I love the idea of a mid-summer wedding outdoors, with a bold, fearless color palette made pretty and wispy. It’s young, modern, fun, and honestly, that Calvin Klein hammered silk dress (below) is probably the lightest fabric you could possibly put your bridesmaids in.
Of course, if you had attended my wedding eight years ago, you would never guess that I cared. We were young, broke, and planned our wedding in three short months, so the end result was a simple backyard affair where my parents did the catering, where we bought every flower in every color at the florist that morning, and where, if family friends hadn’t arrived early to help, the wedding couldn’t have happened. It was absolutely perfect, a genuine expression of love so sweet and intimate that even if you were there and didn’t know us, you probably would have cried.
Yet sometime between then and now, I’ve become—um, not obsessed exactly; more like very interested—in weddings. I chalk it up to my interest in everything related to design (and not at all to my interest in clothes, paper, and food, because, you know, that wouldn’t make any sense).
