Let me start by saying that I spent last Saturday night in watching this movie and bawling my face off! There is just something so incredibly romantic about Allie and Noah’s love story that just causes me to immediately reach for my hankie!
In my humble opinion, The Notebook is one of the best Southern romance movies of our generation (yep, I just went there!). Style-wise, well don’t even get me started. Allie is sophisticated, yet fun and her accessories are so perfectly classic Southern I would die to raid this prop closet! And Noah… that driving cap, the shaggy mop, the sweet Southern drawl … need I say more?

Since there wasn’t actually a wedding shown in The Notebook, we’ve decided to pull a few of our favorite key elements to discuss. First up, the blusher veil. If you remember that fateful scene where Allie is trying on the gorgeous wedding dress she plans to wear to marry dear, sweet Lon you’ll notice her great long cathedral length veil and blusher. We’re sure that she wore a similar classic style to her wedding to Noah!

In the movie, Noah was very rarely seen without his driving cap. These caps, also known as the flat cap, were originally made of wool or tweed and worn for warmth, but in the 1920’s this hat became a fashionable “street” look for working class young men. I think this adorable little guy below looks more sweet than street in his cap and bow tie combo!

I’m a huge fan of our next item – I think that classic white gloves never go out of style! I think you’d agree with me that Allie would have worn lovely pair to her wedding to Noah. These stylish brides below are proof that white gloves aren’t just for Deb Balls anymore.

Last, but most certainly not least we have the rowboat scene! Who could forget this scene? Romantic, relaxing and just plain gorgeous. Feast your eyes on these beauties below, then grab your beau and make plans to enjoy this sweet past time under some giant gorgeous oak trees and sunshine (or rain)!
