As I wait anxiously for my complete set of wedding photos, I wanted to take a minute and share this one above featuring my favorite nail polish, Priti NYC! (Photo by Volatile Photography)
I originally fell in love with the colors of the Priti Bridal Bouquet, however, upon learning that their polishes are completely non-toxic, I was hooked! My heart was set on Pink Jewel Carnation and it did not disappoint. It was the perfect amount of pink blush on my hands to compliment my pink shoes (more on those later).
The polish itself is flawless. No streaks, clumps or bubbles. It went on smooth and dried even prettier than I imagined; even the manicurist asked about the brand! I did the traditional ‘something blue’ on my toes and went with Dorothy Palm. My shoes were closed toe, but the color made me smile.When you have a chance, I’d highly recommend checking out Priti NYC. I can’t wait to see what colors they have for 2013!

The race is on to book a venue and start planning my wedding! Since we are aiming for this Fall, it’s definitely time to gather some inspirational photos of dresses and accessories. Of course, my aesthetic will fare toward vintage but I do love a modern touch too. In round one of gathering inspiration I fell in love with 77Diamonds eternity rings and the gowns from Fancy Bridal. Suggestions are VERY welcome since the next step is purchasing some of these lovely things!
Above – Polka Dot Perfection – The skirt on the Rebecca Dress by Fancy Bridal is spectacular! The Adarna ring from 77Diamonds would make a perfect match for my estate ring. BHLDN’s polka-dot Mary Janes are a fun whimsical touch to the look.
Below – Classic Hollywood – This art deco inspired Diedre dress by Fancy Bridal is so chic; I love the way the sleeves fall. The veil – I’m still swooning over just about everything Preston & Olivia creates. More on that HERE. Another lovely band of gold, rose gold to be precise, the Somoa by 77Diamonds. Finally, a vintage clutch by Fashion Rerun.
Below – Black & White Chic – This collection is more about the concept, less about the complete look. The Suzette dress by Fancy Bridal had me at the big bow! The black gold Vogue ring is my favorite of the 77Diamonds eternity rings. Not sure if I could pull it off as my wedding band but definitely a first anniversary gift! This 50’s style birdcage veil by Agnes Hart is chic perfection. I can see it with so many types of dresses. Last but not least, these Vera Wang heels by David’s Bridal are just too sweet to pass by!
Once again, suggestions are welcome for dresses, shoes, rings, bags or anything wedding related! Thanks in advance.
