Monthly Archives: March 2011

February was another stunning month for real weddings at SW, and we’ve rounded up our favorite bits and pieces to share with you today!

This month’s guest editor is Sierra, one of our intrepid interns. She’s responsible for all of the amazing graphics you see on the blog, and for some great picks this month!

FAVORITE WEDDING DRESS: Score one for budget brides! Alison’s David’s Bridal dress was my pick for the month (here + here). Katharine fell for Christine’s Lace Blossom number (here + here), while Sierra adored Tara’s Romona Keveza (and the edits Tara made to it!).

FAVORITE BRIDESMAID DRESS: Navy ruled again this month, as Sierra and I chose Katie + Matt’s Monique Lhuillier bridesmaid dresses (here + here) and Katharine chose Alison and Manny’s, available from Dillard’s! (More here + here.)

FAVORITE FEMALE ACCESSORY: Katharine loved Amanda’s bridesmaid clutches so much she organized a giveaway featuring them! They were obviously her pick (here). Sierra loved Alison’s chunky pearl necklace just like our readers (here)! And I chose Tara’s gorgeous lace veil (here).

FAVORITE MENSWEAR: Just like Sierra couldn’t get enough of Katie + Matt’s bridesmaid fashion, she was crushing on the groom’s + groomsmen’s looks, too! (More here.) My pick was EASY: hands-down the dress blues from Tara + Chris’ wedding (here + here). Katharine says her choice was easy, too — the too-cute ring bearers from Shannon + Chris’ wedding (here + here)!

FAVORITE DETAIL: Too many good ones to choose from this month! Katharine settled on Katie’s short hair (here + here), while I chose Tara + Chris’s needlepoint ring pillow (here). Sierra went for Christine + Iaan’s bunting (an excellent pick, I might add!). (More here + here!)

FAVORITE BOUQUET: White peonies will get a girl every time, which is why Christine’s bouquet was my pick (here). Sierra chose Tara’s, my other favorite (here), while Katharine went for Michelle’s bridesmaid blooms (here).

FAVORITE SWEET: Surprise, surprise: all three of us chose a treat from Christine + Iaan’s sugarific wedding! Sierra loved the mini milkshakes, while I chose the polka dot cake, and Katharine, the ice cream cones. Sweet! More here.

FAVORITE PHOTO: January set the bar high for poignant portraits, but February did not disappoint. My favorite turned out to be Chase Kuhn’s shot from Amanda + Jared’s wedding (here). Katharine, who loves her father a LOT, chose the photo of Michelle and her father dancing (here). Sierra chose Julie Lim’s ice cream kiss photo from Christine + Iaan’s wedding (here).

FAVORITE WEDDING OVERALL: It was close, but Sierra + I eventually chose Christine + Iaan’s wedding as our favorite, while Katharine went for Michelle + King’s (it WAS in Virginia, after all!).

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

    I was wondering are those marshmallow ice cream cones. They are adorable, but look too clean to be the good stuff. I want to steal the idea for my candy buffet.

      Hi Adrienne! Christine would have to chime in to give us the real scoop (har har), but my hunch is that the ice cream cones are actually plastic! If you’d like to do something similar for your candy buffet, I’d suggest making cupcake cones — I’m sure you can find a recipe online, but you basically bake the cake batter in an ice cream cone, and then use the frosting for the “ice cream” on top! Best of luck!

    I love love love Alison’s David’s Bridal Dress too! Do you know what style it is?

      Hi Laura! I’m not exactly sure, but my hunch is it’s this one: Maybe she removed the bow? Best of luck with your search!
