Our Spring Wedding Highlights

Spring Wedding Highlights - April Wedding Recap - Sarah Camille's Scoop - SCsScoop.com

Our wedding was 20 days ago. Time is flying. We are settling back into reality (or trying to), and before my memory escapes me I want to share our spring wedding highlights. Will and I got married on April 28th in Middleburg, Virginia. It truly felt magical and dream-like.

Of course, there were days leading up to it when I was super stressed out and I wondered how it would come together. In the end, all the hard work and coordination of everyone involved paid off. I cannot thank enough everyone who helped me along the way or listened to me vent when I was stressed out about something. It still means so much and I appreciate it more than you know. The wedding planning process can have a lot of ups and downs, so having people support you through it is such a blessing.

First, here are a few pre-ceremony pictures.

Side note:  If you are in the throes of wedding planning, I hope these details give you some inspiration and confidence that it will all come together. I will share some advice in the coming weeks as well, but if you have any questions, feel free to drop a comment or reach out to me – seriously!

Also, I have mentioned certain vendors and products below because I truly loved working with them and their work. I did not have any obligation to mention anyone in any way. And to my vendors mentioned below – you all rock and exceeded our expectations!! We could not have asked for a better group of people to work with for our wedding.

For the ceremony, I wore Badgley Mischka (similar here) shoes I got off Poshmark. They were the last pair I could find online that were my size and had a block heel. But, right before our first dance I decided to put on a comfier and sturdier set of heels that were the same height. That was probably one of the best decisions I made that night because my feet didn’t hurt at all and they made it so easy to walk in the grass!

Now, here are some post-ceremony and reception photos.

My Favorite Wedding Detail of the Day

It is quite hard to choose, but perhaps my favorite detail of the day was my dress. As I mentioned above, the designer was Paloma Blanca, however, I was able to get the sleeves from the wedding dress of my grandmother and namesake added to my dress. I also wore the veil that my grandmother made for my mother’s wedding day, which has also been worn by my aunt and three cousins. My grandmother passed away when I was seven, so having these pieces integrated into my wedding day look made me feel extra special and connected to her.

Are you married or planning your own wedding? I would love to hear all the details! Are there certain, special parts or details of your wedding or a wedding you recently went to that you loved? Please share in the comments! And like I said earlier, if you have any wedding planning questions, feel free to ask. There is definitely a learning curve with it, and I wish any brides to be out there the best of luck.

Cheers!

Wedding Guest Outfit Ideas and Style Guide

Hello friends, and happy October!

Fall is my favorite season and it is also a popular time for weddings. Figuring out what to wear for different dress codes can be challenging anytime of year, and some of you may find it even more challenging as the weather gets cooler. I’m going to help you tackle your wedding guest woes with a style guide from The Black Tux and a breakdown of wedding guest dress ideas to wear for all the various levels of formality. Before I begin, if you are wondering what is appropriate to wear based on the time of the event or what it says on your invitation, check out the style guide below.

The Wedding Guest Style Guide - Plus a breakdown of what to wear for each occassion.

Wedding Guest Outfit Ideas

Now that you have an idea of what is acceptable to wear at the upcoming wedding you will attend, here is some inspiration for each type of dress. Listed from lowest to highest price, I picked out an affordable option (less than $75), updgrade option ($76-$150) and splurge option ($151+) so you can easily find something in your price range.

SEMIFORMAL

BEACH FORMAL

BLACK TIE OPTIONAL

 

BLACK TIE

WHITE TIE

I hope this guide and these outfit ideas help you figure out your “What to wear?!” dilemma, if you have an upcoming wedding to attend. Many of the dresses above can work for couple different levels of formality, like black tie optional and black tie. Investing in a dress that transcends different types of events is key. Personally, I think it is best to lean on the side of being slightly overdressed than under-dressed. If you can’t decide between a couple of options, pick the more formal one!

Rent the Runway can also be a great choice if you do not need another dress in your closet or you are attending a wedding that has a unique feel for which you know you’d never wear the dress you want to wear again.  If your date is having trouble finding appropriate attire, the Black Tux has lots of wedding suit and tuxedo options to choose from.  It’s basically like Rent the Runway for men!

Have you or has your partner ever used the Black Tux? I’d love to know how you liked it. I would love to know if you have any dress recommendations as well. If you have any clothing dilemma’s you are facing, I am happy to help you make a decision too. Just let me know!

Cheers,

Sarah Camille
