Friday Favors + Some Gorgeous Gowns!


Happy Friday lovelies! I hope your 2013 is off to a great start and wanted to wish a big welcome to all our newly engaged readers! I know a lot of you newly engaged readers are probably most excited about the dress – and you have SO many great options right now! A few gorgeous gowns I’m loving are above – oh, and excited to see what all the stars wear on the Red Carpet this weekend for the Golden Globes (with my two fave funny ladies hosting!! Yay Tina + Amy!!!). If you plan on watching also, I’ll be live tweeting during the Red Carpet and look forward to hearing which dresses you love – and maybe don’t love so much – also! You can find me on Twitter at @GrnWeddingShoes – see you Sun afternoon or evening depending where you live! :)

  1. Most definitely the Ivy & Aster lace dress!! Too beautiful for words.

  2. Absolutely love those wedding gowns!

  3. I am totally loving the blush BHLDN dress. Beautiful!

  4. I am quite positive that BHLDN dress is by Australian designer Rachel Gilbert. Hers was also called Isadora. I almost bought it as my wedding dress when I was first engaged.

  5. The top right gown is amazing! So elegant and gorgeous.

  6. LOVE! Oh my goodness.

  7. The top two are just to die for!


  8. Love these fairy designer wedding gowns.

  9. These gowns are gorgeous. I specially liked the designs by Paolo Sebastian as they’re elegant and sexy at the same time. Thanks you for sharing!!
