 Depending on your details you can substitute traditional wedding dresses with patterned Lilly dresses. I will caution you. Lilly is not a cheap brand. But you get what you pay for, and your bridesmaids… providing they like to pop their collar as much as you do…. will thank you for opting for a dress they WILL actually wear again. If you’re feeling extra sweet offer to pay for your bridesmaid dresses as a thank you for agreeing to make you their priority for the next 8 – 10 months. 🙂

AND… Lilly has a great part of their online shop called “The Little White Dress” which might be a perfect bridal outfit change for a more casual wedding, a rehearsal dinner or an out fit to leave your giant party in. People still do that right? A fun new take on the “honeymoon suit.” Or keep with your own theme and don your own pink and green ensemble fit for traveling to someplace exotic, warm and honey-mooney.

You can always opt for something a little bit more conservative and go with solid colored bridesmaid dresses from David’s Bridal in shades of pink or green with alternating colored flowers. Lime green dresses with bright pink flowers are beautiful! And a pale pink dress with a bouquets of green and white works too! Plus it’s a little less expensive for your ladies in waiting. You can always incorporate the patterned look with “Little Lilly” for your flower girls. They have adorable children’s dresses that are perfect for a preppy wedding.

Invitations can go one of two ways too. Pick a solid color and embellish with the other color, or use both in a more complex patterned invite.

I’m a big fan of the out of town bachelorette weekend. I’m a bigger fan of brides saying thanks to their bridesmaids as much as possible. Do you really have any idea how much money we are spending on you?? A lot. 

To say thank you, fill a monogrammed (obviously) bag from The Palm Gifts with adorable preppy treats like, flip flops from J.Crew or these adorable pink and green checked ones from The Palm Gifts, Notecards from Lilly Pulitzer, and maybe even a silver monogrammed ring or preppy bachelorette coozies from Preppy Monogrammed Gifts. Also just a quick note about J.Crew… if you still have your student discount lying around you can get 15% off in-store (varies) purchases. Definitely worth using.

Alright ladies listen up. 

Grooms can go one of three ways right?

1. Groomzilla: They rival the bride for total control on every friggin’ detail from start to finish

2. Helpful but totally bored: They’ll help you but truthfully don’t really care what shade of pink ribbon you tie on the program

3. Non-existent: Bad news Bears.

This one’s for the boys. So spin them, take off the blind fold and point them toward the computer for some lessons in Weddings 101.

It won’t hurt I promise. There’s much to learn little bird. 

First up…

The Man Registry

Seriously. Are you over the name yet? How great is this?  This site is so great. It’s a complete guide to all things groom. You can sign up and create your own MAN-REGISTRY. (Yes capital letters are necessary) and you can send the registry to guests so that they can look at your MAN-REGISTRY. There’s a Groom 101 area where your groom and his guys can plan and execute successful bachelor parties- with o without strippers- there is a pretty great list of Extreme Bachelor Party Ideas including sky diving, wedding speech survival tactics, and a whole section on how to prank the groom… ladies you might want to send that one out via e-mail to the groomsmen asap. 

AND there’s a blog. I love the blog. I follow these guys on Twitter. They’re great. Lots of really fun info to check-out for everyone.

Groove Groom

GroomGroove.com is like a fortune teller’s paradise for a groom. From start to finish your groom can calculate an engagement ring, pick out his groomsmen gifts,  plan a stellar Rehearsal Dinner, even impress his future mother-in-law. It’s been featured on major media outlets too, which is always a sign of legitimacy right? Wait…even if it’s Fox?  I digress. GroomsGroove.com has loads of articles on tons of relevant topics that will answer his questions before he starts firing them at you.
