introducing Mrs. Fulford

i've been on hiatus getting married and honeymooned and back into the "normal world" (blissful sigh). it was all just perfectly fabulous!! i'll do some post-by-post replays (so i can re-live the experience!). but for now - i'll share this photo which sort of epitomizes the whole mood of our wedding: "retro chic".

bag of cuteness

dress? check. shoes? check. jewels? check. now i'm on the hunt for a pretty little evening bag. i don't want to spend too too much because it's not going to be a big part of the party....but i do want something special. i found this adorable little number at Advantage Bridal. i think it's just too precious!! seems like the perfect keeper of the gloss.

the "Fabulous" shoe

i tend to throw around the word "fabulous" a lot. it's how i describe my friends, my clothes and a sunny day. so imagine my utter and complete delight, when I, the self-proclaimed polka dot goddess, found a shoe dubbed "the Fabulous" for my wedding. it's a black & white wedding, you know. and i already had a really dreamy pair of shoes to wear (traditional white satin). but they didn't really scream "kate!!". these did. AND they are only $59. AND they are comfortable. AND they look marvelous with my dress!! i can't wait to wear these (note: i already have the black w/ white dots and they seem to look precious with everything!)

delicious table accents

don't think that you are limited to the linens on hand from your party rental company. there are so many options to deck out your tables to suit your style. i found some really spiffy fabrics at J. Caroline Creative. i'm using these for our groovy cocktail lounge (tables and bar overlay). they also have fabulous papers that could be used in a variety of ways! such fun!!

glamour ears

even though i've already assembled my wedding day jewels - i love to hunt for new ideas....and these would be gorgeous for anyone wearing a black dress (wedding day and otherwise!). Check out all the designs by Isaac Manevitz - pretty darn gorgeous!

artistic memories

i am D-lighted that my talented and adorable friend Sloan will be creating portraits for all our guests at the rehearsal dinner. She is nothing short of fabulous!! She can do individual portraits (or you and your sweetie) and she does events & soirees. We love that everyone at the RD will go home with a special & personal keepsake of our celebration. I think this would be a fabulous to do at the actual wedding as well (in lieu of a photo booth). We'd have here there too - but want her to be our guest!

fancy headgear

i just placed an order for these fabulous hair yum yums from Stacey Lapidus! i saw this photo a few months ago and used it as inspiration for my newest haircut!! and then when i was in LA for my recent buying trip - i was so happy to find a whole host of vintage-inspired, glamorous headbands and bangles. lots of pretty rhinestones and a rainbow of silk dupioni fabrics. i think they'd be fabulous for a bridesmaid ensemble!
