Looks gorgeous! I think your hair goes with that dress perfectly! And the blue accents are beautiful! Have you thought about blue shoes? If not, I think I like the 2nd shoe option better with everything else in your look (unless you needed the height).

Dress before getting it taken in.

My headband

My shoes!

I am thinking something like this for makeup

And this the hair I have been in love with and growing out my hair for (even though I can not wait to cut my hair)

And just a simple bracelet for my wrist and still working on finding earrings

I didn’t start with an inspiration – I just knew I was going be wearing boots and that I liked lace. Our wedding will be held entirely on his parents farm.

Ok this is my dress from the David link – but here is how it looks upright:

It is a weird pic – I stole it offline. Upside is that it has pockets!!!

My hair will be in a sideswept look…simliar to this:

(FYI: I am not a Taylor fan)

Jewelry is a simple set of pearls:

My shoes are actually boots. I am in-between two pairs and I am really trying hard not to order another pair of Frye’s. This is what I have come up with (this is the 4th pair I have ordered).

My favorite part is my SASH! It’s going to be bright yellow grosgrain ribbon with a applique on it.

I think that’s it. That was fun!

@lolot:  Beautiful, I love the pops of color!  And I really like the way you’re going to alter the neckline of your dress, it’s going to look great!

@MsPanda:  That headband is going to look AMAZING with your hair!!  Love how casual yet elegant your whole look is!

@suburbian:  Pretty and chic!!  Love the yellow ribbon base for your sash!  And yay pockets on your dress XD

Oki doki here is mine…

Dress plus hair (going to leave my hair the way it always is although probably different bangs, just have some product in it):

Shoes (decided against heels so my reception shoes will be for the ceremony too!):

Sash, which will be against an ivory satin ribbon:

Headpiece:

And my makeup inspiration…

Don’t have pictures of my jewelry, but I’ll have a simple pearl necklace and a bracelette with blue, pearl-like stones.

@lolot:  Thank you I actually found it on Ebay for like $20 there was no way I could not get it! and are you planning on wearing earrings?

@suburbian:  That is my hair insperation for my reception look! I love your whole look though! The pop of yellow is going to be amazing and pearls are so classic!

@elysion:  Thank you to be honest the headband is my favorite part of my whole look (after my dress of course)! And I am so glad you said that though because that is just the look I have been going for! and I still love your dress it is so perfect on you! 

@cajungirl81:  I love how classic your look is! Your look is something that will age very well!

@lolot:  I understand what you are saying I am not doing a necklace because I think it would be too much

The dress (unbustled, no crinoline – I will have an A-line red crinoline underneath)

 

The headdress I will wear instead of a veil

 

The gloves

 

The earrings

The ankle bells

 

 

The necklace

 

 

The shoes (I am adding spikes and studs to them.)

 

The hair, pretty much.

 

 

The makeup inspiration (except… a red lip, and I’m DIYing so it’ll probably be less awesome than this.)

 

 

The parasol I will be carrying instead of a bouquet

@lolot:  It’s funny how everyone who sees that pic assumes I’m reacting to the dress! In actuality, I’m trying not to burst out laughing. My sister & bestie were behind me cracking up at the fact that my very straight-laced teacher mother was cursing under her breath at the stylist from the bridal salon (this was pre our demanding a new stylist)

Oops I didn’t write anything 🙂 I’m doing a vintage rustic theme! Lace dress. Cute sash with chiffon flowers and vintages beads and pearls and crystal. Pearl earring and bracelet. Possibly a chapel length veil with alencon lace border? Can’t decide!!!
