ornate gold necklace

We’re all about accessorizing, layers of tulle, textures, ruffles, lace, and boleros. And so is Beth Chapman of The White Dress by the Shore. She styled this shoot using a few of her favorite blush, nude, and taupe dresses, and mixed them with an oversized bouquet (it really is pretty amazing, you’ll see) and antique elements from the historic home and garden, The Gardens at 222 in Ledyard Connecticut.

We’d kind of die if one of you walked down the aisle with an oversized bouquet like this. Amazing!

From Beth: Brides should not be afraid to add personality into their wedding wardrobe. If a bride is afraid to take too much of a risk, or she needs to appease her mother (hey, it happens), I recommend selecting a more traditional gown or accessories for the ceremony. Then, bring in more personalized elements for the reception. Switch out your jewelry, add a fun sash to the gown or change into a party frock. These are just a few ways to make a statement and to allow your personal style to shine through!

  26. Alternative wedding gowns is where it’s at. Many dress shops sell white gowns, whether intentionally made for weddings or not, simply because white means weddings and weddings mean money. Alternatives in both colour and design can be a smart financial move and serves to make your wedding that much more unique! The dresses featured in the photos above are stunning.
