Dress Envy


After yesterday’s sweet City Hall wedding, I can’t get tea-length wedding dresses out of my head. One of my all-time favorites is a Justin Alexander dress that was worn by a Style Me Pretty bride. Her groom proposed with some sparkly gold Louboutins instead of an engagement ring, so naturally, a tea-length gown that showed off her “engagement shoes” was the perfect choice!

I love all the gorgeous floral work on the bodice, and how the cocoa-colored sash picks up the ivory in the dress. It’s such a great combination of modern and vintage, and I think this bride pulled it off perfectly. And because I know y’all want a better picture of the shoes… ;)

    Hi Lisa! I just stumbled upon this post while referencing back to my SMP feature. Thank you so much for the kind words about my dress and shoes – to be honest, I would wear them every day, if I could! Good luck with your blog :)
