Hi ladies + gents! “Marrying” is a sub-column within Marissa’s usual Southern Style column where she translates the style of a beloved Southern movie, play, or book to weddings! Enjoy! — Emily

Beloved is quite right, Emily! And let me tell y’all, Sweet Home Alabama is right up there on my most beloved movie list. I could watch it over and over again and never get tired of Melanie saying” you’ve got a baby… in a bar!”

Speaking of the fab Ms. Melanie (Smooter) Carmichael, can we just start by talking about how stylish she is! From her one-shoulder LBD to her perfectly spunky bobbed haircut – this girl has some serious Southern style! Not to mention the giant sparkling rock she sports throughout the movie!

One of the best scenes (for us sparkle-lovers) is when Andrew proposes to Melanie inside of Tiffany’s. Oh, when those lights go on and all the salespeople put out their little black velvet square – ah, pure movie magic! And if you’re looking for more diamond inspiration, check out the newly engaged Emily’s post on engagement rings 101.

Since Melanie did not have a full court, I’m imagining what her girls would have worn. In my opinion, she would have outfitted her maids’ in sophisticated black frocks similar to her fab on-shoulder number she wore earlier in the movie. Bridesmaids in LBD’s are becoming more and more popular and I must admit I am a huge fan! This sleek and slimming b’maid option can be dressed up with formal accessories like pearls and updo’s or casualized with colorful heels and a short, flirty length. P.S. Can you spot the Miss Emily looking gorg in her black gown?

For her plantation wedding to Andrew, Melanie went right back to her Southern roots by opting for an all-white bouquet.This monochromatic look is pure flower goodness! It’s looks classic and sophisticated without being stuffy. Yes, please!

I’ll be the first to admit it – I love plantation weddings! There is just something so Southern and classic about tying the knot on the landing of so much tradition. Even though Melanie did not grow up on the Carmichael Plantation, she she couldn’t help but squirmed her way right onto their lawn. To be quite honest, I don’t blame her!

Weekly Round Up

by in Main on

Hello dear friends! As always, I’m happy to be wrapping up another week with y’all and reviewing all the splendid features that appeared on the blog since Monday. I’m even more excited that I get to do so from the pretty interiors of our newly painted office! Emily and Lara, with impeccable taste, picked a soft blue that’s like a breath of fresh air every time we walk in — well, once you get past the lingering paint fumes. But let’s move on to wedding things, because we presented a lot of goodies this week!

Emily provided us with her answer to an important etiquette question: Should non-wedding-guests be invited to the bridal shower? She came down firmly on one side, but would you do the same? Go to the original post and give us your input!

We have officially sold out of our third and latest issue, V3! We can’t wait to share V4 with y’all, so be on the lookout for behind the scenes posts on upcoming shoots. Until we drop the latest issue in September, we’re going to spend some time looking back on our favorite spreads from V3. If that’s not enough to hold you over, we still have some V2s left!

The photographers at J. Layne Photography were determined to get out of the usual rut that beach weddings fall into. They came up with a bright and happy sunrise shoot that’s so pretty it made me want to get up early every morning!

In the South, we are steeped with tradition. A huge part of what we love about Southern weddings is the story aspect behind the little details couples choose to include in their day. Lara already knows that if she and Ari had a vow renewal, their tables would be lined with dewberry jam! Tell us what your love story is and the special meaning behind the details you’re including in your wedding. A lucky commenter could win a ring bearer bowl from Paloma’s Nest!

Sierra was hard at work updating our Real Wedding Galleries. This week’s featured gallery was Shannon + Chris. We’re smitten with their preppy-chic soiree!

I’m head over heels with this week’s Real Weddings!

Katie + Charlie played up calm and cool in their Florida wedding — so much that I wanted to jump into the photos and celebrate with them! See it here and here.

Emily + Brian woke us up with pops of cobalt blue in their South Carolina wedding. We love their reception for including a game of corn hole! See it here and here.

Claire + Brian showed us the perfect way to make a wedding feel like a comfy dinner party. Their garden wedding was personal and authentic to the couple. See it here and here.

Brides in and around Dallas: Tiffany Gifford, the celebrity stylist who worked with Miranda Lambert for her wedding, will work with brides in Priscilla of Boston’s Dallas, Texas salon on June 25 and 26. She will help brides pick their gown and accessories as well as offer styling tips to look perfect on their wedding day. An appointment is necessary, so go to Priscilla of Boston’s site to schedule one!

A sweetheart of a photo before you leave:

See more from this fantastic and fun wedding on the Heart Explosions blog.

Happy weekending, y’all!
