Beaded wedding dress from Lillian West

  1. Lillian West’s wedding dress reads vintage beauty while still bringing a dose of show-stopping glamour to your entire look.
  2. To mimic the pearl detailing on the wedding dress, pearlize the icing on your cake!
  3. Eclectic tabletop details and candlelight that mimics vintage Parisian flea market styles sets the stage for a romantic reception.
  4. Have champagne – and lots of it! Nothing denoted a celebration quite like some bubbly.
  5. Set your reception tables with gold plate chargers, vintage napkins, and adorable details to delight your guests.
  6. Nothing says timeless glamour or old-world beauty quite like calligraphy. The calligraphy wedding invitation and menu in the image below are simply charming!
