Monthly Round-Up :: January

by in Main on

Since the Weekly Round-Ups are working so well for us, we thought we’d introduce a similar feature to recap each month! There’s a slight twist, though: for each month, Katharine and I, as well as a rotating guest editor, will choose our top picks in a number of categories. At the end of the year, your votes will help us crown the best of 2011!

This month’s guest editor is Miss Whitney, she of the giveaways and contests. Let’s begin!

FAVORITE WEDDING DRESS: Katharine fell hard for Taylor’s Oscar de la Renta (here + here), while I loved Ashley’s Lazaro gown (here + here). Whitney picked Sidney’s perfectly Southern Anne Barge (here + here).

FAVORITE BRIDESMAID DRESS: I went for Tiffany’s rust-colored twist-neck gowns from David’s Bridal (here + here). Once again Katharine was loving the fashion from Taylor + Steven’s wedding, choosing Taylor’s Bella Bridesmaid ‘maid dresses as her pick (here + here). Whitney was also digging orange, opting for the coral Amsale dresses from Ashley + Steve’s wedding (here + here).

FAVORITE FEMALE ACCESSORY: Jennifer’s sparkly louboutins? Definitely my pick. (More here + here!). Katharine chose Hillary’s peach cardigan (here + here), while Whitney also fell for shoes, though this time, they were perfectly pink Kate Spades (here + here).

FAVORITE GROOM STYLE: Surprise! It was a three-way tie across the board — Collin and his men stole the show this month! (More here + here.)

FAVORITE DETAIL: I agonized over my choice for days for this category, eventually deciding on Sidney + Matt’s mismatched china dessert plates (here + here). Katharine, on the other hand, knew immediately what to pick: Jennifer + Armand’s candy bar, of course! (More here + here.) Whitney geeked out over the Scrabble details in Hillary + Matt’s wedding (here).

FAVORITE BOUQUET: Katharine chose Meredith + Blake’s pale pink and blue bridesmaid bouquets (here + here), while Whitney chose Taylor’s bridesmaids’ tropical magenta and purple blooms (here). I loved Ashley’s clutch of peach and white perfection (here + here).

FAVORITE SWEET: Ashley + Steve’s adorable confection stole Katharine’s heart (a “no brainer,” she says!), while I chose Meredith + Blake’s pink and blue cupcakes (here + here). Whitney chose Jennifer + Armand’s candy bar (a crowd favorite, obviously!).

FAVORITE PHOTO: Sidney and her Dad waiting for the ceremony to begin captured my attention (here), while Katharine loved the black and white shot of Taylor + Steven in their getaway car (here). Whitney swooned for the shot of Meredith + Blake post-ceremony in the field (here).

FAVORITE OVERALL WEDDING: It was a tough call, of course, but we eventually chose: for Katharine, Taylor + Steven, for Whitney, Sidney + Matt, and for me, Ashley + Steve.

Now tell us: which were your top picks? Do you agree with our choices? Chime in in the comments!

The Round-Up will normally go out on the last day of the month, but since we missed January, we figured we’d do January and February back-to-back. Look for our picks from February tomorrow!
