Ralph & Russo Couture S/S 2017 – Paris Fashion Week

Hello sweets! I am really excited to share these *major swoon* worthy dresses with y’all today! This is the collection that just debuted on the runways of Pairs Fashion Week Spring 2016. Ralph & Russo are one of the premier clothing brands in the world, but this season they really outdid themselves. So. Many. Lovelies! I think my fav is the Serenity blue strapless gown with big circle flowers on the skirt! Which one(s) are yours?

Grey & Lilac Grey Wedding Gowns ~ The Hot Alternative To Blush

Hello lovelies! How is your day this fine freeezzzing winter day? It’s just a bit (meaning a whole lot) cold up here in good old Michigan. Which even though I hate the cold, is really how it is supposed to be up here in January. So I am happy the weather is more “normal” than when we were having Tornados in December! (Btw, I’m a weather nut so weather talk actually intrests me lol)
One good thing about Winter to me is all the Awesomely Gorgeous Winter Weddings & Styled Shoots! We get to see what the many creative minds came up with for all the new Fall/Winter gowns, so exciting! And Soooo many pretties 💖😊💖
I was on Pinterest & Etsy.com *Swooning* over all the pretty gowns & decor and such, when I noticed A LOT of new grey/greyish purple wedding gowns on my fav designers sites. Even some old favs are available in grey now. Grey isn’t anything new of course, been around as long as all the other colors lol. But whoa what an influx that seems to be going on this Winter! And of course I’m in Love ♥♥
What seems to be happening, to me anyway, is Blush gowns have become so much part of the “norm” for wedding gowns in the last few years that now Grey is becoming the new “it” alternative color of choice. An alternative to the alternative if you will. Especially for brides who want a bit of color but not be totally “untraditional”. What do you all think? Do you see this trend evolving & are you loving it or not so much? I think it is going to be sticking around for quite a few seasons. Especially with Pantone’s Lilac Grey helping it along! Here are some pretties to help you decide: Enjoy!
(and p.s. – these gowns are from all levels of price ranges)

I just had to include this last gown from Claire Pettibone. “Alchemy” is so gorgeous beyond words to me. But being that is costs $5000 I was a bit reluctant. I’m all about helping brides find affordable gowns but this one time I had to make an exception! This dress is Totally TDF! 😁

Well how about those goddess gowns? I am Seriously speechless! So beautiful. Hopefully you all found a gorgeous gown to call all your own or some dapper inspiration for your own unique creation 😁 I think a Gold Wedding Gown is a great way to stay traditional but with a slight twist. What do you think? Is a gold dress too much or a just right mix of traditional meets modern? I’d love to hear your opinion! Have a blessed day & enjoy the rest of your weekend. Just remember, add a lil Dapper to your everyday. See y’all next time 💖💖;)

Hello my lovelies! How are you all doing? Things are going well here. A new school year has begun & Fall is right around the bend. I’ve been really excited to see all the cool new stuff the designers showed us at New York Fashion Week Spring 2016 edition. And Pantone just coming out with their list of Spring Colors for 2016 as well! Click here to see my post of all the colors on tagweddings sister blog, tagforever.
So much good stuff!!
So I thought this would be the perfect time to try and help out anyone who is looking for that perfect gown to wear on their Big Day (or anyone like me who just Loooves looking at all the pretties!). With all the big name designers and their gorgeous works of art floating around it’s super easy to get lost in all that pretty and forget, “Oooppsss, that’s right, I don’t have a trillion dollar wedding budget” *Sigh*. Oh but it sure is fun to look & dream isn’t it?
That is my inspiration for this post. A list of 10 Gorgeous Wedding Gowns under $500 (one that’s even under $100!) that are just as dreamy as any $5000+ gown. Get ready to *Swoon & Sigh* with dress delight instead of regret! I hope this helps 😁

*New Feature* ~ Etsy Finds of the Week

🌻🌻 Hello my lovelies! I bring to you today a new feature for my blog – “Etsy Finds of the Week”. I am forever finding myself looking on Etsy.com. A lot of the time because I’m on Pinterest, pinning away, and I will click on a pin to find the source and so many many times I end up on Etsy.com. I’m sorta OCD about my pins saying the correct person or place they came from, for example, making sure the right designer of a wedding gown gets credit ect… Which in turn leads me to all sorts of little gems I wasn’t expecting to find! 😁
So I thought, If I’m already spending the time and effort into this, I might as well share them with all of you as well. So here is my first list of Etsy.com finds of the week!

This week I decided to showcase Pink, Blush & Floral Wedding Gowns. The popularity of the “not quite white” wedding dress is very evident on Etsy. Lots of Vintage & New options for anyone who dares to go pink. ~Just a word to the wise, be careful you don’t end up looking like your headed to Prom instead of your Wedding. It can be a pretty thin line (unless that’s what you want then of course totally Rock it! ❤) Hope you enjoy!
