Wedding Dresses.This southern wedding overlooking the Ashley River in Charleston, South Carolina is so charming and pretty! I am in love with Tess + Rob’s choice of venue, the Lowndes Grove Plantation…as Tess explains, ‘with the breathtaking views of the water and the charm of the property it epitomizes the many reasons why we love the South.’ Don’t miss the tasteful mix of elegant meets rustic decor throughout this couples tented reception or my favorite, Tess’s really exquisite Monique Lhuillier gown called ‘Sunday Rose’. This dress looks like it was made for today’s featured bride designed in ivory silk satin organza featuring a strapless sweetheart neckline, pleated bodice, and rose embroidered a-line skirt. Enjoy!

The Ceremony
Our ceremony took place on the front lawn of the beautiful, quintessential southern mansion at Lowndes Grove overlooking the Ashley River. My husband and I met and fell in love in Charleston, SC and we knew we would eventually get married there. Lowndes Grove was the perfect location for us to get married; with the breathtaking views of the water and the charm of the property it epitomizes the many reasons why we love the South.
The Reception
Special Occasion Dresses.Our reception was also at Lowndes Grove and immediately followed the ceremony. We wanted our wedding to embrace the South, particularly since many of our guests were from out of town. Our guests were transported to the venue prior to the ceremony by trolleys. We had a cocktail party with a jazz band playing on the balcony and passed hors d’oeuvres of fried green tomatoes and other southern inspired fare. Our signature drink, a ginger-apple mojito, was served in mason jars. Dinner and dancing took place in a tent draped with white fabric and lined with chandeliers. For dinner, the rustic wood tables were adorned with burlap runners, candles, and organic arrangements of white and plum colored flowers. There were flare bartenders tossing bottles and juggling at the bar and a cigar roller to entertain those guests not on the dance floor. We even had late night fare with mini corn dogs, chicken biscuits, and root beer float shooters. It was a pretty incredible night!
Tess’s Dress Search
My parents, sister, and I went to Kleinfeld’s in NYC and were really just planning for me to try on a few dresses to get a sense of what I liked. While waiting for our appointment, I was flipping through a magazine and the first page I opened up to featured the ‘Sunday Rose’ gown by Monique Lhuillier. That was the one! We bought it the same day.
How Tess Felt in Her Wedding Dress
Beautiful, Timeless, Distinctive
Why Tess Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress
It would be a shame for a dress this beautiful to only be worn once! This dress is so fabulous and I know it will make someone else’s day just as special as mine was.

Choose their own wedding theme

08/12/2013 by admin

A couple weekends ago, Enrique and I invited our friends over to his house for a barbeque. With everyone relaxed and having a good time, the conversation turned to our wedding plans.

Wedding Dresses.First, “So, what’s your theme for the wedding?”

“The theme is us,” I said.

Next came the follow-up, “What are your colors?”

“Red and blue, but not patriotic. They’re our favorite colors.”

“Do you know what the guys and girls are wearing for the wedding?”

I explained that the men are wearing tuxedos, but for the women, we would give each attendant our color choice and have her pick out a dress she felt best wearing. E and I will need to approve her dress beforehand to make sure it fits our wedding. We’re not women, so we’re deferring to our attendants on what style of dress works for each of them.

I might as well have said we were walking out in velvet bellbottoms and rainbow sequins.

“You can’t just let everyone wear what they want.”

“We need to know because I can’t wear a short dress.”

“But I can’t wear a long dress. I’d much rather wear a pantsuit.”

“Think of the photos. You don’t want jacked-up photos for your wedding.”

Special Occasion Dresses.“How about you send us what you’re wearing and we’ll match to you.”

At 11:30 at night, after a couple of drinks, and a long day of entertaining people, none of these comments were sinking in.

Then, my dear friend Lesa replied, “Look, this is not a democracy, it’s a dictatorship. When you ask someone to be your bridesmaid, you know when you say ‘yes,’ you’re agreeing to do whatever the bride asks.”

