ModCloth + Green Wedding Shoes Bridesmaid Dresses

Modcloth Green Wedding Shoes dresses

It’s a big day here at GWS + that has everything to do with what we’re about to announce! We’ve partnered with one of our fave fashion sources (especially for pretty party + bridesmaids dresses!), ModCloth, to bring you lovelies some of the best bridesmaids looks for fall!

It all began when ModCloth asked us to pick a few dresses from their new collection that represent the GWS girl, and style them up with gorgeous ModCloth shoes + jewels. (A girl’s dream come true, right?!) We’re so in love with our sweet ‘maids collection and are thrilled that there are even three stunning frocks named after us here at Green Wedding Shoes! We couldn’t be more excited about this super-fun collab!

The talented Mr. Haack beautifully captured each of our bridesmaid looks during a shoot that turned out to be a seriously fun bridesmaids bash, filled with cotton candy cocktails, stunning fall florals, and a majorly (majorly) good time! And we have to say, the Lombardi House in Hollywood couldn’t have been a better backdrop for the day. A pretty barn in the middle of the city felt like the perfect setting to show off these totally adorable fall bridesmaids looks! Let us unveil the GWS for ModCloth dresses…

This lovely plum number Nicole is wearing below is the Green Wedding Shoes Dress! We absolutely adore it and think it looks great paired with shiny gold accessories like ModCloth’s Glam of Thrones necklace + Fine Dining Heels. But the best accessory of all just might be that insanely pretty bouquet by Moon Canyon Design, don’t you think? This beauty features dahlias, snow berries, hellebores, piano garden roses, clematis, orchids, pieris, parrot tulips, hosta leaves, liquid amber, and magnolia. So stunning…

Doesn’t the lounge we created with Found Vintage Rentals look amazing in the airy, white barn? We just love how the jewel-toned furniture pieces allowed us to make this cozy space for conversation!

The Blush with Destiny dress (seen below) is so adorbs + versatile, it could easily be a nontraditional wedding dress or the perfect choice for fall ‘maids with its sweet fluttery sleeves + lacy skirt.

Jesi Haack Design killed it with not one, but two, fun backdrops for our shoot! This one, featuring hand-drawn and watercolor painted blooms, created the perfect space to stage the adorable Bon Puf cotton candy cart! We LOVE the idea of cotton candy (BTW Bon Puf features organic, all natural cotton candy!) at weddings, a bridal shower or even a rehearsal dinner. So, so fun!

And it wouldn’t be a REAL party without some cocktails, right?! Jesi Haack created another fun backdrop for us (loving those yarn hangings!) and we whipped up some cotton candy cocktails by topping bubbly champagne with the colorful sugary sweet! YUM.

Rustic California Farm Wedding: Elle + Ryan

vintage model t car

We adore a good farm wedding, but as soon as we laid eyes on Elle (a nurse!) and Ryan’s (an astrophysicist!!) wedding we were even more smitten than usual. Maybe it has something to do with their spot-on personal style (srsly, wait ’til you see Elle’s gorge floral kimono!), the charming and perfectly rustic details, or the fact that their wedding venue is practically in LA’s (and our) backyard, but feels a million miles away. These two put together their beautiful day DIY-style, with some help from a few family members + friends. For anyone tying the knot in a rustic setting this fall, we’re sure you’ll be eyeing E + R’s photos for a couple amazing, last minute ideas!

A bit about the planning process from Elle, Both of us have family that live in rural areas of California and Texas. Living in Los Angeles, we missed being connected to those roots. Having a venue that spoke to where we both came from but was convenient enough to visit and plan around was really important to us. Once we found Riley’s Farm, the rest flowed from there!

Big thanks to Brad Claypool  for these stunning images and congratulations to Elle + Ryan on a beautiful day!

Elle scored her gorgeous lace dress at a local thrift store and had it tailored for a more modern fit. We seriously love hearing thrift store success stories! :) And this is one of the prettiest vintage dresses we’ve seen.

Ryan: Elle standing with her parents at the top of the stairs, having just stepped out of the car and wearing her veil: that is an image that will stay with me for a long time.

Elle: As a part of the ceremony, we had a ring warming where all our family and friends had a chance to hold our rings before they came to us. Taking that moment to look out on all the people gathered there with us was really special.

This sounds cliché, but do whatever you can to enjoy yourself! Even if that means letting go of traditions that don't mean anything to you or adding in seemingly "non-wedding" things that are really special to the two of you. And take time in the planning and (sometimes) chaos to be together and get excited about your marriage. We loved our wedding, but being married has been just as awesome and maybe more important than our wedding day was!

I think there's a lot of pressure these days to have a wedding that's really unique. Some of our favorite parts of our wedding were borrowed from or later borrowed by friends. Focus on the things you love, the things that really reflect the two of you, let go, and enjoy!

  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

Oh, and remember ASOS offers free shipping and free returns, just one of the many reasons we love shopping there!
