If ever there was a dress to build a wedding theme around, it’s got to be this gold and ivory winner from BHLDN. Kristin and Scott dreamt of a laid-back atmosphere on their big day, and the effortless blend of gold glitter and wood elements helped them realize that dream. Thanks to With Love & Embers and Monica’s Floral Design for your work on this one!

From the bride, Kristin: I really think my BHLDN dress set the tone of our wedding. Once I got that dress, everything else just came together! We wanted the wedding to feel like us – fun, but not over the top. And definitely not cookie-cutter. We wanted a laid-back atmosphere. We spent a lot of time and attention to every detail; we were thrilled with how everything turned out.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Put your foot down where needed. If you have a vision for your day of how it should feel or look- do it!! People can be quick to question your plans or shoot them down. Don’t let them! Also, if you are planning a DIY wedding, get all of your projects done way in advance. I thought I started really early with everything but still found myself stressed two weeks before! Lastly, don’t sweat the small stuff. Things will go wrong BUT everything will come together perfectly.
