I'm engaged! I mentioned it on Instagram a few months ago, but I haven't mentioned it on the blog until now.

Since I recently (is last December still considered recent?) got engaged to my best friend, I thought it would be fun to post little updates and fun wedding inspirations once in a while.

Wedding planning has never been my forté. I was not that little girl daydreaming/planning her inevitable big day. I am a methodical thinker and planner in most things, but my own wedding wasn’t one of them. A big wedding is not my scene (one reason being that I don’t have an unlimited supply of extended family to fill a ballroom). I was really pushing for a destination wedding but I was unsuccessful in convincing the Beau to agree.

Instead, we are planning a classically simple and intimately romantic affair with our family and closest friends.

To start this sporadic series—which will not have a title because I couldn't think of anything more original than Wedding Wednesdays... although that one does roll off the tongue a bit better than Matrimonial Mondays, don’t you think?—I wanted to show you some dress inspirations. I haven’t gone for a fitting yet—I am planning to book a couple soon, but I haven’t found the time and I figure I still have plenty of it (time, that is).

Anyway, here is a collage of pictures I snagged off Pinterest/Instagram. I think my biggest inspiration comes from Olivia Palermo. Her general style is swoon-worthy but what I love most about her wedding style is it's authenticity to her personality and it's simplicity.

P.S. Happy Canada Day, friends! :)
