Allure with Decor  teamed up with photographer Olivia Leigh Photography to create a cowgirl bridal shower that could easily translate to a fabulous wedding as well.

You will find a perfectly set table with hand picked desserts including the delicious mason jar blueberry shortcake below. Yes … you can find that blueberry shortcake recipe here. The spurs on the boots most certainly would be the styled to perfection bride. How cute would you look in this tulle skirt and crisp denim shirt tied to together with macrame belt?

Lilly Pulitzer Wedding

Bridesmaid in Lilly Pulitzer dress

Now here’s a new one! This entire wedding was built around the bride and her mothers shared love of the clothing company Lilly Pulitzer. Known for its funky and fun patterns, the Lilly Pulitzer theme made for an extremely vibrant wedding day that we could not get enough of! There is tons more to see of Dennis and Emily’s bold pattern wedding in Pennsylvania, so don’t miss a single moment, captured by Amie Schroeder Photography. Visit the full gallery.

The Lilly Pulitzer Lifestyle

From the Bride: Growing up, I fell in love with the happy prints of Lilly Pulitzer after my mom took me to my very first Lilly Pulitzer sale. This became a yearly tradition with my sisters and mom, she truly lived the Lilly Pulitzer happy and bright lifestyle! My mom passed away 3 years ago, and just two years ago I landed my dream job as an accountant at Lilly Pulitzer. Having Lilly Pulitzer bridesmaid dresses made me feel like my mom was there with us on our wedding day!

Handmade Accessories

I love to craft and wanted to make the wedding have a personal touch, so I made the groomsmen, fathers, and ring bearers their bow ties, as well as the flower girl hair bows. I also made the programs, the menus, all of the chalkboards, the centerpiece jars, the place cards and place card door, and the photo booth props.

Make A Shot List

A piece of advice I would give is to make a really detailed shot list for your photographer. Include people’s names, so your photographer can quickly call out who should be in each shot. Have a family member look over the list to make sure you get all the shots you want for your wedding! We had a big wedding party (and even bigger family) that this made things really easy for us to ensure we got all of the pictures we wanted.

Savor The Moment

My advice for brides to be is to really savor the moment. You spend so much time planning, and figuring out all the little details. The day itself goes so quickly! Take some time with your new hubby and take it all in! It is the best day of your life that is over in the blink of an eye!

Jamberry Nail Tutorial + Nail Inspiration

Jamberry nail tutorial

How much do you love glamming up your nails? But how much of a pain is it to drag out your nail polish and then there’s the time you spend waiting for it all to dry. Ugh!

We are here to say that Jamberry is the greatest thing on the planet, because it eliminates all the waiting around time. Not sure you can make the switch over, or worried about learning a new process? Keep scrolling and you will see just how easy Jamberry Nail Wraps can be! And stay tuned for a super cute wedding nail inspiration shoot captured by Cyrience Creative Studios!

Jamberry Materials

measure and cut nail wrap

From Cyrience Creative Studios:
As someone who is not too adept at painting her nails, I love how easy Jamberry Nail Wraps are to apply all by yourself. It’s a great activity that brides and their bridal parties can do during a bridal shower, bachelorette party or the night before of the wedding. I got together with my friend and Jamberry Independent Consultant, Jenn Brown to capture step-by-step just how easy they are to apply.

Materials:

Jamberry Nail Wraps, Nail file, Cuticle scissors, Nail clippers, Orange sticks, Nail wipes, Nail buffer & Jamberry heater

Step One:

Size up the wraps to your fingers. The clear sheets they come on help make it measure. Peel off half of the wrap and cut in half, the other half can be used for the same nail on your opposite hand. The wrap should be longer than your nail, you will cut it to fit once it has adhered to your nail.

Step Two:

Hold the wrap with an orange stick or tweezers and heat until the wrap starts to curl. You can use the Jamberry heater (shown here) or even a hairdryer works well!

Step Three:

Starting at the center base of your nail bed, apply the wrap. Use an orange stick to smooth the wrap up the center of your nail and out to sides, pressing firmly as you go. Hold your nail up to your heat source for 3-5 seconds, longer if using a metallic wrap. Press firmly on the wrap with your fingers or orange stick to completely seal the wrap onto your nail.
 

Step Four:

Once cool, use nail scissors or clippers to trim the wrap to the tip of your fingernail, then file off the excess by repeatedly filing in a downward motion. Feel free to place nail in front of heat source for a few more seconds and press firmly on the tips to make sure the ends have sealed.

Repeat:

Repeat the process on the rest of your nails and you’re set! No dry-time downtime. At first, applications may take up to 30 minutes, but the more you do them, the faster you become!

Jenn and I had so much fun, we thought why not bring in some brides to show off just how gorgeous your nails can look alongside a few beautiful gowns?! Our models Valerie and Katelyn loved getting in on the action and applying the wraps themselves before getting into a stunning collection of gowns from Jenny Yoo. We wanted to showcase a few different ways you can customize your wedding day nails.
