Our Wedding Day – Part 2

I’m back to share some more from our wedding day!! This post is all about who wore what!! Everyone looked so so amazing and we were wearing some really great brands!! To give you some background, my wedding style/theme was romantic, soft, feminine, and traditional.  When I saw all the planning and picking out finally come together that day, it was magical, just how I had pictured it all.  It was an amazing feeling and I am so glad I get to share it all with you!!!


I said “yes” to the dress & veil at Cloud Nine Bridal Boutique in Peoria.  I can’t speak highly enough about how great they were to work with!! They give every bride the best experience and make you feel soo special!! I have worked with them as a bridesmaid and now a bride, and I will be back I’m sure:) The designer of my gown is Essence of Australia!! It didn’t take me long to fall in love with this wedding gown!  The train is stunning to start, I loved the high neckline and feminine details.  The lace is so amazing and there were small clear beads all over the top adding just enough sparkle!!

Bridal Accessories – Clutch | Earrings – similar | Shoes

The clutch and earrings were both borrowed from my sweet sister-in-law, but I found really good dupes for you!! I loveeee the look of big cluster earrings for brides and bridesmaids.  As you can see I wore sandals.  I originally bought a pair gorgeous Badgley Mischka heels in blush and once it got closer to the wedding I changed my mind!  I exchanged the heels for these adorable sandals and I am SOOO happy I did!! I was so comfortable all day and night.  I knew the train on my dress would be hard to handle and I didn’t need 3 extra inches of length at the reception (cause I knew I’d throw off my heels to dance)!!! So any brides-to-be on the fence about shoes – go with the sandals!!!!


Matt & the boys bought all their suits from Jos.A.Bank.  They offer awesome group prices which was so worth it!! These light grey suits are the 1905 Collection Suit Separates.  Meaning, the pants and jacket are sold separately and are available in all sizes and fits, like slim, tailored, big & tall, etc.  This was beneficial for our wedding party and really any wedding party for the guys that are all different sizes!!  I knew all the boys would have a suit that fit well and looked great!  Jos.A.Bank also did all of the tailoring for great rates right in the store!

Groom’s Accessories – Shoes | Socks – similar | Tie | Belt

Jacket | Vest | Shirt | Pants

Wedding Party

The boys all looked so handsome!! These suits are exactly what I wanted and look I was going for.

My sweet girls looked so stunning in their chiffon dresses.  We found them online at Weddington Way! They have soo many affordable dress style options and colors available (great for mixing and matching)!! I picked the Diana style in the color rose, which is a little darker than blush.  I loved the high neckline on the girls because it was similar to my dress and was flattering on everyone.  The girls didn’t get to try on the dresses before purchasing which was the only negative.  They ended up looking so gorgeous though!! The dresses fit large on everyone so if you’re ordering from Weddington Way in the future, order a size down.

Our flower girls looked like little princesses!!! We found their sweet and simple dresses at David’s Bridal on clearance! Such a steal! They had cap sleeves to start and we had them removed, it totally changed the look of the dress for the better:)  I found a good dupe here!!



The Moms

My mom wore the most stunning blush Adrianna Papell Sequin Gown.  I loved and it looked so great on her!! It was so beautiful that she only needed earrings and a couple dainty bracelets to complete the look.  Her shoes were a simple silver wedge and neutral clutch.

Matt’s Mom also looked amazinggg in her Blue Tadashi Shoji Gown (similar here).  She wore a pewter colored wedge that looked so great with the color of her dress!! Both of them bought their dresses from Nordstrom.  They have a great selection of Mother of the Bride/Groom dresses online and with free shipping and returns, you can’t beat it:)
