Wedding Wednesday!



Okay, so before you start freaking out: NO. We are NOT engaged! But what girl doesn't have fun going to a bridal salon and getting all dressed up in pretty frilly dresses?! We were pretty bored Saturday and I had already been given the night off of work so we decided why not! This dress was beautiful. Absolutely stunning and gorgeous (and it comes in Ivory! Which I didn't know until AFTER the fact, so you best bet your bottom dollar I'll go back to try it on soon!). Well, it's not the most flattering fit in these pictures because it was 2 sizes too big. It seems they were out of my size and the size above, so I had to try this one on and man, those clothespins just will NOT stay! But I felt so lovely in such a gorgeous dress! Every single person stopped what they were doing to stare the entire time I was outside in it (thus making me a bit self conscious at the time!). They were probably a bit surprised to see such a heavily tattooed girl in a wedding dress (the entire salon was filled with [what seemed to be] very conservative moms and brides). Either way, I loved the back of this dress. It was just so pretty! 




We had plans to go to another bridal salon yesterday so I could blog about it today, but yesterday was just a really bad day. I woke up to a bad day and it just got worse and worse, so we just didn't bother. But we will check it out soon!

Trying on dresses made me realize that I can't wait to plan out the big day! It'll be a while away but still... a girl can dream!

The next batch of photos is from a wedding that my friend Amanda did! She shot it beautifully and you cannot deny how gorgeous the bride and her entire outfit is! From the dress, sweet necklace and dainty little flower at the bottom of her hair.. I just love it! The colors look great with that teal tile wall, too! You can see some more of Amanda's photography at her blog.











This next batch is a sweet elopement in Denver via RuffledBlog! I'm in love with those balloons! (It makes me yearn for Valentine's Day like no other!) I LOVE that their "reception" was a little picnic for the two of them! 



And while this may be a first for Wedding Wednesdays on Little Chief Honeybee, I just had to post this Bridal Shower because I don't think it could have been anymore "me" (and maybe I'm being a little selfish here... but I really loved it!) [Psst... note the use of my favorite typeface (and the one I use for my person logo!) in the mix down there!]


And now the Weekly Wedding Question! Are you planning on having a "typical" bachelorette party (or did you, if you're already hitched)? [By typical I guess I mean going out to bars with your ladies, clad in a short dress and 'bachelorette' sash. And in return, how do you feel about your guy going out for the typical bachelor party?] 

My answer: Mike and I thought/talked about this the other day and seeing as I don't drink alcohol at all and I've never "partied," I have absolutely no desire to have the typical bachelorette party. I don't want to go out to bars or clubs because I work in one and it's so far from my scene. Mike doesn't want a typical bachelor party because he doesn't want to go to a strip club or bar (and he doesn't really drink liquor). Plus, we had talked about Toby being his best man so I doubt a young'n could pull off something like that ;) [I hope you can read the tone of that silly little joke]. I guess I just never did that whole party thing in college and I have no desire for that to have anything to do with my wedding either. How about you?

  3. That dress is so pretty, and the wedding photos by your friend are amaaazing! I think I'd definitely like a "traditional" bachelorette party if I ever got married; it's just the culture here. But it would be several days before the wedding to elimiate hangovers!!

  5. you look absolutely lovely!
    my best friend is getting married next year, so she is on top of the wedding stuff.
    it gives me wedding fever, and you are not helping sweet lady! :]

    I keep meaning to message you on facebook about Savannah, I just have been really busy.

    will you be on this afternoon or tonight sometime?

  6. I think the ultimate bachelorette party would be an evening at the spa! I'm quite the champagne drinker so of course I'd enjoy a bottle...or 2. But I would much rather get pampered than go out & get tanked at some gross bar/club.

  8. Get you girlie!!! Would you go for the traditional white wedding or would you have something a little more vintage?

    Bachlorette party: We went for Pizza at a local italian restaurant then we went to the local pub for karaoke (but they had already finished for the night) because my one of my bridesmaids was under 18 and she would have missed out if we went clubbing and stuff like that - and thats not really my thing.

    Me and my uni friends went shopping and out for lunch and they made me wear a "Bride to Be" sash and tied a bride to be balloon to my bag lol.

  9. The back of that dress is to DIE for! I hope you try on more soon and let us see!!!

    And as for the party--I love the idea of having the bridal shower in the afternoon and at night having a nice dinner, and seeing a show (like wicked or phantom).My sister who is 13 is going to be my MOH, and I am not a huge partier either.

  10. you look super lovely in that dress!

    i didn't have the typical bachelorette party.
    my friends and i went to a little bed and breakfast inn and had a really beautiful dinner.
    it was lovely!
    and my husband didn't have a bachelor party, as it isn't really his thing. : )

    xo.

  11. You should be getting married RIGHT NOW haha you look looovely :) I was watching a show tonight on tv called 'dont tell the bride' and basically the groom is given like £15,000 to plan the whole wedding himself. Down to the tiniest detail! So you can imagine it becomes a bit of a riot at times and tonight I could have died when I saw the dress he had chosen for his bride :I There was a really pretty one like the one you have on, with beautiful detail and gorgeous ruffles in all the right places. and he was choosing between that and this huge disaster of a dress... but he didnt choose the nice one and I was totally screaming at the tv! :( the worst thing is, the bride loved it haha but she still looked beautiful :) thats true love for ya eh? True love that's gone a bit blind :p excuse the pun! xx

  13. I was thinking big announcement too!!

    I have never been to a bridal salon that let you take pictures in the dress (unless it's the one you're buying). You look adorable!! I went to a really ~ritzy~ salon when I went dress shopping and everyone stared at my tattoos too, but the only negative comments/looks came from my Grandma. Oh well.

    I want a spa day, or a trip somewhere ridiculously tacky like AC for the night with just my close friends...but I don't think that's what the girls are planning. My fiance's friends are planning a hang-over style night of chaos:/

  14. that dress is perfect on you! you have to go back for it when the time is right! :) and those weddings are so gorgeous, such great photography.

    the idea of a 'typical' bachelorette party kind of horrifies me. i'm not much of a drinker or party girl, so there's no reason i would have a party like that. It would probably just be me and my closest friends celebrating that next phase of my life by doing something relaxed and more personal. And i would hope that my future husband, whoever he may be, wouldn't want a traditional bachelor party!!

  15. Girl, you look gorgeous... as always. :)

    As for the bachelorette party... I'll probably just stay inside and watch movies, do facials and nails while we have girl talk and just have some wine at home. I'm kinda over the whole "bar scene" although I'm sure James will get dragged to the bar and to a strip club. Which is totally fine with me as long as he doesn't come home puking.

  21. Love the dress, and the wedding photos. I'm currently planning my own DIY wedding, and am a avid reader of Ruffled....

    Have you ever checked out 100 Layer Cake?

    Just curious--were you trying on dresses at David's Bridal? I bought my wedding dress there at a PA store. The interior just looks very familiar. :-) It's a beautiful dress by the way!

    Can't wait to read more--I love it!
