Buying Guide: Napa Valley Wedding

We couldn't let today's lovely Napa affair off the hook without showcasing some of the pretty bits and bobbles that made this alfresco wedding truly dazzle. We've scoured the web for everything from fashion to decor that has that signature California cool style woven so beautifully throughout this gem. Think of it as an all access pass to creating your own wine country stunner.


1. Could that bride and her stunning Vera Wang gown look any more gorgeous?  The silhouette is beyond stunning. Just be-YOND. For something similar yet equally as breathtaking, try this Watters dress on for size. It's perfect in all the right places...

2. We literally stopped in our tracks when we laid eyes on the hanging pendant lights during this couple's reception. That display of gorgeousness is what we wedding bloggers live for. Want to try to recreate the look? These edison pendants would totally do the trick!

3. The warm feeling of this couple's gorgeous al fresco affair can be credited to many things, but having luxe-feeling lanterns scattered about the premises definitely added to the warm wine country glow. We think these Antique Zinc Taj Lanterns from Jamali Gardens could be great stand-ins for that lovely lantern look.

4. We have a soft spot in our hearts for accessories, so it shouldn't be a surprise that we couldn't stop swooning over the Bride's to die for clutch. We found a clutch equally as fabulous for you to snatch up if you are looking for something similar.

5. The tablescape at this wedding was just out of this world. That is a fact. We were obsessed with the serpentine vases adorning the tables and you can bet you bottom dollar a few of us at SMP HQ will be ordering these vases for our homes in the oh so near future!

6. Getting ready images are some of our favorites and when the brides and their maids all get beautified in style, it makes our hearts leap. Put this silk robe from BHLDN on your shopping list if you are looking for something similar to what these lovely ladies wore.

7. Let's talk about another fabulous element of their stunning tablescape - the wooden flower boxes. LOVE. You can find something equally as adorable at Save-On-Crafts - perfect for so many types of soirees!

8. Sparkly shoes provide direct access to our hearts. So you KNOW we had to add a pair to this buying guide, and we've been crushing on these Kate Spade Gold Charm Heels for quite some time now.

9. An affair as elegant and perfect as this one needs an equally stunning invitation. The Deveril Invite by Bella Figura is the perfect combination of classic and fab.u.lous for a such a fête!
