To sweet baby smiles…

This couldn’t be a more perfect addition to our weekly roundup of Robin Hooding. And while I realize this last treasure is not a traditional “wedding” find, my tres adorablae niece makes it totally legit (not biased at all).

What have been your favorite finds this week? Any gorgeous gowns? Beautiful bouquets? Fabulous photographs? Please share!

 

It’s a shoe thing…part uno

Destination “I Do’s” can be one of the funnest ways to start your lives as husband and wife, but there are a few compromises that you might have to think about along the way. Especially when it comes to the wedding ensemble.

When I went to my pick out my dress, the consultants tried to steer me toward flowy chiffon and airy tulle dresses. But I was adamant I didn’t want my destination to dictate the dress. So for better, for worse I’ll be wearing a satin gown next month on the beaches of Mexico. With these heels.

Practical? No. Silly? Perhaps.

Perfect? Definitely! At least for me.

Just because there may be sea and sand doesn’t mean you can’t have satin and sparkles. And one of the best ways to bring bling to the beach is with some stylish sandals like these!

Or if you’re looking for even more bling, try one of these crystalized creations.

But what I truly love is a sandal I stumbled across in my many adventures of wedding “Robin Hooding”.

If you haven’t already heard of them or seen these, I highly suggest hoping over to seko designs – but the quick summary is that these loverly sandals are handmade by women in Uganda who are earning money for their education.

How could you not want to buy these after hearing about their story?

I have quite a few other sandaled soles for the perfect beachy wedding, but in an effort not to bombard you I’m going to restrain myself from visual overload. But why you’re awaiting post dos how about sharing which of these glamorous options would you pick for the most special walk of your life?
