Wedding Shower Looks for the Bride and her Guests: 2 of 2

Welcome to the second installment of wedding shower looks for the bride and her guests! It is so fun for me to reminisce on Megan's wedding shower weekend with her sweet friends and family.  

I am absolutely in love with this darling Lilly Pulitzer dress on the gorgeous Jeannette.  The zipper was a little piece of bamboo-- too cute! 

Beautiful Jamie and her beautiful mom!
I love the idea of a classic black maxi dress and a statement necklace. Jamie texted me prior to the shower and said, "Dear Belle, is a black maxi too morbid for the shower?" Haha! I said, no way! I knew she'd look gorgeous in anything, but I especially love how she brightened up the dress with her fun jewelry. 
Baublebar is a go-to for me for statement jewelry at a very reasonable price point. 
Funky, trendy necklaces: here, here, here and here

My mom with her comfy Lilly Pulitzer dress. Look familiar?  
Similar here and here.

Sweet Lauren had the most adorable dress on from Francesca's. (Seen here with her Bloody Mary skewer- haha!). 
Long tassel necklaces are HUGE right now and so versatile. 
Here and here are other cute necklaces similar to Lauren's!

Halle, Jeannette and Reshma totally embraced the patterns for Megan's breathtaking outdoor shower.
Fun, patterned dress options: here, here, here, here, here and here

Kimmy, one of Megan's sisters and maids of honor, also went with an adorable patterned dress. 
I told her to pose with the table-- haha!

Here's our bride Megan in here white Nordstrom's dress and Jimmy Choo nude wedges with her bestie, Haleigh! 
I loved that Megan's dress had tasteful, dainty cut-outs that showed just a smidge of her skin. Here is a great option, under $100. I loved the delicate detail! I love this strapless option, too! You can't go wrong in the summertime with a LWD!  Here, here and here, here are other fab options!
This is one of my all-time faves; it's even on sale!

I wear this striped Anthropologie dress SO often. I originally bought it in 2013 for my friend Caitlin's wedding rehearsal dinner, and then I also wore it for my sister's rehearsal dinner. Since then, I've worn it for my first day of work this year, to lector at mass, and for other showers. It's a showstopper. However, it is old. But, here, here, here, here, here and here are some great alternatives! 

The bride with one of our best childhood friends, Alyssa! SOO wonderful to see her and catch up over dinner at my mom's! :) 

The high school besties! 

Amanda's tunic (second from the left) incorporates the embroidered trend that is so popular right now! It is boho chic. Also, her Louis Vuitton "Never Full" is majorly swoon worthy! It is an absolute heirloom. 

How darling are the details on this bloody Mary bar?

I love Megan's collection of Alex and Ani bangles. She is actually the person who introduced me to Alex and Ani! 

I think this is one of the most amazing gifts I've ever received, so I had to get one for Megan, too. It's their wedding invitation engraved on a vase! My cousin Lori got one made for me, my sister and my mom with our wedding invitations! It's such a great way to memorialize your invitation! 
This talented guy does it, and he ships anywhere in the country. He did it so quickly, too!

Megan's sweet pal, Haleigh, made the large H board for her new last name and these beautiful wine bottle decorations!

Pretty bridesmaids!

Halle was incredible at making the bow bouquet! It will be perfect for the rehearsal!

Megan being Megan. hahaha! Love her. 

The SHOES. These are Megan's wedding shoes, and to say they're perfect is an understatement. These nude Jimmy Choo wedges will be worn time and time again in the coming years. They're comfortable and classic-- I adore them!

How cute is my bestie? Just a little under a month until we get to celebrate her in Nashville, and then another month-ish until the nuptials! 

The bridesmaids-- just missing Reema and Crea!

Jimmy! The groom-to-be. Another GORGEOUS bouquet of flowers! 

Love my L-si!

Jimmy's watch was AWESOME.
Watch: Michael Kors

And just some Miura pictures (Amanda and Darren's absolutely PRECIOUS daughter) to make your day!
