Going to Bridal Market!


As I mentioned in my October goals, I’m headed back to Bridal Market this year! I have been looking forward to it for months and am so excited that it’s finally here. Bridal Market is essentially bridal fashion week, and while it’s primarily for buyers, I’m grateful that I have the opportunity to go on behalf of Southern Weddings. It was so crazy, exciting, inspiring, and completely surreal last year, and there are moments from that week that I know I will never forget! I was flipping through the pictures from last year earlier this week and thought it’d be fun to share my very favorite photos and moments–both to share, and for my own memories!

    Love your posts, Lisa. Hey, so I’m going to be the mother of the groom next June. Do you ever do articles on appropriate attire for mothers?

    This post is so glamorous, but all it makes me think about is my smelly shoes in your poor bag!
