4th of July Weddings

Hello my lovelies!! And a huge Happy 4th of July Weekend to you all! I hope you had an awesome Holiday! For anyone not in The USA that might be reading this, The 4th of July is the day that my country celebrates the signing of our “Declaration of Independence” and essentially became the USA. It’s my favorite non-religious holiday for a lot of reasons- (Red!) And I promise not to bore y’all to death with all that lol. So in honor of my Homeland, I decided to do a post dedicated to the best Holiday of the summer! That way you all can see just how versatile the good ‘ole red, white & blue can be! Hopefully this will help a Bride, Maid or Mum out & get those creative juices flowing! Enjoy the Dapper y’all!

20 Gorgeous Wedding Gowns in Shades of Purple

Hello there my sweets! I hope you are all doing great! I also hope this post helps your day even more with the perfectly pretty purple gowns I have to share with y’all! (Say that 5 times real fast lol) This is the 4th installment of my color wedding gown series. It all started with my post
“10 Gorgeous Wedding Gowns Under $500” and while researching those gowns I realized what an abundance of color wedding gowns are really available out there. And surprisingly most are pretty and affordable. So today I am concentrating on the gorgeous color purple. Laurie Pressman, the Vice-President of the Pantone Color Institute had this to say about Purple, ” The purple family – the most enigmatic of all shades – is a combination of the heat & excitement of red and the cool tranquility of blue. People who favor purple, tend toward being highly creative and relish the idea of not conforming.” I totally agree! If you’re considering wearing a purple wedding gown, then you are definitely not the typical bride. But in the most awesome way 🙂 Let’s get started:

Dapper Inspiration ~ Tropical Weddings

    Hello Lovelies! Happy November! Hope you all had an awesome Halloween. Besides the rain, we had a perfect day for tricks & treats! At least it wasn’t snow! Right? lol. So now it is unofficially ‘Holiday Season’ in my neck of the woods. But being the perpetual summer baby that I am, I cannot, nor will I acknowledge anything that relates to that certain opposite season of Summer…..just yet. So to appease my longing for anything Summer-like, I am inspired to share today some inspiration for tropical/destination/beach weddings. So grab a Mai Tai & join me, won’t you? 😆🌴🌺
