5 Brides Describe The Moment They Found The One—And We Don’t Mean The Groom

Original Source: http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/typepad/style_me_pretty/~3/-GovOTeVkJk/

Few moments in life are as special as when a bride finally finds The One. And no, we’re not talking about the groom—although that’s pretty great, too! Surrounded by family, champagne ready to be popped, these brides prove that finding The Onethe dress—is one of the happiest moments of all time.

Alexandra Wilson

“My mom suggested going to try on dresses to get a better idea of what I loved and wanted in a dress, rather than what I didn’t want. We picked out a total of seven dresses to try on during our first shopping trip, and with each dress, I had a better idea of what I was looking for: something with lace, a little sparkle, and a beautiful back. I remember trying on the sixth dress, and the moment I saw it on, I knew it was “the one.” We were so excited, but also couldn’t believe the first day of dress shopping we found it!”

Kerri Polanski

“The dress was not at all what I had in mind for my wedding day. I had been letting stylists, my mom, and my sister pick everything out for me, but I went for one last look myself. This one caught my eye because of the red grosgrain ribbon detail on the inside of the dress. Since I was getting married February 13th, I thought it was such a special piece of Valentine’s Day, and our love story, that no one would see but us.”

Elizabeth Black DuCharme

“I went dress shopping with my family at a boutique near Baltimore, Maryland, where my husband and I met and still live. It was my first time trying on gowns, and my sister picked out a particular one that she thought I would love. It was only the second dress I tried on, and I just knew it was the one. I tried on a few dresses after to be safe, but nothing compared. I was in love with it and the blush-colored belt we picked out to complete the look.”

Alexandra Dalton

“I found my dress on a trip to New York City. At the time I was living in Washington State, and I flew in so that I could look for the perfect dress with the people I love. When I arrived at Saks, my maid of honor surprised me—I had no idea she would be there, and I knew it was going to be the day I would find my dress. As soon as I put it on, I could picture myself walking down the aisle with my Dad, and I knew I had found the one.”

Ashley Pepe

“I had been in love with Sareh Nouri’s designs from the moment I got engaged, and I found out she was hosting a trunk show at a boutique that was somewhat local. When I saw the date was the one-year anniversary of my dad’s passing, I knew it was fate. I went with my entire family—there were 11 of us. “The dress” was the first dress I tried on. I knew it was the one, and once the veil was on my head, it was immediate tears and champagne!”

How to Guarantee Your Groom Looks Almost as Good as You, No Matter the Venue

Original Source: http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/typepad/style_me_pretty/~3/OE_2MPEqSpI/

No two venues are alike, so outfitting your groom + groomsmen in a one size fits all ensemble? Definitely not an option. Because whether you’re saying “I do” on a seriously sunny beach or in a field of purple tulips, your guys need to look the part. Enter The Tie Bar. It’s our go-to source for premium neckwear + accessories that also happens to be the solution to all of your styling problems. Scroll for a look that is sooo on point.

BARN

1. Merchants Row Plaid Bow Tie 2. Linen Archetype Lapel Pin

You know we’ve never seen a rustic wedding we didn’t adore, but when it comes to styling your bridal party for some barn dancin’ into the wee hours of the morning, not just any bow tie will do. With The Tie Bar, you can easily narrow down the awesome options (hello, gingham pocket square) with the help of their in-house wedding stylists, or simply peruse all of the neckwear + accessories in every color of the rainbow. It’s that simple, you guys.

BOAT HOUSE

1. Arbor Stripe Bow Tie 2. Seersucker Pocket Square 3. High Roller Cufflinks

We’re big, big fans of nautical affairs with a side of prep, so when it comes to selecting groom + groomsmen attire that shows off that perfect prepster vibe, we turn to The Tie Bar for luxe options at a price point that is as budget-friendly as it gets. (Trust us.) From motorboat cufflinks to seersucker lapel flowers to fab striped socks, they’ve got you covered from head to toe. And honestly, we love that.

BLACK TIE

1. Jazz Plaid Bow Tie 2. Golden Slant Cufflinks

No doubt about it, black tie weddings are awesome… and luxurious… and sophisticated. So putting together a chic look that simply screams elegance? It takes The Tie Bar. From gold shot tie bars to fab shoelaces (yes, shoelaces!) to the coolest ever metal collar stays, they’ll make sure your men are rockin’ that debonoir style down the aisle… guaranteed.

