This past week, I was challenged by Lover.ly to style a wedding dress in a romantic, international location. I was excited to accept, especially since this challenge is right up my alley!
In May 2013, my husband and I started our lives together and had our dream wedding (see our wedding here)! Through the entire process, I loved being our very own wedding planner (along with receiving tons of help from my mom!)! =) At the time, I used mostly bridal magazines & Pinterest for my inspiration and planning. I wish I would have known about Lover.ly! It’s a beautiful site, a wedding planning binder in the cloud, and even shows prices of items that you like! The pricing feature alone makes planning your wedding on a budget so much easier!
The destination I chose for the wedding inspiration challenge is Bora Bora! Who doesn’t love gorgeous beaches, beautiful weather, and land speckled with palm trees?
Take a look at my styled destination wedding!
Being a lover of elegant weddings, I wanted to keep elegance in my inspiration board, yet tone it down enough to be practical in a beach setting. The Penelope Gown from BHLDN was the perfect choice for this gorgeous event! Take one look at it and you’ll fall in love. It’s simply stunning. From it’s airy & flowing elegance, a perfectly fit lace bodice, to nearly invisible straps, this chic dress is made for many different wedding styles! I’ve never visited Bora Bora, but I can imagine the climate isn’t chilly. 😉 The Penelope Gown looks light enough to keep you comfortable and cool, yet radiates your elegance every step of the way!

As a firm believer of elegance (by now, I’m sure you’ve realized that I am! =)), your accessories should follow suit. For a wedding in Bora Bora, you wouldn’t want to overdo your accessories. A clean, classic look will compliment your dress perfectly! What about rose gold heels? These Aerin ‘Cocobay’ wedding heels are just divine! And take a look at these beautifully classic MeriaT white topaz and diamond drop earrings to match! Finish with a few swipes of MAC’s Cremesheen glass lip gloss and keep it handy for touch ups it in your Diane von Durstenbery ‘Flirty’ clutch! Way to go, beautiful bride, you are now styled for your wedding day in Bora Bora!!
But wait! Don’t forget about inviting your guests!! =) This gorgeous Glitter Dot Love wedding invite will not fail to peak your guests’ interest! Surely an elegant wedding needs an elegant invite. And tell me, what’s better than glitter to spread the word of a fabulous wedding?!
Well, there you have it! I hope you’ve enjoyed my Bora Bora destination wedding style!
Happy Wedding Planning (or Dreaming)! =)
