Five Pairs of Bridal Shoes that aren’t Boring

Here at VOF we love a little bling (if you’ve followed our posts at all, you already know this). Needless to say, typical bridal shoes leave us feeling a little underwhelmed. While Kate Spade and BHLDN have some bridal shoe options that make our hearts beat a little faster, we totally encourage you to break out of the mold and look for your wedding shoes in unexpected places. If you’ve got a long time to plan, sales can be your best friend. Below you’ll find a few of our current favorites. Please share yours in the comments!

VOF’s Favorite Bridal Collections from

VOF has been swooning over Bridal Fashion Week. No matter your Bridal style, you can’t help but to melt over the beautiful details and variety of styles. Here are just a few of VOF’s favorite Bridal Collections from!

Armani Privé is for the modern girl trying to make a statement. How could you not love this collection?


Here at VOF, we have a motto about Chanel… it’s pretty simple, Chanel NEVER fails us. We love the elegant use of fabrics, flowing textures, and breathless beauty of this collection.


Marchesa has a way with creating antique beauty that almost no one can compete with. We love the layered fabrics and intricate details in this collection.


Who could resist the regal designs that Christian Dior never fails to create. We love the billowing fabrics and royal feel in this collection.



A Glamorous Affair

Inspiration for a Glamorous Affair
It’s been awhile since I’ve gotten a chance to post. Thanks W for picking up my slack! As W mentioned, I have been beyond consumed with wedding planning. Some might say I’m slightly obsessed, considering I have over a year till the big day, but what can I say, the VOF girls LOVE weddings.
While I’ve been pinteresting up a storm, cutting up bridal magazines, pouring over 100 Layer Cake, Style Me Pretty, Snippet & Ink and many more, I did find the time to finally watch The Great Gatsby. All I can say is “GASP!” I know there was a lot of discussion over this film, but as a self-professed obsessor over all things pretty, I was in love. To get to the point, this movie inspired my planning even more. Check out what I am thinking as I plan my glamorous affair!



Statement Earrings

Statement Earrings

Now that I’ve purchased my dress, I’m looking for some statement earrings that will really, you know, make a statement. I love the current selection from BHLDN. Each of the pairs above would highlight the champagne undertones of my dress and also compliment my blush bridesmaids dresses.  Leave a comment telling us which pair you like best!
