Disney Wedding planning is underway and with all of the uncertainty currently happening in the world one of the parts of wedding planning I was most looking forward to was finding my dream dress! I am beyond excited to share that Demetrios Bridal reached out to me to help me find my dream gown and let me tell you they didn’t disappoint! Prior to my appointment Demetrios Bridal let me know they were doing a Trunk Show at one of their stockists, Mon Amie Bridal in Costa Mesa, CA so I decided now was the time to try on some gorgeous dresses and find the ‘ONE‘!
Prior to my appointment I sent over some of my favorite styles from the Demetrios Bridal website over to the team to assure they had those top picks of mine at Mon Amie Bridal. Since I am having a Disney Wedding at Walt Disney World I knew I wanted a princess style dress…a ball gown with tulle and some embroidery and sparkle…something that felt like Cinderella so I was beyond excited when I got to Mon Amie Bridal with my bridesmaids in tow to begin trying on some gorgeous gowns!
The team at Mon Amie Bridal was beyond sweet + helpful, they had dresses perfect for a Disney Wedding from Demetrios already pulled and they all were flawless so it was quite a tough decision. Here’s a look at some of my favorites I tried on that made me feel like an angel!
The dresses were all so beautiful and it was a surreal moment to actually step into some of these gorgeous gowns. I definitely shed some tears + got pretty emotional. My maid of honor facetimed with my dad in NY so he could give his opinion and it was fun to get a guy’s perspective haha But he cried and we experienced all sorts of emotions thinking about me walking down the aisle.
What I love about Demetrios Bridal is that their gowns feel so unique, special + feminine which is exactly what I was looking for…something dreamy, magical + one of a kind. Demetrios can even customize the dress to my liking which I am so excited about because I am going to add some pretty sleeve detailing to the style I chose (which you will have to see when I walk down the aisle).
The entire Demetrios Bridal collection is impeccable…whether you are looking for a ball gown or an A-line or a mermaid style etc. They create gorgeous dresses for every type of bride which is what made me feel so at ease when picking and choosing different styles.
It was so fun to also add a veil and bouquet when trying on the gowns…it really helped me envision what I would look like on my big day. I am still deciding on my veil but I did pick my dress that day after trying on a variety of styles…it was a tough decision but I went with a gorgeous ball gown which I can’t wait to share with you all!
A big thank you to Demetrios Bridal for helping me find my dream dress and Mon Amie Bridal Salon for the amazing experience for my dress try on! All photography shot by Vanessa Hicks Photography.
ICYMI I am heading to Walt Disney World tomorrow to kick off the fall season + experience all of the fun Halloween decor + treats at the parks! Naturally that means I have been prepping for my trip by stocking up on some of my Halloween favorites with a twist of Disney Style. I am loving all of the great picks from ShopDisney + the Disney parks whether it’s ears, apparel, games, decor + more…I love Disney and I love Disney during Halloween so I figured I’d round up some of my favorite picks with you all to embrace the spooky season.
Since we are in full swing for back to school season + I have been binge watching Gossip Girl I figured I would share a little Blair Waldorf outfit inspo (any Gossip Girl fans here?!) One of my favorite preppy looks i love to wear is styling houndstooth.
I am mixing and matching a two piece houndstooth set I got from SHEIN here – I used the top for this look to style with a simple black skater skirt. I love buying two piece sets because you get 3 different outfits out of it – one for the two piece matching look, one of the top styled with different bottoms and one with the bottoms matched with a different top.
I layered a chic cardigan over this houndstooth top which instantly gave me school girl Gossip Girl vibes…must have for anyone that loves to add some preppy style to their wardrobe. I also paired the houndstooth print with a simple black skater skirt to avoid mixing patterns – this skirt is from Amazon + one of my go to’s.
I always like to keep a positive outlook + bright perspective even when things are tough. While there is a lot of social unrest, COVID is making a second wave and things are all up in the air right now, one thing that keeps me happy and positive is dressing good which makes me feel good and almost always that includes a cute dress, a great pair of shoes + a little POP of color in the form of a fun accessory. That’s exactly why I love this look, it’s my instant ray of sunshine because when you look good you feel good (even if it is just to head to the grocery store or the post office hehe :p)
I am loving this white eyelet dress from Lovers + Friends via REVOLVE. The back ties up and the puff sleeves are a perfect summer accent. This dress is great for brunch with friends, date night + more so it is instantly becoming a summer fashion statement. I’m a firm believer every gal needs a little white dress.
Ya’ll I am so excited to be heading to Hawaii this weekend! We are heading to Disney Aulani for my birthday and our anniversary so I am in a full on Palm Print state of mind + in the archives I found this outfit I shot over the summer at this palm print wall in Venice!
The color green is growing on me – especially when I am in a tropical state of mind with Hawaii on the horizon! This dress is so chic to wear on vacation or honestly anytime! I paired it with palm print heels + a palm print clutch to really show my tropical side.
You can never go wrong with a little palm print and a clutch is a great way to incorporate it into your look without feeling intimidated by the busy print!
How fun are these heels? I honestly can’t remember when or where I got these fun heels but I am packing them for Hawaii for a nice dinner date night or night of dancing on the beach! I’ve linked to some similar styles below that are just as gorgeous and affordable.
