As you are reading this, I am likely in a hotel room with a bunch of ladies getting all Bride-ed up. Hopefully I have a glass of champagne in hand and I have given up on worrying about all the little details! After months and months of planning, not to mention at least 10 years or so of thinking about how my wedding day would turn out and who I would marry, it has arrived. Today I marry my best friend, who I met for the first time just about 7 years ago! Here is to the next 7 years, 7 after that, and onward til we are old and grey!
Because it is my wedding day I didn’t expect to have time to blog, sorry to tell you. So I enlisted the help of one of my favorite Twitter buddies and wedding blog pals, Nicole of Niche White. The relationships I have created on Twitter have been incredible and surely made this wedding process much more fun. I have been getting emails and tweets checking on my well being and telling me how excited they are for me. People I have never met! Nicole is incredibly talented with an eye for all things fabulous, very funny, and just as sweet as can be! I am so honored she agreed to guest post today and I LOVE what she prepared for you today. How did she know I have a lace obsession?! I have no idea… take it away Nicole!
Hi everyone! This is Nicole from Niche White Bridal Loft and I am thrilled to fill in for Alicia today. She had something important to do but I can’t remember…wait…..it might’ve been…oh yeah, SHE’S GETTING MARRIED!!! I guess that’s a good enough excuse to need a guest-poster.
I thought I would bring my traditional “Friday Pretties” over to the Charity Wedding today but then I got distracted – it happens WAY more than I’d like to admit! I kept coming across gorgeous lace details in weddings and, while I know it’s one of the popular 2010 trends, was amazed at just how beautifully it worked – whether with the flowers, on the cake, as a candle accent, or simply used as a table runner. Take a look!
If you thought this lace looked a little “feminine”, don’t give up on me! How about some black lace details?
And in true Alicia-style, I’m including a lace-WTF-detail:
A lace wrapped tree.
Just so we’re clear – do not do this.
Nicole sent me this picture after she had already sent me the full post and told me it was up to me whether I added it to the post! Obviously, it had to be added.
Is anyone out there incorporating lace into their wedding? I’m pretty sure Alicia is not, but I’m looking forward to seeing pictures of her fall-themed, under-the-stars wedding ASAP! *hint hint, nudge nudge*
I’ve had a blast with you Charity Wedding readers and I hope you will join me in the comments section to wish Alicia and Kyle all the best as they begin their marriage!
