Lover.ly: Destination Wedding



Hello everyone!

I’ve been asked by the lovely people over at Lover.ly to design my own little bridal look for a destination wedding set in either Paris, Italy or Bora Bora and of course I leaped at the chance to be part of this! I picked Italy as my destination and I’m going to be honest, I am one of those girls who despite not even being close to engagement has already planned almost their entire wedding everything from my dress, colour scheme, flowers, location, hair and even centre pieces have been worked out in my head already, obsessed or prepared? Maybe a bit of both!

Why not find your own perfect dress here and plan your own perfect wedding on Lover.ly?



This is the picture I was given to work off of for the Italy destination, when I saw it I immediately thought of something flowy, natural and lightweight since it seems quite hot but also something with lace as to compliment the hills and houses in the background of this picture. 





The dress I ended up picking was the 'Santina' by Watters specifically the colour on the first two pictures because they give off a more silver/purple sheen than the Ivory one, although the Ivory one is more traditionally coloured for a wedding dress I feel like the other was just so much more unique and memorable. I absolutely adore this dress, the back with the sheer material and the pearl buttons are to die for, and the deep V neckline with the lace over lay give it such an elegant and modern feel. 

Although I felt that the dress is absolutely beautiful, I still felt that it needed some sparkle to make it that tiny bit more special for a wedding dress. This belt went perfectly with the dress because the scalloped edges mimic the lace on the dress and the belt itself is quite slim so won't be over powering to the actual design.  


I'm a firm believer in having a statement shoe for your wedding day even if your dress covers them completely, it's your day and you deserve some nice shoes! These shoes are from Freya Rose and are absolutely beautiful, the reason I picked them was because of the flowers (which they conveniently sell as clip ons as well so if you don't want to pay that much for shoes you could always just buy the clip ons and cheaper shoes to go with them) which again like the belt mimic the lace which is important to keep constancy in your design. 


Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. Now I can't do anything for the old or borrowed but I can style this with a something blue, and what better way to do that than with some lovely dark blue sapphire earrings? 


Finally to finish with a beautiful pink Protea and wild flowers bouquet, the pink brings out the beautiful purple sheen in the dress as well as working well with the Italian climate (it's the bouquet I actually want for my eventual wedding so I just had to throw it in since it's so beautiful). The wildness of this bouquet also works well with the bohemian aspect of the dress and the loose curly hair which makes the whole outfit more summery and laid back.
