Fashion Friday: A Blue and White Wedding

I’ve mentioned before that when pondering creative careers earlier on in life I seriously considered becoming a wedding planner. I absolutely LOVE every aspect of event planning- from the fashion right down to the paper goods.  So I had some fun today styling a wedding look for a pretty spring/ summer event from the bride down to the guests! I hope you enjoy it (especially those planning their own celebrations!)

I am obsessed with Lela Rose’s bridal gowns, and this one does not disappoint.  Simple, elegant and a forever classic it provides simplicity but drama (hello- check out the back of it below!)  I;d pair it with light blue shoes (as a fun “something blue”) and statement vintage inspired chandelier earrings and a sleek updo.  A white/green/blue-grey bouquet wrapped in hand-dyed silk ribbon adds a pretty pop of color.  For the groom, an impeccably tailored navy suit and striped tie does just fine. Maybe add a pocket square for a bit more “fashion”. :)

BRIDE: wedding gown // shoes // silk ribbon // earrings // engagement ring // nail polish

GROOM: suit // shirt // tie // shoes


For bridesmaids I still LOVE the look of a fun ballroom skirt paired with a cashmere tee and big statement necklace. Fun, adorable and easily wearable again.  For groomsmen I love the chambray color suits with navy ties to set them apart from the groom but still relate beautifully.


MAIDS: Skirt // cashmere tee // necklace // earrings // heels

GROOMSMEN: Suit jacket // suit pants // shirt // tie // shoes

And here is a round up of some fun spring dresses to wear as a guest at a variety of weddings!

  1. Another source you may want to check out is Online TJ Maxx. Just got the Parker Alina dress in blue there for $100, regularly $400! Reminds me of a dressier version of the Kate spade yellow dress above a little bit. Continue to love FF. You always knock it out of the park!

  2. I totally agree with the wedding planner idea! I planned my daughter’s wedding last fall and loved every. single. minute. of all the details and fun. I hated when it was over because I thoroughly enjoyed it! Love your ideas!!!

  3. Either it’s the wedding gown or the way it sits on the model but it seems to accentuate broad shoulders and a thicker waist giving it a Caitlyn Jenner masculine look from a distance. Not a very flattering feminine look first glance. I do love the blue color suit selection for the groom. How do you decide whether to choose brown or black shoes to compliment the look?

    i have a black tie wedding near asheville, NC and need something to wear to a party the night before and the wedding….
    i actually wanted to wear the ball skirt, but can’t find a top appropriate for my age.

  5. Shhhhhh! I am obsessed with that JCrew ‘maids’ skirt you have shown. I don’t have one thing to wear it to, but I might buy it anyway haha! Great round up of wedding guest dresses too – thanks Erin!
