” The Best Wedding Ever ” – Kamani and Jim’s Wondeful Real Wedding

MART9000

Let’s get to know this pretty wedding.

MART8733MART8745MART8816MART8717 MART8862MART8888 MART8934

The Ceremony
Our ceremony was officiated by a local Scottish pastor dressed in authentic Scottish kilt attire.  It took place on the terrace of a French chateau turned winery and is inspiration to Coco Chanel’s renowned logo.  Perched atop a French mountainside, our 50 guests had sweeping views of the French Riviera.  Guests who traveled from all over the US and UK were spoiled to a weeklong schedule of events that included coastal day trips to Monaco in a champagne laced limo bus and Champagne brunch in a private garden in the famous Villa de Ephrussi de Rothschild.  The event has since been dubbed by our guests as “The Best Wedding Ever”.

The Reception
Our garden cocktail reception featured a live cooking show of foie gras and fresh sushi, paired with local French Rose champagne and a buffet of French cheeses.  Our guests toured the wine cellars and vineyards while being served hors d’oeuvres and overlooking the pink & gold sunset over the Mediterranean Sea.  Our dinner reception in the Salon Antoine Mari was fitting of the ‘Marie Antoinette’ vintage theme and featured local Nicoise infused aperitifs and cuisine.  The vineyard’s recent production of Chateau de Cremat red, white and rose wines decorated the candlelit tables.  The lavender laced wedding cake and French pastries complimented the entire French Riviera wedding experience where I danced in my red bottoms until 3am.

Kamani’s Wedding Dress Search
I traveled to Washington DC with my bridesmaid to attend a trunk show for Hayley Paige.  I tried on 6 different designs and although they were beautiful and within my budget, it just didn’t feel perfect.  Then I made an appointment for a local bridal store in Fort Lauderdale where I tried on 3 Sophia Tolli dresses and was very keen on 1 particular design but I was stuck on Hayley Paige.  So I made another appointment for another bridal store in Boca Raton and tried on 3 more Hayley Paige designs, not completely pleased with any.  There happened to be a rose champagne color dress featured on mannequin that my bridesmaids and I complimented every time we walked past, but it was not the whimsical look I was going for.  It was more of a ball gown and my maid of honor reminded me that I was getting married in a French castle so why shouldn’t I look like a princess.  So I tried on the Romona Keveza Spring 2016 design it felt so much lighter and fit perfectly.  When I came out of the fitting room, it brought my guests to tears and I looked in the mirror and knew at the moment, I found THE dress!  I didn’t choose the dress.  It chose me!  It was waiting for me the whole time and it absolutely made me feel like royalty.

Why She’s Selling Her Wedding Gown
I looked for a used wedding dress for this design and because it’s from her Spring 2016 collection, I couldn’t find any.  I know someone looking to feel like a skinny princess on her wedding day will appreciate a newly released design that was well altered and enjoyed!  (That and we need to pay off a huge wedding & honeymoon debt!)

These  married couple are planning their wedding celebration.

And what a celebration it was!  Their grand event was held at castle like venue befitting their royal theme.

The Reception
It was a formal event with a royal theme, as the venue looked like a gothic castle. There were lots of gold and rustic feels. The wedding was almost entirely DIY and the reception including traditional dancing, sword cutting the cake, farewell wave from balcony and a sparkler exit.

Hind’s Wedding Dress Search
I tried on about 10 dresses before I put on my final dress, Which I chose.  I chose my dress because it was the closest dress to what I had originally envisioned. It was not pure white, it was a dramatic A-line/Ball gown, and had gorgeous detailing. All the other  dresses, despite being cheaper than my dress, were all missing at least one of the things I had envisioned. I fell in love with my dress as soon as I put it on.

Why She’s Selling Her Wedding Dress
I will never wear my wedding dress again. It is amazing and every time I look at it again it takes my breath away. But I will never wear it again. And I spent a lot of money on it. I would like to get some return and let someone else feel and look beautiful as well.

