If you know me at all, you know I’m just crazy about Tiffany’s! So when I found out there is a new line of wedding dresses all inspired by Audrey Hepburn as the fabulous Holly Golightly, I was beyond excited! The Bridal Collection was created by Reem Arca for Spring of 2018. The beautiful gowns come in both white and black, paying tribute to Holly’s classic black gowns from the film.
I can’t believe how long it’s been since I’ve posted on here! It’s been a crazy fast two months! We got married, went on our honeymoon, moved, & started our lives as newlyweds. It’s been so wonderful!
I thought I’d share some beautiful pictures from our wedding day. I’m so happy with how they turned out!
Thanks so much to Kyle Weaver Photography!

Over the weekend I had my first experience trying on wedding dresses. While it was in no way like Say Yes to the Dress, I was able to say yes to a dress!
A few things I learned while shopping for my dress:
1. Size of the dress doesn’t matter: The store I went to had various sizes, from 8s to I believe 24s. I tried on various dresses in almost all these sizes. Wedding dresses are based on European sizes, so the numbers are off by a bit, in some cases a lot. Also, when you put on a dress, your consultant will be clipping you into any dress you put on. I’m talking I had 8 clips at some points!
2. Try every style once: I tried lace, roched, belted, trumpet, a-line, ball gown, and whatever else I liked. It is so hard to tell if you like a dress when it’s on a hanger. Go for a specific detail of a dress and try it. You never know!
3. Think of your venue when choosing: Realize your wedding venue plays a part in picking a dress. If you have a destination wedding, you’ll want something that won’t wrinkle. If it’s outside, pick something light and airy. If it’s a black tie affair go for sophisticated & grand.
4. You might not have a crying moment: I’ll be honest, I didn’t cry when I found “the dress.” Of course I was happy, but the whole idea of a wedding makes me really nervous. I was just glad I found a dress that fit me so well & looked classic!
5. If you don’t have bling, it can be added: I picked a dress with no bling, but I found a bling belt that I added to my dress. Just because there is no bling, doesn’t mean you can’t have it!
6. Remember your timeline: It takes months to get a dress ordered in your size. Mine won’t be ready until May. Don’t forget that if you have a wedding happening in a year or less, get your dress ASAP!
I hope this helps you with your future wedding dress shopping! Comment below with any other tips you may have!
Here are a few of my favorite wedding dresses throughout fashion history. Enjoy!
I got up when this wedding took place. I believe I got up at two in the morning, and the wedding didn’t officially start until four. But I was dying to get a glimpse of Kate’s dress. When she stepped out of the car, my instant thought was, “Grace Kelly!” This dress emulates the old and new. I thought she looked beautiful, and her dress was a perfect choice!
Grace went with regal and classic on her wedding day. Lace was the majority of her dress, from her arms to her neck! Very classic, and fitting for a Princess!
Famous for marrying eight times, Liz wore many wedding dresses in her lifetime. This was her first one, which she wore when she was 18.
Jackie went for a Southern belle look. There are a lot of intricate details and ruffles. Gorgeous!
Very non-traditional, Marilyn married Joe DiMaggio in a black suit with a fur trim collar. For being married in a court house, she went classic & understated.
Granted she wed in the 80’s, she still looks breathtaking! Not too mention she had a 25ft train!
