Dress Envy


I couldn’t help but smile at the story of how this beautiful Alabama bride found her dream wedding gown! She was on an 8-hour flight shortly after she got engaged, so naturally, she armed herself with a stack of bridal magazines. Flipping through them, she came across this gorgeous Amsale, circled it 15 times with a sharpie, and ran to the front of the plane to show her mother. Once they landed, she called the number on the Amsale ad and ordered the dress right then and there, without ever trying it on, and once it arrived, it didn’t need a single alteration! Some dresses are just meant to be. :)

The bride completed her preppy lakeside wedding with Lilly Pulitzer bridesmaid dresses and groomsmen bowties, soft green and white flowers, and a monogrammed cake. Southern style at its best! You can find lots more pictures by Spindle Photography onĀ Style Me Pretty.

Love, Lisa