The Ceremony


We got married on the Lommel Lawn at Calistoga Ranch. The lawn overlooks their beautiful lake and it is nestled between lush rolling hills. The backdrop couldn’t have been any more stunning. We got married in February so we were worried about rain but we really lucked out. The clouds were moody grey and puffy so it was great for the photos. As we were saying our vows the clouds broke and rays of light shone down on us. It was such a transcendental moment.

The Reception

The reception took place in Calistoga Ranch’s wine cave. I wanted our reception to feel intimate and romantic with tons of candles. The cave was perfect-it was glowing. We had two long kings’ tables with candles and perfectly overgrown flowers lining the tables. We had vines cascading from the large iron chandeliers and olive sprigs at each setting. I wanted to make it feel as if you were in the South of France having a lovely dinner party.

Anne’s Wedding Dress Search

I probably tried on about 30-45 dresses.  I was very specific about what I wanted. It needed to be timeless, romantic, and look as beautiful in person as it did in photos. When I saw my dress for the first time I saw it online and I said “that’s my dress!” I knew it from the instant I saw it. Once I tried it on it was more than what I had imagined. My dress has 4 layers which gives it such incredible depth. There are hand sewn pearls and sequins that give it the drama and romanticism that I wanted. It was the dress of my dreams.

It would make me sad to keep such a beautiful dress tucked away in my closet. I would love to give another bride the opportunity to wear this dress and make her feel as special as I did on my day. This dress was so special to me and I hope it finds a wonderful bride!

As soon as I saw it, I knew it was the one! I didn’t want white. I was looking for champagne and found this dress which was such a gorgeous color against my skin tone., I also wanted it to look different and unique, with  a bit of sparkle but not too much, sweetheart strapless neck and trumpet style not mermaid with a full bottom skirt.

I want another bride to feel the same way as I did! The color is so unique and it’s beautiful, elegant and a little sexy all at the same time.

Karen Willis Holmes Real Wedding From Nick Ray Photography – Louise + Huw

Karen Willis Holmes | Real Wedding

 Their wedding day was a beautiful sunny and filled with joy and warmth.  And Louise’s last minute choice of a Karen Willis Holmes wedding dress fit Piaget Replica
the event and her personal style perfectly.  First tempted to host a beach wedding in Sydney where they live, Louise and Huw decided instead to host a proper English wedding in their native UK to celebrate with all of their family and friends.

The Ceremony
The ceremony was held in St Andrews church in my parents parish in Meonstoke. Father Tony gave the ceremony, he was new to the parish and so our wedding was his first in the area so think he was as nervous as we were which helped calm my nerves one I reached the alter. He gave a really beautiful service. We also had Huw’s sisters and a couple of friends singing the welsh song ‘Calon lan’ which nearly had the whole congregation in tears!

The Reception
Following the church we arrived back at Hill Place which we had hired for the weekend. A beautiful grade II listed Georgian country villa located near the village of Swanmore in Hampshire. It’s a private home you can hire for the weekend with 5 bedrooms for use to put up guests. It is set in beautiful grounds with views across to the Isle of wight.

Louise’s Wedding Dress Search
I had really struggled finding something that suited my style. I knew I like the idea of a skirt and top and something quite simple but found nothing I was completely happy with.  I started getting a bespoke one made by a dressmaker but about 3 weeks before the wedding realised the dress wasn’t turning out the way I wanted so in panic I make appointments at bridal shops in my lunch breaks from work to try and find something I felt good about. I had been to KWH before and tried a few but thought I’d see if there was any I’d missed. First one I tried was the Mabel and fell in love with it straight away! It looked so simple on the hanger but one on I knew it was just for me. I ordered it straight away and somehow they had it in stock and were able to alter it slightly for me in just over a week!

Vera Wang White Real Wedding From Emily Gualdoni Photography

Vera Wang White | Real Wedding

What strikes us most is the story of the dress.  Erin bought a dress but knew deep down, that it wasn’t  “the one.”  So she made a long distance drive to see a second dress, and instantly knew it was hers.  She wore it, looked and felt amazing, and is now selling it for another bride to love too.  How completely perfect is that? There’s a lot to like about this charming Chicago wedding.

