Dress Envy: Rhiannon of Hey Gorgeous


I’m thrilled to have one of my blog best friends here today–Rhiannon of Hey Gorgeous Events! You may remember that I was lucky enough to work as her blogging assistant last year, and since then, we’ve remained good friends. Of course, I never tire of seeing the incredible weddings and shoots she styles, because each one is even more impressive than the last. Her 2010 wedding made waves in the blogosphere, and she is just as gorgeous as she as talented!

My dress is Enzoani Diana with the gray sash.

I knew my dress was the one when…This is kind of a shocker to admit but I’m not sure if my dress was truly ‘the one’ because truth be told I found about five other incredibly amazing gowns after the fact that were just as gorgeous as the Enzoani I went with (important note: stopping looking at gowns when you find yours!). But that’s the thing that’s tricky about gowns and loving beautiful things; you feel torn in a million different directions! Luckily, my dress was very much a representation of me and really did make me feel a certain way the minute I first saw it in a magazine and the minute I had the saleswoman zip the back up for the first time. My dress was such a perfect mix of two different worlds: the all over Spanish lace was romantic and timeless whereas the dramatic long train and gray embellished sash were modern and a little sassy. I did have the lace straps removed on the gown because they made my 5 foot 2 frame seem shorter than normal, and thanks to the ridiculous amount of tulle under the skirt I had an over bustle added to the back.

My favorite thing about my dress was…the lace. I am such a sucker for gorgeous ivory lace.

I accessorized my dress with…very little since my sash had so much going on. I found super chic black diamond stud drop earrings that matched perfectly with the gems on the sash. I wore a pair of gray pumps that were about $30.00, purchased years before the wedding (no red soles for this girl!). I did end up falling in love with an elbow length lace-trimmed veil that matched the lace on my gown perfectly and really made me feel like a princess. Then I painted my nails in a gray matte hue to finish it all off!

Thanks for sharing, Rhi!!
