ECS has teamed up with Lover.ly to create a destination wedding look perfect for Bora Bora! While the cooler weather is upon us I am dreaming of sun, sand and coconut cocktails! Bora Bora is absolutely gorgeous (as if I needed to tell you!) with it’s perfect beaches and amazing resorts. Styling this outfit was so much fun – I almost opted out of shoes (because who needs them frolicking on the beach?!) :]
I found this Grace Loves Lace dress and immediately fell in love with the brand. If I was a wedding dress brand I would be Grace Loves Lace (Loren Loves Lace? hmm..)! Each dress had me ooh-ing and ahh-ing! These dresses are perfect for those warmer weather climates like Bora Bora with light, lace, chiffon and open-back dresses. I chose the Avril two piece dress. I love making a statement with fashion and thinking outside the box. I haven’t come across a two piece wedding dress that works, but Grace Loves Lace makes this look effortless. It looks elegant yet fun and fresh. As the website states “The Grace Loves Lace Avril wedding dress is for the indefinable bride: the woman with innate style, who knows fashion but doesn’t follow it.” This look is not for the faint of heart – be prepared to WOW.
Since the dress is so exquisite I chose very simple jewelry with light touches of gold and white. The bangles roughly shaped like coral and the white drusy stone earring incorporate the beach in a stylish way. I chose a simple headpiece instead of a veil. I have photographed weddings for about 3 years now and veils do not belong anywhere near water. The wind is too strong – most people do not take that in to account and while they’re walking down the aisle they have a 4+ ft long veil going crazy in the wind. It reminds me of those blowup figures car sales lots use that fill with air and do a crazy dance. Anyways, BEWARE of crazy flying veils – it happens way too often. :]
The clutch and shoes had a little glitz and glamour to this tropical wedding outfit. If you are frugal like me, even on your wedding day you will probably be looking to save a little bit of money! :] Both clutches create the same feel and are very similar – one is $180 and the other is $2250. Accessories are a great way to either save or splurge – you decide!
