Happy Thursday! As usual, I'm going totally against the grain here with a bright summer wedding by Wayne Chinnock Photography. This orange and white beauty has so much inspiration for a colorful affair. I love the bride's gorgeous dress and how dapper does the groom look with his orange bowtie? Let's get inspired shall we.

I am so excited to have Sukey of Dress for the Wedding on the blog today. Dress for the Wedding is the ultimate resource on wedding styling for everyone (from bride to guest) and one of my favorite blogs ever. Check it out at www.dressforthewedding.com - you won't be sorry.
I was so thrilled when Kunbi asked me to do a guest post for a wedding guest dress look. My blog, Dress for the Wedding, specializes in wedding attire and style ideas, including wedding guest dresses, so this collaboration was indeed a "Perfect" fit!
The Vera Wang dress I have picked was inspired by Kunbi herself. As we see on Aisle Perfect, Kunbi's style is impeccable -- one only has to witness her Vera Wang wedding gown to see why I think that -- so Vera Wang and Aisle Perfect style will always be entwined in my mind. I wanted to pick up on the radiant sun-like pattern of this dress so I have added some gold and gray accessories that echo the sun motif. I went high-end with those gilded Gucci shoes, which had that perfect gray and gold balance as well.
I thought this outfit would not only go to regal evening weddings in style, but also could be a fantastic dress for this holiday season. If you don't want to wear black, red, or green -- why not try a little gold? You'll be sure to glow and gather admirers wherever you wear this!

Okay our wedding favors were one of my proudest accomplishments of wedding planning. I racked my brain for over four months trying to figure out meaningful and functional gifts for our friends and family. The great thing about Nigerian weddings is that you actually don't even have to worry about wedding favors as someone - either your parents or a close family member or even an acquaintance (funny but true) will come with favors to give out. Besides our primary favors, there were bookmarks, bubus ( casual african loungewear), scarves and tote bags shared by members of our family. You could basically walk in and leave with a full outfit- haha.

Happy Monday friends.Today we have a pretty perfect engagement shoot by Still-Life Media. Margaret and Charles went for a gorgeous outdoor session on the Rice University campus and we're in love! These pictures make us (a) want to pack our bags and head down south as the weather in New York is nothing to write home about and (b) want to share in this couple's adorable chemistry- like we can feel it! Anyway, this is just a preview into the fabulousness that will be Margaret and Charles' February 2014 wedding. Let's start the week right shall we?

Yay we made it to Friday and you know what that means- more gorgeous dresses for very friendly prices. I really love this week's collection of wedding gowns under $500 because they are very varied. We even included a cute number for brides looking to elope or have a fab civil wedding. Get to shopping ladies because these deals won't last very long.
