So I used to be pretty wholly against this idea. I’m a traditionalist and for a very long time my notion that the groom should see the bride for the first time as she makes her way down the aisle was pretty set in stone. The groom in no way shape or form should see his bride before that sacred moment. But times they are a changin’… and so are my views on this. Mostly, I blame all of the amazing photographers who have documented this in the last year or so. There’s something magical in that very first look. A moment between only two people without all of the eyes of a roomful of guests. A moment that’s yours and yours alone. That moment where the bride just reaches out and touches her groom’s shoulder and he turns around…

It’s magic.
See for yourself…

Erin's Winter Wedding Inspiration Board- SMP Style Circle

My darling friend Erin is getting married in late November at a ski resort in Maryland. Her wedding colors started as green, black and white and then traded the green¬†¬† for the red in order to match her fiance’s dress blues. (He’s in the army). So now, she’s sticking with winter whites, black damask patterns and hints of red. Personally I’m pushing for red shoes. If you can’t wear them on your wedding day…

Besides… a little bit of surprise is good for the soul.

Here’s the inspiration board I created on the SMP (Style Me Pretty) Style Circle for Erin’s wintry wedding in Maryland. Click here to read more on my Style Circle blog about Erin’s wedding here.

Summer Garden Inspiration Board- SMP Style Circle

My friend Caitlin is getting married next June in the beautiful botanical gardens outside of Chicago. I mean could you ask for a better backdrop. Please. Anyway, I’ve been playing around with the Inspiration boards on the Style Me Pretty (SMP) Style Circle and this is the board I created for Caitlin. Originally she had started with navy and yellow as her base colors. Whatever she ends up going with is going to be elegant and easy, just like her. Check out what I had to say about Caitlin’s upcoming wedding and the inspiration behind her beautiful summer garden wedding here

Ok. I am seriously OBSESSED with the new Style Circle on Abby Larson’s AMAZING site Style Me Pretty. If you are living under a rock and have never had the good fortune of stumbling across this site, go now. Seriously. Right now. Her site is beautiful, and her vendors are the best of the best.

Her latest incarnation is the Style Circle tool, which allows you to build Inspiration boards from existing images on her site. PLUS, you can blog.

Go swim in the stream at Style Me Pretty and get your little feetsies wet.

I signed up today, and I cannot get enough. I want to build 9037503590 inspiration boards. And I’m not even getting married. Imagine what you ladies with a ring can do. It’s really great!
