First of all, thank you sincerely for all the love and congratulations that flooded into my DM’s last week. After a surreal wedding week surrounded by our closest friends and family, we are officially Mr. & Mrs. I have so many details and stories to share with you- from my bridal wardrobe to the wedding day details that were months in the making and came to life like magic. More on that later… once we return from our Italian honeymoon.

For now, I could not wait to share my wedding week outfits. Let me disclose that some of the pieces are pricey. To be fair, I waited and collected bridal wear for two years and I wasn’t about to host our families at The Ritz Carlton in Maui wearing what I had in my closet. I feel like I’m not a lonely bride in the department of splurging on bridal wear. Right?!
Rehearsal Dinner Look
Okay, y’all asked and you shall receive…
This was the star of the show for my rehearsal dinner. I wore a size 2 and she was snug but stunning! I knew I wanted something different and unique for the rehearsal night and this top was all that and some.
This simple but stunning silk skirt did not disappoint. It paired perfectly with my pearl top and is definitely a piece I will be rewearing. For reference, I wore a size xs.
I may have ended up barefoot (duh) but these tied the outfit together so beautifully! I love them.
Bridal Party Getting Ready Outfits
These beauties are Nadine Merabi’s Darcie pajamas in a size small. The bridesmaids wore pink while I wore white and they are as silky and gorgeous as you can imagine! I went with these because they are a half the price of the popular Sleeper pajamas but still high quality. You can also get a similar look with these from boohoo or these from Nasty Gal look alikes.
My beloved after-party dress. The outfit change was so fun (but sadly not well photographed). This was almost my rehearsal dinner look, but this dress was just too fun not to join the after party. The pearl detail and tulle made me feel like an after-party princess and I danced the night away.
This Wild Fox dress has been in my closet for a couple of years now (looking at you 984 day engagement). So unfortunately I can’t find it anywhere online, but I think this one or any of the suggestions below could be your perfect fit!
This may have been my favorite wedding weekend outfit! It’s a bright white with just enough lacey delicate detail and ruffles for a flare. It would be perfect for a rehearsal dinner, but I couldn’t wait that long to wear it! I’m in a size small, for reference, but I don’t have any great photos in it.
This romantic ivory piece screamed bridal wear to me! Pair with jeans for a more casual look or dress it up with white pants or silk skirt. You really can’t go wrong and it is a piece you can wear again… maybe on an Italian honeymoon ;). I wear a size small!
Are you sensing a theme? This dress is so me and it was the perfect add-on to my beachy bridal wardrobe. I wore a size small!
I’m a sucker for a 2 peice set. This lace look could have been anything from welcome party to after party and every event in between. For reference, I wear a size small.
There are so many ways this dress can be worn – the tie sleeves can be worn as shown, as a halter, or strapless. You can also wear it with or without the sash and the delicate layers make it a flowy goddess design. It would also be precious with a bump! I wore a size small.
Tropic Like It’s Hot
I went with a tried, true, and loved brand for beach-wear. This easy, breezy cover up dress runs big, so I sized down to an xs.
If you know me, you know I have a couple versions of this in my closet. I love a versatile long button down cover up so had to have this one in white for the tropical wedding week! Size small.
From Elce, this was possibly my most complimented and most worn bridal fit. It’s an Australlian brand (on brand) and feels like butter. I think it’s pretty flattering on different bodies and it’ll be in my wardrobe for a long time! For size reference, I’m a medium on top and bottom.
As I’m currently honeymooning on the other side of it all, I regret nothing… and of course packed lots of this for Italy!
