Monthly Archives: March 2011

We are having an unfortunate burst of cold weather in North Carolina, and it seems like winter has decided to revisit us once again. I’ve pulled my pea coat back out of the closet and I’m consuming hot coffee 24/7 to stay warm (side effect: I’m also slightly jittery, and super productive). One other thing is making me feeling all warm inside, and that is the gorgeous jewelry of Brandy Pham. Take one look at her jewelry and accessories collection and you, too, will be feeling nice and toasty!

Brandy’s jewelry has just the right amount of femininity, and I would honestly be happy to add every single item to my jewelry collection. Her necklaces are the type that you could pair with comfortable jeans or a drop-dead ball gown. The Amy Pearl Necklace would be a gorgeous addition to that outfit you already have planned for the bridal shower, and couldn’t you just see the Haley stud earrings being the perfect complement to your dream wedding gown?

To Enter: Brandy Pham’s collection is dominated by black and white pieces. Leave a comment below telling us your wedding colors for a chance to win!

Win: A pair of the Haley stud earrings paired with EITHER the All That Shimmers Silver Bangles OR the Amy Pearl Necklace (your choice!).

You have until Tuesday, April 5th at midnight to enter for your chance to win some gorgeous jewelry. I’d enter sooner rather than later if I were you!

    Our wedding colors are pink and champagne… and it’s the lovely “honeysuckle” pink : ) Amazing jewelry, Brandy- I just love the Amy pearl necklace!

  13. avatar Christi reply

    My colors are light pink/blush, with shades of blue and white. I haven’t finished picking out bridesmaid dresses but I am considering navy since not everyone likes to wear light pink, especially my fair skinned family and friends.

      Haley stud earrings for a Haley!

      Winning the earrings and either the bracelet or necklace would be a dream come true for my black and white winter shimmer wedding!

      My wedding dress is black and white and I am going to be carrying a brooch bouquet, so the earrings are just perfect! I tweeted your giveaway and hope to win!

  14. avatar Serena reply

    Green + White with yellow accents!

  15. avatar Joy reply

    My colors are sunset, succulent, and ocean. What that comes down to is different shades of corals, greens, and blues. I love all colors so this was a very hard decision, there is no way I could be a bride that would narrow it down to only two colors! And this way I can have all different shades of the main colors, this way my appetite for color is satisfied!

  16. avatar Jeannine @ Small & Chic in Cville reply

    My wedding colors are ivory and pale green. At least, that’s what they are today. Who knows what they’ll be next week. ;)

  17. avatar S reply

    blue white & gold

  18. avatar Haley reply

    My colors are a mustardy yellow and a sage green for a July wedding. The bridesmaids will be in sage green short dresses, with billy ball bouquets! I adore the Haley earrings… and… my name is Haley… how fitting!

  19. avatar sarah b reply

    we’re planning on charcoal, yellow, ivory & green!

  20. avatar Ashley reply

    Black & White! I can’t believe I’m the first “black & white” comment! Any of these pieces would be a beautiful addition to my gown, but if I win, I might just pass them along to my sweet mom as a gift… they would look amazing with her wedding-day attire and after all of the planning, I think she deserves them more than me!

  21. avatar kasey reply

    Green & Orange!

  22. avatar Bella reply

    White, Lavender and Blue!

  23. avatar Rebecca reply

    I’m doing grey, dusty pink/peach, and a vintage blue and green color. It’s a very vintage and rustic color scheme, slightly Alice in Wonderland!

  24. avatar Cheryl reply

  27. avatar Allyson L. reply

    My wedding colors are black and white! My dress has a black sash and the BM’s will be wearing black dresses and the Junior BM’s will be wearing black dresses with white sashes. The jewelry would coordinate perfectly and I’m still on the hunt for jewelry so I would love this.

  38. avatar Erin reply

    The colors for my September 2012 wedding are emerald, black, and silver–so Brandy Pham’s black and silver pieces would be a perfect fit!

    Our favorite color is blue, so it made picking wedding colors much easier, blue, white, and some silver.

Monthly Round-Up :: March 2011

by in Main on

This first month of spring brought some delightfully fresh real weddings, and we’ve got the fever to share them with you! March’s guest editor is another of our fabulous interns, Nicole.

FAVORITE WEDDING DRESS: Nicole fell in love with Stephanie’s Priscilla of Boston gown, while I loved Lindsay’s, also from POB! (Bonus: they both have straps!) Katharine loved Dana’s Rosa Clara.

FAVORITE BRIDESMAID DRESS: Katharine and Nicole agreed that Dana’s ‘maids, in their mix-and-match black dresses, were the peak of chic. I, on the other hand, voted for Kate’s bright bridesmaid mix!

FAVORITE FEMALE ACCESSORY: Pink ruffly shoes! I couldn’t help but choose them. Nicole opted for Lindsay’s handkerchief, while Katharine fell for Lindsay’s pretty blue cardigan.

FAVORITE MENSWEAR: Nicole and I were the ones agreeing this time around — we both concurred that Avery’s sharp tux was the menswear winner this month. Katharine loved JoJo and his black and white seersucker mini mes!

FAVORITE DETAIL: Stephanie and Avery’s delicate gardenia arrangement was my favorite (and oh-so-Southern!) detail this month. Nicole loved Kate + JoJo’s flowered bar menu, while Katharine wanted to boogie on Lindsay + Jonathan’s poolside dance floor.

FAVORITE BOUQUET: Gorgeous blooms are certainly NOT in short supply on the SW blog. Nicole and I went completely ga-ga for Engle’s bouquet, designed by Kim Fisher, while Katharine was all over Dana’s white blooms, courtesy of Dottie B.

FAVORITE SWEET: Katharine and I both agreed that Stephanie + Avery’s seaside black and white cake looked delightful (and delicious!). Nicole opted for Dana + Danny’s fruit-bedecked tiers.

FAVORITE PHOTO: In the end, we love the couple shots, it seems! From top to bottom, Katharine chose Melissa Schollaert’s, Nicole chose Joel Flory’s, and I chose Kristin Byrum’s.

FAVORITE WEDDING OVERALL: Katharine and Nicole both chose Stephanie + Avery’s classic, intimate wedding (here + here), while I went with Engle + Brian’s preppy seaside celebration (here + here).

How about you? Which was your favorite wedding? What do you think of our picks?

Since we had the most lovely spring weather last week, I thought these ingenious tulip boutonnieres would be the perfect Southern Spotting for today!

So simple and fresh, yet I’ve never seen this idea done before! A tulip boutonniere — would you try it?

See more from this spring wedding, photographed by Courtney Reese, here and here.

  2. avatar Jessica Horton reply

    That’s what our guys wore!!!! Tulips are my favorite & I could have cared less that I had to have them shipped in because our wedding was in October & they weren’t in season! (girls also carried white tulips…. I carried white & orange ones!)
