It’s been so fun to introduce y’all to some of the newest wedding dresses from our favorite designers over the past few weeks! We love peeking at their new collections, and figured y’all would love a first look at them, too.

Today we’re all about the beauties coming out of Maggie Sottero. Maggie’s dresses tend to be lightweight, feminine, and romantic, making them perfect for destination weddings! The materials and shapes are almost always easily packable, needing just a light steaming once you reach your destination to be aisle-ready. Which is great, because if you’re having a destination wedding, you want to make sure that you have as much time as possible to ski the slopes or lounge by the beach with the dear ones who’ve joined you!

A perfect example Reynold, the dress we’re sharing today. It features a removable jacket for a customized look; illusion off-the-shoulder sleeves for an elegant and current feel; and a unique illusion double-lace train.

Like Reynold, Maggie Sottero’s Avery Collection features a variety of dreamy silhouettes and shimmering embellishments. Scalloped hemlines and heirloom lace were two of our favorite details. Each was inspired by the magic of a timeless wedding and today’s romantic bride, which sounds just about perfect for us at Southern Weddings :)

Head here to see the full Spring 2017 Collection by Maggie Sottero, and here to find your closest store. I’d love to hear: are you having a destination wedding? And if so, where?

Weddings at Virginia Beach

by in Sponsor Love on

One of the very best things about the South, in my opinion, is that you can find practically any type of landscape you can imagine, from forests, to fields, to mountains, to beaches. We’re focusing on the latter today, because as the temperatures drop, the beach sure sounds lovely! For a bride dreaming of a destination wedding by the water, there’s no need to jet off to a foreign country–Virginia Beach offers beautiful beaches right here in the South that create a destination feel without the headache of long-distance travel. Allow me to tell you a little more about this special corner of the South!

Thanks to the moderate temperatures throughout the year, Virginia Beach brides aren’t restricted to summer months–outdoor weddings are just as common in the spring and fall. Once you’ve settled on Virginia Beach for your celebration, there are three different beaches to choose from: Chesapeake Bay Beach, Resort Beach, and Sandbridge Beach. While they all offer the opportunity for the ceremonies in the sand and ocean views that many beachy couples dream of, they also have a few distinct offerings that you can weigh depending on your personalities and the style of wedding you’re planning. For easy reference, here’s a little comparison chart we whipped up:

Along with the obvious oceanfront space, Virginia Beach is also home to a handful of distinct venues. Even if a beach wedding isn’t for you, I love that you can create the opportunity for your beloved guests to enjoy a vacation weekend, while still hosting a wedding that fits your style to a tee. The Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art, Church Point Manor Bed and Breakfast, and First Landing State Park are a few of my favorites–they’re all so different!

Have you ever been to Virginia Beach? What was your favorite thing about it? We’d love to hear!
