A Perfect Wedding…

My good friend Lisa, over at Demby + Solomon, recently emailed me about this couple that she worked with, who aside from having the most gorgeous wedding you've ever seen, has also been a true source of inspiration for her. When I saw the photos and started reading their blog, I knew that you guys would love to hear all about them.

First things first, the photos of their recent wedding, taken by the amazingly talented...

Fall 2008 Runway Picks

Today is all about being a bride. A drop dead gorgeous bride. I wanted to let you guys know what my picks were from this past week's Fall runway shows. The gowns were, in a word, stunning. One part wispy and romantic, one part edgy and sophisticated...most of the looks were well designed and created for a bride that wants to be both beautiful and perhaps a bit sexy.

So first, I wanted to start with the super wearable pieces that I fell in love with, designed by some of the major...

From Inspiration to Reality…

Some of you might remember this gorgeous inspiration board that was done by one of our readers, Jennifer, for a past Inspiration Board Contest...

Well lucky for us, Jennifer sent me a picture of her real life wedding board. And, it is insanely close to her the one she designed for inspiration. Just goes to show how very helpful these boards are in pulling all of your many loves, into one cohesive look and style!

Here is Jennifer's real wedding...

I am so excited to write the third issue of our "An Inspired Affair..." series. This wedding is one of the most gorgeous weddings that I have ever seen. Seriously.

The dream team that helped us create this inspiration board, was none other than Lisa Vorce at Oh How Charming! and photographer, Elizabeth Messina. Have you ever seen anything like...

Wedding Invitations by Black Pearl Press

Being in Elisabeth Warman's insanely cool letterpress studio, Black Pearl Press, a few nights ago was perhaps the highlight of my week. Okay, my month. Maybe my year, but I don't want to embarrass her. Elisabeth joined Moria and Megan, of MFlynn Jewelry, and myself for dinner this past week. But before we left, we spent some time poking around her studio, devouring all of the gorgeous designs...

Wedding Gifts by MFlynn

A couple of nights ago, I had the pleasure of meeting two of Boston's finest...sisters Megan and Moria Flynn of MFlynn Jewelry. They were sweet enough to invite me to grab a bite near their studio and I am so glad that I was able to go! First, let's talk about the goods.

Megan and Moria work in the cutest part of Boston, in this amazing building that is literally overflowing with artists, designers and otherwise creative people.

How much do you love this wedding that was shot by Nicole Hill and featured on her blog, A Little Sussy (such a cute blog by the way)...

I love the top left photo that Nicole pointed out...the clothesline (and wheat grass patch) covered in pictures of the couple. And, how adorable is that bride?! It just seems like such a sweet, happy day. Nicole also has some great wedding...

Wedding on a Budget

I have received so many emails about yesterday's style board. And lucky for us, Erin (the bride), has been sweet enough to offer her top ten tips for creating a beautiful, but budget friendly wedding! Even better, we have a few more photos to share!

From Erin...

My complete #1 was remembering that I was going for a vibe - and that that superseded getting wrapped up in lots of little details, that quite frankly no one (including me) would remember.

But...

A Brooklyn Wedding

To me, there is nothing sweeter, than seeing the perfect wedding of a Style Me Pretty reader. Knowing that Style Me Pretty is inspiring you to not only create the wedding of your dreams, but to do so while still having fun...well, it's humbling, to say the least. So of course, when Erin sent me pictures of her recent Brooklyn, NY wedding, I literally got tears in my eyes.

Believe it or not, Erin and her fiance put together this drop dead gorgeous affair for...

Jessica Rust Contest Winner

I am FINALLY ready to announce the winner of the Jessica Rust Contest. The question was...how has the Internet, specifically blogs, changed the way that you approach your own wedding?

And the winner is (drum roll please)...Julie! I will be honest, it took me a really long time to choose a winner. Everyone's answers were so true, and so well said. And many of them had similar sentiments, each worded slightly different. To me, that means that Style Me Pretty along with the other...

Unique Catering

First of all, I am so sorry that there were not any posts for you yesterday. I was actually in New York for the morning and ended up sitting in six and a half hours of traffic on our way back to Boston. So, I couldn't get anything up for you guys! Hopefully, the weekend posts will make up for it.

You know, I very rarely talk about food on this blog. And to be honest, I don't know why. Aside from the fact that I am a huge foodie, I also really believe that good food and good drinks...

Abby Jean Invitations, Laura

Laura is a classic...with a twist. She is one part tradition, one part hip-girl-next-door. We've recently infused our Laura collection with a fresh new color palette of kelly green and pure white. What was a really sweet invitation before, is now a bit more contemporary. I love the simplicity of this look paired with such a vibrant color.

For today, though...we are having the second edition of our "...
