Sensational City Soirée - Loverly Set the Scene Challenge

Saturday, August 23, 2014

Since getting hitched myself about a year and a half ago, I have been absolutely enamored with weddings. After planning my own and watching others close to me take that walk down the aisle to wedded bliss, I've noticed how each wedding has been so drastically different, from an urban event in a lavish building downtown, to a rustic ceremony in a barn decorated with vintage couches. Each event exuded each bride's taste and personality, from the decorations, to their dress, down to their accessories and shoes.

That's why when I was asked to participate in the Loverly Set the Scene challenge, I was more than ecstatic at the chance to plan a wedding all over again! I was given a choice of three venues: city wedding, beachside nuptials or a rustic style wedding. Then I styled the bride based on my taste with the entire site's shop at my disposal: wedding dress (of course!), shoes, accessories, you name it! And let me tell you, this was no small task. I was overwhelmed and awe struck at all the choices from their shop! My goodness, where was this site when I was planning my own nuptials? 

The modern and classic feel of the urban wedding struck a chord with me, mainly since it reminds me of my favorite city, Chicago.

Sensational City Soiree

The style of this city wedding is simple, classic, elegant, yet modern. This allows the bride to make bold fashion statement. And that is exactly what this Jenny Packham dress is: a statement. The dress oozes romanticism and elegance, catching everyone's eye as she mingles with guests on the rooftop or has her first dance with her new husband. The slinky draping would make any bride feel sexy and beckons that 1920s Gatsby glamour, perfect for a city-style wedding. I completed the look with jewels on jewels on jewels to catch the light of the soft candles adorning the reception. The strappy sandals add to the delicacy of the dress. And they're Christian Louboutins. Need I say more? The head piece completes the Gatsby feel of the dress, and the clutch and bracelet tie the rest of the look together.
