{Bridal Fashion} The Dress

This is my first blog post about wedding dresses, I know, I can't believe I haven't done one yet either! I've done one on bridesmaids dresses though. What brought this post up is because of 1 dress in particular. This David's Bridal dress below was actually bought and worn by THREE of my clients and all of them were in March 2012!! Nicole, my assistant and I were in shock and couldn't believe it was happening. Nicole also works at the Savannah David's Bridal and said that it's one of the most popular dresses. All three of the brides looked different in this dress plus their wedding styles were also very distinct. Have a look for yourself at Whitney, Andrea, and Jenny. I've been dress shopping with most of my friends for their wedding dress and it's never an easy task to find the right one. Everyone has unique body types so it's going to look much different on you then in the picture you've seen of the dress. After looking online at a few dresses, here are some that I found so pretty! 
Which is your favorite???

{Real Wedding} Devon & Rob

Devon and Rob's wedding was such an elegant affair to remember!! Devon contacted me back in January with just about 3 months to plan her intimate destination wedding in Savannah, and we were able to get it done thru many phone calls and emails. Many of her personal details were purchased from small bushiness and thru Her color scheme was chocolate, champagne and magnolias - didn't everything came together well? Her event was very family focused with a strong importance of including the children who attended. All the kids who came received a FUN bag of toys, coloring books, stickers, glow sticks, and more!! Many wonderful vendors helped make this event gorgeous and here are those who contributed:

Ceremony/Reception Location: Elizabeth on 37th Street
Wedding Planner: Simply Savannah Events/All the Little Details Designs
Photographer: Memories N MoreCake: Two CakesHair & Makeup: Joli A BridesCeremony Music: Chris Dooley Violist & PianistRentals: In Any EventFlorist: Etsy vendor fabric flowers 

Eco-friendly details: supporting etsy and small business owners, ceremony & reception in the same location, organic food menu, no flowers used, and family carpooled to Savannah. 

 One of the funniest pictures from the night came from their 91 year old Grandmother, boy is she a character! 
 Also getting all the children who came to the wedding in one picture presented itself with a more difficult task than planned!
 The food at Elizabeth's on 37th was divine!
 Carrie of Two Cakes has mastered perfectionism and executing fine details for wedding cakes!

{Real Wedding} Dani & Craig

Dani and Craig are such fun loving sweet people and wonderful to work with. Everyone was actually a joy to work with, their family and the vendors! The photographer, Andrea Mate, came in from Atlanta and did an amazing job with the crisp and flawless images. Carrie of Two Cakes, who is part of The Wedding Studios, created such an amazing sand castle cake with edible sea shells. Their wedding was very much a DIY since they brought recycled glass jars for all the table settings, they went to the flower wholesaler and each bridesmaid, along with the bride, made their own bouquets, and their family/friends helped along side me at the reception to decorate. Their style was perfect for a beach ceremony, plus their colors really popped! Thankfully, the rain on their wedding day waited just until the ceremony was over, all the pictures were taken and they were at the reception!! You can tell that everyone had a great time and hammed it up for the camera. Many people came in from the Atlanta area, where Dani & Craig originally met, but now the couple lives in Washington state. Have fun looking at their special day!
