Wedding Wednesday: Over the Top Glam

Wedding Wednesday (1)

Welcome to my very first Wedding Wednesday!! This is where we bat around fun wedding ideas, themes, drool over dresses, and even rings. So let’s get this party started!

In each of my stories, there’s going to be a wedding. I can’t help it. I just can’t! I blame Pinterest. For real.

So, I’m all about the glam in my little dream world. But that’s not practical. Or cheap. So for our first Wedding Wednesday, I thought about keeping it simple.

I know. I laughed hard at that thought, too.

Glam it is!

Because, in my mind, the wedding revolves around the dress, let’s start there!

The dress:

Um…I drool.

The ring:

Because a dress that royal neeeeeeeds a ring this royal.

Uh, yes. That is a cake. Shocked me too! It’s gorgeous.

And finally, the flowers:

Believe it or not, I had the hardest time choosing flowers! There are so many beautiful bouquets out there, and I was tempted to go with a floral and jeweled bouquet, but with all the other over-the-top glamour, I thought a straight floral cascading bouquet would be elegant.

I admit that this wedding would be a little too much for my personal tastes, but I couldn’t help going glam. I’m a sucker for fairy tales, and this reminds me so much of a fairy tale wedding. I hope you enjoyed!

    1. LOL!! Isn’t that cake jaw-dropping?!?! I tell you, the woman who created that is a genius. Genius!! And yeah, I *totally* understand the warring sides. I live in a fairy tale world that often collides with reality. *sigh* It stinks. Hence, Wedding Wednesdays. LOL!!!

      1. I want a beach wedding so I don’t think that I would ever choose that dress, but in my imagination, that’s similar to what I would WANT to be wearing!

      2. Haha! It’s similar to what I’d want to be wearing, too. I almost went with a beach wedding theme for today. But I couldn’t resist the glam. 😉 Maybe next Wedding Wednesday, two weeks from now! 😉
