Southern Living Weddings

I was excited to receive an e-mail from Sarah at Southern Living magazine asking if I would like to receive a free copy of the new Southern Living Weddings issue to do a review for y'all. Of course I said yes!!!

The cover features a cake inspired by a wedding dress with ruffles that look like waves...Pearl Perfection!

The inside is packed with 120 pages of bridal inspiration...Southern style.

Whether you are planning a traditional, grand affair, or a hip, original event, Southern Living shares ways to carry your personal style for your wedding from the invitations to your honeymoon.

There are 25 real weddings featured with celebrations from around the South. You can get ideas for flowers, decorations, and fashion from these real-life brides and grooms...from the favorite local foods served to time-honored traditions.
I loved the section on Wedding Day Style...'Fashion for the Groom'...made by Southern hands!

And 'Fashion for the Bride'...I spy a darling Annabelle Laroque dupioni silk dress!
Chic and classic Southern bouquet ideas...created by Dallas floral designer Haile Wossen of Athos.
Of course, you simply must serve a 'Signature Beverage' at your reception and Mint Julep Sweet Tea in a mason jar is a perfect choice for the Southern bride!
Learn all about the Victorian tradition embraced by Southern brides...The wedding with silver cake charms.

This is just one of the gorgeous cake ideas...designed to look like the skirt of a wedding gown. Lord have mercy, this cake looks too pretty to cut!
Southern Living recommends luxe resorts, the perfect setting for a blissful vacation, including many Southern faves.

What to pack for your honeymoon? I spy a Lilly shift and cute KEP enamel bangles!
