Sustainable Style Wedding

diane-looking-like-a-rock-starMy sister is getting married! She is 52 and he is 50 something. It is the first marriage for each of them. My sister first noticed him while on a group hike in the White Mountains. A lady in the group fell and he was the first to offer her assistance. Sweet, right.

My sister is letting me help her style the wedding. The groom is happy to let us take control of the style of the wedding. He is in charge of getting the marriage license and something involving a bicycle built for two. 🙂

Let’s start with the dress. Both Diane and I love vintage. The dress below is one that I really love but Diane doesn’t. It is harder than I thought it would be to find a vintage wedding dress. So many of them were designed for a young bride. Diane wants something that is modest and simple and appropriate for her age.

There are three bridesmaids in the wedding. We will all wear jewel tones. I’m leaning towards emerald.

My dress choice depends on Diane’s dress choice. If she goes with a long sophisticated dress I’ll wear something glamorous like the dress above. If she wears something summery and short or tea length, I might wear something like this dress below.

The wedding ceremony will be held outside with a view of the White Mountains. The reception is in a brookside bistro. Diane wants, as much as possible, for the day to be stress free. She wants the day to be easy and fun. The bridesmaids will carry baby’s breath. The tables will be decorated with rosemary.

    I have a wedding dress – I think is is about size 12 + or – and is clean and in a box. Silk in a Victorian style.

      Sherry, How sweet of you. I think Diane wants/needs a 50s style dress, or a modern retake on a 50s style. It is what looks best on her body. xo jam
