Mood Board Monday

I’m really loving today’s mood board — It’s just so pretty! Do you agree? Since we’re in the heart of summer, this coral color palette is right in season and really makes for a lovely wedding color. Whether it’s in your invitations, like this watercolored invitation suite — or in your bridesmaid’s dresses, like this perfect print by Amsale — or for your bridesmaid’s robes, like these from my favorite robe shop, Love Ophelia (remember this post?!) — coral is a great summer wedding color.

What are your other favorite summer wedding colors?

Getting-Ready Robes {on a budget}

I absolutely love the trend of brides and bridesmaids in matching robes while getting ready for the wedding. It makes for some adorable photographs – and the robes themselves make great gifts for your ‘maids! But these pretty little things can cost a pretty penny – especially when you have a large bridal party.

A reader – and long-time friend – asked me for some suggestions on robes for her bridal party. Because even though she adores Love Ophelia, she also has eight ‘maids – and those beauties add up fast! So I did a little digging around and came up with some other pretty fabulous options.

Memento Monogrammed Bridesmaid Robes

These monogrammed robes are by the adorable shop, Memento. And when you need five or more, they’re only $33 each! They come in a bunch of different colors and have a few different monogram options. They also carry white oversized shirts, which is another cute look too!

You’ll never guess where these are from. Only everyone’s most favorite store ever… Target. Yup. And they’re on sale for $17.59. You better hurry before these things sell out!

And just because they’re too darn cute not to share, crowd-favorite Plum Pretty Sugar is now making rompers. Take a peak for yourself here. 

Getting ready…

One of the things I was really anticipating on our wedding day didn’t involve my husband at all (sorry babe!) – But rather all my girls. Don’t get me wrong, I couldn’t wait for that moment of being announced husband and wife – and I was beyond excited to be dancing together surrounded by all our family and friends, but I was also looking forward to a quiet morning at my mom’s house with my favorite women.

Other than my nerves, the morning really was quite calm, surreal even. It was spa-like, complete with pitchers of lemon water. When else do you get to have your hair and makeup done, while laughing (and crying) with your mom and sisters right next to you? We had some special moments and I made sure to take it all in.

I also made sure that we looked the part. I bought my ‘maids incredibly soft matching robes from Love Ophelia, which of course coordinated with the color scheme of the day. They come in an array of pretty colors and are edged with lace – I went with Coco to compliment the grey and blush colors found throughout the day.
