styled around the gown – exotic allure

With an exotic type of allure, today’s beautiful ivory stretch satin wedding dress from Sincerity is a complete knockout. It has me dreaming of a fabulous destination wedding in a desert oasis – somewhere with a lot of heat and glamour!

Ivory satin backless wedding dress from Sincerity

  1. Sincerity’s knockout wedding dress features a slimming silhouette and a gorgeous sweetheart neckline. A sweeping train also adds to the glamour of this beauty.
  2. If you’re going exotic – go exotic! I’ve seen weddings with everything from elephants to leopards, borrowed from shelters in exchange for a donation towards their welfare. It adds a certain something and gives back too.
  3. Figs are among the easiest fruits to grow in a desert climate so incorporating them into your sultry destination wedding is a fabulous idea. I love them here, as a cake topper.
  4. Pulling the purple from the figs, this calligraphy wedding invitation is a dazzling touch of charm to kick off your festivities with.
  5. Signature fig cocktails are never amiss!
  6. Line the aisle with a regal row of ceramic elephants topped with lush and colorful floral designs.
