Wonderful Wednesday: Wedding Season

For most people the days right around the holidays mean eating good food, being with the ones they love and giving and getting great gifts. But for a select few who, together, make up a whole bunch this time of year, the days leading up to Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years are filled with a little extra excitement and a whole lot more anxiety.

Ladies in long term relationships – brace yourselves. Engagement season has officially begun.

So in the spirit of this magical time of year, and also because I’d like to indulge in my own matrimonial fantasies, this Wonderful Wednesday is dedicated to all things wedding! Budget wedding at that!

Lace and Pleats Dress: $29.80

This is the most inexpensive alternative wedding dress I have ever come across.

With the sweet pleats and lace top, it’s perfect for a bride on a serious budget who is having a less than formal affair. If the black ribbon bothers you, snip it off and cover it up with a satin one of your color choice.

Suedette Peeptoe Slingbacks: $24.80

Blinged out black flats for the reception and something blue in a sky high heel for the ceremony. If the wood grain on those sling backs bothers you, cover that part with some clear glue and cost the area in gold leaf or your choice of glitter. You could also paint over it with a high shine lacquer.
