twobirds bridesmaid giveway

One dress, over 15 ways to wrap! It’s never easy to find the perfect bridesmaid dresses, and Ariane from twobirds Bridesmaid felt exactly the same way. Seeking out a better alternative to spending money on bridesmaid dresses that stayed in the closet, in planning her own wedding founder Ariane wanted to create a versatile solution for her best friends. Her Australian partner Vanessa echoes the sentiment, and knew that the Australian market was going to love the concept, and hence, teamed up with the New Yorker to bring us twobirds. Ariane says she “worked with a pattern maker, got some fabric, and was inspired by the Norma Kamali infinity dress. The positive response I got from my wedding inspired me to quit… Read More →

ASOS: Wedding Accessories Guide

Asos Guest Post

I love a guest post at Something Borrowed, so was super excited that ASOS Australia wanted to give their tips on wedding accessories for this season! With wedding season fast approaching, at ASOS we have decided to put together a guide that points brides in a good direction when it comes to wedding accessories. This is considered mission impossible for many brides, whether to go simple and safe, or make a statement and take a risk. The most important rule to abide by is choose accessories that work harmoniously with the dress. Think elegant and chic; less is more applies for the best wedding look no matter what the circumstances. Earrings and Necklace Your earrings and necklace very much play… Read More →

Neutral Bridesmaid Dresses

Neutral bridesmaid feature

Pinterest certainly helps you find some beautiful content sometimes… and I recently came across this beautiful gaggle of women and the most perfectly stunning barn wedding from last year via Wedding Chicks. Does 4 women constitute a “gaggle”? I’m sticking to it… I loved the overall styling of this wedding once I saw the feature! But what really drew me in was the beautiful simplicity of the bride and her ‘maids look. It’s such a fresh spin on vintage, and captured so wonderfully via Debra Eby, you felt a connection as you move through these photographs. Beautifully ensembled neutral bridesmaid dresses! Bridesmaid dresses were via Etsy, designer River of Romansk. Full wedding feature at Wedding Chicks. Featured photo courtesy of… Read More →

Champagne mismatched bridesmaid dresses….yes please!

Champagne Mismatched Bridesmaid Dresses

What a gorgeous group of ladies! I particularly love this mismatched ensemble that keep in theme with the bride’s ivory. The unique champagne theme dresses are perfectly matched with their own custom bouquet – fabulous! I just love the individuality of each dress, teamed with it’s own accessories and flowers, it brings such a uniqueness to the group but manages to thread them all together. This is certainly one the most beautiful bridal parties I’ve seen with such attention to detail. For a feature of the full wedding, check out Kristen Gardner’s blog. Kristen certainly captured Kathleen & Jon’s day impeccably, what a way to reflect on your wedding!

Floral bridesmaid dresses

I love the idea of doing a pattern for a bridesmaid dress, and while I was watching the latest episodes of Revenge tonight, Charlotte’s dress popped out at me! I must say, the first three episodes of Revenge have certainly been showcasing some beautiful dresses! Looking forward to many more inspirational dresses! Image courtesy of Celebrity Style Guide This dress is by Dolce & Gabbana and such a gorgeous, summery chiffon dress. I think this would be a perfect addition to a summer wedding party. Would you do floral for your bridesmaids?

Striped bridesmaid dresses

I came across this wedding after finding this photo on Pinterest and falling in love with the pink and white striped bridesmaid outfits! I loved that they weren’t actually dresses but done beautifully with the golden neutral tshirt style to complete the outfit and match the bride. After trying to find the photographer of this image to see more photos of the gorgeous bridesmaid dresses, I came across their story. Emi & Chase have a dedicated site that tells the stories of their lives together, including their beautiful wedding photos! But I’m here to focus on the bridesmaid dresses, because I was instantly drawn to how different these ensembles were and loved the touch of pink! Highly recommend checking out… Read More →
