friday's fancies #32.

this weekend i have FOUR different dress appointments, and i'll be helping my bridesmaids pick out their dresses AND we're taking our engagement photos on sunday. that's what i call wedding-paloooza. and i.cannot.wait.

in honor of our destination wedding blog crawl and everything wedding that is going on this weekend i have dreamt up my idea of the perfect wedding guest outfit:: 
dress $298, shoes $89, necklace $40, bangles $30, clutch $158

what are your plans for the weekend? 
do you have any wedding dress shopping tips? what about for the bridesmaids?

  25. We are hunkering down in prep for the hurricane! I love your dress choice. I love that color grey for fall!

    I'm not married, so I haven't had wedding dress shopping for myself, but my sister just got married so we have some experience. I would suggest not bringing too many people with you and try on a million different styles, not just what you think will look good on you, sometimes you will be pleasantly surprised by what makes your body look the best!

  50. That dress is utterly gorgeous. It would be a lovely bridesmaid dress.

    As for wedding dress, definitely go for what you want and don't let the sales lady talk you into it.

    And for bridesmaids, I guess it depends if you want them to match or just want a specific colour or certain style :)

  51. WOW, that dress is awesome and those shoes? Gorge. Love a rich purple hue. Happy Monday!
