Bridal Separates from Lace and Liberty

Lace & Liberty

If you’re a bride dreaming of creating her own wedding dress, but the thought of designing one from scratch is too overwhelming, we have some good news to share with you today! Lace & Liberty is a new-fashioned design house offering brides-to-be the opportunity to mix and match amongst their versatile Bridal Separates for hundreds of combinations to create a look that’s uniquely custom.

They offer various necklines and different skirt silhouettes, so brides can mix and match amongst the pieces to create a look that’s just right for her. And we love the genius behind their 2-in-1 dresses: Pair one of their skirts over a little white dress or a slim fitted long dress, giving you the perfect dreamy gown look for the ceremony, then take off the tulle skirt easily to dance the night away in a completely different outfit!

Lace & Liberty‘s studio is based in San Francisco, but they want to give brides all over the country a chance to see their pieces in person! Since we many of their brides know what style they like, but might feel uncertain about buying online, their “At Home Try On” service is a perfect choice! They’ll send a bride a sample try on box with 1 top + 1 skirt of their choice ($30 for one box, $50 for 2 boxes) to try on in the comfort of their own home with friends and family.

Lace & Liberty offers made to measure service, customization features (such as train, skirt length, width of waistband, and sometimes even color) and a fast turnaround. Each piece is made individually for each bride once they order and to each bride’s specified measurement. They also make each dress to the length specified, which is great for the tall/petite girls, and for all brides as she can save on having length adjustments.

Rustic, Romantic New York Barn Wedding: Lauren + Brenden

Romantic Barn Wedding

Lauren + Brenden tied the knot at the prettiest property, Shadow Lawn in High Falls, New York on a sweet + sunny September day. They worked with some of the East Coast’s best vendors like Lauren Fair Photography + Floresta NYC and, being a detail-obsessed duo themselves, took pride in being involved with designing the stunning, romantic setting.

We’re loving the rich color story of navy, burgundy, blush + gold and we’re pretty sure we would have loved to be guests at their cozy fall reception dinner! Let’s see more of their beautiful day below…

Lauren shares, Our dog Oliver is the love of our lives. We talked for months about how to incorporate him in our big day, but having him there for the ceremony just had disaster written all over it. Minutes before the start of the ceremony (and after 2 glasses of champagne), we made a last minute decision to let Ollie off his leash and hope for the best. The pictures of him walking down the aisle are ones that we’ll cherish forever.

The speeches given by our Maid of Honor and Co-Best Men were the most memorable moments of our wedding day. The love and laughter that filled the room when each of them spoke was a feeling that we will never forget.

Intimate Valentine’s Day Dinner for Two

Intimate Valentine's Dinner

If you caught our Valentine’s Morning breakfast in bed feature from yesterday, you can probably tell we’re gearing up for Love Day with a few different ideas this year! Today’s feature celebrates the holiday with an intimate + romantic dinner for two, filled with candlelight, mini French macarons, and gorgeous, bright flowers. But there’s more to those blooms than what meets the eye! Each one is a carefully crafted paper blossom by The Lovely Ave and we have to say, we’re pretty much in love!

Thanks so much to Leslie Dawn Events + Alice Jane Photography for sharing this sweet V-Day idea with us! The beautiful, idyllic setting they created definitely beats going out to restaurant if you ask us!
