Here begins some detailing of our wedding as we lead up to the big day!

Bridesmaids: With ten beautiful women needing to be dressed in something light, airy, summery, and classic, I chose the J. Crew Sophia Short dress in silk tricotine. We got an amazing deal on the dresses because they were on final clearance. I was super nervous as we ordered them but they all look wonderful on each friend/sister. The color is Mediterranean Blue.

Groomsmen and Grant: The guys will be donning sweet black tuxedos each with a black cummerbund. Here comes the sass: Grant and I knew we wanted something original for the bow tie. Naturally, we talked with a friend at Southern Proper and thought we had picked out the perfect pattern and scored a great deal on all 12. This fell through.

Via new friends in Elizabethtown, we know own close to 40 bow ties through Vineyard Vines. Grant created a custom logo and they put it into print for us! We are really excited because the yellow in the tie and blue in the tie coordinate well with our wedding day color scheme.

Bridal Gown: Going to keep this one under wraps BUT I will share that I went to Bella Bridesmaid in January and already knew the dress design for me. I went with a LulaKate design, the fabric in a silk shantung and the dress is floor length. I'm also wearing my mother's veil!

Going Away Garb: This is potentially my new favorite aspect of our attire for the day! I recently received my new Hems & Hers dress, designed by Caroline (bridesmaid) with "fabric print selection assistance" by another one of my bridesmaids. I am so blessed with talented friends! The dress fits like a glove and Grant is going to love it! He will be wearing khaki pants, loafers, a navy suit jacket, and white oxford.

CUSTOM VV BOWTIES! So dreamy, I love it. I've always wanted to get married on the Vineyard I think. Is your wedding there or just honeymooning?

Our wedding will be held at Grant's home church in Cary. We are "honeymooning" in Edgartown :)
