Have you seen the beyond-words-cute Chantelle Paige from Bridge to Bohemia? Well, she's going to be sharing a little glimpse of her life and wedding planning with us and our readers. To get started, Chantelle's sharing five occasions to wear white other than your big day. How adorable is above on Valentine's Day? We'll see if we can find out where this darling look came from too. We'll let Chantelle introduce herself and get right to it.
I'm Chantelle Paige from Bridge to Bohemia. Singer/songwriter turned fashion influencer/blogger. I was signed to Interscope Records in a band that toured all over Europe, so dang fun. Post touring, I re-connected with my high school sweetheart, got engaged, moved to San Francisco, started working for myself, and got a mini pet pig (that is now besties with my deaf doggie). I'm addicted to caffeine, have a perma-smile, and cannot wait to marry this handsome man on May 12, 2018!
1. Engagement Party
Your engagement party is the first time you get to bring all your loved ones together to celebrate. It’s the first “bridal” moment, and the first chance to be the only lady wearing white! I chose this amazing piece from Blessed are the meek (similar here). I topped my dress off with some platform heels, since I’m 5’5” and my man is a whole foot taller, literally (shoe pick here).
2. Bridal Shower
YAY! Whether it’s a couples shower or an all female soiree I’m sure presents and mimosas will make an appearance. Either way, it’s a great chance to wear a slightly more flirty and fun something white! I picked this halter style romper by Blessed are the meek (similar here) with the same grey heels from the engagement party. To top off this fun look, why not add some sunnies, but only if it’s outside #please
3. Bridal Brunch
Pre-wedding you’ll definitely have an all girls brunch date to discuss (or go try on) bridesmaids dresses OR to go say yes to your dress (so many decisions there, so exciting, oh my yay). Regardless, it’s helpful to have a playful lace dress on hand for this insanely special day! This particularly stunning dress is by Asilio (similar here) with a lack of color straw hat and Bedstu wedges. Have fun, let loose, and enjoy this AMAZING day!
4. Bachelorette Party Outfit
If there is ever a time to let loose, it’s today! So why not wear some lingerie with a mini skirt? Feel sexy, empowered, and confident… you have your bride babes there with you watching your back! I chose this amazing bralette (less expensive here), a sexy teddy (bra/teddy combo here), then paired it with a lace mini skirt (less expensive here). To tie in my girls who are wearing all black dresses, I paired it with a black lack of color hat and some sexy tie up heels! Have some drinks, text your fiance and tell him you miss him, and dance the night away with your girls!
5. Rehearsal Dinner
The last white dress before THE white dress. Today is a day of excitement, giddiness, and butterflies (the good kind). Something soft, midi length, and gorgeous is in order. My dress is by Elliatt (similar here and here, less expensive here) and paired with a nude stiletto (Christian Louboutin to die for pump here). After all the toasts, hugs, and cheers are over… go give your fiance one last final kiss goodnight, and make it a good one, cause it’s your last single gal kiss… ever ;)
