start to begin my search for the perfect dress, I wanted to share another one of my favorite gowns with you (here’s the first). Ivanka Trump, socialite, Vice President of The Trump Organization, and of course the daughter of billionaire Donald Trump, wore a stunning custom-made Vera Wang gown that I absolutely love. New York fashion critic Cathy Horyn said it best when she wrote, “we’re so used to seeing brides in strapless dresses that Ms. Trump’s gown made a fresh statement.” The dress, inspired by Grace Kelly’s wedding gown, is truly a classic!

Wedding Gown Stunner by Ali Rahimi

Happy Friday everyone!  Enjoying my one day off this week getting some things done around the house and blogging of course!  One of my favorite wedding blogs, Grey Likes Weddings is allowing brides and those obsessed with weddings (I’m both :)) to share their own personal blogs on their website and I think it’s a wonderful idea!  Today the topic is on favorite wedding gowns and boy do I have a gorgeous one for you!  I first came across this custom-made dress by designer Ali Rahimi in an Inside Weddings Magazine long before I was a bride-to-be and let’s just say I fell in love.  Gazelle, the bride, looks absolutely stunning!  Check out the amazing photos by Apertura.

Oh yeah … and I love the veil too!  Goes perfect with the dress!

The gown was designed by Ali Rahimi at Mon Atelier Bridal Salon in Los Angeles, CA.  I would love to find something similar for my big day!  There’s still a lot of things I need to take care of before I really delve into wedding dress shopping but I’m definitely looking forward to it 🙂

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
