short dresses for a springtime wedding in paris

La météo may be saying something different, but as of yesterday it is officially Springtime in Paris. Before you know it the scarves will come off, the oversized “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” shades will come out, and the terraces will once again be buzzing with the hub-bub of Paris that we’ve all missed so much these past months.

As in most parts of the world, the arrival of Spring in France also sees the kick-off of wedding season. Here’s a sneak peek at some of my favorite short and sassy Parisian wedding dresses (for all budgets!) from Printemps/Ete 2013 to get you in the mood for the warm weather ahead:

a fun & funky winter wedding inspiration shoot in paris

L-O-O-O-V-I-N-G this sweet video of the  highlights of a recent winter wedding inspiration shoot in Paris pulled together by the fabulously talented Nessa at La Mariée Aux Pieds Nus. Warning: You’ll be whistling this tune for the rest of the day!


Now if watching that isn’t enough to get you to chuck it all in, grab your beau by the hand and hop a plane to get hitched in Paris,  Nessa is also one of the masterminds behind Love, Etc.- (the ONLY Paris wedding show that matters, IMHO) which is happening this Saturday from 10:00 - 7:00PM at La Cartonnerie.  Many of the vendors from this shoot will be strutting their stuff LIVE at Love, Etc.- so you won’t want to miss it!

a very british affair - the best of british bridal in paris

The very last drop of  Indian Summer that we had here in Paris this year happened the last Friday of Fashion Week. I remember because this was the same night of the “A Very British Affair” wedding event,  which highlighted the best in British bridal to be found on either side of the pond. Tucked away inside the most deliciously discrete voie privée in St-Germain- des-Près,  the private townhouse where this event was held was the perfect venue to host this intimate gathering of some of the UK’s bridal éliteStephanie Allin, Nicki MacFarlane, Hermione Harbutt, Ruth Shaw from Harriet Wilde Shoes and representatives of Sylvia Weinstock Cakes Ltd from the U.S. sipped cocktails on the terrace, while ballroom dancers (led by American in Paris danseur en résidence , Marc Reed) and live jazz musicians swept us away on a cloud of utter Parisian fantasy. I was able to sit down and chat with most of them after the event and will share our conversations in upcoming posts, but in the meantime, here are a few images from that magical evening:stephanie-allin-in-parisbritish-wedding-show-in-paristop to bottom, left to right: sorbet-colored flower girl dresses, nicki macfarlane. noir headdress (black swarovski crystals and onyx): hermione harbutt. gown detail: stephanie allin, swarovski crystal heart booties: hariett wilde. bridesmaid and flower girl collections, nicki macfarlane. parisian townhouse at night, lit up from the inside. laser cut invitations: cutture. paris dance instructor: marc reed,
