Guest Post: An "I Pick Pretty" Wedding

{Disclaimer: If you're in Google Reader, you won't see the inspiration board.  Click on over for the real thing.}


Hi everyone!  Sarah from Belle on Heels in for Mrs. I Pick Pretty today. 

When our heroine asked me to fill in for her while she's gallavanting in Charleston with her Anonymous Husband, she suggested I maybe post something wedding-related.  That was all the nudge I needed, since I am already struggling with major wedding withdrawal since my own nuptials just over a week ago.  Since it's a not-so-well-kept secret on my blog that I dream of one day running my own wedding planning company, I decided to plan a wedding for Melissa.

Yes, yes, I realize this whole Anonymous Husband thing means our gal is already hitched, but I thought it would be fun for me to imagine the wedding I would plan for her if she were my client.
My inspiration board was inspired by her gorgie hometown of San Diego, her love and adoration of "Pride and Prejudice", and her drool-worthy shoe collection, the crown jewel of which are her patent leather Valentino pumps. Yum.

I picked a TDF Monique Lhullier gown from her Fall 2012 collectionThe lace version of her beloved Valentino pumps {aren't these just the perfect wedding shoes?!} Naturally, she would carry a bouquet of lily-of-the-valley, just like her doppelganger, Princess Grace {the original Princess Shinylocks}. Pearls and lovely coral bridesmaids dresses from J.Crew.  Of course, we can't forget AH, so he gets a preppy and dapper green-and-white striped bowtie.

The setting for this affair would be a darling little church and a reception at the classic Hotel del Coronada {if you've never been, add it to your list of must-visits!} Invitations feature a sweet silhouette of the couple and  Elizabeth Bennett-esque calligraphy.  Guests are treated to a charming basketweave wedding cake and delicate little sand-dollar cookies on a bed of brown sugar as their favor.  And we'll send the newlyweds blissfully on their way in a glamorous vintage convertible!

Well, what do you think?  A wedding fit for Mrs. I Pick Pretty?

Melissa, thanks for letting me use your blog to continue my wedding obsession.  I hope you and the Mr. have a wonderful time in Charleston!
