This weekend I had the pleasure of being a part of WedPrep, a 2-day wedding workshop masterminded by the talented party pros Paige and Kelly of Bash, Please. The curriculum was packed with all kinds of helpful tips from the best in the biz and I was honored to be included in that pool. As the fashion professor, I shared my top tips for how to nail your wedding looks and all the shortcuts to headache-free bridal style. One of the things I talked about was the importance of dressing like the star of every one of your wedding related events as a bride. After all, you’re the center of attention at every party so these outfits should never be an afterthought. Even though a bride has a lot on her plate during the year leading up to her wedding, her party looks are just as important as the main event. So if you’re in the process of planning a wedding (or if you’re simply on the lookout for some cute party or poolside looks), here’s some inspiration for you to get to shopping! I love it when a bride follows a cohesive style story for her events, such as incorporating white into every look she wears. It’s all about enjoying every moment of your time as a bride, so I say milk it for all its worth!

Nothing wrong with that, been there myself, but it’s a whole ٜnother thing when you can paint for the sake of painting.I hope you smiled sweetly and thanked him, lol. I just love it when I have a good sale and I wave the check in front of my husband and watch his eyes go big…heh heh heh…And by the way, the re-do is an improvement. So maybe an honest critique isn’t a bad thing. xo
