Destination Elopement

Are you planning a destination elopement? Not really sure what you should wear?  This Friday Fashion segment will discuss an amazing couple and what they wore.

This beautiful, model-like couple are my sister and her new husband.  They eloped at Viansa Winery last week under stunning blue skies.  The location is picture perfect.  What a great idea to use a gorgeous location as your wedding backdrop.  Check out Viansa Winery's Facebook page here.

I'd also like to give a big shout out to Photography by Jen Philips for such stunning photos.  You can see her work here.

This dress is by Adrianna Papell at Nordstrom's (here is the link).  Nordstrom's didn't have the ivory version in the store.  They did have this dress in black, she was able to try it on, and then order online.  A ready-made dress is key for an elopement.  Most designer wedding gowns can easily take 4-6 months to be made.

Didn't you just die when you saw her shoes?  They are a wonderful pop of color and an easy way to make your wedding attire personal.  The shoes are the Lulu Townsend Valentine Pump in fuchsia at DSW (here is the link).
She picked up the earrings in a cute little boutique in Las Vegas a few years ago.  They are simple chandelier drop earrings that can be found in any local jewelry store. Here is a similar style.

 The handsome groom went with a gray slim fitting suit.  This suit can be purchased at any high end clothing store.  I found a great option at Nordstrom's.


As for the shirt, the groom is wearing the Ludlow spread-collar end-on-end shirt in frosted aqua at J.Crew.  

 Both the groom's necktie and socks are navy with pink polka dots to coordinate with the bride's pop of color.  The tie is from J.Crew.  While the socks are from Express.


If you are planning a modern elopement remember you don't have to keep it simple, just make it your own.  Also don't forget go to a department store and ask if any of the dresses they carry come in white.