BEACH

1. Bayside Pocket Square 2. BHLDN Blush Dot Tie

Saying “I do” with your toes in the sand doesn’t mean sacrificing style. Nope, with The Tie Bar, you can be sure that your destination soiree is full of sun AND chic groomsmen. Think bright, vibrant hues (I’m looking at you, coral bow tie), crazy cool touches (hello, suspenders and pineapple tie bars) and price points that will make your wallet happy. It’s a win-win.

Ready to take that walk down the aisle surrounded by a dapper groom and groomsmen, no matter the locale? Visit The Tie Bar for everything you’ll ever need, plus inspiration for your guests, as well. You can shop the new Tie Bar wedding collection, check out all of the latest styles AND peruse their BHLDN collab. It’s awesome, loves.

3 Common Wedding Fears and How to Beat Them

Original Source: http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/typepad/style_me_pretty/~3/4aPg0TkPwGE/

From Desiree Hartsock… Love is big. It’s a deep, bottomless feeling that keeps on expanding. It starts with just the two of you and before you know it, it’s grown to include a dog, a home, a life. Then, you add in the sweet elation of an engagement and a wedding date and you open yourself up to a whole caboodle of emotions. Yes, most of them are amazing — you feel giddy one moment and then just so deeply grateful the next. But you might also feel a little overwhelmed or stressed. And I totally understand. As my love story played out on a national stage, I felt pressure to design the perfect wedding. Today I’m sharing some insight on how I maintained my perspective and kept those wedding fears at bay.

Fear #1: You’re afraid you won’t have the most stylish wedding.

We live in a digital age of perfection, where the prettiest weddings (hello, beautiful sites like Style Me Pretty!) are viewable with just a few clicks on our computers or phones. It’s easy to feel like you and your wedding won’t measure up. But here’s a secret: I’ve worked with plenty of brides who seemed to “have it all”: a gorgeous figure, a huge wedding budget, a supportive fiancé, yet every one of them had insecurities about their wedding.

The truth is, there is no “perfect” wedding because the world isn’t perfect. That’s where grace comes in to say, “you don’t need to be perfect, dear bride.” So try to set those fears of inferiority aside. Focus on what you do have and how you can create a special event that celebrates love.

Fear 2: You’re afraid something will go majorly wrong at your wedding.

Oh, wedding stress dreams! Have you had them? Suddenly your eight hours of blissful dark are interrupted by nightmares that you’ve lost your wedding gown or you’re at the alter and can’t say your vows no matter how hard you try. Since you’ve probably never planned something as big or as personal as a wedding, it’s easy to fixate on the disaster possibilities.

Here’s the thing – it IS possible that something will go wrong, but it’s unlikely that everything will go wrong. And the good news? You’ll be surrounded by amazing professionals who are fairy godmothers when it comes to fixing wedding mishaps. In fact, they’ve probably seen and experienced most common bridal day issues firsthand and know how to fix them.

Leave the fixing to them, sip a mimosa in the bridal suite, and focus on all the beautiful things that are going right – like your exquisite bouquet or the weather being unexpectedly lovely. And, even if something goes disastrously wrong, try to embrace it. Later on, it’ll be woven into the fabric of your wedding day story and will bring laughter for years to come.

Fear #3: You’re afraid your relationship will change after the wedding.

Your relationship will change once you’re pronounced Mr. & Mrs. But it will grow deeper, sweeter, and infinitely more powerful. Sure, you may need some time to adjust to the change – especially if you are moving in for the first time or transitioning to a new home. All change takes time but know that the happily ever you always wanted is waiting on the other side. And trust that the one you said ‘yes’ to will be worthy of all your yeses, from now to the side-by-side porch rockers in 70 years.

At the end of the day, weddings are stressful. If you have a bridezilla moment or let yourself get overwhelmed, it’s okay! Just take some deep breaths and refocus on the love and support you have in your life. Time flies by so quickly so try to enjoy this chapter of life in all its highs and lows—and let it set the framework for all the wondrous, messy, painful and painfully beautiful chapters that are yet to come. Happy wedding planning!

xoxo, Desiree
