(but first, let me take a selfie)
Here it is, Part 2 of my Wedding Wear series (if you missed it, see the first post here).
Amy and Phil's wedding was entirely different than the first of the series. Amy describes the wedding theme as "glitz & glam, drawing inspiration from the 20's / Great Gatsby". When Amy first told me that she was going for a "Gatsby" theme. I was so excited!
For one, I worked with Amy to create/design several features for her big day: wedding programs, various graphic quotes to be framed throughout the venue, escort cards (more on all this stuff in a separate post coming soon). And secondly, I was excited to "go all out" and really embrace the theme. I told Amy from the get-go that I was going to find a headpiece to wear - which to me, is a signature of 20's fashion. Who doesn't love a good theme as an excuse to have fun and dress up? As long as Amy was on board - and she was - I was going all out.
I knew exactly what I wanted for the head piece, the hard part was finding the dress. I knew I wanted something beaded, something 20's inspired with a lot of bling. I stumbled upon this dress at Nordstrom (though not in my size), and to my disappointment it was completely sold out! Luckily, I was able to find it on Amazon (amazing, right?). I wanted to pair the dress with long black pearls, but had zero luck finding what I was looking for. So I borrowed some long, white pearls from my mom and paired them with my long faux pair. (In the end, I think the white pearls worked better than black would have.) I finished the look with black studded pumps and of course, red lips.
The wedding was a blast, I can't wait to share more! Stay tuned.
