Loverly Dream Day Style Challenge

Loverly, your online guide to planning a wedding, asked me to style a wedding dress based on the picture-perfect setting of my choice. While I am not getting married anytime soon, I have definitely thought about my ultimate wedding venue. What girl hasn't? When asked if I would prefer the beach, the city or a rustic backdrop, I was torn. I would love to get married on the beach, but I am intrigued by the glamour of a chic city wedding. So here are my two styled looks based on finds from Loverly and around the web with an East/West twist of course!

Loverly Beach Wedding | Bangles and Bungalows


1 / 2: EARRINGS, BANGLE / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7

Loverly City Wedding | Bangles and Bungalows


1 / 2: HEAD JEWEL, BANGLE / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 

Which look is your favorite? What's your ideal wedding venue? Have you tried Loverly?
