Introducing… My Best Friend’s Wedding Series!

I couldn’t be more excited to launch this new series – and introduce you all to Danielle, my best friend who’s tying the knot this September! As a nod to one of our all-time favorite movies that the two of us watched constantly during high school, the name of this series is appropriately, My Best Friend’s Wedding. Throughout the coming months, stay tuned for more details about Danielle’s wedding planning journey – and of course, the big day itself this Fall!

To kick things off, I have some photos from our bridesmaid dress shopping trip this past weekend – and a little Q&A with Danielle about her bridesmaid vision and shopping experience.

What was your vision for your bridesmaid’s dresses?
At first, I wasn’t really sure what I wanted for the bridesmaid dresses so I spent a lot of time looking around online and on Pinterest (what did people do before Pinterest?!?). As I was looking around, I realized I was always drawn to the pictures that had the bridesmaids in different styles of a dress in the same color. So I decided that I wanted to have the option to change the necklines for the dresses to best suit each bridesmaid. As for the color palette and material, I knew I wanted it to be soft, light, monochromatic and somewhat whimsical, so I based our search off that.

Did you change your mind once you saw your bridesmaids actually try on dresses?
As you can attest to, I am super indecisive! But surprisingly, this was a pretty easy decision. We tried on a few options, but after seeing you guys in the different styles, colors and fabrics, I pretty much knew which dress we would go with. And it was totally in line with my vision. We actually ended up picking the first dresses that I saw online!

The ladies in our lives come in all different shapes and sizes, with many different likes and dislikes. What advice would you give to brides going through the bridesmaid dress shopping experience?  
We all know what it feels like to be in a dress or outfit that you’re not comfortable in and I really wanted to make sure that everyone felt good about what they were wearing on our big day. Part of the reason that I went with the different neckline options is that not everyone feels comfortable in the same style. So my advice would be to pick a color and material that you like and try to find a dress that comes in different styles to suit all shapes and sizes. I’m fortunate enough to have 3 beautiful ladies in my wedding party so it was a very easy decision!

We won’t give away what dress you chose, but when will we see it? Tell me a little about your wedding – date, locale, style.
Keith and I are getting married on September 13, 2014 in his parent’s backyard in New Jersey. While we didn’t meet until college, we both grew up in New Jersey in neighboring towns. Since we’ve been together, we spend a lot of time at home in New Jersey with our families. After looking at a bunch of venues, we realized that the backyard was the perfect place for us to get married. We felt this option best fit who we are and how we envision spending our wedding night with all of our friends and family. So, we’re going to throw up a tent and have a big backyard party!
We got engaged in Italy and both love it there so we are pulling some inspiration from that. We’re certainly not having a theme to our wedding, but we’re going for an elegant, rustic, Italian feel. As I’m walking down the aisle, I’m going to imagine that we are in the garden in Castiglione d’Orcia where we got engaged!
So there you have it! Be sure to come back for more details from Danielle over the next few months. I, for one, already can’t wait for September!
