Short & Sweet – 50s Cocktail Dress

Another great ebay find – this 50s cocktail dress would look swell on the right bride. I’m envisioning a supper-club feel for the reception, with a fantastic pillbox hat or a sweet birdcage veil with feathered details.

This beauty is listed at $65 – or best offer.

At Least There’s an Option for Pregnant Brides

It’s rare that a woman would plan to be pregnant on her wedding day, but hey, things happen! It’s refreshing to see that there are several companies that now cater to this niche market and allow brides to wear ivory or white and look and feel as beautiful as brides who aren’t expecting a new addition to the new family.

Here are some lovelies from Maternity Bride and Isabella Oliver.

Adventures in Inspiration Boards

I heart Polyvore. I create SO many inspiration boards… many of which will never see the light of day. But, it’s a great site to play around with colors, ideas and even for crazy over-the-top boards that I would NEVER consider… but can create for funsies.

Here’s our reception inspiration… to those of you who will be in attendance… “shh… keep it hush, hush.”

Gotta Decide On Shoes

Originally uploaded by KikiLaRae

I have 2 pair of potential wedding shoes (so far).

On top, we’ve got the funky Salvatore Ferragamo’s from Saks.

I love the stacked heel, the lucious leather, the comfort. These are all quality.

On the bottom are the Zara shoes that we got in San Francisco.

They are fairly comfy, I love the patent leather, and the wedge heel could prevent me from having my shoes sink into the grass as we do post-wedding, pre-reception photos.

I just can’t decide.
