Wedding Bells {feat. Olivia Palermo}

I’m sure you know by now that Olivia Palermo has gotten married. She went for a rather casual, yet chic look for her nuptials (she wore Carolina Herrera). I notice that many of the fashion girls opted for understated weddings. This initially surprised me, but when you have a person that wears beautiful things daily, going all out for a wedding isn’t really on the agenda.Olivia_Palermo_Wedding-1a

I took this as an opportunity to share some pins from my Pinterest board entitle Maybe. I gave it that title because maybe I’ll get married one day. For now, here are a few wedding dresses that fit my current aesthetic.

I like drop-waist gowns for two reasons: 1) With my 5’2″, 110lb frame, I won’t get totally lost in a sea of fabric, and 2) I can achieve a slender, elegant look while maintaining a “princess moment”.

I’m also certain that unless I pull an Olivia, I’m going to wear a Mantilla or alter veil (I know, I’m such a catholic girl).