Erin’s Wedding Dress Search
I probably tried on 15 dresses over the course of finding mine.  I originally bought one but just knew right after that it was not it.  After doing a lot more research online, I couldn’t stop looking at this one.  It was more dress than I ever thought I’d want, but something about it just had me, and I knew that I had to find it.  So, I called around and found out the only two left in my size were in New York and Indiana.  So, the next day I loaded up my dogs (so I’d have company) and made the four-hour Saturday road-trip to Indiana to see it.  It was love at first sight, and thankfully, since I bought it from the same location as the original, they were able to exchange the order.  I took home the floor sample that day and never looked back.

Stunning, sensuous, enthralling, captivating, powerful….it’s hard to give just three.  This dress made me feel the best I think I’ve ever felt.  I wish I could wear it regularly! :)

Why She’s Selling Her Wedding Gown
I originally looked on PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com for my dress knowing I wanted something beautiful without paying too much for something I was only going to be wearing a few hours.  So, when I did end up finding mine in a retail location, I knew that someday I would want someone else to be able to enjoy the dress as much as I had without having to worry about the extra cost.  I’m not going to lie, I love this dress so much that it is actually a little tough to sell it, but if I know another bride will have the most amazing day of her life in it, that makes passing it along very worthwhile.

Christal’s Wedding Dress Search
I tried on 12 different dresses and knew that I wanted a mermaid style dress. The Haley Paige dress was the 2nd dress I tried on and every dress after just didn’t compare.

Christal and Tony’s summer wedding was held at the elegant Scottish Rite Temple over looking Lake Merritt in Oakland.  And Christal’s Hayley Paige 6203 was the absolute  perfect gown choice.  With it’s organza-ruffled mermaid skirt and sheer corset back with crystals, the dress was both dramatic and gorgeous.

Mr & Mrs Guthie Sneak Peeks 096

It’s full of understated elegance and beautiful detail (like amazing florals and a perfectly charming wedding cake).  But what really catches our eye is the couple’s absolute joy.  It radiates in every photo and makes us smile every time we take a look. We adore this California wedding!

The Ceremony
Our ceremony took place under a grove of Sycamore trees just outside of the mansion. Our 5 groomsmen wore black tuxedos with gold accents, and the 5 bridesmaids each chose their own unique long gown in the palette of gold and blush. The groom wore a dark navy tuxedo.  The ceremony featured a beautiful piano and cello recording of “A Thousand Years” by the Piano Guys, and the bride walked out to a violin quartet of “Pachebel’s Canon”. A family friend and minister performed the ceremony.The overall palette of the ceremony was blush, gold and ivory with black accents, and the florals, bouquets, and programs reflected these themes.

The Reception
The reception took place in the formal dining room of the Victorian, which extended onto a large porch covered in white drapes and white lights. Guests enjoyed steak, fresh salmon and agnolotti, followed by a dessert of vanilla cake with coconut frosting. The bride and groom cut the custom-designed cake under a sycamore tree draped with lights, toasted champagne, and then headed up with their guests up the stairs to dance the night away!

I tried on about 7 or 8 dresses. It was my very first day trying on dresses, and I had only planned to go to look at different shapes. Initially, I had envisioned myself in a more traditional A-line, but the bridal consultant pulled this gorgeous Carolina Herrera fit-and-flare style. As soon as I put it on I knew it was the one – it was incredibly flattering, giving me a defined waistline and adding all the feminine detail of the lace and tulle. I loved it! I decided that minute that it was time to stop looking and called my mom to tell her the news. She told me if I love it, go for it – so I did!

I loved the dress and the style and can’t wait for someone else to enjoy a designer dress at a lower cost. Also, both my mother and I each have our own unique tastes and big personalities – I can only imagine that my future daughter will one day be similar and want to pick her own dress!

Galia Lahav’s Madison  exudes drama and sensuality and is perfect for a black tie wedding.

Jenna’s Dress Search
I tried on approximately 30+ dresses at 4 different shops. I chose the one I chose because it had several elements that I loved: an open back, a flattering silhouette, and more!

Why She’s Selling Her Galia Lahav Madison
I’m selling my wedding dress mainly because I live in Manhattan and I am learning how I need to let things go and not hold on to things.  It is so beautiful but it would be even more beautiful if it were to be worn again and not sit in a box!  I won’t wear it again.
