Debut of Anthropologie’s BHLDN

Categories Dresses + Fashion

Yippee! The day has come.  If you’re a fan of Anthropologie, then you’ll be super excited to know that their new wedding collection BHLDN launched on Valentines Day! Hmmm, how best to describe their online bridal collection of heirloom-inspired gowns, party dresses, accessories, footwear, jewelry and more … fanciful, whimsical, unique.

Here are four inspired wedding gowns from their four kinds of brides: *sigh*

Nostalgic Romantic

Neo Sophisticate

La Bohemienne

Lady with a twist

I think I have a little of all four styles in me. How about you?


Short Wedding Gowns

Categories Dresses + Fashion

Absolutely love the idea of a short wedding dress!

Would I wear one myself? Hmmm. Good question. Definitely non-traditional. I tend to pigeonhole these dresses as: cocktail, wedding reception, destination, courthouse, morning and casual summer weddings… but perhaps that’s a bit tunnel-visioned. Gorgeous, sassy and sophisticated, the following dresses are tempting me into a changed perspective. Each hemline, neckline, and waistline paints a unique wedding style that is undeniably lovely, compelling and perfect for any-time wedding!  And, every bit as glamorous as its long wedding dress counterpart.

Would you wear a short wedding dress?

Pocket Dresses & Invitations

Categories Dresses + Fashion + Wedding Stationery

Practical. Pockets.

They hold important, practical stuff…  like lip gloss and breath mints.  And, wedding invitation stuff… like enclosure cards, RSVP cards, maps and more. All that fold-over goodness. What’s not to love about pockets?

Exploring this practical duo even more… what do you think of this pairing for a sweet garden wedding?
