Introducing The Mrs Box + a Giveaway!

The Mrs Box

Wouldn’t you agree that that stunning sparkler of yours deserves to be kept (when it’s not on your finger!) in something equally as beautiful? For the most part, the drab standard ring box that most jewelers offer is so not going to cut it, so we couldn’t be more excited to share the news of The Mrs. Box, who set out to change things in a beautiful + colorful way! Designed by our ultra stylish friend Summer of Grey Likes Weddings, The Mrs. Box offers limited edition vintage french velvet ring boxes. The Mrs. Box gives you an instant heirloom and a proper  – and pretty! – place to store and showcase your most treasured baubles. With the option of personalization with custom monograms and a rainbow of colors to choose from, every girl (whether you are a Miss, Ms. or Mrs.) is sure to find a favorite.

Styling Your Bridal Party for Fall with ASOS

Styling Your Bridal Party for Fall with ASOS

Fall is such a perfect time of year for weddings! The weather is cooling down a bit and the colors of the season make for the loveliest backdrop for your big day. To help you soon-to-be-brides style your wedding party in fall’s finest, we’ve partnered with one of our fave fashion resources, ASOS, to create an inspirational round-up of looks we’re loving this fall + give you a chance to win your wedding outfit – more on this below :)

The looks we’ve created for you are: Fall Florals, Autumn Pastels, Modern Black + White, and Berry Sweet. There’s seriously something for every type of bridal party + we think your ladies will be eternally grateful if you choose any of these ultra stylish frocks (or perhaps even the polka dot midi dress or constellation maxi dress above)! And since we can’t forget about the guys (hey, guys!), be sure to check out our top picks for your groomsmen, too!

If you’re not yet a huge ASOS fan (we love their free shipping!), here’s a bit more about ASOS and their collection….ASOS offers three amaze occasion brands:

  1. ASOS Salon – this brand drops in the summer, so it’s fun, floral and flirty
  2. ASOS White – their premium line, which has a sports luxe feel this season
  3. ASOS Black – their occasion wear line that launches just in time for holiday parties, so you better believe it’s very embellished and a little more glam

So, check out the looks we put together for your fall bridal party and we’ve love to hear: Which is your favorite look for a fall wedding?

Fall Florals for your bridesmaids

The floral trend isn’t going anywhere and we love it for fall, especially with darker prints.

Autumn Pastels for bridesmaids

Pastels were big this summer and we are still loving them for fall too, such a pretty + romantic look!

Modern Black and White bridesmaids looks

Always a fan of the black + white combo, it is the perfect palette for fall – and major love for the lace cut outs on some of those darling skirts!

Berry Sweet Bridesmaids looks

Who says bright bold colors are only for summer? We are loving these bright berry hues for fall!

Groomsmen looks for fall

Tweed, wool, denim and flannel…just a few of our fall faves for the groomsmen!

We’re SUPER excited to share that GWS + ASOS have teamed up to offer one lucky reader $500 to create their dream wedding outfit! Perfect for your wedding day, your rehearsal dinner, to wear to a fall wedding or maybe even for a holiday party this winter (it’s coming up fast!).

Magical Redwood Forest Wedding: Molly + Leland

redwoods wedding

Happy Monday, friends! We’re excited to share the dreamiest wedding to start the week; one that will surely inspire couples who love the great outdoors. Molly and Leland exchanged their vows in the middle of the redwood forest on the Summer Solstice. According to their talented photog, Katie Shuler, The towering trees left me speechless, but there was also a quiet mystery to the air that made you feel like you were living in a fairytale. We love that description, don’t you? See all of the gorgeousness, and the sweet personal touches Molly + Leland incorporated into their day, in Katie’s beautiful captures below…

Molly wore Leland’s great-great grandmother’s veil for the ceremony. Isn’t it stunning?!

And the wheat + lavender bouquets and boutonnieres were crafted days before the wedding by M + her lovely bridesmaids! Gotta love something that can be made ahead of time + still look this great, right?

Molly: I knew early on that I wanted the “first look” to be there as I walked down the aisle because there’s so much suspense and magic in that moment. Although we were surrounded by so many, I felt like we were the only two in the forest. I couldn't take my eyes off of him and I couldn't keep a smile off my face. It's so wonderful to then turn around once we said our vows and see so many people who love and care about us. It's surreal knowing you're not alone and that you'll never be alone. I have my best friend for life.

Leland: On Friday we had our rehearsal and walk through. When it was my turn to walk down the aisle I felt this rush of emotion. All the weeks of planning and preparation washed away and I was acutely aware that I was 24 hours from marrying my love. So I had a feeling I would be feeling strong emotions on the big day. Sure enough, I walked down the aisle to see my family and friends old and new. I was on the brink but still maintained my composure. The bridesmaids and groomsmen walked down the while as I took in my surroundings. And then it happened. The first note of Molly's song played and I couldn't hold back my emotion. Boys don't cry, but sometime men cry like babies. Then at the end of the aisle I saw her, a vision in white, my beautiful wife to be.

As the big day approaches make sure that you have a detailed timeline and revise it as necessary. Make sure all of the involved parties have a copy so they know how you want the day to go or flow (e.i. Coordinator, Caterer, D.J. etc.). Also, delegate-delegate-delegate! Find some key people that you know are true "work horses" and who love to help and make sure you communicate clearly with them as to their job or responsibility on the big day.

And have fun planning! Don't be afraid to be daring and do something fun and original. It's YOUR day so let your imagination run wild. Try not to get too caught up in how it "should" look like according to tradition.
