Dress Envy


I mentioned a few weeks ago that I love the book The Great Gatsby, and as wedding inspiration, I can think of few books that would serve as a more wonderful theme. The Gatsby-inspired wedding recently posted on Once Wed is one of the best interpretations I think I’ve ever seen, and every picture is brimming with elegance and romance. One of my favorite parts? Of course, the bride’s exquisite dress!

The gown is by Pallas Couture, and that beaded bodice is just too gorgeous for words. I love how the bride paired her relatively modern gown with retro finger waves and a chic red lip to complement the theme and venue perfectly.  The pictures were taken by Jonas Peterson, and you can see tons more stunning images from the wedding on his blog!

    I am OBSESSED with beaded bodice gowns! This one is gorgeous! I wanted to search for as many beaded gowns as possibly to do research on and the Vera Wang on Weddings App was so helpful!

    I was convinced this gorgeous wedding was actually a shoot–it’s just too divine!
