Today’s Southern Spotting is more than just a pretty face, y’all. Read on for the beautiful story behind Becky’s necklace!

From the bride:

“The necklace was made from lace removed from my mother’s wedding dress. I had originally wanted to wear her dress for our wedding, but it didn’t work out as planned. I had seen this necklace on Pinterest and loved it. It seemed like a beautiful way to still include my mom’s dress. I picked out two pieces of lace, bought a chain and clasps from the arts and craft store, and put it together with some wire cutters and pliers. It’s definitely not the most sturdy piece of jewelry, but it did the trick. To me, it completed the dress. I loved the way it turned out. And I was still able to wear my mom’s dress, even if only a part of it.”

Huge thanks to Bethany & Dan Photography for sending this gem our way!

P.S. Nicole and I were discussing how there needs to be a better name for things like Becky’s hair thing, because “hairpiece” just sounds like a toupee. Hair ornament? Hair adornment? Hair swag? Let us know if you come up with something good!

    In addition to loving the necklace, I’m obsessed with this dress – does anyone by any chance know the designer & style number??

Y’all know Mason jars sometimes get a bad rap in the wedding world (but that’s okay – we still unabashedly love them!). However, I think even canning jar haters will be won over by today’s sweet Southern Spotting: Ball jar sugar cookies!

From the bride, Chelsea:

The theme of our wedding was very rustic and completely DIY. Our tablescapes were compiled from barnwood boxes, burlap squares, and mason jars. When we were thinking of options for our favors, we wanted something that would be consistent with the theme, but a little more unique. While looking on Pinterest I saw a picture of a mason jar cookie. I instantly knew that it was the perfect choice for our wedding favors! The cookies were made by Simple Treats by KT (simpletreatsbykt at yahoo dot com). It is a local, in-home sweet shop that specializes in cookies, cupcakes and party treats. We told them what we wanted and they turned out perfectly!

Thank you so much to Jo Photo for sending this sweet treat our way!

P.S. Have you heard? To celebrate their 100th anniversary, Ball is introducing the new Ball Heritage Mason Jar Collection! The new collection is tinted with the coveted antique blue, and will be available in the pint jar size. They’re currently for sale here and at some Ace Hardware stores!

The fun thing about bridesmaid dresses these days is that they’re actually fun. Right? I mean, they can still be a painful part of the planning process (as evidenced by my own struggles!), but at least there are far more options, and far fewer “rules,” than there used to be, which frees all of us up to find the perfect fit for our wedding and our style. I love how Lauren’s bridesmaids ended up in a dress that was a perfect blend of her aesthetic and background AND her groom’s — and delightfully Southern to boot!

These lovely dresses are the “Zoe” style by LulaKate in royal seersucker! From Lauren:

When pairing an authentic sailor from the north with a self-proclaimed princess from the Deep South, we knew the vibe of our wedding would have to be a compromise. So, we met in the middle. Incorporating the seersucker look for my bridesmaids was a must. The simple, clean print made with cool, airy fabric was the perfect pick for our hot August ceremony. Selecting the subtle stripes was the easy part. Deciding whom and where to purchase the dresses from was going to be the hard part… until I stumbled upon LulaKate, that is. Based in Charleston, SC, LulaKate’s fresh selections provided me with a pleasant and easy shopping experience that I couldn’t have been happier with. Every detail was flawless, from Zoe’s halter bows draping my bridesmaids’ necks to the soft blue and white tones that complemented the nearby sea. Our “traditional meets nautical” vision was brought to life on Jekyll Island, and with LulaKate’s creations, the wind in my hair and the Southern sea serenading us in the background, I couldn’t have dreamt up a more perfect beginning to kick off the rest of my life.

Thank you so much for sending these beauties our way, Sarah!

    So pretty! Love LulaKate and seersucker. So fun to see these in a real wedding – especially love how the bows echo the one in the bride’s gown.

    How romantic. I love the moss swinging from the old oak tree as a backdrop. The photographer did an excellent job using natural framing in the last photo as well.

    As soon as I saw these on Instagram, I rushed over to the Lula Kate website to check them out–I’m determined to wear a seersucker dress for my graduation, and these are officially a contender!

    […] Oh, how I love cotton bridesmaid dresses, and I particularly have a soft spot for seersucker bridesmaid dresses! For my own summer wedding, I desperately wanted cotton seersucker dresses, and they were so hard to find in regular styles, in the right color,  and never mind in bridesmaid dress styles.  Thankfully, the trend is back and J.Crew offers many cotton options, and brings us this seersucker look, too.  I also know that bridesmaid dress designers like LulaKate and Coren Moore do seersucker dresses now, as well. Want to see how sweet they can be? Check out this adorable ruffled style from LulaKate featured in Southern Weddings! […]
