Our wedding is officially almost a month away (one week and one month to be exact), and I couldn’t be more excited! I still have a lot of last minute details to finalize, but one thing that I was so excited about during this wedding planning process was our invitations. Tyronne and I are so happy with how our invitations turned out. They are the perfect amount of modern, chic and elegance. Plus, I love the gold foiling, which adds that hint of glam!
Planning a wedding is a whole range of emotions. It can be fun and exciting at times and it can be a bit stressful and overwhelming at other times. With my wedding quickly approaching, I am finding more and more little details that I need to address. One of the most helpful things I have done while planning my wedding is booked an appointment at David’s Bridal to meet with a stylist. I cannot begin to tell you how helpful their stylists are.
Our wedding is now only 146 days away, and that means putting together all the final touches. One of the first things that a couple’s guests see are the Save the Dates. It sets the tone for the whole wedding and is the first impression that your guests will have until they receive their invitations. Personally, it was important to me to make a statement with our Save the Dates because I wanted it to be a good reflection of what our wedding will be like. Save the Dates (and wedding invitations) are essentially a reflection of our wedding day. Trust me, I took this job very seriously.
Today, I am beyond excited to be working with Simply Stylist and Dove as part of their new Amazing Moments campaign to share one of the amazing moments in my life that made me sweat. One of these moments actually recently happened – I finally said yes to the dress! I was surrounded by some of the most important women in my life as I decided to pick out my wedding dress; the single most important dress a woman will ever wear in her lifetime.
On that particular Saturday, I was so extremely nervous about looking for “the dress”. I had envisioned this gorgeous gown for as long as I could remember, but I had so much anxiety and was beyond nervous about actually saying yes to the gown that I would see pictures of for the rest of my life. It had to be perfect!
I can totally relate to Louisa, the woman in Dove’s new video, because I felt the same excited nerves she felt before making an important decision. But in her case, she was proposing! Dove put their Clinical Protection Antiperspirant to the test during Louisa’s proposal to the love of her life. Dove Clinical Protection offers undeniable wetness protection and has ¼ moisturizers to care for skin. It allows you to enjoy all of the most important moments of your life without worrying about staying fresh. I’ve been a loyal Dove user for years, and looking back, I’m so happy I chose to use Dove Clinical Protection when trying on wedding dresses.
Watching this video brought back all of the wonderful memories I have of Tyronne proposing to me at Boston College almost a year ago! On July 24th, we will be celebrating our one year engagement anniversary, so this video truly hit home for me.
PS- All of these dresses are not “the dress”. I won’t be sharing that until after the wedding!
Now, please enjoy Louisa’s romantic engagement story!
I want to say a huge thank you to Simply Stylist and Dove for sponsoring today’s post! Go to Dove.us/DoveClinicalProtection to learn more.

For this wedding post, I wanted to share with you all the gifts Tyronne and I sent to our bridal party to ask them to be apart of our wedding! We sent their packages out before Christmas so that they would have them for the holidays. For us, it was important to show how appreciative we are to the people we are closest to. Both of us each have 8 people in our respective parties, so there is a total of 16 people in our bridal party total. Yes, I know! That is a big party. But we have so many close friends and family members that we wanted to be apart of our special day.
For my bridesmaids, I sent them quite a few things. In terms of makeup, thanks to Lorac, I sent them each a Lorac Skinny Palette that I have heard great things about. I also sent them each a Lorac Alter Ego Lipgloss. I stopped into Anthropologie when I was searching for their gift boxes and found these Rose and Coconut Lip Salve. I thought they were a cute touch for my bridesmaids that don’t typically wear makeup all that often. For nails, Nails Inc. sent me their nail polish in the color “WhiteHall“, which is the perfect wedding shade. It is a pinkish-white shade that is perfect for all of our wedding festivities. And lastly, Amrita Singh graciously provided me with these gorgeous earrings that are so beautiful! I think they will look perfect on all of my girls because they are so classic.
For Tyronne’s groomsmen, we went a little bit simple. While shopping on Etsy and sending Tyronne a few options of what we can get his groomsmen, he loved the idea of personalized engraved money clips. We decided to engrave all of the money clips with the nickname that Tyronne calls each of them, which made it a little more special.
Everyone in our party received cards that stated “Will you be my….” (bridesmaid, matron of honor, maid of honor, best man, groomsmen). I thought this was a nice touch to finish their packages! Also, I purchased my bridesmaid boxes at Target, which I thought were perfect for the holiday season.
I hope this post provided you with some great ideas for asking your bridal party to participate in your wedding.
Thank you so much to all of the companies who assisted in making these gifts perfect!
A few weeks ago, Tyronne and I went to Indianapolis for our good friends wedding. As you may know, it gets pretty cold in Indianapolis, so I wanted to make sure I had a long sleeved long dress for the wedding. Funny story about this dress that I wore, I actually won it. Yes, you heard me correctly. I went to a Maker’s Shoe’s runway show to see their latest shoe designs, and I had a winning raffle ticket. I decided to go with this dress (that some of their models were wearing), and well, it came into good use. I have probably had this dress sitting in my closet for over 6 months, but better late than never.
I felt comfortable in this dress and felt like it was the perfect maxi for a winter wedding. Since it is so simple, I jazzed it up with a statement necklace and my favorite leopard clutch!

A few weeks ago, I wore this gorgeous red gown from Virgo’s Lounge to my friend Joanna’s wedding. I fell in love with the bead work and the style of this gown from the moment I laid eyes on it. I wanted to share this look with you all if you are planning on attending a black-tie wedding or a fancy holiday party this month! It is the perfect festive color for the season right now, and the gold bead work would pair wonderfully with nude or gold heels.
Since the top portion of the dress is so detailed, I opted out of wearing a necklace, so that you can focus on the off-the-shoulder cut. I paired the dress with my Vince Camuto gold diamond pave earrings, and my fabulous gold envelope clutch from Linell Ellis.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I am officially finished with my MBA! I submitted my final paper this evening and feel absolutely relieved to be finished! My parents took my out for a delicious Cuban dinner to celebrate (follow me on SnapChat to see all the festivities of this weekend at “BisousBrittany”). I am so happy that I can now focus on the holidays that are approaching so quickly, as well as plan for my Indianapolis trip next weekend and my upcoming New York City vacation!

You know how there are certain smells, songs, or clothing that remind you of particular events that have happened in your life? Well this dress will forever be my special/lucky/favorite dress! When I shot this look in Boston, I had no idea what I was in store for me that day. I knew I would be visiting with my college roommates and we would be going back to see Boston College, but I had no idea that Tyronne would propose to me later that afternoon (please see our engagement story here).
I purchased this dress on ASOS a few weeks before our trip to Boston. I loved how flowy it was, how light weight it looked and how comfortable/easy it appeared. Since it was the summer time, I really wanted a nice white dress, so this was a must. I was also obsessed with its off-the-shoulder detail. It was truly the perfect summer dress, but an even more perfect vacation dress!
I have not worn it since I got engaged on July 24 because I almost feel like it is too special to wear. Maybe when spring comes around, I will wear it again. It is now my good-luck dress and I don’t see myself ever parting from it.
Thank you so much for visiting with me! This week is officially my last week as a student. I am finished with my MBA this Sunday and I cannot be more happy! I will be doing more YouTube videos now that school is over, so if you have any video suggestions for me, please let me know!
