Wedding Season

by - July 28, 2015

If you could re-plan your wedding, what would you change?
I often ask myself that question when I see all these beautiful pictures of so many creative and innovative ways people are getting married these days: driftwood arbors on the beach, vintage dressers, candy bars, there are so many really novel ideas out there.  Luckily, my brother and his fiancée just set their wedding date for next September, so I get to dream vicariously through Jen.

If it were entirely up to me, I think I would get re-married on a beach and I may be saying that because my brother in law's family just did that for their parents' 40th wedding anniversary in Hawaii.  I thought it was the most romantical thing ever.
Summer is a wonderful time for weddings, isn't it?  There are so many options for location and venues when you can get married in the great outdoors and the sunsets are so magnificent in the prairie skies that you'd be silly not to use that as part of the decor.
But what would I know, I got married in the dead of winter at -33.

Now, if I could do it all over again  I would choose a polar opposite style to what we had 10 years ago,  because I love the fresh summer air and would want to take advantage of that.

Thankfully, I was contacted by PickedDresses to write a post about their selection of beach wedding dresses Canada, which goes perfectly with my daydreams of re-affirming my vows to my handsome husband on a beach with my little family in tow.

First off, man, I sure wish that online shopping was a thing 10 years ago because wow, would that have changed how I looked for dresses.  Yes, I would have gone around and done the obligatory trying on with my besties. But what would be different if I were to be planning a wedding now, is that I would be seriously considering finding something online for a better price.  The selection of dresses at PickedDresses is fantastic. and because I know exactly what I would pick for my beach wedding, it would be simple to narrow down the choices.

Here are my top picks for beach wedding dresses:

1- I love the back on this dress.  Visit the link underneath to see it.
 2- you must visit the link and see the beautiful bow on the back of the dress!!!!
 3- Classic!
 4- I love everything about this dress.
 5- But I also love everything about this one.

In reality, I think I would pick either 4 or 5.  I think they are timeless and classy and give off that vintage vibe.  What I also love about this website is the colour selection for every dress; there's no need to pick white!  
For my soon to be sister in law, I would pick the first one, because of the back.  
But seriously girls, I might just pick them all because I don't know about you, but an hour into our reception I was seriously wishing I had two dresses.  And you know what, had I known about this site, I could have had 3 for the price of my one dress!!!

So, tell me.  What would you pick?

In the spirit of full disclosure, this is a sponsored post for which I received compensation. All opinions expressed are 110% mine and completely honest.  I now want to go try on wedding dresses.  Let's make 11 year wedding anniversary vow renewals (with new dresses for all) a thing.

  1. Yes, yes to vow renewals. I think every girl should get to remarry their husband a few times! I love wedding dresses - I think I would pick number 4 for myself but they're all beautiful.

  2. I want to get married again!!! LOL! We actually did a vow renewal at 10 years and I wore a "wedding'ish" dress but super simple and nothing amazing like these! 2 was actually a lot like my original dress. If I had to do it over, I would choose 3!!! SO CLASSIC! XO

  3. We should do a group post on replanning our wedding!

  4. So funny, I have a draft on what I would do different at my wedding in my drafts folder! I love wedding dresses too, all the ones you picked out so timeless and perfect! I love 4 and 5, but I think 2 would look best on me.

  5. I love your story of what your sweet hubby pulled off for you!!!

  6. Jealous. I really want to do a vow renewal!
