Style Spotting: Mr. & Mrs. Receveur * Louisville Wedding

This past weekend was a whirlwind of wedding festivities for a seriously wonderful couple – Lee Wilkinson & John Receveur. These two crazy kids tied the knot on Saturday and to say it was a fun weekend would be an understatement. We were lucky enough to attend a wonderful bbq Thursday, a Derby-themed rehearsal dinner at the Derby Museum Friday and the main event at Louisville Country Club – each more fun than the last.

Between the toasts, catching up with far away friends and hitting the dance floor (I love me some wedding dancing), I snapped some pictures of friends & their ‘fits. Thanks to Lee, John and their families for such a fun time.

Styling: On the Hunt for the Perfect Rehearsal Dinner Dress

Wedding season is in FULL swing. We’ve already been to five weddings this year and we’re barely into June. One wedding I am looking forward to is our friends Caitlin & Alex who will be getting married this August. As Caitlin and I discussed all the fun details of the wedding, she asked if I had any suggestions on where to find a great rehearsal dinner dress.

Locally in Louisville, I know the stylish ladies at Clodhoppers, Blink, Circe, Rodeo Drive, Peacock Boutique and Dress & Dwell could definitely help her pin down a great option – but it’s always good to have some ideas when you’re heading out.  I love the tradition of wearing white to your rehearsal dinner but with a twist. Wearing white also gives you the fun option of wearing bright heels, fun jewelry or even a flower or headband in your hair. So here’s some different options that would make any bride-to-be shine at the rehearsal dinner.

p.s. – any of these would make perfect getaway dresses too!

p.s. – if you get this dress, you MUST get the shoes too.

A touch of color for an outdoor affair. Lily Pullitzer Delia Dress

Going through all these dresses makes me want to throw another wedding (well, kinda – for the fun but I just wish it was free!). You don’t have to be a bride to sport one of these dresses, just make sure you steer clear of wearing them to any wedding festivities.
