Gorgeous Bridesmaids, Mothers Dresses that are Actually Affordible

Hello my sweets! How are you? Happy first week of Spring! 🙂 Even though it’s snowing at my house right now lol lol. Oh well, at least it’s Techincally Spring! I am taking a bit of a break from my Pantone Colors of 2015 series. I was starting to feel like I was writing the same post over & over again. (I call it the groundhog day effect lol)  But don’t worry, I will definitely finish it 🙂 Since Spring is officially wedding season, I figured there would be lots of Brides, Maids & Mums on the hunt for wedding party attire. Myself included. And one thing I discovered on this hunt? It’s 10X’s Harder to pick out a MOB dress than picking my own wedding gown ever was! I won’t bore y’all to death with a list of reasons why. But I will say it’s been a challenge. One I plan on winning! 🙂  Therefore, I thought it would be a good time for a post with some pretty eye candy, that is actually affordible too, yay! I’m only listing dresses I’ve found recently and are as of the date of this post still available. So grab a drink, sit back And I hope you enjoy! ❤ ❤ PhotoGrid_1427228292186 These lovelies are the “Annabell” gown by Jenny Yoo.

Pantone Wedding Color Inspiration Part 2

Hello my lovelies! Happy Thursday 🙂 How are you all? I’m doing pretty well here. It’s been a cold hard winter here in good ol’ Michigan, USA. But never fear!! Spring is just around the bend (Thank Heaven!). I have been seeing signs of life poking their wee heads out from the snow! Turkeys & Squirrels & Deer running around, Canadian Geese flying North, oh I can’t wait 🙂 ♥
    So, in honor of the beauty that is Springtime in Michigan, I bring to y’all today my 2nd installment of the Pantone Wedding Colors 2015 ~ Strawberry Ice.

*A little warning~ this post has Lots of pics!!* 
I realized when I started this post that I am dedicating a Spring post to an “Icy” color lol! But don’t let the name fool you. This color is as warm and pretty as they come 🙂 And it can be paired up so many, many ways! Too many for just one post, so I “tried” to narrow it down to my favs. I’ve never considered myself a girly-girl, I don’t think I ever will, and Pink usually isn’t a color I choose very often. I found though you don’t have to be a “Barbie Girl” to fall head-over-heels for Strawberry Ice 🙂 So get your Pin It buttons warmed up! Here we go……I’ll start off with dresses/gowns.

As you can see, Strawberry Ice can be as Cool or Warm as you wish. I think that’s one main reason I fell in Love. This color, and the one I’m planning to do next, Toasted Almond, I think are the most versatile colors in Pantone’s line up this year. Here’s some more warmer inspiration….

And some Cooler….

You can even have both if you wish. One of the very few colors where you can get away with it!

And, as always, don’t forget the fellas!…

Weither you use Strawberry Ice as the dominate color, as an accent, or equal partners, it brings a lovely romantic vibe to any decor. Use it  as a splash or go full out Fairytale!
Whatever you choose, this color just screams “Weddings” 🙂 ♥

And last, but certainly not least, I thought I’d show y’all my 3 favorite Strawberry Ice pairings. As I mentioned before, this gorgeous color will go with pretty much anything. I had such a HARD time with picking JUST three to show lol! I wanted to show you them all!  🙂
Here’s Strawberry Ice & Mint ~ a sweet combo for Spring or Summer

Next up is Strawberry Ice and Red. Gorgous for Summer or Fall Weddings.

And My #1 favorite color combo?
Strawberry Ice & Chocolate Brown!

Nothing like a Chocolate Covered Strawberry! He he! But really though, just look how elegant it is! *Swoon*!
Well, I hope y’all enjoyed this post today 🙂 I apologize for soooo many pics, but hey, love makes ya do silly things, right? What do you think of Strawberry Ice? Would you use it for your wedding?