Lesa may be on to something. Going the democratic route may spell more trouble, and autocratic rule is quite efficient. But, I’m a natural collaborator, not a dictator; it’s hard for me to just demand a person do something voluntarily. Maybe it’s somewhere in the middle, like a volun-told system of governance.

Nonetheless, I’m debating how to go about this question of finding the right dress. Should I bring everyone to a bridal shop and we compromise on a certain style? Or, should I just tell them where to go and how much (which I’ll likely do for the guys)? Whatever happens, you’ll read about it in the future.

Crazy wedding dress

Wedding Dresses.“Let’s try that one first,” I said, pointing to the craziest wedding gown the saleswoman had selected for me. It was tight through the hips, with geometric ribbon designs that started on the bodice and trailed down through the choppy tulle skirt. It was an avant-garde kind of wedding dress you might wear if your reception was at Sidebar in Downtown Baltimore or the Renaissance Festival – a little punk, a little medieval. It wasn’t remotely my style, but I wanted the first dress I tried on to be memorable and this certainly fit the bill.

Special Occasion Dresses.As I inspected myself in the mirror, it became clear that any dress I could have chosen would be hard to forget. At first I felt out of place and awkward, like an impostor who was posing as a bride-to-be. It was one of those, “How did I get here?” moments. But as I ran my hands over the fitted bodice, and tested the poof of the skirt, I began to see myself as a bride for the first time.

The wedding was suddenly no longer an abstract idea — something I knew was coming, but that felt distant and foreign. “This is really happening,” I thought. “This is real life.”

My bridesmaids awed when I finally emerged from the dressing room, as all good friends should. They did their best to stifle their smirks at my off-beat choice. “You really like this one?” they smiled.

Lost in my reflection, I wasn’t sure if this dress was for me. What was clear was that I was a bride, getting ready to marry someone who was the perfect fit.

Handbags not only look great and enhance any outfit, but they are very practical. In the handbag comes in all what a woman during the day or in the evening needed. The bride bag to the wedding is a little different from the traditional handbags. They are elected and simply fit in color and form to the wedding dress. You are also getting a bit smaller, but this does not detract from its beauty. If that’s “tone-on-tone” is too boring for the bride, there are also pockets in wonderfully gaudy bright colors.

The last century wedding dress

Oh how wonderful – I’ve discovered new trends in bridal fashion. And I must admit, I’m excited. What has already arrived in other fashion lines, the bridal fashion designers have also brought in their collections. Since weddings are nowadays more as an event, the wedding dresses are becoming more unusual, not crazy, but they have a lot more whistle and extravagance. I like this development very much.

Wedding Dresses.I begin with a nostalgic chic style of the ’20s. What we know of divas from the roaring ’20s, is now once again this year be seen in the bridal fashion – style, elegance and emancipation. We remember the time and photographs of the time when women were smoking and drinking photographed with “Smokey Eyes”. The wedding dresses are narrow, knee-length and are enhanced with beads or feather boas. Who gets married in this style, you should definitely be at the wedding ceremony, the sounds play from this period: the Charleston.
We make a leap and come to the 50s. At that time there was evening glamor and the latest fashions for example, were presented with champagne in the fashion showroom of a selected clientele. The models of that time were of course supplied tailored to the customers. Grace Kelly and Marilyn Monroe were the figureheads that time. And the style of the time we find today in the bridal wear again. Much cleavage, long skirts, petticoats.
Special Occasion Dresses.In the ’60s arrived, it is garishly colorful, flashy, trendy and crazy. This bridal fashion style is more suitable for the bride who really dares to contact and colorful with plenty of leg room in front of the altar. For a wedding that is celebrated under a motto, but this style is wonderfully suited. The 60 – Twist and rock and roll and plenty of hairspray on the teased hairstyle goes before the wedding couple in the pink Cadillac. Splendid idea!
Let us go quickly to the 70s, showing much transparency in the bridal wear but are still elegant. The 70s were the hippie years, as can be seen in the wedding dresses, but in the neat and refined version à la Romy Schneider. All in all, I can say I’m a fan of this new trend in bridal fashion. Since marriage is fun again!
