Carrie Bradshaw Wedding

One of my favorite episode of Sex and the City was when Carrie got stood up for a date by Alexander Petrovsky. Not, obviously, because she got stood up, but because of the stunning Versace dress she was wearing. Honestly, the most tragic part of this episode was that she didn’t get to wear that dress out! I mean hey, we all knew that Alexander wasn’t the guy for her.

For a Carrie Bradshaw styled wedding with a modern, New York in fall vibe, pair different shades of purple with grays and blacks and incorporate offbeat and modern centerpieces like artichokes.

If you like this chic, New York City wedding vibe, you’ll probably also like: long island city.

  1. I loved Carrie’s time in Paris, but hated Alexander Patrovksy. LOL – as if they are real people!!

    Anyhow, Carrie wore some gorgeous dresses (including the one above) when she was dating Alexander. I didn’t always like her style – but that dress above was beyond amazing!!!

    • ok, at first I loved him because he was cool and Russian, BUT then yea – not so much. And for SATC style, I always considered myself more of a Charlotte than a Carrie – Carrie rocked her look but sometimes I was like “omg your bra is on the outside of your clothing!”

  2. Swoon…that dress was just stunning. Carrie had the most incredible Paris wardrobe!

  3. Ooooh this is such a gorgeous board, so rich and sumptuous! THAT incredible dress gives me chills, loved that episode too (not a fan of Alexander P though…I always wanted her to end up with Aiden!) xx
